MERCEDES HOUSE IN GARDEN CITY, A CORUÑA, Spain by CREUSeCARRASCOarquitectos

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

Article source: CREUSeCARRASCOarquitectos

The plot, like all those of the same alignment, has the particularity of being limited at the back by another much higher level which situates the dwellings on the base of a high floor through which the access occurs. With its front facing north, the solution of the housing is also conditioned by the two lateral setbacks that fix the plan and by the minimum width dimensions of the plot. The interior layout is organized into two areas that occupy the northern and southern extremities of the construction; between them appear the elements of communication and a patio facing the interior space through large panes of glass.

Hideout house is a mixture of Richard Alan Meier’s white architecture, Robert Konieczny’s autofamilly house and kaufman’s house widely known as fallingwater by Frank Loyd Wright.

Dobrzyca is a middle-sized lake found near Resko. On the one side of the lake, we can find a small village where tourists come visit during summer, and on the other side there is a forest near which a national park is placed, which has a perfect ecosystem for sundew flowers.

Klein Bottle House in Mornington Peninsula, Australia by McBride Charles Ryan

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

Article source: McBride Charles Ryan

The Klein bottle is a descriptive model of a surface developed by topological mathematicians. Klein bottle, mobius strips, boy surfaces, unique surfaces that while they may be distorted remain topologically the same. I.e. a donut will remain topologically a donut if you twist and distort it, it will only change topologically if it is cut.

The surfaces that mathematicians have developed hold intrigue for architects as they hold a promise of new spatial relationships and configurations. Technology (CAD) has played an important part in all this, it is now more possible to efficiently describe more complex shapes and spaces and communicate these to the build. Previously the more orthogonal means of communication – plans, sections and elevations naturally encourage buildings which are more easily described in these terms, i.e. boxes.

Divergence House in Bangkok, Thailand by FOUNDRY OF SPACE CO., LTD.

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

Article source: FOUNDRY OF SPACE CO., LTD.

Situated inside an existing lush garden in the middle of one of Bangkok’s expatriate areas, Divergence House emerges from the intentionof preserving as many existing trees as possible within the site. Therefore the question of this project is not so much about how to design a house being seen explicitly from outside, but rather about how to seamlessly converge the internal spaces with the natural setting in a way that it still captivates a sense of domestic atmosphere.

Palillos II House in Lima, Peru by Staff7

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

Article source: Staff7

The project is on the beach Palillos, south of Lima, Peru to 116 kilometers from the city.

The starting point was to achieve transparency, so as not to obstruct the sea view, and not just people who live there can see the beach but also the neighbors who are not in and walking back. This was achieved by placing the private spaces to the side, making a coated stone volume and the rooms are on the second level, public spaces like the living room and kitchen in most area so you can see through them with clear glass. To keep privacy between outside and inside the income level rises. Another important point is achieved with the design is the connection of the outer housing glasses to hide inside the walls and be completely open to the outside.

Tunquen House in Valparaíso Region by Nicolas Loi

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

Article source: Nicolas Loi

The house is locates in the beach area of Tunquén, central coast of Chile, in an almost flat site near the sea. From the ground level of the site, the views to the sea are limited, so the first design choice was to locate the most important areas of the house in the first level, from where the sea and the beach can be seen more easily.
