X House in Barcelona, Spain by Cadaval & Solà-Morales

Friday, October 9th, 2015

Article source: Cadaval & Solà-Morales

The Power of Form

The X House project aims to solve by the definition of a system, language, or even through a unique form, a number of inquiries that rise up when we read the specific given site: how to protect and give protagonism to an impressive pine, that is located on the top of the site, and that makes access and approximation to the house extremely complex from the street; how to avoid deciding between the views to the sea and those to the mountains, and allow both visions in opposite directions; how to neutralize through form the presence of the contiguous constructions, to build up a fake isolation that denies the neighbours; how to double the main views, permitting quality frontal views from the front and the rear of the house; how to resolve so many a priories with a simple movement that answers to all of the previous aims without prioritizing nor explicitly formulating a response to any of them. The form, a unique form, is the result of a long process of search of individual answers to each of those challenges; thus, the form is not an a priori, but an effort to give a unitary response that satisfies each of the questions rose up in the design process.

Residence at Delhi, India by Malik Architecture

Friday, October 9th, 2015

Article source: Malik Architecture

The Bhandare Residence straddles and synthesizes a multiple set of matrices. The underlying design philosophy is Sanyam or Balance, which is translated into least impact on a relatively dense urban site. Visual continuity between the front and the rear gardens and the negation of built-up form at the ground level, allows the house to both embrace the form of the site, whilst ushering in natural light and ventilation.

Building Castelli in Santa Fe, Argentina by BIAGIONI/PECORARI Architects

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

Article source: Ramiro Sosa

Castelli owes its appearance to an interpretation of a recent urban regulation proposed for some “corridors streets” of this low-density area.

In a small corner lot of 11.60 x 16.50mts, the block complies with the mandatory street withdrawals and separates from inner limits lots, which give a certain height to take advantage of views of the Setúbal lagoon and the center of the city.
