The House In The Grove in Veneux-les-Sablons, France by ARBA

Thursday, December 22nd, 2016

Article source: ARBA

A private house built in a grove near Fontainebleau. The building is compact and its higher floor levels are incorporated into a wooden roof.

When we first visited the garden in which this house was to be built, we came to the conclusion that the challenge would be one of scale. A high or extended building would have blocked and ruined the full view of this charming orchard. And we had to find the right balance between our intervention (the building’s height and ground impact) and the site proper.

Brick House in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Ventura Virzi Arquitectos

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

Article source: Ventura Virzi Arquitectos

Kenneth Frampton considers Tectonics not only as a “mere disclosure of the construction technique, but, rather, its expressive potential. Tectonics acquires a truly artistic character to the extent that it amounts to a poetics of construction… The inevitable ground nature of a building has a character so tectonic and tactile as scenic and visual, although none of these attributes denies its spatiality.

3 Houses 3 Sisters in Coimbra, Portugal by BICA Arquitectos

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

Article source: BICA Arquitectos

In a small village near the city of Coimbra, 3 sisters inherit and share a land. They wanted to build a house that would join them for the second time in their lives, because the family houses they own are nowadays too large.

Located at the village’s entrance, this field is composed by two streets, a square and a small house. The implementation of the 3 houses elects as the main facade the south elevation, that adjoins the street and turns too the square at east.
