The 2nd floor is divided by two load bearing walls that span between the perimeter walls to allow the open ground floor.

This house and studio for a painter, is situated on the edge of a low-density housing development, bordering a large extension of pinewood.

A Landmark building near Tarjish Square.
Isolation of floor units anticipate future seismic activity.  Staggered juxtaposition maximizes views, and creates various ‘green shelves’ for rain capture, irrigation, and shading during summer months.  These green shelves accommodate lush, climbing vines and vegetation for sound absorption and passive temperature control.  Cast glass discs are embedded at the ground floor and parking slabs for natural light and weight reduction.

Mini Rooftop in New York by HWKN

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

Article source: HWKN

A space for urban tastemakers without logos or branding. HWKN scouted the location, created the design and oversaw construction of the temporary event location for MINI’s ”Creative Use Of Space” campaign. The sheer surprise of encountering a hill on a roof in NYC is heightened by design elements derived from MINI cars that utilize object-in-field design, like deploying brake lights into a field of sheet metal instead of at a seam.

Music Park in Sevilla, Spain by Costa Fierros Arquitectos

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

Article source: Costa Fierros Arquitectos

The Park is located in an existing degraded area, lacking of facilities, and known historically as a land dividing the nearby quarters (Águilas and Los Prunos neighbourhoods) and isolating their inhabitants.

Before the construction of Underground Line 1 was undertaken, this area was used as the official premises for Seville’s (tour) horse carriage owners as well as later housing the constructions for the initial attempt to build the city’s underground in the 70’s. As the Line 1 was to pass through these neighbourhoods, the opportunity to revaluate the land surrounding the underground station there arouse, and the Underground project was the starting point for considering the area renovation and providing the station with a quality landscape.

Housing 137 in Barcelona, Spain by H Arquitectes

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Article source: H Arquitectes

The Urban Planning for ‘Plaça de l’Església’ in Granollers intends to regain the role of this square within the old part of town.

Our plot is the key factor for the consolidation of this centrality, due to it occupies the space that gives continuity to Barcelona Street and connects with ‘Plaça de la Porxada’.

The three facades of the building become a single skin that, thank to the continuous use of the stone even in the shutters, unifies the volume and consolidates the characteristic predominance of the massive-wall facades in the old quarter.

Sky Light Pavilion by Nimbu

Saturday, May 12th, 2012

Article source: Nimbu

The conception of an architecture pavilion that is universal, timeless and spaceless shouldn’t be connected with the idea of conceiving a meaningless construction. Instead, an architecture pavilion that intent to be contemporary should be a construction that pursuit the architecture itself. Finnish architect Juhani Pallasmaa says that the renewal of an art, whatever it may be, means rediscovering its deepest essence, and that architecture is a direct expression of the existence, of the human presence in the world.

The staircase becomes the main point of the layout of the house and leads to the upper floor, where the parlour and terrace/courtyard are.

At the same time an entrance of zenith light is created which lights up the interiors rooms of the housing.
