Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

Article source: Marcos Miguélez Architect

The project is located in Ponferrada´s City Hall Square, next to the base of the Clock Tower, in one of the 5 gateways to the walled medieval city. This stretch of the wall remains intact due to its shared joint ownership with the cloistered convent of the Conceptionist, which has allowed its preservation until today.

The building corresponds to the traditional construction of XVIII Century houses in El Bierzo: rectangular, formed by volumes attached, with facade shield, courtyard, stratifying its uses by heights. The upper floor is devoted to housing, with a noble area in the square and another craft workshop in the courtyard. The ground floor housed commercial activities.

Article source: Fran Silvestre Arquitectos 

Twenty-one plateaus and seven volumes tell the story of this house.

The aim of the project is to give a new and even identity to a house belonging to the same family for several generations. The original house formed by the aggregation of different interventions at different times, with different construction systems. Each of the rooms in the house describes a moment in life of this family story. Thus it was essential to maintain the structure, spaces, uses, garden and memories, presenting them in a new way.

Utive Refuge in Panama by JiA-Jose Isturain Architecture

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

Article source: JiA-Jose Isturain Architecture

The project sits on the hills of Utive in eastern Panama.

The basic dwelling was designed for a young couple in need of a retreat from the crowded city of Panama. We focused our efforts on creating ways of taking the most advantage of the site’s scenic potential and natural conditions. Such explorations defined the building envelope and the main section of the roof, where natural conditions impose their presence. The three sections of the façade describe the three basic functions that occur inside—living, eating and sleeping, with this last section been slightly twisted on the horizontal plane, so private functions can be isolated from the public areas. The distortion of a pure volume also suggests certain circumstances such as the direction of the contour lines and the presence of some trees.

4 in 1 House in Murcia, Spain by Clavel Arquitectos

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

Article source: Clavel Arquitectos

The 4-in-1 house is located in a quiet residential area, at the top of a leafy hill in the outskirts of the city. From an architectural point of view, it is possible to distinguish the four ways of living, after which the house is named, since they are spatially and constructively qualified:

1. The leisure experience. The basement, lighted by patios and skylights, is the scene for game and amusement. Fun starts in the car park, where see the swimming pool can be seen from a “rear window”. The pavement, made out of stained stamped concrete, solves the contact between the house and the ground. This level, in the form of a zigzagging fissure across the plot, houses the vehicle access and the car park.
