Vertical Strip – A Hanging Tower in Las Vegas, Nevada by Stephan SOBL

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

Article source: Stephan SOBL

Cottage in Tsumari, Japan by Daigo Ishii + Future-scape Architects

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

Article source: Daigo Ishii + Future-scape Architects

A low-cost public cottage for locals and visitors, located within a beech woods park. This is the region with heaviest snowfall in Japan, often as deep as 4m.  It was an architecture in that two volumes were combined. One is the outward form Big Box. It was determined as the maximum volume possible from the budget with local details for withstanding heavy snow without maintenance in the winter, when the cottage becomes isolated. The big volume also enables comfortable stay in the summer.

Single-family house in Bohumilec, Czech Republic by Mimosa architects

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

Article source: Mimosa architects

Single-family house for a family of four into the surrounding of the small village Bohumileč in Pardubice region. Volume solution of the house comes out of the form of the rustic house with a saddle roof. Volume and material simplicity join the house with its natural and urban framework. The building “seeks to be” an unobtrusive, but after all expressive “resident” of the place. The motto of rural simplicity and severity infiltrate into the house from the ground substance to the detail.

Camp Arowhon Headquarters in Toronto, Canada by PLANT Architect

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

Article source: PLANT Architect

Camp Arowhon is a family-run summer camp in Algonquin Park now run by its third generation director. The owners purchased a 250 m2 two-story storefront building on Eglinton Avenue West to create a visual presence in the community, facilitate administration, and create a place which fosters a post-camp alumni community. The owners’ goal was to present a building that felt like “a piece of Algonquin Park in the city” evoking the character of camp, while wanting to avoid the typical camp imagery overused by spas and clothing retailers. The character was established instead through the use and detailing of materials: using harvested raw and rough hewn wood from the park, and detailing it with a more polished, but simple elegance found in camp buildings.

“Panama Supercharge” is an architectural dialogue between mass and fragility, expressed as thin patterned developable surfaces out of metal sheets and heavy masses out of raw concrete. The building is adjacent to the new pair of locks at the Panama Canal, creating an environment for cruise ship passengers while they are waiting for the ship to pass the lock.

East 6th Street House in South Boston, MA by Touloukian Touloukian Inc.

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

Article source: Touloukian Touloukian Inc.

This speculative development was built on a rear parcel with restricted views to the street, code restricted openings for windows, and less desirable views of the adjacent lots. The design re-directs the focus to an interior environment with a sun filled “skylight stair hall” and “rear light shaft” that brings natural light to all corners of each floor.

House located on the west edge of the plains. In this district, Mt. Yahiko and Mt. Kakuda above sea level about 600m as regional landmarks stand between plains and the Sea of Japan. The client’s hope for the house was that, from the window, the client saw two mountains that used to seeing from the childhood.
