SOROCABA HOUSE in Sao Paulo, Brazil by Estudio BRA Arquitetura

 
August 8th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Estudio BRA Arquitetura

Located in a residential neighborhood in Sorocaba City, 80km from Sao Paulo, Brazil, the horizon has been marked by the shape of this contemporary house.

Composed of two overlapping volumes, the house derives from the intention to release the largest possible area for living spaces and provide fluidity between the spaces. The upper volume was designed bigger than the lower one, because of that half of the house seems to float on the ground and provides shadow and a relaxing space on the yard.

Beast in Austin, USA by Specht Harpman

Article source: Specht Harpman

This project involved the renovation and adaptive re-use of an existing single-story brick building in downtown Austin.  The structure, built in the 1920’s, housed a wide variety of tenancies through the years, from a mom-and pop grocery store to leasing offices for new downtown condominiums.  The current owner, a creative company involved with film production, was on an extremely limited budget, and wanted to re-use as much of what existed as possible while making something that was uniquely “Austin” in character.

The building of the former stables is part of the farming complex founded  around 1870. Size and location of the building is the key to the layout of the whole farm. Along with similarly large barn on the southern edge of the property it defines large yard area and establishes the complex scale, which is larger compared to the surrounding residential development.
