Modular, Green Tree House Design in Portugal

Modular, Green Tree House Design in Portugal | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

Portuguese architects Luís Rebelo de Andrade and Tiago Rebelo de Andrade have realized a modular tree house for the Pedras Salgadas Park.

The innovative project challenges pre-established concepts associated with modular construction, making use of new technology and lightweight, flexible construction.

The materials gives a sense of connection with nature and establishes the symbiosis between house and Park. Native slate and wood promote integration within the site, as sustainability and ecology were significant concerns during the project development. Reinforced insulation, heating systems, water reuse, water solar panels, low consumption lighting (using LED technology) were among the strategies used...

Watch a House Go From Flatbed to Fully Built in Less Than a Day

Watch a House Go From Flatbed to Fully Built in Less Than a Day | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

If you're familiar with architect Richard Rogers, it's likely through buildings like the Pompidou Center and the London Shard, where the structure is put on display. But Rogers is also pioneering a new generation of flatpack prefab housing...

The 80-year-old architect is the subject of a retrospective at London's Royal Academy this summer; in the courtyard of the neoclassical building, curators invited Rogers and his team to build one of their three-story prefab housing units, which typically take less than 24 hours to construct. The architects explain the advantages on their website:

The panels have the advantage of being lightweight, very fire and water retardant, and even earthquake and hurricane proof. A patented jointing system ensures high levels of both acoustic and thermal insulation and the system offers the potential to reduce energy bills by up to 90%...

House at the Pyrenees: Vernacular Construction at a Contemporary Addition

House at the Pyrenees: Vernacular Construction at a Contemporary Addition | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

With their project ‘House at the Pyrenees’, Cadaval & Solà-Morales aimed at preserving the original structure of the house and doing a minimal yet contrasted intervention, the idea is to generate new and contemporary spaces for living, respecting the historic envelope.

 

The project seeks to recuperate the construction values of an old existing vernacular house which was made out of dry stone, a traditional technique of the area of great tectonic value. It elaborates on a series of interior horizontal partitions that are supported by two vertical containers that behave both as structural elements and as divisions of the continuous spaces...

Amazing architecture that fuses modern style with the exsisting style and preserves the original architecture of the house.

Caterpillar House: Contemporay Prefab Construction in Santiago, Chile

Caterpillar  House: Contemporay Prefab Construction in Santiago, Chile | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

This prefabricated house for an art collector and his family was built in the outskirts of Santiago in a new suburban residential area. In order to reduce construction time and costs, second hand shipping containers were used as follow: Five 40 “standard containers, Six 20“ standard containers and one 40“ open top container for the swimming pool.


The main purposes of the house were two: the first one was to integrate it to the territory of this part of the city where the presence of the Andes Mountain is extremely strong both visually and tectonically. The second one was to allow the external air to run smoothly and easily through the all house and its different parts In order to avoid mechanical cooling.
