White Cave House in Kanazawa by Takuro Yamamoto Architects

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

Article source: Takuro Yamamoto Architects 

White Cave House is a massive lump engraved by a series of voids interconnected in the shape of a kinked tube. The connection of voids – we call it Cave – is the theme of this house. Internal rooms are designed to enjoy the minimum views of Cave characterized by its whiteness. At the same time, this concept is also the practical solution to realize a courtyard house in Kanazawa city known for heavy snow in Japan.

C-house in Cleveland, Ohio by Robert Maschke Architects

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

Article source: Robert Maschke Architects

C-House is one of three urban villas comprising the Residences of King’s Hill, a unique residential development located on Cleveland’s near west side. Despite being situated within the urban context of the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood, this “virgin” site provides an idyllic enclave within a park-like setting, adjacent to the site’s eastern and southern boundaries. Uninterrupted views of Lake Erie, Cleveland’s downtown and industrial flats, as well as the site’s proximity to a busy vehicular thoroughfare reconnect the site to its urban environment.

G HOUSE in Como, Italy by Lorenzo Guzzini

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

Article source: Lorenzo Guzzini 

The idea of the project is to value an abandoned villa from 19th century in Como, through an architectural re-elaboration of the owners’ s memories.

The family that live into this house is from a central region of Italy, Marche and they used to live among the medieval villages made in bricks. For them construction means matter, bulk and static.

SUNLIGHTHOUSE in Pressbaum, Austria by juri troy architects

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

Article source: juri troy architects

The Velux Sunlighthouse in Pressbaum near Vienna is the first co²-neutral single-family-house in Austria.

The challenge was to create a house that taps the full potential of the plot on the one hand and to develop an energy and ecology concept that would erase the ecological footprint of the house within the next thirty years on the other hand. What distinguishes this project from many ambitious preceding projects is the aim to combine minimized numerical values for energy efficiency with ambitious architecture in spite of an all but ideal plot.

HOUSE WIND in Jalisco, México by Agraz Arquitectos

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

Article source: Agraz Arquitectos

Every project has a connotation that makes it different, unique and unrepeatable. The Wind House has two unusual features, the first one is that it is in a suburb that has not been built yet, having no neighbors whatsoever, and it faces the stunning Primavera Woods. The other one is it’s calling to be a house where kids will grow, the youngest a newborn and the eldest only four years old. And this is doubtlessly the real job, to create the scenery where this kid’s childhood will take place, and therefore several aspects are handled differently.

CARRBORO HOUSE in North Carolina by CUBE design + research

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

Article source: CUBE design + research

The client asked us to create a home that was modern, green, affordable, and designed for aging. The property is a beautifully wooded half-acre lot in Carrboro. We responded with single-level living that builds in accessibility clearances and easily adapted amenities for aging. To keep the home affordable, we kept the plan compact and simplified the details. The form and planning of the house shift to mediate privacy from neighbors and views of nature at every turn.

CONVERTIBLE COURTYARDS HOUSE in Victoria, Australia by Christopher Megowan Design

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

Article source: Christopher Megowan Design

As the name suggests, the Convertible Courtyards House, Christopher Megowan Design, kinetically adapts to the notoriously variable climate found in Melbourne, Australia. This project added a kitchen, living area, dining area, bathroom, master bedroom, ensuite and two decks to a previously overlooked yet charming weatherboard cottage in the inner urban suburb of Prahran. Nestled on an intimate street, the existing house is one of a series of heritage protected cottages.
