House M in Yamaguchi-pref, Japan by Keiko Maita Architect Office

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Article source: Keiko Maita Architect Office

House ‘M’ is located in a rural area surrounded by mountains in Yamaguchi-Prefecture, Japan. The clients, a couple who used to work long hours in the busy city, wanted a quiet house in the nature in relation to the rhythm of the sun.

This small house (100m2) was designed so that the clients would be able to wake up every morning and enjoy the soft light of the rising sun. The exterior walls of the house are made of a semi translucent tent material which allows the sun to penetrate softly inside the house.

Palace of Camarena, Central of the C.O.A.E (Official Association of Architects from Extremadura) in Caceres, Spain by Arquitectos Ayala

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Article source: Arquitectos Ayala

Historic Reference

The Palace of Marqués of Camarena stands on the grounds of a former fortress house, dating from the XV century. Only part of the tower at one side of the building remains standing.The main front of the palace still keeps its masonry relatively level. It still has the sound and noble air of the old times. The other front looked disordered and it did not seem to belong to the whole.In the inside the most interesting find was the central cloister, very well preserved, although in showed signs of having undergone but few changes.

Universitary College, Extremadura University, Badajoz 1980 in Spain by Arquitectos Ayala

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Article source: Arquitectos Ayala

I used to live in a college for so many years. There the students were distributed in sunny rooms or darkness rooms. Due to I never got the needed status and college prestige, I could never be moved to the sunny rooms. It seemed that students from these sunny rooms were happier and with better color as we used to have painful look.

Banco Popular Headquarters in Madrid, Spain by Arquitectos Ayala

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Article source: Arquitectos Ayala

We initially conceive the project as a whole extending from plot to plot in a way which users and visitors experience as natural and easily recognizable. Thus we suggested building a series office blocks which would form an interwoven whole. The other option, a single large building, was discarded to make room for a more versatile, flexible and domestic option. In this sense we prefer here to work around a formula rather than a form, taking as starting point a typological approach rather than an image.

Andalucia TVE Territorial Office in Sevilla, Isla de la Cartuja, Expo ‘92 by Arquitectos Ayala

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Article source: Arquitectos Ayala

This building has got two clearly distinct areas. The first area, a metallic structure, stands as a technologically useful container; it is enclosed by high quality pre-fabricated plate paneling and its floors and ceilings are totally technical. It lodges offices, control quarters, editorial offices, projection rooms, etc. i.e. the parts that share some requirements. The other area houses studios, workshops and warehouses. It was built with concrete walls covered by plain stone.

Tourist Apartments and Commercial Premises Valdelagrana in Cádiz, Spain by SV60 Arquitectos

Tuesday, May 28th, 2013

Article source: SV60 Arquitectos

The building is designed as a linear volume adapted to the urban rules of alignments and heights, and parallel to the coastline. The situation, in a second line and hidden after several 12-storey buildings, the situation allows different sea sights through the horizontal gaps between the “towers”. Due to excessive linearity (urban ordinance) and low height (3 floors) the building is proposed as a volumetric and abstract object that acquires his singularity by the vibration of the materials.

The settlement, integrated in the mountains of the Taro Valley, appears as a core within a natural basin surrounded by the Appenine mountains. The building wants and creates new sight relationship with the urban context of the mountain chief town.
