Masseria Moroseta in Ostuni, Italy by Andrew Trotter

Sunday, August 21st, 2016

Article source: Andrew Trotter 

Masseria Moroseta: a white stone farmhouse standing proudly on the ridge with views across the olive trees to the sea.

Built using traditional techniques and local materials, the modern architecture is influenced by masserie (farmhouses) of the past. Set in five hectares of olive groves with trees up to 500 years old, Masseria Moroseta is an enclave of pared-down relaxation and rural simplicity.

Sunday, August 21st, 2016

Article source: PLASMA Studio

Tetris House is derived from the transformation of very pragmatic parameters into a spatially engaging concept. Multiple programmatic demands (five self-contained units, parking spaces and other covered exterior areas) have initiated two volumes. L-shaped in plan and section, they are spatially interwoven to produce a range of dynamic interstitial spaces.

Zilker Residences in Austin, Texas by Clark Rrichardson Architects

Friday, August 19th, 2016

Article source: Clark Rrichardson Architects

This contemporary architectural design, located just blocks from the Barton Springs Pool and the Umlauf Sculpture Garden, features two residences in the heart of Austin’s Zilker Neighborhood. Both units open out to private landscaped interior courtyards as well as second floor balconies with views to downtown. The exterior material palette consists of a vertical standing seam siding contrasted against a white washed, vertical cypress tongue and groove siding.  The rear unit is the builder / developer, Tim Mccabe’s own residence featuring prints from noted photographer David Hume Kennerly and sculpture from his travels in Asia as the development manager for the Pero Family in Dallas.  Tim’s brings his sensibilities from living in Dallas in cannonical modern urban residences by the likes Bud Oblesby and Frank Welch of the O’Neil Ford School here to Austin’s own growing modern tradition.  The building as a whole is a focused on elegant, urban living through a simple edited material palette, amazing framed views to the Zilker’s mature tree canopy and ample outdoor gathering spaces.

Cottage Restoration in Parma, Italy by Studio Contini

Wednesday, August 17th, 2016

Article source: Studio Contini

This construction is located in Tufi d’Agna, a small settlement in the mountain town of Corniglio, inside of the Tuscan-Emilian Appenine recently recognized by the UNESCO as a MAB (Man and the Biosphere Programme) reserve.

The small building, a farm building once used to shelter the shepherds and animals, was recovered as a refuge where the residential use, considering the remote location and the difficulties to achieve it, is sporadic and linked to the summer period.
