Article source: Benthem Crouwel Architekten

The house is one of ten prize-winning designs in a competition, subscri­bed in 1982 in Almere. The brief for the competition was: design a house without bordering for building rules and -restrictions (that is: other than basic structural- and fire prevention-demands). The prize: free use of a building site for a period of 5 years (costs of building for competitors), leaving no traces on site after 5 years. This last restriction was starting-point for a quick design-exercise, starting at 5 am at the last day of entry, with a last minute entry at 4 pm.

166 Perry Street in New York by Asymptote Architecture

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Article source: Asymptote Architecture

On Manhattan’s West Side, a collection of newly designed buildings are redefining the western edge of the West Village on the Hudson River, a trend kick started by Richard Meier’s glass and steel towers sitting alongside the West Side Highway. Asymptote Architecture was commissioned to build a new entry into the mix of high-end condominium projects situated on low-key residential streets among mid-twentieth-century building stock. Asymptote’s project at 166 Perry Street adjoins the first of Meier’s three towers and is simultaneously an antidotal design and a formal and tectonic play off of Meier’s buildings.

Residence at Punkunnam in Kerala, India by Lijo Reny Architects

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Article source: Lijo Reny Architects

The compound wall is a simple contemporary design, which breaks at two points, on either side of the site, to form horizontal openings that give a glimpse of the serene landscape within. The compound wall was designed in this fashion so that it compliments the building within it. It accommodates two entries to the site, a vehicular gate & a wicket gate. The wicket gate stands under a gateway that which is totally contemporary and a very good example of how traditional elements can be used in a modern context. The gateway connects the compound wall to the house visually, a point that is missed in most of the houses today.
