Campanules House in City of Brussels, Belgium by EXAR Architecture

Sunday, February 24th, 2013

Article source: EXAR Architecture

The previous house offered tiny opening to the garden. The “back” rooms, kitchen, bathroom, previously considered as services, blocked the views from the house to the nice garden. We decided to keep these functions but to open them widely, by creating large windows. The kitchen – dining room offers an large open view to the vegetation. The bathroom has focused view to the trees.

Offset House in Sao Paulo, Brazil by Shieh Arquitetos Associados

Saturday, February 23rd, 2013

Article source: Shieh Arquitetos Associados

The house is a direct result of the site’s complicated geometry. In plan, perimetral lines are given by the highest possible occupation of the property, discounting setbacks (restrained either by municipal legislation, or by the neighborhood regulation). Thus the nickname Offset House: a house that is the reflection of the sides of the lot.

Saturday, February 23rd, 2013

Article source: Alejandro Sanchez Garcia Arquitectos

The Chipicas Town Houses are four independent single buildings, which were built inside a private garden in downtown Valle de Bravo, Mexico. The vertical design was used to salvage most of the vegetation, as well as, a solution to the small footprint. The Chipicas Houses were designed with two sides of the façade made of floor to ceiling windows and two sides with a skin made of wooden lattice to gain a sense of privacy.

Article source: Nomade Architects

This 130 m² house is constructed in “Los Huemules” Ecological Reserve, 10 km from El Chalten town in the southern part of Santa Cruz province, Argentina.
