Riggins House in Cabin John, Maryland by Robert M. Gurney

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

Article source: Robert M. Gurney

Located in Cabin John, Maryland, this 4,900 square foot house is sited at the end of a manicured lawn, and looks over the edge of a steeply sloping wooded site adjacent to the C&O Canal and the Potomac River.  A light-filled double height circulation axis separates the house’s main volumes, while transverse axes further organize the spaces. Glass and steel bridges cross the circulation space to connect the volumes on the second floor. Primary living spaces bounded by large expanses of glass are oriented towards the river, while secondary spaces open to the lawn.

House with a large hipped roof in Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan by Naoi Architecture & Design Office

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

Article source:  Naoi Architecture & Design Office

This is a house for a family of four, situated on one of the lots for sale at a newly developed area in “satoyama” or semi-natural woodlands. The land is too large for a simple program requested by the client: a private house with a garage for two cars. Taking advantage of the large site area, we proposed a spacious one-story house that is open to the surrounding neighborhood, based on a design concept of “connecting space to nature”. The site faces two streets on the south and the north sides and no fences are installed along the both borders. The front yards on the both sides visually serve as pubic park although they are not accessible by non-residents.

Project California by LEICHT

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

Article source: LEICHT  

From the outside it seems reserved and self-contained but inside surprisingly open, that is the effect of the mi­nimalist family home of this Japanese couple. They live in a beautiful road in Marina del Rey in California. The in­fluence of traditional Japanese architecture is very clear. The layout is based on the measurement of a tatami mat, the Japanese rice straw mat. The simplicity of the fur­nishings and materials together with the minimalism, are characteristic of the Japanese way of life, expressed in the architectural language.

Article source: Inês Lobo Arquitectos Lda

This project involves the building of a block of 18 premises for habitation purposes next to the Óbidos Lake in the future site of the Golf and Country Club – Quinta do Bom Sucesso.

These will be located in one of the far sides of the Quinta with a valley to the east, one of the access roads to the west, a thicket to the south and a group of dwellings to the north. Our proposal is to build on this site, the central theme being that each premise should have an interactive relationship with the surrounding area, under the following conditions

White Cave House in Kanazawa by Takuro Yamamoto Architects

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

Article source: Takuro Yamamoto Architects 

White Cave House is a massive lump engraved by a series of voids interconnected in the shape of a kinked tube. The connection of voids – we call it Cave – is the theme of this house. Internal rooms are designed to enjoy the minimum views of Cave characterized by its whiteness. At the same time, this concept is also the practical solution to realize a courtyard house in Kanazawa city known for heavy snow in Japan.

C-house in Cleveland, Ohio by Robert Maschke Architects

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

Article source: Robert Maschke Architects

C-House is one of three urban villas comprising the Residences of King’s Hill, a unique residential development located on Cleveland’s near west side. Despite being situated within the urban context of the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood, this “virgin” site provides an idyllic enclave within a park-like setting, adjacent to the site’s eastern and southern boundaries. Uninterrupted views of Lake Erie, Cleveland’s downtown and industrial flats, as well as the site’s proximity to a busy vehicular thoroughfare reconnect the site to its urban environment.

G HOUSE in Como, Italy by Lorenzo Guzzini

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

Article source: Lorenzo Guzzini 

The idea of the project is to value an abandoned villa from 19th century in Como, through an architectural re-elaboration of the owners’ s memories.

The family that live into this house is from a central region of Italy, Marche and they used to live among the medieval villages made in bricks. For them construction means matter, bulk and static.

SUNLIGHTHOUSE in Pressbaum, Austria by juri troy architects

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

Article source: juri troy architects

The Velux Sunlighthouse in Pressbaum near Vienna is the first co²-neutral single-family-house in Austria.

The challenge was to create a house that taps the full potential of the plot on the one hand and to develop an energy and ecology concept that would erase the ecological footprint of the house within the next thirty years on the other hand. What distinguishes this project from many ambitious preceding projects is the aim to combine minimized numerical values for energy efficiency with ambitious architecture in spite of an all but ideal plot.

HOUSE WIND in Jalisco, México by Agraz Arquitectos

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

Article source: Agraz Arquitectos

Every project has a connotation that makes it different, unique and unrepeatable. The Wind House has two unusual features, the first one is that it is in a suburb that has not been built yet, having no neighbors whatsoever, and it faces the stunning Primavera Woods. The other one is it’s calling to be a house where kids will grow, the youngest a newborn and the eldest only four years old. And this is doubtlessly the real job, to create the scenery where this kid’s childhood will take place, and therefore several aspects are handled differently.
