This house is on the top of a hill, which gives you the full view of the Osaka Plain.

Its site is located on a slope and the upper side, across a path, is faced to the woods of a temple.

There used to be an old two-story wooden house and we planned to reserve as much of the former plantation as possible.

68 Social Rental Housing Units, 1 Residence For Physically Disabled Persons in Vigneux-sur-Seine Commune, France by MARGOT-DUCLOT Architectes Associés

Friday, July 22nd, 2016

Article source: MARGOT-DUCLOT Architectes Associés

The project on the city-block E2 appears as a singular and unique object; It signals the idea of a renewal of the main entry point to this neighborhood. This is why the architects chose to experiment with the implementation of two quality materials that are both complementary and opposites: brick for its domestic thickness and for its strong reference to the ground and to neighboring red brick façades; lacquered metal used for the lightness of this material and because it discretely hints at the comfort of the housing units and the use of balconies, while still avoiding their exposure to viewers from the street.

Villa Melana in Tyros, Greece by S2PiA Architects and 02 Architecture & Mech. Engineering

Friday, July 22nd, 2016

Article source: S2PiA architects

The short story

The project was awarded to us by a family leaving in Athens keen on a new country house in the Arcadian Landscape.

Design started mid-2012 and work on site was completed at the end of 2014.

The program

It all started as a simple snapshot; At a very steep site with clear view towards the sea a holiday retreat protects its inhabitants from the sun heat and the strong winds while soothing the senses under the moonlight.

We have placed the building at the only available naturally formed plateau of the site in order to avoid unnecessary groundworks that could spoil the relief.

Libertad street House in Montevideo, Uruguay by Arquitectos Pedro Livni + Karin Bia

Thursday, July 21st, 2016

Article source: Federico Cairoli

Starting with the aforementioned demands and the conviction of designing an urban house, two ideas relative to the spatial organization prevailed above the rest.

The first consisted of appealing to the horizontal dimension: this was materialized through the configuration of the living spaces in an open plan set at street level. In this manner it established a link and an uninterrupted prolongation of the interiority and domestic uses onto the exterior spaces. Continuity only mediated and protected from the street noise by green spaces. This was achieved with the application of diverse mobile walls which with their hiding and different configurations enable the spatial performance.

Philips Business Innovation Centre FiftyTwoDegrees in Nijmegen, Netherlands by Mecanoo architecten b.v.

Wednesday, July 20th, 2016

Article source: Mecanoo architecten b.v.

Knowledge centre

At the start of the new millennium, Philips Semiconductors (now NXP) wanted to expand its current production and research site in Nijmegen by creating a new knowledge centre for the development of semiconductors for the electronics industry. The existing production site is sealed off and fenced in for security reasons. The new knowledge centre, where technology, science, culture, work, living and leisure come together, fosters chance encounters and collaboration with diverse parties. The name of the complex, FiftyTwoDegrees, refers to the site’s 52nd degree of latitude, which like the ambition of the initiators, spans the entire world.

– Within the 36 m2 space, there will be a bedroom, a dinner-area, a lounge, an office, a kitchen and a bathroom.
