casa 3 in Foggia, Italy by Raimondo Guidacci

Friday, October 18th, 2013

Article source:  Raimondo Guidacci

This two-family house is located in Orsara di Puglia (southItaly), in a hill slope called Piano Paradiso.

The house is composed by an underground level, designed as garage, a groundfloor and an attic.

The main feature of this project is the roof, indeed it is modelled by the combination of three different skillion roofs with opposite orientation: two pointed towards the town centre and one oriented to the mountains. The entrance is placed on one side, connected with a minor street running along the slope.

CORE in Joplin, Missouri by Q4 Architects

Friday, October 18th, 2013

Article source: Q4 Architects

CORE recently won first prize in the AIA Designing Recovery design competition for the Joplin, Missouri site.

Designed by Q4 Architects, CORE in Joplin, MO is designed to address the local vernacular by combining two single-cell homes: a centrally located \”Safe House\” acts as the hearth and divides a \”Perimeter House\”. The Safe House contains all of the functions of ‘home’ that are necessary for a family to recover quickly from disaster and live for an extended period of time until rebuilding is possible.

House IV in Eindhoven, The Netherlands by De Bever Architecten

Saturday, October 12th, 2013

Article source: De Bever Architecten

The house is situated on a corner lot in the typical 30’s district ‘de Elzent’ against the natural landscape of the river Dommel valley, in the center of Eindhoven, The Netherlands. The existing main house is relatively small in structure, however the lot size is sufficient enough to resist an carefully threaded extension. An extension where extra comfort is added to the existing house.

Article source: Maccreanor Lavington

Hoflaan House replaces a two storey, post-war dwelling that had reached the end of its life due to the poor quality of materials available after the war. The street is characterised by deep front and rear gardens, large mature trees and by numerous individual houses of different widths and heights in different materials, built at different times in a wide variety of architectural styles.

The Project is located in an existing condo in La Planicie, overlooking the Golf. Importantly, one of the family members is disabled, so the project should not have any barriers and integrate the lives of others, without altering the aesthetics and function. All in equal conditions. The project is articulated through a 1.50 axle wide circulation, containing all functions in two volumes.
