Quebrada house in Santiago Metropolitan Region, Chile
 by UNarquitectura


Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

Article source: UNarquitectura


The request was to build a tree house…

Located on the creek, elevated by pilotis, it is accessible through a bridge and has views at the level of the foliage of trees.

The house “breaks” adapting to the slope and differentiating the private and public space within a single enclosure. It also captures the views of the forrest and the sky.

Oakley House by Benjamin Waechter, Architect

A pre-existing 28’ x 28’ foundation was used as a starting point for the Oakley House. Using this footprint constraint, the house was built anew on top of this existing foundation. To accommodate 4 bedrooms the second story cantilevers out in the front and back of the house, providing the upstairs with adequate room while simultaneously creating covered outdoor space on both ends. From the side elevation, the house profile takes on the form of a “T.”

KVS HOUSE in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Estudio Galera

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

Article source: Estudio Galera

The lot is situated in Costa Esmeralda, a new private venture in Costa County. A small pine grove at the front of the site, and a steep slope down from the street to the back of the lot. A simple but paramount commission: to focus the program on the smallest portion of the lot as possible, since most of the natural landscape of the lot wants to be preserved. A vacation home thought for a family that wants to use the house for a variety of purposes, such as getting together and enjoying open air activities. The program is centered around two boxes stacked, skewed, balancing each other on top of a half buried stone plinth. As a result, the program takes less than twelve percent of the lot, leaving enough space for a swimming pool and a green dune –part of the landscape.

The House for Seven People

The original house was built 37 years ago with a mixed structure; steel on the ground floor and timber on the first floor. Since its original construction in 1977, the site around the house has dramatically changed. The two-story house is now surrounded by 7-9 story buildings in an area known as the “Urban Village“, which lies between Yamate-Dori and Megro River – a three minute walk from Fudomae Metro Station in Tokyo.

Article source: Benjamin Waechter, Architect

SIX ROOMS 
The Z-Haus consists of two attached row houses constructed on a 50’ x 100’ urban infill lot. The strategy was to build up rather than out to maximize outdoor living space and minimize building footprint. Each house is made up of 6 rooms that are offset at every half story and smoothly joined by a series of half flight stairs.

Alkhozama Desert House in Riyadh Desert, Saudi Arabia by Ark-Kassam Architects

Saturday, March 15th, 2014

Article source: Ark-Kassam Architects

Ark-Kassam Architects have created a contemporary residence design concept which is to be allocated on a knoll in the middle of a private Oasis palm, Al-Riyadh Desert.

Three Masses are forming the design of the house and defining the entry lobby with the Arcade courtyard and the interior garden. These volumes are the Service Mass, Living Mass with sunset view and Night Mass with sunrise view. All masses were organized in order to provide the needed shade for one another, creating the different atmospheric scales in between the indoor and the outdoor space protecting the house from extreme weather conditions.
