Doc – Temporary Floating House in Romania, Balkans by Lime Studio

Sunday, July 16th, 2017

Article source: Lime Studio

DOC intertwines the typology of a compact house – having a low environmental impact – with the specificity of a unique location: distributary channel Borcea . The location and the desire of a new type of dwelling – a floating, multifunctional, mobile house – imposed special and complex constructive conditions. The high water level variations of the river due to seasonal changes as well as budget conditioning have resulted in constructing a trailer like platform that can be relocated. The house is responding to site changes and changes with it. Mobility as the main feature of the construction dictated the simplicity of the designed space. Compact and with a simple, rectangular plan, the space gets a spectacular feel through the manner it integrates with the location, complimenting it. Amazing images are brought in everyday use through wide windows and patio. Although very open, the pontoon provides visual intimacy from the city through its positioning. Its multifunctionality of temporary housing and meeting point for water sports lovers opens up new perspectives and exploration angles for a forgotten and undiscovered area – the Danube river and the Calarasi area. The building process began taking into consideration the context, location and community by harnessing an existing and abandoned pontoon that has been adapted to current needs.

On Sand in Sweden by Wingardhs

Friday, July 14th, 2017

Article source: Wingardhs

An endless view is a hymn for the eye. The sound of the horizon moves your mind. A solitude site, with the sea in front and lush valleys in the back, is always the right place for a house. If the site is empty, you should build there if you can. If the site is built, you should by the house. If it does not fit your need, rebuild it.
