Prentice Women’s Hospital in Chicago by HouseHaus

Friday, December 28th, 2012

Article source: HouseHaus

The existing urban context of the Northwestern Memorial Hospital complex consists of an accumulation of single standing buildings. Bertrand Goldberg’s innovative design of the Prentice Women’s Hospital stands as the most expressive solitary object within this context.

Dihedral House in Boulder, CO by Arch11

Tuesday, December 25th, 2012

Article source: Arch11

Design strategy:

This modern house designed by Arch11 is a place where the domestic life of a young family weaves with the values of two professional athletes and the outdoors. Where this distinction may separate those roles, lines in this structure seeks to bind and integrate. Anchored on a downtown corner site, this Boulder, Colo. home has an all glass living room and Site-cast, board-formed concrete walls. The latter both moors the building to its site and provides thermal mass to control temperature swings.

The house is organized around crossing dihedral lines–one phenomenal and one tectonic—that shear the interior volumes.

Housing in Taipei, Taiwan by Chin Architects

Tuesday, December 25th, 2012

Article source: Chin Architects

At Kuo Yang Tien Mu, which is located at an important urban junction, I attempt to transform the building envelope that protects the residents’ private lives into a meaningful public city façade. The architecture is to initiate an intriguing dialogue with the disordered built environment through a unique yet contemporary gesture. The design wishes to break away from the typical mundane and repetitive urban residential housing, and express a vibrant city life specific to Taipei City instead.

Slip House in London, England by Carl Turner Architects

Saturday, December 22nd, 2012

Article source: Carl Turner Architects

Occupying one of four plots forming a gap in a typical Brixton terrace, Slip House constitutes a new prototype for adaptable terraced housing. Three simple ‘slipped’ orthogonal box forms break up the bulk of the building and give it it’s striking sculptural quality. The top floor is clad in milky, translucent glass planks, which continue past the roof deck to create a high level ‘sky garden’. Designed to Code for Sustainable Homes Level 5, it features ‘energy piles’ utilising a solar assisted ground source heat pump creating a thermal store beneath the building. PV’s, a wildflower roof, rain water harvesting, reduced water consumption, mechanical ventilation with heat recovery within an airtight envelope with massive levels of insulation make this one of the most energy efficient houses built in the UK. A prototype brownfield development offering dense, flexible, urban living – the house is a vehicle for in-house research into sustainable design, seamlessly integrating the often conflicting aesthetic requirements of architecture and alternative low energy systems. We are working to develop this model for multiple developments and as affordable housing.

Article source: ZA Architects

Commissioned by Baum construction company, the project aims to design a standard summer cottage, suitable for small-scale construction, supposedly, in Kyiv region. The design of the cottage reflects some of the most striking features of this type of houses in Ukraine, such as the necessity of home burglary protection, negligent attitude to or sheer absence of landscaping, the very fact that the house is almost never used in other seasons rather than in summer.

Based on 7 modules of identical massive volume: 2.4 x 6 x 2.4 m., each of them is shaped differently to generate a unique space, thus getting: the stage, the patio, the step, the circus, the cinema, the assembly and the scale. 7 spaces as the 7 notes that compose the musical scale, which combined together produce very different sets of sounds, multiple scenes that accommodate simultaneously reading, playing, rest or conversation activities.
