Mineral Lodge in Savoie, France by Atelier d’Architecture Christian Girard

Friday, February 15th, 2013

Article source: Atelier d’Architecture Christian Girard

Mountain ranges often appear to be sublime. Under a mantle of snow their enormity would seemto defy the possibility of architecture. Time does not pass. Eternity stands opposed to the fragility of human accomplishments. And yet contemporary architecture has a place in an ancient hamlet. A fact amply demonstrated by the recently constructed Mineral Lodge at an altitude of 1200 metresin Savoie.

Pedras Salgadas Eco-Resort in Portugal by RA Architectural & Design Studio

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

Article source: RA Architectural & Design Studio

The new Eco-resort of Parque de Pedras Salgadas, Portugal, consists of a set of seven small houses in perfect harmony with the surrounding outstanding nature.

Designed in a modular prefabrication system but flexible to adapt to the specific places within the park, these houses result in several different combinations of the same three modules (entrance/bathing – living – sleeping) creating different morphologies and different dialogues with the surrounding nature, wisely occupying the empty spaces between the trunksof large trees and, at the same time, allowing each home to be unique, special and worth visiting.

Folk Arts Camp in Nagykálló, Hungary by Ekler Architect

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

Article source: Ekler Architect

This new development is the extension of a summer camp built in the late 80s. The old buildings of the Folk Arts Camp were designed by Dezso Ekler and received wide publicity at the time. Now three new buildings are planned to build: a reception building, a building for different activities and a building accommodating sanitary facilities. The local council insisted on the new constructions also bearing the mark of the original buildings’ architect, and the designer interpreted this by enlarging his signature as buildings.
