Holiday House in Cap Ferret / Atelier du Pont

May 9, 2020 Daniel Tapia 0

The terrain that slopes gently towards the sea is typical of Cap Ferret: a small forest of strawberry tree, yucca, and pines. The challenge was to design a project that would exist in harmony with its surrounding landscape and have a limited impact on the existing vegetation.

Maineville Residence / John Senhauser Architects

February 14, 2020 Daniel Tapia 0

Located on a family property, the hillside site provides multiple civil engineering challenges with a very modest budget. The brief was quite typical suggesting three bedrooms, 2 ½ baths, kitchen/dining/living, support spaces, a two plus car garage and a studio. The client, a self-taught artist, and furniture maker, personally furnish and installed the cabinetry and hardwood floor.

House L224 / Felipe Gonzalez Arzac

February 5, 2020 Daniel Tapia 0

As an initial idea we try to achieve a single image, and try to manifest the concept of the free plant. Free Floor with large glass windows, which hold a wooden box, suspended on two large concrete lines. The ground floor contains the collective and public program of the house, living room, bathroom, laundry room, kitchen. The kitchen is housed in a small wooden box, which hides the structure of the house inside.

Metro at Western Housing / the architects collective

February 3, 2020 Daniel Tapia 0

Located in close proximity to the MTA Exposition Line Expo / Western station, the project is situated along a bustling commercial corridor of neighborhood-serving mom-and-pop shops on Western Blvd. The project illustrates a diagrammatic approach to design, starting with the essential building blocks of the program, which are then shaped by the external constraints that act upon it. The project provides 16 two- and three-bedroom units for families and 16 one-bedroom units for homeless veterans.

Domo Riñihue House / Domo Habitare + Piffardi Aravena Arquitectos

We were facing a great challenge given the majesty and vastness of this remote landscape. We were in the first need to generate a degree of order to face the project, which is why we decided to make a contrast to this immeasurable nature, proposing a location that conquers both the longitudinal and the transverse, giving an order to the program.
