Aviator’s Villa in Duchess County, New York by Urban Office Architecture

Saturday, December 20th, 2014

Article source: Urban Office Architecture

This project explores the idea of flight as a powerful motivator for architectural darings.

The house, designed for a retired Pilot, the Aviator, is organized as an analogical continuum of dis-assembled flight components. Similarly to how the “Air Body” wraps an airplane all around, and completely, so is the House “exposed” to air on all its sides, in an orbital fashion.

Tree House in Austin, Texas by Matt Fajkus Architecture

Friday, December 12th, 2014

Article source: Matt Fajkus Architecture

Balanced shade, dappled sunlight, and tree canopy views are the basis of the 518 Sacramento Drive house design.  The entry is on center with the lot’s primary Live Oak tree, and each interior space has a unique relationship to this central element.

Composed of crisply-detailed, considered materials, surfaces and finishes, the home is a balance of sophistication and restraint. The two-story massing is designed to allow for a bold yet humble street presence, while each single-story wing extends through the site, forming intimate outdoor and indoor spaces.
