Eyrie vacation homes in Kaiwaka, New Zealand by Cheshire Architects

Friday, September 25th, 2015

Article source: Cheshire Architects 

Eyrie comprises two houses near Kaiwaka. Each is barely larger than four sheets of plywood. They are made from wood, are off-grid and autonomous, their outsides burnt black. This project is part polemic, part escape. Holiday homes have become this country’s decadence. Our sub-prime estuarine site permitted a 1500m² palace. It forbade two 29m² cabins. At night we talked excitedly about Malevich’s Suprematism; in the morning we got up and wrote legal submissions on visual density and the attrition of driveways. We wanted a different vision for New Zealand’s coastal future. In these houses a history of prismatic abstraction is conflated with a poetic of small boats bobbing in a sea of grass. There are no doors. One climbs up boulders and in through a window instead. We hoped that in subverting the shorthand language of building these little constructions might feel like something other than – and more than – houses.

Renovation & extension of a holiday house in Villers-en- Fagne, Belgium by Dehullu Architecten

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

Article source: Dehullu Architecten

The quality of the existing dwelling consists not only of the building itself, but also of the surroundings and orientation.  On renovating the existing building the architects worked with local materials to stay as close as possible to the original design.  Logically the main living room was relocated in an extension oriented on the beautiful surroundings of the small and rural town of Villers-en-Fagne.  This extension was conceived  in a delicate and quite sober structure.  The living area is suspended between the two slabs of roof and floor.  The connection with the terrace and the green and hilly  surroundings is optimized for a relaxing and enjoyable stay.

House CS in Central Coast, Chile by Alvaro Arancibia + Sebastian Coll

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

Article source: Alvaro Arancibia + Sebastian Coll

This is a weekend house located on the central coast of Chile, 160 kilometers away from Santiago. The brief was to design a family house that could fit up to 12 people within a hilly site where the sea views are only possible in its highest point. In response to this, one of the main strategies was to rise the house above the surrounding dwellings and maximize the built area at that level, arranging the public programme on top and the private programme on the bottom. Due to the house faces south, the main floor follows a sloping roof that brings light from north and protects the public area from the sunset. Beside it, a lower height volume faces the street, concentrating the kitchen and main services, which are treated with a system of sliding shutters that control the privacy and views from the exterior. This volume does not only work as a buffer zone between exterior and interior but also as a scalar element that conceals the overall size of the house. In terms of materials, intention behind the choice of them was to use rough and cheapest construction systems such as concrete and brick for the core structure and then start dressing the house with finer elements such as glass, timber and steel that could give lightness to the house. These are used in many ways in the upper storey, becoming the flooring, ceiling, staircases, and ventilated cladding, among others.

Station Rancour: holiday homes in renovated former carriages in Belgium by sabine schweigert

Friday, February 28th, 2014

Article source: sabine schweigert

Two carriages of the M2 train, which until 1990 regularly hauled passengers along the Belgian railway network, can now be found inside “Station Racour” (Belgium). Skilfully renovated and refurbished, while at the same time adhering to the styles, colours and finishes of the original structure, today the carriages take on a new role as two four-star holiday homes, each of approximately 60 square metres and accommodating a maximum of six people.
