Diffuse borders: r.i. House in Quito, Ecuador by arquitectura x

Thursday, May 17th, 2018

Article source: arquitectura x

A project that started with uncertainties instead of the usual requirements for permanent living spaces, demanded we shifted the way we approached architecture.

The project as it is now, is a house; it became a house in the process, with its actual configuration decided during construction, its final purpose and use still undecided, its duration as a house uncertain.

Wednesday, May 16th, 2018

Article source: Specht Architects

This ridgetop house in Santa Fe is organized around two perpendicular board-formed concrete walls. The walls are an element of continuity, linking interior and exterior spaces and the landscape beyond. A narrow skylight runs the entire 125’ length of one of the walls, casting changing shadows on the rough concrete over the span of the day.
