Kuro no ie in Sasebo, Japan by TETO Architects

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

Article source: TETO Architects

The outer wall of the deep ink black cedar and the double tying roof are impressive this house. We made the skip-floor for making full use of the site with the height difference.
We arranged the main living space on the 2nd floor upstairs from the entrance. We have proposed a way of living to enjoy comfortable wind and sunlight to be taken in through semi-outdoor wood deck while protecting the privacy of the family.

In consideration of moisture conditioning, we chose some natural and organic materials, such as diatomaceous earth, Japanese paper for pasting walls, solid silk flooring and red cedar as the indoor finishing. A calm contrast has been made of finishing color with off-white and brown.

Prestigious Villa in Ramat Gan, Israel by Dror Barda Architects

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

Article source: Dror Barda Architects 

This prestigious villa is composed of two buildings: A house with a built-up area of about 700 m looking out onto the pool, and a guest house with a built-up area of about 200 m that sits directly on the edge of the pool.

Within the framework of this unique project, we challenged the forces of gravity by means of a floating cube/ark with a size of about 70 m which serves as the master bedroom and is connected by a bridge to another part of the residential floor. The ceiling of the ark is disconnected from the rounded roof above it, and an upper window lets the daylight in (with appropriate lighting also during evening hours), completing the ark’s detachment on all sides.

Family house in Punta Canide, Spain by Díaz y Díaz Arquitectos

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

Article source: Díaz y Díaz Arquitectos

This detached house is located in Punta Canide, Oleiros, in the Bay, with stunning sea views. Due to this location, the building should respond to some very specific buildable constrains and setbacks, required by municipal regulations, as well as the morphology of the land itself, which required adapting to the slope of the plot, with a drop of nearly three metres. We also searched for the best orientation to promote the best views of the building sight.

Three materials are the absolute protagonists of this work, concrete, wood and glass.

Ctrl+Green in Madrid Río, Spain by RuizEsquiroz + Marta Muñoz Arquitectos

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

Article source: RuizEsquiroz + Marta Muñoz Arquitectos 

Ctrl+Green is a renovation project of an industrial space, changing its use into an office/house in the vicinity of Madrid Río. The architectural strategies are based on duplication and saving, both energy and space. Firstly, we duplicate some architectural elements (the floor and the façade) creating active chambers. Secondly, and thanks to the first strategy, we save and store energy as well as multiple objects (mainly books, tools and furniture), clearing the way for the views of Madrid´s skyline.

Refurbishment of a penthouse in Madrid, Spain by Mariano Molina Iniesta

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

Article source: Mariano Molina Iniesta 

When faced sometimes with the question “what kind of architecture are we up to?”, the most convincing answer is probably “the one that circumstances allow”. This is particularly true in the case of a refurbishment, in which preexistences, coupled with the program and the wishes of the client, leave little room for a purely speculative proposal.

Stone Clubhouse in Santa Ponça, Spain by GRAS Arquitectos

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

Article source: GRAS Arquitectos

A golf club house always combines a social human activity with the fact of being in the middle of a natural environment, a golf course. The Project maximizes this combination: social interaction, it is a “ club” and landscape; A certain centrality, recognition is always needed; By being a clubhouse, no matter it is a small building, the project is the center, the heart, of a big natural area: it needs visibility without being invasive in the landscape.

Double house in Ulsan, SOUTH KOREA by On Architecture

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

Article source: MasilWIDE

The house is located on a sloped corner site in the Innovation City, and it’s looking at a distant mountain in the northeast. The site is sitting at an intersection of a mixed-use housing block and a general dispatched housing block. To use the existing slope, the floor of the retail area on the 1st floor is divided from its corner into two in a diagonal direction, and the level of those two floors are set differently in order to maximize spatial flexibility. For the house on the 3rd floor, its access, entrance and living room are designed to offer a view to the mountain in the northeast. The living room is placed on a space where the mass is segmented in two directions so that it can be linked with a deck outside and also take advantage of natural ventilation all the time.
