Lincoln Street Residence in Bethesda, Maryland by EL STUDIO

Friday, March 9th, 2018

Article source: EL STUDIO

This modest renovation resists the current inner-ring suburban trend towards demolition of older, smaller homes in favor of new over-scaled ‘farmhouses.’ The clients, a young family with two small children wanted more space for play and individual bedrooms but expressed a desire not to ‘lose one another’ in a home too vast or impersonal. Their one-story bungalow, a relic of the first wave of suburban development in this area, has been expanded through the careful integration of appropriately scaled additional program and volume. The modest scale of the addition both responds to the client’s programmatic needs and limits the environmental footprint of the proposal. A carport and efficiency apartment on the first floor were removed to make way for a new addition containing a first-floor playroom and a partial second story with side-by-side bedrooms for the children connected through a ‘Jack & Jill’ bathroom as well as a new Master Suite. The family room’s double-height volume binds all of the above and provides access to the garden beyond through a covered porch tucked under the Master Suite. Strategically placed south-facing roof apertures capture and direct daylight deep into the north-facing playroom and porch year-round, reducing the need for artificial lighting. New expansive windows frame views to a mature Japanese maple tree in the yard.

Plastic House II in Gothenburg, Sweden by Unit Arkitektur AB

Friday, March 9th, 2018

Article source: Unit Arkitektur AB 

West of Gothenburg lies Sweden’s fourth biggest island – Hisingen. Travelling from the centre of Gothenburg towards the western side of Hisingen, you first pass Volvos industrial production units before reaching the coast and the ferry terminal which connects Hisingen to the northern archipelago.

Just north of Hjulvik´s ferry terminal, a shift in the landscape occurs – from Hisingens plains (former seafloor) to Bohusläns coastal landscape with its ancient and sweeping outcrops of gneiss and granite. The last kilometre to the site winds and rises before finally you are rewarded with a great view back towards the ferry terminal. This area is called Hästevik.

Marie’s Wardrobe in London, England by TSURUTA ARCHITECTS

Friday, March 9th, 2018

Article source: TSURUTA ARCHITECTS

An impressive large staircase in a turn of the 20th century house made the circulation generous, light and airy, but its dominance compromised the entire layout. The challenge was to replace this once favoured staircase whilst enhancing this previous spacious quality.

The proposal is on a triangular urban plot of land covering an area of 940.80 m2. The topography includes a 7.60 m slope down from west to east, so the elevations in the corner converge with those on the surrounding roads.

House 3/6, Dongducheon in South Korea by Yang jin seok (Y GROUP)

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018

Article source: Yang jin seok (Y GROUP)

The third house. A house opened to sky at Dongducheon.

It’s a house of three members of family, father drives a truck and delivers mattresses, mother is convalescing at home after the cancel surgery, and a daughter who always care about family, a middle school student. Building a 40-square-meter of single house was possible for this family. However, we decided to build a three – story building with a parking lot for a truck and a rest place for mother. For she likes reading books with daughter. Also, we made a small but solid kitchen space for the mother who cooked on the outer floor because it was not ventilated. I needed a design to satisfy space such as a parking lot, a family room, 2 rooms, a toilet, a kitchen, a study, and small yard.

Grand Canal Street in Dublin2, Ireland by Scullion Architects

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018

Article source: Scullion Architects

This project involves the transformation of a Georgian three-storey terraced house near Dublin’s Docklands from three bed-sits into one light-filled ‘upside-down’ house with a new black tower in the garden.

The original Georgian property comprised three floors of accommodation, which had been converted into separate studio bed-sits on each floor.  Most of the original decorative plasterwork and joinery features of the home had been lost, with the exception of the main hallway and staircase, which were reasonably intact.

Passive Townhouses in Vallastaden, Sweden by Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018

Article source: Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture

In Linköping’s new district of Vallastaden, Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture has built a townhouse that achieves a passive house standard with four apartments. The townhouse consists of four volumes that differ in shape and facade patterns. The relationship is visible in the colours and expressions of the facade plates. In addition to each apartment there is a small courtyard with bicycle storage and a garden with patio and storage room for outdoor furniture. The storage buildings have green roofs and the façade is treated with an environmentally friendly wood protection and is grayed out over the years. The apartments have a flexible third floor with high ceilings that can be used as studio, playroom or additional bedroom. Each apartment has its own theme that is seen in the kitchen and bathroom furnishings.

House in Tschengla, Austria by Innauer-Matt Architects ZT GmbH

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018

Article source: Innauer-Matt Architects ZT GmbH

Most owners use their holiday homes for only a couple of weeks a year, leaving them as empty objects in their respective surrounding for the rest of the time. This is, however, not the case with House on Tschengla, which has become a fully-fledged second home for its owners. Located a mere 30 minute drive from their flat in the Western Austrian town of Feldkirch, it allows them to live in two worlds, between the lively density of a town and the vast solitude of the mountains.
