Apartment For A Guy and Even Two of Them in Poznań, Poland by Grupa Metaforma

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

Article source: Grupa Metaforma

In this world everything is clear – a simple form, minimalistic colors selection, natural materials. This concept of design has been dictated by the male point of view from the very beginning.

The apartment was purchased in the fall and when the architects entered it, they noticed an exceptional view of the old trees in the neighborhood. Yellow, red and brown colors were the perfect background.

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

Article source: BAM! arquitectura

The MeMo house, which was built on a plot in San Isidro, in the northern part of the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina, was conceived on the premise of a client who is passionate about landscaping and has a strong conviction regarding sustainability and the environment. The premise was to develop a project in a plot between infill buildings while reducing to the maximum extent possible the loss of green spaces due to the construction of the house.

House in Hanareyama, Japan by Kidosaki Architects Studio

Friday, June 2nd, 2017

Article source: Kidosaki Architects Studio  

The surrounding of the site located at the foot of the Hanareyama, overlooking the landmark of the region in north orientation, shows the spread of the trees grown up in years. We tried to produce an architecture with the dignified presence, which has both free spirited and subtle quality- by placing a one-storied house maintaining a low building profile that dynamically extends in east and west orientation with sharply extending eaves on the building for exaggerating the horizontality against the surrounding landscape with bold yet delicate vertical quality.

Beach House in Victoria, Australia by DX Architects

Friday, June 2nd, 2017

Article source: DX Architects

The Blairgowrie Beach House on the Mornington Peninsula retained and altered the rear proportion of the existing building and expanded the dwelling forward on a steeply sloped site to accommodate additional living and sleeping areas. Manipulations of the building form were employed to address the access disconnect and setup a conceptual framework where we continued our practices interest in spatial division patterns. The new first floor incorporates a large cantilevered metal clad form which created a covered area for car parking, and was counteracted with concrete rendered vertical walls which pushed out to level out the land. Continuing formal manipulations, the metal clad form had volumes carved out to incorporate a balcony space, and a feature vertical window to illuminate at night and interact with the public realm when the house is being occupied.

La Casa del Bosque in Federal, Mexico by grupoarquitectura

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

Article source: grupoarquitectura

The house consists of two very geometric separate volumes of concrete, one for services and other for the principal areas of the house. The two bodies are joined using steel bridges with glass floor that do not touch the trees and the forest and seems that we walk on the vegetation.

The staircase is part of these bridges and neither touches the Forest, is completely blown from the house.

Glass Farmhouse in Oregon by Olson Kundig

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig

Surrounded by wheat fields on a high-altitude plateau stand a small glass house and a solid, traditional barn. The owners, inspired by Philip Johnson’s Glass House, wanted a refuge that opens up to the prairie and mountains. The structures are conveniently close to each other and enjoy a sense of isolation at the end of a long country road. The roof of the wood-frame barn, which houses farm equipment below and guest rooms above, was inspired by the local vernacular and is echoed in the shed roof of the glass house.

Delta Shelter in Washington, by Olson Kundig

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig

Delta Shelter – a 1,000 square-foot cabin – is essentially a steel-clad box on stilts that can be completely shuttered when the owner is away. The 200 square-foot footprint of the house rises above a 40-acre, 100-year flood plain adjacent to the Methow River. The verticality, coloring and raw nature of the materials used for construction directly respond to the wildness of the setting. The owner sought a compact, easy to maintain, virtually indestructible building to house himself and his friends for fun and adventure in the mountains. With an exterior of steel, the house is virtually indestructible.
