Article source: Topiaris Arquitectura

The garden is located on the southwest coast of Portugal, in Herdade da Comporta, Alentejo, which is an outstanding and diverse landscape mosaic with high ecological and cultural value. It is worth mentioning the dune system with psammophilous pioneer vegetation, as well as maritime and umbrella pine woods. This mosaic is complemented by agricultural areas in the lower alluvial soils with large ranges of rice fields. The plot area is 3000m2, and the morphology of the land is very smooth and low sloped.

Article source: Gianluca Milesi Architecture

This is a project for a single house-villa placed in a natural imaginary environment. The aim of the design is to create an intimate space strongly communicating with the external environment at the same time. This communication and particular relationship is established through the creation of cracks in a simple box volume that break the enclosure of the interior space and open, visually and physically to the outside.

Article source: EOP Architects

A unique client’s vision and openness to abstract symbolism provided EOP Architects the opportunity to transform a long vacant and neglected retail mall into an energized campus with a newfound purpose. Southland Christian Church in Lexington, Kentucky, requested a contemporary, iconic design that would be welcoming, inspirational and transformational but devoid of any traditional references to Christianity: there are no conventional steeples, crosses, or stained glass windows. However, the design response includes a number of abstract interpretations with references to these elements.

5.6 House in Sarzeau, France by Avignon-Clouet Architectes

Saturday, March 2nd, 2013

Article source: Avignon-Clouet Architectes

Situated on the west coast (Morbihan), this resort house crouches in its own field as if to protect itself from the sea’s spray. Entirely made of concrete and granite, its mineral appearance welcomes with sensitivity, the shadows due to light changes. Perforated by many patios, the house integrates some framing on of the capricious sky of the west coast. The long sunshades remind the sand fences guiding walkers along the coast paths.

St Alfred’s Church in Victoria, Australia by Studio B Architects

Saturday, March 2nd, 2013

Article source: Studio B Architects

Concepts of sustainable design are often given media attention though startling innovations and avant-garde design. However, it is those projects that at first not recognized, but though the ’test of time’ prove themselves to be innovative and appealing to work and visit are worthy of discussion.

The St Alfred’s Church complex is one such project. Located in the leafy Melbourne suburb of North Blackburn the building is a composite of tested ideas combined about welcoming planning and design. This church and educational building is an expansion of an earlier small building that had occupied the site for the past forty-five years.

Dental Clinic in Oporto, Portugal by Paulo Merlini

Saturday, March 2nd, 2013

Article source: Paulo Merlini

The uncommon form, narrowness, vertical amplitude of the space and the two big glass façades placed on the main and back façade defined mainly the organization of the spaces. The reception and waiting room it’s characterized by a big white box that floats in the air playing with the vertical amplitude of the space. The interior of the box mimetizes the idea of being under a roof, giving the user a familiar sensation of comfort, and helping I’m to calm down before the treatment.  From the “roof” a series of lamps float in the air, filling the space with light.

Article source: Cyrille Druart

In 2012, Thomas Dupré, succeeding from a long line of French opticians, decided to create his optical shop in Grenoble, France, and called on designer Cyrille Druart to come up with an original concept. “Our intent was to start with a clean slate, rethink the very idea of an optical shop that might seem too moulded and constantly more of the same. We had to figure out how to offer a new experience.
