Protected from wind and overheating by wooden slats that also filter natural light reaching the interiors, the single-story residential structure was meant to be a second house, defined by comfort and focusing on relaxation. Found in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia, the holiday home was simply named “The Shelter”, hinting towards its ability to offer a secluded retreat from urban life. Part of the portfolio of multidisciplinary KG Studio + Asociados, it floats a meter above ground, with internal spaces distributed along a central spine that reinforces the passive bioclimatic architectural criteria. A transitional space constructed of the protective wooden screens helps protect the privacy of public and intimate spaces, at the same time opening the rooms to the outside landscape, offering interrupted panoramas. Sliding doors ensure a strong connection between inside and outside, generating an alluring bond without exposing interiors to the harsh climate. Elegant in its apparent simplicity, this home proves to be an inspiring solution to location-specific conditions.

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

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
