Taller Arranz Bravo in Barcelona, ​​Spain by Garcés De Seta Bonet, Arquitectes

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

Article source: Garcés De Seta Bonet, Arquitectes

The new building is designed for a sole activity: creation, an introspective and solitary experience, just as the painter told us. This led us to handle the volume compactly, with a uniform exterior design –layers of insulation and clear stucco in an expressive continuance of walls and cover– to establish a feeling of familiarity with the natural surroundings in an unobtrusive manner. The interior is a fluid and multiple concrete cavity – a direct result of the monolithic structural construction concept and the search for harsh and naked spaces that serve the artistic work that takes place inside.

Busan Opera House in South Korea by moh architects

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

Article source: moh architects

The new ‘Busan Metropolitan Opera’ sits at the intersection point of the two bridges leading up to the competition site, tying the Opera into the city fabric while at the same time interweaving it with the picturesque waterfront promenade. The ensemble of opera and multifunctional theater further divides the site into a series of differentiated territories, each of which fully draws on the potential of a site suspended between city and sea:

Vodniy Residential Street Block in Moscow, Russia by SPEECH architectural

Friday, August 26th, 2016

Article source: SPEECH architectural

This residential complex consists of five 26-storey buildings arranged in a checkerboard pattern on top of a multi-storey underground car park. This configuration of volumes of identical shape and height has made it possible to create a system of semi-enclosed inner courtyards between the blocks. The main entrances to the buildings face the courtyards and take the form of stately portals.

Haus Dolomitenblick in Sexten, Italy by Plasma Studio

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016

Article source: Plasma Studio

The building is located on a hillside in the Dolomites, at the end of a residential area.

The volume has been developed mainly from its pragmatic functional request to host 6 independent apartments with one common circulation: through a cut that marks the main access and the division of the units the volume is splitted into 2 halves. Besides its functional meaning this incision becomes the main defining element of the building: from the cut at either side a strip unfolds that forms the balustrade of a generous covered balcony and ends into the surrounding topography. Following the steep natural hillside with each floor the strips and the façade jump back.
