Article source: Jan Couwenberg Architecture Research, Environment, Design

On the countryside of the small village of Biezenmortel, on the edge of a national natural reserve, lies an old farm. Trough several generations the farm has slowly been transforming to a biological farm, giving place for rare cows, donkeys and shelter for the herd of sheep from the adjacent natural reserve. Beside this, the farm is host for dement elderly, who come as day guests and experiencing the wellbeing at the farm. The new building is a transition between the existing farm house, the farming and the elderly care.

Article source: BAM! arquitectura

The PYE house was built on a very narrow and deep lot in Escobar, in the northern part of the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina, which has a huge North-orientated diving wall.

The house project responds to the challenge of meeting the expectations of a young couple, taking into account not only the need of a house where they can start their own family but also the distinctive features of the lot.

Eclectic house in Ra’anana, Israel by joel jospe architects

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018

Article source: joel jospe architects

High up on a street corner stands a residential property overlooking surrounding rooftops and a captivating view.

I chose to place the main entrance to the house on the quieter street side, on the vantage point providing the view, thus also orienting most functional areas to that direction.

Article source: OLARQ OSVALDO LUPPI ARCHITECTS

In this design, the characteristics of the plot, located in a consolidated residential urban fabric have played a key role.

In a search for privacy and views to the sea, the starting compact volume is broken up to open up a courtyard.

A complex series of transparencies, reflections and long views across the patio strengthens the continuous presence of endless spaces.

Kanda Terrace in Tokyo, Japan by Key Operation Inc.

Monday, May 7th, 2018

Article source: Key Operation Inc. 

Located in a central Tokyo neighborhood with many low and mid-rise office buildings, this rental building for restaurants stands on a long, narrow lot, surrounded on three sides by streets.

Key considerations when designing a building of this type are how to create a group identity for the tenants and how to relate the units to the cityscape.

Because of its city-center location, this mid-rise building needed to be commercially efficient, occupying the entire permissible floor area ratio and filling that space with restaurant tenants on every floor.
