Villa N1 in Sweden by Lindvall A & D

Friday, April 20th, 2018

Article source: Lindvall A & D

Villa N1, designed by Jonas Lindvall of the Swedish multidisciplinary design studio Lindvall A & D, is a single-family summerhouse located on the west coast of Sweden. It is situated in an area that was once a popular holiday region, but is now inhabited all year-round. Drawing on the vernacular of the region, which is renowned for its wooden barns with horizontal planks, the 190 m2 single-storey house is built entirely of wood, including the façade and roof.

A Break on the hill

Hat house in Kobe, Japan by FUMIASO ARCHITECT & ASSOCIATES

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

Article source: FUMIASO ARCHITECT & ASSOCIATES

The site lying in the middle of the landscape where houses are layered towards Mt. Rokko. While sunny and irregular houses are lined up, there are many homes that open on the south side (sea side), and there is some kind of homogeneity. In building a house in this place, the inner wall was first set at an angle to the light on the south side (sea side), and the axis of the wall was inclined at 45 degrees on the plane. The outer wall was an elongated rectangle in the east and west to the east and west, and the wall extending 45 degrees was enclosed once with a frontage of 5.8 meters and a depth of 13 meters. As a result, the depth of 5.8 meters from the south opening is obliquely about 8.2 meters, so the light gradation appears more clearly. Also, due to the wall tilted at 45 degrees, the light crosses due to the difference in the depth of the space of the light that changes from the east to the west and the material changes, it melts and feels the dimensions of the light over the multidimensional. Moreover, it gives plans migratability, and it generates experiential depth to every direction.

Helen’s House in Gdynia, Poland by MSWW Ministerstwo Spraw We Wnetrzach

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

Article source: MSWW Ministerstwo Spraw We Wnetrzach

Helen’s House is a new story of a house which springs out from the old urban fabric of Gdynia. The interior of the house has been inspired by its body where the internal architecture of homely space is shaped by the division of particular rooms. A dialogue of wood and concrete creates the main suspense which develops the temperature of the interior. Entwined in a mutual relation, these two materials unpretentiously spread through equivocal surfaces – walls, ceilings. And the noble light oak wood seems to be the winner here. Its warmth creates the pleasure that can be experienced in that space. It warms up the shades of grayness, concrete textures and hard materials.

OVULE in Tokyo, Japan by TOMOKAZU HAYAKAWA ARCHITECTS

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

Article source: TOMOKAZU HAYAKAWA ARCHITECTS 

This is a small house in a residential area in Bunkyo-ku Tokyo. We set large windows on the open south side and set a green screen as south facade by making planter boxes on each floor. The ceiling at the window is mirror finished, it functions as a device that green captures inside the room. The eaves were deeply attached to each floor, the void was divided by the planters. Keeping an appropriate distance with neighbors, we just imagined a meditation space that can live together with GREEN plants in small streets. We thought here is not ‘modest living’ of ‘small dwell’ but a ‘BIG LIFE’ of ‘SMALL DWELL’.

PH Lavalleja in Buenos Aires, Argentina by CCPM Arquitectos

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

Article source: CCPM Arquitectos

PH is the name given to a traditional housing typology in Buenos Aires, characterised by its high density and low rise. Set in the last unit of a long plot, PH Lavalleja coexists with the neighbouring free plan, high rise residential buildings that surround it. The views from them frame the scenario in which architecture emerges, opening possibilities for public space in the interior of the block.

Lopera House in Córdoba, Spain by DRM ESTUDIO

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

Article source: DRM ESTUDIO

The Lopera House is a single-family home in a neighborhood with single- and multi-family housing in northern Pozoblanco, located in Cordoba, Spain.

Three fundamental ideas are at the core of the design: natural light, entrance through a garden, and openness while retaining privacy. On a north-east-oriented plot, the H-shaped house, articulated by two courtyards, allows natural light to penetrate into every interior and exterior space. A pure and clean geometry enhances the massive nature and privacy of the proposal. The entry opens into a light-filled central courtyard, where a vertical garden has been designed as a new interpretation of the traditional patio of Andalucia.

ChangGe Village Farm House Remodel Project in China by Evolution Design

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

Article source: Evolution Design 

Background Information

The project is situated in ChangGe Village, Daxing County, in Beijing’s southwestern suburb. Subject of rebuild is a worn-out farm house built in the early 1970’s, with its original wood-brick structure commonly seen in north China’s country side. Before the remodel, inside the dim and shabby house (or a shack to be more exact), walls were coking dark, covered by more than 40 years of hard cooking smokes & ashes. The place had no water supply nor a restroom – its residents, a senior farm couple, needed to walk out 100m around the house to get to the closest loo in the neighborhood. The house’s long but narrow courtyard facing south functioned as a pathway for the family’s only transport vehicle, a three-wheeler, which was inconveniently parked in a dead end. Even worse, interior floor elevation of the house was almost 20 cm lower than the courtyard, turning the house into a flooding pond whenever it rained, a safety threat to the entire building structure. Ironically, the area was troubled by water shortage – water gets cut off almost daily, sometimes during peak evening hours.

Article source: Openbox Architects co.,ltd

It all started with the owner’s dream to create a “place” for lively and colorful activities on an old family land.  The development should reflect memorable unique style. Also, the development should be able to handle broad variety of activities. With no other preconceived ideas about the appearance, the owner came to OPENBOX with the first concept keyword, “Ngan Wat” (Temple festival). Then, we began by studying the site and develop “Ngan Wat” into tangible images and forms.
