Nettleton 198 in Cape Town, South Africa by SAOTA

Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

Article source: SAOTA

The clients, a British couple living in Cape Town, requested a six-bedroom, seven-level home that makes the most of the site, the views and the mountain. The lower levels of the existing structure were totally remodelled while the upper level was demolished to allow for two new levels.

“Inspiration was drawn from the mountain and dark colours were used on the facade, allowing the building to visually recede into the mountain instead of being an obtrusive construction,” says Greg Truen, Project Partner. The site enjoys spectacular views, both of the sea and Lions Head and these views and the impact of the sun were key informants contributing to the overall design.

In the southern part of Mexico City, on an irregular plot of land which offers just a few meters of front façade, this one-family residence solves the lack of contact with its environment by producing its own context, unfolding itself around a self-created landscape.

Article source: Paul Bernier Architecte

Located near Bromont, Québec (Canada) and surrounded by woods, this house is set in a natural clearing atop a rocky outcrop. The site offers beautiful views of the forest. In winter, when the leaves have fallen, the Appalachian Mountains are visible in the distance. This project, a weekend getaway for a couple living in Montreal, set out to provide a serene, light-filled and timeless space that would be sensitive to its natural setting.

Crusch Alba in Barcelona, Spain by Gus Wüstemann Architects

Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

Article source: Gus Wüstemann Architects

The project is our flat in Barcelona in the Gotico area, in the center of the historic part of Barcelona. A challenge was the very heterogenic floor plan, which was interrupted by various light patios. The other issue is little daylight in the old town of Barcelona, as the sun and the heat were considered rather a burden in the old times.

There is one major façade facing the street Banys Nous, with big windows and balconies.
