Catamount house in Colorado Springs by Indie Architecture

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

This house is a contemporary version of an Earthship, an ecologically benign house type popularized in the 1970s by Mike Reynolds, founder of Earthship Biotecture. The original Earthships were bermed into the ground to take advantage of the soil’s thermal mass, had relatively thin plans with extensive glazing on the south facing facade, walls made of old tires filled with dirt, PVs, and food gardens just inside the windows. They were intended to be self-sustaining living units, free of cities and their heavy infrastructure.

The Shingle House: NORD – the making of

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

The Shingle House replaces a dilapidated fisherman’s cottage at Dungeness in Kent. The cottage was known locally as The Smokery, since, like most of the fishing families in the area, the owner smoked and sold local fish from the site. On his retirement, the owner offered to sell the house and outbuildings to Living Architecture, presenting the team with an ideal opportunity to create a new house on the site, whilst respecting the historical significance of the area.

Museum of Polish History in Warsaw by Vlado Valkof

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011


The proposed hybrid structure of the Museum of Polish History (MPH) located in Warsaw, Poland, is a footbridge, park and building, all three integrated and coherent with the surrounding park environment. Vlado Valkof’s proposal for the MPH facility is a synergy of nature and history and was inspired by the Polish topography of gently rolling fields and plains. Valkof wanted to create a Museum of History dug underground where the local historical values are naturally preserved. The morphology of MPH was influenced by the idea of history as a process of constant transformation. Presented here is only current portion of that continuous process.

The Syncline House in Boulder, Colorado by Arch 11

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

 

Project update on May 26, 2011 – Arch11 has won four 2011 Watermark Awards in Builder Magazine’s annual competition. They won the competition’s overall Project of the Year for the Syncline house, built with construction partner Hammerwell, Inc., also of Boulder.  Additional awards for the Syncline project included Grand Prize, Kitchen in a Custom Home—3,000 to 5,000 square feet; an Award of Merit for Powder Room in a Custom Home; and an Award of Merit for Master Bath in a Custom Home. The 2011 Watermark Awards winners are showcased in Builder Magazine’s May issue and the story runs online with slideshows of the winning projects.
=======================================

Original article from February 15, 2011

The new 4,800-square-foot half-glass home on a cul de sac just above Boulder¹s downtown would seem to be a mighty contradiction. The owners, a former professional rock climber and the U.S. distributor of Australian-designed outdoor gear, Shelley and Andrew Dunbar, wanted an energy efficient home on their lot abutting Open Space and Mountain Park-protected land. But did it really make environmental sense to raze the existing 1,600-square-foot A-frame and build a new structure three times as large?

With Arch 11 ­ a firm drawn to developing projects with “impossible” sites, budgets, and structural parameters ­ in charge, the answer is yes.
