Villa in Kirishima, Japan by Atelier KAN

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

Article source: Atelier KAN

It is a villa built in the mountains of Kirishima famous as a summer resort with rich natural hot springs. A spectacular view over Kinko Bay and Sakurajima spreads beyond the south slope. In order to make use of the superb view, we adopted a structure in which the approach level floats as it is against the slope in order to make the viewpoint higher than the grounding property. Also, in order to preserve the natural topography, I widened the jumping part and reduced the ground contacting surface. Horizontal line floating in the vertical line of trees is the essential point of design, finish the roof of the horizontal plane and the floor board white, and the vertical elements such as pillars are made to release concrete with texture. It is an image that the floor board and the wall board protruded from the wall of the concrete piercing the slope.

Cliff house / Flying container house in Johannesburg, South-Africa by Architecture for a change (pty)ltd

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

Article source: Architecture for a change (pty)ltd 

The main idea was to create a lightweight, off the grid, and affordable house. The design philosophy relates to critical regionalism within architectural theory. The South-Africa residential design market is still stuck with conventional building methods that aren’t suitable for our environment (colonial building methods). We had to analyse our current solutions, available technology and where the future is heading before we could start designing this house.

STV House in Biobío, Chile by Cristian Berrios Architects

Sunday, May 21st, 2017

Article source: Cristian Berrios Architects

From the architect. “Reinforced concrete does not grow like wood, is not rolled like steel sections, is not jointed like masonry. It is more comparable with cast iron, another material cast in moulds, in which through long experience shapes have been developed which lead easily and gently from one constructive element to the next without any shock or sudden break. It is the overall view which, integrating the parts into the whole, conditions these lovely shapes.” (Robert Maillart, 1938)

Hello Lisbon Castelo in Portugal by Andre Espinho Arquitectura

Sunday, May 21st, 2017

Article source: Andre Espinho Arquitectura

This kind of intervention stands for a new approach and vision on the built heritage of big cities which, most of time, are left to abandonment and abrasion of time for different reasons, either these are historical, social or economic.

In this example we can highlight the Investor´s will and initiative, along with the knowledge of technicians, Architects, Engineers and builders to restore life and dignity to a building that was in a great state of degradation and which purpose has been mischaracterized over time. In a contemporary perspective and in it´s own context, we tried to enhance the experience of inhabiting the intrinsic features of the new and the old, in order to keep the most of the building´s character and expression also in the articulation of its interior space.

The Project´s basic idea was to have minimum impact in the natural setting. Having this in mind we planed the house to be felt smaller tan what it really is. In proportion it is 15% smaller tan the average existing projects in the club prioritizing the relation between the architecture and its natural setting.

PIREHUEICO HOUSE in Antiago, Chile by Elemental

Friday, May 19th, 2017

Article source: Elemental 

When we met the client for the first time, he asked us to do house with the color of the shadow. We thought that was an interesting challenge and we accept to design a private house for a rich client, a program that normally we don’t do because not relevant enough.

We were asked to design a summer/winter house in a remote landscape in the most southern part of Chile. More than a design, the client wanted us to consider all the variables that might be the case for the project and formulate an equation with them; the design then had to be just the resolution of that equation.
