House Workshop in Prihueico Lake, Chile by Schmidt Architects Associates

Friday, January 17th, 2014

Article source: Schmidt Architects Associates 

The brief from this young couple was to design both living accommodation and studio space for sculpture & painting. Located in a millenary old forest of towering trees, on the shores of Lake Pirihueico in the south of Chile.

The proposal was to make a brightly lit and welcoming refuge, which inhabits the rough nature of its environment, enjoying this from within a core which maintains its distance, but at the same time both integrates with and emphasizes its surroundings. Formally it assimilates the vernacular architecture of the south, with large (overhanging??) roofs and simple rounded geometric volumes roughened?? through the ageing of the timber. The building form is not willful given the wet summers and extremely snow filled winters experienced by this remote lake set amongst the foothills of the Andes, but at the same time it contributes to the fantastic existing nature of the place.

Seaside House in Baltic Sea Coast, Poland by Ultra Architects

Friday, January 17th, 2014

Article source: Ultra Architects

The very first task was to choose a structural material which would work in heavy natural conditions on a plot where the building had to stand. For the sake of instability of the ground and high level of ground water, the shell of a building must be heavy and waterproof. It also must be firm and solid since we designed large windows to open the interior for a beautiful view of a seaside landscape.

In order to resolve the implantation of the building on the site, we started setting the sports track with the right orientation.The track is placed on the level + 41,90 m, optimizing the topography modification works. The north side of the lot is located on the level + 41,50 m, where we find the entrance to the administration, the nursery and primary areas.Thus, we try to not create large differencesfrom one level to the next, thinking in the shortage of the users.

New High Tech Campus in Villach, Austria by Bramberger Architects

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

Article source: Bramberger Architects

The winning scheme by Bramberger [Architects] proposes four blocks of buildings and a corresponding area of dedicated open spaces, articulated longitudinally by a main axle. This axle, named “Communications Promenade” acts as a central route between the buildings and, in the future, it is proposed to connect the surrounding buildings, promoting the necessary infrastructures for the creation of an investigation campus. The chess-like distribution of the buildings allows a multiplicity of visual relations between interior and exterior spaces.
