Screen House in Singapore by Materium

Tuesday, September 11th, 2018

Article source: Materium

Conjoined to its immediate neighbor on one side, this semi-detached house in Singapore separates from its neighbour at the other, by a mere 4 meters. Local planning regulations stipulates this minimum 4 meter wide airspace, which often becomes the maximum as owners more often than not, build to the broadest allowable width on the typically deep and narrow plots. The requisites for daylight and ventilation, at this degree of proximity, gives rise to the question of privacy.

House in Inari, Japan by Taichi Nishishita Architect & Associates

Tuesday, September 11th, 2018

Article source: Taichi Nishishita Architect & Associates 

The site had a depth in the north and south when viewed from the road side, buildings were built on both sides, basically it was like a closed dead end. On the other hand, when looking out from the inside of the site, there was a lot of sight and light from the urbanization adjustment area spreading along the south road. Coupled with the slight difference in height between the site and the road, I felt a sense that the mountain ranges from the near view field to the far side Iyo mountains are strongly connected to the ground.

House in Ichitsubo, Japan by Taichi Nishishita Architect & Associates

It is a compact site located at the most innermost place of the new subdivision. Despite this compact site, dare not to build a building on full of the site, securing lighting and ventilation by securing a private open space on the south, making connection with the external space. In addition, we planned to be a rich approach even on a small site by keeping it low relative to the road and placing it in a deep eaves below the entrance.

Intermediate Stories in Singapore by HYLA Architects

Monday, September 10th, 2018

When the planning authority revised the planning guidelines for landed housing by allowing more flexibility in the internal layouts, it gaves us the opportunity to re-examine the typology for an intermediate terrace house. Typically, the main problem for houses of this type is that the living areas, being located on the ground floor would look into the car parking at the front. In this house, an extra level has been inserted making this a four storey house in a 2.5 storey zone.

Nutley Terrace in Hampstead, London by Belsize Architects

Monday, September 10th, 2018

Article source: Belsize Architects

These two new houses on a constrained brownfield site offer contemporary design within a predominantly Edwardian environment. We overcame challenges including complex party wall conditions, a tight footprint, conservation area setting, constraints regarding the relationship with neighbouring buildings and the presence of a rail tunnel beneath. The homes are spacious, light and airy, with generous external terraces and balconies compensating for the lack of garden space.

By the Way House in Poland by Robert Konieczny – KWK Promes

The investor had his own vision of the interior arrangement with the living area on the first floor. Additionally, he wanted to place a house in the middle of the plot, far away from the river, where a marina was supposed to be. We decided to wrap functions arranged by the client and connect: entry, house and marina. It brought us to the idea of the ribbon, which was stretched across the entire area. First, from the entry as a road, then twisted and shaping ceilings and walls of the house, wrapping the interior. Next, the ribbon was unrolled as a pier connecting the raised living room with the garden level. Then wriggling – the ribbon ran towards the river. So the road pierced the house. The garage with a glass wall interfered the living space.

Hamptons Residence in New York by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

Sunday, September 9th, 2018

Article source: Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

Set among fields along the south facing coast of Long Island and within a short walk to the ocean, this Hamptons residence is a quiet refuge for a growing family and offers extraordinary views of the surrounding landscape.

The residence lies parallel to the water, looking south into preserved agricultural land with the distant sound of waves breaking along the ocean shore, and north to a field of wildflowers and native grasses. The plan bends slightly to maximize views of the coastline. A path from the parking court leads to a linear walkway of silver-grey weathered wood planks that passes through the entry foyer of the house and out to the pool beyond.

Edificio Jacinto Chiclana in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Ça Arquitectura

Sunday, September 9th, 2018

Article source: Ça Arquitectura

The building Jacinto Chiclana offers collective housing on a northwest corner property in Moreno, suburb of Buenos Aires. The building’s namesake, a character from the BorgesPiazzola tango, and the tango itself are lionized throughout the building and reflected in its design and construction.

The L shape of the building creates a central patio, with expansive, semienclosed central patio. The building is enveloped by a second concrete skin that is both structural and definitive of the buildings loggia. This creates intermediate spaces around the lateral facades and this fifth facade that incorporate the exterior in the interior space and the interior in the exterior. From an environmental perspective, this intermediate space serves as an initial barrier that reduces heat loss during the winter and heat gain during the summer.

House Three in Germany by Gellink + Schwämmlein Architekten

Friday, September 7th, 2018

Article source: Gellink + Schwämmlein Architekten

The location of House Three is characterised by an unobstructed view of the Swabian Alps, which includes a medieval monastery located in the centre of the village. It was desired by the owners to have the monastery in direct sight from the house. The fulfilment of this wish was complicated by a tight development plan and a narrow construction window. Nevertheless, in satisfying the needs of the brief a structural geometry was developed that allowed for a complete view of the monastery – the balcony area on the south side of the house was extruded out of the building envelope, allowing for the panoramic view over the village and the surrounding landscape.
