House in Vilnius, Lithuania by AKETURI ACHITEKTAI

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015

Article source: AKETURI ACHITEKTAI 

A house that is integrated into a densly urbanised slope of a historic Vilnius suburban area dictates a new quality and aesthetics. The structure comes in contrast with it‘s surrounding architecture – wooden wreckage from the beggining of the 20th century and gigantic residential houses of early Lithuanian indepencende years that might remind a small school rather than a residential house. Even so, the house remains cultured, eligible and appropriate while firmly stating the new level of architectural value.

Designed as a nuclear family residence for a couple and their three children, Gurmail residence is envisaged as a quiet, natural retreat in sync with the latest technological aspects for the globally travelled techie client.  Answering the challenge of creating a simple, automated yet distinguished design complying with the strict by-laws of the city, we decided to utilize the assets like a corner plot, favorable wind direction and excellent views to a well manicured garden in the front, to their maximum.

Stack in Slavonice, Czech Republic by e-MRAK – Martin Rajniš

Saturday, January 24th, 2015

Article source: e-MRAK – Martin Rajniš

The client purchased land in a protected nature reserve known as “Czech Canada”: wide meadows and rock outcroppings surrounded with pines. His wish was to build a stack here. What emerged is a house of nine modules of 3.60 m: the two modules at the edges are left open as terraces. The entire northern side is insulated and simultaneously forms, as in Japan, a long cabinet with sliding doors. The southern, eastern and western sides of the house are glazed from inside. The sliding dilation joint allows for fixed swinging frames with double glazing to be fitted even into the structure of the lumber stack, which can change its dimensions with damp or gradual drying of the wood. Experimentation with the hollow lumber stack here reached the level of a fully inhabitable house, where the tectonics of the hollow lumber stack simultaneously serve as a pleasant, firm external shading that prevents the emergence of a greenhouse effect inside.

RM HOUSE in Felgueiras, Portugal by FCC Arquitectura

Saturday, January 24th, 2015

Article source: FCC Arquitectura

Specification

To the existing implementation area (Farm House) is added to the establishment of 200,00m2 for housing construction.

The granary (8,00m2) existing will be recovered.

The existing buildings are in an advanced state of degradation. The interiors are in ruins. We decided to completely demolish the “core” of both and the roofs, recovering and consolidating part of the outer walls, which will be in memory of what existed. The new housing will be located within these limits, like a loose box, the new volumes are developed and are born from the ruins shaping itself to land following the natural curves of it.

Cylindrical Henley House in Victoria, Australia by Jackson Clements Burrows Pty Ltd Architects

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

Article source: Jackson Clements Burrows Pty Ltd Architects

Barwon Heads is in a period of significant change. Heritage overlays currently protect older fishing shacks whilst the less significant built fabric remaining in the seaside town is progressively being redeveloped and architecture is now significantly contributing to the evolution of this small coastal township. In this case a young family engaged JCB to design their new permanent residence which would replace a dilapidated 1950’s two storey house that was beyond repair. A sculptural building form emerged from the clients brief which jokingly requested a planetarium as an inclusion. This led to the exploration of circular forms and resulted in a circular skylight in the first floor living areas as a direct reference however the house was primarily conceived to immerse itself over time as a natural extension of the Ti-tree dominated landscape. The house is wrapped in as skin of vertical cedar battens (providing privacy and solar protection) which appear to emerge from the front fence intentionally confusing the relationship between built form and landscape.
