The Manta Underwater Room / Genberg Underwater Hotels

The Manta Underwater Room / Genberg Underwater Hotels | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

Imagine yourself encapsulated within a turquoise blue bubble, watching shoals of reef fish swimming lazily by - sometimes in three or four layers of different species above the reef floor. This is the heart-stopping experience that awaits you in the underwater room. The floating structure, Swedish engineered, provides three levels, those above the water clad in local hardwood, and each an experience in itself...

A Tiny, DIY Trailer Home Built by a Couple on a Budget

A Tiny, DIY Trailer Home Built by a Couple on a Budget | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it
A young couple on the move build a small home that will go wherever life takes them.

Brian and Joni Buzarde's 236-square-foot trailer has made upward mobility possible, having moved with them from Austin, Texas, to the Rocky Mountains hamlet of Marble, Colorado.

They started by purchasing a 26-foot-long flatbed chassis for about $7,000 and then bolted on walls made from structural insulated panels—foam insulation sandwiched between sections of oriented strand board.

Inside, the dominant material is birch-veneer plywood—a modern choice, versatile enough to serve as walls, floor, ceiling, and kitchen cabinets. The place is full of tiny-house efficiencies: There’s a loft bed, a half-size refrigerator, and eight-inch-deep storage compartments built into the floor. The bathtub is a galvanized-steel cow trough, and a closet area omits a formal dresser in favor of hanging baskets. A large sliding-glass door cuts down on interior storage possibilities but adds  natural brightness, enhanced by two skylights.

Ship Shape: Inhouse Designs a Shipping Container Office For Ad Agency Ninety9Cents

Ship Shape: Inhouse Designs a Shipping Container Office For Ad Agency Ninety9Cents | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

At Cape Town’s advertising agency Ninety9Cents, the architecture firm Inhouse put in its 2 cents—in the form of the reception area’s shipping container. It’s lined with OSB and furnished to serve as a waiting lounge for clients from the likes of Checkers and Puma. That’s all a nod not only to the harbor, seen from the windows, but also to the creative solutions the agency sends around the globe. The other major intervention is less symbolic than pragmatic. A bleacher-style structure that also houses the kitchen acts as a communication hub for the 200-strong staff, split between three office levels...

Margot Krasojevic Turns Snow Cave Shelters into Practical, Impossible Art

Margot Krasojevic Turns Snow Cave Shelters into Practical, Impossible Art | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

Margot Krasojevic's latest proposal, a mesh shelter that takes the concept of snow caves and applies it to an artificial structure, is built for an eminently practical purpose: a built emergency shelter for climbers and others caught in extreme conditions.

The elaborate, high tech and naturally contoured structure is as much a thought experiment as it is a serious architectural proposal, with the carbon fibre mesh acting as a snow-catcher, forming a frame for a large snow drift. The captured snow works as both building material and insulation, allowing for the creation of a shelter of several rooms. Inside sits a wooden frame suspended from the mesh and attached to the landscape by climbing ropes, which avoid freezing by swaying. This frame can have canvases attached to it, and contains cell-like modules that would act as sleeping areas...

Catch the Views House by LAND Arquitectos

Catch the Views House by LAND Arquitectos | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

Catch the Views House by LAND Arquitectos:

“Catch the Views House is originated from an intention of capturing and framing the different existing views at the inside spaces toward the sea and surrounding landscape. To achieve this initial objective, plus considering the strong slope of the site, we arrange and stacked one above the other a set of volumes directed to the selected views from a previous view-shed study. Arranging the interior and exterior program in relation with sunlight and wind exposure, and interconnectedness of the spaces.

The volumes are stacked one above the other, remembering how randomly shoreline rocks are stacked in this coastal landscape. We use a similar color from the rocks too, a dark grey, for the exterior facades of the house.

For the house structure, we use a system of prefabricated concrete panels, with a high isolation performance, which also reduces construction time. Material selection criteria were based on the performance, durability and maintenance of the materials in harsh coastal environments.”

Concrete + Context: Winery Pavilion at Leura Park by Centrum Architects

Concrete + Context: Winery Pavilion at Leura Park by Centrum Architects | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

This winery pavilion near the southern tip of Australia was conceived by Melbourne's Centrum Architects as a massive lantern to draw curious visitors.

A unique form was a priority from the beginning. For inspiration, the architects turned to the estate’s name – “leura” is derived from the Aboriginal word for lava – and from the unusual wrinkled rock formations found in pahoehoe lava flows. In their interpretation, the design team imagined the roof and western wall as a shell composed from four sections of curving high-performance concrete that rise from the ground before folding over, propped up with angled steel columns. Although initially conceived for off-site prefabrication, it ultimately proved faster and more economical to cast the sections in situ.

