Gibbston Valley House in New Zealand by Team Green Architects

Friday, October 28th, 2016

Article source: Team Green Architects

A young family bought a fantastic sunny section in Gibbston Valley and wanted a Passive House. This house was designed utilising all Passive House principles. It achieves a high level of energy efficiency due to its compact form in which the main rooms are orientated to follow the suns path. Air-tightness, balanced heat exchange, high levels of insulation, and thermally broken windows, all help to mean that this house did not require any heating until well into June, when the fire was first lit.

Silent House IV – The ovenbird nest in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Zapata – Jáuregui arquitectos asociados

Friday, October 28th, 2016

Article source: Zapata – Jáuregui arquitectos asociados

The Silent Houses have much to say. They are searching for new experiences of living. They are isolated from the world, because they feel somewhat hostile. They are not interested in the context, but sometimes they can look the outside . They are hard and dry, but the inside is neutral, appropriated and unstable. They are home to a hermit life.

The property is located in a residential neighborhood of medium density.

House Aartrijke in Zedelgem, Belgium by Atelier Tom Vanhee

Friday, October 28th, 2016

Article source: Atelier Tom Vanhee

The former farmhouse is situated in an agricultural area east of the village of Aartrijke, Belgium. The typology of the existing building will be used in a contemporary way to enlarge the dwelling. There will be two new volumes with a pitched roof slide against the existing volume. Two chimney shaped skylights will create light and a view on to the first floor. A third chimney will house the air outlet of the heat pump. Old and new collaborate together, but both will remain visible. The new volumes will be finished in wood. The old brick exterior will be felt inside when entering the house. The new stairs will be a reminder of the old mouldering stair that was removed. The buttresses and strips of brick in the floor show the former layout of the barn. The double height in the dwelling will make the living areas more spacious. A new preweathered zinc roof will connect the buildings into a whole. In addition to the replacement of the old joinery with new windows, the old volume will open up to the landscape on the rear side. The construction will be characterized by simple uniform windows according to the golden ratio.

The Forest House in Valencia, Spain by Ramon Esteve Estudio

Friday, October 28th, 2016

Article source: Ramon Esteve Estudio

The House in the Forest is settled in an extensive residential area. A large pine forest on the plot itself is the closest surroundings of the house.

On the basis of four stone walls, we generate prismatic volumes that fragment the space, identifying each room. The interstitial area between the parts is covered by an element of wood, which acts as a distributor and connector between the spaces of the house.

Article source: Caramel Architekten

In the neighbour’s garden, Densification can also be possible in built up settlement areas of one family houses. The property of House D is located in the middle of a block of buildings, which are surrounded by the local streets, and each building is part of the formation of a big wonderful garden right in the heart of the block. The generous building regulation allows us to build on all properties up to at least a quarter of the whole property area and thereby creates possibilities to divide properties and the densification of the green spaces.

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Article source: Re-Format LLp

The mature and secluded site is located in Haslemere on the edge of the Surrey Hills, enjoying stunning, long ranging views towards the South Downs and beyond.

The client’s brief was for a detached ancillary building to the existing house, to provide an indoor pool and spa, gym, bicycle workshop and glasshouse. Above all the building had to be beautiful, finely crafted at every detail using the highest quality materials. The Pool House needed to function effortlessly in a variety of environments, whether for a relaxing solitary swim or a family pool party for 30.
