“House in Trees” in Echo Park, Los Angeles by Anonymous Architects

Sunday, February 5th, 2017

Article source: Anonymous Architects

The site is characterized by its remote feeling and mature trees; this despite being surrounded by dense urban development. It is an unusual paradox to have such a natural setting that occurs in the middle of Los Angeles – a city known for its endless sprawl and crawling traffic.

MUGU HOUSE in California by Stephane Malka Architecture

Sunday, February 5th, 2017

Article source: Malka Architecture

Located at Mugu Point California, fifty miles away from Los Angeles where Malka Architecture just opened its new studio, the Mugu House is nested on Malibu’s Hills porosities.

The project benefits from the existing topography of the actual site ; the result is a zero impact on the surrounding nature, an ecological project in immersion with the rock, its vegetation and its thermal variations.

Mediterrani 32 in Sant Pol de Mar, Spain by Estudi Isern Associats

Friday, February 3rd, 2017

Article source: Estudi Isern Associats

The project for this house emerged from a very simple premise, to build on a very steep piece of land with a gradient of almost 100%, boasting wonderful views and on a tight budget.

It was this highly complicated plot of land, surrounded by pine trees, that defined a good part of this project. The land, and its perspectives, constantly changing as the hours pass, the colour of the trees, the movement of sun and shadows.

Home Sweet Home in Fossò, Italy by 3ndy Studio

Friday, February 3rd, 2017

Article source: 3ndy Studio

An home is the place where you feel good every time you enter inside, a sort of shelter inside the town. Not too big and not too small. The way  you think about your life out of the work is your home. It Is the place for you and for your family, with all the utilities but in the same time simple and easy to maintain. And also the home has not to consume too much energy and it’s better if the energy comes from the sun. This home is made in part with ancient materials, that come from the grandparent’s old house,  as the wood and the bricks that recall to memory the roots of the family. New materials as Corian, are used in the furniture and the stairs. The atmosphere inside this country house is extremely warm and is due to the color of natural material used for the interior wall and for the floor.

Friday, February 3rd, 2017

Article source: a21 studĩo

The house is nostalgia for Cham ethnic’s traditional house with a modern living space. The aim of the design is making a house using all familiar local materials and nomal building methods, so the design can speak itself with minimum care for artificial lighting and material use. The house is a 45degree diagonal block, divided the 18mx20m site into 2 triangle gardens. From here, all the views inside the house and toward gardens are framed in various ways – from the combination of basic elements: white brick walls, wooden beams, openings and the roof.

House Sch in Bregenz, Austria by Dietrich | Untertrifaller

Friday, February 3rd, 2017

Article source: Dietrich | Untertrifaller 

Built on an extremely steep piece of land with an area of only 450m², Dietrich│Untertrifaller designed this single family home to best fit the constraints of the site. While a black painted concrete core ties the house to the hill and contains all service rooms, a more open wooden structure was chosen for the living area and bedrooms. The form of the home allows for the focal point of all the interior spaces to be the forests and the Rhine valley below.

Gallarda House in Almería, Spain by José Francisco García-Sánchez, architecto

Friday, February 3rd, 2017

Article source: José Francisco García-Sánchez, architecto

«Las Negras» is a small town in Níjar, Almeria (Spain), with fishing tradition. The settlement is situated betwen a cape called «El Puntón» and the «Cerro Negro» (black mountain) cliff: emblem, icon and, surely, town´s origin.

The Gallarda House, is a holiday residence that, probably, it will end up becoming the permanent residence of a young couple with an intense social life. It is a house of ample dimensions in its public area —living and dining room— and it is always connected with the outdoor area: terraced plot, where it will be planted pine tree, as much as the pool deck. Therefore, it proposed a life of simple acts, without sacrifice the daily pleasures: water a plants, sit to read under a tree or dive into the water. The Mediterranean architecture was always that simple white frame, sometimes invisible which man comes to happiness almost without realizing it.

Casa Tabares de Cala in Canary Islands, Spain by Alejandro Beautell, architect

Friday, February 3rd, 2017

Article source: Alejandro Beautell, architect

The renovated single family house is located in the historical city center of La Laguna, Tenerife, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Priori to the renovation, the house was ruined due to the abandonment which it had suffered for decades.

It is a traditional patio-house with a structure of massive walls covered by a wooden structure made of Canarian pine called tea. Its composition is simple and its strictly simetric facade still shows the dignity of an old house of the 18th  century. During the course of years the house had been transformed, enlarged, and sometimes damaged.

EPILPSY RESIDENTIAL CARE HOME in Dommartin-lès-Toul, France by ATELIER MARTEL

Thursday, February 2nd, 2017

Article source: ATELIER MARTEL

The site is located between pastures and activity areas in the semi-urban fringe located at the outskirts of the small town of Dommartin-lès-Toul. It extends on a gentle slope in front of the parking of the former American hospital and opens up to the panorama of the Moselle valley.

The value system based on which historical cities have been built has been substituted by the logic of traffic flow and lower cost. And even if it is unable to produce any urban quality, the so called “activity area” continues to be, most of the time, the place of work of contemporary architects, as it is where the cities expand and develop. At the same time, these unrestrained city fringes represent a source of imagination for the architects, a comparator, a particular landscape, extremely contemporary, hence fascinating, and therefore; able to convey emotions and memories.

13 SELF-CONSTRUCTED HOMES in Palenciana, Spain by elisavalero arquitectura

Thursday, February 2nd, 2017

Article source: elisavalero arquitectura

The architecture belongs to the place, which conditions it and makes it singular. The urban layout and topography, and its ensuing definition as an observation space, as well as its insertion in the landscape, the lighting conditions and the use of materials are at the root of an idea that has materialized here in a way that continues popular Andalusian traditions—white houses in a white village.
