Napa River House by Craig Steely Architecture

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

The Napa River House is located on a site with mature oak trees and stone pathways winding down a gently sloping hill. To avoid disturbing the paths and root structure of the trees, a single footing and tube frame (inspired by a chairlift tower) will float the main living area in the oak canopy.

Wissioming Residence in Bethesda, Maryland by Robert Gurney Architect

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

This house located in Glen Echo, Maryland is sited on a heavily wooded lot overlooking the Potomac River. Glen Echo stands as a rare enclave of modern houses in suburban Washington, DC. The new house occupies the footprint of a pre-existing house in an effort to minimally disturb the site, removing no mature hardwoods in the process. A new swimming pool is suspended twenty feet above grade to further reduce the impact to the steeply sloping site.

Zabbara shop in Turin, Italy by UAU Office

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

Untraditional mention to Sicily are the strengths of this project that brings a piece of the island into San Salvario district. The shop is conceived as a bright and cosy space, where quality and tastes find their proper place. Interior design is the direct consequence of a deeper reflection upon mood and colours: the agaves reference (Zabbara in Sicilian local dialect) is clear and globally used on the whole identity project.

FP House in Belo Horizonte, Brasil by Joao Diniz

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

The Pampulha lagoon in Belo Horizonte is full of architectural significance and to build on its margins means to be close to the modernist legacy. The building considers that recent history but also expresses its modern urban spirit with rural balconies and breezes.The land slope dialogues with the building and proposes fittings and suspensions.

Harkavy Residence in Potomac, Maryland by Robert M. Gurney Architect

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

This house of 2900 square feet is located on a one acre, wooded lot, adjacent to park land outside of Washington, DC. The house is sited away from the road and oriented toward views deep into the woods. The sequence of entry is defined by a series of walls, intended to privatize and delineate the approach and entry into the house. The walls, garage volume and house become a threshold between the road and the wooded parkland.

Cottages at Fallingwater in Mill Run, Pennsylvania by Patkau Architects

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

The retained meadowland above Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater is the site of six new cottages. The meadow, which is a fragment of a ‘recent’ cultural landscape, provides a complimentary experience to the surrounding native forest from which to appreciate and understand both native ecology and cultural history. It opens a clearing in the forest; a clearing that establishes the possibility of a sustainable relationship between human occupancy, site and sun.
