The Gills in Ho Chi Minh City,Vietnam by CONGSINH ARCHITECT

Tuesday, March 31st, 2015

Article source: CONGSINH ARCHITECT

When I was little, I had been living at my grandparent’s house. That is a small house in a lush garden of fruit trees. The place that I slept was look out the garden; every morning, I was awakened by the gently sunbeams exposed through foliages; some night, you could hear sound of the rain fallen on leaves.

B+B House in São Paulo, Brazil by studio mk27

Tuesday, March 31st, 2015

Article source: studio mk27

The arrival at House B+B – the access to the social area – is through an architectural trajectory, via an open ramp, located on the eastern side of the construction. This space is protected by hollowed-out concrete elements to the side, which create surprising effects of light and end up functioning as protection from bad weather conditions.

Orchard House by Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects

Tuesday, March 31st, 2015

Article source: Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects

Inspired by both agricultural buildings in the area as well as a hundred years of the site as orchard and farm, the Orchard house utilizes simple forms, materials and minimal details to create a weekend retreat and reprieve for the owners and their family.
A meandering drive through meadow fields leads to a semi-public entry garden where cars are kept at a distance and the structure offers only glimpses of life within; visible through a louvered sunscreen wall and the strategically placed punctures that frame precise views of the gardens and distant farm fields.

“House in Archaggelos” in Nicosia, Cyprus by dias. Architecture Studio

Tuesday, March 31st, 2015

Article source: dias. Architecture Studio

The house is situated in a heavily built-up area, adjacent to the northwest boundary of a busy and hence noisy roadway. The initial purpose of the design was to cut off the continuous noise coming from the nearby roadway.

House at Mill Creek in Campo Tures (BZ), Italy by Pedevilla Architects

Saturday, March 28th, 2015

Article source: Pedevilla Architects

Situated near mill creek, on approximately 2828 feet above sea level, the single-family home presents itself with the elegance and serenity of a small mansion. In an apparently self-confident manner the white monolith rises from the site, whilst the building design corresponds to the insistence of the client for a small but prestigious residence. The volumetric and monolithic basic principle was emphasised by the exclusive usage of the white exterior rendering, of which the general raw materials are a compound of local sands, chalk and white-cement. Main focus lies therefore on the exterior’s elementary colour, nuances and slight divergences were solely achieved by aggregates to the plaster. In detail the facades surface was moulded rather roughly, a fine characteristic which was achieved by out-sluicing with the aid of wet sponges. Sensitisation is in the eye of the beholder. Since only by the presence of light and shadow, which is performing its everyday play on the coarse-grained surfaces, the building can utterly unfold its exemplary visual dynamic. The rising silhouette of the roof gives a slight impression of the upward striving space sequence on the inside. Square shaped window openings in different sizes are referring every now and then to significant spots in the surrounding alpine landscape. The vertical facade descends sheer homogenous into the deep and slightly slanting embrasures of the window openings or even into the rooftop. All windowsills and the canopy, which were conducted in exposed concrete, but also the handcrafted roof tiles, were made from the same compound as the plaster and provide its direct context.

Copper House in Sibiu, Romania by Radu Teaca

Saturday, March 28th, 2015

Article source: Radu Teaca

An important aspect was to achive a harmonious integration of the building on its own site. Sibiu is an old city with a well-defined center of medieval buildings, dating from the Renaissance and Baroque period. Therefore, the double pitched roof, the proportions of windows and the spaces between them were an attempt to adjust to existing archetypes. All these elements add a “gothic” spirit to the building, ensuring a better integration on the site.

The House with Coloured Lights in Timișoara, Romania by Andreescu & Gaivoronschi

Saturday, March 28th, 2015

Article source: Andreescu & Gaivoronschi 

Located on a lot with a pronounced depth, in a residential area in the South of Timisoara, the house adheres to the street front, modestly following the example of the nearby buildings. The façade lines are simple and clear, leaving room for a rich inner life, connected to the natural elements and enlivened by coloured lights.

Truly Open Eichler Home in Palo Alto, CA by Klopf Architecture

Friday, March 27th, 2015

Article source: Klopf Architecture

Klopf ArchitectureArterra Landscape Architects and Flegel’s Construction recently completed a beautiful and insightful remodel of a classic Eichler home that I think would be a perfect fit.

I know that this remodel of an iconic mid-century home would be a wonderful renovation feature, because the design team so sensitively addressed the needs of the homeowners and expanded on the original intent of the home.

Casa SG in Catania, Italy by Tuttiarchitetti

Article source: Tuttiarchitetti

THE PROJECT

A building at the ground floor 5 meters wide and 20 long with generous walls of lava stone stands on a shaped core of lava, residue of buildings massive ’70s; only two openings diagonal, north-east towards the gardens of the district, south-west to a glimpse of the city. A prism wooden “hut ” is placed on the lava fragment of the house, rotated 6 degrees and cut on the volume below, carved by two terraces on the diagonal gashes: a gem set between the heroic rears of tall buildings.
