Roof and Rectangular House in Tomakomai, Japan by Jun Igarashi Architects

Sunday, September 17th, 2017

Article source: Jun Igarashi Architects

I keep on design activities in Hokkaido, so most of my projects ran there. By designing in a remarkably cold, I continued thinking on response to completely different contexts from other areas. They are mainly “cold” and “snow”. Of course there are other various things to deal with, but these contexts have the great impact. In this state, I felt the possibility of “a windbreak room” and thought about the expansion and diversity.

Palm Beach Project in Sydney, Australia by Alexander&Co

Sunday, September 17th, 2017

Article source: Alexander&Co

Palm Beach House project is the transformation of an existing waterfront holiday villa in Palm Beach, Sydney. The project is a restrained approach to a traditional European vernacular, exploring bespoke quality detailing, materiality and architectural framing.

With the existing house ineffectively dealing with scale limitations, the brief was primarily to explore how we could reintroduce a higher quality of spatial resolution. The plans and volumes were subsequently rationalized around better circulation, view corridors and access to the water.

Box House in Singapore by Ming Architects

Friday, September 15th, 2017

Article source: Ming Architects

The whitewashed boxy architecture stands out conspicuously along a street of nondescript houses, differentiating itself from the neighbors with its clean white façade with precise edges. Home to a floriculture enthusiast and her family, this house sets out to fulfill the brief of amalgamating both quality living spaces and ample outdoor areas all around the house.

House Embracing Sky in Seoul, Korea by ArchiWorkshop

Friday, September 15th, 2017

Article source: ArchiWorkshop 

“House Embracing Sky” is the second residential project by Archiworkshop in MangWoo district in Seoul.

It was built on a site, which has land area of 108.9. The border of the site was invading to and by its neighbors’ building, and the road for construction was not completely secured. Allowing building coverage ratio of the site 50%, there was only 56m2 to build. We had a thorough consideration on various issues, such as maximizing building coverage ratio, minimizing any problem with neighbors and their lands, rational application of architectural slant line restriction for daylight, etc. Due to building code, inclined facade was formed. The inclined facade has issues of getting polluted due to dust storm and air pollution. At the beginning, we tried to hide this slope but then we switch our thought and developed to an idea ‘what if this can be well appeared in different way?’. The inclined facade turned into a mirror Facade, which embraces sky and capture a change of the scenery while the mirror mass is unrecognizable and disappears. The rough surface of black brick facade and smooth mirror facade gives a great contrast. The shaded portion of the black mirror captures the sky and such reflection can been seen by publics on the ground floor. The mass with one side slash might have been the biggest concern at the beginning, but it became the signature of the building.

Eira House in Vale de Cambra, Portugal by AR Studio Architects

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

Article source: AR Studio Architects 

Located in the city of Vale de Cambra, the Casa da Eira (literally “The House of the threshing-floor”) was a rehabilitation challenge with about 400m2 of construction.

A century-old house that was very degraded and needed a major overhaul, that would revive the memory of the original design without forgetting the current needs. The owner wanted a residence where he could have a traditional and familiar setting, not forgetting its irreverent and creative side. A place where friends are always welcome.

The Pool House in Randwick New South Wales, Australian by Luigi Rosselli Pty Ltd – Architects

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

Article source: Luigi Rosselli Pty Ltd – Architects

The wraparound swimming pool plays the starring role in these alterations and additions and becomes the architectural pivot that binds one hundred years of history.

The organic two-storey addition at the back of a single storey 1910 cottage is surrounded by a swimming pool and the water is the focus that holds the two distinct sections of the house together.

Gokturk 118 in Eyup Istanbul by CM Mimarlik

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

Article source: CM Mimarlik

This Project was designed as two separated blocks located on adjacent plots with different regulations, merging to a corner. The two blocks with different heights 12.5 m and 15.50 m, has been unified regarding their facade clearances. Within the evolving facade of the Çamlık Street in the last 10 year, these blocks were injected with a cynic eccentricity to the existing pattern. The form emerges from the meeting of the two separately perceived prisms. The entrance of the blocks is from the Sedef Street perpendicular to the Çamlık Street and both blocks are connected from this entrance.

HOUSE B in Zagreb, Croatia by SODAarhitekti

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

Article source: SODAarhitekti 

Parcela The plot for the construction of a family house is situated on the slopes of Medvednica, in the northwestern part of the city. The terrain is an ideal south-facing slope. The house is located in the longitudinal west-east direction, in order to maximize the benefits od of the south orientation and to allow a view of the city from the entire house. It is designed with a simple gesture of pulling the upper floor volume in a relation to the ground floor volume. This formed two valuable outer spaces as a functional extension of interior of the house – the entrance to the parking lots, which covers the console to the west, and a terrace with a roof garden for parents in the east. Cantelevered space can be used as a covered dining terrace. The ground floor has a living room, dining room and kitchen, the upper floor consists of sleeping spaces, and the basement is the utilitarian floor. The organization of the house is done around the centrally placed two-storey living room, which is vertically connected with the upper floor gallery, with dining area and the kitchen on the same level and with the exterior through the large glass walls. Gallery serves as a horizontal connection between parental bedroom and children’s rooms and as a playroom. Large windows oriented to the south allow the decline of winter sun rays deep into the house and make passive heating possible. Duplex living room accumulates heat and distributes it to other areas of the house. In the summer, the house is protected from the sun with a pergola and movable blinds.

Casa SFA in Torreón, Mexico by Arqmov Workshop

Monday, September 11th, 2017

Article source: Arqmov Workshop

The SFA house is a refurbishment project that is faithful to the client’s specific requirements. Arqmov Workshop initially suggested a brand new project, given the previous (quite unfortunate) refurbishment work on the property. However, the nostalgia of its owner led the firm to reconsider adapting his childhood home to suit his new family – with a wife and three children. Given more than 30 years since the construction of the house, the decision was made to strip its original structure bare, to use the house’s spatial potential and to take advantage of its location opposite to a golf course. The dividing floor of the residence was demolished to create a large double height volume with large windows to the rear and interior facade to the garden and the swimming pool. Due to the importance placed on light intake in this project, a void was opened on the wall supporting the stairs towards the bar area through which a shaft of light pierces the space.
