Rehabilitation of a Traditional Housing in Moscoso, Spain by LIQE arquitectura

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

Article source:  LIQE arquitectura 

Usually a project involves creating something out of nothing; but sometimes, as in this case, it is about strengthening something that was already there.

A long stone building, with a powerful balcony facing the valley, to the north. An elevated shed leaning on a warped and also excessively long wood beam, with three facades made out of stone and one out of wood, to the south. The Cruceiro Grande, where three religious processions become one, is out on the street, to the east. And an impressive Hórreo supported in stone beams under which one enters the garden, to the west. And then, in the centre: the “eira“, the work yard, sheltered from the wind, the main focus of everything around it.

Renovation of protected houses in Bruges, Belgium by atelier tom vanhee

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

Article source: atelier tom vanhee

Two disused protected 17th-century houses on a brewery site in the centre of Bruges were rebuilt into a family home (with existing retail and storage space).

The different window types and added rear façade are witness of successive conversions over time. The design starts from the changes the building has undergone and adds a new layer. The historical and authentic parts are kept or reconstructed and, where necessary, structurally improved. These elements (doors, fireplaces, beams, stairs) go hand in hand with new elements, and remain legible.

House on Krokholmen in Värmdö, Sweden by Tham & Videgård

Tuesday, September 26th, 2017

Article source: Tham & Videgård

The site is a promontory on the relatively small island of Krokholmen in Stockholm’s outer archipelago: a typical archipelago landscape with windswept dwarf pines and soft mountain outcrops produced by the inland ice. The plot benefits from open views, in the east all the way out to the lighthouse Almagrundet in the open sea, and it is at times exposed to strong winds. The family wanted a maintenance-free vacation home in one level with social space both inside and outside.

HLM House in Sul, Brazil by Boa Arquitetura

Tuesday, September 26th, 2017

Article source: Boa Arquitetura

The HLM House emerges from a client’s request to build a retreat on a natural area in the outskirts of the city of Santa Maria, in the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The idea was to provide a place where one coul find himself in deep contact with the landscape, near enough from the city so working was still possible. From the begining, the challenge found was how to build something that could rise in the landscape as if it had always belonged to the place.
