Casas Neptuno in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Estudio Galera Arquitectura

Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

Article source: Estudio Galera Arquitectura

In a small flat lot and without vegetation, four similar rental homes have been designed. A common path connects the street with the entrance to each house and concrete benches are placed creating a common space, a place for relaxation. To the west, the barbecue area and decks are located. These houses provide maximum natural light due to the use of floor to ceiling openings and as a result, the reflection of light can reach every corner of the houses. Cross ventilation to cool the rooms minimizes the use of air conditioners.

East London-based MOCT Studio have re-planned and extended a suburban London semi-detached to provide a faceted roof social space for a large family.

The family of six had become increasingly cramped in the existing semi-detached, despite the previous addition of two small dormers, with shared children’s bedrooms, a single bathroom and fragmented living spaces that meant the family were rarely all in the same room.

Doc – Temporary Floating House in Romania, Balkans by Lime Studio

Sunday, July 16th, 2017

Article source: Lime Studio

DOC intertwines the typology of a compact house – having a low environmental impact – with the specificity of a unique location: distributary channel Borcea . The location and the desire of a new type of dwelling – a floating, multifunctional, mobile house – imposed special and complex constructive conditions. The high water level variations of the river due to seasonal changes as well as budget conditioning have resulted in constructing a trailer like platform that can be relocated. The house is responding to site changes and changes with it. Mobility as the main feature of the construction dictated the simplicity of the designed space. Compact and with a simple, rectangular plan, the space gets a spectacular feel through the manner it integrates with the location, complimenting it. Amazing images are brought in everyday use through wide windows and patio. Although very open, the pontoon provides visual intimacy from the city through its positioning. Its multifunctionality of temporary housing and meeting point for water sports lovers opens up new perspectives and exploration angles for a forgotten and undiscovered area – the Danube river and the Calarasi area. The building process began taking into consideration the context, location and community by harnessing an existing and abandoned pontoon that has been adapted to current needs.
