A BODEGA in Galicia, Spain by Cubus

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

Article source: Cubus

The old stone wineries of the Ribeira Sacra (Galicia) were (and are) heterogeneous constructions linked to house where the activities of the local economy are developed, such as preserving ham, wine and spirits in addition to storing straw and putting the beasts to rest.

The project fully recovers one of these old cellars to convert it into a new home. The project is based on three premises:

Bala Line House in Ontario, Canada by Williamson Chong Architects

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

Article source: Williamson Chong Architects

Within Toronto’s network of well-preserved ravines and valleys, historic rail lines are occasionally found nestled unused on steep, wooded slopes between the upper plateau of residential fabric and the river valley habitats down below. A de-commissioned rail spur – once used for an industry-focused early 20th-century city – has evolved into a common passage for hikers and neighbours as it connects the local ravine pathway system to newly developed community areas such as the weekly farmers market at the revitalized Don Valley Brickworks. Upslope, a rare accessible lot lining the western edge of the ravine, some 60 feet above the Bala Line rail path, is the site for a single-family dwelling that engages this alternative connection to the city infrastructure.

CaSa Tu in Santa Cruz De Tenerife, Spain by equipo olivares arquitectos

Sunday, March 13th, 2016

Article source: equipo olivares arquitectos

The client spent a long time searching for a top floor apartment to live in; as soon as he found this property, he was in no doubt and he purchased it. The current dwelling was converted from a dated 4 bed flat to a bright and airy space, creating a continuity between interior and exterior, benefiting from the spacious terrace and providing the most possible space to the remaining area. The exterior areas can be used all the year on thanks to good weather of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

Circle House in Bucharest, Romania by Razvan Barsan + Partners

Friday, March 11th, 2016

Article source: Razvan Barsan + Partners 

The shape of the building is inspired by the exoskeleton of a marine creature called a nautilus. Its coiled shell gave us the idea of arranging the inner areas along a spiraled path, thus achieving a fluid and dynamic space. This organizing generated in volumetry skins of variable heights and materials (concrete, glass, metal and plaster), thus modeling a curved, organic form.

Stone House in Jodhpur, India by Design Atelier

Thursday, March 10th, 2016

Article source: Design Atelier

In Jodhpur, we fondly use stone in design, together with structural concrete and wood. To us, traditional building materials play an important role in architecture, because in the hot 45-degree sun, buildings need to take into account the local weather as also a tool to achieve a connection with the historical ambience. Over the years, the use of local stone has created an omnipresent relationship between the stone urbanscape and architecture. We have added to that mix a contemporary sensibility, and a climate cooling effect of water garden and plants seen through Floor-to-ceiling windows with screens are designed to maximise view over the water gardens, and soft surfaces that do not reflect abundant natural light. The extent of the detailed use of stone screens and expensive detailing is limited by financial possibilities.
