Casa Xonar in Silves, Algarve, Portugal by Studio ARTE

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

Article source: Studio ARTE

There was a time when Silves was the capital of great Andalusia, conquered by the Moors and ruled  for centuries, traces of Islamic architecture can still be found in the city once named Xelb, Gharb Al-Anadalus.

The name given Casa Xonar has the meaning to rest, sleep and dream, it offers a perfect retreat in the centre of the old city of Silves. With echoes of this past, Xonar reflects its historical surroundings in the sharpest way, from its Islamic exterior of white washed design to its rooftop terraces and  hidden rooms, the concept of private lifestyle runs throughout.

House in Miramar, Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal by e|348 arquitectura

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

Article source: e|348 arquitectura 

It is a building consisting of two distinct adjacent and interrelated volumes, the housing itself – consisting of two storeys plus a penthouse – and a garage.

Although the volume, apparently, is being treated as a solid monolith, it is fully traversed, with vertical and horizontal voids, with the purpose of creating strong visual relations with its contiguous exterior spaces, and allowing the light to enter through the entire house.

Alcoutins House in Lisboa, Portugal by Guedes Cruz Architects

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Article source: Guedes Cruz Architects 

The site is the plane where our projects become architecture.

It is on this that we build and what we see are the apparent forms, those which appear above this plane.

In the Alcoutins House the real form is that which has as a support a plane which is 3.5 metres below ground level. It is like a lake, where the volumes float or rest on the base, where we see only the part that appears above the waterline.

CASA BE in Paredes, Portugal by Spaceworkers

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

Article source: Spaceworkers

The idea of a vernacular architecture (forgotten) and how it seeks to form a clear speech between the landscape and programmatic needs is something that we always admire.

A very successful example of this discourse, are the structures to support agriculture (normally function barns / granary), which in a more or less random would punctuate the countryside, as blocks of ephemeral appearance that levitated on the ground.

ILUSTRARTE 14, Biennial International Exhibition of Children’s Books Illustration in Lisbon, Portugal by Pedro Cabrito + Isabel Diniz architects

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

Article source: Pedro Cabrito + Isabel Diniz architects

PLAYGROUND

For this Ilustrarte 14, we have crossed illustration for children with the playful and creative dimension of the act of playing, in a solution that explores the formal features of the famous colorful toy blocks, timeless in its simplicity and potential for discovery.
It is noteworthy that the first concept model has been literally assembled using a set of blocks bought at a toy store.

These objects remain recognizable and communicative, extracted from the everyday iconography, transforming banal into an exercise that brings us closer to the creative process of illustrating.

CENTER FOR INTERPRETATION OF JEWISH CULTURE in Trancoso, Portugal by Gonçalo Byrne Arquitectos + Oficina Ideias em linha

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Article source: Gonçalo Byrne Arquitectos + Oficina Ideias em linha 

OBJECT

The Interpretation Center was plotted in the dense urban fabric of a medieval fortified village, in an area once referred as the Jewish quarter of Trancoso.

Starting from a ruined allotment, the aim was to re-erect a building that reinforces the corner geometry, still displaying an acute angle on the intersection of two narrow streets, and establishing a symbolic gesture in the context of Jewish urban culture.
