KRADS — Langitangi Summerhouse - Divisare by Europaconcorsi

Published on September 17, 2014. The main focus in the design of the summerhouse was to create a careful and functional engagement with the dramatic and beautiful topography of the site. Partly submerged in the steep terrain of Langitangi (“Long-Peninsula”), the elongated building’s horizontal figure presents itself in the landscape as a geometrically accentuated topographic contour line. The building’s placement on the peninsula was specifically chosen in order to create a varied dialogue between the structure and it’s context. The rough concrete and the low, cantilevered roof endure the windswept site, while the building thoughtfully shelters in- and outdoor spaces from the barren landscape.

Published on December 04, 2014. Recibimos el encargo para la realización de una bodega de nueva creación. Los promotores aún no disponían de ninguna parcela, únicamente deseaban que se encontrara dentro del valle de Yerri (Navarra), una zona cuya climatología y características edafológicas permitían disponer de los viñedos adecuados para crear un vino de calidad lleno de personalidad propia. El encargo se complementó con la imagen gráfica de la marca y los productos que nosotros mismos realizamos.

Con esas premisas se concibe un edificio que pretende adaptarse al máximo a las condiciones naturales del terreno, evitando modificaciones artificiales de la topografía existente. El programa se organiza en dos plantas más una entreplanta. En la entreplanta (nivel -1) encontramos las dependencias destinadas al personal, aseos y vestuarios junto con el laboratorio. El edificio consta de cubierta plana ya que la actividad requiere una altura libre constante. Alberto Campo Baeza — Casa del Infinito. © Javier Callejas Sevilla - .

Children attending this nursery in Spain by Pamplona studio Taller Básico de Arquitectura enter through an angular concrete corridor carved out of the building's faceted shell (+ slideshow). The building's location on a steeply sloping site outside the town of Haro led architects Javier Pérez-Herreras and Javier Quintana de Uña of Taller Básico de Arquitectura to base their design on a geological formation, emerging from the hillside. "We conceive an architecture dictated by crystallographic laws," said the architects, adding that the suburban milieu of roads and infrastructure influenced the monumental design.

"The daycare centre is conceived as a great rock, a visible structure for that building-less city," they said. The building's lower level, housing maintenance and service facilities, is largely enclosed in a monolithic slab that rises from the landscape above a nearby road.

Colombian shanty town installs giant outdoor escalators to relief of residents spared a trudge up steps (equivalent to climbing 28-storey building) By Pamela Owen Updated: 08:45 GMT, 28 December 2011 A huge outdoor escalator has been erected in one of the poorest districts of Colombia's second largest city.

For generations 12,000 people living in Medellin's tough Comuna 13 - which clings to a hillside - have had to made the arduous journey up hundreds of large steps, which is the equivalent to climbing up a 28-storey building. But now a giant outdoor escalator will cut their journey from 35-minutes to just six, and grateful residents have said 'it is a dream come true'. Luis Holguin, accompanied by his daughter Resfa, finds it much easier to move around the district with the help of the escalator, which is free for people to use.

The expansion of Viladecans, as the vast majority of towns located on the left riverbank of the River Llobregat (Sant Vicenç, Santa Coloma de Cervello, Sant Boi, Gavá, Castelldefels, etc.), has not only been hampered due to the riverbeds (rieras), but also has ignored them until they became outdoor sewers where waste waters were discharged and demolition debris was accumulated. The recovery project for the Riera de Sant Climent aimed to consider the riverbed as a natural corridor that would work as a link between the agricultural park and the mountain across the town.
