The assignment is a single unit house in a residential park in northern Santiago. The sites, around 5000 m2 each and mostly surrounded by golf fields and green areas, have the constant presence of the Andes, high temperatures during summer time and winds from the south.

Tumbaco Cabins by Diez + Muller Arquitectos

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

Article source: Diez + Muller Arquitectos

The opportunity of re-conceptualizing the idea of what the cabin ¨typology¨, is what made this commission very interesting. In a 4 hectares property and an orchard of trees, we had this opportunity.
The clients required two cabins to complement their weekend home, and thus enabling to share their property with their extended family. Simplicity both in the typology as well as the program allowed us to give a more conceptual and less functional approach to develop our ideas.

A site facing the trapezoid that the green of the elementary school spread through on the front-shaped slope.

Sloping House in Paris, France by Atelier 37.2

Monday, December 17th, 2012

Article source: Atelier 37.2

Sloping House is a makeshift shelter that clings to the side of an extinct volcano in the Puy de Serveix, in France’s Massif Central. Built from recycled timber by the artists themselves, this sculptural one-person refuge, seems to erupt from the grassy slope, as if the structure’s wooden planks are being flung out of the earth only to reform into the neat lines of an archetypal hut.

  • Project: Sloping House
  • Location: Paris, France
  • Software used: The only software program the architects (barely) used to design Sloping house is sketch up.It was hand-built by 4 people in 48 hours, with no other equipment than 2 skewers and a circular saw. The material, rough wood, was entirely recycled from another installation.

27 VPO in Santa Cruz De Tenerife, Spain by Equipo Olivares Architects

Monday, December 17th, 2012

Article source: Equipo Olivares Architects

The presence of greenhouses in the plot inspired textures, lighting and finishes of this group of public housing.

The law, moreover, established the fragmentation of volumes in pieces no larger than 25 meters. We try therefore that the resulting courtyards were arranged staggered, and thus control the drafs from the streets, while reducing the courtyards dimension, offering more diversity of spaces and of more a private character.
