Go.mirGUEST House in Jeju-do, Korea by MoonHoon Architects

Friday, October 9th, 2015

Article source: MoonHoon Architects 

Gomir

Go happens to be the Sirname of the client… mir in Korean means a dragon…so Gomir means Go’s dragon…

The site

Jeju is an Island south of Korean peninsular, famous as a vacation spot. The landscape is dominated by halla mountain in the center and basalt rocks by the sea. The weather is more balmy than mainland which allows for more exotic vegetation growth. The site is located just five minute walk from a famous tourist site called Yongdoam(dragon’s head), which is a basalt formation that looks like a dragon’s head.

X House in Barcelona, Spain by Cadaval & Solà-Morales

Friday, October 9th, 2015

Article source: Cadaval & Solà-Morales

The Power of Form

The X House project aims to solve by the definition of a system, language, or even through a unique form, a number of inquiries that rise up when we read the specific given site: how to protect and give protagonism to an impressive pine, that is located on the top of the site, and that makes access and approximation to the house extremely complex from the street; how to avoid deciding between the views to the sea and those to the mountains, and allow both visions in opposite directions; how to neutralize through form the presence of the contiguous constructions, to build up a fake isolation that denies the neighbours; how to double the main views, permitting quality frontal views from the front and the rear of the house; how to resolve so many a priories with a simple movement that answers to all of the previous aims without prioritizing nor explicitly formulating a response to any of them. The form, a unique form, is the result of a long process of search of individual answers to each of those challenges; thus, the form is not an a priori, but an effort to give a unitary response that satisfies each of the questions rose up in the design process.

Richmond Heights Home in St. Louis, Missouri by Mademan design

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

Article source: Mademan design

On a steep, narrow, vacant lot in Richmond Heights we built a modern home. The process wasn’t easy, including months of back-and-forth discussion with the municipality, losing the original contractor that introduced us to the project, and editing $100k out of the budget. In the end, we created one of The City’s only modern, energy efficient, affordable, new homes and one that still meets most of the clients’ wishlist as well as their budget.

VALERIA HOUSE in Buenos Aires, Argentina by BAK arquitectos

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

Article source: BAK arquitectos

This work is the outcome of a process that began in 2004 with the construction of Besonias and Almeida Architects Summer House in the forest of Mar Azul.

The purpose was to do an intervention in a place of significant landscape value, an opportunity to propose alternatives for design and construction, considering caring of the natural environment as a fundamental premise. The answer was the proposal of a minimal architecture both in material and formal resources, not only as an aesthetic choice, but as an ethical principle of valorization of a wiser use of the resources available. This stripped architecture should be incorporated into the landscape with a will of belonging, seeking to join the existing reality.

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

Article source: Arq. Alberto Tonconogy 

From the beginning, the Master Plan of this property was conceived in various phases of development: hotel, bungalows, villas and winery.

It’s difficult to achieve this organic process when embarking on nature and environmental projects.

In any complex project, resolving unknown issues can lead to even superior results.
