Refurbishment of a country house in Barcelona, Spain by ARQUITECTURA-G

 
April 16th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: ARQUITECTURA-G 

The land where we intervene is a flat and elongated plot of 7.000m2 in the outskirts of Santa Margarida de Montbui. The plot initially had a building for agricultural use in a state of ruin that we were asked to transform into a single-family housing. The building regulations, according to which the pre-existing construction was considered as a farmhouse despite of being just a hut with fibrocement rooftop, didn´t allow any modification in terms of volumetrics and façade openings.

Cut out_haus h in Oberbozen (BZ), Italy by bergmeisterwolf architekten

 
April 16th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: bergmeisterwolf architekten

house h, along with the family-owned park hotel, is part of something greater, and yet an intimate haven – living in and with the surroundings. a simply formed monolith is placed on an incline. and yet, the house blends in with the terrain, optically leading to a ledge in the terrain. clear design vocabulary focused on reduction, and coarse, earthy grains in the concrete characterize the surface of the house. it is interrupted by terraces and loggias offset to the inside, seemingly dismissing the nearby train track. everything is scaled back a bit, be it the architecture or the materials used. the house is located at the very end of a park landscape. the idea was to find joining elements in the private residence and the hotel, to find coherence, in order to achieve a continuation in content and history.

Casa en Los Molles in fith region, Chile by Thomas Löwenstein arquitecto

Article source: Thomas Löwenstein arquitecto

The Project arises from the combination between levels and sights, which on the one hand, proposes relations of spacial interior continuity and on the other, it relates this interior with the horizons.

In the first floor, the main topographic levels were redefined as well as the natural paths that existed in the natural terrain to preserve the sensation of moving in the slope. This condition in addition with the size and orientation of the spans constantly frame new horizons of the beach and valley.

Article source: Studio Gang Architects

Outré House in New Delhi, India by Anagram Architects

 
April 14th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Anagram Architects

Large urban residences both register and articulate financial and aspirational value. Catering as much to their inhabitants’ needs as to their whims, they are, at once, spaces of private indulgence as also objects of a more socially motivated aesthetic expression. Therefore, the luxurious and the exotic are sought in various ways from their design. In big cities, global market systems drive construction, fabrication and procurement logistics, and so, the extrinsic, or exotic, in terms of materiality and the machined, in terms of texture and precision, are more sought after and given greater value. Systems of architectural production also appear to have cleaved apart the relationships between making and material while form seems to rely heavily on geometries that ease the application of industrially mass produced and pre-engineered surface renders. Ironically, the search for the unusual in contemporary urban architecture seems akin to a walk in a “walled garden” of ubiquitous aesthetics.
