Casa di Luce is a single-family house located in the Turtle Creek section of Dallas and comprises 3,226 air-conditioned square feet on two levels. The house is constructed on an irregularly-shaped, 8,075 square foot site with significant topography.

Ilôt Poste Weiss, ZAC Châteaucreux à ST-ETIENNE in France by ecdm Architectes

Sunday, August 13th, 2017

Article source: ecdm Architectes

Contribute to a new polarity in the landscape 

Located across from the St. Etienne station on the Esplanade de France, the influence of the intervention at the heart of the BIA Châteaucreux is a link between neighborhoods and horizon lines, a low point in the topography of St. Etienne in front of a preferred route to the city center. Combined with the scale of the project and the symbolic value of the program, This unique location gives the project a special status in the construction of the city. The project subscribes to the contemporary idea of the construction of the city that leads to the creation of rhythms, of multipurpose spaces contributing to the realization of a less linear environment, able to evolve and mutate. The goal is to embed the large commercial component of the neighbourhood in a more complex urban dynamic, made of interlocking assemblies essential to any large and vibrant city. Thus, the project offers an open floor plan, initiating continuity and affiliations, creating links between polarity and panoramas, hills and plains, lower and upper town.

The Itupeva House in Brazil, by Aresto Arquitetura

Sunday, August 13th, 2017

Article source: Aresto Arquitetura

The house is basically organized in a large block in format with two floors.

The social sector was positioned on the lower floor, which features the living room, dining room, kitchen, home theater, utility room, guest toilet, laundry room, gourmet space and pool. On the ground floor are the garage, the warehouse, the entrance hall, the office and the three dormitories.
The local conditions were decisive for the solutions adopted in the project. The lot is located in the highest part of the condominium, which allowed the creation of large openings overlooking the natural landscape.

This privileged location also allowed a better use of ventilation and natural lighting. The large openings in opposite directions allow the control of the air currents inside the house.

Liberty Lounge in Seoul, Korea by Simplex Architecture

Sunday, August 6th, 2017

Article source: Simplex Architecture

The site is located in an alley, a few blocks away from Dosandae-ro – a busy boulevard in Seoul’s Gangnam district. The area used to be a low-rise residential district in the past, but now rapidly transforming into a commercial district full of shops and restaurants. The existing building had a simple rectangular structure with a courtyard in the middle, using concrete blocks and blackened steel as a major finish material. The main interest in designing the building was to keep the existing materiality, yet to make enough alteration to accommodate the new program. The concrete block wall on the north was maintained in order to preserve the original materiality of the building, and the blackened steel was mainly used for the newly built walls.

Outpost in Idaho by Olson Kundig

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig 

Set in the remote, harsh high desert of Idaho, Outpost is an artist’s live/work studio and sculpture garden. The building’s compactness restricts site impact and reinforces the desire to be outside. This is a windy place, and the enclosed “paradise garden,” is separated from the wild landscape by thick masonry walls. The footprint of the house is the limit of intrusion into the land—a simple, clearly defined space. This structure exemplifies Kundig’s belief that the architect’s job is to create an experience of place.
