Designed and implemented by Apio Arquitectos in Lago Todos Los Santos, Chile, Casa LTS is surrounded by native forests, volcanoes and a beautiful lake. This contemporary dream retreat is located on a high slope edge on a rocky shore and was especially envisioned as a week-end residence for a small family. According to the architects, this site came with its unique challenges: “The terrain has over 1.5 meters (4.92 feet) of topsoil on its surface, which required us to have a strategy regarding the choice of materials and construction system, to facilitate water transport and installation by hand without the use of heavy machinery.”

“With these factors as preliminary conditions, coupled with the idea of respecting and intervening the natural terrain as little as possible, a construction system of pillars and steel beams was proposed, allowing us to perch above the line of relief and generate minimal contact points and foundations, thus avoiding the excavation of the hill”, the developing team further stated. The interiors are planned around a central living room, containing the dining area and kitchen. All the furniture units were created from the materials that remained after the completion of the building. A warm ambiance can be perceived throughout the rooms, due to extensive use of wood.

Value for money is not, and never was, the same as being cheap. Value for money means making the most of whatever budget is available. A good example of this is Hayes Primary School in London, by Hayhurst and Co. Having to contend with a tightly controlled 3 million local authority budget, they worked with the existing structure of the primary school to give it a much needed update. A striking polished stainless steel brise-soleil facade installed at the school’s entrance, gives the school’s many different buildings a sense of identity, while new classrooms have been created in a range of shapes and sizes, and are often flooded with natural light

An example of a huge success is Heneghan Peng Architects’ Giant’s Causeway Visitors’ Centre in Antrim, Northern Ireland. Using the large difference in level across the site, the architects created two folds in the landscape. Bold, but not conflicting with the rather bleak natural environment, these folds draw all the man-made areas together and create one fitting man-made break in the natural landscape. In the words of the architects themselves, There is no longer a building and a landscape, but building becomes landscape and the landscape itself remains spectacular and iconic
