Article source: Benn & Penna Architects

The project involves significant alterations and additions to two existing Victorian-era workers cottages in the inner Sydney suburb of Balmain. Each of the properties are owned by different generations of the same family and our architectural response investigated the interconnectedness and independence of each of these families.

Refugium by a staircase in Lake Vättern, Closeto Omberg by Petra Gipp Arkitektur

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

Article source: Petra Gipp Arkitektur

The promenade begins at the entrance to the house, continues through the volume and leads on down to the water. A column of light, through the roof, allows the light of the sky to flow down the concrete wall that goes straight through the building.  A wall that embraces the stairs and allows for a fireplace at the edge of the cliff.

Jellyfish House in Marbella, Spain by Wiel Arets Architects

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

Article source: Wiel Arets Architects

Located in Marbella, on the Mediterranean coast of Spain, the Jellyfish House’s neighboring buildings block its view onto the nearby sea. Appropriately, it was chosen to cantilever the house’s pool from its roof, so that the beach and sea can always be seen while sunbathing or swimming. The house is organized around two paths of circulation: a ‘fast’ and ‘slow’ set of stairs, which intertwine and traverse the house’s four levels of living.

House in Daizawa, Japan by Nobuo Araki / The Archetype

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

Article source: Nobuo Araki / The Archetype

Situated in a calm residential area of Setagaya, Tokyo, the rectangular house faces southward, with a garden at the rear. Several meters in front of the house, a concrete wall has been constructed to provide sufficient privacy to the glass-façade house, while retaining a sense of openness.

Southern Highlands House in NSW, Australia by Benn & Penna Architects

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

Article source: Benn & Penna Architects

“A tiny house, like a tiny temple, can be a perfect work of art” – Marion Mahony Griffin

The design is for a new home-office pavilion alongside two existing pavilions on a remote rural property three hours drive south of Sydney. The new building is part of a set of three free standing pavilions that each contain the functions of sleeping, living and working – a configuration reflecting a harmonious life-cycle balance that is interwoven into its natural environment.

House in Perbes, Spain by VIER ARQUITECTOS SLP

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

Article source: Vier Arquitectos

A few times, the devising process of a house starts from youth experiences, from the marks of the place, from childhood as such. On some occasions, the architect can take part somehow in the choice of the place or the plot of land, but it is not frequent, however, to be fortunate enough to have the landscape –as in this case- deeply anchored in the bottom of one’s childhood. We are talking about the entrance to the Ría, the Miño Beach, in A Coruña. This landscape -seen from the southwest side of the hill- is going to be the determining factor in the location of the house.

Construction of a new individual house in Montferrier sur Lez, France by NBJ Architectes

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

Article source: NBJ Architectes

Situated in a pine forest on a plot with a steep, the first job was the creation of an enabling environment for the establishment of a home. The slope is both the first constraint and the major asset of the place to embrace an open landscape on the horizon. Two axes marked two choices in the site making : Firstly, the accompaniment of the slope, in order to work on the establishment of regular level. Like terraces in the landscape, a journey consisted by Corten steel sheets is created to accompany the arrival at home while building the landscape discovery.

Hillside House in Suzhou, China by Pu Miao Architecture

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

Article source: Pu Miao Architecture

Hillside houses tend to belong to one of the two types, the terraces and the tower. While the tower has a more prominent visual appearance, the stepped profile of the terraces allows residents in the rooms same-level accesses to exterior spaces. This design explores a third type–the combined–that takes advantages from both existing models and minimizes their shortcomings. The new prototype tries to produce a better relationship between indoor and outdoor spaces, recreating the traditional Chinese courtyard space on a hillside site. This is part of the author’s experiment to localize Modern Architecture.

Gable Again House in Champaign, Illinois by Jeffery S. Poss, Architect

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

Article source: Jeffery S. Poss, Architect

A well-proportioned 1957 gabled house was constructed on the north edge of a small park.  While the southern view of maturing park trees visible through the glazed gable end is delightful, an owner of dubious taste in the 1970s constructed a curiously awful Mansard carbuncle-of-an-addition to its west.
