Observation house in Bulgaria by I/O architects

 
November 6th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: I/O architects

The house is located on a hill in the highest corner of a village amid an agricultural area in Northeast Bulgaria.

The site of the project is distinguished both by its panoramic views and distant visibility. In order to strengthen them, a part of the program is located in the seemingly blind bastion-like volume and the living area is elevated high on it. This brings view completion up to 360 degree and privacy in the fully opened space above. The pitched roof connects geometrically the upper volume with the base and adds complexity in the interior space while the oversized eaves connect it to the little meadow around and exaggerate the hovering effect of the slim metal structure. The proportion and the materiality of the solid base give it the appearance of an infrastructural object that define the edge of the village and conceal the ambitious program of the house. The only perforation leads to the cave like space of the entrance hall / garage. The materiality of the interior spaces is dominated by local species wood cladding, which balances the roughness of the entire structure and its surroundings.

Bal House in Menlo Park, California by Terry & Terry Architecture

 
November 4th, 2015 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: v2com

This project consists of a single-story addition and renovation to an existing mid-century ranch house in Menlo Park, California.

Conceived for a retired couple, the open and accessible design integrates the living space with the rear garden to create a well-lit domestic extension. Comprised of two floating volumes, the addition formally designates the bedroom to the west and the main (common) space to the east. The two wings gradually diverge from the original structure to generate a glass-clad fissure in between. This void space pulls the garden inwards, injecting elements of the outdoors into the core of the house.

Sant Miquel Special Education School in Sant Feliu de Llobregat, Spain by Pepe Gascón Arquitectura

Apart from its mere built container, a school is nothing more than a place where teaching and learning take place. This project, therefore, reflects the desire to interact with the city, revealing the flows and activities that occur within the immediate environment of the site.
