WAIATARUA HOUSE in AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND by Monk Mackenzie

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

Article source: Monk Mackenzie

The brief was for a new house on a challenging, steep site in a bush clad creek gully. One of the design challenges was to insert a bold intervention into a sensitive bush reserve whilst still maintaining a sense of modesty and poetic.

The house was designed for a couple in their mid-sixties who had always wanted a house surrounded by nature though not far removed from city life – a place or respite from the speed of city life.

WEIN HOUSE in Buenos Aires, Argentina by BESONIAS ALMEIDA arquitectos

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

Article source: BESONIAS ALMEIDA arquitectos

The place

Costa Esmeralda is a real estate development over the dunes on the coast, 390 km from Buenos Aires. This is a recent urban development with young acacias and pines forestation and some sectors of consolidated forest.

The lot to intervene is a high rise dune with the peculiarity of having in part aged woods and also a recent pine plantation, although undoubtedly its most prominent feature is the abruptness of its relief. Between the access road and the highest sector of the lot, located approx. in the plot center, there is a height difference of 12 m, so that in order to access to it is necessary to ascend a slope of more than 45 °.

House with Podocarpus in Osaka, Japan by MIFUNE DESIGN STUDIO

Saturday, June 7th, 2014

Article source: MIFUNE DESIGN STUDIO

There has been a symbolic podocarpus tree in the premises since the old days. It used to be a little away from the human space and was not seen from the room in a daily life. For this new construction due to deterioration, the tree was left where it was to strengthen the relation between human and the tree by building a new position and new traffic line. By creating minimum surrounding with new round fence for the tree, form and existence of the tree are maximized.

HAUS F by FINCKH ARCHITEKTEN BDA

Thursday, June 5th, 2014

Article source: FINCKH ARCHITEKTEN BDA

“the slim, long building with its smooth, specular surfaces widens the site. material, light and transparency create wide and open spaces”

The building is located on a south-hillside above esslingen am neckar within a grown residential area. the extremely slim and sloping land has since been used as a driveway road and was considered unbuildable. the just 4,70m wide and 14m long  building pushes out of the long, slim body between the neighboring houses into the hillside.

A2 House in Siena, Italy by VPS Architetti

Thursday, June 5th, 2014

Article source: VPS Architetti

The property is located near Castelmuzio, a small medieval hamlet in the Val D’Orcia region near the Renaissance town of Pienza. The Pieve (Church) of Santo Stefano in Cennano is located to the west of Castelmuzio along the Pieve country road.

The church was constructed on a sacred Etruscan site, evidenced by the many graves, urns and inscriptions unearthed in the area. The site later became a pagan temple and finally a Christian church, located along an important medieval pilgrimage route and rebuilt in the Romanesque style in the second half of the 12th century. The three apses have survived while the interior is now a single nave. The Parish declined in the 14th and 15th centuries until it was completely abandoned. The church was restored in more recent times.

The Garden House in London, UK by Space Group of Architects Ltd

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

Article source: Space Group of Architects Ltd

This is a refurbishment and extension of an existing terraced house in North London.

The aim of the project is to extend the kitchen/dining area by infilling a currently under-used space to the side of the property. A minimal framed skylight shall provide good natural daylight from above in addition to vertically glazed surfaces. In addition to that we propose to extend the area by three meters into the garden repeating the same design principles allowing for extra space that also enhances the design ideas.

Skyward House in Uenohara, Yamanashi, Japan by acaa

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

Article source: acaa

Houses built on a highland overlooking mountains in the south. While each housing unit is sufficiently large for a single woman, specific parts inside are compact, thus creating both a feeling of security and a sense of openness. More specifically, two opposite kinds of space coexist in each housing unit. The first kind is the open “exterior room” with a wide opening, whereas the second type is the closed “interior room” with no window facing outside.
