Briardene in Hampshire, England by OB Architecture

Thursday, November 9th, 2017

Article source: OB Architecture 

Briardene is a small development of 2 detached houses on the site of a former bungalow in the village of West Wellow in Hampshire.

Our developer client wanted to maximise the potential of the site with a sensitive but contemporary scheme that would find favour with the planning officers. Our challenge was to convince the local authority and neighbours alike that a net gain of one unit was acceptable on what is quite a restricted site.

House in Hamilton, Australia by Tato Architects

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Intellect for Living in Semi-exterior Spaces that are Equivalent to interior

This residence is located in Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland, Australia. This region is home to the Queenslander — a traditional style of wooden stilted house complete with veranda. The characteristic veranda is an environmental interface for keeping sunlight off the buildings outer walls, and also serves to link residents to their city and community through acting as an entrance porch, and sometimes even a dining room or reception area for greeting guests. In Japan these roles used to be carried out by engawa loggias and earthen floors, but such spaces are now in the process of disappearing. People greatly value the type of lifestyle, which can take place in semi-outdoor spaces. I saw an example of this in a housing catalogue issued in 1939, in which indoor and semi-outdoor areas were displayed in different colors and both of their floor spaces noted down for readers.

Detached dwelling project in Valencia, Spain by Mano de santo

Article source: Mano de santo

The spirit and the personality of the owners influence in the design from the beginning til the end. A restless, rebel and non-conformist character induces that the design of the house adds experiences already lived and dreams up to live.

Headquarters Of Métropole Rouen Normandie in France by Jacques Ferrier Architecture

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Article source: Jacques Ferrier Architecture

The headquarters of Métropole Rouen Normandie is a unique, memorable and fitting image on the banks of the Seine in Rouen.

What makes it so unique is how the new building fits in with the surrounding landscape of Rouen. The building’s dynamic profile contrasts with the omnipresence of horizontal designs found along the major port, while its silhouette echoes the renovated industrial buildings on the right bank. The oblique shapes are reminiscent of the silhouettes of cranes and other objects in the port and the bows of the passing ships.

Salters Acres in Hampshire, England by OB ARCHITECTURE

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Article source: OB ARCHITECTURE

Salters Acres is a development of 3 detached houses on Stockbridge Road in Winchester.

The 3 houses were conceived in response to the suburban setting of the site on the edge of Winchester; the character of the area is quite mixed so we set out to establish a design that would feel comfortable within its setting without overtly replicating one of the various architectural styles in the vicinity.

Cross Street Bankstown in Australia by Tony Owen Partners

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Article source: Tony Owen Partners 

Bankstown Gardens is a 9 storey signature apartment development consisting of 54 units, in a landscaped garden setting.

The building is located on a prominent corner in Sydney’s Bankstown. The building is curved at the corner to reinforce the corner and present as a gateway in the streetscape. The dynamic design utilises a framework of sun control fins to create an exciting frieze on the façade. The diagonal geometry articulates the façade whilst allowing for large expanses of glazing and external planter devices. The transparency of this material is juxtaposed with the lightness of the white screens to create a vibrant and light façade.

Atelier House in Lisbon, Portugal by INÊS BRANDÃO – ARQUITECTURA

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Article source: INÊS BRANDÃO – ARQUITECTURA 

The goal is to rehabilitate an apartment, with 70m2, inserted in a building that goes back to early 40’s, inserted in an industrial neighbourhood with a characteristic architecture, it served as a social housing for the workers of “Ar Liquido” factory. These apartments were characterized by having small rooms, individually linked by a long corridor, making them spaces with a high lack of natural light. The lack of storage space, especially in the kitchen, was another major problem, which had to be solved.
