Hiža-a contemporary interpretation of a traditional zagorje cottage in Kumrovec, Croatia by PROARH

Wednesday, November 18th, 2015

Article source: PROARH

The pre-existing traditional Zagorje cottage is situated on the green slopes near Kumrovec  and was structurally and statically in poor condition. It was renovated taking into consideration the characteristics of local heritage and design. The pre-existing house form is kept, while the porch is substituted with a glass cube. To give the cottage southern exposure, the glass form is slided out of the main house volume, simultaneously forming an entrance area.  Interaction of interior and exterior spaces is enabled by opening of the glass walls. The cottage consists of three floors: the basement, ground floor and 1st floor, which is comprised of the essential living spaces- leisure/dining/cooking on groundfloor and sleeping areas on the 1st floor. Groundfloor spaces are then arranged following a traditional system of organisation that creates a common zone with the ‘hearth’ .

Cinema Ideal in LISBON, Portugal by José Neves

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

Article source: José Neves

Cinema Ideal was the first cinema in Portugal. Located in the heart of Lisbon, between Loreto and Horta Seca streets, it occupies the ground floor of two buildings built in two different epochs – 19th and 20th centuries. Since its inauguration in 1904, the cinema was transformed by multiple interventions, becoming a degraded and architecturally disqualified place, showing exclusively pornographic films during the last three decades.

ONE FAMILY HOUSE IN Cádiz, Spain by alzugaray estudio de arquitectura

Sunday, November 15th, 2015

Article source: alzugaray estudio de arquitectura 

The house is situated on the occidental edge of the natural park of the Estrecho, on an abrupt hillside, where the landscape value, its orientation and complicated topography are determining factors. Instead of viewing these factors as potential limits we considered them to be incentives for a better solution for the project, helping reinforce the intrinsic singularity of the emplacement, to which service is set this construction.
