In the landscape such as the Bay of Boka Kotorska, great challenge can be construction of building beyond a traditional “recipe”.

In that situation, we should to celebrate “the differences” between people and like that today, with all social, economic and technological development, we must thinking about structure which will reflect the present, but without endangering “spirit” of the existing natural and built environment – “genius loci”.

House Like Garden in Amsterdam, Netherlands by Marc Koehler Architects

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

Article source: Marc Koehler Architects

The 140m2 house is located on a small plot in IJburg; a recently developed suburb of the city of Amsterdam. The house is designed as a vertical garden giving space to flora and fauna to grow in a densely urbanized area. Closed private spaces contrast with open collective spaces, that seem to have been ‘carved out’ from the solid volume as a continuous transparent void. In this way the interior space is visually and physically connected to the street, the garden and roof terraces.

Residence Study in Mijares, Spain by Eduardo Fdez.-Abascal Teira + Florentina Muruzábal Sitges

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

Article source: Eduardo Fdez.-Abascal Teira + Florentina Muruzábal Sitges

The house and the workshop are located in a plot in a small housing estate in Mijares. It has good accessibility, a rural environment and far views of the mountains. The design solves a complex program, considering the determinations of the planning and the characteristics of the site: access from the good orientation; a sloped, trapezium shaped plot; orientations; sights; adjacent buildings; and the presence of a great tree, a salix fragilix.

Las Acacias in Huixquilucan, Mexico by GOO ARQUITECTOS

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Article source: GOO ARQUITECTOS

Las Acacias is a project located outside of Mexico City. The idea came from a place to enjoy a weekend break with family or friends where they could pursue other activities of recreation. With the idea that the use of the house would not have the same dynamic of a house in the city, we intent to take advantage of the outdoor space to the fullest, leaving the space covered as small as possible. Thus the relationship between interior and exterior space becomes a crucial issue.

Gros Ventre Residence in Jackson, Wyoming by Stephen Dynia Architects

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Article source: Stephen Dynia Architects

Nestled into a hillside, this low profile residence creates a contrast of spatial experiences. The house consists of two intersecting “bars”. The south and east side of the bars capture downhill views to the valley floor. On the northern uphill side, the house’s two wings form an intimate courtyard with a grove of aspen trees. At the entry, the geometry is skewed by an alignment with a prominent mountain peak view line to the east.
