Vivienda Teresa in Elche, Alicante by Rocamora Arquitectura

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

Article source: Rocamora  Arquitectura

The owners’ urban calling is behind site’s location. A quiet street in Elche’s San Jose area with almost no traffic.

The plot dimensions are 7m x 10.5m, in a street that measures 4m wide.

A tripartite collaboration: Maite (owner), Angel and Javier (project authors, one is also an owner). The first decision is to build “the sideways look”: the facade is drilled with the minimum space, necessary to meet the building legislation.

GREEN GREENBERG GREEN HOUSE by NEW THEME

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

Article source: NEW THEME 

The design for this two-story house emerged from the site constraints, program and view. The shape and orientation is designed for maximum exposure to the prevailing winds at strategic locations, which facilitate the building’s ability to use natural ventilation. The form of the building gently fits a large program onto the awkwardly-shaped site by using the site’s unusual form: shifts and movements of the site are used to enhance daylight and natural air flow distribution.

Santa Maria del Mar Basilica in Cancun, Mexico by sanzpont [arquitectura]

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

Article source: sanzpont [arquitectura]

Design Concept.

Santa Maria del Mar is one of the oldest virgin avocations. She isn’t related to any apparition; instead she relates with the need that marines and their families who stay on land feel for having the highest protection from heaven. Stella Maris, Star of the Sea is how they call her since ancient times.

Salto del Penitente in Lavalleja, Uruguay by gualano+gualano arquitectos

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

Article source: gualano+gualano arquitectos

The project does not try to impose or merge, and marks an abstract, honest, architectural form of finished materiality with the concrete made rock. It takes part in the landscape, respecting it, trying to be of importance to the site. The project is solved in two pieces that articulate in the landscape; the inn  that hangs of the rock and emerges towards the cliff and the other volume, with the public restrooms and picnic area, receiving to the arrivals of automobiles. The skin concrete structure generates the limits and hard edges of the work, generating the structure composition of the project.

Permanent exhibition at Palazzo Mosca in Pesaro, Italy by Migliore+Servetto Architects

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

Article source: Migliore+Servetto Architects

From a simple and innovative design idea comes the permanent exhibition system designed by Migliore+Servetto Architects for the Palazzo Mosca – Pesaro City Art Museum, to create fast, autonomous and flexible set ups.

“The narrative line”, this is the name given to this system, is composed of two metallic tracks – a common thread that connects the different exhibition areas following their perimeter – that contain the attachment system for the works of art, the display cases and the graphic supports, adaptable to the different exhibition materials.
