Sliding Door House in Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan by Naoi Architecture & Design Office

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

Article source: Naoi Architecture & Design Office

This house was built for a husband-and-wife couple and their two children. Overlooking a field of sweet potatoes, the quiet and tranquil site lies adjacent to a house occupied by the client’s parents. The space that lies between these two houses is used by local residents as a path, and retains a sense of easygoing, neighborly charm. In order to preserve a rich sense of these connections between nature and people, we decided to install a large sliding door in the front of the house.

St. Horto in Rome, Italy by OFL Architecture

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

Article source: OFL Architecture

The project stems from the idea of creating a perfect synergy between architecture, nature and social technologies Jardimpu (Arduino and Paraimpu).

The name “St. Horto” is a pun, between Italian and English language. The two words “Horto” and “St” give at the same time the idea of a sacred, intimate garden and of something crooked, apparently disordered but full of life, just like a plant. Together they represent the irregular geometry (crooked or oblique) but highly controlled architectural design of the garden.

Rail House in Santpoort-Noord, The Netherlands by Zecc Architecten BV

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

Article source: Zecc Architecten BV 

The project involves the transformation and expansion of a railway cottage next to station Santpoort-Noord. The railway house is on one side bordered by the railway line between Amsterdam and IJmuiden and on the other side by the National Park South Kennemerland. The contrast between the straight metal rails and the softness of the dunes is the basic idea for the metamorphosis of this railway house. The hardness of steel, concrete and glass across waving grass, shells and wood.
