Casa Moscova in Milan, Italy by Studio GUM

Sunday, October 2nd, 2016

Article source: Studio GUM 

The Moscova house is a volume with rectangular plan, placed on the fifth and top floor of a nineteenth century building, situated in a street corridor connecting the ‘garden’ of the city of Milan, the Sempione Park, to “Chinatown”, whose pronunciation perfectly alludes today to that cosmopolitan quality of big and small cities. The longitudinal development of the plan measures 5×20 m: the elongated west side adjoins to a symmetrical apartment, presenting thus no openings, while towards east wide roof openings offer a  broad view onto the skyline of Porta Garibaldi. The structure is of masonry and the thick partition walls of pressed bricks of which it consists divide the space in four communicating areas, connected towards west by a series of aligned openings that offer a full visual lengthwise from one end to the other. On top of the one sided pitched wooden roof, a row of skylights delivers a significant amount of light towards the ‘blind’ side of the house.

De Opmaat extended school in Arnhem, The Netherlands by AHH

Sunday, October 2nd, 2016

Article source: AHH 

De Opmaat, an extended school located where a meadow landscape meets the outskirts of Arnhem, houses a primary school, a nursery, a playgroup and a gym. The building has sloping roofs, staggered in relation to one another, with stairways, tribune steps, rooflights and roof vegetation. The form fits in with the surrounding area. Thanks to the green on the roofs, the view of the landscape from the houses on the other side remains intact. The glazed frontage on the north side refers to the nearby glasshouses.

Mangulica house in Yucatan, Mexico by Alberto Zavala Arquitectos

Sunday, October 2nd, 2016

Article source: Alberto Zavala Arquitectos 

This house is located on the tropical coast of Yucatan, Mexico, its keynote idea being to confuse the borders existing between the “inside” and the “outside”. This duality gives rise to surprises and a constant awareness of situations occurring outside. Movement (motion) becomes particularly important, as does the change from day to night and the changing of seasons.

Butanta House in São Paulo, Brazil by LAB Arquitetos

Sunday, October 2nd, 2016

Article source: LAB Arquitetos

In sight of a comfortable house for the whole family, the owners decided to renovate an old house from the early 50s.
The architects from Lab Arquitetos developed the project in order to integrate the outdoor area to the inside of the house, making it possible the usage of pergolas, balconies and wide windows.

Searching for an aesthetical look that refers to the northern Argentina fields and grasslands, rustic materials such as wood were used, contrasting with the contemporary furniture and integrated rooms.

Zn House in Toronto, Canada by +tongtong Inc

Sunday, October 2nd, 2016

Article source: v2com

Multidisciplinary design studio +tongtong recently completed a renovation and addition to a traditional Victorian house in Toronto. The house was transformed into an open and bright modern home through a series of strategic moves and incisions.

The specifications were to build a modern family home that expands the area of livable space while remaining true to the vernacular of the neighborhood. This challenge was met with an emphasis on natural materials and light. Inspired by rural living and the original build date of the home, industrial materials accentuate re-imagined architectural qualities in an unmistakable contemporary space.

Complex surrounding context + Mountain in the distance

The given site is located in front of the bus stop on the main street of the Mondol beach, in Geojae island. There is a stunning horizon of Mondol beach along the Geojae seashore, 100 meters ahead of the site. However, this stunning view can only be captured from the higher level above the ground, from the limited view frame created by the gaps in between the existing buildings. The site is basically surrounded by the randomly constructed accommodations. Yet, the picturesque view of Moja Mountain over those buildings is considered as our targeting landscape.
