The Hunkered House | Lijo.Reny.architects

The Hunkered House is a residence designed by the architectural firm LIJO.RENY.architects. What looks like a single-storey building from the outside is a strategically designed house with multiple levels that hunkers down gently into the slope to protect it from all kinds of pollution generated by the heavy traffic on the road. A large landscaped courtyard inside the house and four smaller peripheral pockets are primary ventilation sources. The Hunkered House reflects the unassuming lifestyle of the homeowners, be it the form of the building, the choice of materials, interior décor, and accessories.

Tsingpu Yangzhou Retreat | Neri & Hu Design and Research office

Tsingpu Yangzhou Retreat is an adaptive reuse hospitality project designed by the architectural firm Neri & Hu. The design brief called for the adaptive reuse of several old buildings by giving them new functions while adding new buildings to accommodate the hotel’s capacity needs. Neri&Hu’s strategy to unify these scattered elements was to overlay a grid of walls and paths onto the site to tie the entire project together, resulting in multiple courtyard enclosures. The inspiration for the design originates from the courtyard house typology of Chinese vernacular architecture.

3 Elements House | Agustin Lozada

3 Elements House is a residence designed by the architectural firm Agustin Lozada. The architectural concept comes from searching simply, with a total absence of ornamentation and free detail resolution. It was decided to propose a vierendeel beam, with one end embedded in the mountain and the other cantilevered, resolving from this concept the structure, materiality, and the house envelope. The house’s materiality follows the concept of using noble raw materials, naked, expressing nature, and generating a respectful relationship with the environment.

Countryside House | Luciano Kruk Arquitectos

Countryside House is a residence designed by the architectural firm Luciano Kruk Arquitectos. The clients required a house where the space would be optimized to the last square meter, intending to build the minimum area as possible containing the requested spaces: two bedrooms, a study, and a social area. The firm’s strategy came from focusing on the main interest that came from the power that the Pampas plains have in the environment: the omnipresence of the horizon plane, the extension of the uninterrupted plains, all so infinite, and the immense sky dominating the visual space only enhanced by some few groups of trees.

Obra Los Lagos | Barrionuevo Villanueva ARQuitectos

Obra Los Lagos is a residence designed by the architectural firm Barrionuevo Villanueva ARQuitectos. The constructive logic with which the house was projected is part of the material work related to forming, space and time. Within these logics is the architectural structure that manifests as an order capable of generating space and generating the route to discover it. It is a conceptualization in tectonic terms, which involves both the problem of the relationship between weights, efforts, and materials and that of human forms and requirements. The configuration of these systems produces the material expression of the work.
