Developed as studios for Portugal’s public service broadcasting company RTP, these three individual buildings have been realised by a Lisbon-based architect Frederico Valsassina. Surrounded by an extensive green space, the development comprises two monolithic concrete volumes (studios) and a printed glass-clad building which houses offices of administrative services. (more…)

'Tree House' by Mount Fuji Architects, photo by Ken'ichi Suzuki

The Tokyo based architectural practice Mount Fuji Architects Studio realised this house, including a studio, for a young couple in a typical residential area in the north of Tokyo. Located on a small and dusky lot the building’s construction is based on the geometry of a “polar coordinates system”, in which each point on the plane is determined by a distance and angle from a fixed pole – in this case a big tree-like central column.

The New York based practice Andrew Berman Architect realised this copper cladded library and writing studio for a historian in Long Island in 2008.

Here is what the architects explain:

“The site is adjacent to the client’s home, and is approached on foot through a stand of trees. There is no drive or path. The library sits at the threshold of an open field and a wood. A tidal stream is visible through the woods, at the rear of the site.

The building was conceived as a simple structure with a mutable presence in the landscape. It maps a path from the open field, through a doorway at the edge of the woods, to a light filled space set in the tree canopy.

The interior is defined by douglas fir, books, and light. The exterior, clad in copper, shifts in apparent form and color depending on the light of the day, the viewing angle, and the seasons. The copper can appear reflective and bright, as well as matte and dark. The velvety browns and violets will slowly give way to green.”

“Photographer’s Studio and Boat House on Stoney Lake is a reimagination of the archetypal glass house in a landscape. A continuation of thinking about this architectural ambition, the central conceit of the glass house is reconceived through a contemporary lens of sustainability, program, site and amenity. The compelling qualities of simple, open spaces; interior and exterior unity; and material clarity are transformed to enhance the environmental and programmatic performance of the building, creating an architecture of both iconic resonance and innovative context–driven design.”

“The program envisions a building as north–facing window: a photographer’s live/work studio that is continuously bathed in diffused and undiminished natural light. The transparent facade, a continuous curtain wall glazed in Cradle to Cradle-certified Starphire glass, becomes the essential element in a photographic apparatus to produce images unobtainable in a conventional studio. The availability and fidelity of north–facing light in the double-height space provide the photographer with unparalleled natural illumination, while the clarity of the glazing transforms the site and surrounding vistas into a sublime, ever-changing backdrop.”
