PRIVATE HOUSE in GULF OF ST, TROPEZ, France by Bumper Investments

Sunday, September 8th, 2013

Article source: Bumper Investments

“PRIVATE HOUSE” is a large family home situated in Beauvallon, in the Gulf of St. Tropez on the French Cote d’Azur. Stylistically the modern concrete, glass and steel construction is the first of its kind in the area, marking a new generation of design in a region rich with tradition. Bumper Investments, the developers, envisioned an aesthetic and sensorial link between the edifice and the surrounding nature and garden. Corresponding to the natural topographical setting, the maximum height of the elevation reaches just above the treetops, impressing on the inhabitant ideals of being at one with the surrounding wildlife.

House in Mosteiro, PORTUGAL by Arquitectos Matos

Saturday, September 7th, 2013

Article source: Arquitectos Matos

The site is located on the outskirts of Santa Maria da Feira, surrounded by a diffuse and changing landscape.

The concept of the project comes from the combined interpretation of the functional program of a single-family house with the specific premises of the clients, as from the study of the characteristics of the lot and its surroundings and morphological conditions.

The house is organized in a single floor around a central courtyard, facing South and West, protected from the street on the North side.

Bronte House by Rolf Ockert Design

Saturday, September 7th, 2013

Article source: Rolf Ockert Design

The client approached us to create house of their dreams on a site perched high over the Pacific Ocean, a home that was to make them feel like being on holiday every day. While the view was fantastic the site was very small and suffocated by overbearing neighbouring dwellings.

The finished house, though, feels generous and as if it is alone with the ocean and the sky.

Being tightly restricted by site conditions there were only two avenues we could take to create generosity of space and location:

Firstly the surprising height of the living room space that takes advantage of the only extravagant spatial dimension available to us.

Acoustic Alchemy in 14 Crowhurst Drive by hyla architects

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

Article source: hyla architects

The living, dining and kitchen areas of this 2-storey semi-detached house have been designed as one large AV and entertainment space, efficiently soundproofed by double glazed sliding-folding doors. The two side walls that flank this space were intentionally built to taper towards the rear.
This creates a slightly funnelled space that not only enhances the acoustic qualities of the room but also enables storage niches along the thicker ends of the walls to house hi-fi equipment.

CASA PETRINI VILLANI IN Polignano a Mare, Bari, Italy BY arch. Antonella MARI

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

Article source: arch. Antonella MARI

The house for a psychologist, a nurse and their young daughter is designed as the extension of an existing one-floor building in the historic center of Polignano a Mare, in southern Italy. While the old tufo facade remains almost unmodified, the new volume above is clearly defined through the use of lighter materials: a double skin system – made of  glass/aluminum large windows screened by steel and wood retractable panels – allows natural light in, while preventing heating.
