Lockeport Beach House in Canada by Nova Tayona Architects

Friday, December 8th, 2017

Article source: v2com

Within a protected cove along the South Shore of Nova Scotia, at the end of a stretch of sand, a river empties out into the sea. Time and tides have created a one-kilometre forested sandbar on which this beach house lightly sits.

Despite its dramatic location on an expanse of shoreline, the clients also were drawn to the internal, cozy character of the site, and so, Lockeport Beach House is an oxymoron. Scraggly tamarack and spruce trees covered in Old Man’s Beard are very particular to some areas of Nova Scotia and thrive in the 10 cm of shallow soil here. The trees shelter the site from the openness of the beach, defend against sandbank erosion, and create a very specific sense of place.

House in Toyonaka, Japan by Tato Architects / Yo Shimada

Dynamic Abstractness

It is difficult to deal with architectural elements such as stairs and handrails that don’t have direct relation to the main architectural composition.

It might be my prejudice, but architectural space gradually becomes static, when additive elements are reduced to be abstract. It also has an effect on various human activities and furniture to vividly come to front, but sometimes it appears as if they are being denied.

Casa B+P in Itupeva, Brazil by Aresto Arquitetura

Friday, December 8th, 2017

Article source: Aresto Arquitetura

The single-floor residence project, developed in the city of Itupeva, had the challenge of meeting the proposal of a house that combines economy, constructive speed and comfort.

To save money, the first idea was to adapt the project to the existing topography. The lot has a very accented slope, and had some flat areas made by the previous owner.

G House in Reeuwijk, The Netherlands by Lab32 architecten

Friday, December 8th, 2017

Article source: Lab32 architecten

The villa is situated close to the waters of the Reeuwijkse Plassen in a dutch village consisting of not much more than a narrow through road lined predominantly by large, free-standing houses standing on ‘islands’ created by the drainage ditches of the former peatland.

The great attraction of this location lies in the vicinity of water and in the experience of this natural environment through the changing seasons. The villa’s completion represents the fulfilment of a long-held ambition of our clients, for whom a love of water has been an abiding theme of their lives.

Old Farmhouse in Munich, Germany by Peter Haimerl

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Article source: Peter Haimerl 

The oldest property in Alt-Riem. The farmhouse, consisting of a house and a stable, was built around 1750. In 2013 the Schusterbauerhaus still retained parts of the housing construction and remains of the stable. Two residential units were installed in this historic structure. The concept of the architect Peter Haimerl concept is based on two premises: retention of the historical building substance and at the same time the introduction of a spatial innovation. It connects the residential house and the stable using a spectacularly inserted concrete cube.

Narrow House in London, England by FORMstudio

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Article source: FORMstudio

The narrow deep plan of this tall terraced late 19th century building was ill-suited to its previous use as offices, with escape distances pre-determining the necessity for the centrally located lift and stair core that sub-divided the floor plate into small inflexible work spaces.

This configuration was, we recognised, ideally suited to the creation of residential space though, with naturally-lit rooms of domestic scale located to the front and rear, and support spaces located inboard around the retained central stairs and lift. A use further suggested by the domestic style of the Dutch-gabled brick front elevation.

House HC in Wondelgem, Belgium by Wim Heylen

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Article source: Wim Heylen

The terraced house is located in a housing project from ’58 in Wondelgem, Belgium. The project has the typical combination of identical row houses with alternately mirrored ground plans. All of them have a single-storey extension and a semi-private road at the back of the plot connecting the various garages and garden storages. Over the years many residents have filled up the open space between the extensions with verandas and secondary buildings, and by thus have lost relationship with the exterior space.
