Alvega Canoeing Center in Abrantes, Portugal by ateliermob – Arquitectura

Friday, March 13th, 2015

Article source: ateliermob – Arquitectura 

With the same area and volume of the previous building, the new Canoeing Center is also located at the river beach of Alvega. Its proximity to the Tagus river, in a regularly flooded area during the winter, determined its position, raised above ground level – increasing the ground permeability –, and the coating of its walls, with a solution of black recycled plastic profiles, able to resist the impact of objects that might be dragged by the river, being permeable to the water flow simultaneously.

Article source: Låda Cube

\”In 2013 Låda Cube set out to change how we use and think about our walls.

Fueled by our belief that traditional stick-built walls consume needless time, energy, and resources, we set out to develop a better technology. We couldn’t be more excited about the results!

We created a wall that is infinitely flexible and allows for rapid modifications of spaces, a wall that is transportable, a wall that is cheaper, and most importantly, a wall that is beautiful.

The Modernist Cabin by Henrique Barros-Gomes

Saturday, February 7th, 2015

Article source: Henrique Barros-Gomes

The project was designed for an architectural competition, promoted by “Free Green”.

The challenge was to develop a small vacation home for a couple with two grown children, a kind of a modernist retreat. The aim was to build an economic, ecological, modern but without formal excesses house, which would integrate smoothly into the landscape of a forest in a lake front. It should suggest what may be termed \”affordable luxury\”.
