The Building’s full-fledged relationship with natural light is exquisitely balanced with privacy; The roadside windows let daylight illuminate the living room and the second floor bedrooms, but their positioning makes it impossible for an outsider to grasp interior activities.

The Cave in Jalisco, México by Abraham Cota Paredes Arquitectos

 
August 2nd, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Abraham Cota Paredes Arquitectos

The best way to get to know an architect is to know their projects, they speak for us, unmask us when the work is honest, they exist as a mirror of who we are. There is something behind the cave that speaks of who I am, that form of an enclosed cube that seeks to be hidden from the world, while showing openings that exhibit a contradiction, perhaps I do not want to remain apart from the world, as a proof these narrow cracks show a characteristic from mankind, The longing of being known and loved.

The project regards the expansion and the renovation of a farm in the Sicilian hillside, on the slopes of Volcano Etna. The design effort aimed to respect the existing architecture and at the same time to search for a global image. Several features of the local tradition come into play, creating many points of contact between old and new: simple forms and few materials interact with the historical context.

APARAT Headquarters in Tehran, Iran by QASTIC LAB

Conceptual Gap

The idea of constructing a building within a building is explored by expanding the gap between corridors and offices. Similar to how the coastline connects land and sea, a gap between corridor and office is where Qastic’s design exploration emerged.  By exploring and expanding this gap, the design and construction of bridges, double height voids, planters, and collaborative voids brought dynamic double height effect to Aparat’s space. As a result of the transparency created by the voids, conversations between employees on upper and lower floors happen at a greater efficiency during the work hours. The glass walls provide opportunities for all 75 work stations to take advantage of natural light and circulation across the entire 600 Sqm2 two story space.

Outpost in Idaho by Olson Kundig

 
August 2nd, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Olson Kundig 

Set in the remote, harsh high desert of Idaho, Outpost is an artist’s live/work studio and sculpture garden. The building’s compactness restricts site impact and reinforces the desire to be outside. This is a windy place, and the enclosed “paradise garden,” is separated from the wild landscape by thick masonry walls. The footprint of the house is the limit of intrusion into the land—a simple, clearly defined space. This structure exemplifies Kundig’s belief that the architect’s job is to create an experience of place.
