Bamboo Gateway in Guizhou The Zhuhai National Park is located in the region of Chishui, in Guizhou province, in South-West China. The 10,000 hectares park is characterized by the unique presence of the so-called Bamboo Sea. The park gateway has been designed by West-line studio architects as a dense assembly of vertical lines. The gate is hidden in the Bamboo Sea and interacts with the particular weather conditions of the area (sun, thick fog, rain, wind and snow) which make the architecture unstable and flexible. The gate aims to ‘activate’ the bamboo being at the same time hidden into the forest but also creating an iconic entrance for the park. Via See more ARCHy here.

Estate Bungalow in Sri Lanka The Estate Bungalow by Narein Perera sits almost on top of the raised terrain of a 17 ha estate, where the rubber plantation stops and the jungle begins. It’s selected and elevated siting allows an undisturbed view of the estate, the valley below and the hills beyond, a view that is always in flux with the changing seasons and the cycle of the paddy cultivation. The bungalow serves to be a place where the client, a young entrepreneur, can oversee the functioning of the estate periodically and also as a get‐away for him, his family and friends. The client also wanted the flexibility to be able to rent out the bungalow to accommodate a clientele seeking to escape the busy life of the city, a place that would allow quiet rest.

DC Renovation by NADAAA The NADAAA studio renovated a brick house that dates from the 1920s. The building is located in Washington DC, on the edge of Rock Creek Park, which is one of the most picturesque parks in the city, an area protected since 1890 and the future home of the Obama family. The client wanted to double the usable space, but maintain the existing structure and visible brickwork that was part of the period construction. The project preserves the symmetric order of the windows on the principal façade that faces the street, but eliminates the pitched roof in order to carve out more space above while still remaining within the outline of the original structure. On the garden side, which descends towards the creek at the base of the park, the existing brick wall was pierced by more generous apertures, undermining its load-bearing capacity; steel structural elements were inserted to ensure its stability.
