Quinta Do Vallado Winery in Peso da Régua, Portugal by Francisco Vieira de Campos

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Article source: Francisco Vieira de Campos

In a landscape as unique and astonishing as Douro, any intervention must be very precise. That’s why the first challenge was to underline the distinctive identity of the project while carefully respecting the landscape. Each gesture had to be incisive, adapting itself to the given programme while conquering an expressiveness that could value both the built complex and the surrounding landscape. The expansion project for Quinta do Vallado included two areas of intervention – production and leisure – and a supplemental challenge: to maintain and to integrate the per-existing buildings in a new complex with a clearly contemporary vocabulary. The unification of all these purposes needed great technical precision and resulted in great simplicity, both in the use of material and in the creation of forms. This assured minimal impact to the landscape but the same economy of means was used to create very seductive spaces. Seduction of the visitor was always part of the game.

Administrative headquarters of the ‘Groupe e’ in Fribourg, Switzerland by IPAS Architectes SA

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Article source: IPAS Architectes SA

The ‘Groupe e’ poster goals against the current, luckily, he asked the architects to imagine living spaces always becoming, places that re-qualify the individual and collective work: communication, transparency, fun at work, exchange , adaptation. Intentions infinitely precious, simple as water that nourishes life and a contemporary design because it goes against the trends of our time. On the site there – in touch – the campaign and its houses clustered, rural – on the edge – the village of Granges-Paccot and scattered houses – finally – a direct communication with the city of Fribourg.

HDM House in Lisbon, Portugal by Sara Antunes Mário Ferreira Arquitectos (designed using AutoCAD and Revit)

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Article source: Sara Antunes Mário Ferreira Arquitectos

This house is located in a privileged area of Lisbon, at the southern end of a row of houses. This neighbourhood, built in the 1950’s by the state as social housing, in a “nationalistic” style, has a homogenous character, with the repetition of a type with slight variations, and cohesive public space, which promotes a strong sense of community that, is so hard to find in the more fragmented contemporary city.

Office Building E in Prague, Czech Republic by Aulík Fišer Architects

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Article source: Aulík Fišer Architects

The office building E is the very last piece of development completing the northern part of the BB Center complex along Vyskocilova (street) and a ramp to 5.května (street). So, towards the city centre the bldg. E closes the planned “protection shield” against the negative impact of city highway traffic on residential houses planned for the second phase of development. This part of the Prague-Michle district has now been revitalized, reintroducing the urban environment with multiple functions and restoring it the way it was before the highway – 5.května street – completely destroyed it.
