Crusch Alba in Barcelona, Spain by Gus Wüstemann Architects

Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

Article source: Gus Wüstemann Architects

The project is our flat in Barcelona in the Gotico area, in the center of the historic part of Barcelona. A challenge was the very heterogenic floor plan, which was interrupted by various light patios. The other issue is little daylight in the old town of Barcelona, as the sun and the heat were considered rather a burden in the old times.

There is one major façade facing the street Banys Nous, with big windows and balconies.

Sugar Hill House in Fire Island, New York by David Gauld Architect PLLC

Saturday, August 4th, 2012

Article source: David Gauld Architect PLLC

Perched on a hill at the shore of the Atlantic Ocean, this beach house’s cubic composition is shifted, resulting in spatial variety. Centrally located on the second floor, there is a cantilever that floats above the lap pool. The pool mimics the shape of the house with the cantilever echoed in the pool steps. This creates a relationship between the pool and house as solid and void. The cantilever/steps mark the central axis of the house.

Can Manuel d’en Corda in Formentera Island, Spain by Daniel Redolat + Marià Castelló

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

Article source: Marià Castelló arquitecte

Can Manuel d’en Corda is located on a plot of 19,060 m2 of rustic nature in the area of the Vénda des Cap de Barbaria, in the west of the island of Formentera.

The most significant pre-existing conditions, which have been maintained and enhanced through the project, are a small forest of pines and junipers located in the west area of the estate and the old house Can Manuel de’n Corda, which reflects the scheme type of the domestic vernacular architecture developed in Formentera between the late eighteenth and mid nineteenth century. The volume of the main body with simple pitched roof gable and southeast orientation, and its roots in the landscape through the tradicional dry stone walls, highlight the link between this type of building with the farms next to which they were located.

Casa Ceschi in Vicenza, Italy by Traverso-Vighy

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

Article source: Traverso-Vighy


The Ceschi House leans against the 12th century walls of the city of Vicenza. The architects have “listened” to the existing building carefully: restoring the original walls using traditional techniques, while developing the interior as an independent project which allowed the redistribution of the inner spaces in a functional manner.

Ants’ House in Madrid, Spain by Espegel-fisac Arquitectos

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

Article source: Espegel-fisac Arquitectos

The Ants’ House is formally conceived considering the surrounding environment and its location on a large plot in the Manzanares Park, immersed in the mountains near Madrid.

The house is meant to dominate the vast natural world which lies beyond its entrance. Its shape is designed by nature. Just like an outstretched hand, the house works its way through the almond trees reaching out from in between the branches, reaching towards different spaces and lights effects.

N2X035 HOUSE in Azores Islands, Portugal by N2X Arquitectos

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

Article source: N2X Arquitectos

This project is located on a plot of land of some interest in a place called Lugar da Ribeira da Praia. We started from an unusual context, as this plot housed some ruins at a higher location, naturally kept apart from the surrounding lower agglomerate with which it apparently dialogues and which we then designated as “village”.

Seacliff House in Sydney, Australia by Chris Elliott Architects

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

Article source: Chris Elliott Architects

A house for a family of four.

Everyday life occurs on a platform overlooking the sea. Beneath this the rock is carved out to form a grotto. Above the platform is a protective cocoon for sleeping. Astride all this at roof level sits a belvedere accessible only via a narrow curved stair, as in a Martello tower.
