“Kyoku” – Bridge House in Japan by ArchiBlur Lab

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

Article source: ArchiBlur Lab

Weight can be felt, but does feeling have weight? The strength of thought in tugging out the tension at the threshold between matter and imagination, for creators, is to return to the nature of architecture and practice its uniquely creative energy.

This creator begins by developing three concepts relating to weight to describe and develop the materiality and spatial characteristics they present. These three starting points act between nature and artificiality, and provide feeling with different layers of weight sense.

Saturday, July 2nd, 2016

Article source: AMBAU taller d’arquitectes

This peculiar and personal “loft” is located near Malvarrosa Beach, in the distinctive neighborhood of “El Cabañal” at Valencia City. The Origin house responded to the top floor of a very common type of town house between party walls. It’s accessed from the Street through a narrow staircase. The depth of plot required the existence of intermediate rooms that were illuminated and ventilated by a small courtyard; on the other hand, the kitchen and the “toilet” occupied the rear façade as attached parts, and connected through an ancient terrace that had been closed; Finally, throughout the house roof was a ceiling of plaster that hid the actual volume of the steep cover Gable.
