In the concept for this small house in the vicinity of Aldeia de Juso, the tiniest area of flat land and the house’ s, as well as the high density of the new houses yet to be built in the surroundings, forcibly draw us to some sort of “obsession” about the possibilities of dilating space.

Awarded AIA Peconic  Jurors Award for Architecture 2009
Platinum rating in the LEED for Homes program 2011

Responding to a long skinny lot (50 ft wide x 166 ft deep) in a village, this project explores the openness between inside/outside spaces using a linear format.  A diagonal wall running from the southwest to the northeast divides the site into “dwelling” and “garden” zones.  The interior space uses the widest possible width at the western end.  The larger, backyard garden is on the eastern end.

Ewan Cameron Architects have completed a new Guest Pavilion in the Kentish Weald near the village of Horsmonden.

The brief was to design a guest pavilion, comprising of 2 bedroom suites, that would sit adjacent to an Italianate orangery from 1860, on the grounds of Capel Manor House, an iconic modernist pavilion completed by Michael Manser in 1971. Both the main house and the new pavilion are spectacularly sited upon the raised, arcaded podium of a ruined Italianate mansion on a leafy estate that was the once the home of Jane Austen’s fore-bears.

Arts centre in La Coruña, Spain by aceboXalonso Studio

(In the begginnig, this project’s name was Arts Centre, but nowadays it’s called MUNCYT. In fact, it became the National Museum of Science and Technology.)

This Project is the first price of an international competition to build combination of two different briefs, a Dance School and a Museum. We proposed to develop them in a single volume. This allowed us to explore the relationship between two structures that  were different in every aspect: organization, perception, expression, function and construction. Using both factors, we had the chance to add, sustract, divide, but we chose to multiply. The strange concrete form contains the school while the outer surface, the space between the form and the limit, contains the museum.

Great Pier of the Great Lakes

Chicago is known for its penchant to “make no little plans” as Daniel Burnham memorably pronounced over a century ago.  And so today, Chicago’s most popular attraction, Navy Pier is revisiting Burnham’s legacy as it reimagines its potential as a world class cultural destination.  To help realize Navy Pier’s ambitious design goals, a team led by !melk, UrbanLab and HOK has proposed a series of dramatic ideas to reconceptualize Chicago’s preeminent exclamation point extending from the Great Lakes to the world.
