Double Roof House in Yamaguchi Prefecture, Japan by Hirokazu Suemitsu + Yoko Suemitsu / SUEP

Tuesday, August 30th, 2016

Article source: Hirokazu Suemitsu + Yoko Suemitsu / SUEP

Create a cool space controlling sunlight like in a huge “SUDARE”  (a reed screen).

A one-story house is built on a large site in the middle of the residential area, surrounded by low hills. As the neighboring buildings are mostly low-rise houses, almost none of the shadows fall on the site, and in the result the site is always exposed to the sunlight during daytime. Therefore we thought to suspend a huge “SUDARE” on the site to create cool energy in its shadow and then locate four boxes that forming house at its bottom. The upper roof is made out of 75 mm by 75 mm thinned wood arranged in a checkerboard pattern.  The span between its ends is approx. 40 m. To allow such as extension we used a PC steel rod system such as in suspended bridge construction, hanged on the steel beam located on concrete pilaster. This “SUDARE” has a role to cut off sunlight that falls on the roof surface. In the gap between the four buildings under the huge “SUDARE” was created a comfortable, half outdoor space. With overlapping of the conical landscape made out of remaining soil and the scenery of slightly elevated hills,  the huge SUDARE formed into curved by its gravity creates  a beautiful appearance.

Lightwell House in London, United Kingdom by Emergent Design Studios

Tuesday, August 30th, 2016

Article source: Emergent Design Studios

This unusually long Victorian Lion House is situated at the bend of a long terrace in Fulham. Given the limited depth of the rear garden and narrow proportion, the main body of the building and its rear wing were carefully extended towards the side and into a large basement, in accordance with the historical constraints imposed by its heritage context. Extensive light wells topping the extensions are utilised to expose newly open, contempviews. An ample basement space is connected to the upper levels both visually and physically through light wells, glass floors and cantilevered staircases, thus opening spaces across levels and creating a flexible and welcoming family home environment.

House BB in Buenos Aires, Argentina by LUCIANOKRUK

Tuesday, August 30th, 2016

Article source: LUCIANOKRUK

The place

The ground of 20m x 30m located in the forest of Mar Azul has the particularity of a very important unevenness respect of the two streets it faces. While this complicates the resolution of access to the site provides the advantage that, if the house is located high, it is very little exposed to the gaze from the street, and also from the inside you can get views of the landscape above the neighboring buildings. This difference in level is more or less smooth to the back of the lot, but it is very sharp towards the opposite front and in this area the forest is also thinned.

The Dancing Pavilion in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil by Estudio Guto Requena

Tuesday, August 30th, 2016

Article source: Estudio Guto Requena

The Dancing Pavilion is Interactive Architecture created for the Olympic Park 2016.

Scattered sensors inside of the dance floor capture the beat of the music and the movement of people dancing, which activates the motors of the mirrors on the façade of the building. The result is a kinetic architecture that hypnotizes people, and transforms the space into the most exciting dance club of the 2016 Olympics.

A Bower House in Ontario, Canada by Kariouk Associates

Tuesday, August 30th, 2016

Article source: Kariouk Associates

Bowerbirds /ˈbaʊərbɜrd/ make up the bird family Ptilonorhynchidae. They are renowned for their unique courtship behavior, where males build an elaborate structure in an attempt to attract a mate.

Design Challenge:

The challenge was to design a new home with a view of Lake Erie for a client who did not want to pay the cost of a lakeside property.  Hence, the site he acquired was a very long and narrow lot across the road from other homes and 2,000 feet away from the shore of the lake.  Despite the client’s selection of a less desirable lot, the project was required to serve as a lure for a mate (a love nest as it were, perched in the treetop) complete with two bedrooms for two yet non-existent/future hatchlings.  As such, this love nest aimed to both woo and wow a mate while also demonstrating proper family planning and money-management skills.  The remaining challenge involved the limits set by municipal zoning bylaws that restricted the home’s height to a maximum of “two storeys”.

Disco Volante in Vienna, Austria by Madame Architects

Saturday, August 27th, 2016

Article source: Madame Architects

The recently opened Pizzeria is the second of its kind hosted by Maria Fuchs, a vanguard in the recent “genuine pizza” hype in Vienna. The name “Disco Volante”  brings back memories of the James Bond villain Emilio Largo’s escape vessel. Also a famous car designed in the early 50ies carried this name (there has recently been a relaunch by Alfa Romeo). But in fact does the name of the pizzeria simply refer to its original meaning “flying disc”.
