Main Stay House in Texas by Matt Fajkus Architecture

Saturday, June 4th, 2016

Article source: Matt Fajkus Architecture

Austin’s Bouldin Creek neighborhood provides a unique and ever-changing context to the Main Stay House. The challenges were both cultural and site-specific. The Main Stay House exists as a simple and straightforward proposal – an architectural experiment on domesticity – enabling lifestyle flexibility through clean forms, relatable materiality, and an urban infill living space that blurs the lines between inside and outside.

The 3,500 sq. ft. home is located in Redondo Beach, one block from the Pacific Ocean.

Mood Ring House in Arkansas by SILO AR+D

Thursday, June 2nd, 2016

Article source: SILO AR+D 

An architect led design-build project, MOOD RING HOUSE is a low-cost ($80/sf) single family live-work house.

Located in an eclectic neighborhood in walking distance from the city center of Fayetteville, Arkansas, the design is born out of a mix of site limitations and opportunities, economic constraints, and programmatic requirements. With a skewed alignment to the lot lines, the siting preserves two established monumental Catalpa trees, orienting the house to take advantage of north light from a clerestory, and south and west facing views of the immediate forest and the distant mountains, all while fronting the main intersection near the property. Work functions are consolidated at grade, with a majority of living spaces above. The small base minimizes the built footprint to preserve existing trees and reduce foundation costs, which are at a premium in the unstable Arkansas soil. The cantilevers, in concert with the dramatically sloping site, give unique views of the natural landscape to each living space, creating a private enclave amidst the tree canopy. Beneath overhangs are a carport on the west-facing front and an outdoor room on the east-facing rear.  The shed roof, when coupled with an inverted truss profile, floods the interior volume with natural light.

Dilido Haus in Florida by Home Vision DNA

Thursday, June 2nd, 2016

Article source: Home Vision DNA

DILIDO HAUS, the expression of a unique vision of DNA and history.

DILIDO HAUS is a single family home designed with a unique vision, the expression of both, personal story and architectural history. The intention was to achieve an architecture of dignity and honesty. The ideas built upon the strong foundations of Miami’s rich history, geography and culture, while using the latest construction technologies and high quality materials. The front façade of Dilido Haus expresses the key characteristics of MIMO, an architectural style that evolved from Art Deco and Streamline. A rectangle with horizontal proportions, flat roof broad overhanging eaves echoed by horizontal projections of balconies, creating what appear to be two thin continuous gray lines drawn across the white façade and dividing it into three elements: roof terrace, second and ground floor.

Mesa Drive Renovation in Los Angeles, California by Rios Clementi Hale Studios

Friday, May 27th, 2016

Article source: Rios Clementi Hale Studios

Built in 1992 by the husband-and-wife architecture team of Cigolle X Coleman, the house originally served as an experimental project of industrial materials consisting mostly of glass, steel, and concrete. A young family purchased the home and hired Rios Clementi Hale Studios to give their new residence a complete renovation to make the house warm and comfortable, and conducive to entertaining. Rios Clementi Hale Studios worked in the capacity of architect, interior designer, and landscape architect to extensively update the interior and exterior, and refine the home’s organization, while still respecting the “bones” of the original design
