Perched House in Melbourne, Australia by Rara Architecture

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

Article source: Rara Architecture

Perched House is a light extension at the rear of an inner city semi-detached Edwardian house that sweeps over your head.

The brief and site are common in inner-city Melbourne properties. Usually, because of the need to pack in as much space and storage as possible, the spaces are susceptible to becoming dark and feeling cramped. We decided to stick to the essentials and neatening up the layout to reduce dead space while playing with natural light to increase the drama and the effect – the space is in fact quite small, but no one would think so.

Aresta House in Brasília, Brazil by BLOCO Arquitetos

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

Article source: BLOCO Arquitetos

The house is located in a residential area far away from the city center in Brasília. The weather in this part of Brazil is characterized by a thermal amplitude that causes the temperatures to be normally mild in the morning and either hot or very hot during the afternoons. The neighboring lots allows the buildings to be very close from each other, however, the view to the west; the one that is directly exposed to the afternoon sun, has unobstructed views towards the valley.

Tello House in Morelos, Mexico by PRODUCTORA

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

Article source: PRODUCTORA 

The program of this single-family dwelling is resolved in four staggered volumes each with a 5 x 5 meter footprint. The staggering occurs both in plan and cross-section, and responds to different conditions. The staggered plan responds to the integration into the project of an existing large tree on the site, and the positioning of a garage. The staggered cross-section corresponds to the slope of the site, forming connections between the different spaces that are set off from each other vertically. The double-height dining room functions as the home’s principal space, articulating the program by means of the central staircase that links all of the vertically staggered spaces.

Haussmann Stories in Paris, France by chartier-corbasson architectes

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

Article source: chartier-corbasson architectes

At 85 Championnet there was an empty plot of land, with a plan that was too convoluted to be constructed in a classic way, like the rest of the street, built in the Haussmann era. The rue Championnet is indeed occupied by a long ribbon of Haussmannian facades all more or less identical.

The building takes place, leaving empty spaces that, in response to the adjoining courses, create views.
