Casa 7A in Villeta, Colombia by Arquitectura en Estudio + Natalia Heredia

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

Article source: Arquitectura en Estudio + Natalia Heredia

The challenge was to design a country house in the surroundings of the town of Villeta (Colombia), 1.5 hours to the west of Bogotá; at 967 meters above sea level, with a predominantly hot and dry weather all year round. The site’s constraints were very clear; a very steep land that starts at the top of a hill going all the way down to the stream “El Cojo”. The brief asked for a built area of 550m2, including 3 rooms, studio, service and social areas, a terrace and a swimming pool, all this under one essential demand: the house must be able to be completely closed whenever it’s not in use.

The House As A Metaphor by Michael Jantzen

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

Article source: Michael Jantzen

This series of sculptures by Michael Jantzen plays with the iconic house shape in a variety of abstracted contexts, juxtaposing the house with other recognizable symbols. Most of the pieces are monochrome, and use a single material for both the house and the additions to it, which range from stilts, wheels and railroad tracks to clouds and crosses. Minimal and conceptual, these sculptures are meant to interrogate the meaning of the house symbol by exploring how simple interventions affect its interpretation. These sculptures are presented as proposals for large public art installations.

Article source: JY-ARCHITECTS

“What do you expect from us?”

This was the very first question we asked a client at our first meeting. The client wanted to open a local low-end restaurant that would not normally require an architect’s touch.

“I want a restaurant that is extraordinary and unique—like a forest house in the city.”

His answer was very clear.
