House in Mosteiro, PORTUGAL by Arquitectos Matos

Saturday, September 7th, 2013

Article source: Arquitectos Matos

The site is located on the outskirts of Santa Maria da Feira, surrounded by a diffuse and changing landscape.

The concept of the project comes from the combined interpretation of the functional program of a single-family house with the specific premises of the clients, as from the study of the characteristics of the lot and its surroundings and morphological conditions.

The house is organized in a single floor around a central courtyard, facing South and West, protected from the street on the North side.

Bronte House by Rolf Ockert Design

Saturday, September 7th, 2013

Article source: Rolf Ockert Design

The client approached us to create house of their dreams on a site perched high over the Pacific Ocean, a home that was to make them feel like being on holiday every day. While the view was fantastic the site was very small and suffocated by overbearing neighbouring dwellings.

The finished house, though, feels generous and as if it is alone with the ocean and the sky.

Being tightly restricted by site conditions there were only two avenues we could take to create generosity of space and location:

Firstly the surprising height of the living room space that takes advantage of the only extravagant spatial dimension available to us.

Chinchwad is a thirty minute drive from the center of Pune, and is thriving as a factory neighborhood of domestic and Western automakers. The main target for this hotel is these Western businesspersons.

This was our seventh project in India, and we designed the whole interior of the newly built hotel with 14 floors and about 120 rooms. It is a five-star hotel, which is still rare in Chinchwad, and has all-day dining, a bar, spa, hair salon, gym, ex-lounge, presidential suite, and roof top bar facilities.
