Monday, November 20th, 2017

Article source: 3andwich Design

Selected as one of the “historical and cultural villages” in Fujian Province, Shangping Village has been sustained by its agricultural tradition and Hakka culture. In Shangping, most of the villagers have the surname of Yang, who are the descendants of Captain Yang Zhen from Han Dynasty. Shangping Village has a complete rural feng shui pattern where two streams run around the village and gather at Shuikou area (the water gap, village entrance). There are many provincial-level cultural heritages such as the Tai Fu Tai Mansion, the Yang’s Ancestral Temple, Shezumiao Shrine, Zhaogongmiao Temple, etc. According to the legend, the great scholar Zhu Xi used to give lectures in Shangping and to leave with treasured calligraphy. Therefore, Shangping has a reputation for “literary village surrounded by water “.

ENGEL House in Andělská Hora, Czech Republic by Vit Maslo and David Richard Chisholm

Sunday, November 19th, 2017

Article source: Vit Maslo and David Richard Chisholm 

In a small community in the Western region of the Czech Republic, not far from the spa town of Karlovy Vary, this villa was designed as a recreational house for an accomplished man, his family and friends.  The architect’s intention was essentially to assimilate the romantic context of this small village, posited just under the massive cliffs and ruins of a Gothic castle, where the town originated. Andelska Hora (originally in German Engelsburg), belongs to a protected area of the country, and sits above 600 meters in altitude.  The local climate, as one could expect, has dramatic extremes.

House By The Brahmaputra in Guwahati, India by STUDIO ADAPL

Sunday, November 19th, 2017

Article source: STUDIO ADAPL 

The location of site with its magnificent views of the Udaigiri hills & the mighty Brahamaputra river has played a major role in the designing of this house. The site is contoured, with the top most level perched upto the height of 7m from the approach road level. This height facilitated an unobstructed view of the river on the NW & the hills on the SE side. The land cutting for the ramp, servant’s quarter & the party hall has been used to fill the steep slope on the NW side resulting to a step terrace. This terrace is used by the lady of the house to enjoy her hobby of gardening. A cantilever deck juts out over this terrace. This deck is part of the outdoor space of the party hall that was carved out below the main house. The main bungalow is positioned on the flat portion of the topmost level of the contour.

Grosvenor Square in Dublin, Ireland by SCULLION architects

Friday, November 17th, 2017

Article source: SCULLION architects 

The property is a three-storey terraced house on a fine Georgian Square.  The house is a Protected Structure (Listed) and occupied by a young family who use the lower ground floor as their primary living spaces rather the upper ground floor rooms, which would have originally been designed as the main reception rooms.  Houses of this type and era generally had servant’s quarters on the lower ground floor with the family living on the upper floors, raised away from the rear garden.  As a consequence, ceiling heights were generally lower. These lower ground floor rooms have become more coveted in modern times with the shift in domestic lifestyles towards a stronger relationship between living spaces and the garden than would have originally been the case when built in the late 19th Century.

The tree in the house in Jalisco, Mexico by Agraz Arquitectos

Friday, November 17th, 2017

Article source: Agraz Arquitectos 

This is a very special house, among other things because its main inhabitant, besides the family that lives here is a tree. Before we go any further it is important to observe that the emplacement of this house seems to be at odds with the street. Although seemingly so, it is quite the opposite. In this sense, since it’s longitudinal axis is oriented east-west (perpendicular to the street), and the most favorable orientation for the house in north-south, it was decided that the house accordingly so, should to look inwards rather than outwards. This means that it is not so much at odds with the street, but instead of looking directly at it, the project deals with the street through the creation of an important transition space between both the building and the street, which helps to change the pace while approaching the entrance. Underlying this exterior transitional space, lies the belief in the idea that each project, no matter how small, has a responsibility towards the creation of place in the city.
