“House in Archaggelos” in Nicosia, Cyprus by dias. Architecture Studio

Tuesday, March 31st, 2015

Article source: dias. Architecture Studio

The house is situated in a heavily built-up area, adjacent to the northwest boundary of a busy and hence noisy roadway. The initial purpose of the design was to cut off the continuous noise coming from the nearby roadway.

House at Mill Creek in Campo Tures (BZ), Italy by Pedevilla Architects

Saturday, March 28th, 2015

Article source: Pedevilla Architects

Situated near mill creek, on approximately 2828 feet above sea level, the single-family home presents itself with the elegance and serenity of a small mansion. In an apparently self-confident manner the white monolith rises from the site, whilst the building design corresponds to the insistence of the client for a small but prestigious residence. The volumetric and monolithic basic principle was emphasised by the exclusive usage of the white exterior rendering, of which the general raw materials are a compound of local sands, chalk and white-cement. Main focus lies therefore on the exterior’s elementary colour, nuances and slight divergences were solely achieved by aggregates to the plaster. In detail the facades surface was moulded rather roughly, a fine characteristic which was achieved by out-sluicing with the aid of wet sponges. Sensitisation is in the eye of the beholder. Since only by the presence of light and shadow, which is performing its everyday play on the coarse-grained surfaces, the building can utterly unfold its exemplary visual dynamic. The rising silhouette of the roof gives a slight impression of the upward striving space sequence on the inside. Square shaped window openings in different sizes are referring every now and then to significant spots in the surrounding alpine landscape. The vertical facade descends sheer homogenous into the deep and slightly slanting embrasures of the window openings or even into the rooftop. All windowsills and the canopy, which were conducted in exposed concrete, but also the handcrafted roof tiles, were made from the same compound as the plaster and provide its direct context.

Copper House in Sibiu, Romania by Radu Teaca

Saturday, March 28th, 2015

Article source: Radu Teaca

An important aspect was to achive a harmonious integration of the building on its own site. Sibiu is an old city with a well-defined center of medieval buildings, dating from the Renaissance and Baroque period. Therefore, the double pitched roof, the proportions of windows and the spaces between them were an attempt to adjust to existing archetypes. All these elements add a “gothic” spirit to the building, ensuring a better integration on the site.

The House with Coloured Lights in Timișoara, Romania by Andreescu & Gaivoronschi

Saturday, March 28th, 2015

Article source: Andreescu & Gaivoronschi 

Located on a lot with a pronounced depth, in a residential area in the South of Timisoara, the house adheres to the street front, modestly following the example of the nearby buildings. The façade lines are simple and clear, leaving room for a rich inner life, connected to the natural elements and enlivened by coloured lights.

Truly Open Eichler Home in Palo Alto, CA by Klopf Architecture

Friday, March 27th, 2015

Article source: Klopf Architecture

Klopf ArchitectureArterra Landscape Architects and Flegel’s Construction recently completed a beautiful and insightful remodel of a classic Eichler home that I think would be a perfect fit.

I know that this remodel of an iconic mid-century home would be a wonderful renovation feature, because the design team so sensitively addressed the needs of the homeowners and expanded on the original intent of the home.

Casa SG in Catania, Italy by Tuttiarchitetti

Friday, March 27th, 2015

Article source: Tuttiarchitetti

THE PROJECT

A building at the ground floor 5 meters wide and 20 long with generous walls of lava stone stands on a shaped core of lava, residue of buildings massive ’70s; only two openings diagonal, north-east towards the gardens of the district, south-west to a glimpse of the city. A prism wooden “hut ” is placed on the lava fragment of the house, rotated 6 degrees and cut on the volume below, carved by two terraces on the diagonal gashes: a gem set between the heroic rears of tall buildings.

Peekaboo House in Islington, London by Lipton Plant Architects

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

Article source: Lipton Plant Architects

Peekaboo House is located near Newington Green in N1, Islington and benefits from the side access and parking space where our site was identified. The clients were current residents of the property and had already completed extensive refurbishment works in addition to the modern glazed extension at Lower Ground floor completed by the previous owner. Our brief was to create an effective separate single bed dwelling for a nanny with the impending arrival of their first child. Although we were able to utilise some of the side access to form the new addition the client was insistent upon retaining the parking space and as much of the rear patio as possible. Furthermore it was important to retain an access for the client from front to back via the side access to ensure security of the overall property was in their control.

House in Nogyang, South Korea by studio_GAON

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

Article source: studio_GAON

‘House in Nogyang‘ is facing the boundary of the green belt, which boundary that the city can’t expand anymore. It is close to downtown but quiet, near to an apartment complex, elementary school, and Nogyang station.

This house is for three generations: three children, a couple, and their old mother. Each of them wanted their own room, and also has enough room for their basic living space, but the site area was 147㎡, which was pretty small. Besides, they had money for the building area could be only 147㎡, while some part of the land was scheduled to be transferred to a planned road. We just have had to find a way while building the house just to fit in the land.
