The project aims to develop a single house located in the centre of Parede, Cascais, in a site characterized as Historical Urban Space. The lot of the house as a particular elongated and thin configuration like the adjacent lot on the left side – South.

The nearby buildings are part of a summer houses morph-typological group that proliferated in the Portuguese coastline in the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. These houses were usually built as second houses or summer residences, presenting, in general, a garden that involves them throughout their perimeter. The exception is made in smaller lots of recent date where it was usual the implantation of terraced houses, as a way to potentiate the opposite top sideband.

Barnsbury House in London, England by MARK DZIEWULSKI ARCHITECT

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013


This mixed-use project is located fronting one of London’s attractive garden squares. Planning approval has been granted and construction will begin shortly. It contains three floors of residential units above commercial business space. The existing square, like many in London, has developed over the years with a large variety of different building types, scales and styles.  It is this variety that gives the square its character and charm. Each period has provided its own example of what was, at the time, considered contemporary architecture. This design is intended to provide a well mannered and proud example of what our era can contribute to the rich architectural heritage of the area.

BITTEN HOUSE by Arnau Estudi d’Arquitectura

Article source: Arnau Estudi d’Arquitectura

On a river bank, at the bottom of a valley, open to distant cliffs, this simple house shows us closed as a box to keeping small treasures: the first morning sun, the church tower view at the other side of the river, the precipitous cliffs, the maze of trunks of riparian forest… All possessions jealously guarded by the house without knowing that, in fact, is she who belongs to them.

Vivienda Teresa in Elche, Alicante by Rocamora Arquitectura

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

Article source: Rocamora  Arquitectura

The owners’ urban calling is behind site’s location. A quiet street in Elche’s San Jose area with almost no traffic.

The plot dimensions are 7m x 10.5m, in a street that measures 4m wide.

A tripartite collaboration: Maite (owner), Angel and Javier (project authors, one is also an owner). The first decision is to build “the sideways look”: the facade is drilled with the minimum space, necessary to meet the building legislation.

The design for this two-story house emerged from the site constraints, program and view. The shape and orientation is designed for maximum exposure to the prevailing winds at strategic locations, which facilitate the building’s ability to use natural ventilation. The form of the building gently fits a large program onto the awkwardly-shaped site by using the site’s unusual form: shifts and movements of the site are used to enhance daylight and natural air flow distribution.
