I-House by Takuro Yamamoto Architects

Saturday, July 28th, 2012

Article source: Takuro Yamamoto Architects

White Cave House is a white massive house characterized by a series of open-air voids bending and engraving the lump of the building. The purpose of these void spaces is to introduce sunlight into the house, protecting privacy and controlling scenes not in an exclusive way. And these spaces are practically used as entrance porch, garage, courtyard and terrace, so some spaces have to be seen from inside of the house as scenes.

The intention of the design was to put more emphasis on the product rather than the booth itself yet making the booth attractive to draw more clients. Having clean straight lines while inserting a curve form made it simple yet interesting, thus achieving the design intent.

The facade is accentuated by wooden tiling. The roof above the garage is green. Architectural concrete and wood are abundantly employed in the interior.

Article source: Studio 505

“The Wintergarden Façade is a radically experiential composition, a complex and beautiful study of nature, geometry and layering that communicates the rich diversity of life”

The brief for the new facades to the three street frontages of the Wintergarden Shopping Centre in central Brisbane required the creative application of a coherent identity and architecturally holistic sensibility in order to realise a multitude of intentions – to create an entertaining and engaging retail experience, a lifestyle destination and a ‘must-go-to’ meeting place and thoroughfare – at the heart of Brisbane’s city centre.

Tongjiang Primary School is located in Jianxi Province, south-east China. The charity World Vision commissioned Joshua Bolchover and John Lin at The University of Hong Kong, Faculty of Architecture, to design a new school building at no additional cost to a typical school building found in China. These buildings are generic two story buildings with open balconies constructed from reinforced concrete and brick infill. Our aim was to work within these constraints to produce a building that responded to the site context and could create unique spatial experiences for learning and social interaction.

The BH2 programme is located at the north-east end of the ZAC mixed development zone, in the “Bois Habité” area. It is bounded by the Rue Claude Bernard to the east, and by the Boulevard de Cleunay to the north.

The immediate vicinity:

To the south of the programme there is a recent housing estate made up of small collective housing units of between R+1 and R+3. There is a difference of about one metre between the levels of the existing housing estate and the land.

To the west of the land, the existing sports ground is being kept, and included in the public parkland bordering the operation, and linked to it by footpaths.

Residence on Terrybrae Terrace in Tarzana, California by Edmund M. Einy, FAIA Architect

Saturday, July 28th, 2012

Article source: Edmund M. Einy, FAIA Architect

The spatial experience unfolds as one descends from the entry ramp down into the home, here the view of the street and its noise are diminished and the quite realm of the house pervades.

The program is organized vertically with the public living, dining, kitchen, and the main art gallery spaces on the lower level and the private children’s and parent’s rooms on the upper level. The lower level’s open plan is designed for shifting social activities. The floor is seen as a “field” in which pool, furniture, and objects sit. Large pivoting and sliding glass doors extend the habitable space through to the outside. Horizontal circulation wraps this field and serves as path for the viewing of art displayed on the walls.
