A rural house romance

Rural houses, or farmhouses are easily seen around countryside. However, these artificial forms are being placed here and there thoughtlessly in Mother Nature.A common stereotyped rural houses around Namhae, Jindo, and Pyeongchang have set a scenery of 20th century’s Korean farm village. One might say, the system of a local constructor also being a designer also being a constructor is extremely economical in terms of building rural houses. However, mother nature we have is too nice to only covered with identically produced rural houses.

Modern Drama by Ginkgo House Architecture

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Article source: Ginkgo House Architecture

This project began as a more modest kitchen remodel. But the temptation to bring light deeper into the room and maximize dramatic views could not be denied. Half of the roof is pitched to allow for a clerestory band of windows. Other features include a two-sided ribbon fireplace, a 16′ sliding patio door, and a European style kitchen.

16 Social Housing for Granollers Town Hall in Barcelona, Spain by ONL Arquitectura

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Article source:

The architectural strategy used has been to create a building whose exterior is defined by a language that seeks abstraction through colour, rhythm, and movement: a language that will contrast with the domestic private life of the residents inside. To combine these two concepts moveable panels have been mounted on the façades. By opening or closing them, residents can choose the level of light or privacy they want at any time throughout the year.

Article source: Gianluca Milesi Architecture

This is a project for a single house-villa placed in a natural imaginary environment. The aim of the design is to create an intimate space strongly communicating with the external environment at the same time. This communication and particular relationship is established through the creation of cracks in a simple box volume that break the enclosure of the interior space and open, visually and physically to the outside.

Housing in Valdemorillo, Spain by Otto Medem Arquitectura

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

Article source: Otto Medem Arquitectura

The project is commissioned by a couple of journalists who seek peace on the outskirts of the city. The house is broken into 3 volumes to suit the rugged topography of the land. The pieces are positioned to find the best views of the mountains and take in the serenity. Solar positioning was also considered with the placement of each room, depending on its designated use. The union of these 3 parts is established through the connection of their facades, with bands that cross and give expression to the project.

CASA ZR in San Luis Potosi, México by TaAG Arquitectura

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

Article source: TaAG Arquitectura

The project comes on the first \”closed\” residential subdivision in San Luis Potosi City, with regulations very oppressive and contradictory, where a colonial Mexican style is required (with all complications and possible interpretations of the theme)
The challenge was to get a house with a ‘contemporary’ language despite the regulation that was designed to build houses with the classical typologies of the eighties.
