Punta Colorada III Shelter / TATÚ Arquitectura

May 16, 2022 Agustina Coulleri 0

The land is in an area of maritime forest near the first stretch of the oceanic beach in Uruguay. Here it has a diverse number of native species living in an obscure ecosystem. Amongst these species are the Eucaliptus, Coronilla, or Aruera among other valuable species that we must preserve to build a narrative about the future architecture project and its immediate landscape. At the same time, the topography of the land presents a pronounced hollow on its back and lateral side, because of two ravines that carry natural water from the mountains to the sea.

Lookout Ñielol / Jaime Inostroza

Just a seven-minute walk from the center of Temuco is the main entrance of Cerro Ñielol through Prat street. This axis links the foot of the hill to the other edge of the city, the Cautín River. In Chile, there are only seventeen declared natural monuments and one of them is the Ñielol hill. The ascent to the hill starts subtly by a winding path that follows the contour lines of the existing topography. This path formed by the density of shade from the foliage of native trees is suddenly illuminated by rays of light and landscape windows looking out over the city of Temuco.

Artists’ Ateliers London Design District / BAROZZI VEIGA

May 11, 2022 Agustina Coulleri 0

The Design District on the Greenwich Peninsula is a one-hectare riverside site with 16 new buildings that will provide an affordable base for creative businesses to trade, interact and grow. Eight emerging architectural practices from across Europe were each given a pair of buildings and asked to work blind, without knowing what the others were designed. The result is a provocative diversity of color and form in a new neighbourhood devoted to design, art, tech, craft, and music. In this kind of undefined and evolving context, devoid of urban references, the project defines two very pragmatic buildings – industrial containers that maximize the flexibility of the interior and explore the use of basic construction systems. The project plays with the imagination of an artist’s studio, emphasizing the use of light in a workspace defined by large windows, double-height rooms, and certain raw materiality.

The glasshouse contains a small captive forest. Through various mechanical systems, it generates an artificial environment conditioned to recreate a fragment of tropical forest at a different latitude. Its inhabitants are a variety of plants, ferns, palm trees, orchids, mosses, small trees, and some insects that have found their new habitat in this controlled atmosphere.

Reactivation of Plaza del Carme / unparelld’arquitectes

April 20, 2022 Agustina Coulleri 0

Shopping is an integral part of the street. Improving the vitality, comfort, and safety of the public space was done by fostering occupancy of closed shops and emphasizing relationships through the shop windows. That was the task developed on the street in the project, Good morning, Carme! (Olot, 2021). In a single year, 1000 m² of shops were opened and 120 m of façade were redesigned in a single square in the old town.

Casa HR / o2 Arquitectos

April 17, 2022 Agustina Coulleri 0

The development of the project for this single-family home in the Golf de Las Condes neighborhood was a great challenge due to the difficult shape of the lot, with a front of just over 5 meters and an irregular L-shaped geometry that widened towards the rear. The location of the house had to be arranged making the most of the spaces, meeting the need for parking and trying to leave a more private garden area, separated from the access.

Che’ Che’ House / Javier Puga Estudio

April 14, 2022 Agustina Coulleri 0

“Casa Che’Che” creates cool and shady atmospheres that respond to the climate of Merida. The main intention in thinking and designing this house was to ensure that freshness abounded in every space and that’s how it was born: “Che’Che’” means freshness in Mayan.
