Spectrum Residential Ensemble in Constanta, Romania by Re-Act Now

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

Article source: Re-Act Now

In an absolutely amazing geographical setting, in a «spur» of the gulf referred to as the «Fishery», somewhere at Constanta’s northern limits towards Mamaia, where the strip of land between the sea and Ghiol lake is minimal, is located the «Spectrum» Residential Complex, proposed by us. In this land «spur», the placement of «sea guards» appeared as an absolutely extraordinary theme. Observing the place from the land and from the sea, I realized that the situations are somehow different.

The previous house offered tiny opening to the garden. The “back” rooms, kitchen, bathroom, previously considered as services, blocked the views from the house to the nice garden. We decided to keep these functions but to open them widely, by creating large windows. The kitchen – dining room offers an large open view to the vegetation. The bathroom has focused view to the trees.

Offset House in Sao Paulo, Brazil by Shieh Arquitetos Associados

Saturday, February 23rd, 2013

Article source: Shieh Arquitetos Associados

The house is a direct result of the site’s complicated geometry. In plan, perimetral lines are given by the highest possible occupation of the property, discounting setbacks (restrained either by municipal legislation, or by the neighborhood regulation). Thus the nickname Offset House: a house that is the reflection of the sides of the lot.
