Patio House in Grândola, Portugal by PROMONTORIO

Friday, June 29th, 2018

Article source: PROMONTORIO

The house is located on a large field of mature cork oaks and stone pines in Grandola, Alentejo, near the Atlantic coast. Typologically, it is inspired on the Portuguese rural settlements known as “montes” which were usually located in dominant places in the landscape and formed by clusters of volumes informally positioned around a courtyard.  In like manner, the concept for this house spring from the idea of a central patio, which is the main source of light and shade.  Around and against this cut-off space, adjoining volumes aggregate the more private or servicing functions of the house —bedrooms, toilets, kitchen, pantry and storage, whereas the interstitial spaces between the volumes generate the social areas, namely, the living- and dining- rooms and the study.

Casa luna in Nerviano, Italy by BURATTI ARCHITETTI

Thursday, June 28th, 2018


This house has two souls as it has two levels: the ground floor is bright and open to the outside, enclosing all the typical functions like the living room, kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms; the underground floor is an intimate place, enclosed and dark, like a “bunker” where, in a large relax area, you can chill out on the sofa composition, watch a movie on the big screen, read a book in the wooden alcove or swim in the pool.

Pine Tree in Miami, Florida by SAOTA

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018

Article source: SAOTA

Layered views and blurring edges

Open plan living and the ability to live in and through your home has inspired this transparent and easy-living family home.  Set between the Indian Creek Canal and Pine Tree Drive in Miami’s historic Collin’s Waterfront district, the SAOTA-designed space is expansive and fluid – opening up to the activity of the canal when desired, or contained when privacy is needed.

Set on a strongly linear proportioned site, the building is porous, bringing the landscape and water bodies into the interior of the house to create a greater sense of space.

CASA HERMI-La casa de las veintiuna ventanas in Sagunto, Spain by Estudio IGLOO

Monday, June 25th, 2018

Article source: Estudio IGLOO

The idea is to transform the archetypal and insubstantial housing scheme with a central patio and two facades into a more open and flexible one, based on the succession of spaces qualified by movement and light.

The house will be inhabited by a single person, therefore, we apply the concept of simultaneity of use and spatial efficiency.
