EX-CONTAINER Project in Japan by Yasutaka Yoshimura Architects

Wednesday, April 20th, 2011

EX-CONTAINER is a temporary housing can be converted into permanent one.

This is a pre-fablicated house which is completed in the factory including interior and exterior. By using ISO shipping container module, we can realize same quality as permanent housing with temporary housing costs. Conventional temporary housing must be removed within 2 years, but after being used temporally in public spaces like parks and school playgrounds, EX-CONTAINER can be transfered to a new site and reuse as a permanent housing. EX-CONTAINER is a reasonable alternative for the disaster victims who do not have money to spare. For more information please go to our website: http://exc.ysmr.com/

Jackhammer in Philadelphia by Plumbob

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

First LEED-H Gold Residential/Commercial live/work space in the City of Philadelphia

Formerly a convenience store and significant loitering/drug dealing corner property, neighbors seemed pleased when it caught on fire and was demolished in 2005. The architects felt it was important to restore the life and sense of community to this small but unique corner of Fishtown. While only 14’-0” wide and barely a 700 sf site footprint, they managed to create a vibrant, light-filled commercial space on the ground floor and basement as well as one residential dwelling on the 2nd and 3rd floors with a large green roof.

Party Hall in Cortes, Leiria by José Marini Bragança Architect

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

The building provides a strong relationship with its natural surroundings. To minimise its visual impact, the building is raised up from the ground. The glass, its predominant material, brings its inside and outside closer together. Both the ceiling and the inside floor paving white colour intends to visually frame the landscape. The support bathroom stands as a unique element to destabilise the whole proposal serenity, with the red of its inside fittings as a counterpoint to the whole building white colour.

  • Architects:José Marini Bragança & Helena Veludo
  • Project: Party Hall
  • Location: Cortes, Leiria
  • Project Team, Preliminary Study: Carla Sousa

Box House in Boulder, Colorado by Studio H:T Architect (designed using Autodesk Revit)

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

Steep site, wildfire prone area, prominent location, compelling views.  A concrete ribbon carves the hillside to create space for the boxes.  The garage and main level push into the earth while the studio and master float above.  A spatial slot organizes procession from the northern car-park to the southern courtyard.  Courtyards form introverted space that perceptually enlarge the interior.  Roof decks are extroverted, capitalizing on  views.  The dialog between grounded and floating permeates the design in materiality and attachment.

  • Project: Box House
  • Location: Boulder, Colorado
  • Photographer: Ellen Jasksol
