MA House in Morelos, México by Cadaval & Sola-Morales

 
February 24th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Cadaval & Sola-Morales

The commission of the house comes together with the explicit petition to use stone as the main construction material. The decision doesn’t respond necessarily to esthetic reasons but more likely to its common existence in the place, its little need for maintenance and its low cost for built square meter. Such premises are taken as a project challenge both in a structural, typological and esthetic way.

Beginning

After living in his own aluminium manufacturing factory in a congestion of Surat Thani, the client searched for a spacious and nature-surrounded location for his vacation house. The result was the 167-meter-long and 75 meters-wide site surrounded by beautiful Palmyra palms, at the meander of the longest river in southern Thailand – Tapi River. That was the beginning of Baan Nai Bang project.

Memory House in Lima, Perú by Chetecortes Architects

 
February 24th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Chetecortes Architects

When I say Beach, we can quickly see the blue of the sea under a clear sky, next to the warm sand, bathed in an intense yellow light that illuminates the day. The relaxing sound of the waves begins to whisper our ears, while our body begins to perceive a refreshing temperature, the wind passing.

We create the house, understanding first the reaction of the people to the previous text.

Royal Collections Museum in Madrid, Spain by Emilio Tuñón Architects, Mansilla+Tuñón Architects

 
February 24th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Emilio Tuñón Architects

We try to produce a building that is invisible from La Almudena Square by occupying a buried space that is yet to exist. The Royal Collection Museum contains the plinth of the Royal Palace, constructing a linear space that follows the lines of the Palace itself. A simple, compact building, a construction that is aware that maximum flexibility and potential is only possible within a strict order, which uses the materials of the Royal Palace and its dignified construction as a feature, with a modern layout, heavy yet light, opaque yet transparent.

Today the Astro Tower in Brussels (Belgium) is presented, which after its renovationled by Estudio Lamela and its Belgianpartners Altiplan Architects—becomes Europe’s tallest green building in terms of energy consumption and savings. The project represents the profoundrefurbishment of an icon of the city to respond to the requirements of sustainability required by a 21st century city. At the same time, it renews the skyline of the city. “When we won the contest in 2010, we opted forcompletely rehabilitating the building from the original structure and preserving its essence. To do this, we replaced the facades with others that provide more luminosity and, more importantly, we gained the energy control of the tower, affirms Carlos Lamela, director of Estudio Lamela.

The new Atrio Relais-Châteaux, located at San Mateo Square in Caceres, tries to think the city departing from the principles that made it possible in the first place. It tries to imagine how such thing can be carried out in our time, enabling contemporary architecture to stand side by side the historic core, with respect and dignity.
