Before & After – An Oakland House Transformation in California by Baran Studio Architecture

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

Article source: Baran Studio Architecture

The existing Spanish Style house had been modified adhoc (not to mention illegally) over the years with little attention to the net effect. As with many of the transformations we design, we took the existing conditions and capitalized on the best features of the house. These were the big, open back yard, the opportunity to connect the house to the outdoors, and the architectural interest of the split level. We also took queues from the nearby industrial and warehouse elements, and fused them with an interpretation of the neighborhood’s residential qualities. The hybrid result is simultaneously related to the context, and an architecture of its own.

House with one wall in Zurich, Switzerland by Christian Kerez Zürich AG

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

Article source: Christian Kerez Zürich AG 

A two-family house is a building with a wall that divides it into two halves. The dividing wall is the only wall in the entire house. It cannot be crossed anywhere. It has to fulfill functions conventionally assigned to several architectural elements. It is the load bearing structure and the installation core, its folds define all of the rooms and it determines how the view from the entirely glazed building is divided between the two living units. The simplicity of the concept, the reduction of the architecture to a single element, creates substantial dependence and, in turn, makes the building very complex. It is only through that dependence that the wall acquires a compelling and cogent character although, in itself, it can follow any chosen course.

Architectural Studio Sboev3 Architect shared with us the project cottage «Roman-house», which will be built on a plot of land near St. Petersburg. In this house will be to live a family of 4-eh man.
Compositional techniques and concept forms used in the design process are not something new and special, because They are widely distributed in the architecture of individual dwellings European masters. Therefore, the main objective in the design process was the creation of a kind of compromise in the context of the ordinary, traditional building of cottage settlement.
