Situated at the very summit of a hill north of Madrid, with the sierra as a backdrop in the distance, a house for Ana.

Once again, we are trying to build the loveliest house in the world.

And to capture that 360º panoramic landscape, we propose a belvedere at the top of the house where one feels in seventh heaven.

ТАЮ Ice Cream Shop in Odesa, Ukraine by Sivak+Partners Studio

We barely had time to take a picture before February 24 and the war in Ukraine came.

The gelateria had been open in Odessa for a couple of weeks and it was closed and the windows were boarded up. We didn’t know for a long time if it would ever reopen.

“ТАЮ” translates from Ukrainian as “I’m melting,” and the menu only includes ice cream and juices.

We were looking for a simple solution, simple materials, and one clear idea that would create and unite the whole interior.

Beiramar House in Portugal by Merooficina

Casa da beiramar is located in one of Aveiro’s ancient fishermen neighborhoods, beira-mar, a downtown landscape of long and narrow old fishermen houses built on adobe, coated by colorful tiles of the local industry and filled with green ceramic flowerpots.

This part of the city has been witnessing an interesting fusion between the old dwellers and the recent inhabitants. One of the new inhabitants pretended to restore this ancient adobe house, foreseeing an evolutive program: on an initial phase, serve as two apartments and then as a house, with or without an independent office, on a near future.

Punta Colorada III Shelter in Uruguay by TATÚ Arquitectura

The land is located in an area of maritime forest near the first stretch of oceanic beach in Uruguay. This presented a diversity of native species living together in a dense and difficult-to-access ecosystem with the presence of several specimens of eucalyptus, coronilla and aruera, among other species that they wanted to preserve to build their own narrative between the future architecture project and its immediate landscape. At the same time, the topography of the land presented a pronounced depression towards the rear and lateral zone, product of the presence of two small ravines that collect the runoff of natural water from the area and channel it towards the sea.

The BungaLOW in Uttar Pradesh, India by Anagram Architects

 
August 5th, 2022 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Anagram Architects

With frugal beginnings, the bungalow residential typology’s various evolutions reached their post-colonial zenith of opulence, sub-urbanism and privilege in the late 1990’s. Subsequently, enhanced pressures on urban land and liberalised real-estate market forces reduced the ubiquity of the large land parcels required for bungalows (typically upwards of 4000 sqm).That scarcity, however, continues to substantially elevate the aspirational desire to live in one. This project interrogates the Delhi bungalow typology on a substantially smaller plot.

427 House was built on the existing footprint of the old house which has a memorable flashback of the family. MAINCOURSE demanded respect and remembered the valuable memory by using clay cladding for the facade of the floating mass which recalled the sense of place where they used to live.

The specially mixed clay 1220 degree Celsius fired has collaborated with Mo Jirachaisakul who is an expert of clay and glass. It was designed to be used throughout the interior and exterior, from the roof to the bathroom. Therefore, it must be durable and tactile friendly at the same time.
