JJ—Family House in Bratislava, Slovakia by JRKVC

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

Article source: JRKVC 

The site is located over an emerging development in Záhorská Bystrica, a small town near the capital. The spacious plot recalls a crater that is open into beautiful vistas on one side and protected by steep slopes on the rest. Mostly this rare combination of space and intimacy led us to the idea of an extroverted, open house.

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

Article source: Bedaux de Brouwer Architecten

House Berkel-Enschot is situated within a rural landscape of profound beauty. Next to a green triangular shaped juncture there’s a collection of old barns and farmhouses. The principal idea was to design a residence that would fit well within this setting and would offer lots of interesting views outward, from an interior immersed in light.

On a beautiful plot marked by its position in the middle of an immense agricultural terrain with views to Sierra Nevada comes the commission for designing a home for a young sports enthusiast professional.

The commission presented a clear program in which the main dwelling would add a second home – apartment that would serve to houseguests or for a possible extension of the main structure in the future. A large gym for promoter use and an area for his mother’s garden characterize the residential space available.

Commercial Space Turned into a Loft in Barcelona, Spain by EGUE Y SETA

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

Article source: EGUE Y SETA

From the outside, the vertical shutters draw wooden strips over a sight of a rich green hedgerow and a leafy bush. ¿Are they just the outside trees reflected over the windows panes? ¿or are these transparencies?

To step in this former commercial space turned into a loft, we need to open a wide and generous solid “Iroco” wood set of double doors with iron fittings custom made at the owner´s iron foundry. And as soon as we set foot over the natural oak parquet, we are welcomed by a huge “fish tank” without fish, were leaves and green blossoms float in amidst almost liquid light.  We are not talking about the typical bamboo reeds, nor about the very solemn Zen like interior garden, but about an arrangement of local trees of varying heights over a bed of pine bark splashed over by a cascade of light beaming from a false skylight. Surrounding this spectacular garden: The whole house.

Low Price Private House in Tienen, Belgium by AST 77 Architecten

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

Article source: AST 77 Architecten

This compact house in a quiet neighborhood in Tienen . Proposed by the architects vision has led to a remarkable architectural appearance that attracts attention in the street but whose shape remains very simply.

Thanks to the total housing concept one could offer an answer to the limited budget and the not so favorable orientation of the land. To exploit the southwestern orientation to the street as possible, the architects swapped the “front and back “. That way they have a terrace and a garden , not to the rear of the house , but on the street laid out so that the living areas could be targeted. To the southwest in this logic to the traditional location of the areas to rotate, the front door to the back of the housing is provided.

Kilham House in Winchester, U. K by AR Design Studio

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

Article source: AR Design Studio

Nestled along a leafy lane on the outskirts of Winchester sits Kilham House. Once a tired building with a confusing layout, the house now boasts a contemporary update that really transforms the house into the five-bedroomed family home that it desperately needed to be. A grand, double-height entrance guides you into the building, immediately bringing you into the heart of the home which has now been become the main living space for the family. A large expanse of sliding glazing gives views into the garden, allowing the three children to run wild whilst the parents can relax in the central space and still keep a watchful eye.

White or visible light can be split into monochromatic beams of light by passing it through an obstacle that forces the different waves which make up white light to travel at different speeds. This is the concept from which this small building developed.

This project involved designing a house for a young couple. Formally is a simple volume, consisting of two slabs, floor and ceiling.
