Casa Baladrar in Benissa, Alicante by Langarita-Navarro Arquitectos

Saturday, February 22nd, 2014

Article source: Langarita-Navarro Arquitectos

The scattered and trans-European city that the mountainous coast of Alicante has become, houses a heterogeneous population that is drawn to the sun, the sea, the temperate climate, the convenient public services and the leafy greenery. The promise of relaxing and hedonistic experiences captivates both seasonal tourists and long-term residents who see their expectations fulfilled amongst jasmine and bougainvilleas. The project draws from this context and is designed to meet the demands of multiple families in the summertime and as a haven for retirees the rest of the year.

House in the woods near King’s Forest in Potsdam (near Berlin), Germany by claim

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Article source: claim

Small spaciousness

The house in the woods is a residence for a couple and their guests. Despite the very limited area available for construction and the users’ requirements regarding the number of beds and rooms, a residence with a perceptible spaciousness arose. Starting from the ‘bungalow’ stereotype, the design sets openness against seclusion, introduces smooth transitions in contrast to set boundaries, emphasizes the correlation of surface and volume and, in this way, overlays the familiar with the new.

OFFICE & HOUSE LUNA in Buenos Aires, Argentina by estudio HMA

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Article source: HM.Arquitectos 

The project is located in the southern part of the city of Buenos Aires, precisely in Parque Patricios, a neighborhood that is being promoted as a technological pole. This characteristic motivated the client to start the construction of a building that unfolds into two separate volumes, his home and an office for his business. Both buildings have in common constructive and material decisions, however they show a strong formal contrast. In addition, the two volumes meet sustainable conditions: ventilated facades, reuse of rainwater and FCS certified wood ( OSB ).

Casa Flotanta in Puntarenas, Costa Rica by Benjamin Garcia Saxe Architecture

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

Article source: Benjamin Garcia Saxe Architecture

The Gooden-Na home family wanted to create a home on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica and they found an incredible site overlooking the ocean. The biggest challenge we encountered was that their plot of land was predominantly comprised of a very steep slope, and the view of the ocean could only be seen from the upper-mid portion of the site. We saw this as an opportunity rather than a constraint and immediately considered an architectural response that was appropriate for these conditions.

Refugium by a staircase in Lake Vättern, Closeto Omberg by Petra Gipp Arkitektur

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

Article source: Petra Gipp Arkitektur

The promenade begins at the entrance to the house, continues through the volume and leads on down to the water. A column of light, through the roof, allows the light of the sky to flow down the concrete wall that goes straight through the building.  A wall that embraces the stairs and allows for a fireplace at the edge of the cliff.

Jellyfish House in Marbella, Spain by Wiel Arets Architects

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

Article source: Wiel Arets Architects

Located in Marbella, on the Mediterranean coast of Spain, the Jellyfish House’s neighboring buildings block its view onto the nearby sea. Appropriately, it was chosen to cantilever the house’s pool from its roof, so that the beach and sea can always be seen while sunbathing or swimming. The house is organized around two paths of circulation: a ‘fast’ and ‘slow’ set of stairs, which intertwine and traverse the house’s four levels of living.

Southern Highlands House in NSW, Australia by Benn & Penna Architects

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

Article source: Benn & Penna Architects

“A tiny house, like a tiny temple, can be a perfect work of art” – Marion Mahony Griffin

The design is for a new home-office pavilion alongside two existing pavilions on a remote rural property three hours drive south of Sydney. The new building is part of a set of three free standing pavilions that each contain the functions of sleeping, living and working – a configuration reflecting a harmonious life-cycle balance that is interwoven into its natural environment.
