House 669 in Stockholm, Sweden by HelgessonGonzaga Arkitekter

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

Article source: HelgessonGonzaga Arkitekter

“House 669” is an expression of the customers dream of getting their own house on a low budget and within a set fabrication process. The context is typical of many mid-sized Swedish towns contemporary development. The plot is prepared for fast and cost-effective construction of a catalogue house. Building your own home here normally comes down to the choice of a style. “House 669” lands in this context, neighbouring the neofunctional look and across the street a modern mansion sitting on a plot of 600 m2. It is a house built in collaboration with a local catalogue house manufacturer, but sustains the pursuit of living in an environment that supports the families everyday life, including work, play, social life and rest. The volume is archetypical, like a quick drawing of a house. 1 1/2 levels and open to the ridge, it provides a variety of spaces. By stripping away the standard materials (3-strip parquet, plasterboard ceilings, laminate window sills etc.) often found in catalogue houses, “House 669” achieve a more tactile material palette. Three coloured “islands” divide the ground floor which becomes the scene for social life, while structurally supporting the private rooms upstairs.

West Dune House in Fatima, Canada by Bourgeois / Lechasseur architects

Saturday, February 25th, 2017

Article source: v2com

This secondary house is located in the Magdalen Islands, facing West Dune and the sea. The clients are a retired couple that would like to spend a few months a year there.

The house was inspired by a formal exploration of sand models, seen at a Wallpaper Magazine exhibition in London. The volume measurement is inspired by local traditional architecture and by the natural shapes of wind-swept dunes. Due to its shape, the house looks as though it was sculpted out of a monolith of sand. The side walls follow the roof’s slope and extend to the edge of the deck to create an enjoyable space sheltered from the wind. The entrance is concealed in the reinforced side wall, providing protection from the weather.

Superhouse 00/30 in Illes Balears, Spain by Superhouse Property Group Ltd.

Saturday, February 25th, 2017

Article source: v2com

Superhouse is a brand and an ethos – a vision for what is possible in contemporary residential architecture. Superhouse want to create nothing but the 30 most exceptional houses in the world for the super-rich.

Superhouse has been created by Magnus Ström, founder of Ström Architects, based on the South coast of England. Inspiration for the Superhouse concept first came when Ström worked next to a world-renowned naval architect. This was when Superyachts were first brought to his attention, and it raised the questions: “Why couldn’t houses also reach the same heights of design quality and workmanship?” and “Why do ‘Superyachts’ exist, but ‘Superhouses’ don’t?”

46H in Toronto, Canada by baukultur/ca

Saturday, February 25th, 2017

Article source: v2com

Toronto-based development company baukultur/ca just recently completed the transformation of a 110-year-old house into a contemporary, highly sustainable home and, even though strictly modern, its exterior complements the traditional Beaches neighbourhood.

The four level residence is one of the few houses in Toronto designed to minimize the carbon footprint, and its specific use of materials and finishes reduces future maintenance as well as supports the sustainable approach even further. Even though it is built to sell in a market just about to become aware of sustainability and its benefits for both the city as well as the homeowner, baukultur/ca took the opportunity and, at the same time, the risk to construct a home that not only enhance the immediate environment but also would establish new standards in design and energy efficient green building.

MA House in Morelos, México by Cadaval & Sola-Morales

Friday, February 24th, 2017

Article source: Cadaval & Sola-Morales

The commission of the house comes together with the explicit petition to use stone as the main construction material. The decision doesn’t respond necessarily to esthetic reasons but more likely to its common existence in the place, its little need for maintenance and its low cost for built square meter. Such premises are taken as a project challenge both in a structural, typological and esthetic way.

Memory House in Lima, Perú by Chetecortes Architects

Friday, February 24th, 2017

Article source: Chetecortes Architects

When I say Beach, we can quickly see the blue of the sea under a clear sky, next to the warm sand, bathed in an intense yellow light that illuminates the day. The relaxing sound of the waves begins to whisper our ears, while our body begins to perceive a refreshing temperature, the wind passing.

We create the house, understanding first the reaction of the people to the previous text.
