Instar House in Toronto, Canada by rzlbd [Reza Aliabadi]

Sunday, September 11th, 2016

Article source: rzlbd [Reza Aliabadi] 

Instar House is a minimalist three-storey wood & steel structure, which is located on the southern edge of Allenby, a neighbourhood on the border between North York and Toronto. While carefully responds to the needs and lifestyle of the clients, the house has moulted from the small foot-print of the two-and-a-half storey structure that had occupied the site since early 1950s and was infamously nicknamed as half-house.

Clea House in San Diego, California by Nakhshab Development & Design, Inc.

Sunday, September 11th, 2016

Article source: Nakhshab Development & Design, Inc.

Designed, engineered and built by boutique San Diego firm Nakhshab Development & Design (NDD), the LEED Gold-certified Clea House, although just minutes from downtown San Diego, is set on a serene Mission Hills canyon slope. This mid-century modern-inspired single family home complements its surroundings and preserves the existing site terrain with a seamless cantilever design.  Elegantly perched on a three-story access column that encases an elevator, a stairway and one “bonus” room per floor, the nearly 4,000 square-foot Clea House functions primarily as a single-level residence in which large open rooms and outdoor spaces flow together with nature prominently on display throughout the home.

Casa Los Diamantes in Guatemala City by Lavagnino Arquitectos

Friday, September 9th, 2016

Article source: Lavagnino Arquitectos

The design process for Casa Los Diamantes can be interpreted as a response to its context, the site proposed a certain orientation and form in order to gain more space and enjoy the forest view. It was our interest to combine the aesthetic lines and details of the colonial style with a contemporary space distribution. The house is organized from circular and double height foyer, communicating both stories and providing natural lighting and ventilation. To emphasize this space as the buildings core, the floor was accentuated with a floral pattern and integrated to the interior garden that provides light to the second story. We used white in all the surfaces to maintain the purity of the shapes, emphasizing details with granite and wood (walnut). As a result, the house responds to its formal predisposition without compromising the interior space and creating a dialogue between the architecture and its surroundings.

Single Family House Correnteza 21 in Lisbon, Portugal by Humberto Conde, Arq.

Friday, September 9th, 2016

Article source: Humberto Conde, Arq. 

This intervention seeks to maintain only the two main existing facades of the building, at North and East, given the high degree of deterioration of the overall volume. Although the existing building is not a remarkable architectural example and with construction quality, contributes to the cohesion of the urban image of the set to which it belongs, so the maintenance of facades allow the continuity of the dialogue between the building and the context in which it operates.

Modern Beach house in New York by Eisner Design

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

Article source: Eisner Design

This project is an addition to the old 1970’s house by keeping the existing structure with new structures attaching to it.

The programmatic goals were to enlarge a very small kitchen & dining area, add a new den on the 1st floor having direct connection to the pool area that had not previously existed, and add a new master bedroom on the 2nd floor. The new mahogany walkway leading to the pool continues into the house to provide access and a direct visual connection to the pool.
