A-cero have designed the Balcony House, a single family house in Madrid, Spain. This single family house has an area of 952 m2 arranged on 3 levels and seated on an independent plot of 2000 m2 with a prime location in a natural environment, and only 14km from the city center. The furniture of the living room, like the kitchen, has been designed and built personalized for the customer, with high quality finishes. LED lighting is the protagonist in the interior, marking the architecture and creating lines that frame the spaces.
Midvale Courtyard House by Bruns Architecture:
It is located in Madison, Wisconsin, and consists of the addition of 840 square feet and modernizing the exterior of the structure.
“Balancing the introverted nature of a courtyard with the bold personality of an extrovert all while managing matters of privacy, this renovation builds on its solid mid-century roots.
The renovation and addition of Midvale Courtyard House adds a proper entry, elevated master suite, and covered parking, but also pierces and stretches the solid forms to create connection between indoor and outdoor spaces.”
Situated in Naples, Florida, this amazing luxurious property was recently designed by Harwick Homes.
Víctor Enrich ( Barcelona, February 20th, 1976 ). Born in a mid class family of both parents coming from the countryside was the only child for 21 years until his sister’s birth, Cristina, in 1997. Since very early years he manifests interest in music and starts receiving piano lessons even though as long as he grows up, geography, architecture and computers become the main pastimes after school. At the age of 18, he graduates and enters the Barcelona School of Architecture.
During his years in college, in the mid 90s, he strives to use computerised representation techniques to express his architectonic ideas. With time, the improvement of these techniques become a priority as he starts a business of 3D Architectural Visualisation.
For the following years he serves a vast range of architects based in Barcelona, mainly working in competitions. In 2006, and after 9 years of career, he decides to slow down, give way to the younger generations of 3D visualisation and start exploring himself and his new arising interest: Art.
A period of long journeys all over Europe, including long lasting stays in countries such as Latvia and Israel, begins, during which Víctor develops a higher consciousness about his inner creativity. Shyly, his first Artwork, and his first exhibitions show up.
Finally, in 2011, he sets up Art as his main and unique working activity which lasts until the present days.
In 2007, Zaha Hadid architects won a competition to develop the ‘Heydar Aliyev center‘ in the city of Baku, Azerbaijan, which would stand as the country’s primary building for hosting the former soviet nation’s cultural programs.
In realizing the majestic structure, Zaha Hadid has employed a sinuous geometry throughout the entirety of the design that sets it apart from the typically rigid and monumental soviet architecture that already defines Baku. historically, Islamic architecture consists of a composition of rows, grids or sequences of columns that collectively form a non-hierarchical space; while calligraphic and ornamental patterns flow from carpets and walls to ceilings to domes, establishing a seamless relationship between structural elements and the environment in which they are placed. it was the firm’s intention to take this understanding of architecture, and develop it not through mimicry or a limiting adherence to the iconography of the past, but as a contemporary interpretation of these points.
Recently designed by Wendy Zolezzi, this 8,000 sq ft beach front property is located in California.
