Stirling House in Sydney, Australia by Mac-Interactive Architects

Thursday, December 18th, 2014

Article source: Mac-Interactive Architects

A new-build house replacing two very narrow 2-storey weather-board cottages on the same lot but in a very derelict stateAfter much discussion with Heritage it was felt that it would not be possible to restore them to anything other than museum status as they could not be brought up to current BCA standards. It was also felt that they were not of that much interest and very little original fabric existed. A fairly unique opportunity presented itself to insert a contemporary building into a heritage conservation area – allowing for a future reading of this particular period of Sydney’s development.

House in Nichinan, Japan by TAKESHI ISHIODORI ARCHITECTURE

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

Article source: TAKESHI ISHIODORI ARCHITECTURE

A wooden house of the box type built in Nichinan-shi, Miyazaki.
Control of its eyes was a problem because there was an unmanned railroad station on the south side.
A living room was established in the 2nd floor and the eyes from a home in the station were exchanged.
Though the exterior material was simple as urethane painting finishing in the material as \”wrap siding\” which came into fashion before, I aimed at the symbolic outward appearance from location as the house built in front of the station.

Compact Karst House in Vrhovlje, Slovenija by dekleva gregorič arhitekti

Saturday, December 13th, 2014

Article source: dekleva gregorič arhitekti

The region of Karst was once covered with Oak trees that Venetians have extensively used for building up the City on water. They have left the wind to peel off earth revealing limestone grounds. In this landscape the tradition of small, compact, stony and almost windowless houses developed and remained until today.

Nagasawa Dental Clinic in Tokyo, Japan by Kunihiko Matsuba (TYRANT Co.,Ltd.)

Saturday, December 13th, 2014

Article source: Kunihiko Matsuba (TYRANT Co.,Ltd.)

The buildings look like a set of building blocks piled up to the brink of collapsing, but they do not fall down even though it seems like they could at any moment.

They consist of a dental clinic and a house, which were built in a residential area in a suburb of Hachioji—a city located in the western part of Tokyo. The building site was previously a field, and we planned to construct a dental clinic,a house, a garage for two cars, and a parking lot for seven patients’ cars at the site, which was spacious enough to accommodate all these structures and provide a comfortable working and living environment.
