Ecocapsule by Nice Architects Ltd

Thursday, July 16th, 2015

Article source: Nice Architects Ltd

The first truly independent micro-home

Story of the Ecocapsule has begun in the 2008 when our architectural studio Nice architects participated in Andes Sprout Society idea competition to design small housing unit for artist. Ecocapsule v1 was bearing three pivotal design features: round shape to minimize energy losses, water collection capability and mobility. Design was not successful In the competition, but breaking point for the project was when inhabitat.com choose Ecocapsule to their selection of the most interesting picks from competition. Massive amount of inquiries persuaded us to develop this project further.  Unfortunately technology of 2008 was not ready for truly independent house.

Maison Terrebonne in Montréal, Canada by la SHED architecture

Wednesday, July 15th, 2015

Article source: v2com

Born from an extreme transformation of a typical 90’s bungalow, the “Maison Terrebonne” is located on a vast wooded plot of land. Although certainly contemporary, the new residence is built on the same foundations as the original house while preserving one of its principal characteristics; split levels. This principle is at the very heart of this building’s new architecture. This thorough building overhaul, in combination with a larger upstairs, was designed in order to meet the needs of a person living alone. Despite a small 1500 square foot living space, the residence offers vast open rooms with an abundance of natural lighting.

MORRIS HOUSE in Los Angeles, California by Martin Fenlon Architecture

Friday, July 10th, 2015

Article source: Martin Fenlon Architecture

This project is the articulation of an ideal put into action. A polished steel circle, gently overs over the public plaza. The size of the circle exceeds the given area of the plaza, so one end lifts up so that the rest of the circle can comfortably situate itself into the given area. In doing this, two very different conditions are negotiated and resolved, both in a literal and figurative sense.

The polished steel top surface of the circle reflects its surroundings, bringing the sky above down to the ground below.

Vega Cottage in Norway by Kolman Boye Architects

Friday, July 10th, 2015

Article source: Kolman Boye Architects

The house stands on the island of Vega in the Norwegian archipelago not far from the polar circle. The site is distinctive for its grand and harsh northern landscape with wide panoramas of the Norwegian Sea and the jagged mountains rising from it. Seemingly growing from the landscape, the house sits on a rock beneath a granite shoulder negotiating the uneven terrain. As not to disturb the dominant view towards the sea, access to the house is given through a narrow natural ravine densely grown with gnarled birch shrubs and laid out with sea-sand from the nearby shore. The surrounding landscape remains untouched and wild. The large windows of the house face three directions, each with its strong unique characteristic. They are simple and robust in detailing and the optically white glass conveys undisturbed frames of the ocean, the mountain range and the bedrock. Organised on two levels adapting to the terrain, the plan is compact, providing generous social spaces within a limited floor area. The upper level is comprised of smaller scale bedrooms and family rooms, whereas the lower level is a large gallery-like space structured around a stone hearth. Completed in linseed oil painted pine with untreated birch skirting, frames and reveals – the interior is kept subtle with a character of being hand-built – promoting tactile qualities and the attractive patina developed over time.
