Cube House in Chihuahua, Mexico by Arquitectura en Movimiento Workshop

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

Article source: Arquitectura en Movimiento Workshop

The concept of a courtyard as an element of spatial and emotional transition, is the premise of conceptual design, again taking four natural elements, water, fire, air and land. Architectural compositions start with these open spaces and harmonically merge the volumes of the project, organized, scaled and related to each other, in accordance with the architectural program. The visual connection between the exterior and interior generates a censorial ”ludica” in each space and the visual endings are enveloped in the fusion of games of light and shadow, making the horizontal and vertical circulations turn into an emotional transition in the house.

Residential building Ville Verdi in Vienna, Austria by Albert Wimmer ZT GmbH

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

Article source: Albert Wimmer ZT GmbH

The ecological housing estate in low-energy construction is located in Vienna’s 11th district in a former industrial zone in close proximity to the revitalized, distinctive Gasometers — the industrial monuments of historic-ism. The town villas seek optimal positions in a dancing manner — with regard to exposure to sunlight and quality of view as well as the creation of tension, appeal and attractive force. The slightly “sloping” position, in which the villas ambivalently float between “seeing and being seen”, corresponds to the stepped house type, enhances the villas’ presence and facilitates the occupants’ identification process.

2+ Weekend House in Trebnje, Slovenia by Arhitektura Jure Kotnik

Saturday, February 9th, 2013

Article source: Arhitektura Jure Kotnik

Sky high prices of real estate in the contemporary world have stimulated the search for and development of alternative housing solutions. One such attempt is the ConHouse system of small-size housing container units, which takes the housing/office ISO container to the next evolutionary level.  As opposed to the other container projects, which mostly feed on the excess of available cargo containers, ConHouse pushes the development of containers manufactured especially for housing and office purposes.

Galeria Adriana Varejão in Minas Gerais, Brazil by Tacoa Arquitetos

Article source: Tacoa Arquitetos

Inhotim Centro de Arte Contemporânea is located in Brumadinho, a village near Belo Horizonte, the capital of Minas Gerais state. A personal initiative of the mining industry businessman Bernardo Paz, the museum has an unusual architectural concept. Instead of sum up all its installations into a unique building, it is composed of many pavilions spread out in a park of approximately 35 hectares.

Irène PAR in Montreal, Canada by Kanva Architecture

Saturday, February 9th, 2013

Article source: Kanva Architecture

The urban housing project, Irène, located in Montreal’s borough, St-Henri, exemplifies innovation as a valuable design tool to individualize a building within the City. Perforated aluminium panels were customized into a novel exterior building envelope that screens the upper three storeys of an addition above an existing industrial building. Drawing an analogy with a theatrical curtain, the metallic skin acts equally to veil and to reveal the activity within, serving a per-formative function that adds a touch of spectacle to the neighbourhood.

House Extension in Nantes, France by Avignon-Clouet Architectes

Saturday, February 9th, 2013

Article source: Avignon-Clouet Architectes

A long wooded corridor lined with services (laundry, bathroom, dressing, toilets) leads to panoramic bedrooms overhanging the garden, via two hidden stairs. Between these two volumes is inserted a room opened outwards. To create the interface with the current house, the new volume is completely glazed. It  gives the impression of a levitating architecture that wouldn’t dare resting on the ground of this limited landscape area.
