J4 Houses by Vertice Arquitectos

Residential Architecture: J4 Houses by Vertice Arquitectos: “..We were faced with a plot of land shaped as a quarter of a circumference that had a height difference of 5.50 meters on the curved side. This side has a privileged view of the sea. In addition, we were conditioned by the construction regulations which enabled us to build two terraced levels..The project is based upon two containers, which have been cut, in order to adopt a “mineral” form. These different volumes have been designed to overhang in order to avoid the use of great contention walls and to create useful spaces beneath them. They also define the entrance to the house..The first volume, located at the highest point of the plot, hosts the main bedroom and has a one level. The second volume, located at the lowest height, has two floors, beneath of which the parking area situated..Access to the house is through a sloped garden that leads to the entrance hall, space which articulates both volumes. It takes us to the more intimate area of the entrance level and to the stairs. Through the stairs we reach, in first place, the main bedroom and then the social area of the house, located at the highest level..Due to the existing coast regulations all exterior walls are painted white and contention walls are veneered with concrete tiles. Frameworks have been finished in a steel blue look..”  Interesting form, interior volumes; extensive glazing..

* Residential Architecture: CyD House by V.Oid

Posted by the editors on Thursday, 25 October 2012

Residential Architecture: CyD House by V.Oid: “..The Project consists of a 470 m²  summer home in the Los Cóndores Country Club of Chaclacayo, north of Lima, Peru. The site measures approximately 2500 m², with an extremely irregular geometry and steep inclines, the most dramatic of which is a land depression with obsolete cisterns. To best reintegrate the unoccupied area in the lot -its main asset– we pushed the house up against its sheerest front to consolidate the outer area before and below its line of vision. Using a very strong symmetry, the house’s shape consists of two wings in a V-shape that adjust to the terrain’s perimeter, maximizing the flat garden area at the front..The entrance to the house is at its far left. A lengthwise, partly-covered gallery runs along the house, integrating all social areas, namely, the vestibule, the living and dining rooms, the kitchen and terrace. The second storey holds the private areas: on the left wing, the childrens’ quarters; on the right one, a family porch and, at the center, atop the volume with the greatest hierarchical importance, the master bedroom, with a privileged view onto the valley..The house is for someone very passionate about wood so we explored about its uses and different expressions. All the joints were designed to be invisible generating an apparent equilibrium between the pieces that rest one on top of the other. The wooden columns rest on an empty Corten steel frame. The floors, columns and beams of the terrace are Cumaru wood but of different qualities, the knots, streaks and natural features are part of the expression of the material. The shade of woods sticks plays with a gradient of distances that responding to the sun movement. The bougainvillea on the pots of the second floor will grow to give a colorful atmosphere into the space underneath it. Deep vein wood planks were used to form the concrete walls that frames the Olive tree at the entry. The pool has the same treatment side walls of concrete but the floor and backs are treated like a carpet of blue Mosaics. The second floor features a rusted slate surface and around the perimeter of the lot as well as the wall that delimits the pool area is built with local stone..”  Interesting form and materiality; extensive use of wood and stone; ample glazing, natural light..

* Residential Architecture: House SL by Llosa Cortegana Arquitectos

Posted by the editors on Monday, 8 October 2012

Residential Architecture: House SL by Llosa Cortegana Arquitectos: “..There are some projects that allow us to think the family inhabit from inserting links generated by the space, by architecture. The appearance of the void / patio receives and introduces us into the inner world of private space, and detains us in the materiality of the wall allowing the contact with the street..Thus the house defines its spatiality from daily bond with the library, the celebration of reading is inserted into a vertical space that integrates variety of uses in the property. The architecture confines us to live with others, the family presence is manifested in the daily use of the stairs..It is the light that defines and bathes in a subtle manner the environments of the dining room celebrating the family ritual defining its contour faceted in its materiality that generates glances and atmospheres that allow us the relationship with the private..The architecture celebrates the housing, linkages, the rituals and especially makes it possible to think of the dwell in the privacy of the world family..”  Extensive glazing, natural light; interesting form, interior volumes and materials sensibility..

* Residential Architecture: oZs0 House by Martin Dulanto

Posted by the editors on Thursday, 9 August 2012

Residential Architecture: oZs0 House by Martin Dulanto: “..The CASA oZs0 is a single-family house that has been conceived as four “boxes” or “independent blocks” (social block, master bedroom block, guestroom block, service block) separated from each other by clearly marked axes: the circulations..The project blocks have been designed as pure volumes (rectangular prisms) with some perforations and a fairly simple, geometric space design. The social block has been designed as a “light volume” (glass closing with woodwork of a natural, dark finish). The use of a transparent closing (glass screens) suits the visual integration of the interior with the exterior. These sliding screens will help create a physical integration between the interior and exterior..The dormitory blocks (master bedroom and guestroom) have been created as more closed off from the outside with the idea that these spaces will retain a certain level of privacy. The service block will be closed off or hidden from the outside. The kitchen is an exception, as it has a window and a glass screen facing the garden..The outer walls of the facades will be rustically polished with ATLAS cement, and will have a semi-rustic texture and an earthy color. The interior walls of the social area will be of exposed concrete. The interior walls of the dormitory area will be plastered and white painted. The windows will be glass and transparent. The window frames and screens will be of a dark, natural wood. The inner and outer floors will be of stamped concrete..Reinforced concrete plates will be combined and assembled with exposed porticos (beams and columns) of reinforced concrete and brick partitions..”  Extensive glazing, natural light, views; variously textured concrete with an abundance of natural wood..
