Pool and studio SM in Balearic Islands, Spain by Joan Miquel Seguí Architecture

Thursday, September 15th, 2016

Article source: Joan Miquel Seguí Architecture

The new swimming pool and the studio are built in the back of the courtyard of an existing house. The studio is a pure volume that flies over the pool, facing the existing house. The pool is proposed as a sheet of water at the same level as the terrace.

The swimming pool is finished with the same stone as the terrace, detailing the lights and pipe-ends so that they are invisible.

Drubba Moments in Baden-Württemberg, Germany by Ippolito Fleitz Group GmbH

Thursday, September 15th, 2016

Article source: Ippolito Fleitz Group GmbH 

Titisee-Neustadt is a peaceful small town in the upper reaches of the Black Forest, which has become a favourite destination for tourists from Asia. With its idyllic lakeside position in the romantic Black Forest, many appreciate how it offers a polar opposite to their urban, industrialised lifestyle. And of course shopping is now as important a part of any German holiday as visiting Cologne Cathedral or Munich’s Hofbräuhaus beerhall.

Tree Snake Houses in Pedras Salgadas, Portugal by RA \\ Architectural & Design Studio

Thursday, September 15th, 2016

Article source: RA \\ Architectural & Design Studio

Along with the project Pedras Salgadas Park by architects Luís Rebelo de Andrade and Tiago Rebelo de Andrade, came the challenge of creating an object that could recreate the fantasy of the tree houses.

The project for these houses was developed in partnership with the Modular System Company. The idea was to get an object that would be far away from the orthogonality and from pre-established concepts associated with the modular construction.

Lyon Park House in Arlington, Virginia by Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

Thursday, September 15th, 2016

Article source: Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

Lyon Park, in Arlington, Virginia is an “urban village” near Washington, DC. Most of the houses in this established neighborhood were constructed in the 1920’s and 1930’s. The houses vary in style, ranging from small single-story bungalows to larger wood and brick colonial revivalist houses. Streets are tree lined and the topography is gently rolling. After living in their house for about seven years, a young family of four hoped to transform their colonial house to better fit their lifestyle. A series of small but cozy rooms failed to connect with each other and to the deep, sloping landscaped backyard. Excluding the basement, the existing house comprised less than fourteen hundred square feet, with two bedrooms and only one full bathroom. Ideally, the transformation would retain the “sense of home” while providing spaces open to each other, additional bedrooms and a better connection to the landscaped site. A building that avoided stylistic mimicry with modern light filled spaces was desired. Sustainable construction techniques and the use of environmentally sensitive materials were expected.
