UV house in Italy by OASI architects

Thursday, January 1st, 2015

Article source: OASI architects

UV house is an project for a young couple, conversion of an old industrial building into a modern urban villa.

The client asked to create a new floor for bedrooms inside the shape of the actual building. Our aim was to preserve the power of the void that space suggested to us.

The concept was simple: a floating slab set into the existing walls that keeps the huge void under it. We made it in concrete.

Casa Francavilla in Modica, Italy by Studio GUM

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014

Article source:  Studio GUM

Modica, like other historical centers of the Val di Noto, owes its special urban configuration to the uncommon nature of the area, combined with the various phenomena of human activity. Many of the homes found in the old part of town are attached homes, and are often an extension to the ancient caves, inhabited since prehistoric times.

This project has begun as a dream of a young and active family. We tried our best to provide a solution for a project that wanted to be more than a house, a home that offers it’s owners the capacity to disconnect from the busy lifestyle of a big city. Situated in close vicinity of the city Cluj-Napoca, the house uses common architectural elements that intersect with clear accents of modernity.

BALINT HOUSE in VALENCIA, SPAIN by FRAN SILVESTRE ARQUITECTOS

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014

Article source:  FRAN SILVESTRE ARQUITECTOS

A privileged place within a golf course near to Valencia is the starting point of this project.

The proposal is drawn with elliptical traces which contain the program and maximize the possibilities of local urban law by minimizing the volumetric impact on the site. Thus, a piece with a continuous façade that seems to lodge only one floor is set on the site. The aerodynamic visuals of it guide the eye towards the deepness of the neighbouring landscape.

Casa MM in Jalisco, México by ELÍAS RIZO ARQUITECTOS

Saturday, December 20th, 2014

Article source: ELÍAS RIZO ARQUITECTOS

Casa MM Casa presented an unusual challenge for us. Two brothers who owned a considerable stretch of land in Tapalpa approached us with the intention of building two separate houses. As we dug into the project’s needs we realized that both of our clients had similar needs and while they didn’t mind, and in fact preferred, that the houses share a common language, each one had to convey its own singular personality. The topography of the site imposed its own set of variables that resulted in further slight alterations in the design of each house.

Aviator’s Villa in Duchess County, New York by Urban Office Architecture

Saturday, December 20th, 2014

Article source: Urban Office Architecture

This project explores the idea of flight as a powerful motivator for architectural darings.

The house, designed for a retired Pilot, the Aviator, is organized as an analogical continuum of dis-assembled flight components. Similarly to how the “Air Body” wraps an airplane all around, and completely, so is the House “exposed” to air on all its sides, in an orbital fashion.

Fernando House in Moratuwa, Sri Lanka by D plus architects

Saturday, December 20th, 2014

Article source: D plus architects

This house is located in a sub-urban area 1.5Km from Moratuwa City. Foot print is about 4200 sq.ft.

‘Court Yard House’ Residence for Fernando Family at Moratuwa

IT is a strong belief of the architect; that architecture is there to capture the ‘moods’…. ‘Moods’ that are pronounced by the lifestyle of the users of space; ‘moods’ that are dictated by the surroundings on which the building is to be erected… ‘Moods’ that last the lifespan of the building. Thus the design defies the boundaries of ‘modern’ and ‘traditional’; and instead concentrates on a language to reflect the ‘real’ ‘moods’ noticed by the architect, on their merits.
