Ottmers Residence in rural Gillespie County, Texas by Vincent Snyder Architects

Friday, August 19th, 2011

Article source: Vincent Snyder Architects

Ottmers House is a 2,200 sq-ft contemporary home located on an ancestral family ranch in the Texas Hill Country, near Fredericksburg. In keeping with ranching tradition, a young couple with two children of modest means expressed their desire to construct their own home. The design started from the reuse of a foundation slab located adjacent to an existing vernacular structure. Following ranching tradition, work on the home is envisioned as a continuous process based on resource availability rather than a finalized object. For this reason, standardized wood frame construction was interwoven within a series of heavier timber members to facilitate ease of client labor and modification.

Alvik Tower in Stockholm, Sweden by C. F. Møller Architects

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

Article source: C. F. Møller Architects

Alviks torn is a sculptural housing complex designed to bring identity to the district – and thereby, to Stockholm. The site lies in a prominent location towards the archipelago, and forms a transition zone between the city and the landscape, which has inspired the architecture. The development – a fractured block of approximately nine storeys and a landmark 21-storey tower divided into two parts – draws its shape and lines from the steepness and structure of the mountains bordering the lake Mälaren.
