Mirador Building in Madrid, Spain by MVRDV

 
June 29th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: MVRDV

Sanchinarro is a residential suburb on the north east edge of Madrid. Surrounded by highways, with views towards the Guadarrama Mountains.

The building was developed as a reference point for the city extension and region at large, as a counterpoint against the massive uniformity of the surrounding blocks. The 22 level building acts as a frame for the distant landscape. The large lookout at 40 metres above the ground provides inhabitants and neighbours with a commu­nity garden and a space from where they can contemplate the skyline. The proposal opens domestic architecture to the new city environment and to its surrounding territories.

Article source: DCPP Architects

Cerrada Reforma 108 is a residential project located in San Angel, in the south of Mexico City. The plot is rectangular and its dimensions are 10 x 20 meters.

The concept of the house parted from the idea of positive and negative space, seeking to create a game of counterparts to define and virtually contain the exterior space.

Cassion Castle Architects were commissioned to design this multi-purpose structure next to a former farmhouse in Hampshire. The client, product designer Tom Lloyd, wanted a timber building that could fulfill a series of basic functions as a studio, workshop, garage or storeroom. More importantly, he saw an opportunity to combine architecture and timber craftsmanship to create a simple yet beautiful building that would enhance its setting and complement his home. Tom commissioned Cassion Castle Architects in October 2011 and was closely involved in all aspects of the design.

SAI Project in Gangnam-gu, Seoul, Korea by Moon Hoon

 
June 29th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Moon Hoon

It was a unique case; in the construction of a new building next to the client had made many illicit choices, causing the district government to intervene and to suggest a radically altered space. In between the existing building site and the newly built building, I built a structure that could be used as a green house.

The Underground Extension of the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis in Hague, Netherlands by HANS VAN HEESWIJK ARCHITECTS

THE HAGUE: On June 28th, after a construction period of just two years, the new Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis in The Hague opens its doors to the public for the first time. The surface area of the famous Mauritshuis museum has been doubled – although there is hardly any indication of this fact above ground, thanks to a complex and spectacular feat of engineering which was completed on schedule and within budget. The dramatic yet subtle intervention has solved the logistical problems facing the constantly busy, much-visited museum, while also resulting in a bright and welcoming entrance space characterised by an ingenious and striking use of daylight. The renovation of the existing Mauritshuis was also a part of this project.

Stud Horse Mountain in Washington by Balance Associates, Architects

 
June 29th, 2014 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Balance Associates, Architects

This 3,500 square foot home is located at the end of a ridge overlooking the Methow Valley in Northeast Washington State.

The house is arranged around a courtyard to provide a sheltered area from the exposed location on the ridge. It is separated into four parts, each orientated to different views and solar exposure. A large screen porch forms a connection between the living and sleeping wings to provide an insect free outdoor dining and living space. The shed roofs with cathedral ceilings slope with the contours of the hill to reduce the overall scale and impact to the structure as it is viewed from the valley floor below.
