House ‘VV’ in North Holland, The Netherlands by Architectenbureau K2

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

Article source: Architectenbureau K2

House ‘VV’ provides living space for a couple who were already living in the small waterland wilderness on the fringe of Amsterdam Agglomeration. As the site is subject to occasional flooding, the house is set upon an island-like wooden deck, leaving nature almost untouched. While facing the river with an austere waterfront façade, the house has a more private, sunny side inland.

Cliff House in Kerala, India by Khosla Associates

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

Article source: Khosla Associates

The house is located in Chowara, a fishing village, 30 minutes from Thiruvananthapuram, in Kerala, South India.

Perched 200 ft. above an expansive stretch of green along the Arabian Sea coast, at the edge of a cliff, its most prominent feature is an asymmetrical sloping roof set against the fronds of a coconut plantation. Opening its embrace to the warm sea breezes, the home covers an area of 1397 sqm. A skewed 45m long sheer concrete wall supporting the single lightweight triangulated canopy roof lunges out towards the view. The external and internal finishes are polished cement, concrete and rough slate juxtaposed against warm slatted timber and naturallocal kotastone. Furniture and accessories are kept to a minimal, so that the focus doesn’t stray from the natural environment.
