House Mosi was commissioned to Nico van der Meulen Architects with an explicit plan: the final product had to match the owner specifications. All in all, the architects had to create a single-storey home with an urban feel to substitute the 1950’s feel of the old house and convert it into a timeless modern space with a unique flow.

Palazzo Orlandi in Tuscany, Italy by b-arch architecture

When we think of Italy many images are called back to our minds; generally speaking it’s about idyllic places, deeply viewed in a historical perspective, city palaces or country farmsteads that are vanishing under the spreading standardization of the “pre-packaged” house imposed by the building market.

Tamaranzaka House in Kokubunji, Tokyo by Kiyotoshi Mori & Natsuko Kawamura / MDS

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

Article source: Kiyotoshi Mori & Natsuko Kawamura / MDS

Due to Tokyo’s high land prices, plot sizes become reduced as a matter of necessity. What’s more, buildings often become even smaller in order to satisfy strict building regulations. As a result, architects working on residential projects in the Japanese capital are universally concerned with how to maximize the physical area of these buildings within a limited space, as well as how to produce a feeling of openness and breadth. Many clients are also concerned with how to provide adequate storage within a small space, and how to create a comfortable environment.

JPGN House in Brasília, Brazil by MGS – Macedo, Gomes & Sobreira

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

Article source: MGS – Macedo, Gomes & Sobreira

The owner of this house, at the South Lake residential district in Brasilia, had grown up on that same street. The window of his bedroom was opened to the view of the Paranoá Lake towards northwest, with the monumental zone of Brasília right at the opposite bank.  He had witnessed the evolution of that landscape, and intended to keep living together with it. The house was almost fully elevated on piloti, on the edge of the height allowed by urban regulations, opening the view above the neighbors’ roofs.
