Sandan Villas in Melaka, Malaysia by OVA Studio Ltd

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

Article source: OVA Studio Ltd

As part of a large residential development in Melaka, Malaysia, that consists of more than 1000 houses of various types, Sandan Villas are only 7 in total, the high end products of this entire scheme.

The concept is based on an decomposition of the house into open boxes, where the edges seems to form a ribbon leading from one end to the other, from the entrance to the infinity pool, while preserving intimacy and orienting the main spaces toward the open views.

Clovelly House in Sydney, Australia by rolf ockert design

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Article source: rolf ockert design

Having seen some of our earlier work the owners of this extraordinary oceanfront site invited us to submit ideas about what a new house there could look like. They had lived in a simple cottage on the site for several years before and therefore had an intimate familiarity with the advantages and disadvantages of living in this spectacular but exposed spot.

The design process, complex due to several defining key issues inherent to the site, ended up taking us through some radically different sketch options before settling on the one that was finally pursued.

52 COUNCIL FLATS IN NANTERRE, France by Colboc Franzen & Associés

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Article source: Colboc Franzen & Associés

The Hoche ecodistrict is rising from the ground on old industrial sites. It has to mediate between the scale of the Chemin-de-l’Ile park and the A14 motorway that cuts through it, and the far smaller scale of an area of detached houses dating back to the 1930s. The two plots selected for the development are a good illustration of the challenge. The housing is divided into housing blocks that are look onto public space and face the eight-storey towers between them and the motorway and a square, but in the centre of the block are houses of the same dimensions as the existing detached houses.

A Pound of flesh for 50p in south London, England by Alex Chinneck

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Article source: Alex Chinneck

‘A Pound of Flesh for 50p’, by Alex Chinneck is a life size construction of a house made entirely from wax bricks that has been gradually melting since October, as part of London Bankside’s MERGE Festival, celebrating art and science. The house is due to finish melting this week and will leave a pile of wax with just the roof on the pavement. The artwork explores the science of melting points and celebrates the history of an area that once housed the largest candle-making factory in Southwark. Architectural features such as double-glazed windows, drainpipes and a tiled roof will enhance the installation and bring it to life.

THE COCONUT LODGE in Hong Kong, China by OVA Studio Ltd

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Article source: OVA Studio Ltd

Harvested from plantations that procure income to millions of people, coconut wood is a sustainable product by excellence. The cycle of coconut production, felling/processing and re-plantation, guaranties a sound renewable supply that doesn’t impact the environment. After being used all their life coconuts, the trees become senile around 60 years old. They can then be cut and used for construction, furniture and decoration, which will constitute a windfall profit for the farmer and an excellent material for sustainable Architecture.

307 SHOTWELL STREET in San Francisco, California by Todd Davis Architecture

Saturday, November 15th, 2014

Article source: Todd Davis Architecture

1. The property was not in great shape when the client purchased it: foreclosed in 2011, it endured much vandalism and a habitual squatter. The front of the property was very industrial in appearance, with a tall wooden fence built around the board-formed concrete garage. The combined structure was topped with a large metal electrical pylon (see attached photo). All street-facing surfaces had been painted a putty grey color.
