DS19 House / Juncos & Asoc. Arquitectura

August 15, 2022 Andreas Luco 0

The central courtyard as the focal point and main center of the house was the basic idea of the project, around which all social and private daytime activities are developed. The pure and simple volumetry with white as the predominant color is the backdrop for the equipment and decoration.

‘This city is a point upon a map of fog’ Ambrose Bierce. The gridded hills of the city of San Francisco are a rolling topography of crystalline geometry which glisten in the Mediterranean light. Sweeping views from the Bay and hills are synoptic images that cement the city’s character. The exact order of repeating bays that line older streets reinforces this image at a more intimate scale.

Aegean Business Lounge / K-Studio

August 13, 2022 Andreas Luco 0

The new venue of Aegean Airlines was conceived drawing inspiration from the humble sculptural folk architecture of the Cyclades, reflecting on the cutting edge technology of airplanes, and was crowned with a sense of comfort, as originally seen in the air traveling the world. Curved, soft edges and shapes of flow interpreted in the deep Aegean sea blue convey the aesthetics and the dynamic of technology, borrowed from the culture of air traveling.

Al House / VPS Architetti

August 13, 2022 Andreas Luco 0

The farmhouse and guest quarters are located near the historic center of Castelmuzio, a small village in Val d’Orcia along the road leading to Pienza. It is nestled halfway up a hillside and looks towards the parish church of S. Anna in Camprena, a former 15th-century Benedictine Monastery. The original farm building, whose typological characteristics and construction methods seem to date to the second half of the 19th century, was subject to subsequent additions and alterations until the 1950s. The heterogeneity of these different elements was taken into account in determining a new and coherent spatial and functional program.

Entegra Offices / Battleiroig

In a strong commitment to innovation, the building has a charred wood façade that follows the Shou Sugi Ban method. This traditional Japanese technique consists of burning the outer layer of the wood, achieving a unique and attractive facade with great properties. Applying a controlled burning of the wood ensures excellent fireproof protection of the façade, as well as protection against humidity, solar radiation, and insect attack.

The existing building of the restaurant, a wooden structure built around 1970, was not meeting current technical or spatial requirements. We have designed a simple wooden structure for a new seasonal garden restaurant at the same place, in direct contact with water.

August 10, 2022 Andreas Luco 0

Beacon is a health-oriented commercial building that centers around a purpose-designed skin clinic. The building features three clinics [medical dermatology, aesthetic, and rheumatology] at the second story level, retail units at grade, on top of underground parking. Selected for its more robust qualities, concrete is used for the building base [underground and above ground], while wood is used as a primary inspiration to create a warm and welcoming space.
