Amirá in Queretaro, Mexico by ARCHETONIC

Friday, December 9th, 2016

Article source: ARCHETONIC 

AMIRÁ occupies a prime location in the City of Queretaro, and overlooks it from the heights of the Diamante neighborhood. The distant surroundings are a visual complement to those nearby. The vantage point played an essential role in the design process and evokes a reciprocal relationship between the architecture and the city. The project footprint and volumetric solution encompass each residence and many amenities feature unobstructed views of the city.

The Creek House in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Friday, December 9th, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects  

The Creek House draws its inspiration from the local vernacular of brick and tin houses on a large leafy block in the Kenmore Hills. The design involved a significant re-invigoration and extension to what was a very simple but promising house. The new work opens the primary living spaces out to the north offering views and engagement with the natural creek environs which offers an enviable sanctuary from the city nearby. A rich but simple palette of stone and timber engages with the natural surroundings, whilst the sheer white walls offer a minimal and clean counterpoint to the immediate context. The outcome is a reflection of a wonderful collaboration between trusting clients that have known us for a long time, and their son who expertly executed the build.

Predicting this region to be crowded with houses in a near future, Light-House is designed to protect owner’s private life from others’ eyes. The three land sides that are touched by other residents’ are equally divided so that they can be entirely surrounded by the exterior wall of the housing.

Moreover, in accordance with owner’s lifestyle, Light-House is designed for the frequent use of outdoor space in warm seasons.

Ultramodern Casa Son Vida in Mallorca, Spain by Marcel Wanders studio

Thursday, December 8th, 2016

Article source: Marcel Wanders studio

Roots are attached to tradition but trees are directions to the future.

The first full residential project of Marcel Wanders, the 850m2 residence embodies Marcels’ vision in each of its curved corners. The conversion and extension of the Mediterranean sixties villa, gave birth to a friendly meeting between old and new. The subtle mix of classical and modern references is visible through the entire villa, from the classic profiled wall lining the curved space to the newly custom designed cupboards in straight yet classic lines. A unique atmosphere emerges as space is turning into a playground for reliefs and surfaces. House of contrasts and love between past and present, Casa Son Vida is “unavoidably exuberant and unabashedly outrageous.”

VILLA MONTFOORT in The Netherlands by Station-D Architects

Thursday, December 8th, 2016

Article source: Station-D Architects

Both man and woman for whom we designed the villa have young children from a previous relationship. Our client’s desire was to build a house that would facilitate the coming together of those two families. This resulted in a design with separate functions for each family and common meeting places for both families. Each family has its own entrance hall, living room, bathroom and toilet and bedroom area. The main hall and spacious kitchen are set up as common spaces and planned as the heart of Villa Montfoort.
