Ground and Above Roof House in Ibaraki-shi, Japan by SPACESPACE

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

Article source: SPACESPACE

A house situated in the residential area and near railway station and is built on the corner lot located one lot behind the main street. The house site borders the streets on the north and the east, and in the east (a longer adjacent to the street) there are a T-junction and an open car park on a culvert. This is an area of having a peculiar atmosphere of openness, where signboards and pot plants stick out into the street and there are many long-term residents, who are often seen chatting on the street. This house site is a gspecial spot of district designated under the zoning regulation, as there is a change in the zoning near the border of the next-door house site, which enable the house to be built slightly higher than the next-door house of the south.

max62 – A Nuilding* in Rotterdam, Netherlands by Maxwan

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

Article source: Maxwan

* NUILDING  is pronouncesd as  newl-ding

I look out of the window of our office on de 5th floor of a sixties 50.000 m2 mail-order storage facility. I’m only 20 meters tall but almost nothing blocks my view. I can clearly see the cars on the lifted A20 highway, 500 meters from here, as it cuts through the surrounding industrial area. Further ahead of me stand the 3 Europoint Towers. A bit to the left, the infamous Rotterdam skyline, that somehow only impresses when seen from the Brienenoord-bridge shortly after sundown, during rush-hour, if the sky is partly cloudy … Immediately below and in front of me i see only roofs of halls. It seems that during the time this area was developed all work was done in 6 m high spaces.

Mintzer Residence in Laguna Beach, California by Horst Architects

Friday, August 12th, 2011

Article source: Horst Architects

Carefully sited to embrace a large rock outcropping on a hillside site in Laguna Beach, California. The design of this project began from an initial conversation between owner and the architect while standing together on the site. They imagined a design, which through it’s materiality and physical lightness, would lead to a clear mediation between the structure and the site. The conversation evolved into a metaphorical narrative of two wooden shipping containers which fell onto the site from a cargo plane, one laying horizontally and the other standing vertically on the site.
