Residence Addition in Provincetown, MA by Hammer Architects

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

Article source: Hammer Architects

Located at the end of a shell-paved lane near Provincetown’s center, this comprehensive reconstruction of an 1820’s Colonial house with later additions, created a three-bedroom residence with a landscaped courtyard in a previously unused back yard. Great care was taken to blend the new construction with the scale and historic character of the surrounding homes.

Article source: SoNo Arhitekti 

House RE was very much affected by the demanding local conditions that represented a major challenge for the designing team. Main concept is the ever-changing volume of inner space that is strongly influenced by the surrounding area’s diversity. The boldly designed facade is a combination of dark color shades and natural larch wood’s textures.

MCDhouse in Texas by Adia

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

Article source: Adia

Story: How a 22-year-old architecture student turned scraps into a sustainable paradise for a family in need.

The MCDhouse was built in cooperation with the Sustainable Builders’ Guild of Huntsville (Texas) as part of a local initiative to increase earth consciousness while providing homes for low-income families. Built to the minimum square footage allowed by law (for three residents), the house challenges the “hermetically-sealed box” mentality and sets out to prove that large enclosed homes are not necessary for comfort, functionality, and dignity.

CASA LA CAÑADA in Santiago, Chile by Ricardo Torrejón Schellhorn

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

Article source: Ricardo Torrejón Schellhorn

This house is set on a 1,060 sqm site in the last flat urban area of eastern Santiago before the Andes begin.

The plot is 15m wide by 67m length with an existing garden with mature 40 year old trees.

The original house, built back in the 70’s, took no particular advantage of the garden. Despite being uninhabited for almost 20 years the backyard was luckily well preserved and felt like a forgotten park.
