Spanish Pavilion IX Venice Architecture Biennial in Venice, Italy by Arquitectos Ayala

Sunday, May 26th, 2013

Article source: Arquitectos Ayala

In Venice, right to the entrance of the Giardini is the Spanish pavilion of the Biennial. Without prejudice to more thorough interventions later, the pavilion façade –and the pavilion as a whole for that matter- urgently needed to present an image befitting a country emerging strongly in the heart of Europe.

Yin Yang House in Venice, California by Brooks + Scarpa Architects

Sunday, May 5th, 2013

Article source: Brooks + Scarpa Architects

This nearly net-zero energy live/work home and office was designed to function not only as a home and commercial office for both parents, but also as a private home for a large and growing family with several children. We sought to create a calm, relaxed and organized environment that emphasizes public space and changes the stereotype of a live/work home for a large family with young kids. Part private home and part business, the house is meant to serve as a place to entertain and a welcoming space for clients and teenagers.

LCV. Law-Court offices in Venice, Italy by C+S Architects

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

Article source: C+S Architects

Inhabited infrastructure

The project is a winning entry of an international competition. The building is a graft in the complexity of the Venetian urban system facing Piazzale Roma, the car-entrance space to the city of Venice. At the same time it becomes the ‘infrastructure’ which brings an existing 19th century complex factory (Ex-Manifattura Tabacchi) to a contemporary use: in fact it houses the technological systems  serving the whole.

Located on a 41’ wide x 100’-0” long through lot, the Solar Umbrella addition transforms the architects’ existing 650 square foot bungalow into a 1900 square foot residence equipped for responsible living in the twenty-first century.

Colors on Water in Venice, Italy by GruppoFonArchitetti (Designed using ArchiCAD)

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

Article source: GruppoFonArchitetti

Venice is an organic city, where the sea water goes in for six hours and goes out for six hours from the lagoon, which surrounds the city.. The saltwater is mixed with fresh water of the lagoon, creating a unique ecosystem, where, perhaps, against nature, man has built. In these green water, due to the life of the seabeds, everything is reflected, starting from the sky which provides colour variations throughout the day, seasons and weather conditions.

Brooks Avenue House in Venice, California by bricault design

Saturday, October 8th, 2011

Article source: bricault design

The clients for this project needed more space to accommodate the needs of a growing family, but they were reluctant to leave their location in Venice – one of the few walkable neighborhoods in Los Angeles.  The solution was to maintain and remodel their existing 2000 square foot home, while creating a 1700 square foot addition and courtyard on the rear lane side.
