Beast in Austin, USA by Specht Harpman

Friday, August 8th, 2014

Article source: Specht Harpman

This project involved the renovation and adaptive re-use of an existing single-story brick building in downtown Austin.  The structure, built in the 1920’s, housed a wide variety of tenancies through the years, from a mom-and pop grocery store to leasing offices for new downtown condominiums.  The current owner, a creative company involved with film production, was on an extremely limited budget, and wanted to re-use as much of what existed as possible while making something that was uniquely “Austin” in character.

Horse stable refurbishment in Předlice, Ústí nad Labem by 3+1 architekti

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

Article source: 3+1 architekti

The building of the former stables is part of the farming complex founded  around 1870. Size and location of the building is the key to the layout of the whole farm. Along with similarly large barn on the southern edge of the property it defines large yard area and establishes the complex scale, which is larger compared to the surrounding residential development.

SN HOUSE in Londrina, Brazil by Studio GT

Saturday, August 2nd, 2014

Article source: Studio GT

Perfect for the leisure time of a large family, this house in Londrina, Brazil seems like its floating in the air. That is due to the volumetry and the large spans without pillars designed by the architect Guilherme Torres.

From the unevenness of nearly 3 meters of the ground, it came the idea of a residence with a cantilever main floor to reserve more space for the leisure area on the lower level. “I’ve docked the house on the slope” says the architect Guilherme Torres, “By doing that, I’ve released the space underneath it to the garden, the pool and the living rooms”. The irregular relief was won by a monumental block of prestressed concrete containing cables of high strength steel driven and trapped inside the slab itself. This feature allowed the span of 17.5 meters long besides the 4.5 meters cantilever volume beyond the wall that mark boundaries of the leisure area.

Prism House in VALENCIA, SPAIN by Ramon Esteve

Friday, August 1st, 2014

Article source: Ramon Esteve

Settled in a residential area, the plot’s morphology obliged us to focus the building in a single floor same height design. Starting from cube from where it’s subtracted different pieces to shape the spaces from gaps or solids. The cube seems almost blind at its east-west orientation and totally opened to the northwest-south direction.
