Light Walls House in Toyokawa, Japan by mA-style architects

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

Article source: mA-style architects

The site is in a shady location where a two-story neighboring house closely stands on the south side, and even the shade and shadow on the path intensify the impression of darkness. Therefore, the design intended to create a space with uniformly distributed light by adjusting the way of letting daylight in, and the way of directing the light. By taking into consideration the space for the residents, the functions for living, and the relationship with the surrounding environment, creation of a diversity and richness in the house was intended by controlling the concept of light.

80 Housings units in Bordeaux, France by Nicolas Laisné Architecte Urbaniste

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

Article source: Nicolas Laisné Architecte Urbaniste

This project, located in the new Berge du Lac area in Bordeaux, includes four collective buildings and ten individual houses which form a block.

The dark shades and unbalanced silhouettes of the three tallest structures echo the tramway. On the other side, the individual houses and a building, covered in wood, are erected along the side of a linear park. Each of these architectural choices responds to the particular circumstances of these buildings.

SLASH in Chiba, Japan by APOLLO Architects & Associates

Saturday, September 21st, 2013

Article source: APOLLO Architects & Associates

This house stands in a nature park with an ocean view, and a mountain behind it. It was designed as a weekend house for the owner to relax while enjoying sunset views. The site is along a busy road. Therefore, the problems of noise and privacy were solved by making enough distance between the road and the building, and by using a reinforced concrete structure facade with minimal openings.

House in Pedrogão, Torres Novas, Portugal by Paulo Henrique Durão

Friday, September 20th, 2013

Article source: Paulo Henrique Durão

BELOW GROUND, ABOVE AIR

I take Saramago once again: “My relation with time is, above all, very specific….when trying to express it graphically; I understand time as a large screen, a huge screen, where every single event is projected, including the oldest and the most recent. On that screen, everything is side by side in a kind of chaos as if time was compressed and flattened on that surface; as if events, facts and people were shown and assembled chaotically instead of being diachronically assembled, and we were meant to find a meaning.” (1)

Ghose House in Thallagapura, Bangalore by Gaurav Roy Choudhury Architects

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

Article source: Gaurav Roy Choudhury Architects

The Ghose Residence sits on the outskirts of a burgeoning Bangalore. It looks over a valley which once was a lake, and will soon become embroiled in construction activity.

The Ghose Residence sits pretty on a rocky hill, with ‘private’ greenery all reveling in the ‘new urban home’; one which opens up to recoil, welcomes to fend off, and builds to sustain. The dichotomy of our escapist urban premise is not lost on it.

HOUSE IN Monticelli Brusati, Italy by Studio Artec

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

Article source: Studio Artec

We like thinking about this house as a transposition on our territory of a Californian Case Study House of the 1950s and 60s. The structure is of course adapted to the local climate and landscape, but the spirit that generated this design is that of simplicity and of being self-confident with the place as it had been for those so famous houses.

10x10x10 House in Leidsche Rijn by 123DV

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

Article source: 123DV

Cube island is a suburb in Leidsche Rijn (the centre of the Netherlands) where all the houses are designed as cubes.
The idea behind the 10x10x10 House is to create maximum spacious experience within a simple cube shape.
The floorplan of three stories is divided in a narrow long zone of 2,5 x 9,5 meters and a wide zone of 6,5 x 9,5 meters. This results in outspoken places: intimate spaces for bathing and lofty spaces for living and sleeping.

NATURALMENTE CHIC in Treviso, Italy by Daniele Menichini

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

Article source: Daniele Menichini

Ospitalità diffusa is the all-Italian concept which is gaining more and more attention within the ultimate frontiers of the hospitality industry: it mainly revolves around the revamping of existing buildings peppered across the countryside or located in small villages. A concept which has long been conceived differently by other countries. This new interpretation is right where the project GREEN_ZERO has its roots: a new modular housing devoted to the accommodation sector; a suite entrenched in a sustainable shell to be installed in the woods, at seaside, in the heart of the countryside, or wherever the landscape permits.
