Located in a suburb of ChauDoc town in AnGiang province, Southern Vietnam, this house is a sharing residence of 3 nuclear families who are kin. Although this project budget was tightened with local standards, which only allowed us to build a house with thin corrugated metal panels, we have tried to satisfy not only the regional spirits but also the rich lifestyle in which is fulfilled by sunlight, greenery and natural ventilation, as it were, living in a half-outdoor gardens.

The façade is wrapped by thin corrugated metal, which contributes not only to save the construction cost but also to blend with surrounding houses, Image Courtesy © NISHIZAWAARCHITECTS

Simple House in Jeju Province, Korea by MOONBALSSO(Moon Hoon)

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

Article source: MOONBALSSO(Moon Hoon)

The weather is strong, it dominates jeju life, it is very windy quite often, and weather changes instantaneously.  The basalt rocks are everywhere, demarcating fields, and individual houses. The orum, which is like a little hill, is everywhere, more than 350 of them in jeju island. It creates a scene. The island is sort of an exotica among Koreans, weather and vegetation reminds them of tropics. In the past, it was home for many exiles from the mainland. Time flows rather differently here. Weather is the ruler.

Parque Yucatan Housing in Puebla, Mexico by FRPO

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

Article source: FRPO

Parque Yucatán Housing is part of a wider project developed in central Mexico which deals with house industrialization processes. The implementation of a mixed construction system proposes the construction of a ground floor by traditional means –a brick and concrete wall closing a certain area- which is technified by a technical module. Over these enclosures, a series of prefabricated 2,44 x 6,10 x 3,06 m modules are lifted, built with metal frame structure and dry construction systems.

The housing complex is situated on a suburban area within the Puebla metropolitan area, and it is characterized through the configuration of certain particularities obtained from slight variations of a basic piece, a regular 12,20 x 6,10 x 3,06 m box.

Kirkwood House in London, England by Jailmake Ltd

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

Article source: Jailmake Ltd

When taking on this poorly planned out and ill functioning mid-terrace house, the solution was to turn the whole layout around.

The most dramatic change is the ground floor extension, creating a full width kitchen and dining room, with broad folding doors that lead straight out to a kitchen garden — but the impact is felt throughout the house. The flow has been redirected, drawing you straight through to the light filled living and dining space — but also allowing you to arrive, store you bike, hang your coat and put away your bag, in the ply-clad utility room. Filled floor to ceiling with rearrangeable shelving and integrated laundry rack, the room provides a dedicated space for the more day-to-day functions of a city home.

House and studio for an artist in Santiago, Chile by Planmaestro Arquitectos

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

Article source: Planmaestro Arquitectos 

The requirement was a building that would accommodate an artist’s studio and residential space for occasional use as a weekend house. The 1.500 sqm site is located in Peñalolén, a suburban district with low construction density, and neighbors some undeveloped sites. This condition leaves the building very exposed to its surroundings, so the client required that the project would limit the exposure of the interior spaces and provide privacy. The project also had to be capable of becoming an exclusively residential building at a future time, so it needed spaces to allow new uses and an extension to be planned.
