The arrangement of this house is born of the radical choice to place the required swimming pool in the very heart of it. The topic was set as such, with this pure white parallelepiped covered with scales on North face and glass on South face, the outside and in boundaries fantasized by architects are both mastered and still quite unclear.

Dante Alighieri High School Expansion in Bucharest, Romania by LTFB Studio

Friday, January 25th, 2013

Article source: LTFB Studio

This intervention must be related to the context: the communist architectural legacy from before 1989 in Romanian cities, the gray suburbs and neighborhoods with standardized blocks , the specific urban landscape of Europe’s former socialist bloc. Due to excessive standardization, many blocks of flats in Bucharest are identical with some of the apartment buildings in places located hundreds of miles away, indifferent to the socio-cultural specificity.

School of Music and Arts in Bucharest, Romania by LTFB Studio

Friday, January 25th, 2013

Article source: LTFB Studio

A FEW WORDS ABOUT THE SCHOOL

The idea of a school of music and arts in Bucharest came from the need to gather all the teachers and gifted children from the district and from other areas in a single dedicated place in order to study and communicate. Until now, children have studied in improvised places, in old schools that haven’t been built in accordance with the technical needs of these disciplines. The school is not a classical art one, but an institution with extra-curricular activities like music, theatre, dance, drawing, painting, graphics, sculpture, new media and performance of any kind.

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Article source: Archinauten / Dworschak+Mühlbachler Architekten

The residential family home is located on a hillside that slopes towards the east on the outskirts of the city of linz. The topography of the building site, building regulations, and the location of the plot were defining parameters for the design and conception of the house. The result is a clear structure, which appears monolithic from the outside, but has a complex interior spatial structure.

Private House in Menorca, Spain by Dom Arquitectura

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Article source: Dom Arquitectura

Being a summer house, the main idea is not only creating the interior spaces of the house, but distribute all outer space. The interior spaces seek good relations with the outside world, colonizing their surroundings and their views.

Residential Housing 26 units in Obhur, Saudi Arabia by Dom Arquitectura

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Article source: Dom Arquitectura

The aim is to project 26 houses in the Obhur area. The client wanted to use the same isolated unit type, but generate differences in the street facade to avoid the traditional house complex with all the same.

Recalling the Islamic markets, we remind the Arabic spices image, located in the same container but with different color shades. Natural tones that would fit perfectly into our idea.

Landscapes of Cohabitation in Antiparos, Greece by doxiadis+

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Article source: doxiadis+

How does one build on the stark beauty of a Cycladic landscape without destroying it? This project seeks an answer to that very question. Placing such a rich development programme on this highly sensitive site necessitates a careful examination of the natural and historic elements which characterise the landscape: the amphitheatrical circle of hills, the seasonal streams, the juniper trees and frigana vegetation, the pezoules (agricultural terraces) and the xerolithies (dry stone walls).
