House Y1 in Massif Central, France by Werner Sobek Group

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

Article source: Werner Sobek Group

The fully detached, 750 m² single-family home is located not far from the town of Yssingeaux in the Massif Central region of France. The ground floor of the house nestles against the slope. Although it has very few openings to the outside world, the interior rooms on this level are filled with natural light via the patio – a generously dimensioned glass-enclosed inner courtyard. The swimming pool, various guest rooms, the study and the owner‘s archive are situated on the ground floor, while the living quarters, dining area and bedrooms are all accommodated on the transparent top floor of the house. From the design of the patio to the diverse coalescing views and accessibility options, Y1 bonds with the landscape in every way.

Casa/Hotel | Kale@Cersaie 2016 in Bologna, Italy by Paolo Cesaretti Architetto

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Article source: Paolo Cesaretti Architetto

Like being in a life-size anagram. Many products with many different uses and little available space lead to a solution involving an abstract installation echoing different domestic and commercial spaces. Big lighting letters framed by a filtering black fabric mark the division between the spaces.

Casa 4.16.3 in Erechim, Brazil by Luciano Lerner Basso, architect

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Article source: Luciano Lerner Basso, architect

House 4.16.3 is located in the city of Erechim, in the countryside of Rio Grande do Sul, brazilian state, around 400 km from the state capital, Porto Alegre. The region has a subtropical climate, with warm, humid summers and chilly, rainy winters, which poses yet another challenge to the architect, in terms of habitability. Built on a terrain with a slope of twenty meters and several native plant species, the project sought to minimally alter the topography, proposing a building that lies on one of its highest parts and, from there on, develops sometimes accommodating itself on the natural profile and sometimes hovering over it.

Blake Residence in Melbourne, Australia by FINNEY CONSTRUCTIONS

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Article source: FINNEY CONSTRUCTIONS

This original 1970’s home was transformed into a striking modernist home totally unexpected in the more conservative Caulfield area.

A combination of Dado Render and Woodform Timber Batons on a curved wall creates the first impressions of this property, a far cry from the original façade that was dominated by a tin shed and a driveway.

A pivot door opens to the welcome area with curved walls that guide you to an impressive corridor with high ceilings and a gigantic view of the sky. All the doors off the corridor sit flushed against the wall, hung with pivot hinges and negative detailing surrounds. The bespoke timber circular door handles has an irresistible tactile quality that adds warmth to the space.

Shifter in Saguramo, Georgia by Stipfold

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Article source: Stipfold

The hillside house for a large family is gracefully flattened out on the landscape. The facade is simultaneously minimalistic and massive, marking the building’s modest and strong presence in nature. The multilayered open space in the backside of the house brings an inevitable sense of unexpectedness. The terraces in the garden with lounge areas and The playground carry a cosy vibe.

LE PLAN LIBRE in Taipei, Taiwan by Waterfrom Design

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Article source: Waterfrom Design

As the architect Mies Van der Rohe proposes “Skin and bones architecture”, we try to keep all structure expose with two long horizontal sliding windows. Except for providing the house a spacious view and ample sunlight, the exposed frame and glass blur the line between indoor and outdoor.

The cube extend from the facade is an intermediary space between indoor and outdoor. The stainless steel reflects the blue sky and merges the architecture with nature. On the roof garden, we designed a sink in the shape of giant milk box, which is toppled and sprinkled a pool of grass.

Ladrillo in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects 

Ladrillo (Spanish for ‘brick’) takes its cues from the Spanish Mission architectural style of the original Red Hill cottage. Utilising textured brick, recycled breezeblocks and original decorative plaster, this is architecture focused on textures – a fresh white palette not only unifies these textures, but also unites new and old. Punctuated by a central courtyard distinctly separating these spaces, the design maintains visual connections through the light, airy open architecture, which ultimately creates a beautiful backdrop for family life.
