Min House in Buenos Aires, Argentina by POP-ARQ

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Article source: POP-ARQ 

The house is part of a typical Buenos Aires condominium typology called “PH”. The houses are aligned in a very long and narrow lot, and connected through a corridor. In this case, the unit is located in the middle of the condominium with no direct connection to the street, opening to its own patio. The lot area is quite small, measuring 7m by 6m.

Exceptional House in the Middle of a Natural Forest

Sunday, July 6th, 2014

Article source: v2com

Five minutes from the village of Val-David, near Dufresne Regional Park, a jewel of a development is hidden up on a hill. So few of these properties, destined for true nature lovers, are left in the region.

This natural haven of some 50 acres hosts an exceptional residence, now for sale. Born from the imagination of artist Robert Lachance, this live-in sculpture tells a fascinating story of symbols and connections.

Twin-Bricks by Atelier TEKUTO

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

Article source: Atelier TEKUTO 

This house consists of two family units for the client and his parents and five rental apartment units.

The family block, made of reinforced concrete structure, is located in front while the apartment block, made of steel structure, is located in the back. Exterior walls of the apartment block are made of glass blocks with ALC (autoclaved lightweight concrete) panels used in some parts for seismic reinforcement. The family block is made of reinforced concrete. Lightness and heaviness of the two blocks create a sharp contrast on the site and the same applies to the interior spaces, reflecting different life styles of each of the residents.

Ming House in Monterrey, Mexico by LGZ Taller de arquitectura

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

Article source: LGZ Taller de arquitectura

The design of the house generates a perception of spaciousness well above the square meters of actual construction. Each one of the generated spaces follow the priority of extending the sight lines: the long entrance corridor that elongates through a linear garden outside; the long stairs that links the second level with the first one and continues towards the length of the swimming pool; every distributing zone visually reaching a perspective of the inner patio.

Gardélegui Family dwelling in Álava, Spain by Roberto Ercilla Arquitectura

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

Article source: Roberto Ercilla Arquitectura

The old buildings dotted across the Llanada, or plain, of Alava, which make up small village communities, are rather like large warehouses used for a number of purposes: family home, cattle barn, etc.

On the whole, these constructions are very simple in shape, being heavy, with a double sloping roof and small windows.

House # 1.130 in Madrid, Spain by estudio.entresitio

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

Article source: estudio.entresitio

This is a single-family house, but quite a large one, something over 5 hundred square meters, site is narrow and long and sloped towards south.

Two different schemes superimposed one on top the other; a longitudinal one, based on spatial forking, and the one underneath, based on a hand fingers like configuration. As a result, it is a fractured mass, ruled by the rhythm of the roof structure.

Hustadvika Tools in Norway by Rever & Drage Architects

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

Article source: Rever & Drage Architects

This small but multifunctional building was designed and constructed, both as an answer to the clients need for a wind-and-rain shelter at their outdoor summer house-piazza, and as a combined tool-shed and special-occasion-sleep-under-the-stars-facility. A complex program for a modest building, making way for double-functional elements and architectural ambiguity.

The site at the utmost north-western-coast of Norway, presented it with some harsh and always changing weather conditions including a daily spray of salt water.

Small Box House in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan by AKASAKA SHINICHIRO

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014


The residence is built on the western hillside of Mt. Moiwa, overlooking the city of Sapporo. Although, being the 5th largest city in Japan, the cumulative amount of snow cover in the winter season exceeds 6 meters.

From the casual lifestyle of the client and his wife, and also the request to have a part of the house turn into a cafe in the future, we aimed to create a space to be flexible to support various events, such as the new birth of a child or starting a new cafe, where various life-scenes exist with reasonable distances to each other inside a simple void, like a barn.

100 % Home in Wroclaw, Poland by Kabarowski Misiura Architekci

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

Article source: Kabarowski Misiura Architekci

A house from the 1920s was redeveloped and modernized. The interior layout was changed and elevations were unified. The result of these actions is a construction which is undoubtedly modern yet inextricably linked with the buildings of the past with the form of a traditional house.
