PULKABACKEN (the sled hill) in VÄRMDÖ, SWEDEN by Street Monkey Architects

Sunday, June 21st, 2015

Article source:Street Monkey Architects

Constructed with prefabricated steel and concrete modules this 200m2 home is built on asteeply sloping site in an island suburb of Stockholm. Because of the sloping site and the close proximity of the neighbors we chose to camouflage this rather large volume under a sledding ramp and a roof terrace, making it extremely discreet from the road.

Set on a steep hillside overlooking Lake Washington in Seattle, this project realizes the owners’ vision of living in tune with changing light and views. Simple lines, flexible living spaces, well-organized storage, and a rooftop garden all add up to a nest that is anything but “empty.”

THE ENERGY OF CERRO MISTICO (MYSTIC HILL) in Lavalleja, Uruguay by FDS Arquitectos

Friday, August 16th, 2013

Article source: FDS Arquitectos

A good friend calls us to design a small hotel, 4 or 6 rooms on the hills of Lavalleja, Uruguay. The area is very well known for its spiritual tourism, as it is a very energetic place.

Visit to the area

there is definitely something very special about the energy of the hill:  it is quite inaccessible, it is covered by low native  vegetation. There are formations belonging to the earliest inhabitants of the place and archeological remains difficult to date. The views from up there are breathtaking.  Our friend and his family are in love with the place, we feel incredibly motivated and challenged by the task.
