Villa Carlotta hotel in Sicily, Italy by Architrend Architecture

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Article source: Architrend Architecture

The architectural project articulates the space in response to various demands: relating with the urban context, dialoguing with the various bodies of the building, acting as a filter between indoors and outdoors, responding to the need for living comfort, etc. The direction of the space relates man with the building with the aim of generating places that improve the quality of life. A banal assumption for all designers, but it is precisely for its complex simplicity that there are few examples in which this theoretic base has become an excellent project, without falling into the banal or the paternalist.

Hotel Liesma in Jurmala, Latvia by BNKR Arquitectura

Saturday, January 7th, 2012

Article source: BNKR Arquitectura

A hotel that aims to reproduce in material form the ephemeral process of the diffusion of sound.  This is a process of vibrant outward expression and subsequent decay.  It is a narrative of the loss of integrity and dematerialization in space.

PLUS in Shizuoka, Japan by Mount Fuji Architects Studio

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

Article source: Masahiro Harada + MAO / MOUNT FUJI ARCHITECTS STUDIO

The site locates on mountainside of Izu-san, where Pacific Ocean can be looked down on the south. The untouched wilderness, covered with deciduous broad-leaved trees such as cherry trees and Japanese oaks, gives little level ground. But we saw faint glimmer of architectural possibility along the ridge. The architecture would be used as villa for weekends.

Article source: Aranguren & Gallegos Arquitectos SL


The building of The New Parador is the result of a long team process originating from the initiative of Paradores de Turismo to organize a contest that convened a selected group of Spanish architectural offices.

Paradores de Turismo searches for an emblematic architectural solution in a difficult and delicate location such as The Old Complex of El Colegio de Santo Tomás. Dating from the 16th century, the Complex was in use (lastly as a female penitentiary) until very recently, when it was destroyed by fire and abandoned.
