Article source: Berezanskyy architects

The project allows to alternately expand the functional space of the house depending on the changing needs and growth of the family. The house consists of main base unit and several additional ones. The base unit (128.5 m²) is the principal. It consists of living room, bedroom, kitchen-dining room, boiler room, bathroom, toilet facilities. It is a fully independent living unit. The additional units which are the children’s rooms, bedroom, cabinet, garage and terrace join to the base unit in the designated areas. The additional units can be added to the main unit at the same time or alternately depending on the real needs and opportunities of the residents. Thus, the house can “grow” with your family building up the necessary functional areas.

Cherry Blossom House in Black Forest, Germany by Uber Raum Architects

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

Article source: Uber Raum Architects

This award-winning family home is situated close to Strasbourg, in a village famous for its cherry trees and cherry schnapps. Presented with a naturally beautiful site, and constrained by a modest budget, we resolved to design a building that engaged with its natural environment. The house is highly methodical in its plan, and dramatically augmented by the selective framing of views.

JORDI AND ÀFRICA’S HOME in Montuïri, Spain by TEd’A arquitectes

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

Article source: TEd’A arquitectes

The house is located on a plot, not very large. This situation invites to compact the house on one side, continuing the alignment of the street façade while maximizing the patio with good solar exposure.

The house occupies a corner plot. For this reason, instead of adopting the usual uni-directional organization (street-patio), of houses between medians, the proposal is organized in two perpendicular directions. The house does not have a dominant direction. The house wants to look in all directions.

The via Domodossola 25 condominium is located on a small urban lot, between two existing buildings. The city in which is placed the project, is a semi-suburban area that was mainly developed in the period between the two world wars; the buildings that characterize most of this part of city are mostly in the “novecento” style or Art Nouveau style (the Santorre school Santarosa, the faculty of physical education, the neighborhood between Racconigi road and Peschiera road).

“Kyoku” – Bridge House in Japan by ArchiBlur Lab

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

Article source: ArchiBlur Lab

Weight can be felt, but does feeling have weight? The strength of thought in tugging out the tension at the threshold between matter and imagination, for creators, is to return to the nature of architecture and practice its uniquely creative energy.

This creator begins by developing three concepts relating to weight to describe and develop the materiality and spatial characteristics they present. These three starting points act between nature and artificiality, and provide feeling with different layers of weight sense.
