Text description provided by the architects. Coronda River Banks
Thinking of a living space it is always complex if it is understood as a link between the implicit  customs-  meaning  culture-,  socio-physical  needs  that  each  individual  brings with  himself,  and  environment-context  where  the  work  is  projected.  The  space  and limits  incorporated  as  a  shelter  bring  the  challenge of  migrating  to  another  condition, place, from a chronotopic conception.

Time-Space-Individual
It all starts with a wonderful landscape, typical of the coast, where wetlands and biodiversity stay around.

From the very beginning it was sought to reflect on two principal elements that shape the necessity of shelter and ground and ceiling planes. It is there where the designer stops to think about

From the architect. A small office, white walls and low white ceiling. This was the place we had to put down to find what was behind all that painting. During the entire process we were inside, It was a demolition process where we were curating what we wanted to see, deciding what should go and what should stay. Through the process we found the concrete under that painting, all kinds of bricks, the concrete slab on the ceiling. When we could finally see all that together, we started to choose how to show them according to the briefing we had.

The intention was to convey a sensation of rest, recreation and relaxation, providing clear views from the terrace in order to contemplate the lagoon in its entire dimension. The building had to be seeable from the distance yet not be a disruptive element in the landscape. In order to do so, a higher volume was built to serve as reference point from the distance

From the architect. VDA is a residential building whose apartments make up a carved and irregular volume. The shape is its more explicit difference and, structurally, is the result of some small lateral swings designed as overlapping diagonals. In addition to proposing an alternative to the sameness of the local residential vertical architecture, the project recovers elements that have been forgotten by the real estate market, such as

When the project began, we were faced with one more piece of this unique urban trace, but with a significant level of disrepair. Sometimes, with any possibility to measure or to contrast anything, so we had to give an individualized answer to every little detail as was emerging.

From the architect. The project consists of a weekend house for a family of three, in a gated community north of the province of Buenos Aires. The layout of the community proposes a natural environment around a series of artificial lagoons, suggesting a very close relationship with suburban utopias common to other latitudes. The house is actually one of the first buildings in the area. The lack of contextual references such as a natural landscape or existing buildings led us to focus on the relationship between the empty lot, its buildable area and the gentle slope towards the lagoon, and to

We seek to extend the physical boundaries through the relationships between private and public.. This project consolidates the spatial void as a mechanism that encourage experiences through a spatial sequence in form of adjacent patios in different levels. The looseness of boundaries generates new bonding and spatial relationships.

From the architect. This small house for a graphic designer and her husband sits on the heavily wooded eastern shore of Wisconsin’s Door County, a narrow peninsula on Lake Michigan. Embedded in a dense forest of deciduous and coniferous trees, the building’s unassuming volume is quietly nestled in a small clearing at the western edge of the gently sloping site, its low-slung silhouette virtually disappearing in the surrounding vegetation. The building’s restrained exterior material palette is limited to charred cedar siding from Northern Wisconsin, its textured, somber blackness complemented by varnished clear cedar, dark-anodized aluminum, and glass.

From the architect. In a Nutshell The site is neighboured by huge houses. We were asked to provide the family with ‘just the right amount of space’. By creating large openings and generous connections to the garden we aimed to make this modest-sized house feel abundant and broad. The result is a home that is almost half the size of its neighbours without compromising liveability.

 Approach The limited construction budget has been the primary factor in targeting a minimalistic approach in the design. The intentional restriction of use of details and materials helped to achieve a stronger expression of architecture without exceeding costs. The clearly defined form enhances the contemplative atmosphere of the space, emphasising its predominant function.

From the architect. The Hillside Residence is a substantial renovation and expansion of a 1927 bungalow in the Travis Heights neighborhood of Austin, Texas. The existing, 1,000-square foot building was rescued from dilapidation; it was delineated abstractly in stark white and paired with a new, 1,100-square foot sculptural volume clad in black-stained cypress and connected via a glass entry bridge. Akin to Marcel Breuer’s 1943 proposition for a Bi-Nuclear House, the home is split into two zones—one for living and socializing, and the other for concentration, work and sleeping. By virtue of entering in the middle, both sides
