Moor Street Residence in Fitzroy, Australia by Andrew Maynard Architects

Friday, October 30th, 2015

Article source: Andrew Maynard Architects

How do you create a home in 4.5m? It’s tricky, but a lot of fun.

A family of four had lived in this modest, ageing house for almost eight years. As the children neared their teenage years something had to be done. Abandoning their home and moving elsewhere was not an option as the family was an important part of a thriving community.

“House in hieidaira” in Shiga, Japan by Tato architects

Friday, October 30th, 2015

Article source: Tato architects

Located in a rural part of Japan on the flank of Mount Hiei north of Kyoto, this house was designed for an artist who required a studio, living space as well as to accommodate his parents. The house has been designed as a collection of three independent but related structures that reference the local vernacular of predominantly small pitched roof cottages. It was thought that to try to accommodate all of the required programmatical functions in one structure would result in a too large building. Also there were concerns from the planning authority that activities in the studio may result in disturbance to neighbouring residents.

LIVING STONES in Cinisi PA, Italy by Tomas Ghisellini Architects

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

Article source: Tomas Ghisellini Architects 

The new church of Cinisi will be an unforgettable and extraordinary physical icon, a translation of the feeling of its origins: a large family of wiry stems, like a cloud of souls, a crowd of people huddled together, lives on site thickening around an ideally aggregating center. The progressive thickening of the elements culminates into a dense and compact architectural core, the proper body of the church, in which the stems seem about to dive or from which, depending on interpretation, seem to have been carved out.
