Article source: Wannenmacher + Möller Architekten

The high demand for student housing is the reason for the initiation of this new development on the edge of Bielefeld’s city centre.  It was only in 2009 that a new land use plan was approved for this area, prescribing two-story detached houses with sloping roofs for this location on a narrow building plot. Following on from this, the draft provides for the establishment of four detached houses, each with two floors and a stacked storey.

Patio House in Velp, the Netherlands by Bloot Architecture

Wednesday, November 1st, 2017

Article source: Bloot Architecture

In Velp, the Netherlands, a sustainable refurbishment and extension of  a dilapidated 1950s villa has been completed.

The villa is situated on the edge of National Park Veluwezoom, a nature reserve. The many small rooms of the original house have been reduced to a small number of light and spacious spaces and a concrete extension with patio was added to the house. Although the various living spaces are in open connection with each other, the separate rooms retain their own intimate atmosphere.

SLIDE in Tokyo, Japan by APOLLO Architects & Associates Co., Ltd

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

Article source: APOLLO Architects & Associates Co., Ltd 

This small house in a residential district in eastern Tokyo is home to a couple and their young children. The dark grey galvalume cladding blends gently into the surrounding environment, as if it has been there for many years. Because the lot sits across the street from an elementary school, the clients requested a design that ensured privacy yet was as open as possible.

Casa Estudio Oficina in Lisbon, Portugal by José Castro Caldas

Monday, October 30th, 2017

Article source: José Castro Caldas

In order to continue exploring the interlude between Architecture and woodcraft – In which the Architect builds his own work, I arranged this 40 m2 studio. An opportunity to study / test within this space that would become my Home | Office and set up a laboratory of Architecture, where I could try out both space organization and execution solutions in detail. The hypothesis of resolving the adjustments, reconsidering badly anticipated decisions, imperfections as a carpenter does with his pieces, with the balance of who projected to solve the inherent deviations of the construction processes, here in a scale of Architecture, a kind of revivalism of the Arts and Crafts movement… To inhabit it, al- lows me to perceive its result.
