The Pierre in San Juan Islands, Washington by Olson Kundig Architects

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

Article source: Olson Kundig Architects

The owner’s affection for a stone outcropping on her property and the views from its peak inspired the design of this house. Conceived as a bunker nestled in the rock, the Pierre (French for stone) celebrates the materiality of the site. From certain angles, the house—with its rough materials, encompassing stone, green roof, and surrounding foliage—almost completely disappears into nature.

The house Chapéu Virado in Cascais, not created by a notorious author, belongs to an extremely rich period of Portuguese Architecture, in which confronted two realities, the architectural modernity on one hand and on the other, the tradition represented by the architect Raul Lino, very famous Portuguese architect in the middle of the XX century.

V’ House in Maastricht, Netherlands by Wiel Arets Architects

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

Article source: Wiel Arets Architects

V’ House was constructed for a couple that collects vintage cars, and is stitched within the medieval tapestry of Maastricht. The city dictates all new structures remain within the envelope of pre-existing buildings, and so a cut was created in the house’s front façade to generate a triangulated surface, which leads from one neighbor’s sloped roof to the opposite neighbor’s vertical bearing wall.

House Workshop in Prihueico Lake, Chile by Schmidt Architects Associates

Friday, January 17th, 2014

Article source: Schmidt Architects Associates 

The brief from this young couple was to design both living accommodation and studio space for sculpture & painting. Located in a millenary old forest of towering trees, on the shores of Lake Pirihueico in the south of Chile.

The proposal was to make a brightly lit and welcoming refuge, which inhabits the rough nature of its environment, enjoying this from within a core which maintains its distance, but at the same time both integrates with and emphasizes its surroundings. Formally it assimilates the vernacular architecture of the south, with large (overhanging??) roofs and simple rounded geometric volumes roughened?? through the ageing of the timber. The building form is not willful given the wet summers and extremely snow filled winters experienced by this remote lake set amongst the foothills of the Andes, but at the same time it contributes to the fantastic existing nature of the place.

Seaside House in Baltic Sea Coast, Poland by Ultra Architects

Friday, January 17th, 2014

Article source: Ultra Architects

The very first task was to choose a structural material which would work in heavy natural conditions on a plot where the building had to stand. For the sake of instability of the ground and high level of ground water, the shell of a building must be heavy and waterproof. It also must be firm and solid since we designed large windows to open the interior for a beautiful view of a seaside landscape.

The Orangery by Liddicoat & Goldhill LLP

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

Article source: Liddicoat & Goldhill LLP

A double-height back extension and ground floor re-organisation for a growing family. Our clients have lived in Wimbledon with their four sons since 1989. They came to us to adapt the house to their evolving needs.

Their neat 1930s house is one of a collection built on a steep hill overlooking South London. Its original design apparently ignored the ground on which it was built; from the street, it sits comfortably on the site; from the rear, the living spaces float a storey above the mature garden, which is left feeling aloof and separate. This disconnection is also felt inside: the generous space provided at basement level is poorly lit and truncated from the upper parts of the house.

Sausalito Home by Sven Lavine Architecture

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

Article source: Sven Lavine Architecture

Originally designed & permitted as 2 detached building on one subdivided lot located on the Sausalito waterfront, this project has been redesigned as a larger single family residence which we determined would better fit the site, neighborhood, and clients needs. It was with trepidation that we abandoned the first design that had taken years to permit, but in the end, we all are much more happy with the revised design.

Family house in Dunakeszi, Hungary by Boczkó Architects

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

Article source: Boczkó Architects 

Our customer wanted to build a one-storey family house with attic on a currently built-up corner lot in Dunakeszi, a suburban residential area situated on the bank of the Danube.

At the time of design, the lot was already built-up with a high pitched roof brick building and a wooden frame outbuilding on it. These buildings were demolished.
