Casa Ortega in Sangolquí, Ecuador by Estudio A0 & Ana Maria Durán Calisto

Friday, June 8th, 2018

Article source: Estudio A0 & Ana Maria Durán Calisto

To design a house for someone is to build a portrait: the portrait of one or more human beings in their relationship with others and their surroundings. Casa Ortega was designed for a devout son. The commission was clear: a home with two pavilions, one for Raúl and his latent family, another one for his parents. Two houses in one: independent and interdependent. Two open links that string together in a horizontal 8, symbol of the infinite, of eternal return. One way to unravel bonds without piercing them is to offer each lace a space for autonomy. The social spaces of the house (kitchen, dining room and main living room) are the place for sharing and bonding. The private spaces (bedrooms, independent living rooms and bathrooms) provide the place for intimacy. The house design resulted, therefore, from the assembly of two pieces of equal size but different scale: a C which would scoop a garden for Raúl and his family, and an inverted C which would scoop another garden for his parents. The first one would funnel the afternoon sun and would be oriented towards the cordillera that provides the skyline in the horizon; the second one would receive the morning sun and would fold towards the interior. The double nature of the house decanted in a larger footprint for the private area, located in the upper floor. The difference between ground and upper floor was mediated by two inclined planes which provided the perfect opportunity to lodge an escalated library for Raúl, and a cascading inner garden for his mother.

Diffuse borders: r.i. House in Quito, Ecuador by arquitectura x

Thursday, May 17th, 2018

Article source: arquitectura x

A project that started with uncertainties instead of the usual requirements for permanent living spaces, demanded we shifted the way we approached architecture.

The project as it is now, is a house; it became a house in the process, with its actual configuration decided during construction, its final purpose and use still undecided, its duration as a house uncertain.

Permeable Living Building in Quito, Ecuador by architecture x

Wednesday, May 16th, 2018

Article source: architecture x

We approached the design for this building from a position that questions the solutions currently being produced in Quito in response to the necessity of densifying the city with mid rise construction.

Can we as architects provide economically attractive solutions for the real state market while meeting the new standards set by the City Government for responsible and efficient construction? But most importantly how do we reconcile market interest that focus on the individual, hermetic apartment isolated as much as possible from the discomforts and complications of public urban living, with the urgent necessity for architecture to be the tool for place making in a disjointed, hard-edged city?

Gaia Building in Ecuador by Leppanen + Anker

Saturday, January 14th, 2017

Article source: Leppanen + Anker

It is a 14 story, 15,000 m2 mixed use building: commercial on the lower floor, offices for the next four floors and residential units on the next nine floors.

The building is located at an important intersection within the city where urban elements converge, such as a new metro stop, an important government building, a commercial shopping center and the most emblematic park of the city. Being the first new construction in this zone and highly visible, the building attempts to combine the many existing and new diverse elements through movements that bring new shadow lines reflections and points of view.

odD House 1.0 in Quito, Ecuador by odD+ Architects

Friday, January 6th, 2017

Article source: odD+ Architects

DESCRIPTION

odD House 1.0, located in the sector of Tumbaco in Quito, Ecuador was conceived as a  therapeutic experiment and change of lifestyle for an elderly couple and their family after living in a rustic style home for over 30+ years. Facing very specific demands from the client, the architects strategized on a methodology for the design and final product by studying Neuroscience as well as the client´s lifestyle. This made the initial solution towards solving the design of the house easier; it made a clear diagram, and  gave a design direction towards the client`s main needs. It also raised questions about overall form and language.

Retoños House in Quito, Ecuador by ESEcolectivo

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

Article source: ESEcolectivo

The Retoños house belongs to a large extended family made up of several smaller families. The clients, Alvaro and María, wanted a house in which to bring together their 16 family members, including children and grandchildren. As a close-knit family, they get together very often. Until now, this took place in a small apartment in Quito, so they were looking for a quieter place far from the noise and drab environment of the city.
