Polycarbonate Cabin in Guanaqueros, Chile by Alejandro Soffia / Architect

Friday, July 1st, 2016

Article source: Alejandro Soffia / Architect

In 1953 Le Corbusier wrote a letter to the Chilean Architects, and was sent through Emilio Duhart, a very important Chilean Architect that was drawing for him the buildings that he was doing in that moment in India. In this letter he emphasize the need on taking care of people while developing a design process. He said that “in that moment academic ideas where left behind, and the smallest measurements, the shorter distances or the smallest built spaces, become precious as a glass of water in the desert”.

VillAnn in Halland, Sweden by Wingårdhs

Friday, July 1st, 2016

Article source: Wingårdhs

I’ve been wanting to design this house for a long time. The obvious design, with a series of rooms arranged along a line. My client wanted to be sure that it was possible to construct a good house on the site before he went ahead and bought it. This meant that time was critical one autumn day in 2003.

Article source: Metrópolis Oficina de Arquitectura

The main idea for this house was to create a concavity to get a controlled view inside the lot.

The house is a small tribute to the pursuit of Mies Van der Rohe, where the transparency and the inner courtyards  were held.

Article source: Martin Dulanto Arquitecto

A white box, a habitat platform and the space generated between both elements, composes this project.

The box is separated from the base creating a large space open to the landscape. The white block contains the master bedroom, which runs through the whole front of the house, facing the sea, and the two guest bedrooms, located on the back of the lot. These three rooms are organized around a hall, which reaches the staircase, and also connects all three levels.

House in Gaüses, Spain by Anna & Eugeni Bach, arquitectes

Wednesday, June 29th, 2016

Article source: Anna & Eugeni Bach, arquitectes

On a narrow, elongated site where a house already stood it was proposed to build a small studio that could be used as both a paint workshop and an occasional weekend home for the children of the owners.

The starting point for the project was given by the financial aspect, as it needed to be an economically viable project on a tiny budget estimated at seventy thousand euros. This factor limited both the structural possibilities and the finishes, which meant we had a very clear starting premise: we needed to work with the local industrial­ists (if possible from the same village), and with technical solutions that they were accustomed to, as they were the traditionally adopted ones in the typical constructions of the area. This premise led us to work with load bearing walls, single-direction forgings, aluminium windows of reasonable dimensions and conventional finishes such as painted render.

Casa dos Caseiros in Campinas, Brazil by 24.7 Arquitetura

Wednesday, June 29th, 2016

Article source: 24.7 Arquitetura

“Casa dos Caseiros” was first created to answer a private order for a social interest dwelling project to be built numerously throughout some cities in Rio de Janeiro state. Unfortunately after some time of development the project had to be canceled by the contractor.

Originally it was designed using steel frame as structural system, after cancelation we have updated the whole project to use structural concrete blocks, more usual in Brazilian construction, and still a rational modular building system. The project was set aside for a while until came the opportunity to build one unit as a prototype and still be used as home for the housekeepers of a property in a rural district from Campinas.
