15° Off-White House in Holland Park, London in Paul McAneary Architects

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

Article source: Paul McAneary Architects

The clients requested a large space for their young family’s life. Paul McAneary Architects responded with an open-plan design concept, to remove all of the internal walls of the existing building without any trace of columns nor beams and to create a seamless connection from the entrance right through to the garden. A faceted ceiling-scape was designed to force light deeper into the ground floor plan.

A secular park … a mansion … majestic trees … this is the gorgeous setting the residential building l’Ermitage settles in. Overlooking the town of Neuchatel, this plot enjoys proximity to the center and an exceptional location.

Clayfield House in Brisbane, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects

In January 2010, clients commissioned SLa to do a ‘traditional’ build-in-under project to their 1890’s Queenslander that had already undergone a substantial renovation some years before. The house, while grand and in great condition, ignored the site attributes and did not adequately address the needs of contemporary living in the sub-tropics.

Southold Animal Shelter in New York by Studio a/b Architects

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

Article source: Studio a/b Architects

AIA Peconic Chapter, Merit Award, 2010

An animal shelter is complex, being hospital, refuge, prison, school, community center, and shop. The program required multiple small rooms configured for both interconnections and separations, which careful zoning reinforces. The main entrance divides healthy visits from drop-offs. There are separate entrances for night deliveries of animals, public access to the community room, goods delivery and access to exterior dog runs. Most rooms require exterior exposures for fresh air, sunlight and access.  Sound, safety, air quality and sanitary controls have stringent requirements. A dense, circulation mesh results. To provide expansive places in a compact plan, day-lighting and visual connections between and through spaces are provided.

Villa A in Kostoľany nad Hornádom, Slovakia by Architektonické štúdio Atrium, s.r.o.

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

Article source: Architektonické štúdio Atrium, s.r.o.

Vila A is built near the forest above village Kostoľany. At the beginning it seemed as if such land can never inhabited – the hill oriented to the north with 5 meter elevation from the road, the south shadowed by neighboring house…

The concept is based on some kind of a shell protecting the body from the outside. It is oriented to the east with a view on the village and the church. The surface is made of tin while the interior is wooden.

Hewitt Ave House in Toronto, Canada by Altius Architecture (designed using ArchiCAD)

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

Article source: Altius Architecture

Located in Torontoʼs Bloor West Village neighbourhood the Hewitt Avenue House was conceived as an urban home that places a bold emphasis on natural materials, sustainable design and contemporary living. The home was constructed on the site of an existing home typical of Torontoʼs older neighborhoods and just steps from Bloor Street. While renovation was considered, rebuilding was the most cost effective way to achieve the project goals to create free flowing open plan spaces with natural day lighting, ventilation and a high performance envelope.

The Dike House in Wierumerschouw, The Netherlands by Onix

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

Article source: Onix

The Dike House lies on a beautiful rural parcel by the Reitdiep water. It is a country house that harmonizes with its surroundings in several ways, and is characterized by various features: it is a house on the old dike, with a barn and a modern living area.

On the public side, the parcel is screened off by a hedge, and the building appears to be no more than a barn with a jerkin head that thus fits in neatly with the agrarian buildings in the environment. This closed front protects the house, guaranteeing privacy.

Mill City Museum in Minneapolis, MN by MS&R Architecture

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

Article source: MS&R Architecture

The Mississippi River is an unbroken thread running through the history of the City of Minneapolisand the Northern Plains region. Saint Anthony Falls—the only waterfall on the Mississippi—has attracted people to the region for thousands of years. By 1880, the falls’ massive power was harnessed to drive the turbines in Minneapolis’ monster flour mills, grinding wheat from the vast western plains into flour.
