A House Awaiting Death in Ise, Japan by Eastern Design Office

Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

Article source: Eastern Design Office

“A house awaiting death,” the client said to us. “I will die in 15 years.  It will be a house awaiting that death.  The building is fine as long as it lasts 15 years.  Something small would be good.”  “I have found the place.” A patch of land on a peninsula facing East.  “I’m glad the land faces East.  I hate the sunset.”

“When I die it won’t be sunset, it will be sunrise.  When the final moment comes, I will face the sea and depart on a ship flashing towards death.  It’ll be a time revealed after death.”

Europan 11 (winning team – CLIC architecture)
One cannot consider sustainability without mentioning energy issues. The changes ahead have a major effect on the world economy, the environment, and society at large ; They beg for creative new ways of life. Although our proposal first uses the concept of greenhouses as an energetic solution, it then leans on its high flexibility and economic capacities to create an evolutive design. Our proposal aims to connect, under an always changing seasonal landscape, all metropolitan scales from public space to housing issues, from global to local scales.

Cliff House in Ontario, Canada by Altius Architecture (designed using ArchiCAD)

Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

Article source: Altius Architecture Inc.

Set on the Cliff-side of a much-cherished lake, this cottage seeks to enhance the extraordinary surrounding scenery through the thoughtful integration of building elements with the natural assets of the site and terrain. This dwelling emerges form the rock formation of the cliff using the same local granite to form its base. A central core acts as an anchor that circulates movement, light and air into the living spaces that pinwheel and cantilever off into the landscape. In spite of its modest scale, the residence easily accommodates the family of four by providing amenity for dinning, cooking, living, reading and sleeping which are each carefully tuned to the unique view, light and breezes of the cliff. To balance the heavy mass derived from the fireplaces; cantilevered volumes, flying roofs and floor to ceiling glass are used to achieve a lightness of form as it works to bring the lake into the living spaces.

Gheri House in Prato, Italy by Fabio Capanni Workshop

Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

Article source: Fabio Capanni

The extraordinary industrial growth that the city of Prato had in the late post-war period, mainly due to the textile sector, prompted a deep transformation in the urban settlement of the city and of the small neighbouring villages.

The sites belonging to houses, used so far as orchards and gardens, have been progressively saturated in order to obtain laboratories and warehouses for textile factories, according to a logic of occupation of space that proceeded from outside to inside.
