Social Housing Bon Pastor in Barcelona, Spain by SVArquitectura

Friday, June 8th, 2012

Article source: SVArquitectura

The building is part of a set of trapezoidal shape that creates a courtyard. The building is divided into two volumes, a linear and rectangular block disposed along the street Sas, and another L-shaped block resting on the road. The elevation of the street facade is formed by the articulation of the two volumes that define a gap.

Spittelau Viaducts Housing Project in Vienna, Austria by Zaha Hadid Architect

Sunday, June 3rd, 2012

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architect

A landmark project completed as part of a waterside revitalization project – our three-part structure, comprising apartments, offices and artists’ studios, woven through, around and over the arched bays of a disused railway viaduct. Our buildings interact playfully with the viaduct, creating new exterior spaces and vistas.

As part of an initiative undertaken by the City of Vienna to revitalize the Wiener Guertel, a neglected urban hinterland which traditionally marked the ‘dividing line’ between indigenous Viennese and immigrant communities, we designed and constructed the Spittelau Viaducts Housing Project.

Ibiza Brues in Spain by CMV Architects

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

Article source: CMV Architects

The residential complex tries to emphasize the equality of the houses opening them towards the sea and avoiding the frontal views between the different parts of the same volume, managing to increase the sense of space. Therefore, a sinuous floor is designed directing the view of each unit towards different points of the bay. The building is made up of two volumes different in terms of uses, volumes and aesthetics. The main one is a ground floor with six plant floors above, whereas the secondary one rises in two heights assigned to be back-to-back duplex attached houses.

El Nodo Housing in Solius, Spain by Exit Architects

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

Article source: Exit Architects

In a privileged place, at the end of a green meadow on the top of a hill and with the Avilés estuary on the horizon, two small metallic objects stand still upon a concrete basement and stare at the spectacle before their eyes. Dressed in a tailored suit which covers their head and torso, they protect themselves from the unpleasant rain and see the time going by.

Housing 137 in Barcelona, Spain by H Arquitectes

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Article source: H Arquitectes

The Urban Planning for ‘Plaça de l’Església’ in Granollers intends to regain the role of this square within the old part of town.

Our plot is the key factor for the consolidation of this centrality, due to it occupies the space that gives continuity to Barcelona Street and connects with ‘Plaça de la Porxada’.

The three facades of the building become a single skin that, thank to the continuous use of the stone even in the shutters, unifies the volume and consolidates the characteristic predominance of the massive-wall facades in the old quarter.

102 Dwellings in Carabanchel, Spain by Dosmasuno Arquitectos

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Article source: Dosmasuno Arquitectos

Despite the guidelines drawn on the plots, places need to express their own personality, to arise naturally, to construct themselves. And concretely this one is aligned against a green area, against the concatenation of public spaces that link the old Carabanchel district with its forest through the new neighbourhood. In response to these conditions, the dwellings are compressed onto one edge, onto a single linear piece, in search for the genus loci of the place, views and an optimal orientation in which east and west share the south, generating the limit of the activity, soothing the interior and defining the exterior

Muttawar Sustainable Residential Community in Muscat, Oman by Klingmann Architects + Brand Consultants

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

Article source: Klingmann Architects + Brand Consultants

In order to balance a respect for history and tradition with the need to create a modern neighborhood, the design takes cues from the regional architecture and builds on the best practices in contemporary architecture. The aspiration for the project is to build a sustainable development that is of high quality while being cost-efficient.

Community is organized by the principles of the Arabic courtyard house

  • Architect: Klingmann Architects + Brand Consultants
  • Name of project: Muttawar Sustainable Residential Community
  • Location: Muscat, Oman
  • Project Area: 64,640 m2
  • Team: Anna Klingmann, Enrique Limon, Simon Lee , Caren Becker, Fidelma Hawney, Ling Zhong
  • Project Scope: Masterplanning, Architectural Design, Landscape Design
  • Project Type: Residential Community with Mixed-Use
  • Client: Global Omani Development & Investment Company

Close-up of gateway – traditional motifs and screens

The community is organized according to the principles of the Arabic courtyard house, a response that is sensitive to the culture and climate of the place. Expanded to a whole self-sustaining community, this vision creates a new type of residential development that has the neighborly feel of a house that has expanded to nurture a new community while balancing the vibrancy of a city in microcosm.

Main entrance gateway into the modern neighborhood

Sustainability is at the core of the architectural expression, encompassing environmental, social, economic and cultural sustainability by preserving traditional crafts and promoting new techniques and technologies. The design of the residential development is small scale, compact and organic, and will comprise locally sourced materials including limestone, marble, and aluminum. It is inherently sustainable through passive means, such as natural ventilation, the use of traditional arcaded spaces and loggias, mashrabiya screens and water features to maximize passive cooling.
