SINGLE FAMILY HOUSE Habrovice in Ústí nad Labem, Czech Republic by 3+1 architekti

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

Article source: 3+1 architekti

Agricultural village spread around a municipal road. Original strong and confident establishment as well as neighboring generous farm houses are gone. Nearby natural swimming pool (widely used not long time ago) has been devastated (also due to lack of interest of local authorities). That is an unsettling image of the contemporary outside. Uncertainty, treading water… Now what?

House in Ohno, Japan by Airhouse Design Office

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

Article source: Airhouse Design Office

A piece of land in a Japanese persimmon (kaki) orchard was offered as the project area for a residential house. As the client wanted wide open spaces with high ceilings, a structure composed of a large roof set on top of seven thick columns was used. To secure copious glass windows, private areas are located inside the columns while intervals between columns are designated as living, dining and kitchen spaces. With this composition, only the sky and the kaki orchard are visible from the inside, giving the area an open feeling while the kaki trees provide a sense of privacy from the outside world, all of which makes for a relaxed atmosphere in the interior areas. As the landscape transforms with the changing of the kaki seasons, a generous living space is produced in the house nestled among the kaki trees.

L’ÉCRAN (THE SCREEN) in Québec, Canada by Alain Carle

Sunday, September 21st, 2014

Article source: Alain Carle

The contextual constraint of this project, located on a lakeshore, enabled us to pursue the exploration of the possibilities of work geared to perceptual considerations. Narrow in depth, the site presented several setback constraints (next to a lake, stream, street, etc.). The buildable area was therefore somewhat narrow and irregular, which nonetheless offered the opportunity to design a project outside the typical precepts of “stylish” residences. The difficulty with respect to layout also facilitated discussions with the owners during the presentation of the concept, because there could be no question here of an idealized form. On the contrary, the site imposed a non-premeditated conceptual approach, anchored in the possible rather than what was there.

CASA SEA OF LIGHT in Paracas, Peru by Oscar Gonzalez Moix

Article source: Oscar Gonzalez Moix

The premise in the development of this project was always keep the visual into the bay and keep the horizon present in every area of the house. We should place the functions so the spaces will connect visually, the transparency should be the primary axis of the first floor.

Casa C in Milan, Italy by Francesco Librizzi Studio

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

Article source: Francesco Librizzi Studio

A very small apartment within a very “Milanese” building dated 1900. Two rooms plus a bath room, characterized by a narrow footprint compared to the quite high ceiling. Windows, doors, and above all the floor tiles, had finishes and materials survived to another century: something precious to save as a resource for the new inhabitants of this space.
