TWIN BLADE in Amsterdam by NIO architecten

Sunday, June 9th, 2013

Article source: NIO architecten

It’s a well-known adage that the knife cuts both ways. What this means is that each advantage has its disadvantage, that there’s a drawback to everything. This makes it an unanswerable platitude that results in a great deal of apathy. Better than a knife that cuts both ways is a knife with two blades, which share the same handle and where each blade has a single cutting edge. This is known as a twin blade. It allows you to cut two different things at a single stroke or to facilitate two dissimilar functions – or characters – at one and the same time. And that’s the idea behind the houseboat.

House of Shiroyama in kanagawa prefecture, japan by araki sasaki architects

Sunday, June 9th, 2013

Article source:  araki sasaki architects

Charred wooden planks wrap the exterior of the ‘House in Shiroyama’ by Japanese practice Araki + Sasaki architects (A+Sa), differentiating
it from its neighbors in the suburban area. The two-story wood-frame construction takes on the shape of a regular square, characterized on
the inside by the exposed natural plywood textures and surfaces and open spaces that expose the true scale of the structure from the social
areas on the ground floor.  The pitched roof gently rises on each side equally until reaching a square skylight that forms a structural ring 
allowing natural light to illuminate the entire interior.  The construction was approached from a DIY technique, using standard member sizes
and connections to allow for easy future expansion and a rational structural grid. The knots of the plywood filled and polished with epoxy resin. The ground level contains the kitchen and dining areas
on an elevated wooden platform, with a private bathroom and bedroom. The wooden beams that hold up the loft level floorboards are
left uncovered allowing a direct visual connection. A staircase at the entrance connects to the partial second story that can be used as a
living or working space.
