CHAMELEON HOUSE in Czech Republic, Europe by Petr Hajek Architekti

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

Article source: Petr Hajek Architekti 

The house is located in the centre of a garden. Each single room is oriented to one of the  trees. The living room faces the apple tree, the master bedroom, the cherry tree, the bathroom faces the peach tree, the guest room, the silver spruce and the children’s room,  the walnut.  Each room has its unique view and atmosphere.  The building is resting like a lizard in a sun-lit meadow. The inspiration for the proposal of this house is in fact a chameleon. Eyes (windows) unrestrictedly observe the surroundings. The skin (facade), consisting of a semi-gloss coat, partly reflects the colours of the garden and the sky.

D house in Brittany, France by Lode Architecture

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

Article source: Lode Architecture

Beached on the estuary’s banks, where fresh waters meet rising tides, the D house cultivates contradictions. It can be either a shelter or a reception place, an intimate space or the place for partying. It is driven by opposite currents and its character varies depending on its occupants’ moods and natural cycles.

La maison-vague in Reims, France by Patrick Nadeau

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

Article source: Patrick Nadeau

The project context is based on experimentation, and initiated by the public housing council of Reims (HLM – l’Effort Rémois) – in a subdivision of 63 lots with heavy economic constraints.

La Maison-vague uses vegetation for its architectural and environmental qualities, particularly in terms of thermal insulation. A fully vegetated shell protects the interior from summer heat and winter cold. The basic form is to encapsulate within a single mat of vegetation that undulates and floats above the ground, at sitting height (the rim surrounding the wooden shelf is kind of a big bench). The traditional relationship between house and garden is changed, disturbed even, the project encompasses both in the same construction.

Stud Horse Mountain in Washington by Balance Associates, Architects

Sunday, June 29th, 2014

Article source: Balance Associates, Architects

This 3,500 square foot home is located at the end of a ridge overlooking the Methow Valley in Northeast Washington State.

The house is arranged around a courtyard to provide a sheltered area from the exposed location on the ridge. It is separated into four parts, each orientated to different views and solar exposure. A large screen porch forms a connection between the living and sleeping wings to provide an insect free outdoor dining and living space. The shed roofs with cathedral ceilings slope with the contours of the hill to reduce the overall scale and impact to the structure as it is viewed from the valley floor below.

The requirement of the client was consisting of a small cabin for guests.

It was thought as an element that stands on the ground with almost no intervention of it. For the same reason it was thought in 2 stories. That way less surface deals with the ground.

The project is a 540cm cube (exterior measure) of wooden structure with two stories inside.
