Today we will show you the beautiful Casa Moon in Peninsula de Osa, Costa Rica, a project by ROBLESARQ. This is a very nice and unique house. The shapes, interior design, colors and materials are great. Certainly a nice place to live. Make sure to check out ROBLESARQ website for further inspiring projects. See you next week :)
Glasshouse Conference Centre in Australia
The Glasshouse is the new center for art and culture of Port Macquarie in Australia. The project, beyond the center of Conferences, includes an art gallery, a theater and a community workshop place. The project was executed by the group Tonkin Zulaikha Greer Architects.
The design of the building was projected to explore the views of the Pacific Ocean, using large glass windows and even brises to control the sunlight. The building interiors seems to be very cozy and quiet in the conference rooms and theater. The way the acoustics was worked in this building, with a caution on each wooden board, seems to be fantastic! For sure this is a building that I want to visit when I go to Australia.
The exterior building expression is generated by the contrasting orders of the city grid and the voluminous form of the theater shell, with it’s level 3 echo, the glass ’skirt’ cantilevering over Clarence Street. - TZG Architects
Inside, the cultural elements are slightly overlapped to mix, rather than isolate, the activities. For instance, the gallery shares the same foyer space as the theater, allowing the exhibitions to fill all the public spaces of the building. - TZG Architects
