Friday, March 17th, 2017

Article source: architecture R/T

Nivim is Goa’s first Gold rated green building certified by the IGBC – Indian Green Building Council in October 2013. It sits on a 1025 square meter property on a hill in a sleepy village in Goa. Before construction, the site had 14 fully mature trees- two jackfruit trees, one mango tree, two tamarind trees and one telful tree. The design of the house incorporates all these existing trees. Two trees in particular were located right in the center of the property and one of them rises up almost 15 meters.

Souvlaki Bar Restaurant in Nicosia, Cyprus by HappyANTS Interior Architecture and Design

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

Article source: HappyANTS Interior Architecture and Design

The concept for this pioneer restaurant was to successfully combine tradition with contemporary design and has set the example for other similar restaurants to follow. The result is a space with traditional atmosphere created in a unique and contemporary way just like the restaurant serves a traditional product in a unique and contemporary way. A low budget restaurant in minimal lines with “clean” materials in a combination of cold and warm colors. Inspired mostly by it’s name, the bar is the dominant element in the space. You can watch and enjoy how your food is being cooked sited on stools and counters or on conventional chairs and tables. This project was in collaboration with interior designer Leonidas Leonidou.

The Folding House in Chile by B+V Arquitectura

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

Article source: B+V Arquitectura 

The project is located near Lake Rapel, on a site of 896.5 sqm. This is characterized by a privileged view of the lake and a strong slope in most of its development. The budget forces to minimize the intervention in the slope, containing the largest amount of program in the minimum of flat space available at the beginning of the site. This, together with the high temperatures presented by Rapel’s microclimate in summer, implies the following problems: high program density, excessive solar radiation and lack of comfortable space for recreation.

Oak Pass House in Beverly Hills, California by Walker Workshop

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

Article source: v2com

The Oak Pass Main House sits atop a 3.5-acre ridge site with panoramic canyon views. The property’s topography and landscape, which most notably include over 130 protected Coast Live Oak Trees, were the primary drivers for the house’s design. In order to showcase and amplify the site’s inherent beauty, the house’s mass is buried into the hillside, with only a one-story pavilion above grade as it unfolds along the ridge.

Article source: Aresto Arquitetura

The terrain of 1347 square meters located in the city of Cajamar is inserted in one of the regions of greater natural diversity of the state of São Paulo, the region of the Japi mountain range.

The surrounding Atlantic Forest reveals an enormous natural complexity with the abundance of species, forms and colors, exposing a system in balance and very delicate. Thus, the conceptual motivation of the project was to represent this stability through the balanced composition of two blocks with divergent directions, colors and textures, but with identical formats.
