S House in Lima, Peru by domenack arquitectos

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Article source: domenack arquitectos

The house is the result of dealing with three important variables: satisfying the functional needs of the family, adapting the design to a difficult sloping topography without resorting to complicate and expensive structures, and capturing the views towards a golf course despite the fact that the plot is not adjacent to it.

Bud Clark Commons in Portland, Oregon by Holst Architecture

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Article source: Holst Architecture

Project Overview

As a centerpiece of Portland’s Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness, Bud Clark Commons (BCC) represents a new approach to providing dignified housing and comprehensive services to help those experiencing homelessness. Funded by a combination of low-income housing tax credits, urban renewal funding, and HUD stimulus dollars, the project sets a new standard by combining permanent supportive housing and temporary shelter with a community resource center.

Located at the gateway to downtown Portland near historic Union Station, BCC sits between the Pearl District, an upper-income mixed-use neighborhood, and Old Town/Chinatown, a district undergoing an unprecedented level of redevelopment. The LEED Platinum project achieves a perceivable balance between the rigorous programmatic requirements of a coalition led by the City of Portland, a progressive design approach, and sustainable building practices.

The project’s mission is to provide a continuum of services to help transition homeless individuals toward stable, permanent living arrangements. The architecture helps achieve this goal in the expression of both form and function: a walk-in day center with public courtyard and access to services; a 90-bed temporary shelter; and a separate and secure entrance to 130 efficient, furnished studio apartments for homeless men or women seeking permanent housing with support services.

Nakano fireproof wooden House in Tokyo Prefecture, Japan by Masashi Ogihara Architect & Associates

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Article source: Masashi Ogihara Architect & Associates

A site is an area where a residence crowds in Tokyo.

Since restriction of the 7-meter minimum altitude had started, many houses of 3 stories were built and had been located in a line around the site.

Therefore, except the south side which a road connects, they were the conditions which cannot expect many taking in outside environment to an inside.

57 Tivoli Road in South Yarra, Australia by b.e Architecture

Thursday, April 24th, 2014

Article source: b.e Architecture

The house, 57 Tivoli Road, is situated on a corner block in the inner city Melbourne suburb of South Yarra.

Formally one of a series of attached row houses of disparate & eclectic housing styles, the exposed corner site meant a protective building was required for both visual and acoustic privacy, and the design seeks to create an enclosed shelter for the occupants, as well as forming an architectural bookend to the procession of houses which precede it.
