Alcoutins House in Lisboa, Portugal by Guedes Cruz Architects

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Article source: Guedes Cruz Architects 

The site is the plane where our projects become architecture.

It is on this that we build and what we see are the apparent forms, those which appear above this plane.

In the Alcoutins House the real form is that which has as a support a plane which is 3.5 metres below ground level. It is like a lake, where the volumes float or rest on the base, where we see only the part that appears above the waterline.

S House in Lima, Peru by domenack arquitectos

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Article source: domenack arquitectos

The house is the result of dealing with three important variables: satisfying the functional needs of the family, adapting the design to a difficult sloping topography without resorting to complicate and expensive structures, and capturing the views towards a golf course despite the fact that the plot is not adjacent to it.

Nakano fireproof wooden House in Tokyo Prefecture, Japan by Masashi Ogihara Architect & Associates

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Article source: Masashi Ogihara Architect & Associates

A site is an area where a residence crowds in Tokyo.

Since restriction of the 7-meter minimum altitude had started, many houses of 3 stories were built and had been located in a line around the site.

Therefore, except the south side which a road connects, they were the conditions which cannot expect many taking in outside environment to an inside.

57 Tivoli Road in South Yarra, Australia by b.e Architecture

Thursday, April 24th, 2014

Article source: b.e Architecture

The house, 57 Tivoli Road, is situated on a corner block in the inner city Melbourne suburb of South Yarra.

Formally one of a series of attached row houses of disparate & eclectic housing styles, the exposed corner site meant a protective building was required for both visual and acoustic privacy, and the design seeks to create an enclosed shelter for the occupants, as well as forming an architectural bookend to the procession of houses which precede it.

Holston River House by Sanders Pace Architecture

Thursday, April 24th, 2014

Article source: Sanders Pace Architecture

A young couple approached our firm in late 2011 asking if we would help evaluate the feasibility of building their first home together on a rocky, heavily wooded East Tennessee site. The primary site constraints were clearly visible in the form of moss covered rock outcroppings scattered throughout the wooded hillside. Initial conceptual design efforts focused on options which limited the impact on the site while taking advantage of the unique opportunities presented by this rugged landscape. Early schemes were narrow and linear, weaving around the rock outcroppings and following the site’s contours in an effort to limit the elevation change from front to back.
