N-House in Fukuoka, Japan by Uchida Takahisa Architect Design Office

Cantilevered closets

The site is located on the soft ground near the lower basin of the big river. The client of this house decided to build one-storied house because the site area is wide enough, but it was necessary to reduce the foundation area because of the construction budget. So I arranged closets in the outer periphery, and attached them by the cantilevering structure.

Martínez House in Maipo, Chile by Tidy Architects

Sunday, October 23rd, 2016

Article source: Tidy Architects 

This is a weekend house in Aculeo Lagoon, mandated by a young couple. The site is located on a hillside that contemplates the lagoon from afar.

The house, in consequence, acts as a landscape observation post and a faraway lookout through two unique picture windows that fork in different paths and heights, to capture two distinct views.

De Gouverneur in Rotterdam, The Netherlands by Architectuur MAKEN

Friday, October 21st, 2016

Article source: Architectuur MAKEN

Though Rotterdam – with its high-rise and modern developments – feels like a pretty dense city, there are still empty plots in the city center. These are the result of the ambitious post-war plans in between old houses. The gaps in between old and new are often left open, which are potential locations for small buildings. The local-government stimulates initiatives for such small scale projects. We started to bike around the city to find a plot in our favorite neighborhood and we took a close look to possible locations and the regulations that comply. About 2 years ago [sept 2014] we laid eyes on this very location, and we contacted the local-government with an email questioning: can we build here? Followed by a reply: Yes, please! The contractor started building in March 2016 and finished in July 2016.

Grant Place in Queensland, Australia by Absolut Custom Glass Systems

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

Article source: Absolut Custom Glass Systems 

The brief from the client was to create a fresh, resort style family home.

Due to the warm climate, the extraordinary amount of sunny days on the Gold Coast and the property’s location on the regions Riviera it was important to spread as much of the living area to outside as possible. At the same time, it was just as important to blend the outdoor and the internal area together with the extensive use of toughened clear glass. Glass pool fencing helps to create a true resort style residence whilst not compromising on the intimacy that the owner should feel with their home. The house looks out over the waterway system that attracts so many people to the area, making it possible to park your car out the front of the house and have your boat docked in the backyard. The river system is a network of waterways that link the entire region together and, for most small boats, allows access to the ocean.

RØLDAL CABIN in Norway by REIULF RAMSTAD ARKITEKTER

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

Article source: REIULF RAMSTAD ARKITEKTER

The Røldal family vacation home is recognisable for its compact, defined and geometric shape. The objective of preserving as much of the surrounding landscape possible as a high priority resulted in the design of two volumes: a small cabin and an annex, that keep a dialogue with the encompassing nature. Dividing the structures also answers to the need of a high flexibility and to accommodate dierent family compositions in separate spaces. The articulated section is adapted to the steep terrain and is assigned to create interconnected floors and capture the views of both the forest and the hillside.

Captain’s House in Shohola, Pennsylvania by Bromley Caldari Architects PC

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

Article source: Bromley Caldari Architects PC 

The client, a retired Army captain, asked us to design an urban loft on a steep, wooded, rocky site overlooking the Delaware River in rural Shohola, Pennsylvania.  The house is an escape from New York City and a laboratory for ideas – a place to read and work, pace and think.  A place where indoors and outdoors blur.

The design is made of two intersecting rectangular volumes.

Hip & Gable in Australia by Architecture Architecture

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

Article source: Architecture Architecture 

Once was a time when a roof was a roof. Mostly it just sat up there to keep the rain off, but more importantly, it looked like a roof. A roof would hold itself in such a way, with its jaunty gables, casual hips and firm ridges, to let the world know that this house is a house. A noble task indeed. Yet, for the most part, a roof would do precious little to enliven the warren of rooms below.

CONCORD HOUSE_I in Sydney, Australia by Studio Benicio

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

Article source: Studio Benicio

This low maintenance, contemporary four bedroom house located in Concord, Sydney, completed in May 2016, has been designed to showcase the owners’ love for concrete and to provide more space and greater amenity for their family of four.

The clients were after a new contemporary house that would make better use of their existing site than their tired, red brick cottage. The clients own and operate a formwork business, which in turn has garnered them a great love and appreciation for concrete and wanted their new house to feature this throughout.
