Resort & Winery BORGO BACCILE in Crecchio, Italy by Rocco Valentini

 
August 20th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Rocco Valentini

Restoration and reuse of a tiny rural hamlet immersed in the Abruzzo countryside, in an advanced state of degradation, to transform it into a receptive structure, able to convey to the guests the emotions and sensations of the pre-industrial campaign life. Buildings have been made functional with the addition of contemporary structures. The small Borgo Baccile, dating from a few houses dating back to the mid-‘800, is located just a short distance from the historic center of Crecchio. The buildings, following the post-war social transformations, had been abandoned. Some of them, such as House B, had structural and empty breakdowns due to collapse. The design choice was to leave the original mummified structures, making them anti-seismic with steel injections and steel rims, and add functional elements with contemporary shapes, materials and colors in harmony with the sandstone of existing buildings.

Modern Lodge in Weatherby Lake, Missouri by Kemstudio

 
August 18th, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Kemstudio

The owners work in the urban core but want to truly wind down when they head home and casually entertain friends. They purchased a waterfront lot on Weatherby Lake, MO, USA with the vision of creating a “Modern Lodge”. The concept draws from the owner’s passion as a commercial photographer and the process of capturing an experience with a still photo. The house is two simple platonic forms, one resting on the other, pulled apart to create an aperture to the lake. The view is revealed once you enter the house, leaving the city behind and immersing yourself in lake living.

Apartment Building On The Zurichberg in Zurich Witikon, Switzerland by Jan Henrik Hansen

 
August 18th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Jan Henrik Hansen

The site possesses an impressive view over Zurich, the lake and the mountains due to its location on the Zürichberg. The building geometry was developed as a result of maximization of space within the legal framework. In order to let the surfaces of the volume respond to light and environment through their inclination angle, a sculptural relief in anodized aluminum was developed for roof and facade, which gives the building a natural appearance, despite its materiality.

Can Xomeu Rita is a small dwelling that takes the name of the traditional place name of the interior of the island of Formentera where it is located. Its location in the territory responds to a space free of vegetation close to the field of wheat and oats existing in the plot, where the alignment with the existing dry stone walls coincides with the good orientation towards the South as well as with an area adequate to recover the rain water in a cistern.
