A secular park … a mansion … majestic trees … this is the gorgeous setting the residential building l’Ermitage settles in. Overlooking the town of Neuchatel, this plot enjoys proximity to the center and an exceptional location.

Clayfield House in Brisbane, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects

In January 2010, clients commissioned SLa to do a ‘traditional’ build-in-under project to their 1890’s Queenslander that had already undergone a substantial renovation some years before. The house, while grand and in great condition, ignored the site attributes and did not adequately address the needs of contemporary living in the sub-tropics.

Villa A in Kostoľany nad Hornádom, Slovakia by Architektonické štúdio Atrium, s.r.o.

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

Article source: Architektonické štúdio Atrium, s.r.o.

Vila A is built near the forest above village Kostoľany. At the beginning it seemed as if such land can never inhabited – the hill oriented to the north with 5 meter elevation from the road, the south shadowed by neighboring house…

The concept is based on some kind of a shell protecting the body from the outside. It is oriented to the east with a view on the village and the church. The surface is made of tin while the interior is wooden.

Hewitt Ave House in Toronto, Canada by Altius Architecture (designed using ArchiCAD)

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

Article source: Altius Architecture

Located in Torontoʼs Bloor West Village neighbourhood the Hewitt Avenue House was conceived as an urban home that places a bold emphasis on natural materials, sustainable design and contemporary living. The home was constructed on the site of an existing home typical of Torontoʼs older neighborhoods and just steps from Bloor Street. While renovation was considered, rebuilding was the most cost effective way to achieve the project goals to create free flowing open plan spaces with natural day lighting, ventilation and a high performance envelope.

The Dike House in Wierumerschouw, The Netherlands by Onix

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

Article source: Onix

The Dike House lies on a beautiful rural parcel by the Reitdiep water. It is a country house that harmonizes with its surroundings in several ways, and is characterized by various features: it is a house on the old dike, with a barn and a modern living area.

On the public side, the parcel is screened off by a hedge, and the building appears to be no more than a barn with a jerkin head that thus fits in neatly with the agrarian buildings in the environment. This closed front protects the house, guaranteeing privacy.

Quinta Do Vallado Winery in Peso da Régua, Portugal by Francisco Vieira de Campos

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Article source: Francisco Vieira de Campos

In a landscape as unique and astonishing as Douro, any intervention must be very precise. That’s why the first challenge was to underline the distinctive identity of the project while carefully respecting the landscape. Each gesture had to be incisive, adapting itself to the given programme while conquering an expressiveness that could value both the built complex and the surrounding landscape. The expansion project for Quinta do Vallado included two areas of intervention – production and leisure – and a supplemental challenge: to maintain and to integrate the per-existing buildings in a new complex with a clearly contemporary vocabulary. The unification of all these purposes needed great technical precision and resulted in great simplicity, both in the use of material and in the creation of forms. This assured minimal impact to the landscape but the same economy of means was used to create very seductive spaces. Seduction of the visitor was always part of the game.
