Eira House in Vale de Cambra, Portugal by AR Studio Architects

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

Article source: AR Studio Architects 

Located in the city of Vale de Cambra, the Casa da Eira (literally “The House of the threshing-floor”) was a rehabilitation challenge with about 400m2 of construction.

A century-old house that was very degraded and needed a major overhaul, that would revive the memory of the original design without forgetting the current needs. The owner wanted a residence where he could have a traditional and familiar setting, not forgetting its irreverent and creative side. A place where friends are always welcome.

The Pool House in Randwick New South Wales, Australian by Luigi Rosselli Pty Ltd – Architects

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

Article source: Luigi Rosselli Pty Ltd – Architects

The wraparound swimming pool plays the starring role in these alterations and additions and becomes the architectural pivot that binds one hundred years of history.

The organic two-storey addition at the back of a single storey 1910 cottage is surrounded by a swimming pool and the water is the focus that holds the two distinct sections of the house together.

Gokturk 118 in Eyup Istanbul by CM Mimarlik

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

Article source: CM Mimarlik

This Project was designed as two separated blocks located on adjacent plots with different regulations, merging to a corner. The two blocks with different heights 12.5 m and 15.50 m, has been unified regarding their facade clearances. Within the evolving facade of the Çamlık Street in the last 10 year, these blocks were injected with a cynic eccentricity to the existing pattern. The form emerges from the meeting of the two separately perceived prisms. The entrance of the blocks is from the Sedef Street perpendicular to the Çamlık Street and both blocks are connected from this entrance.

HOUSE B in Zagreb, Croatia by SODAarhitekti

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

Article source: SODAarhitekti 

Parcela The plot for the construction of a family house is situated on the slopes of Medvednica, in the northwestern part of the city. The terrain is an ideal south-facing slope. The house is located in the longitudinal west-east direction, in order to maximize the benefits od of the south orientation and to allow a view of the city from the entire house. It is designed with a simple gesture of pulling the upper floor volume in a relation to the ground floor volume. This formed two valuable outer spaces as a functional extension of interior of the house – the entrance to the parking lots, which covers the console to the west, and a terrace with a roof garden for parents in the east. Cantelevered space can be used as a covered dining terrace. The ground floor has a living room, dining room and kitchen, the upper floor consists of sleeping spaces, and the basement is the utilitarian floor. The organization of the house is done around the centrally placed two-storey living room, which is vertically connected with the upper floor gallery, with dining area and the kitchen on the same level and with the exterior through the large glass walls. Gallery serves as a horizontal connection between parental bedroom and children’s rooms and as a playroom. Large windows oriented to the south allow the decline of winter sun rays deep into the house and make passive heating possible. Duplex living room accumulates heat and distributes it to other areas of the house. In the summer, the house is protected from the sun with a pergola and movable blinds.

Casa SFA in Torreón, Mexico by Arqmov Workshop

Monday, September 11th, 2017

Article source: Arqmov Workshop

The SFA house is a refurbishment project that is faithful to the client’s specific requirements. Arqmov Workshop initially suggested a brand new project, given the previous (quite unfortunate) refurbishment work on the property. However, the nostalgia of its owner led the firm to reconsider adapting his childhood home to suit his new family – with a wife and three children. Given more than 30 years since the construction of the house, the decision was made to strip its original structure bare, to use the house’s spatial potential and to take advantage of its location opposite to a golf course. The dividing floor of the residence was demolished to create a large double height volume with large windows to the rear and interior facade to the garden and the swimming pool. Due to the importance placed on light intake in this project, a void was opened on the wall supporting the stairs towards the bar area through which a shaft of light pierces the space.

Lofthuset in Vallsta, Sweden by Hanna Michelson

Monday, September 11th, 2017

Article source: Hanna Michelson

Bergaliv Landscape hotel has completed the Loft house (Lofthuset), the first out of four planned getaways on the hillside of Åsberget mountain in the north of Sweden.

The 33 foot tall house is constructed in two stories, 14 sqm each. The lower, a sheltered room in close relation to the surrounding forrest. The upper: a roofed outdoor space stripped from walls allowing an uninterrupted view over the valley below. The dualism of the site with its closeness to nature combined with the expansive view has set the rules for the small house and is expressed in the two contrasting spaces sharing the purpose of providing a sanctuary and a peaceful vantage point for the visitors.

Housing at St. Sebastian Church in Münster, Germany by BOLLES+WILSON

Friday, September 8th, 2017

Article source: BOLLES+WILSON

In 2009 BOLLES+WILSON won the 1st prize for housing and a kindergarten on the site of the 1960ies St Sebastian Church. It was expected that the emblematic oval form of the church be demolished. Instead the kindergarten colonized the nave. It was opened in 2013 – a much published reuse with interior green weather protected play decks.

2LH House in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Arch. Luciano Kruk

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017

Article source: Arch. Luciano Kruk 

After carrying out some market research on the middle classes’ housing needs in the Northern Greater Buenos Aires area, our client, a medium sized building company, learnt how scarce commercial offer of high constructive and architectural quality houses is as opposed to how greater the demand for it. In view of these results, they decided to have a replicable housing prototype designed for them by our Studio: 2HL House.
