House Over The Olive Trees in Valencia, Spain by Gallardo Llopis Arquitectos

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

Article source: Gallardo Llopis Arquitectos 

A parcel with irregular edges and a steep slope, enthroned upon a broad range of terraces sustaining a large amount of middle-aged olive trees. Over the horizon, the unspoiled views of a valley… the house as a place to relax and unwind, maybe even isolate yourself from the world… an oasis.

This project respects the modulation of the existing terraces and olive trees, standing as a lookout over the tops of these. The landscape scenery is to be perceived as the ideal place, almost in a romantic way. Therefore, the proposal is born from the pursuit of a place from which to admire the vast valley and distant mountains, taking advantage of the natural inclination of the land.

Casa Siena in Sitges, Spain by Guillem Carrera

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

Article source: Guillem Carrera

The site is located in an urban residential low density area surrounded by natural green areas near the sea. A large part of this sector is composed of plots with significant slopes.

The observation of the site and immediate surroundings and distant highlighted that most of the houses that were built or being built in the area followed the same premise: place it in the top of plot – filling the land where the buildings are located, through the widest possible cross-volume, leaving the rest of the site as a garden with difficult use and difficult relationship with the living spaces. Resulting in a disproportionately large number of houses, that are not integrated with the environment.

Stratum House in Kyunggi, Korea by stpmj

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

Article source: stpmj

Stratum House seeks a new way of concrete casting method simulating a geologic formation. Concrete works in a combination of cement, water and aggregate. Cement is mixed with water to form a paste, and its properties are strengthened together with aggregates. These pastes wrap and fill aggregates of various sizes and become hardened. The project started with a curiosity of concrete composition, its casting process, and reaction on the results from testing the changes of its constituents.

Kyomachi House in Shiga, Japan by HEARTH ARCHITECTS

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

Article source: HEARTH ARCHITECTS

This house is located along old streetscape in “Minakuchi-juku”, which is one of Fifty-three stages of the Tokaido.  Although, it was consolidated during the Edo Period. The community road and the space are narrow, so it’s impossible to make large space between the road and the house, and it’s difficult to build a house in the southeast in spite of the corner location in the northeast, which is good site location. So, I arranged inner garden in southeast. In doing so, I not only solved the problem point concerning the ground, but also made rich living climate.

Rio das Contas House in Xangri-lá, Brazil by 151 OFFICE ARQUITETURA

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

Article source: 151 OFFICE ARQUITETURA

The initial idea for this project, on the Xangri-lá beach, was to give the air of a rural house located on the beach, using a considerable area of the land. In order to meet the owner’s expectations, who like an open house without losing privacy, all of the faces of the social area were designed as a part of the ex-ternal area. In addition, natural light and cross ventilation were used with the aim of avoiding the use of air conditioning. Energy saving was also optimized with the use of LED technology in all ambients. The concrete walls, beyond creating an inequivalent brute and rustic appearance, offer advantages regarding the temperature and low maintenance.

Own House in Poland by Grupa Metaforma

Monday, October 9th, 2017

Article source: Grupa Metaforma

The project of the house is a very specific and at the same time unique challenge for an architect. Each line sketched by the designer is a reflection of the Investors dreams. In the case of this house project, the Metaforma Group was able to cooperate with clients from a very beginning of the investment process to the finishing point that was the interior design. The comprehensive approach to the topic has created a consistent whole. The residents did not have a full vision of how the building should look like. They were relying mostly on the sensations they wanted to feel inside the house.

Remodeling A Family Home in Lucerne, Switzerland by STEREO ARCHITEKTUR

Monday, October 9th, 2017

Article source:  STEREO ARCHITEKTUR

On the ground floor the main operation consists in adding the volume of the f ormer garage to the living room area and therein placing the new kitchen. Not only provides this transformation the required additional living space, but also the whole spatial organisation and the visual relations are completely redefined. Previously, the entrance, the kitchen and the living romm were rather disjoined from each other. Now they come together in a generous spatial entity which is articulated by the new kitchen. The floor of the former garage is a worktop-hight below the living room. This difference is preserved, which results in the worktop being on the same level as the ground floor. The sunken position of the kitchen generates interesting and surprising visual relations. Materialized in concrete and massive oak, the kitchen is both a structural element and a spatial piece of furniture. The entrance receives a sober overhaul and a modest wardrobe in order to clean up the previous spatial Situation.
