Seaside House in Baltic Sea Coast, Poland by Ultra Architects

Friday, January 17th, 2014

Article source: Ultra Architects

The very first task was to choose a structural material which would work in heavy natural conditions on a plot where the building had to stand. For the sake of instability of the ground and high level of ground water, the shell of a building must be heavy and waterproof. It also must be firm and solid since we designed large windows to open the interior for a beautiful view of a seaside landscape.

The Orangery by Liddicoat & Goldhill LLP

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

Article source: Liddicoat & Goldhill LLP

A double-height back extension and ground floor re-organisation for a growing family. Our clients have lived in Wimbledon with their four sons since 1989. They came to us to adapt the house to their evolving needs.

Their neat 1930s house is one of a collection built on a steep hill overlooking South London. Its original design apparently ignored the ground on which it was built; from the street, it sits comfortably on the site; from the rear, the living spaces float a storey above the mature garden, which is left feeling aloof and separate. This disconnection is also felt inside: the generous space provided at basement level is poorly lit and truncated from the upper parts of the house.

Sausalito Home by Sven Lavine Architecture

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

Article source: Sven Lavine Architecture

Originally designed & permitted as 2 detached building on one subdivided lot located on the Sausalito waterfront, this project has been redesigned as a larger single family residence which we determined would better fit the site, neighborhood, and clients needs. It was with trepidation that we abandoned the first design that had taken years to permit, but in the end, we all are much more happy with the revised design.

Family house in Dunakeszi, Hungary by Boczkó Architects

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

Article source: Boczkó Architects 

Our customer wanted to build a one-storey family house with attic on a currently built-up corner lot in Dunakeszi, a suburban residential area situated on the bank of the Danube.

At the time of design, the lot was already built-up with a high pitched roof brick building and a wooden frame outbuilding on it. These buildings were demolished.

House V2 in Dubrovnik, Lozica by 3LHD

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

Article source: 3LHD

House V2 is located in Dubrovnik, in the urbanized area of Lozice. In an attractive location close to the sea, which is determined by steep topography made up of retaining walls, terraces and staircases an existing unsuitable house was replaced by a new one. In keeping with a long tradition of Mediterranean transformation and cultivation of nature and overcoming of “doc” (the local term for a depression: a smaller arable land area), stone walls and altitude differences were used as the basis for laying new topographic layers in horizontal and vertical direction. .

A HOUSE FOR ART COLLECTOR in Geneva, Switzerland by ChristianDupraz Architects

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

Article source: ChristianDupraz Architects

I’d like a massive house, safe and fragrant like my childhood. I will make you a sheltered house like the ones I love.” It is through an on going conversation between the architect and client that the realisation of this house was achieved. On an exceptional site, along the edge of the centre of Geneva, this white house, with its pure geometry, is a part in itself. If the square plan is the basis for its composition, it surprises through its malleability and functional complexity.

Los Bosques House in Chicureo, Santiago de Chile, Chile by MasFernandez Arquitectos

Friday, January 10th, 2014

Article source: MasFernandez Arquitectos

Located on the outskirts of the city of Santiago de Chile, in the Valley of Chicureo, “Los Bosques house” belongs to a young family who previously lived in an apartment in a high density area of the district of Las Condes, Downtown Santiago.
For them the expression of contemporary house played a key role in the project. Simple lines, flexible spaces, outside-inside connection and a central courtyard were part of their duties.

The house is located in a conventional land inside a gated community, west of Guadalajara’s metropolitan area. Is has a north orientation towards the street and south on the back, leaving a free area on the side facing west.

The project begins at the idea of making a house with the minimum ofwalls to feel it completely transparent and openfrom the entry. We decided to make a big hole inside that takes back the old spanish patio, being the protagonist of the residence.
