Myrto House by Vakis Associates

Thursday, April 9th, 2015

Article source: Vakis Associates

This is an exercise to make this two storey building appear as a single storey by placing the first floor on top of a ground floor stone plinth on the street side, hiding all ground floor activities. At the same time extensive shaded glazing on the garden and pool side is creating a horizontal void directly connecting and unifying the indoors with the outdoors. The combination of the heavy stone base and the continuous glazing makes the curved concrete structure on the first floor appear to be floating. The elevated site has unobstructed views to the Pentedaktylos mountains during the day and the lights of Nicosia town at night. The open space between the guest bedroom and living room creates a sheltered outdoor sitting area with an open fire. The plan is linear and all rooms share the same stunning views.

Article source: Atelier d’Arquitectura J. A. Lopes da Costa

The house consists of two structures, perpendicular to each other, and a third one serving the swimming pool.

Due to its volume this house seems to have two floors, but it is, in fact, distributed almost exclusively in one. The structure of the living rooms, with a double height ceiling, which also houses the study and the gallery located on the first floor, grants it another volume dimension.

House Wago in Shizuoka, Japan by msd-office

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

Article source: msd-office

This residence stands in the suburbs of Hamamatsu, and was designed for a young couple with children. The building consists of a two stories high rectangular box with a meter deep balcony, which functions both as a semi-outdoor corridor connecting the rooms on the upper floor, and as a roof over the ground floor entrance porch and veranda. The 10m wide horizontal opening on the balcony wall made structurally free by use of cantilever, gives character to the outer appearance of the building. The building is situated on the northern side of an irregularly shaped land plot. In the double-height ceiling LDK, the large opening creates a sense of unity with the yard on the southern side, in addition to “borrowing” the forest on the south-western wide as part of the scenery. The open interior space was designed by extending dynamically both in the horizontal and the vertical direction.
