House in Kitaoji, Japan by Torafu Architects

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

Article source: Torafu Architects

Located in a quiet housing estate in Kyoto, this house was designed with a hard concrete outer shell in order to protect the client need for privacy from the outside, as well as for accessibility in a wheelchair- bound lifestyle. Firstly, to protect the privacy of the family, we built walls along the site boundary to elevate the main living space, which is maximised on the 2nd floor. We designed a large central space with individual rooms, wet areas and circulation and other utility spaces surrounding it, to ensure a distance is kept well from the outside.

Casa LH in Jalisco, Mexico by Divece Arquitectos

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Article source: Divece Arquitectos 

The architectonic concept for this residential project is to propose a composition that is achieved by the proper manipulation of “contrasts in balance”; an architecture that is generated as a response to the particularities of the site, the adequate solution for the programmatic family needs, but most important, inspired by the deep motivation for the search of the supreme well being of its inhabitants.

Liaison Cubique in Aichi, Japan by Kotaro Horiuchi Architecture

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Article source: Kotaro Horiuchi Architecture

For a traditional Japanese restaurant in the underground commercial space under Nagoya Station, we started by analyzing the time transversal components of architecture, themes such as metric, gradation, rhythm and transparency, giving them a contemporary twist. We used one of the primordial volumes to spur the feeling of familiarity, the cube.

Normally, clinic is definitely not one of a destination to be thought of, except for the time of sickness or unwell. But to care more about your health and have it checked up from time to time won’t be such a bad idea. Therefore, this dental clinic, DENTAL BLISS, was meant to create the feeling of relaxation and warmth to lessen visitor’s stress from spending time in the small space with strangers and make it feel ordinary to go to clinic by routine.

Hard Werken in Kessel-lo, Belgium by i.s.m.architecten

Saturday, October 27th, 2012

Article source: i.s.m.architecten

In our opinion architecture is not neutral, it takes a clear position. She moves, surprises and is beautiful. In the creation of good architecture, the role of the client is not to be underestimated. They have to choose the right architect for the realization of their dream. A client that has utter confidence in their architect, as was the case, allows us to push the project further than the direct materialization of the design brief. A critical dialogue between client and architect is an ideal breeding ground for a beautiful project.

625 Rhode Island Avenue in Washington, DC by Suzane Reatig Architecture

Friday, October 26th, 2012

Article source: Suzane Reatig Architecture

One of the main goals for the Bailey Park Apartments was to provide much needed housing sized for families in the heart of the city. Located steps from the Shaw Metro, the site is tapered, with one short side facing the street and one long side bounded by a public alley. The architect determined that increasing the density would make the most of the downtown location and the site. Working closely with city officials, the site was rezoned to replace four dilapidated townhouses with a 16-unit apartment building.

Lounge MS in Cadreita, Spain by Vaillo+Irigaray Architects

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

Article source: Vaillo+Irigaray Architects

The organizational scheme is due to similar patterns of organic micro-structures, more in line with patterns of liquid and/or gelatinous geometry than with Cartesian structures. It sets up a framework by using a soft geometry and a unified airy treatment of space.
