Esker House in San Candido, Italy by Plasma Studio

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Article source: Plasma Studio

Esker Haus (Esker = Stratified geological formation) is a self-contained residential unit placed on top of an existing house from the 1960s. The project has been developed as a parasite which adopts the structure of its host and gradually distorts it to fit a unique organization and morphology. The apartment is formed by a series of steel and timber frames that deform to recreate the smooth hillsides of the surrounding Dolomites. This partly accessible roofscape also determines the spatial character inside; the spaces unfold through a series of angular and dynamic planes creating ever-changing perspectives and spatial constellations.

Article source: MIDE architetti

The project site involves an old country house, built in 1887 in the immediate neighborhood of Lucca and a most recent farmhand’s cottage. The buildings are integrated in the countryside of Lucca and maintain its typical characteristics.Specifically, the buildings are located in a hilly landscape, between gentle slopes, where oaks and chestnuts lick the property. In this background, the renovation has been directed to both the maintenance and the enhancement of typical elements of the local architecture, such as exposed brick wall, stone of Matraia and chestnut wood.Pursuing this goal, and in full respect of the typical features, the components and materials used have been revised in a contemporary way, adopting the most appropriate construction techniques, in order to ensure the achievement of the best possible result.

Grand Oak House in Elblag, Poland by MSWW Ministerstwo Spraw We Wnetrzach

Saturday, November 28th, 2015

Article source: MSWW Ministerstwo Spraw We Wnetrzach 

Grand Oak House is a story in which a key role was played by the beautiful oak wood … Wood left a legacy by his grandfather … That it set the tone for the color and mood of meaning to the interior. Table of Elements woodwork and many other furniture – stores the memory of the people and the time that is behind us. And the contemporary environment of concrete, steel, gray and patterns subtly interacts with the past enchanted in oak jars. There does not end with reference to nature; both bathrooms and bedrooms are continuing a dialogue with nature. Forest, meadows and animals remind us of the continuity of our natural heritage.

TMOLO House in Asturias, Spain by PYO arquitectos

Tuesday, November 24th, 2015

Article source: PYO arquitectos

Before its conversion, the farmhouse was untouched for over five decades and needed a complete renovation to be adapted for contemporary needs. There were two construction sites: the main house and a stable. The main house was in a very bad condition, overgrown with vegetation, and numerous repairs had to be made to make it livable. The stone and timber structure of the stable was significantly deteriorated and most of the walls had to be replaced.
