S. G. House in Oliveira de Azeméis, Portugal by Atelier d’Arquitectura J. A. Lopes da Costa

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015

Article source: Atelier d’Arquitectura J. A. Lopes da Costa

The house consists of two structures, perpendicular to each other, and a third one serving the swimming pool.

Due to its volume this house seems to have two floors, but it is, in fact, distributed almost exclusively in one. The structure of the living rooms, with a double height ceiling, which also houses the study and the gallery located on the first floor, grants it another volume dimension.

Olympia Cinema in Porto, Portugal by NO Arquitectos Lda.

Sunday, April 5th, 2015

Article source: NO Arquitectos Lda.

Design a disco club could be frightening and it may become a very naughty challenge. The requirements of the main public and the final purpose is the opposite of my main beliefs on architecture.
Some keywords for a program like this are ‘entertainment’, ‘vanity’, ‘excess’, ‘fantasy’ and somehow ‘performance’ seeking legitimacy.
Austerity and delict may coexist, depending on the critical state of awareness of the facts and its proper resolution, as A. Loos stood for. I’m out to read.

RENOVA STORE & THEATRE in Torres Novas, Portugal by Paulo Henrique Durão, Architect

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

Article source: Paulo Henrique Durão, Architect

There was, from the beginning, the intent to work this project as a machine, a TIME CAPTURING MACHINE. This condition was naturally the result of the place, the context and the industrial spirit, that penetrated the imagination. Condition to which it was added the will to capture, within the project, time and its flow. A flow of time and light into the spaces that would say – the architecture captures time, architecture captures the flow of time.

Alvega Canoeing Center in Abrantes, Portugal by ateliermob – Arquitectura

Friday, March 13th, 2015

Article source: ateliermob – Arquitectura 

With the same area and volume of the previous building, the new Canoeing Center is also located at the river beach of Alvega. Its proximity to the Tagus river, in a regularly flooded area during the winter, determined its position, raised above ground level – increasing the ground permeability –, and the coating of its walls, with a solution of black recycled plastic profiles, able to resist the impact of objects that might be dragged by the river, being permeable to the water flow simultaneously.
