CEIP RAIGUERO DE BONANZA in ORIHUELA, ALICANTE, SPAIN by MACLA Arquitectos

 
June 15th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: MACLA Arquitectos

The project responds to the surrounding landscape defined by two different topographies: one horizontal plane oriolana garden, where it supports the building, and on the other the ubiquitous mountain in the north facing the delimitation. The volume of the building reflects this duality fragmenting the different volumes that comprise this mechanism to recognize the profile of the mountains to the opening. The building consists of two classrooms of children, four primary classrooms, a gym and a dining room for one hundred students in two shifts, plus all associated teaching spaces.

Shining Surface in Milan, Italy by Park Associati

 
June 15th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Park Associati

Park Associati architects work on ‘human scale’ architecture. Issues such as context, environment, routes, landscapes and views are in their everyday vocabulary. Their buildings relate with the landscapes with such a lightness and harmony to make them looking perfectly in place, as if they had always been there. Yet they are very recognizable signs, they have contemporary concepts, shapes and surfaces, made with advanced techniques and materials. But this is precisely the key: a historical knowledge and a contemporary vision. In Park’s works, we can feel suggestions from the Modern Movement, lessons from certain Milan architectures and condominiums of the Fifties and Sixties, to the purest Mies van der Rohe of the Twenties, up to Antonio da Sangallo and Michelangelo of Palazzo Farnese. All these inspirations are assimilated, forgotten, and re-invented.

102 House in Gliwice, Poland by ZALEWSKI ARCHITECTURE GROUP

 
June 15th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: ZALEWSKI ARCHITECTURE GROUP

Every house should have some secret. This house has more than one. The originality of this home has grown from dreams of its owners. The owners – a pair of 35-year-olds with a limited (but not modest) budget and a cloud of dreams. They are fans … she is keen on  architecture of glass and a person longing for the sun the south and the peace of the night … he is keen on World War II, raw concrete and metal. Opposites attract. They demanded not only a modern house but also a unique emotional experience – a house that would be “their home” – at first sight. It’s a challenge.

Centro de Surf de Somo in Cantabria, Spain by Javier Romero Soto. Architect

 
June 14th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

Article source:  Javier Romero Soto. Architect

The Ribamontán al Mar Surf Center is located in the seafront of Somo, a small town in near Santander. It’s essential for this new facility to be located as close as possible to the beach (it would be unthinkable that surfers have to move to change, shower or store the surfboards to some urban area of the town); therefore, in the absence of municipal property plot with the required characteristics, we chose to place the building on the seafront. The venue lacks environmental value; one of the goals of the project is in fact to recover this underused space, situated just 20 meters away from the sealine.

Tred Avon River House in Easton, Maryland by Robert M.Gurney Architect

 
June 14th, 2013 by Sanjay Gangal

  • Architects: Robert M. Gurney Architect
  • Project: Tred Avon River House
  • Location: Easton, Maryland
  • Project Architect: Brian Tuskey
  • Contractor: Peterson & Collins
  • Interior Designer: (Therese Baron Gurney) Baron Gurney Interiors
  • Landscape Designer : (Lila Fendrick Landscape Architecture) and Garden Design
  • Engineer: (D. Anthony Beale LLC) 8634 Tuttle Road
  • Year: 2012
  • Photographs: Maxwell MacKenzie
  • Completed: Fall 2012

Diverging from several acres of cornfields, a one-quarter mile road lined with pine trees terminates at a diamond-shaped tract of land with breathtaking views of the Tred Avon River. Arising from the gravel drive and hedge-lined parking court, this new house is unveiled as three solid volumes, linked together with glass bridges, suspended above the landscape. The central, 36-foot high volume is mostly devoid of fenestration, punctuated only by the recessed 10-foot high entry door and narrow sidelights. The contrasting 12-foot high western volume contains a garage and additional service space, while the eastern volume, floating above grade, contains the primary living spaces.

After entering the house and passing through one of the glass bridges, the transformation begins. Initially presented as solid and austere, the house unfolds into a 124-foot long living volume, light-filled and wrapped in glass with panoramic views of the river. A grid of steel columns modulates the space. Covered terraces extend the interior spaces, providing an abundance of outdoor living space with varying exposures and views. A screened porch provides an additional forum to experience views of the river, overlooking a swimming pool, located on axis to the main seating group.

Along with a geothermal mechanical system, solar tubes, hydronic floor heating and a concrete floor slab to provide thermal mass, large overhangs above the terraces prevent heat gain and minimize dependence on fossil fuel. The entire house is elevated four feet above grade to protect against anticipated future flooding.

The house is crisply detailed and minimally furnished to allow views of the picturesque site to provide the primary sensory experience. The house was designed as a vehicle to experience and enjoy the incredibly beautiful landscape, known as Diamond Point, seamlessly blending the river’s expansive vista with the space.
