Saint Peter House in Puebla, Mexico by Estudio Tecalli

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

Article source: Estudio Tecalli

Designed from a high tech, local handmade perspective. This residence integrates regional materiality elements like the red brick due to the closeness of the local brick producers in San Pedro Cholula. The material is arranged in an artisanal way, allowing expressive geometry due to the modular repetition. This introverted house incorporates natural lighting through the lattice and window openings defined by the interior programme and outside relevant views.

Ballantrae Court in Florida by KZ Architecture

Friday, February 2nd, 2018

Article source: KZ Architecture

This Residence was developed as a seasonal home in a golf community in South Florida.  The program specified ample guest accommodations for the clients’ extended family and friends.

The project involved a large program that would yield a massive home on a limited and restricted site.  The design strategy involved deconstructing the volume into pavilions that could generate a dialogue between built form and landscape and create intimate connections between the golf course and the living spaces.

Spacious and distinct exterior living spaces such as terraces, porches and balconies continuously connect the structure to the outside, seamlessly integrating indoor and outdoor spaces, Image Courtesy © Robin Hill

Espigas 41 in Santa Catarina, México by Dear Architects

Friday, February 2nd, 2018

Article source: Dear Architects

The house responds to a three part composition, generated according to the function of the deduced programs and as a response to their location. The crown, in yellow, enclosed and up top, is the element with the strongest presence. It embraces the bedrooms and represents the private areas, symbolizing strength and protection. In dark blue, the pavilion attends to the social activities. Its characteristic form connects to the sierra: from the inside, it frames the mountains, on the outside, it relinquishes the view. The pavilion’s live-in experience is memorable, giving each event the distinction it deserves. The base adapts the terrain to each piece, connecting areas to each other, closing off from the street and opening up to the garden and the city views. The entrance hall unites areas horizontally, while the family room connects vertically with its double-height that coincides with the center of the upper floor.

Brickwall in Brussels, Belgium by YCL studio

Friday, February 2nd, 2018

Article source: YCL studio 

In 1976 architects Jean and Veronique Boland-Springal designed and built a row house for themselves in the sleeping quarters in Brussels. Even though owners changed several times and the building went through several maintenances, main spaces and architecture stayed the same. The dwelling is organized into 6 levels, which creates compelling spaces, engaging perspectives and connects street and inner-courtyard on different levels. Building framework is from monolithic concrete columns and slabs and is compressed in a 5m gap between masonry brick walls. Bay windows with an open concrete structure framework are duplicated in the interior spaces. Meanwhile, the captured representation was oppressing – everything was painted in various colors and enclosed with diverse materials, which were physically and morally worn out.

Hope’s® Steel Windows and Doors Open Up Living Spaces of D.C. Home in Washington, D.C. by ROBERT M. GURNEY, FAIA

Wednesday, January 31st, 2018

Article source: ROBERT M. GURNEY, FAIA

Hope’s® Hopkins Series™ steel slide and fold doors along with Landmark175™ Series steel windows and doors, all featuring Thermal Evolution™ technology, lend a modern aesthetic to the traditional style of this Washington, D.C. home.

Hopkins Series slide and fold doors on the ground level help create a seamless transition from the beautiful backyard garden to the modern, art-inspired interior.

The existing D.C. residence had a traditional layout with compartmentalized spaces, heavy trim, and a dark palette of materials. The scenic garden, developed over the owners’ thirty years at the property, seemed isolated from the interior spaces.

The Place

It is a corner lot in a closed neighborhood founded in 1968, with an important afforestation, to which the years have added an incalculable value. Different species of trees and shrubs combined give landscape value to the place throughout the year.

The lot to intervene is crossed by a row of large oaks and varied species on one of their fronts and in the bordering lots.
