Wine Hotel Quinta Do Vallado in Peso Da Régua, Portugal by Guedes + de Campos

Friday, August 10th, 2012

Article source: Francisco Vieira de Campos

Jean Baudrillard defines architecture as “a mixture of nostalgia and extreme anticipation”. This idea comes along like a murmur in all the proposals, especially heritage projects. Each project always represents a renewed commitment to capture what is unique and non-transferable in each architectural episode.

Vista Del Valle in Sonoma,CA by Sean Bailey

Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

Vista Del Valle is a 4,400 square feet house in the Sonoma hills that articulates modern forms, site informed design, and soft clean materials. The project is on a steep site with a view out over the valley, with distant views of Mt. Diablo and East Bay. Its multi-axis plan and gently sloped shed roofs create informal active spaces that look modern in form and yet remain soft with light finely-textured stucco and warm clear-grain horizontal cedar siding.

Seacliff House in Sydney, Australia by Chris Elliott Architects

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

A house for a family of four.

Everyday life occurs on a platform overlooking the sea. Beneath this the rock is carved out to form a grotto. Above the platform is a protective cocoon for sleeping. Astride all this at roof level sits a belvedere accessible only via a narrow curved stair, as in a Martello tower.
