Klein Bottle House in Mornington Peninsula, Australia by McBride Charles Ryan

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

Article source: McBride Charles Ryan

The Klein bottle is a descriptive model of a surface developed by topological mathematicians. Klein bottle, mobius strips, boy surfaces, unique surfaces that while they may be distorted remain topologically the same. I.e. a donut will remain topologically a donut if you twist and distort it, it will only change topologically if it is cut.

The surfaces that mathematicians have developed hold intrigue for architects as they hold a promise of new spatial relationships and configurations. Technology (CAD) has played an important part in all this, it is now more possible to efficiently describe more complex shapes and spaces and communicate these to the build. Previously the more orthogonal means of communication – plans, sections and elevations naturally encourage buildings which are more easily described in these terms, i.e. boxes.

Divergence House in Bangkok, Thailand by FOUNDRY OF SPACE CO., LTD.

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

Article source: FOUNDRY OF SPACE CO., LTD.

Situated inside an existing lush garden in the middle of one of Bangkok’s expatriate areas, Divergence House emerges from the intentionof preserving as many existing trees as possible within the site. Therefore the question of this project is not so much about how to design a house being seen explicitly from outside, but rather about how to seamlessly converge the internal spaces with the natural setting in a way that it still captivates a sense of domestic atmosphere.

Palillos II House in Lima, Peru by Staff7

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

Article source: Staff7

The project is on the beach Palillos, south of Lima, Peru to 116 kilometers from the city.

The starting point was to achieve transparency, so as not to obstruct the sea view, and not just people who live there can see the beach but also the neighbors who are not in and walking back. This was achieved by placing the private spaces to the side, making a coated stone volume and the rooms are on the second level, public spaces like the living room and kitchen in most area so you can see through them with clear glass. To keep privacy between outside and inside the income level rises. Another important point is achieved with the design is the connection of the outer housing glasses to hide inside the walls and be completely open to the outside.

Tunquen House in Valparaíso Region by Nicolas Loi

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

Article source: Nicolas Loi

The house is locates in the beach area of Tunquén, central coast of Chile, in an almost flat site near the sea. From the ground level of the site, the views to the sea are limited, so the first design choice was to locate the most important areas of the house in the first level, from where the sea and the beach can be seen more easily.

Roll House in Milyang-si, Gyeongsangnam-do, Korea by Moon Hoon

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

Article source: Moon Hoon

A young married couple who were both teachers approached me with an amazing plot of land. It was long, like a sword, adjoined with a long street to its side. The proportion was dramatic and therefore something that added to the appeal of the project, and the shape of the site itself breathed a vital energy into the building.

TDA HOUSE in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, México by Cadaval & Sola-Morales

Saturday, June 21st, 2014

Article source: Cadaval & Sola-Morales 

Where are the limits of materials? Are they in their apparently implicit properties or in our capacity to expand them?

A fresh house for extreme weather that surpasses the standard limits of comfort of the city-dweller; a low-cost house with minimum maintenance; a house for any number of habitants, flexible in its uses and configuration; a house that can open up completely to the exterior or close in on itself. A house which recycles almost all the remnant materials used for its built; a beach house that can be built in a distant corner of the world.

Mixcoac House in Mexico City, Mexico by FRENTE arquitectura & PRODUCTORA

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

Article source: FRENTE arquitectura & PRODUCTORA 

The project consists in demolish an old house and built a new one with very tight budget, preserving only the street-front façade.

Because of the chaotic context of the lot, the main idea was to turn the house inward to a widespread space. To achieve this, the ground floor was divided lengthwise placing the construction on the left side, taking the fullest possible advantage of the depth of the lot for the garden.
