Situated in Ciudad de Puebla, México, Casa Once (2018) by Espacio 18 Arquitectura + Cueto Arquitectura. Casa Eleven was designed as a tailor-made suit for a young couple who were looking for a refuge that would take them away from the outer chaos and create a space of tranquillity to develop as people. The house is located in a single-family home in the city of Puebla, where the real estate sector has grown dramatically and imposes projects that do not always meet the current and future needs of people. The price of land has increased as a result of this “boom”, so that each time the properties are smaller and more exclusive, from there we set out solutions to respond and generate a good project contemplating the land conditions of 1,600 ft² (150 m²) and the internal regulations for the construction of the subdivision.


The scheme starts with exercises of subtraction from the architectural program, finally creating an “I”, this scheme allows the passage of a correct and thought natural lighting at different times of the year, in addition, to cross ventilation, which can be controlled by the user. The perforations in the project are creating patios that make all the areas have a spatial fluidity that allows green views from any point of the house, introducing the surprise factor. Also, the limits of adjacency in the back of the property are respected.

 

 


 

The project is developed in 3 levels, on the ground floor the social areas are distributed, opening onto the courtyards, where the program is extended and joined by means of glass screens. On the first level are the bedrooms, with views of the sky and an “Acacia” tree, which gives strength to the patio and that in spring will change to a purple color, becoming a major milestone inside the house. Finally, on the second level is the entertainment area, services and the Roof garden with a panoramic view of the volcanoes.

 


 

The facade responds to the program and part of the idea of living the house inside the walls, avoiding openings to the street and unnecessary elements, the flare allows a light bounce back to the studio, controlling visuals and lighting during the day. We generate, define and interpret the materiality through the internal construction regulations, exposing natural wood and flattened with black pigment. Inside, the engineering floor, furniture, carpentry and wooden beams provide warmth, smells, sounds, and textures in all spaces. In the bathrooms, the tiles of Oaxacan artist Francisco Toledo allow us to introduce the art and to remember another city that has given us a lot as architects.

House ALM by Estudio ODS located in Tavira, Portugal. The program is separated by levels: ground floor holds the social areas; entrance room; living room; kitchen and WC; the first floor holds the private areas with the two bedrooms and a bathroom. The roof attic an extra space is offered with direct relation to the terrace.

 

 

 


 

The materials used to seek for the simplicity found in Algarve’s vernacular architecture; in the ground floor the hydraulic mosaics cover all the interior spaces; the first floor solid wood for private areas and outside areas a grey polished concrete covers all the areas. A red door spots the house in both elevations.

Located in Aalter, Belgium, DE BAEDTS House (2016) by Architektuuburo Dirk Hulpia. The spacious plot is located in a rural and green area along a connecting road, characterized by a tall farm row. This is the access to the house at the front of the plot. The rear focuses on the beautiful landscape and forest. Logically the house opens to the underlying landscape and creates a freely closed facade on the street side to ensure the privacy of the residents. In order to not disturb the front view, the carport is placed out of sight and integrated into the house with an interesting game of volumes. These three volumes contain the program. The front one, the storage, and technical room. The back box, the main entrance and living room facing the garden and the upper one the sleeping rooms and the office.

 

 

 


 

To prevent the closure of the boxes, windows were placed strategically. The front window in the façade, which breaks the closed front façade, is so conceived that, like a lighthouse, it becomes a focus. It is functional too because the office is located there on the upper floor and due to the high position, it avoids the street view. This particular window is deep behind the facade to provide protection against the heavy sunlight and, on the other hand, to increase the effect of a floodlight. Big openings are on the back, on the ground floor, and on the top floor. Large glass pieces like a window on the underlying world with an accent on the sliding part.

House in Vila Boim (2013) by Intergup

House in Vila Boim (2013) by Intergaup located in Vila Boim, Portugal | The Hardt

 

House in Vila Boim (2013) by Intergaup located in Vila Boim, Portugal. The house is located on an agricultural property with 50ha in Vila Boim, Alentejo. Alentejo’s landscape is primarily composed of soft rolling hills and plains, with cork oaks and olive trees, or the occasional vine. Northern Alentejo’s agriculture is mostly livestock-based as typified by cows, sheep, and pigs. To the south, the agriculture is mostly arable. The brief was simple: – A weekend house where throughout the summer and winter, the family could enjoy the beauty of this vast natural landscape. The main house has only one floor in a “U” shape. The U has its back facing the slope, creating an inner courtyard. This way we are able to create a protected space that makes this initial promenade more personal and comfortable.

 

 


 

This courtyard that we call “pátio” shows a subtle drawing, marked by the spans inserted in a regular grid, a central flowerbed and a water tank flat against the retaining wall that goes all along the entrance path. An outside staircase allows the connection to the top of the terrain and to the housekeepers’ house. The three volumes of the “U” house are constituted by the different functions of the house. In the center, facing the west and overlooking an overwhelming landscape, the social areas, entrance hall, living room and dining room. On the north side, the service area with a kitchen, a small dining room, and technical areas. To south the private parts of the house, an area with four bedrooms. The choice of these traditional materials was, in a way, a concern to integrate the house in the rural context where it is located, however, the drawing and the purity in the details refer to a more contemporary architectonic approach.

Chateau Cheval Blanc Winery by Christian de Portzamparc located in Cheval Blanc, 33330 Saint-Émilion, France. With a view to improving wine production at Château Cheval Blanc, owners Bernard Arnault and Baron Albert Frère asked Christian de Portzamparc to design a new winery. In this vineyard shaped by man over the centuries, the architect envisioned a winery shaped like a belvedere projecting out from the château and opening onto the beautiful landscape.
Based on discussions with the director of the Château, Pierre Lurton, who has extensive experience of wine-making in concrete vats, much appreciated at Cheval Blanc, the architect designed a curved vat shaped like a tasting glass to optimize oxygenation.

 

 

 

Divided into 52 units with dimensions varying according to the vineyard plots, they provide a showcase for each vine, as requested by Pierre Lurton. No line here is superfluous: everything contributes to perfecting the wine-making process and the movements carried out in the winery: the geometry of the curved surfaces in molded concrete, the unique atmosphere created by the natural light descending earthwards, caressing the load-bearing shear wall surrounding the large concrete sculptures of the vat house. The barrel winery below is like a crypt and has a totally different atmosphere, bordered by a brick moucharaby wall to facilitate natural ventilation.
Halfway between the interior and exterior, the winery is a place of transmutation and interaction with nature. This is where exceptional wine is made and where, through architecture, modernity meets centuries-old experience.
