Double house in Limassol, Cyprus by Vassiliades Architects

Sunday, August 7th, 2016

Article source: Vassiliades Architects

The challenge to create two different and independent dwelling units on the same site was fulfilled successfully because they follow the same design philosophy and are consolidated visually. Morphologically the houses are characterized by orthonormal, parallelepiped volumes, lined with wood panels which stand out from the primary white volume and reflect functionally the bedrooms. The exposed concrete elements come to add strength and simplicity in whole, functioning \”compensatory \” in the warm mood that the large wood surfaces give. The design course was determined by the dedication to the functionality, when at the same time many bioclimatic elements were included in order to achieve thermal comfort for the users.

“House in Limassol V” in Cyprus by Vassiliades Architects

Friday, August 5th, 2016

Article source: Vassiliades Architects

In this bioclimatic nearly zero energy building (nZEB), we followed a minimalistic direction morphologically, in order to distinguish the actual architectural features without unnecessary decorations and exaggerations, following modernistic standards. The main idea is analyzed in the synthesis of three basic volumes, which are separated by their function and their material – white for the common spaces, wood for the private spaces and exposed concrete for the parking. The bioclimatic character of the building played equally important role, since the two main volumes are ‘open’ to the south and ‘turn their back’ to the north. In this context, the rotation of the ground floor white volume is included in order to be located exactly perpendicular to the south. Similarly, the volume of wood floor overhangs by 3 meters to the east, creating a shelter for the users, ideal for the evening hours. The environmental orientation of the house, is completed with the use of thermal insulated materials and active systems, such as a 3kW photovoltaic system.

The Three Falling Chairs Pavilion by jantzen studio

Friday, August 5th, 2016

Article source: jantzen studio

The Three Falling Chairs Pavilion is a proposal for a public art architecture/sculpture to be made of painted steel or wood. The total form is created by three large symbolic chair structures (joined together side by side) that appear to be falling backwards, and as they do this, each leaves a trail of movement through time and space that is frozen into twelve segments. Each of these twelve segments form three arches that span the space below. Eight human scaled symbolic chairs (of the same design as the large chairs) are placed under the canopy for use by the visitors to the pavilion as seating.

Studios 18 in Rajasthan, India by Sanjay Puri Architects

Friday, August 5th, 2016

Article source: v2com

Situated on an undulating site in the deserts of Ras, Rajasthan, India, Studios 18 apartments are a part of an entire layout spread over 36 acres. With no buildings or development in the vicinity, this layout is being created for the working people of a new cement manufacturing plant that has commenced production nearby. Close to the site there is no existing development and there are four villages at a distance of 1 km from the site. Taking a cue from the organic layouts of the neighbouring villages near the site, the residential units are interspersed within the existing contours along organic streets that weave through the site.

Three Trees House in New Delhi, India by DADA & Partners

Friday, August 5th, 2016

Article source: DADA & Partners 

Set on a verdant land parcel dotted with large mature trees, the Three Trees House house is nestled -much like a fork- between three large trees. The premise for choosing to situate the building amidst the trees was to preserve the existing trees while enjoying the natural setting in close proximity of the habitable areas. The house is conceived as an assembly of two fairly rectangular blocks, the east facing front block and west facing rear one. Both are connected by a narrow, transparent, staircase block. The largest tree of the three, a flowering Kachnar(bauhinia), becomes the centerpiece of the courtyard space. The shaded north facing courtyard is further animated with different rooms fronting onto it along with the large overhang canopies providing constant play of light and shade. As experienced from within the house, this space brings an enhanced sense of openness inside and also unfolds constantly changing views of the outdoors, as well as the building, as one moves around the house and vertically between different levels of the house.
