Three courtyard house in Pinheiros de Azeitao, Portugal by Extrastudio

Sunday, January 17th, 2016

Article source: Extrastudio

The house is located in a small village 25km south of Lisbon, within a natural park whose name Azeitao, derives from Arabic, Az-zeitum – the olive grove. Predominantly a rural region, the area has a hot climate, perfect for the production of wine and olive oil. The clients, a couple of agronomists with two children, inherited a long, narrow plot in the middle of the village and decided to move from their apartment, looking for a different way of living.

House#01 in Vigevano, Italy by Andrea rubini architetto

Saturday, January 16th, 2016

Article source: Andrea rubini architetto 

Project house#01 is the result of a 80 square meter apartment (end 1950s) renovation in Vigevano.

I tried merging different cultures, from the love for designers AG Fronzoni and Prouvè on the one hand and my wife’s Scandinavian influence on the other. The outcome is a mix of contemporary elements – tied to our chronological age – accompanied by items from the ’50s/60s that are linked to the age of the building we live in.

UNTITLED #7 in Singapore by Studio Wills + Architects

Friday, January 15th, 2016

Article source: Studio Wills + Architects

Untitled #7 is a renovation to an old 2-storey apartment at The Arris, located within Tanjong Pagar Area in Singapore.

The original pared-down interior stood in stark contrast with a context consisting of an eclectic mix of shop houses adorned with multiple colours, materials, textures and ornaments:  There was a strong division between the interior and the external environment.

Student Center Georgetown University in Washington DC by Ikon.5 architects

Wednesday, January 13th, 2016

Article source: Ikon.5 architects 

The New South Student Center at Georgetown University is a renovation and addition that transforms an existing mid century residence hall into a vibrant new university living room for undergraduate life. Inspired by the unique ‘Hoya Saxa’ (stones) identity of the Georgetown student body, the center creates an experience of study and casual living spaces carved out of interior and exterior stone edifices. The ‘Saxa’ living wall is a stone clad green wall that provides a natural bio-friendly character to the Great Room that overlooks the Potomac and is one of many design features that assist this project in achieving a LEED Gold certification. Inside the ‘Saxa’ living wall are 12 individual wood clad group study rooms with enhanced video display systems and writable glass partition for students to work on projects together or separately. The Riverside Terrace is an outdoor landscaped area that extends the living space of the Great Room outdoors and overlooks the Potomac.

Thursday, January 7th, 2016

Article source: Open Source Architecture

SlrSrf is a compact project that embeds performance characteristics into the architectural surface. Optimization of the roof as a solar receiving surface for photovoltaic electrical production generates the form of the 450 square foot (42m2) addition and renovation of an existing house in Culver City, California.  Coupling the client’s desire to create a net zero electrical consumption with the generation of the form provides an opportunistic strategy to integrate performance with the sculptural nature of the architectural entity.
