Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

Article source: ALPHAVILLE architects 

This is a residential house located in the densely populated periphery of Osaka, surrounded by small traditional commercial houses. By combining simple manipulations and traditional elements such as the earthen floor (Japanese Doma), we created a space that is simple but has dynamic nuances.

Wooden Family House in the Village in Dobříš, Czech Republic by Mimosa Architects

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

Article source: BoysPlayNice

The house is located in the colony of weekend cottages near a game preserve, which colony consists of small sized quaint houses, each of them being built according the taste and skill of its individual owner. The houses, mostly “non-kissed by architecture”, pay tribute to individual owner’s capriciousness and improvisation.

As to its shape our house seems, a little, a kind of freak, too. Its forms were motivated by the wish of its future occupiers to have an unusual, environmentally soft house (“no box”) built of natural materials.

Alves da Veiga in Porto, Portugal by Pedro Ferreira Architecture Studio

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Article source: Pedro Ferreira Architecture Studio

The Alves da Veiga project aimed to reconvert an old typography, built in the nineteenth century and abandoned for decades, in a set of six apartments, maintaining all the structure and spatial concept of preexistence.

The original building, though appearing from the outside only two storeys, in fact contained a curious floor + mezzanine organization that actually embodied four habitable floors.

Casa Kwantes in Rotterdam, Netherlands by MVRDV

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Article source: MVRDV 

Casa Kwantes bases itself around the clients’ desire for seclusion and privacy, whilst having a maximum of daylight and open living spaces. From the road, the bare brick wall offers only a partial glimpse into the property and family life through an opening of the white brickwork façade – a subtle indented entrance leading into an initially dark and enclosed entrance hall. In contrast, the reverse of the property completely opens up to the south with curved windows following the entire winding façade wrapped around a central olive tree.

Touguinhó III House in Vila do Conde, Portugal by Raulino Silva Arquitecto Unipessoal Lda

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Article source: Raulino Silva Arquitecto Unipessoal Lda 

On the site, that was being used as a planting field, we found the typical granite walls, a stone pit, some fruit trees and bushes. Those walls were recovered and the trees, the bushes and the stone pit were kept in their original place, in order to preserve the identity of the site.

The strong slope of the topography of about 5 meters between the street and the top of the site defined the planning of the house in two floors, nevertheless it was sought that both floors had direct connection with the outside garden.

House Between Walls in Huelva, Spain by Esculpir el Aire’s Architect

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Article source: Esculpir el Aire’s Architect 

A vertical surface -on the left side-, standing out respect to the other one, gathers and exemplifies the long and raised aspects which are drawn from the Almonte’s tradition. The other surface -on the right side- assembles horizontally and oblique elements of the modern culture. A soft displacement of the main surface emphasizes the vertical dividing line between both ‘ styles. ‘ A great folded beam avoids beasts getting through, allowing to tie them. Moreover, its flat top makes possible the support of the gintonic of the horsemen who always visit us.

PO87 in Belgium by AWAA

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Article source: AWAA

This private commission for a single family home is located in a wooded residential area in Belgium. The house is a response to strict legislations on implantation and surface occupancy, as well as a municipality desire to promote housing in the neighborhood.

During the development, we proposed to the promoter an added value: a construction that would be energetically addressed, according to the passive house standards.
