Freiluft Barn Conversion in Rüegsauschachen, Switzerland by Freiluft

Friday, July 21st, 2017

Article source: Freiluft

How on earth does one come up with the idea of pouring a huge amount of concrete into an Emmental farmhouse? Certainly, one could find several practical reasons (statics, thermal storage mass or the like…). For us, the house needed something rough and immediate, something that could build up its own world in the former barn and hayloft. A concrete object now cuts through all three floors and supports the old roof. In addition to its structural qualities, it holds all the bathrooms and kitchen accommodations, as well as cabinets and storage space. Large windows open up the view into the impressive attic.

The House by the Trees in Ahmedabad, India by MODO Designs

Friday, July 21st, 2017

Article source: MODO Designs

The ‘House by the Trees’ is a gathering and retreat place for a Gujarati family on the outskirts of Ahmedabad set amidst the existing neem, chikoo and amla trees. The brief given was to have a spacious and open place yet addressing security concerns.

Our primary concern was to weave the house layout with the existing trees, resulting into some trees within the house courts and some trees along its edge and thus random location of existing trees defined the extents of the house.

La Diana in Barcelona, Spain by RÄS STUDIO

Friday, July 21st, 2017

Article source: RÄS STUDIO 

La Diana is the exercise of linking visually, volumetrically and functionally two independent and alienated entities: a commercial space on the ground floor and an apartment on the first floor. The architectural strategy was based on drilling the existing slab to create a large enough opening that would activate the relationship in section between the two floors, and in which the stairs are placed.

Backyard House in Queensland, Australia by Joe Adsett Architects

Friday, July 21st, 2017

Article source: Joe Adsett Architects 

The ‘Great Australian Dream’ of owning a quarter acre block with a new house has become a distant memory in inner-city Brisbane, as parcels of land are shaved down repeatedly in a bid to densify the urban centre. Nestled within the urban streets of Teneriffe, a colonial Queenslander presented a charming frontage that concealed the potential for the Architect to utilise the vacant 300m2 backyard to design and build a new family home. The ‘Backyard House’ has been an opportunity to set a precedent for suburban infill development as an alternative to the prevailing trend of building apartments near railway and bus stations.

Residence 100% in São Paulo, Brazil by Rogerio Gama Arquitetura

Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

Article source: Rogerio Gama Arquitetura

I called this project 100% Residency, because all the land, even in its green area, it has a function.
This, was elaborated as a collaboration for a student of mine, of the course of Civil Engineering, in college that I taught. Therefore, I elaborated in metallic structure, for it to be already getting accustomed and having an already real project, a detail of this bevelled structure, so it already improves its knowledge. And the apparent concrete in the rest.

Article source: CplusC Architectural Workshop

Working within the bones of a solid, well-constructed water front home built in the ‘60s on Sydney’s Parramatta River, the adaptive reuse of this multi-level dwelling involved removing the entirety of the internal workings of the existing structure, re-invigorating the central circulation core, promoting light and cross ventilation while embracing the waterfront outlook to the North West.

HOUSE IN THE DUNE in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Luciano Kruk

Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

Article source: Luciano Kruk

The House in the Dune is located in The Coast Disctrict, in a seaside neighborhood 13 km north of the city of Pinamar and four hours away from Buenos Aires.

Lying on a curved cul-de-sac, the site is a trapezoid with its widest side at the back. Originally, even though it lacked tree vegetation (particularly pines, which are typical in The Coast District), the land seemed impenetrable, completely covered as it was with acacias.
