Casa Del Pico in Spain by Ábaton Arquitectura (designed using Microstation)

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

Article source: Ábaton Arquitectura

Since the land was on a high slope it was necessary to build a two-story villa. The idea of two structures floating on rock was possible because of the granite on the land. The bottom of the swimming pool is irregular imitating the shape of the granite on which it stands. The access to the house through one of the sides discovers a huge glass window overlooking three outstanding olm oaks around which the house was designed. To one side there are the public areas such as living room, kitchen and to the other side there are the private areas – bedrooms, bathrooms- arranged in two floors.

Treehouse in Victoria, Australia by FMD Architects (designed with Microstation and 3dS Max)

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

Article source: FMD Architects

The site is a residential block in Lorne, Victoria. Several large eucalyptus trees are clustered in the southeastern end of the block, offering a treed streetscape context to the site.

The house was to contain individual zones for the couple and their 2 adult daughters, with the opportunity to separate access between the spaces. A large Living and Dining space with outdoor entertaining areas were required, within which all family members and friends could congregate. Another important brief requirement was a space in which the client could practice yoga, offering spatial isolation with an external outlook.

Small Swedish House in Höganäs, Sweden by DinellJohansson (designed using MicroStation)

Sunday, October 30th, 2011

Article source: DinellJohansson

This small summerhouse at the coast of Höganäs was modeled after Palladios famous villas in the Veneto. Different from those extraordinary estates, this house is all about spatial economy. The goal was to create a maximum amount of spatial subdivisions in a building whose size was limited by budget constraints. With Palladios villas it shares the intriguing quality of the cross shaped space and the idea of summer life as an utterly joyful experience.

Fortress of Franzenfeste in Italy by Markus Scherer, Meran with Walter Dietl, Schlanders Designed using Microstation

Sunday, September 25th, 2011

Article source: Markus Scherer, Meran with Walter Dietl, Schlanders

“Begun under Francis I in the year 1833 – completed by Ferdinand I in the year 1838”, reads the Latin inscription over the gate of the fortress. In just five years, over 6,000 workers and soldiers built a blocking position at one of the narrowest points in the Eisack valley. It has the dimensions of a small town and, with a surface area of 20 hectares, is the largest fortification in the Alpine region. With this monumental defensive work the Habsburgs hoped to halt the advance of the revolutionary changes provoked by the French revolution.
