Restoration of the house“El Bosquet” in La Garrotxa, Spain by Arcadi Pla i Masmiquel & Núria Pla i Illa

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

Article source: Arcadi Pla i Masmiquel & Núria Pla i Illa

The project consisted of the restoration of the house “El Bosquet”, which is inside the neighbourhood of “Can Gustí”, located in “La Vall de Riu”. The objective was to set the house up as a short-stage refugee. Thus, the restoration entailed the reinforcement of the stony walls, the change in the house layout turning it into a main space which encompassed the dining room and the living room, and the relocation of the services (kitchen and bathroom).

  • Location: Montagut, La Garrotxa, Spain
  • Software used: AUTOCAD 2012

The night area was in the lower level, in an enclosed space. Moreover, the facade composition was developed offering new windows as view frames which valued the astonishing landscape of the valley. At the same time, another layer was gained in the walls and the roof with a great deal of isolation and wood plaques, so that they improved the thermal conditions of the interior. On the whole, we were seeking a seclusion atmosphere in order to observe and enjoy this privileged spot.

Gretel House by Simon Gill Architects

Sunday, June 16th, 2013

Article source: Simon Gill Architects

Gretel (a wire-haired miniature dachshund) found her existing conservatory cold and poorly related to her garden.  This scheme therefore replaces the conservatory with a new extension that fully opens out to her grounds. Her requirement for the possibility of being fed tit-bits of grilled sausages led to the design including a barbeque, which becomes an extension of the side wall to the kitchen/ living area.

There is an adjacent seat where her owners can sit and pamper her in the sun. The main opening to the extension containing the sliding doors has an outside “raincoat” of brick with a smooth inner lining expressing  the cavity wall and creating a sense of interior comfort.  Bespoke cast stone forms a masonry course over the lintel which resolves the weight of the wall above and emphasizes the openings of the weep holes.  The floor is resin with underfloor heating, providing a comfortable lounging surface that pleasantly warms her tummy.

TWIN BLADE in Amsterdam by NIO architecten

Sunday, June 9th, 2013

Article source: NIO architecten

It’s a well-known adage that the knife cuts both ways. What this means is that each advantage has its disadvantage, that there’s a drawback to everything. This makes it an unanswerable platitude that results in a great deal of apathy. Better than a knife that cuts both ways is a knife with two blades, which share the same handle and where each blade has a single cutting edge. This is known as a twin blade. It allows you to cut two different things at a single stroke or to facilitate two dissimilar functions – or characters – at one and the same time. And that’s the idea behind the houseboat.

Remarkable renovation Dutch 1930’s house

Van Ommeren-Architects made the plans and supervised the renovation of a 1930’s house in Haarlem(NL). The design is completed with the placement of a unique extension. Hidden in a common designed 1930s residential district a remarkable extension is made. On the contours of the old extension a lightweight construction realized a healthier relationship with the garden. The volume is divided into segments with opposite slopes, which optically reduce the scale. Between the different slopes, triangular windows are placed. In this way the interior is lit from above is without compromising to intimacy.

Research and Design Center in Hebei Province, China by Latitude Studio

Friday, June 7th, 2013

Article source: Latitude Studio  

In large industry structures, the construction of the industrial building is based on logistic, distribution and volumetric requirements determined by the production. It is one of the few building types whose value is measured more in terms of equipment assets than how it performs as social infrastructure.
