G House in Reeuwijk, The Netherlands by Lab32 architecten

Friday, December 8th, 2017

Article source: Lab32 architecten

The villa is situated close to the waters of the Reeuwijkse Plassen in a dutch village consisting of not much more than a narrow through road lined predominantly by large, free-standing houses standing on ‘islands’ created by the drainage ditches of the former peatland.

The great attraction of this location lies in the vicinity of water and in the experience of this natural environment through the changing seasons. The villa’s completion represents the fulfilment of a long-held ambition of our clients, for whom a love of water has been an abiding theme of their lives.

Old Farmhouse in Munich, Germany by Peter Haimerl

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Article source: Peter Haimerl 

The oldest property in Alt-Riem. The farmhouse, consisting of a house and a stable, was built around 1750. In 2013 the Schusterbauerhaus still retained parts of the housing construction and remains of the stable. Two residential units were installed in this historic structure. The concept of the architect Peter Haimerl concept is based on two premises: retention of the historical building substance and at the same time the introduction of a spatial innovation. It connects the residential house and the stable using a spectacularly inserted concrete cube.

Narrow House in London, England by FORMstudio

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Article source: FORMstudio

The narrow deep plan of this tall terraced late 19th century building was ill-suited to its previous use as offices, with escape distances pre-determining the necessity for the centrally located lift and stair core that sub-divided the floor plate into small inflexible work spaces.

This configuration was, we recognised, ideally suited to the creation of residential space though, with naturally-lit rooms of domestic scale located to the front and rear, and support spaces located inboard around the retained central stairs and lift. A use further suggested by the domestic style of the Dutch-gabled brick front elevation.

House HC in Wondelgem, Belgium by Wim Heylen

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Article source: Wim Heylen

The terraced house is located in a housing project from ’58 in Wondelgem, Belgium. The project has the typical combination of identical row houses with alternately mirrored ground plans. All of them have a single-storey extension and a semi-private road at the back of the plot connecting the various garages and garden storages. Over the years many residents have filled up the open space between the extensions with verandas and secondary buildings, and by thus have lost relationship with the exterior space.

House in Yamanoi, Japan by WARO KISHI + K.ASSOCIATES/Architects Co., Ltd

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Article source: K.ASSOCIATES/Architects Co., Ltd.

The residence was built on a site that looks up Himeji Castle in a historical district in Himeji, Hyogo.

The client is a couple, who lives on their own. The residence was newly planned as a place to spend their life together after their children became independent. The site is an irregular shape. A small river runs on the west side, and on the other side of the river is a residential district. On the east side, Himeji Castle can be viewed beyond at the end of the front road that has a trace of historical streetscape. The design condition was very challenging, as the site was in a irregular shape, and I proposed the facade which shows the respect to townscape of the historical city. Additionally, beyond the river on the west side, it contrastingly showed a stretch of ordinary suburbanscape.
