Thursday, May 8th, 2014

Article source: Khosla Associates

The house is located in Chowara, a fishing village, 30 minutes from Thiruvananthapuram, in Kerala, South India.

Perched 200 ft. above an expansive stretch of green along the Arabian Sea coast, at the edge of a cliff, its most prominent feature is an asymmetrical sloping roof set against the fronds of a coconut plantation. Opening its embrace to the warm sea breezes, the home covers an area of 1397 sqm. A skewed 45m long sheer concrete wall supporting the single lightweight triangulated canopy roof lunges out towards the view. The external and internal finishes are polished cement, concrete and rough slate juxtaposed against warm slatted timber and naturallocal kotastone. Furniture and accessories are kept to a minimal, so that the focus doesn’t stray from the natural environment.

Offices Lille in Euralille, France by LAN Architecture

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

Article source: LAN Architecture

In 1990, in his preface titled “Quantum Leap” for the work presenting the Euralille project[1], Rem Koolhaas wrote: “In our contemporary world, programs become abstract in the sense that they are no longer tied to a specific place or city. They float and gravitate opportunistically around those places that provides them with the most connections.” And then, “All these facts describe a new condition that is at once local and global, as important for the “Japanese” as it is for the “Lillois.”
