House # 1.130 in Madrid, Spain by estudio.entresitio

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

Article source: estudio.entresitio

This is a single-family house, but quite a large one, something over 5 hundred square meters, site is narrow and long and sloped towards south.

Two different schemes superimposed one on top the other; a longitudinal one, based on spatial forking, and the one underneath, based on a hand fingers like configuration. As a result, it is a fractured mass, ruled by the rhythm of the roof structure.

Hustadvika Tools in Norway by Rever & Drage Architects

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

Article source: Rever & Drage Architects

This small but multifunctional building was designed and constructed, both as an answer to the clients need for a wind-and-rain shelter at their outdoor summer house-piazza, and as a combined tool-shed and special-occasion-sleep-under-the-stars-facility. A complex program for a modest building, making way for double-functional elements and architectural ambiguity.

The site at the utmost north-western-coast of Norway, presented it with some harsh and always changing weather conditions including a daily spray of salt water.

Small Box House in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan by AKASAKA SHINICHIRO

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

Article source: AKASAKA SHINICHIRO

The residence is built on the western hillside of Mt. Moiwa, overlooking the city of Sapporo. Although, being the 5th largest city in Japan, the cumulative amount of snow cover in the winter season exceeds 6 meters.

From the casual lifestyle of the client and his wife, and also the request to have a part of the house turn into a cafe in the future, we aimed to create a space to be flexible to support various events, such as the new birth of a child or starting a new cafe, where various life-scenes exist with reasonable distances to each other inside a simple void, like a barn.

100 % Home in Wroclaw, Poland by Kabarowski Misiura Architekci

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

Article source: Kabarowski Misiura Architekci

A house from the 1920s was redeveloped and modernized. The interior layout was changed and elevations were unified. The result of these actions is a construction which is undoubtedly modern yet inextricably linked with the buildings of the past with the form of a traditional house.

House in Milan, New York by Rangr Studio with Charlet Design

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

Article source: Rangr Studio with Charlet Design 

After years of renting a weekend house in the area, our clients found land they loved and asked us to design a weekend and summer home. The clients were particularly fond of one of their previous rentals — a chicken coop turned into a small house — and that became a departure point for our design. Within a strict budget, the design took advantage of a steep slope in the hillside, using the foundation as a retaining wall on the high point of the hill and opening up the lower story with doors and windows. The house looks small and humble from the street side, with a mostly opaque wall creating privacy, but opens up to a deck and stone terrace, the facade punctured with windows looking to the Catskill Mountains.

CHAMELEON HOUSE in Czech Republic, Europe by Petr Hajek Architekti

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

Article source: Petr Hajek Architekti 

The house is located in the centre of a garden. Each single room is oriented to one of the  trees. The living room faces the apple tree, the master bedroom, the cherry tree, the bathroom faces the peach tree, the guest room, the silver spruce and the children’s room,  the walnut.  Each room has its unique view and atmosphere.  The building is resting like a lizard in a sun-lit meadow. The inspiration for the proposal of this house is in fact a chameleon. Eyes (windows) unrestrictedly observe the surroundings. The skin (facade), consisting of a semi-gloss coat, partly reflects the colours of the garden and the sky.

D house in Brittany, France by Lode Architecture

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

Article source: Lode Architecture

Beached on the estuary’s banks, where fresh waters meet rising tides, the D house cultivates contradictions. It can be either a shelter or a reception place, an intimate space or the place for partying. It is driven by opposite currents and its character varies depending on its occupants’ moods and natural cycles.

La maison-vague in Reims, France by Patrick Nadeau

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

Article source: Patrick Nadeau

The project context is based on experimentation, and initiated by the public housing council of Reims (HLM – l’Effort Rémois) – in a subdivision of 63 lots with heavy economic constraints.

La Maison-vague uses vegetation for its architectural and environmental qualities, particularly in terms of thermal insulation. A fully vegetated shell protects the interior from summer heat and winter cold. The basic form is to encapsulate within a single mat of vegetation that undulates and floats above the ground, at sitting height (the rim surrounding the wooden shelf is kind of a big bench). The traditional relationship between house and garden is changed, disturbed even, the project encompasses both in the same construction.

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

Article source: fuse-atelier 

The house is located on a residential block overlooking the Edogawa river in the city of Noda,Chiba. It is a scenic environment with views in the west that opens through a green park and a riverbed that expands beyond. The site is a relatively large section of a recently developed land lot, where the surrounding areas are still largely vacant. The client, a young couple in their thirties, wanted the expansive views of the Edogawa river, a terrace will-integrated with the living room, and a small cafe space on the second floor.
