House with one wall in Zurich, Switzerland by Christian Kerez Zürich AG

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

Article source: Christian Kerez Zürich AG 

A two-family house is a building with a wall that divides it into two halves. The dividing wall is the only wall in the entire house. It cannot be crossed anywhere. It has to fulfill functions conventionally assigned to several architectural elements. It is the load bearing structure and the installation core, its folds define all of the rooms and it determines how the view from the entirely glazed building is divided between the two living units. The simplicity of the concept, the reduction of the architecture to a single element, creates substantial dependence and, in turn, makes the building very complex. It is only through that dependence that the wall acquires a compelling and cogent character although, in itself, it can follow any chosen course.

Article source: Sboev3 Architect

Architectural Studio Sboev3 Architect shared with us the project cottage «Roman-house», which will be built on a plot of land near St. Petersburg. In this house will be to live a family of 4-eh man.
Compositional techniques and concept forms used in the design process are not something new and special, because They are widely distributed in the architecture of individual dwellings European masters. Therefore, the main objective in the design process was the creation of a kind of compromise in the context of the ordinary, traditional building of cottage settlement.

Prazeres House in Lisbon, Portugal by José Adrião Arquitectos

Saturday, April 25th, 2015

Article source: José Adrião Arquitectos

Located on a narrow street of Alcântara district, the existing building didn’t possess any particular quality. Apart from a rigorous and well balanced façade – which brings character to the surrounding urban fabric- all of its interior was in imminent collapse. The maximum volume allowed by local legislation was built within a plot of 7 meters wide by 22 meters long.

Silvina and Omar’s house in Buenos Aires, Argentina by IR arquitectura

Saturday, April 25th, 2015

Article source: IR arquitectura

Silvina and Omar’s house used to be one among the typical vernacular models in the metropolitan area of Buenos Aires. Silent as to its urban insertion, simple and compact in its layout on a single level, releasing a portion of the lot to the back, a flat roof directly related to the tops of the neighboring trees and dense vegetation at the back.

Camping Cala Llevadó is one of the most emblematic campsites in Costa Brava. It is situated next to the beaches between Tossa de Mar and Lloret de Mar. The campsite as a client requested us a proposal to put 33 units in a part of virgin forest situated at the tallest part of the camping. The campsite is located at the side of the natural park called “Massís de Cadiretes”. This natural park is formed by mountains of oak, cork and pine trees that are arriving to the sea.

CASA LLORELL EN LA COSTA BRAVA in Girona, Spain by DOSARQUITECTES

Friday, April 24th, 2015

Article source: DOSARQUITECTES

A house situated in the heart of the Costa Brava with incredible views to a coast bay.
Costa Brava is different of other coasts because of the big forest slopes next to the sea.
The challenge was to fit a big program in a volume with some formal contrast with the nature of the place. So we propose some cubes placed as if they were randomly thrown, like if they were fallen from the sky, but finally they really derive from the fan-shape of the plot.

Casa LPZ by Arquitectura en Movimiento Workshop

Friday, April 24th, 2015

Article source: Arquitectura en Movimiento Workshop

An elderly couple with a newborn grandchild commissioned us to design their new residence on a section between two recently built houses. Among their main requirements was that the house should have little or no visual contact with the neighboring properties and that daily life should happen on a single level. In addition to the usual requirements they asked for a guest bedroom and a gym on an upper level, which we resolved by means of gentle transition, that is, without long-spanning flights of stairs.
