“Los Álamos de Fuentecisneros” Block of 59 houses in Madrid, Spain by Otto Medem Arquitectura S.L.

Sunday, February 19th, 2017

Article source: Otto Medem Arquitectura S.L.

As the architect, from the begining of the project, I set out the following main goals:

Make the most of the characteristics of the terrain and enhance them by choosing the perfect orientation.

Design a set of housing complex that escapes from the everyday conventionalism of collective housing, and that is able to transmit and generate feelings. I want people to be overcome with emotion as soon as they enter the complex and feel the  beauty and harmony that each home provides, without sacrificing functionality.

Residential House Cologne Hahnwald in Köln, Germany by Corneille Uedingslohmann Architekten

Friday, February 17th, 2017

Article source: Corneille Uedingslohmann Architekten

The original planning brief foresaw an adaptation of the existing house, which was inhabited by the building owner at the time. The home owner’s driving aspiration for the project was the integration of a swimming pool with a visual relationship to the outside. After many design variations and the exhaustion of all building parameters it became clear this would not be feasible within the constraints of the old house. However the strong desire for a private swimming pool remained, leading the owner to the courageous decision to tear down the original house and build new in order to realize their ideas.

House in Sharon area, Israel by Dan and Hila Israelevitz Architects

Friday, February 17th, 2017

Article source: Dan and Hila Israelevitz Architects

Program: a couple + three grown-up children. The house is meant to serve three grown-up children in suites of their own and their parents. The basement includes a play/ leisure room, apartmental protected space and one of the children’s suites.

Ground floor: living room, kitchen, dining room, guest bathroom and a pantry. The main idea in the ground floor is the division of the space into two sections: one is the living room, and the second one, hidden, is the kitchen and dining table, which face the front house’s morning garden. The element that constitutes the division is a wooden cube that is detached from the lateral walls to allow for a passageway and disconnected from the structure’s ceiling. This cube includes the guest bathroom from one side, and a pantry from the other side, serving the kitchen. The detachment of the cube from the house ceiling constitutes a sense of flow and continuity in the space.

zeroHouse™ by Specht Architects

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

Article source: Specht Architects

The zeroHouse is a small, prefabricated house that can be easily shipped and quickly erected.  It features a full kitchen, bath, and all elements necessary to comfortably support four adults.  What sets the zeroHouse apart from other prefabricated structures on the market, however, is its ability to operate independently, without the need for any external utility or waste disposal connections.  The zeroHouse can be used in many applications, including residential uses in remote or ecologically sensitive locations, as ecotourism resort units, or as living or office modules for remote employment such as mining, construction, or relief agency uses.
