Three Courtyards House in Benavente, Portugal by Miguel Marcelino Arquitecto

Saturday, December 1st, 2012

Article source: Miguel Marcelino Arquitecto

The plot  is located in the middle of a “montado” landscape, being the best views to the north with a lake and the skyline punctuated by cork oak trees. The house is organized in a compact volume of two floors, complemented by three courtyards all different in size and features. A first large courtyard, enclosed, intimate, situates on the south side, embracing a big existing cork oak. Next to the back entrance there is another smaller patio, for service. The third courtyard works as a key element in the relationship between home and the north side – it’s a slim space with a large horizontal opening that frames the landscape – it has an atmosphere of a “inner space outdoors”, the light is soft, by reflection on the outer wall that receives direct sunlight. This vertical courtyard communicates with a staircase that leads to an open terrace, the last element of the sequence of spaces, patios and atmospheres that go from more introspective and private to more open and outside.

Article source: Lmarchitects

The shell that houses the restaurant- Karaiskaki Stadium, which is built over the water, was a benchmark in the design proposal.
The wave of the sea that existed in place is introduced in the design of the space in the form of an optically moving roof element. This element, which is the result of parametric design, dominates the environment and gives identity to the restaurant.

Salmtal Secondary School Canteen in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany by SpreierTrenner Architekten

Saturday, December 1st, 2012

Article source: SpreierTrenner Architekten

The new school canteen of the Salmtal Secondary School in Germany was designed by SpreierTrenner Architekten (www.spreiertrenner.de) as a multifunctional building with the greatest possible flexibility. The space is used not only by children to eat every day, but also for special events such as music concerts, theatre plays or even Christmas fairs. This is why the main room was set out with a column-free square plan only subdivided by a mobile wall. The adjoining section at the rear contains all supporting facilities, such as a kitchen, storage space, toilets and staff facilities, etc. It has been set out with the option of extending it in the future.

Article source: Studio Chris Kabel

Façade for a residential building by Abbink X de Haas architects and housing cooperation de Key in the center of Amsterdam. Aluminum sheets are perforated with a pattern that allows the shapes to be bent up or down. When bent up the surface catches the (sun)light and bent down the surface is shaded. In this way intricate graphics can be applied onto the building with punch perforated panels without the use of expensive laser cutting. Bent turns shadow into ink.

Under The Roof in Biscay, Spain by Foraster Arquitectos

Friday, November 30th, 2012

Article source: Foraster Arquitectos

The urbanistic legislation in Mungia, a town near Bilbao (Spain), forces the use in new constructions of a gable roof with tile, in order to keep an identifiable architectural style in the area. It is certainly good to seek architectural uniformity –experience has shown that without doing so it can lead to aesthetic crimes. But it does not preclude seeking original solutions to update existing typologies.

Serengeti House in Johannesburg, South Africa by Nico van der Meulen Architects

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Article source: Nico van der Meulen Architects

This is a Johannesburg home, located on a suburban golf estate, in Africa. The home’s visual success is due to its perfectly balanced application of earthy textures against high-gloss finishes, and raw material against refined elements.

“The brief”, says Rudolph van der Meulen of Nico van der Meulen Architects, “was to create a stylish family home with ecologically sound design that maximized indoor-outdoor living to take full advantage of Johannesburg’s legendary eight-month summer”.
