Article source: Smerin Architects

In an area of ancient woodland bordering Ashdown Forest in East Sussex the new build house for a private client is set into a hillside overlooking a stream and the Wealden farmland beyond. Arranged over three levels the main living spaces, accessed via a folded steel plate bridge, occupy the middle floor and lead out to a generous verandah hung from and sheltered by the overhanging roof. Solid oak stairs machined from timber from the woods and cantilevered from the supporting concrete walls lead either up to the bedroom floor or down to a strip of utility spaces and through to a swimming pool room whose sliding glass wall opens up to the adjoining covered terrace and surrounding meadow.

Batin House in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Estudio Galera

Article source: Estudio Galera

An almost-level corner lot, within a pine forest in the north of Pinamar.  A vacation home to be rented to different users. Thus, a program of flexible needs. The house was projected around three conditions: to be lifted from the natural level terrain in order not to modify its original contours, to occupy the biggest amount of frontage length at Fragata la Victoria Street in order to increase the apparent size of the house, as well as closing off the views from the street into the heart of the site (preventing the private areas from being exposed to the street) and to reduce the costs of future maintenance.

Jack’s House in Melbourne, Australia by FMD Architects

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014

Article source: FMD Architects

The new extension offers a dialogue between two buildings of different eras. The existing Victorian residence at the street front and the industrial saw-tooth warehouse on the rear boundary seem disconnected in style and function. The extension negotiates between the two buildings, stretching and tapering toward the saw-tooth brick wall, while internally opening up from the double loaded Victorian corridor to the open glazed space, with the brick wall on the boundary as a feature backdrop.
