To come back. Inhabiting the farm where he grew up. This action determines the intervention. The client inherited a stable and chose this spot to be his last home.

There is no decoration when we talk about designing for animals. Cows do not have aesthetic whims.

ENTRE MUROS HOUSE in Tumbaco, Ecuador by Al bordE architects

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

Article source: Al bordE architects

The wish to set up, the search for living in harmony with nature, the need of autonomy for each one of the three members of the family, the low budget (understood as the optimization of resources and spaces) and the phrase: “There is always another way of doing things and another way for living”, settled by her, were the starting point for the design.

Casa 3 in Acapulco, México by At103

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

Article source: At103

The Project consists on the restoration and enlargement of an existing house in the old part of the city of Acapulco, Mexico. In the 50’s and 60’s, Acapulco was a Hollywood Town, full of glamour and money, where all the rich and famous— from John Wayne to John F Kennedy and Maria Felix—would meet, where good taste and modern architecture blended with the beautiful landscape of the bay and the cliffs. This has changed over the last decades: the city grew old, and no new infrastructure emerged, except in the classic area, to preserve its former contemporary city atmosphere.

Conversion of st.Lukes Chapel in Bern, Switzerland by Morscher ArchItekten

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

Article source: Morscher ArchItekten

The project involved converting a former chapel built in 1924 in Art Deco style in a Bern neighbourhood and totally defaced in a 1970s renovation into two new apartments. In order to keep the ground floor free of supports and retain the high church windows, the upper apartment was hung as a concrete cube in the former double-storey  nave.

Modern house in Vilagarcía de Arousa, Spain by Nan arquitectos

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

Article source: Nan arquitectos 

“I would like a modern and cheap house for lease”

During the first meeting with the sponsor, the requirements for the house were clear, but a “modern house” is not the best way to start with the project definition. We were looking for a low- cost house that could satisfy the requirements from an ephemeral user. For that, we’ve chosen the simplicity of the design, distribution and construction.
