1.8M Width House in Tokyo, Japan by YUUA Architects and Associates

Thursday, July 23rd, 2015

Article source: YUUA Architects and Associates

A house where light shines in and fresh air flows between the floating floors.

The size of the property is approximately width 2.5m and depth 11m.  This small and narrow piece of land is a typical “eels’ bed” site, where one can reach his/her arm from left wall to right wall even though buildings stand very tight and compact next to one another.  We have tried to reserve as much space as possible as well as to provide psychological openness for the resident.  The house has been designed to follow the concept “A house with playfulness where people and cats live happily”.

Molewa-Mount Lu World Architecture International design competition in Ruichang, China by AtelierBlur/Georges Hung Architecte D.P.L.G. & Partners

Thursday, July 23rd, 2015

Article source: AtelierBlur/Georges Hung Architecte D.P.L.G. & Partners

Competition winning scheme for Plot 15 of the MOLEWA residential design competition in Ruichang, Jianxi Provence of China.

Residential design in China faces multitudes of restrictive design issues: One, facing heavy regulations imposed by local planning bureaus residential design often results in very strict interpretations of massing and building separations. Second, a developer-led and market driven standard of apartment layout creates a homogeneous and monotonous building typology that litters the urban landscape offering very little choice to potential buyer / inhabitants. Thirdly, out-of-date local customs remains a design barrier that is difficult to overcome by users accustomed to certain arrangements of functional layout that is a reflection of the developer-led model, fueling the perpetual circle of the same type of residential layouts.

Article source: Kim Dong-jin / L’EAU design Co., Ltd. 

Expansion of Commercial District and Destiny of Residential Area
In between Apgujeong-dong where the middle class gathered and high tech business town Samsung-dong with Teheran-ro as a center, Cheongdam-dong remained in relatively quiet residential area but alleys are gradually changing in the aftermath of surrounding commercial district. Other than having great market value of apartment and land and advantage of school district in this town, it still has good residential environment, but despite of thorough city planning like district units plan, it has possibility of threatening the residents as target of unwanted commercial district.

These Vilanova dwellings with load-bearing walls structure were initially defined  as a  disorganized house without hierarchies of spaces, where the stays on the center of the house were “punished”  for its corridor, causing that the rooms were just open to the communal staircase and to a small inner courtyard.

Executive offices Ravenna – SIRIO Ltd. in Italy by Bartoletti Cicognani architettura e design

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

Article source: Bartoletti Cicognani architettura e design

Our goal was to turn a simple industrial unit into an executive and management center for Sirio’s offices.

The main alteration we made on the building was the addition of an inner court. We removed part of the existing roof and created a little garden with wide, tall windows that could bring plenty of natural light in every room. Around this central patio, the rest of the building develops. On the ground floor are the operational offices: a wide, double-height open space on which the spacious, quite and bright executive offices – on the first floor – look out. The mezzanine floor houses a wide relax area. The entrance hall, the reception and the waiting area has been designed to display the professionalism and competence of our client’s company, and the vertical path that connect it to the executive offices passes through the large, sunny terrace.

Casa Sur Ual in Vella, Switzerland by Christian Müller Architects

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

Article source: Christian Müller Architects

Villages in the Alpine Region are threatened with being turned into ghost towns. This is being caused by a number of factors. The present building stock has a large portion of second homes which is hardly being used. The amenities offered do not live up to modern standards and there is preciously little room to build new houses. A project by Christian Müller in the Swiss village of Vella is a showcase of how this development can be countered with innovative concepts.

Hidalga House in Mexico by Grupoarquitectura

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

Article source:  Grupoarquitectura

This residence is located in a mountain slope surrounded by trees in a forest near Mexico City. It was of utmost importance not to tear down any trees in such a privileged site. This translated in a forced floor plan design, always attempting to avoid disturbing the trees. Because of site’s sloping terrain, access is through the top level through a welcoming foyer. This foyer is located within a connecting structure that unites the two main buildings, the first one being the main building that houses all public rooms such as dining room living room, library room and bedrooms, all enjoying views of the garden; and a second supporting structure aligned with the street that houses service areas such as laundry room, storage and service areas.
