DIGITAL MUSEUM in Pecica, Arad County, Romania by Claudiu IONESCU

Thursday, January 9th, 2014

Article source: Claudiu IONESCU

“Inspired by Constantin BRANCUSI’s „Miracle” sculpture, the building rises naturally from the ground through golden spirals (the Fibonacci spirals) and crystallizes in a shape that, just like its muse, tries to set itself free from „the past burdens”, striving to rise high. Its shape offers the visitor a feeling of aspiration, an aspiration not only of the building, but of life itself.” – Claudiu IONESCU – architect

Article source: HERNÁNDEZ SILVA ARQUITECTOS

The house is located in a conventional land inside a gated community, west of Guadalajara’s metropolitan area. Is has a north orientation towards the street and south on the back, leaving a free area on the side facing west.

The project begins at the idea of making a house with the minimum ofwalls to feel it completely transparent and openfrom the entry. We decided to make a big hole inside that takes back the old spanish patio, being the protagonist of the residence.

Stacey-Turley Residence in Ottawa, Canada by Kariouk Associates

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

Article source: Kariouk Associates

The requirements for this project called for the design of a small home that would respond to the evolving life needs of a young couple, with two small boys, who intend to live their lives here for the next half century.  A significant spatial challenge from the start of the project was that the maximum allowable width of the house could only be twenty-four feet, hence the house would necessarily need to be long; because windows on the long sides of the home were greatly restricted by zoning regulations, there was an immediate design challenge to bring light into the long interior volume that otherwise would be dark.

BUSTAMENTE HOUSE in Valparaíso Region, Chile by PAR Arquitectos

Saturday, January 4th, 2014

Article source: PAR Arquitectos

The commission was to develop a house under the standards of the real estate business, a basic and optimized program complemented to a strategy of exterior terraces and main rooms open to panoramic views.

Considering the terraced, square site with an average slope, with “moments” with an ocean view, we decided to set back the house to the back of the site, constituting a broad and long facade, taking the highest point of the site and a more panoramic view of the environment.

Coral Gables Residence in Miami, Florida by Touzet Studio

Friday, January 3rd, 2014

Article source: Touzet Studio

The “City-side” façade presents itself as two restrained stone-clad volumes – a “mask” clad in material very much identified with the architecture of Coral Gables. The lower volume is rough-hewn Florida Keystone and the larger, main volume is clad in honed limestone. The mask is penetrated by only two openings on the western façade and a “frieze” of windows above. Very little of the house is visible from the street – even the thrust of the sculptural roof is hidden from view.
