House RE in Vrhnika, Slovenia by SoNo Arhitekti

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

Article source: SoNo Arhitekti 

House RE was very much affected by the demanding local conditions that represented a major challenge for the designing team. Main concept is the ever-changing volume of inner space that is strongly influenced by the surrounding area’s diversity. The boldly designed facade is a combination of dark color shades and natural larch wood’s textures.

MCDhouse in Texas by Adia

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

Article source: Adia

Story: How a 22-year-old architecture student turned scraps into a sustainable paradise for a family in need.

The MCDhouse was built in cooperation with the Sustainable Builders’ Guild of Huntsville (Texas) as part of a local initiative to increase earth consciousness while providing homes for low-income families. Built to the minimum square footage allowed by law (for three residents), the house challenges the “hermetically-sealed box” mentality and sets out to prove that large enclosed homes are not necessary for comfort, functionality, and dignity.

CASA LA CAÑADA in Santiago, Chile by Ricardo Torrejón Schellhorn

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

Article source: Ricardo Torrejón Schellhorn

This house is set on a 1,060 sqm site in the last flat urban area of eastern Santiago before the Andes begin.

The plot is 15m wide by 67m length with an existing garden with mature 40 year old trees.

The original house, built back in the 70’s, took no particular advantage of the garden. Despite being uninhabited for almost 20 years the backyard was luckily well preserved and felt like a forgotten park.

Moor House in Fitzroy, VIC, Australia by Andrew Maynard Architects

Saturday, November 2nd, 2013

Article source: Andrew Maynard Architects

How do you create a home in 4.5m?

It’s tricky, but a lot of fun. A family of four had lived in this modest, ageing house for almost eight years. As the children neared their teenage years something had to be done. Abandoning their home and moving elsewhere was not an option as the family was an important part of a thriving community.

The podium is constructed of concrete retaining walls, the main volume, which is regarded as piano nobile, is made of concrete using wood panel formwork with tongue-and-groove joints, and the white volume contains office.
