The new building of the Supreme Court of the Netherlands by KAAN Architecten has been decidedly integrated into the elegant historic city centre of The Hague. The building, which houses a staff of 350, verges on large: 104 metres long, 22 metres deep and 27 metres tall. These dimensions, with the measured vibrancy of its facades, add some allure to this part of the city centre.
The plane trees and six legal scholars in bronze seated on pedestals make for a wide gateway on the Korte Voorhout, a royal route leading to the buildings from Parliament. The entrance hall seems to have been chiselled from a solid block of marble. It serves as a sturdy base for the superstructure of glass panels and slender latticework. These and other ostensible contradictions seem to reflect the work of the Supreme Court itself. Open and closed, distinguished and functional, hard and ethereal, rough and refined – all exist alongside routine business, on which judgements are passed with great clarity of mind.

‘Suitable Farmhouse’ is a villa for a mid 40 year old couple who decided to return to their hometown to live with their 80 year-old mother. The villa is intended to provide two individual households under one roof because each party has been upholding their own lifestyles for a long time. Two main private spaces are designed as two independent studios and they are located in opposite corners of the house. The mother has an active lifestyle, where she frequently comes and goes, while the couple is more introverted and reclusive, preferring to stay home, cook, and watch movies. The mother enjoys spending the majority of her time tending to the garden, while the couple enjoys inviting guests with whom to cook and entertain. These two varying sets of influence help to shape the design of this farmhouse.

The peculiar topography of the site, its orientation and mountain views of Cuera are the starting points in the design of an artist´s residence/studio + countryside bed&breakfast in the Asturian population La Pereda, in the village of Llanes, Spain. The project takes advantage of a loophole in the law -which requires regional build-pitched roofs of curved ceramic tile- to propose a building that looks forward the integration into the natural beauty of the area more than in the built environment that surrounds it. To reach a level that will optimize the views of the mountains and the forest surrounding the plot, the action takes place in the northern part of the site. The existing hill there is removed to play with a single green roof that shelters the different uses, thereby diluting the boundaries between the natural and the built in a game between the tectonic and estereotomic that refers to the land-art interventions. A curved stone wall leads from the main road and back into the building and gains altitude to become the load bearing wall that supports the concrete deck, while separates the residence/studio area, for the artist private use, from the small b&b open to the public. This central wall, massive and forceful to ensure the privacy of both functions, contrast to the facades oriented to the north and south in the housing area and to the east in the b&b, much lighter and visually permeable, to enhance the views. The cover in continuity with the ground not only integrates the building into the environment and minimizes the height above the ground naturally, but also alows to maximize energy savings.

The design of this villa is a contemporary blend of Mexican and Arabic cultures, where knowledge of local traditions, materials, textures, mexican colors, as well as the knowledge of some methods of the building area were important for their development and termination.

Architecture is a project of development; it’s about inquiring, exploring new ground, about experimentation. It’s working with the landscape, trying to find integration with the material, with proportions. It’s about understanding pictures, their impacts and coloring. For us this process starts from the context and is culturally determined.
