Haus Dolomitenblick in Sexten, Italy by Plasma Studio

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016

Article source: Plasma Studio

The building is located on a hillside in the Dolomites, at the end of a residential area.

The volume has been developed mainly from its pragmatic functional request to host 6 independent apartments with one common circulation: through a cut that marks the main access and the division of the units the volume is splitted into 2 halves. Besides its functional meaning this incision becomes the main defining element of the building: from the cut at either side a strip unfolds that forms the balustrade of a generous covered balcony and ends into the surrounding topography. Following the steep natural hillside with each floor the strips and the façade jump back.

Masseria Moroseta in Ostuni, Italy by Andrew Trotter

Sunday, August 21st, 2016

Article source: Andrew Trotter 

Masseria Moroseta: a white stone farmhouse standing proudly on the ridge with views across the olive trees to the sea.

Built using traditional techniques and local materials, the modern architecture is influenced by masserie (farmhouses) of the past. Set in five hectares of olive groves with trees up to 500 years old, Masseria Moroseta is an enclave of pared-down relaxation and rural simplicity.

TETRIS House in San Candido, Italy by PLASMA Studio

Sunday, August 21st, 2016

Article source: PLASMA Studio

Tetris House is derived from the transformation of very pragmatic parameters into a spatially engaging concept. Multiple programmatic demands (five self-contained units, parking spaces and other covered exterior areas) have initiated two volumes. L-shaped in plan and section, they are spatially interwoven to produce a range of dynamic interstitial spaces.

Cottage Restoration in Parma, Italy by Studio Contini

Wednesday, August 17th, 2016

Article source: Studio Contini

This construction is located in Tufi d’Agna, a small settlement in the mountain town of Corniglio, inside of the Tuscan-Emilian Appenine recently recognized by the UNESCO as a MAB (Man and the Biosphere Programme) reserve.

The small building, a farm building once used to shelter the shepherds and animals, was recovered as a refuge where the residential use, considering the remote location and the difficulties to achieve it, is sporadic and linked to the summer period.
