Altana R & D Center in Mumbai, India by MALIK Architecture

Sunday, September 27th, 2015

Article source: MALIK Architecture

The plot itself filled with lush large trees and its profile have dictated the evolution of the design concept. A careful study of the site, levels and the root structure of the trees leaves limited areas for development of the R&D center.  It is this study that first drove us into demolishing the existing house along with the following reasons:

  1. Aesthetically unsuitable for a modern R&D lab.
  2. Large area available without trees.
  3. Possibility of construction of a basement + upper floors to optimize built-up area.

Gearwheel factory in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by Ronald Janssen Architecten

Sunday, September 27th, 2015

Article source: Ronald Janssen Architecten

The mere fact that the gearwheel factory is still there, right in the old centre of Amsterdam, makes the building special. This warehouse from the early 20th century, with its sawtooth roof and brick walls overgrown with ivy, is like a green oasis in the city. The building has now been transformed by architect Ronald Janssen in cooperation with Donald Osborne Architect into twelve residences, in commission from real estate developer Buro Amsterdam.

Modern Atrium House in Belmont, California by Klopf Architecture

Sunday, September 27th, 2015

Article source: Klopf Architecture

The owners, inspired by mid-century modern architecture, hired Klopf Architecture to help them decide: remodel and add to a 1940s modern house or start fresh with an Eichler-inspired 21st-Century, energy efficient, all new home that would work for their family of three. With the decision made to start over, Klopf and the owners planned a home that follows the gentle slope of the hillside while the overarching post-and-beam roof above provides an unchanging datum line. Every square foot of the house remains close to the ground creating a sense of connection with nature. The resulting increase in ceiling height with each step-down helps create the hierarchy of the public spaces (living room is tallest, then dining, then kitchen, then entry). A rational layout based on four-foot-wide beam bays brings a calm composure to the space while the central stacked stone fireplace chimney shooting up through a skylight contrasts that with some fanfare.

ANTECEDENTS

This work is the result of a process that began in 2004 with the construction of a summer house in the forest of Mar Azul.It was necessary to intervene in a territory of great scenic beauty, owner of a powerful wild presence that is gradually becoming domesticated due to the proliferation of houses with a formal search from bucolic to picturesque which in nothing refers to that environment or to this present .

Broad Street House in Suffolk, UK by Nash Baker Architects

Friday, September 25th, 2015

Article source: Nash Baker Architects

Broad Street House is new build home in Suffolk by Nash Baker Architects. The house utilises a palette of natural and traditional materials to blend with the rural street scene, and the exterior uses oak cladding and handmade bricks (both locally sourced) to blend with the architectural character of the village. To create a more distinctive look, the bricks were laid in a variation of ‘Monks bond’ using white iron-free sand for the lime mortar which was sourced from the local Wivenhoe pit.
