Transformation retains the charm of a Catalan country house

In Priorat, Spain, GMO Arquitectura have rehabilitated and transformed a small Catalan country house, or ‘Mas,’ into a refuge for short-term vacation breaks. The retreat embodies the found state of the Mas and the rough and wild site of volcanic origin that surrounds.   Del Rio Bani The building is organized around two adjacent naves positioned at different levels. Constructed in different eras and adapted to the topography of the site, the new architecture differentiates itself from the pre-existing building mass. A conservative approach was taken to the original façade with only the necessary windows added to guarantee the required ventilation for the different rooms of the project. Del Rio Bani Importa...

Woldon Architects is on site for a new farmhouse between the Falmouth and Helford estuaries in Cornwall. The proposal replaces a compromised and poorly laid-out farmhouse of 315sqm with a highly efficient contemporary house of nearly 400sqm. The proposal was developed to embrace the best elements of Cornish farmhouse design with careful consideration for the client’s requirements for a contemporary home. The local area has a strong tradition of farmhouses following a simple rectangular or “L” shape plan often with gables ends. The new house seeks to continue this distinct Cornish tradition. Key principles of local vernacular design have been incorporated. The external walls are finished in coursed local granite with dress... Mais

MCM - pine cone house

The historic rural family house, remodeled in the mid-70s, turns into a modern, single-family house with a 'pensieve' and a panoramic terrace on the upper floor.The design philosophy was to transform the original introverted and dark building in the interiors into a house all facing the outside, bright and open, with new views towards the garden, the architectural emergencies (baroque church of Santa Venera della Madonna delle Grazie ) and natural landscapes. This has been achieved, yes, by significantly modifying all the elevations and giving a new connotation outside the house, but with the desire, to keep the original internal structure legible and enhance, typical of many spontaneous rural buildings scattered throughout the Marsala coun...

The volume of the villa is built on strict geometry. The key architectural accent is the courtyard that provides both privacy and exposure to light. The task was to create a private space surrounded by greenery and exposed to light, taking into account that the area is small, building on neighbouring plots from three sides and only one side looks at the forest. The villa is a two-story building with open terraces and a flat roof. The house is placed closer to the plot border so that most of the territory in front of the forest could be turned into a park. The maintenance block is located along the plot border, and the residential building adjoins it through the courtyard in between. The open terraces of the ground and the first floors face... Mais

Country Houses at Kos Island

On an island in the Aegean Sea, where exorbitance has no reason to exist, simplicity dominates and becomes the source of inspiration. Built according to the owner's activities and his aesthetic pursuits, the two country houses express the simplicity of luxury and the joy of architecture as a sequence of spaces. A linear design approach composes a flat and smooth shape which is effortlessly integrated into the landscape, letting the building's lines to disappear into the skyline. This character is strongly enhanced by the presence of the local flora at the perimeter of the houses, thus creating a fully functional courtyard, which is directly connected to the Greek culture and emphasizes the sense of freedom. Simple and easily recognizable ge... Mais

A country house is anchored to the horizon line, where the bank of the Tresinaro torrent stands as background and scene of the environmental field. The house reinterprets an historical countryside typology space named porta morta in contemporary terms, defining a hollow space that becomes the fulcrum of architecture.Two side wings help to ground the house in the plot: they slide on each other by a transparent double height passing through which links and connects the spaces of the bedrooms / studio on the first floor through an hanging balcony.The porch as a solar diaphragm and jasmine canopy configures the open-air extension of the living room, while the first floor rooms extend the house towards the landscape.&nbs...

Casa Topo

Casa Topo: Conception of the Project This project is conceived with the premise of minimizing its impact on the environment, looking for the house to be perceived smaller than it really is. For this, the lower level of the house (which contains the social and service areas) is semi-buried and it is given a rustic and organic treatment, since it is the level that physically relates to nature, while in contrast, the upper level, the one that contains the bedrooms, is considered as a pure block (completely covered in wood) apparently simply resting on the ground.The first level (level of income to the project), which contains the bedrooms, is presented as a large wooden box resting on the ground. Taking advantage of the height from this l... Mais

Country House in Las Herencias

We moved to a completely rural environment. Suddenly everything is calmer, the hours seem to pass slower, and you can breathe quality of life in every corner.People are kind and not only say hello when you come across them, but it seems almost obligatory to stand up and talk to each other a little.Our client commissioned us with a comfortable cottage in which to enjoy his retirement, returning to the village where he grew up. Thousands of childhood memories came to his mind during every visit we made with him to follow the evolution of the work.The large plot of land allowed us to develop a comfortable house on a single floor, which we decided to fragment into elongated modules that connect the street with the backyard.Some modules are in t...

Maison Gauthier

Context and setting La Maison Gauthier is located in the Laurentians, in Quebec, near the town of Mont-Tremblant. It is set in a hilly terrain and is surrounded by a dense expanse of forest characteristic of this mountainous region. The lot is located on a rocky hill covered with spruce and birch. It is bounded to the east by the main road and to the west by the owners’ horse farm. The clients wanted a volume with views largely oriented towards the horses’ riding arena below. At the same time, they wanted to take advantage of the intimacy created by the topography of the lot.    The forested berm between the road and house creates a visual filter, allowing a sequential progression towards the building. The volume i... Mais
