Friday, January 27th, 2012

Article source: Mario Martins

In the south of Portugal, in Lagos, a house has been designed on steep and difficult land, but with a stunning view over the west coast of the Algarve.  The strong sunshine coming from the west also determined the position and character of the house.

The architectural project is determined by technically developed solutions, using sustainable geothermal energy and integrated smart home systems.

Chão das Giestas House in Guarda, Portugal by AVA Architects

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Article source: AVA Architects

The house evolves having the planimetry of the city (Guarda-Portugal) as a background. The place, in peripheral context, is profoundly different from the center because of the recently urbanization, the natural territory was depersonalized by the topographic changes caused by that. The existing public space is builded without an organisation that matches the topography of the place, forcing an artificial and uncharacterized lotting, Nowadays, there are different morphologies and typologies of construction.

Cartaxo Cultural Centre in Cartaxo, Portugal by CVDB Arquitectos

Friday, December 23rd, 2011

Article source: CVDB Arquitectos

The new Cultural Centre in Cartaxo stands out for the bold in situ exposed concrete cantilever that, like a “belly of a whale”, projects itself onto the sidewalk and foyer to house the main auditorium. This public building is located between two gables, taking on the modest urban scale of the main square of Cartaxo. The building introduces an iconographic and public character that balances the relationship between the site exiguity and the extensive programme.
