Kilham House in Winchester, U. K by AR Design Studio

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

Article source: AR Design Studio

Nestled along a leafy lane on the outskirts of Winchester sits Kilham House. Once a tired building with a confusing layout, the house now boasts a contemporary update that really transforms the house into the five-bedroomed family home that it desperately needed to be. A grand, double-height entrance guides you into the building, immediately bringing you into the heart of the home which has now been become the main living space for the family. A large expanse of sliding glazing gives views into the garden, allowing the three children to run wild whilst the parents can relax in the central space and still keep a watchful eye.

White or visible light can be split into monochromatic beams of light by passing it through an obstacle that forces the different waves which make up white light to travel at different speeds. This is the concept from which this small building developed.

Coral House in Veracruz, México by Gerardo Ars Arquitectura

Friday, July 25th, 2014

Article source: Gerardo Ars Arquitectura

The essence of the house was to reflect the identity cheerful and festive of the client, and to show their close relationship with their roots and culture. The result, a house that is distinct in the neighborhood with overwhelming personality.

Located in a densely populated neighborhood of the city and surrounded by homes without architectural design, this project breaks the monotony of the site, give a new twist to the neighborhood and promote the interest of its inhabitants to explore a different, innovative architecture.

Touguinhó II House in Vila do Conde, Portugal by Raulino SILVA ARCHITECT, Lda

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

If we climb through the narrow streets to the place called \”hill\” of the village Touguinhó, we can observe the sea from afar, near the town of Vila do Conde.

The implantation of the house took into account the local landscape and a significant slope of the terrain.

4 Springs Lane in Rappahannock County, VA by Robert M. Gurney, FAIA Architect

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

Article source: Robert M. Gurney, FAIA Architect 

Rolling topography, open fields and woodlands comprise a 24 acre site in Rappahannock County, Virginia where this new house is located. Extensive site investigation, including erecting scaffolding at various locations, resulted in the placement of the house high on one of the hills, overlooking a meadow at the base of woodlands.  The house is organized as a series of volumes, arranged linearly and positioned to optimize distant views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
