Article source: YLAB Arquitectos

The project is situated in the Vallvidrera neighborhood, a residential area with views overlooking the city of Barcelona, surrounded by the Collserola natural park, in a very sloped and small plot situated between a valley and a pine forest.

The objectives of the project were to get the maximum possible building area within a tight budget and an optimized orientation of all openings while protecting the privacy of the owners.

ALLEY house in Sumida ward, Tokyo by APOLLO Architects & Associates

Thursday, October 10th, 2013

Article source: APOLLO Architects & Associates

A client for a house, of which I designed and supervised eight years ago, got married and bought a small lot near Tokyo Skytree, which is located in a place with a downtown atmosphere. Due to difficulty of construction within the small narrow site at the end of a narrow path, a wooden construction was chosen. Soft, dark brown Galvanized steel exterior walls create a Japanese impression, and the house naturally blends into the old neighborhood.

By using glass walls on the street side, indoor views include the surrounding environment.

The municipality of Wemmel , situated on the outskirts of Brussels, is well known for its green areas with their monumental villas of the upper class.  After a search of several years, the principal saw a house situated in one of those quarters.  It was not his dream house but because of its marvellous location and the south orientated garden, he decided to buy it.

Hajdo house in Odorheiu Secuiesc, Romania by s.c. BLIPSZ s.r.l

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

Article source: s.c. BLIPSZ s.r.l

The land dominates the context defining factors: the orientation of the houses, favorable for every day life is obviously towards South, yet the slope which offers the view of the town in the valley and the faraway mountains descends to the North. The project assumes this contradiction and organizes the living space around the South-West facing terrace up the slope; the terrace is partially shaded from East and West and its position is vaguely reminiscent of the traditional household, organized around the yard.

BARBACOA HOUSE in Terrassa (Barcelona), Spain by Pepe Gascón Arquitectura

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

Scene 1
[A very well-matched elderly couple is discussing what trees to plant and where in the garden of their second residence, a small, detached, single-storey house with a barbecue as big as the living-dining room. It is winter and the house only has the roof framing in place.]

She: A cypress. That’s the tree that every Catalan farmhouse has at the entrance. Right here’s where we’re going to plant it. Then we’ll see it as soon as we come up from the street and it will welcome us.
