Mill Valley Guesthouse in California by Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects

Saturday, March 25th, 2017

Article source: Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects

Sited in an existing small level clearing at the top of a steeply sloping Mill Valley lot surrounded by mature cedar and redwood trees, this 640 square foot guest house is designed to serve multiple generations and functions; a guest room for visiting parents and friends, a media room, and a hangout space for teenage children. The porch and media room are situated on the more open side of the site and the guest room is tucked into the trees.

The Cement Factory in Sant Just Desvern, Spain by Ricardo Bofill Taller De Arquitectura

Friday, March 24th, 2017

Article source: Ricardo Bofill Taller De Arquitectura 

I found enormous silos, a tall smokestack, four kilometres of underground tunnels, and machine rooms in good shape. This was twenty five years ago and it was my first encounter with the Cement Factory.

I already imagined future spaces and noticed that the different aesthetic and plastic tendencies that had developed since World War 1 were present in this factory.

1.The reuse of two former artisan sheds is the opportunity to score an anonymous urban environment and degraded by the power and strength of the architecture. In this project we used crude materials to make the surfaces very expressive.

Ex of In House in Rhinebeck, New York by Steven Holl Architects

Article source: Steven Holl Architects

The Ex of In House explores a language of space, aimed at inner spatial energy strongly bound to the ecology of the place – questioning current clichés of architectural language and commercial practice. The house is a built manifestation of the research and development project Explorations of “IN” under development at Steven Holl Architects since June 2014.

Koyasan Guest House in Japan by ALPHAVILLE architects

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

Article source: ALPHAVILLE architects 

We designed a new guesthouse for young people from all over the world at Koya-san, the head temple of the Shingon sect founded 1200 years ago, the UNESCO world heritage. It is a mixture of Japanese capsule type hotel in which the privacy is well protected, and dormitory in which the communication among the guests is active. Each single room directly faces a hall so that you can chose proper distance with other guests ensuring the privacy. Selecting of thin wooden structure, resulting that the burden load per one pillar is relatively light, visibility of environmental facilities for easier maintenance and the simple composition of the space allow not only owner of this guest house but also guests to maintain, modify and keep on using this architecture for the long time.

Ithaca Guest House in New York by ikon.5 architects

Saturday, April 23rd, 2016

Article source: ikon.5 architects

Set in a bucolic residential neighborhood in Ithaca, New York, the simple zinc-metal and mahogany clad guest house rests upon an existing white-washed pool house foundation. The guest house is nestled across from an elegant whitewashed brick main house, complimented by a steel and wood pergola along its west edge, creating an intimate setting for an outdoor stone-terraced swimming pool court. The guest house cantilevers over the pool house to actively engage the main house while hovering above the existing pool.

Pensiun Laresch in Grisons, Switzerland by Architekten Gemeinschaft 4 AG

Sunday, April 3rd, 2016

Article source: Architekten Gemeinschaft 4 AG

The village of Mathon is situated in the Beverin Nature Park whith its unique, wild landscape, thus creating a special challenge for the architecture. The architects’ task was to design a very functional “guest house” with strong attention to detail, while maintaining respectful interaction with the environment. The building was set without a basement directly on the already existing foundation and aligned in such a way that every room had superb views of the Alps. To obtain maximum living space, the planning incorporated a minimal traffic area. The half a meter thick masonry did not require additional insulation and, together with the regional materials, provides for sustainable construction, while also ensuring a pleasant room climate. Thanks also to the warmth of the hosts, the house is a wonderful place to refuel and enjoy.




Island Complex in Paihia, New Zealand by Bossley Architects

Friday, October 23rd, 2015

Article source: Bossley Architects

On an island in the Bay of Islands, four separate buildings discretely occupy an east-facing bay. The houses are light pavilions which promote the concept of ‘roof’ as the predominant element of shelter. The monopitch roofs float above and beyond the spaces, supported on exo-skeletal structures beautifully detailed in wood. Exterior walls are taut joinery frames, offering minimal interruption between inside and out. The boat shed is totally underground, to reduce visual built form in the bay, with the guesthouse above.
