SFS Residence in Varna, Bulgaria by STARH Stanislavov architects

Thursday, April 23rd, 2015

Article source: STARH Stanislavov architects

Concept

SFS Residence (Sea Forest Stone) is situated in “Chaika” residential area, 50m from The Black Sea in a plot with considerable west to east downhill in virgin landscape, with valuable tree species and natural rock formations. The biggest challenge was to design contemporary, organic building which fits easily in the context of the environment. To look light, airy and unobtrusive, to work with all the elements of the landscape without dominating itself.

Primrose Avenue in Singapore by HYLA Architects

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

Article source:  HYLA Architects

This 3-storey intermediate terrace house has a unique rotating screen on its front elevation. Its cross section has an aerodynamic boomerang shape that serves to deflect wind on one side. On the other side the screen is clad with timber to give privacy. So the occupants can rotate the screen according to what they need. This also gives the facade an ever changing pattern that corresponds to the mood of its users. Inside the 1st storey has a high ceiling and good cross ventilation into a rear garden court. The staircase has a unique triangular cross section and is well lit with a skylight above.

House CS in Central Coast, Chile by Alvaro Arancibia + Sebastian Coll

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

Article source: Alvaro Arancibia + Sebastian Coll

This is a weekend house located on the central coast of Chile, 160 kilometers away from Santiago. The brief was to design a family house that could fit up to 12 people within a hilly site where the sea views are only possible in its highest point. In response to this, one of the main strategies was to rise the house above the surrounding dwellings and maximize the built area at that level, arranging the public programme on top and the private programme on the bottom. Due to the house faces south, the main floor follows a sloping roof that brings light from north and protects the public area from the sunset. Beside it, a lower height volume faces the street, concentrating the kitchen and main services, which are treated with a system of sliding shutters that control the privacy and views from the exterior. This volume does not only work as a buffer zone between exterior and interior but also as a scalar element that conceals the overall size of the house. In terms of materials, intention behind the choice of them was to use rough and cheapest construction systems such as concrete and brick for the core structure and then start dressing the house with finer elements such as glass, timber and steel that could give lightness to the house. These are used in many ways in the upper storey, becoming the flooring, ceiling, staircases, and ventilated cladding, among others.
