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”.

The Gaillard Hall in Dahlonega, Georgia by Lord, Aeck & Sargent

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Article source: Lord, Aeck & Sargent

Back in the early 1950s, when noted Atlanta architect Richard L. Aeck stood with his 4-year-old son Tony on a reviewing stand overlooking North Georgia College’s revered drill field at the center of campus, he could not have known that the military barracks he was designing for a site opposite the stand would some 60 years later be restored and rehabilitated by the descendant architecture firm to his own Aeck Associates.

Gaillard Hall at North Georgia College & State University is a good example of international style architecture and was saved from demolition due to its historic significance as the campus’ best example of mid-20th century architecture and its unique proximity and relationship to the historic drill field. © 2012 Jonathan Hillyer

Résidence Bromont in Canada By Blouin Tardif Architecture-Environnement

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Article source: Blouin Tardif Architecture-Environnement

Situated on a hill in the undulating countryside of Bromont, this secondary residence sits, between forest and clearing, at the end of a road burnished by time. The challenge consisted of evoking the vernacular architecture of the Eastern Townships while affirming the project’s contemporary nature and integrating the building into the landscape with minimal impact. The project blends with its surroundings through the simple forms of the rectangular plan and the metal gable roof.

Inhabitable Sculpture in Montreal, Canada By Jean-Maxime Labrecque

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Article source: Jean-Maxime Labrecque

The “inhabitable sculpture” project, which received two awards at the Grands prix du design 2011, is the result of four years of work executed by numerous fabrication and installation teams. Two premises were established by the client at the beginning of the project: “a space that people will find cold” and “living in an art gallery.” All designers hope, sooner or later, to obtain such a commission, which enables them to avoid subjecting their work to the obvious sacrosanct “warmth” obtained through wood.

The owners of this land located in Shuwaikh, to the northeast Kuwait City , are a young couple and their three children, who have a close relationship with European and American culture.

Aware of the potential of a site located in a prime location overlooking the “skyline” of the city and concerned about the limitations of his former residence, decided to build another house that would improve their life quality, placing it on the same site as the old.
