Ocean Eye-A Terrace House in Puntarenas, Costa Rica by Benjamin Garcia Saxe Architecture

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

Article source: Benjamin Garcia Saxe Architecture

The Holdener family bought a beautiful property with two breath-taking views: towards the ocean and into the jungle. We decided to rest the house against the back of the steep hill of the site in order to stabilize the soil and protect the house from falling debris. The house then transitions from a more solid and intimate construction at the back that holds bedrooms and bathrooms, towards a light-weight and ephemeral structure that points to the visual collapse of the ocean and jungle views. The result is a series of interwoven terraces that relate to each other in all dimensions creating not only an internal dynamic interaction between levels, but also varied and sometimes unexpected relationships between the inhabitants and the natural landscape. In these interstitial terrace spaces, which are never truly inside or out, architecture comes to foster the relationship, enjoyment, and appreciation of the natural world by the inhabitants.

A Gallery in Tokyo, Japan by Rei Mitsui Architects

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

Article source: Rei Mitsui Architects

It’s located in an alley close to “Cat Street” near Shibuya, Harajyuku and Omotesando.

The original exterior design was not so bad as the one of 45 years ago. Presumably it was designed by an competent architect. So, as for the exterior, we intended not to change a lot and to show the original design purely.  Actually, we only removed balconies and replaced  two sliding windows with fixed large windows.

Tecnomec Workshop House in São Paulo, Brazil by PAX.ARQ

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

Article source: PAX.ARQ

As a result of a particular programmatic condition, the workshop-house project was conceived to host a residence, a high-performance mechanical workshop and classrooms in a 260m² terrain located in the Pinheiros neighborhood, São Paulo.

The programmatic activities were distributed in a specific way so it was possible to take the greatest advantage from the functional and legal point of view. The result is a separation of the program in three levels: ground-floor, which hosts the mechanical workshop activities, revisions, repairs, part-washing and a dynamometer room for vehicle testing; first floor, where the classrooms, study rooms and bathrooms are located; and second floor, place for the residence.

The Manna House in Glassell Park, California by Jeremy Levine Design

Sunday, September 4th, 2016

Article source: Jeremy Levine Design

The Manna House is for a client who has unusual obsession with color. My initial concept was to use a camouflage palette to blend the house into the hillside. My client wanted the anti-camouflage house. The house takes its inspiration from the abstract color field paintings of Kenneth Noland and Josef Albers. Various shades of blue connect the house -sited on the ridge of a hill- to the the sky that serve as its backdrop. Blue is also a reference to how the house “sails” along the top of the hill like a ship.

Fratelli Social Club in Bucharest, Romania by Twins Studio

Saturday, September 3rd, 2016

Article source: Twins Studio

Fratelli Social Club is a well-known place to Bucharest residents. In 2015 a change of ambiance was needed. By generating the new design, Mihai Popescu wanted to transform an 8-year old space into a new dimension, without changing its structure. The place consists of a web of lines that compose an approximate sphere whose geometry has been modified, generating an “altered” geodesic dome.
