House in Chiyosaki, Japan by Coo planning

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

Article source: Coo planning

Nishi-ku, Osaka-shi  A private house of the solitary life built near the Kyocera dome.

Board sticking 1 year passes after completion, and which is an outer wall and board sticking of interior plywood, it’s when it’s being matched.

When I’d like to make a fascinating house because I build hard, you speak and housing has started.

Casual House by Christopher Megowan Design

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

Article source: Christopher Megowan Design

A home as casual and easy going as its residents. Low maintenance, no frills materials were used to create a cost effective yet compelling extension to the rear of a family home in Newport. The middle of the home had long suffered from substandard foundations, this extension replaced this middle section with a new kitchen, living, dining, bathroom and laundry. In addition, existing spaces were extended and converted into a second living area, and two new bedrooms. The brief was to create something low key, beachy, contemporary but still respect the character and materiality of the weatherboard cottage at the front of the property. Room to kick a ball, connection to the outdoors and ease of moving surfboards and sporting equipment from the rear of the house to the car in the front was top of mind for these clients.

Retrospect Vineyards house in Windsor, California by Swatt Miers Architects

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

Article source: Swatt Miers Architects

Retrospect Vineyards, a 20-acre plot in the Russian River Valley, has been producing pinot noir grapes and selling them to nearby wineries for fifteen years. However, when the new owners bought the property in 2010 they knew they wanted to have a greater involvement in the winemaking process. The result was a modern home designed to function as both a family retreat and a working vineyard, respecting the privacy of the residents without hampering the functionality of the land.

NEMO house in Warszawa, Poland by Mobius Architekci ul.

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

Article source: Mobius Architekci ul.

The Nemo Building is located within a picturesque landscape of the Masuria lakes, on a plot with direct access to the lake via a private beach. The building was designed to complete the land form on the spot, as well as to take full advantage of the impressive lake panorama. The house is a rectangle of 50m in total length, which nearly covers the length of the plot available. The internal layout of the house is generally focused around the view of the lake, which is why all rooms face the water. This was one of the main assumptions for the design. In contrast, from the side of the access road, the house appears as veiled and enigmatic. Apart from the glazed entrance and the window illuminating the kitchen, the front wall is nearly devoid of windows and features the entrance gates for the car and boat only. In turn, the lake-side wall was designed as fully glazed.

NOIE -cooperative house in Tokyo, Japan by YUUA Architects and Associates

Sunday, July 19th, 2015

Article source: YUUA Architects and Associates

Designing the relationship of collectivity and individuality

A cooperative house with eleven dwelling units located in the suburb of western Tokyo. Firstly, skeleton plan was provided to the potential residents. Infill design was developed based on this skeleton frame. Under such scheme, the challenge was to develop the space dynamically through interactivity of the skeleton and infill design instead of simply adjusting the infill design into the skeleton frame.

Magnolia Remodel in Seattle, Washington by SHED Architecture & Design

Friday, July 17th, 2015

Article source: SHED Architecture & Design

The owners saw potential in this 1914 craftsman home when they bought it in 2013. The Seattle family had the intention of restoring the home’s original details while also making modern modifications to the traditional layout on the main floor. Influenced by years of living in Japan, the clients wanted a clean and simple aesthetic to suit their minimal lifestyle. The central challenge for SHED Architecture & Design was to rework the floor plan to improve the primary flow of the space. The firm made modifications to the main floor to create a feeling of continuity from the entryway to the backyard while remaining sympathetic to the structure’s native form. The Seattlebased architecture firm manipulated and built upon existing geometry to subtly introduce a new kitchen, bath, laundry and outdoor space that compliment the home’s original bay windows, angled walls and oak floors.

WIESE in Stockerau, Lower Austria by synn architekten ZT-OG

Friday, July 17th, 2015

Article source: synn architekten ZT-OG

Balancing the efficient use of land with private parking needs requires creativeness and a new way of thinking. The ideal solution was found by providing capacity under the houses, claiming more space for outdoor activities and gardens while creating a pleasant living environment. The existing topography provided the ideal location for five refined spilt-level townhouses in a beautifully situated prominent area in Stockerau. An inclining interior wall acts as a divide between each dwelling; and the feature is mirrored once more in the street level view. The parking area leads comfortably down to the kitchen/dining area and smoothly flows up towards the bedroom area. Situated in the southern corner, two semi-detached properties are formed from a crystal-shaped exterior. Each property comes complete with private gardens.
