Section in Hoogstraten, Belgium by Burobill

Wednesday, May 6th, 2015

Article source: Burobill

Architecture and music share a mathematical principle : the golden section.This principle is used to arrange and order the existing house as a spine running through it.The music room was designed and constructed from scratch using the golden section as a tool to design the facades, the plan, the height of the ceiling, the section of the beams etcetera…All elements of the music chamber are generated by the same principle.

The house locates at a peaceful uncrowded neighborhoods in Binh Chanh Distinct, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. After 10 years working and saving, the couples bought a 7m x 16m ground. They wanted to have a comfortable house for kids: 3 rooms for family members, 1 room for grandparents’ visit, garage, and functionalities (working room, altar, etc.). However, urban planning requires to leave 2.5m front and 2m behind the house. This requirement makes the build able area a little small in the comparison with expectation of investors. The given solution is to build interleaving spaces, which have different foolproof, placed around a central vertical space. This solution creates voids and connections between rooms.

Before & After – An Oakland House Transformation in California by Baran Studio Architecture

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

Article source: Baran Studio Architecture

The existing Spanish Style house had been modified adhoc (not to mention illegally) over the years with little attention to the net effect. As with many of the transformations we design, we took the existing conditions and capitalized on the best features of the house. These were the big, open back yard, the opportunity to connect the house to the outdoors, and the architectural interest of the split level. We also took queues from the nearby industrial and warehouse elements, and fused them with an interpretation of the neighborhood’s residential qualities. The hybrid result is simultaneously related to the context, and an architecture of its own.
