DS House in Brussels, Belgium by DWEK ARCHITECTURE + PARTNERS s.c./s.p.r.l.u.

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

Article source: DWEK ARCHITECTURE + PARTNERS s.c./s.p.r.l.u. 

Although we now think spontaneously of symmetry as being the perfect replication of two sides around a central axis, originally, to cite Vitruvius, “symmetry is a proper agreement between the members of the work itself and relation between the different parts and the whole general scheme”. There is no mention of bilateral symmetry. In Greek, summetria quite simply means “proportion” or “measure”. But since ancient times, sensible to balance and stability, mankind has built edifices that adopt the rules of bilateral symmetry: pyramids, temples, cathedrals, etc., along with vases, bifaces and steles. Yet too perfect symmetry induces boredom. Emotion leaps out from imperfections, the unforeseen and discrepancies.

Three courtyard house in Pinheiros de Azeitao, Portugal by Extrastudio

Sunday, January 17th, 2016

Article source: Extrastudio

The house is located in a small village 25km south of Lisbon, within a natural park whose name Azeitao, derives from Arabic, Az-zeitum – the olive grove. Predominantly a rural region, the area has a hot climate, perfect for the production of wine and olive oil. The clients, a couple of agronomists with two children, inherited a long, narrow plot in the middle of the village and decided to move from their apartment, looking for a different way of living.

URBAN ECO HOUSE in București, Romania by Tecon Architecture

Monday, January 11th, 2016

Article source: Tecon Architecture

The selection of the site for the future dwelling was determined by the proximity to Herastrau Park, which also determined the small size of the lot which is surrounded by undesirable neighboring areas.  A direct consequence of these conditions was the vertical development of the spaces (ground floor garage, first floor living quarters, second floor for sleeping area and the third floor for relaxation terrace/ spa to make up for the small and shady yard from the yard level).
