House of Rolf in Utrecht, The Netherlands by Studio Rolf.fr and Niek Wagemans

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Article source: Studio Rolf.fr

Introduction 

‘House of Rolf’ is an ambitious transformation of a late nineteenth century coach house into a spectacular home and workspace. What is truly unique about this project is that all the materials used to carry out this transformation originated from a demolished office building that was located next to the coach house. The care and meticulous way in which these materials were reapplied can be witnessed in the end result. ‘House of Rolf’ is proof that waste can be turned into something beautiful.

The Malleable Autonomous Retreat House by Jantzen Studio

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

Article source: Jantzen Studio

The Malleable Autonomous Retreat House was designed as a special interactive, prefabricated, painted wood retreat place for two people, in a remote location. It basically consists of a large exterior canopy, which is fitted with 32 slotted panels that are hinged in the middle, and at one end. All of these panels can be automatically moved up or down with small electric gear motors and/or manually folded up or down with hand operated geared cranks, in order to manipulate the quality of the space below, and at the same time change the shape of the entire structure. Whenever all of the panels are closed (or in the flat position) the house retains a simple rectangular form. In this position, the space under the canopy is entirely shaded, and blocks most of the wind. As the hinged panels are opened to any degree, the shape of the house begins to change into a totally unpredictable form, which can be based on the desired climatic conditions under the canopy, and/or just aesthetic preferences. Two of the largest panels are clad with solar panels, which supply all of the electricity for the house. These panels can also be folded up or down to adjust to ideal angles for capturing the most energy from the sun.

THE KITE in Australia by Architecture Architecture

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

Article source: Architecture Architecture

A stand of silver birches marks the place. Their trunks are white heat, tempered by pools of black. Everything here is light and shade. Taking cue from their slender friends, black downpipes score the white walls of the house, disappearing into the canopy above.

Approaching the threshold, the visitor is welcomed by pockets of shade nestled among protective brick walls. A large pivot window and a large pivot door throw themselves wide open, exposing the full throat of the house to the garden.

Milner Modern Residence in Vancouver, Canada by Comelite Architecture & Structure

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

Article source: Comelite Architecture & Structure

In Canada, by grasping a modern home renovation, this is the new outcome of a usual quiet family house. With a garage ducked into the lowest ground; what stood before on its topper level, being seen at front sight was a one-floor building.

Now though after removing meters of soil that blocked our entrance design, the residence can make full use of their fresh inserted third floor by taking its new implemented stairs. There is a whole pitch wide enough to fit an open kitchen leading into the dining area as well as a living room next door. Just how the client has asked for and couldn’t believe how we managed it.
