Floating-roof House in Hyogo, Japan by y+M design office

Sunday, March 11th, 2018

Article source: y+M design office 

We planned the house for a family with small children in a residential area in Kobe City.

We had to keep both privacy and daylighting for the family because they were concerned about line of sight from other houses which are located in sloping tiers. We designed dual roofs structure, the floating roof and the lower roof. Outer walls cover the house like curtains which are hanged from the floating roof. Alley Terrace connects from the south side into the house inside. This structure makes enough ventilation and daylighting.

Villa Kget in Ensuès-la-Redonne, France by Bonte & Migozzi

Sunday, March 11th, 2018

Article source: Bonte & Migozzi

Facing north south, with a triangular form, the land is of a small size (785m2), which is why the house plan is part of the administrative limits of the parcel’s removal. With its endemic plants – a vast majority of pines and agaves – , its low walls made of stones and its extraordinary mediterranean view, this protected place doesn’t have sanitation or possibilities of access for the construction site. Inhabited by mediterranean culture and grecque mythology, Christophe Migozzi revisits the primitive atmosphere of the cottage by reinterpreting a contemporary version of “Ulysse’s vessel that surfs on a slope like a crab trawler.”

The Screen in Bierbeek, Belgium by DMOA architects

Sunday, March 11th, 2018

Article source: DMOA architects

A beautiful plot with endless views… but unfortunately next to a truckers company. How to make the most of these two contradictory influences? Our concept: we placed a narrow, long and tall house on the far right of the parcel. The property itself acts as a screen to cover up the unsightly, noisy neighbour on the right. The right side of the house has a blind facade, while the other side opens freely towards a large, sunny garden, where there is little evidence left of the fleet and accompanying roar. Or how everything falls into place by an atypical choice of implantation and volume.

Extension and renovation Amsterdam in Netherlands by derksen|windt architecten

Sunday, March 11th, 2018

Article source: derksen|windt architecten

Our clients in Amsterdam gave us the opportunity to make a design for their home, do the elaboration and guide the project until completion. They live in a beautiful and popular antebellum residential block with a large courtyard garden, which is divided in private backyards. This spacious backyard provided the ideal opportunity to transform the already beautiful dwelling into a contemporary family house. We created a large entrance, many bedrooms, a large bathroom, and a beautiful, light-flooded, kitchen.

KleinOud in Niederschönhausen, Berlin by brandt+simon architekten

Sunday, March 11th, 2018

Article source: brandt+simon architekten

A semi-detached house in the north of Berlin had become to small for the to date family of four. The house from the 1930s with rooms all smaller than 15 m2 and a ceiling height of 2,70m had been extended with attachments for bathroom, kitchen and vestibule several times through the last century. As result the living room at the ground floor had lost its connection to the garden and the centrally located dining area – the functional center of the house – had become de facto inlying.

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.

French fashion guru Genevieve Antoine Dariaux has smartly described how a refined and well-bred lifestyle could be shaped through terms of our life in ,”
Elegance is harmony, similar to beauty. Simply, beauty is a gift from God, but elegance is an ideal result of art; elegance was born in the process of cultural cultivation, and grown in it as well.”
