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.

Lark Residence in Seattle, Washington by Stephenson Design Collective

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

Article source: Stephenson Design Collective

A small home in the residential neighborhood of Ballard in Seattle, WA was carefully dismantled by hand to save and salvage every piece of available material in order to create the Lark House. The existing home contained a full height basement that was inspected and reused as the foundation of the new home in order to take advantage of existing conditions and reuse the available earthwork and concrete already in place. The small footprint allowed for less of a typical living space so the design incorporated a covered patio off of the living room. Separated only by a folding window wall, this doubled the interior space when opened.  Keeping the smaller existing footprint also allowed for more yard play space for the kids and garden space for the entire family. Floating above the concrete patio is the aluminum-clad form containing the main bedroom and bath. Skylights brighten the bathroom with natural light, while providing privacy from the neighboring homes. Connecting the living level with the bedrooms above is an open stairwell surrounded by glass. To avoid excessive sun exposure, the windows are clad with a cedar wall screen that allows filtered light and view in and out of the home.  Concrete floors and durable materials are used throughout for the active family to enjoy their time together rather than working to constantly maintain the building. The rooftop deck replaces the displaced footprint of the home while garden planters utilize the rainwater.
