House ‘VV’ in North Holland, The Netherlands by Architectenbureau K2

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

Article source: Architectenbureau K2

House ‘VV’ provides living space for a couple who were already living in the small waterland wilderness on the fringe of Amsterdam Agglomeration. As the site is subject to occasional flooding, the house is set upon an island-like wooden deck, leaving nature almost untouched. While facing the river with an austere waterfront façade, the house has a more private, sunny side inland.

The project site for this residence is a 7,500 sf cross slope lot in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles. The property is located near the top of a significant hill with panoramic views towards the Silver Lake Reservoir. The residence is situated at the rear of the property providing ample garden spaces at the front to buffer the exposure to the high traffic street. Due to the adjacency of neighboring properties, primary opportunities for open space occur toward the East and West, while views are primarily to the North within the parcel.

Cliff House in Kerala, India by Khosla Associates

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

Article source: Khosla Associates

The house is located in Chowara, a fishing village, 30 minutes from Thiruvananthapuram, in Kerala, South India.

Perched 200 ft. above an expansive stretch of green along the Arabian Sea coast, at the edge of a cliff, its most prominent feature is an asymmetrical sloping roof set against the fronds of a coconut plantation. Opening its embrace to the warm sea breezes, the home covers an area of 1397 sqm. A skewed 45m long sheer concrete wall supporting the single lightweight triangulated canopy roof lunges out towards the view. The external and internal finishes are polished cement, concrete and rough slate juxtaposed against warm slatted timber and naturallocal kotastone. Furniture and accessories are kept to a minimal, so that the focus doesn’t stray from the natural environment.

Block of Summer houses at Elounda, Crete by Kalliope Kontozoglou Architects

Saturday, May 3rd, 2014

Article source: Kalliope Kontozoglou Architects

On a steep hillside plot, with an amazing view of the Elounda bay and the Spinalongaisland, a complex of four groups of summerhouses of varying size (80-100 m2) was designed.

The concept was to organize the built volumes and the open spaces in-between like a piece of textile laid on the ground. The two are interwoven. In order to create enough diversity and excite the future owners’ interest four distinct types were created, which were multiplied by the use of different external colors, materials and orientation.
