Hajdo house in Odorheiu Secuiesc, Romania by s.c. BLIPSZ s.r.l

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

Article source: s.c. BLIPSZ s.r.l

The land dominates the context defining factors: the orientation of the houses, favorable for every day life is obviously towards South, yet the slope which offers the view of the town in the valley and the faraway mountains descends to the North. The project assumes this contradiction and organizes the living space around the South-West facing terrace up the slope; the terrace is partially shaded from East and West and its position is vaguely reminiscent of the traditional household, organized around the yard.

Winsomere Cres in Westmere, Auckland, New Zealand by Dorrington Architects & Associates

Sunday, September 29th, 2013

Article source: Dorrington Architects & Associates

A contempory home incorporates the charming but time-worn house, and capitalises on the stunning views on offer.

The original house on this waterfront site was a double-skin brick bungalow with warren-like rooms and little connection with the foreshore. The clients liked the traditional detailing of the existing house but wanted to maximise the aspect and views.

Colegio Villa El Sol in El Bosque, Chile by GUBBINS ARQUITECTOS

Friday, September 27th, 2013

Article source: GUBBINS ARQUITECTOS

The project is located on a site with a special feature; it is 25 meters wide and 100 meters deep, which allows us to develop a 4-storey building occupying almost the entire ground surface. This gives the project a protagonist scale in the neighborhood.

The strategy to not “keep” the dimensions of the property (pre-existing length and width), was to organize the program of the school within a large regular volume, based on a double bay corridor, alternating classrooms and playgrounds in different levels and on both sides of the central circulation. This allowed us to open cross perspectives on the site, with views of the mountains and the sunset.
