Tarifa House in Province Cadiz, Spain by James & Mau

Tuesday, July 5th, 2016

Article source: James & Mau

The terrain is located on a slope looking at the valley that dominates the Strait of the Gibraltar. The climate is Mediterranean with hot summers and soft winters, both humid, and very much influenced by the strong winds of Tarifa. The vernacular architecture of Andalusian “pueblos blancos”* with its patios and narrow streets reflects how the local building style adapts to the climate. Finally, the client expected us to propose to him not just a mere residential house but a complex area that would permit the development of several indoor and outdoor activities.As a result we proposed to condensate a “pueblo” on 300 m2 and turn it into a contemporary “cortijo”.  The rules that determine the design are the same as the ones behind its inspiring prototypes.

Perched above the beach at the edge of the tree line, this vacation home allows the dramatic Oregon Coast to take center stage. The design maintains sightlines from the sheltered forest to the open coastline with a minimal structure of glass and steel. Atop the two-story, transparent box, the copper-clad green roof is an elevated slab of native ferns and grasses.

Saturday, July 2nd, 2016

Article source: AMBAU taller d’arquitectes

This peculiar and personal “loft” is located near Malvarrosa Beach, in the distinctive neighborhood of “El Cabañal” at Valencia City. The Origin house responded to the top floor of a very common type of town house between party walls. It’s accessed from the Street through a narrow staircase. The depth of plot required the existence of intermediate rooms that were illuminated and ventilated by a small courtyard; on the other hand, the kitchen and the “toilet” occupied the rear façade as attached parts, and connected through an ancient terrace that had been closed; Finally, throughout the house roof was a ceiling of plaster that hid the actual volume of the steep cover Gable.

Polycarbonate Cabin in Guanaqueros, Chile by Alejandro Soffia / Architect

Friday, July 1st, 2016

Article source: Alejandro Soffia / Architect

In 1953 Le Corbusier wrote a letter to the Chilean Architects, and was sent through Emilio Duhart, a very important Chilean Architect that was drawing for him the buildings that he was doing in that moment in India. In this letter he emphasize the need on taking care of people while developing a design process. He said that “in that moment academic ideas where left behind, and the smallest measurements, the shorter distances or the smallest built spaces, become precious as a glass of water in the desert”.

I’ve been wanting to design this house for a long time. The obvious design, with a series of rooms arranged along a line. My client wanted to be sure that it was possible to construct a good house on the site before he went ahead and bought it. This meant that time was critical one autumn day in 2003.

The main idea for this house was to create a concavity to get a controlled view inside the lot.