Inside, the thickness of the exposed concrete walls provides excellent thermal massing, which allowed Centrum to rely on passive cooling and ventilation, forgoing the need for mechanical and water systems.

A Concept Twin-Tower Skyscraper In Hong Kong

A Concept Twin-Tower Skyscraper In Hong Kong | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

Mexican design firm Studio Cachoua Torres Camilletti has designed and developed an ambitious concept that reimagines skyscrapers. 
The concept is 92-stories-high and consists of two parts—for housing and for commerce, linked by bridges. The architects also have an unusual plan to install rice paddies on the roof. 
One of the architects, Adrian Cachoua Oropeza explained that “the farming on the top of the building is an important symbolic gesture as well as an environmental one,” as rice is a staple in Asian countries.
This idea was submitted for the 2014 World Architecture Festival.

Unique Solar Protection + A Dynamic Facade in Australia

Unique Solar Protection + A Dynamic Facade in Australia | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

 In Bunbury, down the coast from Perth in Australia, the architects at Gresley Abas seized the mission of modernizing a homeless shelter as an opportunity to clad the original building in a colourful and dynamic facade – using metal screens. On completion of the building work, Yanget House now houses 37 apartments as well as stores and offices on the first and second floors which generate rental income that goes toward financing the project.
Colt perforated panels provide solar protection on the east side.


Artist Rick Verney specially designed a 3D relief of projecting, angular elements that seem both transparent and sculptural thanks to the characteristic perforation pattern. The “shadow metal” consists of powder-coated anodized aluminum – the perforation pattern on the screens is not just a key design element, but also ensures light transmission and the passage of energy. The customized design thus spawned both sun shading and an unusually textured dynamic façade that is as good as unmistakable.

These conceptual three-legged structures by Najjar & Najjar Architects would allow Beirut fisherman to reclaim the coastline and generate electricity.

Najjar & Najjar Architects propose installing the kinetic Iris structures along Beirut's shoreline to provide elevated shelters that also harness the movement of the waves to generate power. Studio founders Karim and Rames Najjar believe the structures would help locals retain public access to the seafront, which has been dominated by private development in recent years.

Pedestrian Bridge in Aranzadi Park / Peralta Ayesa Arquitectos + Opera ingeniería | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

This project consists of, on the one hand, the construction of a pedestrian bridge to improve access between the park and the city and, on the other hand, the construction of some sheds, in the park’s fruit and vegetable garden area, to serve as storage spaces for the garden concessionaires.

The bridge forms a part of the geometric design of the pedestrian and bicycle paths and the water and river systems. At the same time, it creates an ideal spot for visitors and an observation point from the bridge to view the park from the city...

Copenhagen's 'Bicycle Snake': Aiming to Become the Best Cycling City in The World

Copenhagen's 'Bicycle Snake': Aiming to Become the Best Cycling City in The World | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

The Ambitious Cykelslangen by DISSING+WEITLING enables Copenhagen's vision to become the best cycling city in the world by the end of 2015.

The 235-meter-long orange snake meanders 5.5 meters high above sea level from Havneholmen through the mall Fisketorvet, ending at Kalvebod Brygge. This “snake” is actually a ramp and a bridge, called the “Cykelslangen — The Bicycle Snake,” that provides more than 12,000 bicyclists with a safe route through this busy district every day.

The architecture firm DISSING+WEITLING was asked to design a ramp to replace a nearby staircase. Instead of just designing a simple ramp, they went a step further and designed a bridge. The result is a destination and focal point that can be seen for miles from the air and has also completely transformed the area for all who enjoy it.

Underground Culture: Designing A Museum for Los Angeles' Historic District | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

Downtown Los Angeles’s historic core is about to get its first major museum, if that’s what you want to call it. Local developer Tom Gilmore and architect Tom Wiscombe are teaming up on the complex project, which they are calling the Old Bank District Museum. It will be dedicated to contemporary Los Angeles art and located in the sub-basements, basements, ground floors, mezzanines, and roofs of three interconnected buildings along Main and Fourth streets.

“We’re going beyond the frontier of street level,” said Tom Wiscombe, principal at Tom Wiscombe Architecture and a professor at SCI-Arc. Gilmore, founder of Gilmore Associates, who has been a major player in the resurrection of the Bank District, calls the project “insanely organic.”
