Passive House in Hradec Králové, Czech Republic by Echorost architekti

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

Article source: Echorost architekti

The house was designed for the old couple, whose main demands were low maintenance/operation costs and distribution of main rooms to the ground floor.
It was the specific shape of the plot which set a boundary of the house and together with structural constraints also defined a resulting geometry of the house. The geometry was based on a consistent extrusion of the house boundary. The proposal took into account also an option that clients could buy up the neighbouring plots. This came true during the construction of the house. The design of the house was optimized for the lowest energy demand while keeping other design demands (e.g. possibility to use the first floor as a second flat). Therefore the house met the passive house criteria and among else qualified for the appropriate government subsidy.

Gottshalden in zurich, Switzerland by Rossetti + Wyss Architekten

Sunday, July 21st, 2013

Article source: Rossetti + Wyss Architekten 

The house in Gottshalden is located on a plateau over the Lake Zurich. It is set in green surroundings with a high quality of life, dominated by agriculturaluse. The volume exhibits a unified design, with a reduced, sharp-angled timber facade. The furniture-like wooden skin defines both walls and rooftops, covering the exterior in a single material, unbroken. The various geometries lend the structure plasticity, while the windows flush with the exterior, are emphasized with lighter-colored reveals.

MY house in Korčula, Croatia by STUDIO ZA ARHITEKTURU

Sunday, July 21st, 2013

Article source: STUDIO ZA ARHITEKTURU

Contemporary thought arises in the process of balancing the complete freedom and absolute control of precise perceptions (exact analysis) with the free play of the imagination. It tries to encompass all the stories, to include all (possible) contrasts and contradictions in order to emphasize the true story that excites and interprets possible events.
