House in Ávila, Spain by Claudia Olalla Gil

 
January 14th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Claudia Olalla Gil

Located at a high altitude (1200 meters above sea level), Las Navas del Marqués is characterized by cold winters and mild summers, which determine a low annual average temperature (10 ° C).

Taking advantage of the views of the valley of San Miguel coincident with the best orientation (south west), the house opens into the views and closes as much as possible to the north, avoiding energy losses.

Rebuild by Design, an initiative of the Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force and HUD, is aimed at addressing structural and environmental vulnerabilities that Hurricane Sandy exposed in communities throughout the region and developing fundable solutions to better protect residents from future climate events. We propose a protective system around Manhattan from West 54th street south to The Battery and up to East 40th street: 10 continuous miles of low-lying geography that comprise an incredibly dense, vibrant, and vulnerable urban area.

SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION SOUTH CAMPUS MASTER PLAN in Washington, D.C by BIG

 
January 14th, 2015 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: BIG

Working closely with the Smithsonian, we conceived a master plan for the South Mall Campus as an example of radical reinterpretation. To resolve the contradictions between old and new, and to find freedom within the boundaries of strict regulation and historical preservation, we chose to carefully reinterpret the elements that are already present in the campus. The proposed master plan will be implemented over a 10-to-20–year period beginning in 2016.

SOMMARHUS AKENINE in Trelleborg, Sweden by Johan Sundberg

 
January 14th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Johan Sundberg

Johan Sundberg Arkitektur’s latest work is an ample, yet succinct summerhouse on Sweden’s southernmost coast. Positioned with care in the forest by the popular Beddinge Strand, the plot is situated on an embankment that formerly demarcated the coast, but has since been engulfed by the surrounding woods. The area’s languid and balmy summers are counterbalanced in winter by brisk sea winds and salty air. The building opens to the Baltic Sea in the south, while the northern side faces the forest.

Article source: Paula Martins Arquitetura, Interiores e Detalhamento

This project was conceived for a client who is a big fan of woodwork,so each element was designed and handcrafted specifically and exclusively for this very unique apartment. The central element of the living room is the pannel that holds a TV that can face either the living room or the dining room. The concept adopted reflects a contemporary style and despite of all the covered walls, the result gives you a sense of well-being.
