The Future of Prefabricated Wooden Homes by marc benjamin drewes ARCHITEKTUREN

Friday, October 24th, 2014

Article source: marc benjamin drewes ARCHITEKTUREN

In our opinion the future of prefabricated wooden houses is a simple but well reasoned solid construction without any glue or synthetic elements. This leads not only to real sustainability, but creates a pleasant indoor climate and a friendly atmosphere.
The lightness of wood and the possibilities of prefabricating large-size elements qualifies wooden houses to densify an urban landscape. A city as Berlin has a huge amount of flat roofs that can carry light wooden constructions. People can live in individual houses with spectacular views in the middle of the city.

Re-Use in Netherlands by Global Architects

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

Article source: Global Architects

The renovation of the top floor of this Dutch mansion was a challenging one since the goal was to restore the traditional function of the rooms in an efficient and contemporary way without compromising the overall spatial experience. The main section of the apartment consists of a large space that contains the living room and the dining room. Two minimalist style built-in closets are centrally positioned alongside both walls and provide the total amount of requested storage space, including a hidden fridge, storage for the laundry machine and a bookcase. A clear division in functionality and the recovery of the proportions of the rooms have been accomplished without diminishing the sensation of the abundant presence of space. Daylight penetrates from both sides the complete depth of the interior and the ceiling hovers unhindered over the entire space.

House of Architects in Klecinski Park, Poland by ArC2 Fabryka Projekt

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

Article source: ArC2 Fabryka Projekt

A simple own house of the architects on a narrow plot in the park. A cuboid with extended glass drawers allowing a view on the greenery from any location.  The elevation is covered with homogenous material: Tecu Patina copper sheeting. A simple functional division into three zones: the utility, the day and the night ones. The house is cut through with a one-flight staircase whose walls are made of in situ concrete in a formwork with a stencil that filtrates horizontally the sun’s rays. The functional-communications layout enables intuitive moving around and the intimacy of the zones in a totally glazed house in spite of the uncomfortable three-storey structure. A house of hard-working architects. That is why the trees grow even through the terrace; there is no time for the garden and digging around in the ground. The trees, wind, sun and the cries of birds permeate the interior and become its important element. The fully glazed elevations part to let the wind play with white Tyvek curtains. Solar thermal collectors heat the water. Husky watches surroundings from the extended balcony-platform. One Husky, four huskies are reflected in the glass…
