Weekend house in Merchtem, Belgium by OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

Article source: OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen

This weekend house occupies the complete surface of a deep lot in small town in Flanders. The long backyard of an existing row house is transformed into the weekend house proper; the whole length becomes the house, turning the existing building into a guest house. The new house is organized as a perspective sequence of four equal rooms, thus providing a sequence of similar spaces whose infill is always different. The sequence of spaces organizes a variety of distinct characteristics—a garden, a pool house, a courtyard, a living room. Central wall openings create an enfilade throughout the different spaces and a sliding glass roof enhances the flexibility of their usage. Each of the rooms gets its specificity through its particular furniture. Together they form a set of interlocking mini-universes.

House in the Mountains in Cederberg , South Africa by Wolff Architects

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

Article source: Wolff Architects

The site

The site for this house is on a farm deep in the Cederberg mountains in South Africa, a landscape dense with biodiversity of the Cape Floristic Region.

The setting for the house was determined by three factors, firstly a ‘bald’spot in the vegetation was selected (in consultation with botanists) to minimise the impact of the house on the flora.

Secondly, since the clients prefer to live outdoors as far as possible, “rooms”were found in the natural landscape which could accommodate outdoor cooking and eating, living and sleeping. The built part of the house facilitates living in the unbuilt part of the house.

Villas Finestre in Ixtapa, México by CC ARQUITECTOS / MANUEL CERVANTES CESPEDES

Saturday, October 4th, 2014

Article source: CC ARQUITECTOS / MANUEL CERVANTES CESPEDES

The villas were planned as a delicate project insertion on the site and its environment. Based on this, the main guidelines for their design were: topography, natural environment and the solar orientation. After highly considering these factors, a series of spaces where placed in direct unification of the exterior with the interior, making sure the privacy of different owners and their views were respected.

HOME CAPITAL in Brasília – DF, Brazil by Ney Lima

Saturday, October 4th, 2014

Article source: Ney Lima

The house of architecture influenced by movements that emerged in the 60s – the same as the construction of Brasilia – has no such historical recovery by mere coincidence. The result was a request of residents who love the modernist style and one of the Brazil Capital and from the decision of the architect who chose to create a coherent work with the city, which today is the greatest living example of that school, that clashes with the local context.

LOPEZ HOUSE in Eagle Rock, California by Martin Fenlon Architecture

Saturday, October 4th, 2014

Article source: Martin Fenlon Architecture

This project, located in the Eagle Rock area of Los Angeles, is situated on an irregularly-shaped, steeply-sloping lot. Faced with a limited budget, it was particularly challenging to negotiate the constraints of the lot while taking advantage of the site’s sweeping view. The owners wanted the house to evoke the area’s craftsmen architecture, so this vernacular served as a basis for the design.

Naruse House in Machida, Japan by MDS Co.Ltd

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

Article source: MDS Co.Ltd

The site is situated in a residential district on an undulating land in the suburb of Tokyo. The house stands on an irregular shaped lot facing a junction of three slightly sloping roads. Plan of the building is composed of exterior walls placed parallel to site perimeters, with garage and garden subtracted from those. Private rooms are provided along the exterior walls, and the remaining space is allocated for a public space for family gatherings. The shared space is defined by rotated walls set along spatial axis at various angles according to the surroundings, creating a sense of distortion in space. The ground level has stepped floors according to inclination of the land, and a floor that can be used as dining table is located at the center.

TORREÃO HOUSE in Brasília, Brazil by Bloco Arquitetos

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

Article source: Bloco Arquitetos

The house is located in a residential area in Brasília, far away from the urban center and occupied by small gated communities. This part of the city still presents some characteristics of the original countryside that has originated it, with wide open spaces and native vegetation. The young couple´s desire to have a house that would integrate itself with the surrounding landscape was the starting point of the project. Our objective was to use the architecture to highlight the landscape, not the other way around. An existing natural preservation area in the south and west sides of the plot and its strong descending slope towards the backside have both directed our response. A big existing artificial landfill located three meters below the street level was extended using the soil that was digged out for the construction of the house. We used the resulting space to place all the internal areas in only one level. That decision has allowed the house to remain partially hidden below the street level, providing an unblocked view to the landscape.
