2211 Cambie – South Creek Landing in Vancouver, Canada by Arno Matis Architecture

Monday, February 19th, 2018

Article source: Arno Matis Architecture

A once forgotten site sitting adjacent a new underground rapid transit line, this project sits on the southern gateway of Vancouver’s grand Cambie boulevard.

Designed to capture the vortex energy of the neighbouring bridgehead, building vocabulary is sweeping and spiraled to capture this energy created by the adjacent bridge ramps. Edges are curved and fragmented to evoke the idea of movement, as if the energy of the street itself is pealing the surfaces of the building apart. The building turns its corners in prow-like forms that track sun-angles and provide passive horizontal and vertical sun-shading.

Yesterday’s House in Valencia, Spain by Raul Garcia Studio

Sunday, February 18th, 2018

Article source: Raul Garcia Studio

Architecture arises from the need to give shelter to human beings from climatology. Aesthetics is then added to this practical component. Therefore, generating a ‘shelter’ that protects us from the outside while allowing us to be in perfect contact with the same on both sides is a really attractive idea. From this premise arises the refurbishment of this house, open to the outside through a backyard. In addition, as always, natural light penetrates the interior through skylights and interior partitions crowned with glass that provide zenithal light to the whole space. The program is divided into two heights, the lower one with the day program and the upper one that collects the bedrooms and other nocturnal uses. The backyard can be read as much as a continuation on the exterior of the home, as an extension of the garden that culminates in a barbecue and living room. And it is precisely this duality that allows the boundaries between architectural spaces to blur.

Brucato House in Los Angeles, California by Martin Fenlon Architecture

Friday, February 16th, 2018

Article source: Martin Fenlon Architecture 

The Brucato house is a rare example of new construction within a Historic Preservation Zone (HPOZ) in the city of Los Angeles. Located in the Highland Park-Garvanza district, which is the largest HPOZ in Los Angeles, the project consists of a new house that replaced the client’s small, aging bungalow. Since the original house was determined to be historically insignificant, its replacement would have to be compatible with the historic context and subject to the HPOZ board’s approval. And with a limited budget, it was critical to reuse certain elements of the structure, such as the existing foundation and parts of the existing framing.
