La Casa del Bosque in Federal, Mexico by grupoarquitectura

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

Article source: grupoarquitectura

The house consists of two very geometric separate volumes of concrete, one for services and other for the principal areas of the house. The two bodies are joined using steel bridges with glass floor that do not touch the trees and the forest and seems that we walk on the vegetation.

The staircase is part of these bridges and neither touches the Forest, is completely blown from the house.

KAFKA CASTLE in Sant Pere de Ribes, Spain by RICARDO BOFILL TALLER DE ARQUITECTURA

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

Article source: RICARDO BOFILL TALLER DE ARQUITECTURA

Identification on the part of some members of the Taller de Arquitectura with certain ideas of the Archigram movement, and enthusiasm for experimentation with geometry and its application possibilities to housing, are two factors given tangible form in Kafka’s Castle. This apartment building, on a hill overlooking the bay of Sitges, is fruit of the clustering of cubes around nuclei of vertical circulation. Each cube contains a minimalist environment: living-dining room or bathroom-bedroom, articulated on different levels. The color of the façades, chosen from a range of blues, expresses the intention to merge the building with its natural background, the sky.

Glass Farmhouse in Oregon by Olson Kundig

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig

Surrounded by wheat fields on a high-altitude plateau stand a small glass house and a solid, traditional barn. The owners, inspired by Philip Johnson’s Glass House, wanted a refuge that opens up to the prairie and mountains. The structures are conveniently close to each other and enjoy a sense of isolation at the end of a long country road. The roof of the wood-frame barn, which houses farm equipment below and guest rooms above, was inspired by the local vernacular and is echoed in the shed roof of the glass house.

Delta Shelter in Washington, by Olson Kundig

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig

Delta Shelter – a 1,000 square-foot cabin – is essentially a steel-clad box on stilts that can be completely shuttered when the owner is away. The 200 square-foot footprint of the house rises above a 40-acre, 100-year flood plain adjacent to the Methow River. The verticality, coloring and raw nature of the materials used for construction directly respond to the wildness of the setting. The owner sought a compact, easy to maintain, virtually indestructible building to house himself and his friends for fun and adventure in the mountains. With an exterior of steel, the house is virtually indestructible.

Rooftops – Twin House H in Bozen, Italy by bergmeisterwolf architekten

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Article source: bergmeisterwolf architekten

The gabled roof, the rooftop and the roofing of the windows were the central topics of the design. the natural and architectural surroundings were the inspiration for the rooftop. the mountain tops – the backdrop of the house – and the traditional farmsteads that characterize the area are abstractly cited and interpreted in a new way in the architecture. a parallel floor plan allowed for two houses under one roof. the two different apartments, planned for two sisters, are designed to let nature and the surroundings in. all of the windows were placed according to the views they offer, and the gardens are mirrored in the loggia on the ground floor as well as on the rooftop terrace, nestled between the rooftops. any open spaces are protected from the strong winds distinctive for this area. the loggias are located deep in the buildings, and the rooftop terrace is protected by an elongated piece of façade. the building interacts with its surroundings; the old stone wall is incorporated in the design. the two materials – cinderblock and brownish-black wooden slats – interact, illustrating the duality found on the inside.
