Built on a steep slope in Cornelio Procopio, a town in the southern part of Brazil, Casa AS takes advantage of the site’s topography to construct two levels featuring a series of spaces encompassed between 7,5 meter high walls, which protect the owner’s privacy needed in a the center of the city. With a total surface of 565 square meters, the modern residence was designed by Studio Guilherme Torres, well known for their residential projects like the GT House or Casa SF. Displaying wooden garage doors and part of the upper floor, the front facade is closed to the passers-by, but the backside captures sunlight straight from above.

The two floors of the house are arranged around a central courtyard with an inviting swimming pool with palm trees mirroring on the water surface. Cumaru wood floors adorn the corridors shaped of white concrete walls. Black and white act as the charming color palette duo, with warm wood tones breaking the monotony here and there. Sliding doors keep a permanent connection to the outside space, managing to create an urban oasis of open, bright spaces. What other solutions for a warmer, greener outside space can you think of in this specific situation?

What is new and exciting now can quickly begin to look tired and out of fashion, so the best buildings don’t just consider what will be interesting to look at now, but also how it might look to people in five, fifty or even a hundred years’ time. 2013’s hotly contested RIBA Stirling Prize went to Witherford Watson Mann Architects for their work on Astley Castle, Warwickshire. In what RIBA Past President Stephen Hodder has described as an extreme retrofit, the project essentially saw a new building inserted subtly into the heart of the old, with a new, two storey residence now hidden within the sandstone walls of the ruins of this medieval castle, to be used as a holiday home for up to eight guests

Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts
