“Their houses are massive but light and not forceful and scholar. They are not humorous but spreading serenity. … We can openly turn to these buildings and we can bite of them as much as we want, our eyes can eat a lot and appetite of our imagination comes as well.”[i]

Waagenturm by Wilk-Salinas Architekten

 
June 5th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Wilk-Salinas Architekten 

The Waagenturm is a tower to control the access and weight of the trucks of the BRB, a Berlin-based company for the disposal and recycling of construction materials. In order to reduce the dimensions of the construction the stairs were planned as an exterior area, which covers in the ground floor almost the same space as the closed areas. It is attached to one of the narrow sides of the tower, which is supported by a single central pillar in order to avoid pillars on the corners. The three rooms are distributed in three levels and open to the outer spaces by means of big windows along the façade which also cover the corners. In the first level is the control room, the second level is the director’s office, and in the lower ground floor are the toilets, showers and storerooms. The materials used are the recycled concrete produced by the company, corten steel for the stairs and black profiles for the windows.

Sunflower House in Girona, Spain by Cadaval & Solà-Morales

 
June 5th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Cadaval & Solà-Morales

The Sunflower house sits on a privileged condition of limit; in the border within the water of the Mediterranean sea and the hard rock of the Costa Brava, between the wild nature of Cabo de Creus and the urban settlement of El Port de la Selva, a small fisherman village in the border of France and Spain. A place where the Pyrenees get into the water, generating an exceptional wildlife richness, both in the coast and in the water. The house wants to identify each of the particularities of this magnificent landscape; with its geometry, the house frames a multiplicity of different and specific views, and builds up content spaces that inhabit great big framed views.
