NATURALMENTE CHIC in Treviso, Italy by Daniele Menichini

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

Article source: Daniele Menichini

Ospitalità diffusa is the all-Italian concept which is gaining more and more attention within the ultimate frontiers of the hospitality industry: it mainly revolves around the revamping of existing buildings peppered across the countryside or located in small villages. A concept which has long been conceived differently by other countries. This new interpretation is right where the project GREEN_ZERO has its roots: a new modular housing devoted to the accommodation sector; a suite entrenched in a sustainable shell to be installed in the woods, at seaside, in the heart of the countryside, or wherever the landscape permits.

Evill House in Nelson, New Zealand by Studio Pacific Architecture

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

Article source: Studio Pacific Architecture

This house at Twisted Pine is set on four hectares of undulating land on a promontory near Mapua in the tidal waters of the Waimea Inlet.
The land was covered for many years in tall pine trees, which were cleared to open the site to the water and views. This pine timber was milled and forms the basis of the house itself, meaning that the house’s fabric is literally from the land upon which it sits. Making the most of their impressively large spans, the massive timber beams and columns crafted from these 80-year-old pines were arranged in three long, low wings around a central courtyard.

Modern House in London, England by LLI Design

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

Article source: LLI Design

The brief was to create a 700 square foot extension to house an open plan kitchen / living / dining room to this lateral house in Highgate, North London.

The house is in a very secluded position, surrounded by greenery, completely hidden from view, the only clue as to what lies beyond is a simple discrete gate set in the fence.

Widening interspace to utilize

Many of the requests to us for designing a house are accompanied with a prerequisite of ensuring a house for a nuclear family at an extremely subdivided lot, to whichwe cannot easily applythe manners of architecture having been accumulated for long time in Japan. We repeated trials and errors while designing as we think we are in the formative period for a new manner.

Centennial Tree House in East Coast, Singapore by Wallflower Architecture + Design

Sunday, September 15th, 2013

Article source: Wallflower Architecture + Design

The owner wanted external blank walls. Then talk continued to fixed screens. Centre courtyard for light and air. These summed up for them, the tangible facets of an ideal home, a protective enclosure of solitude.

Introversion has a negative connotation in a culture where being social and outgoing are prized above all else. But what is withdrawal to some is energizing for those who thrive on self-reflection and contemplation; life is found within.

EPR House by Luis Aldrete Arquitectos

Sunday, September 15th, 2013

Article source: Luis Aldrete Arquitectos

The project responds to the morphology and topography of the field taking advantage the length of itself to place the house footprint and achieve more garden area and more cubic meters. So the exercise was to work the superposition of two volumes. The first is a steel basement that gives the impression of solidity and rootedness to the earth at the same time opens to the terrace and garden. The second is a box that has a finishing made from land and pigments to get a terracotta tone that breaks up to achieve the patios that seem to make incisions giving views and privacy inside.

House in Kamihachiman, Tokushima, Japan by Horibe Associates architect’s office

Friday, September 13th, 2013

Article source: Horibe Associates architect’s office

The challenge in this design was to enable a comfortable, open lifestyle despite the fact that the building site is surrounded by other homes lined up uniformly on a street running along their south side. The architects chose not to place windows on the southern side of the home, where they would look out only on neighboring houses, and instead included large windows on the northern side that take advantage of the view of a bamboo forest behind the property.

This house is located in a residential area site close to the Paranoa Lake in Brasília. Searching the maximum integration for the social areas of the house we decided to put all the program under one big roof.
