Mixed Use Infill 3 Houses and an Office in Antwerp, Belgium by Collectief Noord Architecten

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Article source: Collectief Noord Architecten

Three pavillions and a house give shape to an urban garden in the city centre. Each pavillion is similar to the other, but differ like brothers do. Concrete garden blocks in the facade sustain the expression of a garden folly and remind us of the attempts of Wright and Sullivan to democratize ornament. On top of each pavillion there is a roof pavillion: a garden in a garden in the city.

FOREST HOUSE IN IZABELIN NEAR WARSAW, POLAND by BIURO ARCHITEKTONICZNE BARYCZ & SARAMOWICZ

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Article source: BIURO ARCHITEKTONICZNE BARYCZ & SARAMOWICZ

In Izabelin Północny near Warsaw, at Białego Orła street, a villa of shingles and gabions was built to a design by Barycz and Saramowicz Architectural Office. This imposing, luxurious residence is contrarily called A Little House in the Forest, with reference to a playful name of the pre-war villa of the great Polish writer, Melchior Wańkowicz, located in Żoliborz in Warsaw (“The Tiny House”), as it is located on a beautiful plot of land, covered with old pine trees.

Cuña house in Lorquí, Spain by AQSO arquitectos office

Saturday, April 12th, 2014

Article source: AQSO arquitectos office

This house occupies a narrow plot located in a new residential area. The slender shape and the sloping roof stand out in the landscape as a wedge ascending against the slight slope of the land.

The residence is located in Lorquí, a small town in Southern Spain surrounded by a landscape shaped by eroded hills known as ‘Montes Blancos’. The ascending shape of the house outlines a triangular elevation standing over the terrain, capturing views towards the Segura River´s meadow.

Tree House by 6a architects

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Article source: 6a architects

The Tree House was developed in response to the mother of a busy family who in finding herself reliant on a wheelchair was also finding herself increasingly confined to a single room.

Her home is a pair of small grade II listed 1830’s brick weavers cottages, joined together in the 1970’s as part of the GLC homesteading scheme.  The ground floor rooms of the two cottages are on different levels and both a half storey above the garden behind.

VERTICAL PATIO HOUSE in Barcelona, Spain by ESTUDI NAO SCP

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Article source: ESTUDI NAO SCP

Usually in Catalonia, the plots in the old villages for detached housing are approximately 5 meters wide, adapted to the typical structural system: two parallel load-bearing walls that support regular beams to build a slab.  Sometimes, as it happens in our case, the resultant plot is really outstretched making really difficult the access of light and ventilation in all the rooms of the house.

Tunquén House in Valparaiso, Chile by MasFernandez arquitectos

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014

Article source: MasFernandez arquitectos

Thinking about a second home, it is inevitable to imagine a place with special features, much more if it is facing the sea. The Elizabeth House, as we call it for a long time in honor of his owner, who is a single 50 years old mother, reflects very well the clarity, simplicity and honesty with which, in our view, should tackle these projects.

i.n.g in Toyota, Japan by Katsutoshi Sasaki + Associates

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014

Article source: Katsutoshi Sasaki + Associates

This is the project for two-family house by reconstruction. Every time I witnessed the demolition work before reconstruction, I’ve had some uncomfortable feelings by the view of vacant land. The old house is a building containing lots of thoughts and memories for the owner and it is also a part constituting the town-scape from the community viewpoint. Therefore, based on the idea that there should be a way to renew the house while keeping the old town-scape even in reconstruction project, I proposed a house with Japanese-style outlook to fit naturally into the existing fence and external garden.

Cut and Frame by ashton porter architects

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014

Article source: ashton porter architects

Reorganisation of the ground floor layout of a two storey semi detached residential property and the replacing of a garden shed at the rear of the garden with a writing hut.

The house design was driven by the requirement for both clients to work from home and both have separate spaces. The connection between the house and the garden writing hut was therefore a key element of the project.
