Ship-like Hidden Pavilion uses the surrounding forest like a protective envelope

Comments Off on Ship-like Hidden Pavilion uses the surrounding forest like a protective envelope

This ship-like pavilion in Spain reconciles the openness of glass architecture and the need for privacy. Penelas Architects designed the Hidden Pavilion as a quiet retreat that protects its occupants not through the use of curtains or blinds, but by treating the surrounding forest as a kind of natural envelope. The pavilion is nestled in a forest glade just northwest of Madrid, Spain . Its isolated location allowed the architects to completely open up the building toward the surroundings and draw maximum natural light into its interior. Designed to become one with nature, the building incorporates an existing 200-year-old oak tree, along with younger trees, to grow through gaps in its terraced areas. Related: Kengo Kuma unveils “blossoming” glass and timber villas for Bali With a floor space of 753 square feet spread over two floors, the pavilion includes a veranda and a rooftop terrace that overlook the surrounding forest. Natural materials , steel and glass are combined to create a kind of industrial appearance of an ocean liner that, instead of oceans, navigates the lush landscapes of central Spain. + Penelas Architects Via New Atlas Photos by Miguel de Guzmán + Rocio Romero

Comments Off on Casa Sanchez combines urban living with the lush Bolivian rainforest

Looking like a modest, one-story building when seen from the road, the Sanchez House actually boasts three spacious floors that offer stunning views of the Bolivian Amazon. Young Bolivian architect Juan Carlos Menacho designed the residence, named after its owners, to fit perfectly into a sloping site in Santa Cruz de la Sierra in eastern Bolivia. The 10,674-square-foot house is located in an exclusive gated community in Santa Cruz, and was designed to provide shade and protect from the region’s tropical sun. It utilizes the sloping site to create an illusion of small scale. Its wings are designed around the existing trees, with each room enjoying views of the surrounding greenery. Related: Bolivia’s Ecolodge del Lago takes inspiration from traditional Lak’a Uta architecture Several sustainable features incorporated into the design of the residence, including rainwater harvesting and the use of natural building materials , ensure an eco-friendly performance. The location itself combines urban living and proximity to nature. + Juan Carlos Menacho

Comments Off on Green-roofed Torquay House provides sanctuary in a less-than-secluded neighborhood

A concrete facade conceals a secluded courtyard that leads up to the glazed entrance door. From this point on, a variety of large, open spaces unravel and blur the line between the interior and the central courtyard. A double-height gallery space is glazed on one side to reveal the plan that wraps around the courtyard and draw northern light and breezes through the house. Related: Solar-powered Bush House exemplifies chic eco-friendly living in the Australian outback A series of rooftop gardens , along with greenery draping off the deep concrete eaves give a verdant feel to the entire house. A rich palette of natural and metallic elements, including fine timber battening and brass detailing, creates patterns and provides warmth that counterpoints the rugged quality of the concrete . + Auhaus Architecture Via Uncrate Photos by Derek Swalwell

Comments Off on Ukraine’s leafy green ‘Tunnel of Love’ is a passageway for trains and lovers

Image via Bored Panda We love seeing natural architecture here at Inhabitat, and the leafy green Kleven train tunnel is a beautiful example of what happens when nature is allowed to grow freely around manmade infrastructure. Image via YouTube The tunnel was made over many years as the passing train molded the trees’ lines. The train turned a luscious piece of woodland into a unique passageway as it traveled back and forth 3 times a day over several years. Photo © Oleg Gordienko In addition to serving as a train route, the tunnel is used by lovers to make a wish – it is said that if they are sincere in their love, their wishes will come true. If you are out and about Ukraine , don’t miss this fantastic green passageway – whether you are with a loved one, or on your own.
