PL2 House in Punta Lago, Mérida, Yucatán, México by Seijo Peón Arquitectos y Asociados

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

Article source: Seijo Peón Arquitectos y Asociados

This house’s terrain has a singular geometry, also is located in front of a lake, which is found southwestward. The fact that the best potential views are generatedtowards such a complicated orientation for sunlight at this latitude, results in a volume that opens to the environment but is protected to the sun incidence, generating a volume and a very special personality.

ALDEA HOUSE in Mérida, Mexico by Seijo Peon Arquitectos & Asociados

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

Article source: Seijo Peon Arquitectos & Asociados

The site of the house is in front of a golf course. On our first visit to the site was remarkable the amount of native trees that were in the field. As a first request to our client we asked for a detailed topographic study of all the trees in the site. From the beginning we intended to respect all the trees. Once we had the study in our hands, we faced a notable challenge… the possibility of keep all the trees, at least all of the medium and large size, assumed significant complexity. After studying multiple alternatives with conventional layouts (U shape, L shape, in two or three volumes, etc…) we figured out that in all cases we would have to cut an important amount of trees.

Fall House in CA by FOUGERON ARCHITECTURE

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

Article source: FOUGERON ARCHITECTURE

This three-bedroom home, on Big Sur’s spectacular south coast, is anchored in the natural beauty and power of this California landscape. Our design strategy embeds the building within the land, creating a structure inseparable from its context. The site offers dramatic views: a 250-foot drop to the Pacific Ocean both along the bluff and the western exposure. Yet it demands a form more complex than a giant picture window.

WAIATARUA HOUSE in AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND by Monk Mackenzie

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

Article source: Monk Mackenzie

The brief was for a new house on a challenging, steep site in a bush clad creek gully. One of the design challenges was to insert a bold intervention into a sensitive bush reserve whilst still maintaining a sense of modesty and poetic.

The house was designed for a couple in their mid-sixties who had always wanted a house surrounded by nature though not far removed from city life – a place or respite from the speed of city life.

WEIN HOUSE in Buenos Aires, Argentina by BESONIAS ALMEIDA arquitectos

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

Article source: BESONIAS ALMEIDA arquitectos

The place

Costa Esmeralda is a real estate development over the dunes on the coast, 390 km from Buenos Aires. This is a recent urban development with young acacias and pines forestation and some sectors of consolidated forest.

The lot to intervene is a high rise dune with the peculiarity of having in part aged woods and also a recent pine plantation, although undoubtedly its most prominent feature is the abruptness of its relief. Between the access road and the highest sector of the lot, located approx. in the plot center, there is a height difference of 12 m, so that in order to access to it is necessary to ascend a slope of more than 45 °.

House with Podocarpus in Osaka, Japan by MIFUNE DESIGN STUDIO

Saturday, June 7th, 2014

Article source: MIFUNE DESIGN STUDIO

There has been a symbolic podocarpus tree in the premises since the old days. It used to be a little away from the human space and was not seen from the room in a daily life. For this new construction due to deterioration, the tree was left where it was to strengthen the relation between human and the tree by building a new position and new traffic line. By creating minimum surrounding with new round fence for the tree, form and existence of the tree are maximized.
