Alexandria House by Pivot Studio

Friday, January 9th, 2015

Article source: Pivot Studio

The development replaces the existing rear wing of the house with a new structure which simulates the form and mass of the previous construction. Whilst the pre-existing form and mass are retained and taken as cues for the new structure, the materiality is reinterpreted as a skin which wraps and contains the new space. The skin rejects the use of a ‘corner’ which defines the demarcation between wall and ceiling, here, both become the one treatment, the one surface, the one space. The familiar material of corrugated iron is chosen as the appropriate treatment for the skin, responding to the industrial context the house shares and as a reference to the previous structure on the site.

ANTOINE in Verbier, Switzerland by BUREAU A

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Article source: BUREAU A

The mountains have the power to call for feelings of fascination and fear at the same time. Switzerland has a strong tradition of observing the Alps, living with them, hiding inside them. The awe and the anxiety that this monumental landscape appeals is reflected in the writings of Charles-Ferdinand Ramuz, one of the most important Swiss writers. His novels, Derborence, describes the massive rock fall that covered the pastures of the valley of Lizerne in 1714. Antoine, the main character, survives seven weeks under the rocks before he manages to reach his village, and life.

TWO HOUSES CONDE in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Hitzig Militello arquitectos (HMA)

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Article source: Hitzig Militello arquitectos (HMA)

Connections

From the beginning this project had to respond to two different voices, or two clients. Both required the same amount of square meters for their future homes. It is perhaps the greatest achievement of this project, having understood how to complete the entire buildable volume equally for both owners, and without losing the ability to have access to almost all of the terrain. The strategy chosen was to cross-distribute the meters that corresponded to each owner, so that both units rotate through the central axis of the patio in a centrifugal manner. To achieve the crossed connection of the two properties without wasting useful meters, we took the decision to “externalize” the stairs, like sleeve-bridges connecting both units.

Article source: Atelier Moderno

A designer, his two sons, and their tireless terrier Winston share a small 1950’s building that stands rather unnoticed among its neighbors in the Mile-Ex district. The robust walls of this former workshop, however, hide a jewel conversion within.

SITE

The Project is located in Convento (Chone) a rural area in the Ecuadorian coast, in an overwhelming natural environment where the presence of large forest of bamboo, a small creek running in front of the field and two rainforest mountains that surround the plot, became the perfect scenario to be potentiated through the project and generate the required relation between the owners and the landscape.

HSM House in Yehiam, Israel by SO Architecture

Friday, January 2nd, 2015

Article source: SO Architecture

HSM family house was built in kibbutz Yehiam, where Oded Rozenkier, one of the owners of SO Architecture grew up as a child.

This is a one of three houses built by SO Architecture side by side in kibbutz Yehiam. The house was built with a limited budget, using simple building materials in its base – concrete, wood and local stone. It’s a house of delicate and well thought architectural touches, unique perspectives, putting to use the calm beauty of the given lot which includes a moderate slope and a view towards a natural oak forest.

Article source: michael jantzen studio

The Oak Tree Ring House is a new kind of interactive place in which to live. It was designed specifically for a temperate climate. The structure consists of a large circular steel support frame in the form of four concentric rings that radiate out around a large oak tree planter in a central open courtyard. There is an array of solar cells mounted around the perimeter of the courtyard that are used to supply the electrical and hot water needs of the house.

Fujigaoka T in Kanagawa, Japan by ChikaraOhno / sinato

Friday, January 2nd, 2015

Article source: ChikaraOhno / sinato

This project is a home for a family of three in one unit of a twenty-six year old apartment building.

Although the previous ceiling height was a uniform 2450mm, after checking the structural drawings we realized that the existing height was the minimum required due to the placement of a services pit above, with the slab actually much higher in places, so we proceeded in planning the layout considering this height.
