Article source: RAM Arkitektur AS

Espedalen is a valley situated in inland Norway to the east of Jotumheimen national park. The valley is home to the largest moose migration route in Europe. RAM Arkitektur was initially approached by the local community to suggest five architectural interventions in the region, with the aim of boosting tourism within the area. Momentum quickly built around and early sketch for a moose-viewing tower, with basic overnight accommodation for six people, located on public forestry land, and in the heart of the migration route.

Is there where fismuler want to be?

A semibasement of 420m2 at Sagasta street in Madrid, with such a small entry that seems to access a cave. An interior without scarcely light, with windows translucent and almost hidden by plaster moldings, with almost no space to move through a maze of hallways, cavities, toilets, two rooms after turning down a few stairs, with a ceiling too low … an almost claustrophobic. But yes, with a very large kitchen and almost ready to use directly by the cooks.

Gibbston Valley House in New Zealand by Team Green Architects

 
October 28th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Team Green Architects

A young family bought a fantastic sunny section in Gibbston Valley and wanted a Passive House. This house was designed utilising all Passive House principles. It achieves a high level of energy efficiency due to its compact form in which the main rooms are orientated to follow the suns path. Air-tightness, balanced heat exchange, high levels of insulation, and thermally broken windows, all help to mean that this house did not require any heating until well into June, when the fire was first lit.

Silent House IV – The ovenbird nest in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Zapata – Jáuregui arquitectos asociados

 
October 28th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Zapata – Jáuregui arquitectos asociados

The Silent Houses have much to say. They are searching for new experiences of living. They are isolated from the world, because they feel somewhat hostile. They are not interested in the context, but sometimes they can look the outside . They are hard and dry, but the inside is neutral, appropriated and unstable. They are home to a hermit life.

The property is located in a residential neighborhood of medium density.

The campus of Université de Pau et du Pays de l’Adour (UPPA), bearing the hallmark of its architect André Grésy, is immersed in wooded grounds and has a strong relationship with its environment. In order to comply with the project developed by the university, to coordinate the different activities, and to upgrade – in terms of quantity and quality – the material means and real estate, the building of the Faculté de Droit, Economie et Gestion – Faculty of Law, Economics & Management – and of the Institut d’Administration des Entreprises – Institute of Business Administration – is reorganized, and an extension of the research centre is created.

The world of research is constantly changing. Therefore the project developed by Patrick Mauger is open-ended.

House Aartrijke in Zedelgem, Belgium by Atelier Tom Vanhee

 
October 28th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Atelier Tom Vanhee

The former farmhouse is situated in an agricultural area east of the village of Aartrijke, Belgium. The typology of the existing building will be used in a contemporary way to enlarge the dwelling. There will be two new volumes with a pitched roof slide against the existing volume. Two chimney shaped skylights will create light and a view on to the first floor. A third chimney will house the air outlet of the heat pump. Old and new collaborate together, but both will remain visible. The new volumes will be finished in wood. The old brick exterior will be felt inside when entering the house. The new stairs will be a reminder of the old mouldering stair that was removed. The buttresses and strips of brick in the floor show the former layout of the barn. The double height in the dwelling will make the living areas more spacious. A new preweathered zinc roof will connect the buildings into a whole. In addition to the replacement of the old joinery with new windows, the old volume will open up to the landscape on the rear side. The construction will be characterized by simple uniform windows according to the golden ratio.

The Forest House in Valencia, Spain by Ramon Esteve Estudio

 
October 28th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Ramon Esteve Estudio

The House in the Forest is settled in an extensive residential area. A large pine forest on the plot itself is the closest surroundings of the house.

On the basis of four stone walls, we generate prismatic volumes that fragment the space, identifying each room. The interstitial area between the parts is covered by an element of wood, which acts as a distributor and connector between the spaces of the house.
