Location and Context
The intervention site is located in a specific urban context. The surrounding area is characterized by distinct structures in terms of volumetry, typology and morphology. To the west, in a lower level, we can find consolidated urban structures with panoramic sea views. The remaining area is composed by two-story single-family homes, built in the twentieth century, featuring outdoor spaces and gardens that border directly with the school precinct.

Casa AV Summer House in Mar Azul, Argentina by BAK Architectos

 
January 11th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: BAK Architectos

This work is the result of a process that began in 2004 with the construction of a summer house in the forest of Mar Azul.

It was about intervening in an area of outstanding natural beauty, owner of a wild strong presence that gradually has been domesticated by the proliferation of constructions with a formal search between a bucolic character and picturesqueness which in no way refer to that environment nor to this present.

Facing the cathedral and following the outline of the former convent’s kitchen garden, we erect a strong stone wall box open to the sky. Its walls and floors entirely made of stone. The very same stone as the Cathedral. A real Hortus Conclusus. In the corner facing the cathedral, a massive stone measuring 250x150x50 cm, a veritable Cornerstone. And chiselled on that stone:

Affordable Housing For Young Families in Tuscany, Italy By Studiostudio Architettiurbanisti

Article source: Studiostudio Architettiurbanisti

The design of the settlement layout is based on the recognition of landform. The project re-proposes latent settlement rules, yet consolidated, able to recover the structuring capacity of the layout and its landscape value.

Six buildings of 60 m long are arranged in the lot according to a north-south orientation with slightly changes in direction. A wall of dry stone delimits the project on the west side and marks the boundary between the industrial area and the new residential compound on the edge of the Tavola old village.

Low Energy Bamboo House in Rotselaar, Belgium by AST 77 Architecten

Article source: AST 77 Architecten

The narrow sloping and afforested site, south faced towards the Beukenlaan, is not that typical Flanders plot. In the past the neighbourhood seems to have been a residential recreation zone, where Belgians used to build their individual summer houses. When asked to build a new spacious residence on this particular site, AST77 was confronted with a bungalow and extension.

C&E House in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain by Equipo Olivares Architects

 
January 11th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Equipo Olivares Architects

The house is designed taking into account the following aspects:

Adaptation of the volume to both dividing walls. Regulations allow three floors, so the house is higher than others around. That is why the top floor is setback (allowing the sunlight to come into the house through a fanlight) and we decided the height of the building, adapting it to the house on the left, while the dividing wall on the right is a continuation of the façade to respond to the smaller height of the house on the right.

Techshed in Foster City, CA by Garcia Tamjidi Architecture Design

Article source: Garcia Tamjidi Architecture Design

A home improvement marketplace technology company, this open and collaborative work environment was designed with a balance of open office work benches, and spaces for meetings, meditation, play and private phone calls. A gated area with lockers for personal storage encourages bicycle commuting and use of the Bay Trail along the edge of the San Francisco Bay. Techshed’s brand is expressed with an impactful punch of brand color and in the form of the plywood sheds that house meeting and meditation rooms. An open Café with a robust audio visual system doubles as an all hands meeting and presentation space.
