Monterroso Health Center in Lugo, Spain by Abalo Alonso Arquitectos

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

Article source: Abalo Alonso Arquitectos

Monterroso is a small village in the province of Lugo famous for its annual fair, more than five hundred years old, celebrated on the Day of the Dead. As often happens in these cases, the health center covers an area larger than the core of the city, and a significantly aging population. To the northwest corner of the block, the bus stop acquires a significant importance, whereas the possible relationship with the municipal headquarters to the northeast is less important.

The archaeological site of Can Tacó in Turó d’en Roina, in the natural setting of  Turons de les Tres Creus. In a highly fragmented metropolitan area, arises the need to project some places previous an area with a great natural and archaeological interests.

Built by successive terracing and partly with site stone licorella, what had been an important settlement prior to construction of the Via Augusta, is today a natural viewpoint to the counties of Vallès. It intervenes in the backfill of Roman traces, improving the content (the space) and highlighting the container (the walls).

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

Article source: Daniel Bonilla Arquitectos

This small format residential building is located in a small plot in front of an urban park (El Virrey park). Its concept is the reinterpretation of the previously existing house architecture, consisting of a first floor basement and an overriding superposed box on the second floor. As part of the concept, it was repeated three times in order to create a sequence between mass and void.

Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa by KPMB Architects

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

Article source: KPMB Architects

The Canadian Museum of Nature (CMN) was the first purpose built museum in the country. It is now recognized for the interdependence of its learning and research components and a collection that includes 10 million specimens gathered over 150 years. The original building – known as the Victoria Memorial Museum Building (VMMB) – was designed in the Beaux-Arts Style by David Ewart. Shortly after its completion in 1912, the stone tower began to sink into the ground. In 1915, the upper part of the tower was removed to de-load the structure, leaving the base as the main entrance vestibule but consequently diminishing the building’s original composition, and impacting the original clarity of the Beaux Arts plan.

Villa Upper Austria by Two in a Box-Architekten

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

Article source: TWO IN A BOX – ARCHITEKTEN

Due to the steep sloping terrain, the view and the direction of the sun special attention was required with regard to the alignment of living rooms and sleeping rooms. The villa has three levels adapted to the line of sight and staggered towards each other on top of a basement garage. The main living floor is west-aligned and built at the slope opening up onto a garden and summer kitchen.  In order to offer a free view of the city from the west-faced garden, the plan view of this floor was pushed to the northern end of the lot giving space for an elongated pool on the south side in front of the living and dining area. Front-mounted pool glazing allows for the horizon to disappear and the swimmer gets a feeling of hovering above the city.
