Penthouse Ecopark in Hung Yen, Vietnam by i.house Architecture & Construction

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

Article source: i.house Architecture & Construction

Optimizing the home owner’s aesthetic personality and bringing more green and most relaxing space are the criteria set out for the architects. Based on a current land-site that is cramped and limited in size (90sqm/floor), the architects have used a variety of solutions from creating floor-through space, omitting unnecessary rooms/space, fully maximizing the beautiful views of the urban township and laying unique green parts (garden stands).

For the Penthouse apartment, a contemporary design style was applied in combination with the use of several selected, classic industrial-style furnitures.

Grant Place in Queensland, Australia by Absolut Custom Glass Systems

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

Article source: Absolut Custom Glass Systems 

The brief from the client was to create a fresh, resort style family home.

Due to the warm climate, the extraordinary amount of sunny days on the Gold Coast and the property’s location on the regions Riviera it was important to spread as much of the living area to outside as possible. At the same time, it was just as important to blend the outdoor and the internal area together with the extensive use of toughened clear glass. Glass pool fencing helps to create a true resort style residence whilst not compromising on the intimacy that the owner should feel with their home. The house looks out over the waterway system that attracts so many people to the area, making it possible to park your car out the front of the house and have your boat docked in the backyard. The river system is a network of waterways that link the entire region together and, for most small boats, allows access to the ocean.

RØLDAL CABIN in Norway by REIULF RAMSTAD ARKITEKTER

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

Article source: REIULF RAMSTAD ARKITEKTER

The Røldal family vacation home is recognisable for its compact, defined and geometric shape. The objective of preserving as much of the surrounding landscape possible as a high priority resulted in the design of two volumes: a small cabin and an annex, that keep a dialogue with the encompassing nature. Dividing the structures also answers to the need of a high flexibility and to accommodate dierent family compositions in separate spaces. The articulated section is adapted to the steep terrain and is assigned to create interconnected floors and capture the views of both the forest and the hillside.

Article source: nARCHITECTS

nARCHITECTS has won the 1st prize (Concept Design) in the 2016 International Young Architects Design Competition for the 110,000m2 Shanghai Library East Hall. The competition, which generated over 200 entries, was held by Shanghai Pudong New Area People’s Government, aimed at enhancing Shanghai’s unique cultural influence and promoting qualities of public lives. The library proposal entitled “Library as Home” envisions a library that feels like a large house for all, with a rich variety of environments that Shanghai’s citizens could appropriate as their own. As such, our design is inspired by the intimate connections between people, media and nature in libraries of the ancient world.

Hip & Gable in Australia by Architecture Architecture

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

Article source: Architecture Architecture 

Once was a time when a roof was a roof. Mostly it just sat up there to keep the rain off, but more importantly, it looked like a roof. A roof would hold itself in such a way, with its jaunty gables, casual hips and firm ridges, to let the world know that this house is a house. A noble task indeed. Yet, for the most part, a roof would do precious little to enliven the warren of rooms below.

CONCORD HOUSE_I in Sydney, Australia by Studio Benicio

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

Article source: Studio Benicio

This low maintenance, contemporary four bedroom house located in Concord, Sydney, completed in May 2016, has been designed to showcase the owners’ love for concrete and to provide more space and greater amenity for their family of four.

The clients were after a new contemporary house that would make better use of their existing site than their tired, red brick cottage. The clients own and operate a formwork business, which in turn has garnered them a great love and appreciation for concrete and wanted their new house to feature this throughout.
