Tree Snake Houses in Pedras Salgadas, Portugal by RA \\ Architectural & Design Studio

Thursday, September 15th, 2016

Article source: RA \\ Architectural & Design Studio

Along with the project Pedras Salgadas Park by architects Luís Rebelo de Andrade and Tiago Rebelo de Andrade, came the challenge of creating an object that could recreate the fantasy of the tree houses.

The project for these houses was developed in partnership with the Modular System Company. The idea was to get an object that would be far away from the orthogonality and from pre-established concepts associated with the modular construction.

Projecto Homem in Braga, Portugal by Cerejeira Fontes Architects

Wednesday, September 14th, 2016

Article source: Cerejeira Fontes Architects 

On the  highest  point  in  the  city  of  Braga the  different temporal  strata of the city can be seen. This is the location to construct the building, connected to this visual memory. The connection  of the present occurs in the courtyards of the building, the location of social activity at the center, the repetition extends into the city’s areas of activities. These connections are registered non-explicitly in the subtraction of masses form the construction  of the building, extending it to the city squares, main streets, buildings and landscape. There is a formal  and social relationship  between  the city and the  building.  A project  for  the  rehabilitating people with  problems  with  substance abuse assumes the  same fragmented   relationship   of  city  life  at  your  feet.  The organization  of  the  architectural   elements, regardless  of the   different   functions   that   compose  the   program,   it provides a formal response for each individual space and is revealed as a tool to transforming it into a piece of the city. The building  consists of  two  platforms  which  fall  within several   blocks   seemingly   independent,  creating   two courtyards:  one facing the  city and the  other  an interior courtyard.

“Apartment in Estrela” in Lisbon, Portugal by AURORA arquitectos

Sunday, September 11th, 2016

Article source: AURORA arquitectos

It is not necessary to create a world, but the possibility of a world.

Jean-Luc Godard in Reflexivity in Film and Architecture, 1985.

Reflectivity as concept, as much in its use in film or literature as in its appropriation by architecture, refers to that moment when the work suddenly draws focus onto itself as a construct, and as a fictional reality.

Single Family House Correnteza 21 in Lisbon, Portugal by Humberto Conde, Arq.

Friday, September 9th, 2016

Article source: Humberto Conde, Arq. 

This intervention seeks to maintain only the two main existing facades of the building, at North and East, given the high degree of deterioration of the overall volume. Although the existing building is not a remarkable architectural example and with construction quality, contributes to the cohesion of the urban image of the set to which it belongs, so the maintenance of facades allow the continuity of the dialogue between the building and the context in which it operates.

Grândola House in Portugal by ColectivArquitectura™

Friday, September 2nd, 2016

Article source: ColectivArquitectura™

The choice of location for deployment of the buildings aimed to make the most of the view of the terrain. At the same time it takes a small promontory to the location of a yard, located to the west of the dwelling, for the parking and maneuvering of vehicles.

The outside form resulted from the intention of creating situations of full/empty, adopting a composition of parallelepiped volumes, which create misalignment through its two courtyards, prolonging the experience of the house to the outside.

Monitoring and Investigation Centre and Accommodation for researchers in Açores, Portugal by aires mateus e associados

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

Article source: aires mateus e associados 

The project intends to evoke the architectural landscape of the Azores, drawing upon the form and material that embed the collective memory of this island and archipelago, that have become, with time, a second nature of this place. Therefore, the buildings are archetypal volumes, simple and compact, clad with the local basaltic stone.
