Jornalista Mário Filho Stadium in Maracanã, Brazil by Fernandes Arquitetos Associados

Friday, November 15th, 2013

Article source: Fernandes Arquitetos Associados

The choice for Brazil as host country of World Cup 2014, and the automatic assurance that Maracanã Stadium would be the stage” of the final match (even before the official definition), were the departing points of the need for preparing a project that modernized and preserved the renowned stadium. The differential was the proposal of making the arena as modern and efficient as the best ones in the world, associated to a brand built during more than 60 years of history and symbolism.

A group of middle-class houses, mainly built in the first half of the 20th century, are located above the Herz-Jesu church at the foot of the prominent Pfänder mountainside in Bregenz. The size of the house blends in with the other sporadic, villa-like houses, and the compact, square exposed concrete structure has identical facades on all sides, except for the west side of the house facing the lake.

House Dukken by Werner van der Meulen

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

Article source: Werner van der Meulen

The clients brief was for a spacious home that expressed its appreciation for outdoor living. An open plan and practical house that lived out onto the garden was of utmost importance to them. Consequently the design developed into a layout that encouraged such a lifestyle. With views to the garden from almost every room, and large living areas that seamlessly flowed out onto the covered patio, this home merges the thresholds between inside and outside.

Star House in Bnaider, Kuwait by AGi architects

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

Article source: AGi architects 

Nestled into the landscape, this beach house blends with the natural topography of the coastline of Kuwait. It slowly unfolds itself to the visitor, as it is approached from the desert.

Upon entry, one gets glimpses of the sea whilst going down to the public space of the chalet. On this lower level, the house extends into the landscape and the sea, accentuated by an infinity pool in the garden. The private side of the house, located at the entry level, is concealed from the visitors by a bamboo wall. Bedrooms and private living spaces remain isolated from daily activities. A three-way stair, placed at the center of building, organizes the different flows of family, friends and guests.
