Marquee at San Juan Bosco Square in Pamplona, Spain by MLMR architects

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

Article source: MLMR architects 

The project is a small marquee designed to improve the pedestrian access to an underground parking, located in the Plaza San Juan Bosco, in Pamplona. Originally, the access was exposed, and consisted of stairs accompanied by old metal railings. The commission, therefore, consisted on covering such stairs; and the execution budget was very small.

Villa G in Vilnius, Lithuania by Audrius Ambrasas Architects

Sunday, February 1st, 2015

Article source: Audrius Ambrasas Architects

The main architectural idea was provided by its siting in the Pavilniai Regional Park : the house has to dissolve in the landscape. Curved roofs all the way to the ground, and fluid forms extended by timber pergolas, are the most important architectural means achieving this effect. The building is designed on one level. Two boomerang shapes with pitched roofs combined with a shared common zone covered with a flat roof create its spatial expression. The utility zone is located in the northern part (a shed and garage, kitchen, storage room, boiler room, laundry). Four bedrooms and a bathroom face east. The common zone is located in the southwest. The dining-room, recreational and active zones are planned here. There is a terrace behind glass cases under the extended roof.

Sebastopol Barn House in California by ANDERSON ANDERSON ARCHITECTURE

Sunday, February 1st, 2015

Article source: ANDERSON ANDERSON ARCHITECTURE

The classic barn form of the Sebastopol Barn House is the result of an historic timber frame structure dismantled in upstate New York, cleaned, cataloged and refurbished in Texas, and planned for relocation in the wine country of Northern California. The interior enclosed living spaces within the barn form are carefully designed to preserve the massive open space of the frame, weaving in and out of the existing timbers as a simple background of folding white planes, highlighting the special wood and joinery, and gathering the mysterious light, shadow, and spatial tracery of the floating beams and columns. All new elements of the architecture are constructed of simple materials, painted white, so that only the barn frame itself is highlighted. The pure form of the barn exterior is counterpoised with a low concrete wing cut into the hillside, locking the barn into its meadow landscape with simply formed outdoor courtyard living spaces formed by the two wings.

SL HOUSE in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Speziale Linares | Arquitectos

Sunday, February 1st, 2015

Article source: Speziale Linares | Arquitectos

In an irregular lot, the house is located in order to win the major lake view. In relation to this, the social sector appears on the ground floor, composed of living and dining room, kitchen and an opened gallery, free of columns that frames the view and proposes a fluid connection inside – outside. On the same floor, a set of solid volumes, containing services, work as visual barriers and give privacy to the house. Over them, on the first floor, there is a single volume of concrete that contains the private sector, from where you also have a privileged view of the landscape.

Guggenheim Helsinki Museum in Finland by LPzR architetti associati & Principioattivo architecture group

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

Article source: LPzR architetti associati & Principioattivo architecture group

The skyline of the Guggenheim Helsinki Museum emerges as a sequence of soft golden waves undulating in the harbor.

To the north the volumes are low, to avoid shading the public realm and not to overlook the Palace Hotel; then they rise rapidly and decrease in the center of the building; towards the park the waves rise again and fall to the south, where they find a perfect balance with the harbor’s public realm. There’s a central slope between north and south so that the volume does not interfere with the main views from the park Tähtitornin Vuori, the Helsinki Cathedral and the Uspenski Cathedral.

Phoenix House in Berkeley, California by Anderson Anderson Architecture

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

Article source: Anderson Anderson Architecture

The Phoenix house is named for the mythical bird that rose from the ashes of fire to start a new life. This home on a hillside site looking across San Francisco Bay to a panoramic view of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge is a rebuild following a tragic fire on the site. The original house was built in 1952 by Berkeley architect Henry Hill for the family of a local lighting fabricator who collaborated with many important Bay Area artists, artisans and architects, from early masters such as Julia Morgan and Bernard Maybeck, to the region’s mid-century modern masters. With this legacy, the original home was filled with works of art and craft from local craftspeople and the family’s travels in Asia and the Middle East, much of which was lost in the fire.
