Esplanade de la Défense by Claudio Cerasoli.

In Focus. [PAR] France.
metalocus, INÉS LALUETA.
La Défense in Paris is one of the largest business district in Europe: its construction begun in 1958 under President De Gaulle. In this story or photo essay by Claudio Cerasoli, shows the double face of this project: the creation of a new financial city as a brand image for the city of Paris and the discontinuity of real life.

The "cold" with which life happens in this new district is categorically reflected in the images by Claudio Cerasoli, and in the following words:

Exploring La Défense you can experience a sensation of emptyness: movement and chaos are confined to shops, commercial buildings and metro stations. Besides that is like floating in an uncertain reality, in the model of a...

Knot House unfolds by Atelier Chang.

Resort [Geoje Island] South Korea.
metalocus, ÁNGEL BLANCO
How can architecture achieve seamless spatial connection between outdoor landscape and indoor living space without boundary? To answer that question, we have to stop separating the building versus the ground. Rather, imagine a surface that originates from the landscape, which eventually forms a knot to create an enclosure. The wild landscape floods into the terrace, generates patterns of the herb garden, and gradually reaches the interior in a seamless manner. The project brings multiple advantages from the real-estate point of view. At first, multiple units can be built for ownership as well as for hospitality to generate constant income. Many years after, they can be easily converted and sold as residential units. The design itself takes account of adaptability throughout the life span of the building.

The Knot House introduces a new ecological lifestyle by combining farming and culture of tea. In the terrace garden, one can pick up fresh herbs to bring in to the house and make fresh tea for relaxation. It brings a small pleasure of production for the city dwellers who are only used to consume. Where the garden ends is a bathtub that submerges into the same landscape. The water used for bathing feeds back into the by watering the herb garden throughout the...

The Subiaco Oval Courtyard by Luigi Rosselli Architects.

[Perth] Australia
metalocus, ÁNGEL BLANCO.
Luigi Rosselli Architects has completed a house in Perth, Australia. Viewed from the street this unassuming family home hides a secret; a cluster of interconnected pavilions with an oval courtyard garden at their centre. Beyond the verandah there is an agglomeration of single rooms, aligned with the square geometry of the block. Viewed from the street, this new family home has paid a courteous respect to the dominant early 1900‘s streetscape.

Luigi Rosselli Architects has designed a courtyard garden enclosed that is a magnet for all the rooms and activities of the house; and outdoor room immediately adopted by the family.  The Subiaco neighbourhood have also enthusiastically adopted the new house as the small scale of the pitched rooves, reinvented verandah, and the criss-cross pattern of the recycled brickwork have all been respectful to...

A game between the projected skin shades and the contained interior lights. Incube uses materials and space in different levels of texture of shadow and light.
