Air Force Villages by Perkins Eastman

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

Article source: Perkins Eastman

A home to call one’s own – a private bedroom and bath, ample shared living space, and a front door where family and friends can be greeted. These are the principles that guided Air Force Villages in the search for their model of culture change and initiated a repositioning of its two self-contained campuses—one campus offering a more urban lifestyle and the other a more rural one. Their vision called for a strong physical connection between each home that would allow for efficient staff and service delivery as well as building a stronger sense of community.

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

Article source: Arhitektura d.o.o.

The owner is a successful Slovenian businessman who spends some of his spare time in the countryside. The property is situated on the edge of a small village on top of a hill, and consists of farm land, forest, residential building, barn house, apiary and wooden pavilion used as a tool shack. The client decided to replace the broken-down barn house with a new, multi-functional building, a sort of “modern Slovenian hayrack”. The building is intended for dispensing honey, sorting, handling and drying fruit, storage of crops and tools, while the spacious ground floor is intended as a meeting place to host partners from abroad and celebrate family events.

Casa OVal in Jalisco, México by Elías Rizo Arquitectos

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Article source: Elías Rizo Arquitectos

The commission for casa Oval came from a young family with clearly defined needs and aspirations. This project presented a challenge that has become increasingly prevalent among Mexican architects: to build a house in a cloistered residential community that often imposes arbitrary, traditionalist aesthetic restrictions on all construction. Privacy and space efficiency were the two driving concerns for the project. The house envelope needed to afford sufficient visual privacy from the street outside, while also providing enough porosity to allow generous amounts of natural light into the house.
