Article source: Drozdov&Partners

The plot is situated on the edge of a steep plateau and occupies the borderline position in the row of houses. This position invited a plentiful of interpretations of open and closed spaces.
One of the aims of this project was to create a harmonious interrelation between the house, the garden and the sea view. These three environments are placed each along its own line and they interact in a variety of ways, depending on the position of the observer.

This is the complex building with clinic on the first floor and the doctor’s dwelling place on the second floor. With the tree planting that bring better feeling to patients in the inner courtyard, they can be viewed from the lobby and entrance of the clinic. Furthermore, as the trees can also be seen from outside of the building through the deck, people walking by should also be able to feel the season’s change.

Strickland-Ferris Residence in Raleigh, North Carolina by Frank Harmon Architect PA

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

Article source: Frank Harmon Architect PA

The house was designed primarily for one person who had three specific requirements: (1) she wanted “something dramatic;” (2) She wanted to feel “as if I’m living in the trees;” and (3) she wanted the house to be utterly devoid of unnecessary ornamentation to the point that she could see the marks of construction, from exposed bolts to the “unfinished” ceiling structure.

House 784 in Cheshire, UK by Stephenson ISA STUDIO

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

Article source: Stephenson ISA STUDIO

The house is sited on a tree lined suburban road in Cheshire and was designed for a young family couple. On the road, the house types are suburban; conservative, bland and mock traditional. Our approach was to create a fresh contemporary version of the suburban house type; one that reacts to its context and is tailored to suit the specific needs of the client.
