Checkered House in Tokyo, Japan by Takeshi Shikauchi Architect Office

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015

Article source: Takeshi Shikauchi Architect Office

This is a house in the urban city using wood.

It is getting more and more difficult to use wood for housing in the city. We see wooden houses but it costs a lot of money for disaster prevention and maintenance.

HOUSE 37m in Hohenems, Austria by Juri Troy Architects

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

Article source: Juri Troy Architects

37 metres long is the single-family home that lies in the Rheintal of Vorarlberg in between the woods and water meadows. The slender and lengthy shape is a product of the property boundaries and makes for a straightforward exception among the neighbouring structures. The floor plan is organised as a sequence of spaces that allows for a practical arrangement of all the ancillary rooms and eventually leads to the generous and open living and working spaces.

RM House in Mar de Ajó, Argentina by Alric Galindez Arquitectos

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

Article source: Alric Galindez Arquitectos

The Pampa and the sea are known for being extensive and horizontal landscape whose limits are diluted in the horizon. The house stands in the diffuse border where both landscape interact. Understanding its physical location, the house tries to experiment with both landscapes consequently thinking of a common area with visuals towards both the sea and the Pampa´s landscape. Reinforcing the idea of focusing on both landscapes and considering the needed shelter towards the constant northern winds and southern storms, the interior spaces are organized responding to these conditions. The terrace on the sea side has no roof, in order to capture sunlight and the terrace on the country´s side has one in order to shelter from the sun and area´s dominant winds.

PEDREGAL HOUSE by Garza Iga Arquitectos

Sunday, May 24th, 2015

Article source: Garza Iga Arquitectos

The house sits atop a hill that overlooks the city, this was the main argument we had to put the two main bedrooms facing forward. The bedrooms are two separate volumes that intersect the main concrete “shell” of the house, the front and back are kept open with huge glass walls; to let the most sunlight in at the back side, and to observe the view at the front.

House in Kamisawa, Japan by Tato Architects

Sunday, May 24th, 2015

Article source: Tato Architects

This building is a reconfiguration of a traditional Japanese wooden house. Its wooden frames were exposed after the removal of unnecessary parts. Only by inserting curved walls into it, spatial functions were created. A similar challenge was experienced in the process of designing “Hut with the Arc Wall”, a public toilet in Shodoshima. There, space was defined by a 9mm steel curved wall, which was built under the wooden roof structure by reference to traditional soy sauce factories in that area. An inspiration from cedar barrels of say source was formalized in the curved wall, which showed an aesthetic of self- supporting structure. The only thing to be regrettable was newly built wooden frames. Ideally, it should have been moved from an old house around that area and rebuilt in a new place, but the required tight schedule didn’t allow us to spend time to look for a suitable existing building. However, since then, we have seen it as a distinctive potential for reconfigurations to divide space with curved walls, which is not related to the outer structure.

BAHAMAS HOUSE/HARBOUR ISLAND by Oppenheim Architecture+Design

Sunday, May 24th, 2015

Article source: Oppenheim Architecture+Design

Harbour Island is a relaxed yet luxurious getaway perched in the surreal cerulean waters of the Atlantic edge of the Great Bahama bank. In this earnest and timeless place, the architecture for this private residence is conceived as simultaneously powerful, yet comfortable; primitive, yet innovative; casual, yet elegant; raw, yet refined. The result is a sensual and sensitive experience, reduced to its essence through the use of elemental forms and sincere materiality and detailing. The most dramatic view of the ocean is obtained towards the crest of the dunes, the location of this modest home.

GSX HOUSE by Agustí Costa Estudi de Disseny

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

Article source: Agustí Costa Estudi de Disseny

I’m used to project housing new plant in parallel to the execution of the structure and the walls of the house. This is one of these houses and, like others, has preserved the exterior architecture. Inside, it has a very special characteristic derived from a very slow development, of the project, and then their execution on site. The result, a project completely tailored to the aspirations of customers, materials, colours and textures but, above all, a proposal that has opened a new experiences of living and forged a sincere friendship between clients and designers. The interconnected open spaces, the rigorous forms and light, are characteristic features of this house, which we also designed the garden.

G House by NUCA Studio

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

Article source: NUCA Studio

It was the owners’ lifestyle that provided the starting point in the design of this house: the family is always surrounded by relatives and friends, which implies a high degree of house occupancy every weekend, as well as many ongoing activities. The building was thus designed as a shifted, irregular volume, ensuring the existence of several “centres of interest” on each of the two levels, and, at the same time, the opening of several areas towards the outside.

PM House in Aveiro, Portugal by M2.senos

Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

Article source: M2.senos

The house is located in a residential zone of Aveiro, in the northwest town center boundary. Its surrounding environment is characterized by heterogeneity of buildings, not always with a clear identity as a whole. Although with regards to deployments and distance there is some coherence. Appealing to some appeasement, there’s a similar volumetric mimicry, keeping the typology of 4 fronts and removals to the lot boundary. Setting a visual balance between pairs contributes to an improvement of this urban quality.

HVM HOUSE in Aveiro, Portugal by M2.senos

Article source: M2.senos

The house is located in a residential area near to the University of Aveiro.

In order to approach the formal language of the university the volume is discreet and compact, coated with a brick façade witch gives it a visual balance and supports the integration into the surrounding.
