Les Jumelles in Lac Brome, Canada by Atelier Pierre Thibault

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015

Article source: Atelier Pierre Thibault

This project was intended for a flat, sparsely wooded site. Completely in stone, the original house dated from the early 19th century. Its proportions were balanced but the extension made in the mid-20th century was a bit chaotic.

Homeair in Sanzeno, Italy by MIRKO FRANZOSO ARCHITETTO

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015

Article source: MIRKO FRANZOSO ARCHITETTO

Living deep in nature, in complete harmony with the elements of the area and respecting the environment where we spend our time for meditation are the fundamental principles that brought to the realization of this house among trees. The rooms forming this house among trees are first of all places where to refuge yourself from nature, but at the same time where to rest and enjoy it fully.

House in Shfela, Israel by Dan and Hila Israelevitz Architects

Sunday, September 20th, 2015

Article source: Dan and Hila Israelevitz Architects

Two level house, ground floor and basement. The building’s concept is an integration with the natural landscape in the area and in the plot, while creating a dramatic entrance façade that is still restrained and mysterious toward the street. Instead of highlighting the large and regular windows, and the doors, the idea was to hint at the building by creating two concrete beams with a line of trees between them.

bm Modular One in Washington, D.C. by Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

Sunday, September 20th, 2015

Article source: Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

A successful builder / developer with a history of constructing modular houses purchased a lot in a desirable neighborhood near Washington, D.C. with the intention of building a spec house.  When a potential buyer expressed interest in the lot, the developer proposed a modular house as a solution to a tight budget and time constraints.  However, the craftsman and colonial style modular houses typically built by the developer did not appeal to the potential client, who desired a light-filled, modern house.

Iksan-Si T-House in South Korea by KDDH architects(Kim, Dong-hee)

Friday, September 18th, 2015

Article source:  KDDH architects(Kim, Dong-hee)

Iksan T House is a ‘T’ shaped house in front and back elevation. The house is constructed in light weight wood structures in ‘T’ shaped façade with floating upper mass. Constructing this type of structure with light weight wood structure was possible with 30cm diameter glulam. They were able to construct floating upper mass with large exterior space on the ground level through glulam with higher vertical strength compare to concrete. Two stories of interior space is divided into public space on the 1st floor and private space on 2nd floor and the user can feel the large space on the first floor. When they open the door, they can experience expanded space directly connected to the exterior.

House and studio in Orlandia, Brazil by Spbr arquitetos

Friday, September 18th, 2015

Article source: Spbr arquitetos

A proper balance as a goal

Two activities: live and work. Its two corresponding spaces, house and studio, have been shaped historically, as two quite clear architectonic typologies.

Our first goal to this project was to combine both in a single small building, firstly keeping their programmatic independence and secondly achieving a proper balance in the whole [not a house with a studio appended, neither a studio with an added house].

It means, we would like to integrate both programs in such a way that both could live together with no conflicts. The studio should not be disturbed when the house is empty. In the same way, the house should not be degraded by an uninhabited studio.
