Clovelly House in Sydney, Australia by rolf ockert design

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Article source: rolf ockert design

Having seen some of our earlier work the owners of this extraordinary oceanfront site invited us to submit ideas about what a new house there could look like. They had lived in a simple cottage on the site for several years before and therefore had an intimate familiarity with the advantages and disadvantages of living in this spectacular but exposed spot.

The design process, complex due to several defining key issues inherent to the site, ended up taking us through some radically different sketch options before settling on the one that was finally pursued.

52 COUNCIL FLATS IN NANTERRE, France by Colboc Franzen & Associés

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Article source: Colboc Franzen & Associés

The Hoche ecodistrict is rising from the ground on old industrial sites. It has to mediate between the scale of the Chemin-de-l’Ile park and the A14 motorway that cuts through it, and the far smaller scale of an area of detached houses dating back to the 1930s. The two plots selected for the development are a good illustration of the challenge. The housing is divided into housing blocks that are look onto public space and face the eight-storey towers between them and the motorway and a square, but in the centre of the block are houses of the same dimensions as the existing detached houses.

  • Size: 300 sqm
  • Budget: 30’000 €
  • Software used: 
    • Rhinoceros 3d + Grasshopper an advanced computational modeling tool. We used optimization algorithms to reduce the types of components, the software calculated the length of each flower box side reducing the number of variations. The parametric approach was crucial to find the best oriented production design.The roar was thus chosen as base module, in that it offered a good coverage of the space whilst optimizing the number of components. The base modules are six, from 0.5 sqm to 3 sqm, formed by the combination of 4 different cuts which then compose the sides of the planters, 8 different nodes with as many optimized variations for the joining of the elements. The result is a total area of 300 square meters, consisting of 50 modules and 90 nodal elements.

A Pound of flesh for 50p in south London, England by Alex Chinneck

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Article source: Alex Chinneck

‘A Pound of Flesh for 50p’, by Alex Chinneck is a life size construction of a house made entirely from wax bricks that has been gradually melting since October, as part of London Bankside’s MERGE Festival, celebrating art and science. The house is due to finish melting this week and will leave a pile of wax with just the roof on the pavement. The artwork explores the science of melting points and celebrates the history of an area that once housed the largest candle-making factory in Southwark. Architectural features such as double-glazed windows, drainpipes and a tiled roof will enhance the installation and bring it to life.

THE COCONUT LODGE in Hong Kong, China by OVA Studio Ltd

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Article source: OVA Studio Ltd

Harvested from plantations that procure income to millions of people, coconut wood is a sustainable product by excellence. The cycle of coconut production, felling/processing and re-plantation, guaranties a sound renewable supply that doesn’t impact the environment. After being used all their life coconuts, the trees become senile around 60 years old. They can then be cut and used for construction, furniture and decoration, which will constitute a windfall profit for the farmer and an excellent material for sustainable Architecture.
