Passivhaus Marlegno in Bolgare, Italy by Marlegno

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

Article source: Marlegno

Passivhaus Marlegno is a single family house on two levels situated in Bolgare (BG), Northern Italy.

ECO-SUSTAINABILITY is the key word of this project: its structure consists in wooden load bearing walls and floors made of wooden joists assembled without glues, thanks to an innovative construction system called Tavego.

Raw materials come exclusively from Italian PEFC certified forests. This allows Marlegno to take full advantage of the ecological characteristics of a natural material such as wood, reducing GHG emissions and making the interior spaces healthier.

Atelier Nagel in San Sebastián, Spain by Hoz Fontan Architects

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

Article source: Hoz Fontan Architects

A three floor cubical volume is located next to a late XIX century villa. The new building is linked to the villa by means of a galvanized steel and glass-made set of stairs that allows the cast of indirect natural light not only on the villa, but also on the new atelier, marking the entrance point of both of them. The atelier is defined by a galvanized steel-made framework and by perforated slabs to allow the entrance of natural light. On the other hand, the villa´s terrace is meant to be a view-point on the garden, removing some parts of the railing by selecting the ground materials and filtering the sunlight with sunshaders, softening the transition between the inside and outside parts of the house.

Article source: Twins Studio

With its 80-indoor seat capacity and other 80 on the open terrace, the place is located at the ground floor of Ethos House office building, but the few climbing stairs give the impression of being at height.

Jiu Jian Tang in Shanghai, China by Rocco Design Architects Ltd

Sunday, September 4th, 2016

Article source: Rocco Design Architects Ltd

As a luxurious mansion built for 21st Century living, Mandarin Court (Jiu Jang Tang) villas have inherited the spirit of traditional Chinese courtyard residences, which is most vividly expressed in their spatial articulation, interplay of light and spaces, and the subtlety in material usage. Yet, despite the strong cultural resonance, the design of the villas has rejected outright on any revivalist gesture or pastiche symbolism. Instead, an uncompromisingly modern and unpompous approach has been taken to honestly reflect the times where the buildings belong.
