Lee House in Porto Feliz, Sao Paulo, Brazil by Studio mk27

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

Article source: Studio mk27

With the façade radically horizontal, the Lee House is organized in a single volume ground-floor site. All of the rooms therefore, establish a strong relationship with the external, opening out to the garden. The spatial continuity with the living room is larger: all of the windows are recessed creating an extension of the external space, with a large veranda. The living room then prolongs the pool deck and crosses to the other side of the lot.

Family House Libochovany – extension in Czech Republic by 3+1 architekti

Sunday, May 5th, 2013

Article source: 3+1 architekti

We are asking how to adapt a hundred years old  and only little maintained house to everyday needs of a modern family (small floor space, technology and materials not functional anymore, lacking sanitary facilities …). At the same time we do not want to break or violate soft, sensitive links and layerings created here over the time, as these generate a strong character of this place – magical (and familiar) atmosphere.

Residence in Kifissia, Greece by Tense Architecture Network

Sunday, May 5th, 2013

Article source: Tense Architecture Network

The residence’s plot is small and an adjacent building almost blocks the southern sun. The main part of the field should remain free and become the residence itself: an austere prism, centrally supported, hovers above the liberated ground. At first, an area was defined: a cubic shell of plants creates a limit for the house. In order to reside, ones withdraws in. Three metallic columns support a net of inox ropes where plants have already started to climb in order to generate a volume equally important to the house’s prisms.

Apelle in Karjaa, Finland by Marco Casagrande

Sunday, May 5th, 2013

Article source: Marco Casagrande

Apelle is a wooden one family house located in Karjaa – Finland. The building rests in a natural harbor like a boat in a sheltering pocket surrounded by bed rocks and trees. The interior space of Apelle is a continuous tube that grows gradually along the house and through the main opening and terrace into the forest. Along this axis the collective and private actions are tuned according to the times, functions and needs of the day and night.

Yin Yang House in Venice, California by Brooks + Scarpa Architects

Sunday, May 5th, 2013

Article source: Brooks + Scarpa Architects

This nearly net-zero energy live/work home and office was designed to function not only as a home and commercial office for both parents, but also as a private home for a large and growing family with several children. We sought to create a calm, relaxed and organized environment that emphasizes public space and changes the stereotype of a live/work home for a large family with young kids. Part private home and part business, the house is meant to serve as a place to entertain and a welcoming space for clients and teenagers.
