K15 in Düsseldorf, ‎Germany by Pier7 Architekten

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

Article source: Pier7 Architekten

Transformation – WHEN REBUILDING BECOMES RETHINKING.

Thinking and planning provocatively.

Building into the existing context of a hillside was a challenge, which Pier7 confronted with simplicity and clarity. Guiding the light through the building and meticulously considering every detail was of utmost importance. The brief called for a one storey house towards the street, typical for this residential area in Düsseldorf. By cleverly offsetting the facade a scale floor is inserted, thus creating the illusion of a one storey building. As the building evolves towards the garden, the volumes are carved into the Hillside and the house becomes two and three storeys tall. The facade opens up towards a panoramic green landscape and simultaneously offers privacy. This allows for a private pool and a two level terrace. The ground level opens up towards the garden thus becoming one with nature. In the evening an ambient illumination adds a special touch to the facade and trees.

Adams Fleming House in Toronto, Canada by LGA Architectural Partners

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

Article source: LGA Architectural Partners

On a street of historic, working-class cottages in Toronto’s west end, adjacent to a railway line and a supermarket parking lot, a vacant auto-body shop may have seemed like an unlikely impetus for a residence with a domestic character. The clients—Debbie Adams, a graphic designer, and Peter Fleming, a furniture designer/craftsman—had a limited budget but considerable talent and resources. Working with Levitt Goodman Architects, the project became a laboratory for artistic collaboration and experimentation. Over several years they have transformed the industrial site into an artful urban oasis.

PRIMERA in Gurgaon, India by R+D Studio

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

Article source: R+D Studio 

The architecture of the house explores a play of volumes, materials and stark play of light & shadow. The volume blocking is strong & rigid with a further accentuation through contrasting materials – the stunning corten steel with stark whites. Corten steel is used prominently on the façade with seamless joining techniques following a strict geometry. The monotony of white blocks is broken with sharp block patterns created through aluminum grooves.

This project is the renovation of a unit in a twenty-five year old apartment building for a married couple.

House Of Mirrors in Barcelona, Spain by nook architects

Sunday, October 9th, 2016

Article source: nook architects 

The projects we have done so far have had very centric locations within the city of Barcelona:  Ciutat Vella, Eixample, Gràcia, Poble Nou… This time, however, it was at the centre of it all. Located in Plaça Catalunya, the first thing we did was to look out from the generous balcony doors to the urban sights outside, from a very privileged location on one of the building’s top floors. It was then that we knew that the day zones were to be located towards these valuable openings to the city’s frenetic rhythm.

The CK House in Hanoi city, Vietnam by i.house Architecture and Construction

Friday, October 7th, 2016

Article source: i.house Architecture and Construction 

I met the home owner on a rainy afternoon. He introduced me to his house, which, though a bit old but was spacious, had three floors, a front yard and a backyard and was fully functional for the whole family of three generations living together. At first, I thought he only wanted to renovate the house and its living space. But I was wrong, the design task given by the home owner was very simple and concise that I had never heard before: “Let’s give me a blueprint so emotional that I can have enough courage to tear down this house.” It was from this abstract statement that our work started.

K22 House in Bangkok, Thailand by JUNSEKINO Architect and Design CO,.LTD.

Friday, October 7th, 2016

Article source: JUNSEKINO Architect and Design CO,.LTD.

K22 is a house of 3 siblings, each of them begins to be grown-up subsequently but they all have the same intention to live together with their parents and taking care of each other like they did previously. The house is located in the inner zone of Bangkok “Huay Kwang”, they all decided to live together in the familiar district better than settling down separately which would result in more costs for land and construction. The main concept of the house is to design sharing spaces for all family members while providing privacy for each one of them. It could be compared as a family’s apartment where each of them has their own living unit, and the common space that perfectly fits the needs and activities of people from two different generations. Consequently, the house promotes all members to spend their time and share their moments together as one big family.
