102 House in Gliwice, Poland by ZALEWSKI ARCHITECTURE GROUP

Saturday, June 15th, 2013

Article source: ZALEWSKI ARCHITECTURE GROUP

Every house should have some secret. This house has more than one. The originality of this home has grown from dreams of its owners. The owners – a pair of 35-year-olds with a limited (but not modest) budget and a cloud of dreams. They are fans … she is keen on  architecture of glass and a person longing for the sun the south and the peace of the night … he is keen on World War II, raw concrete and metal. Opposites attract. They demanded not only a modern house but also a unique emotional experience – a house that would be “their home” – at first sight. It’s a challenge.

Centro de Surf de Somo in Cantabria, Spain by Javier Romero Soto. Architect

Friday, June 14th, 2013

Article source:  Javier Romero Soto. Architect

The Ribamontán al Mar Surf Center is located in the seafront of Somo, a small town in near Santander. It’s essential for this new facility to be located as close as possible to the beach (it would be unthinkable that surfers have to move to change, shower or store the surfboards to some urban area of the town); therefore, in the absence of municipal property plot with the required characteristics, we chose to place the building on the seafront. The venue lacks environmental value; one of the goals of the project is in fact to recover this underused space, situated just 20 meters away from the sealine.

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

Article source: Barker Freeman Design Office Architects pllc

This proposal for the Fresh Kills landscape in Staten Island, New York engages visitors and the environment into generating energy using piezoelectricity, which is the conversion of mechanical movement into electricity. Energy from wind, sound vibration, and human movement can collectively be harvested from the movement of natural piezoelectric materials embedded in walkable surfaces and bendable wind-capturing stalks and streamers.

Three architectural moves are key in turning this former hotel ballroom into an integrated set of spaces. A portion of the ground floor concrete slab is cut away, a bridge spanned across it, and a cafe ‘trailer’ inserted into the front facade. The front of the trailer pushes through to the street, defining the entrance and helping to project the identity of the gallery.

Article source: Eugenio Aglietti

Shanghai is one of the Chinese cities with the highest levels of CO2 emissions per capita and held the lead as the biggest carbon dioxide emitter between 2004 and 2007. Another problem that affects the city relates with the quality of water, which is severely contaminated: about 80% of the water comes from the Huangpu river, one of the most polluted rivers in the world.

TREVOX 223 in Hills of Naucalpan, Edo.Mexico by CRAFT Arquitectos

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

Architects: CRAFT Arquitectos

The project arises from the idea of reusing existing spaces of a house built more than 40 years and generate a housing with these spaces independently for each family member with the constraint of preserving the essence of the building, trying to have the least number of changes and trying to protect original details which in turn must be integrated into the new project.One of the most important factors involved in the design, is the location of the property, which is located in a gazebo with continuous traffic and is the visual culmination of several avenues, this generates: excessive noise, very little privacy and air stream impacts directly on the main facade of the house. Moreover the project is facing south, what makes summer overheat.

This led to our primary need to cover the environmental factor, is create a transitional space between the private area and public areas, without losing connection between these and at the same time will diminish environmental factors. This was achieved with a double façade design to that used bronze glass Reflecta the enormous advantages that this represents, it helps to have a vision outward and in turn limit inward spaces giving privacy to in addition to the use of square-shaped openings that are offsetting the direct effect of the wind, allowing the circulation of the same without directly affecting the internal facade, helps filter over the sun which gives us a comfortable temperature. The outstanding feature of this design is to isolate outside noise and not lose the connection to the same, thanks to this design was created intermediate terraces, binds both contexts and is accessible only from private terraces.

With respect to the inside, absorbed existing aspects of the program, however, according to the needs of the project was to create new areas on the existing line along the outer limit and give freedom to every part of space, the only significant change was the demolition of the hall, which resulted in two separate blocks that are linked by bridges, resulting favorably creating an indoor garden, which makes vestibular function and connect the locked rooms and turn generate more light and ventilation inside.

The interior reflects ambient rhythm and harmony, with the use of colors chiaroscuro lighting creates light games to low intensity contrast with the exterior lighting, the resulting project provides the opportunity to experience different ways and spaces where you are.
