Vila Castela Residence in Minas Gerais, Brazil by Anastasia Arquitetos (designed using AutoCAD)

Sunday, October 9th, 2011

Article source: Anastasia Arquitetos

Built in a sloped site (30 degrees) in the city of Nova Lima, Brazil, the house uses dramatic cantilevers to emphasize the extremity of its position. We have chosen this concept not only for aesthetic reasons, but above all to reduce the interference of the building mass in the topography, keeping the site as natural as possible.

Village House Proposal in Bratislava, Slovakia by CHYBIK+KRISTOF Associated Architects

Sunday, October 9th, 2011

Article source: CHYBIK+KRISTOF Associated Architects

CHYBIK+KRISTOF ASSOCIATED ARCHITECTS won an international architectural and urbanistic competition on 33 apartment buildings close to Bratislava. The project aims to create quality housing with direct contact with water surface. It also sets a considerable part of the house into the riparian forest in the river-bed of the Danube. “We have designed for each object a group of four materials which create together a common atrium as well as a scenic jetty near the water. The resulting combination of two- or three-floored buildings makes ideal conditions for social life inside each villa house whilst at the same time it provides enough privacy in each apartment. We do not design an ensemble of anonymous apartments but a PLACE with a bountiful view on water surface and with sojourning areas in the semi-private space.”

Scapehouse in Victoria, Australia by Andrew Simpson Architects (designed using AutoCAD and Rhino)

Saturday, October 8th, 2011

Article source: Andrew Simpson

“All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” – Pablo Picasso

This project for a family coastal residence is located on a stunning isolated site in eastern Victoria on former farmland. The design is an investigation of how an idealised conception of “house” is transformed by its context and use. The site has extraordinary qualities: harsh prevailing winds of the Roaring Forties; sloping site; and sublime panoramic views from Cape Liptrap to Wilson’s Promontory. The residence required maximum flexibility as a beach home that could accommodate varying sleeping needs – anything from a single guest to burgeoning family summer holidays.
