HOUSE ON THE CLIFF in Alicante, Spain by FRAN SILVESTRE ARQUITECTOS

Friday, August 30th, 2013

Article source: FRAN SILVESTRE ARQUITECTOS

We like the virtue of architecture which makes possible constructing a house on air, walking on water…

An abrupt plot of land overlooking the sea, where what is best is to do nothing. It invites to stay.

A piece that respects the land’s natural contour is set in it.

holiday home in Vitznau, Switzerland by Lischer Partner Architekten Planer

Friday, August 30th, 2013

Article source: Lischer Partner Architekten Planer

The clients’ desire was to live in a timber house. However, the challenging geology, the exceptional hillside location and the existing environment prompted us to design a solid construction in which the hard shell of the concrete facade encases and protects the soft core of the timber house. The prefabricated timber frame cassettes were erected, sealed and insulated on site and clad with single skin concrete. The timber construction stands as ‘a house in a house’. In combination with the concrete shell, it was possible to optimise its load bearing dimensions as it does not have to resist any shear forces.

AA HOUSE in Almería, Spain by MVN Arquitectos

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

Article source: MVN Arquitectos

Up in the light, abandoned the heart, is delivered. Collected. Finally lulled and without penalty. Hosts In the light where no one suffers violence, because it has gotten there, in that light, without and even force any door without opening it, without going through lintels of light and shadow, without effort and without protection. “ María Zambrano, Notes of a method.

The AA Home project arose from the need to build a site able to create a meaningful place. “So the house does not destroy this sense of peace that I had the first time I looked at the horizon from this hill, and to protect it” they asked us.

AP House by MVN Arquitectos

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

Article source: MVN Arquitectos

A terrace was created which allowed us to open up the views overlooking the sea on one side and mountains on the other. We located the building at the edge of the northern boundary at the highest viewpoint as the southern part was very steep. From this position we designed a floor layout that allowed us to enjoy the double prospect of the building and at the same time taking maximum advantage of what the site has to offer.

Bord-du-Lac House in Dorval, Canada by Henri Cleinge Architect

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

Article source: Henri Cleinge Architect

Approached to renovate a 200 year old Quebec stone house and to design a significant addition, we were challenged to define a clear conceptual approach which would reconcile a contemporary architectural language to the ancestral home. The original structure once belonged to the Hudson Bay Company and had the main entrance facing the river, where the old road was situated. Over time, a new road was built on the back side of the house, which now became the front.

Exercise with the arches n˚1 in Avetrana (Taranto), Italy by NAUTA architecture & research

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

Article source: NAUTA architecture & research

This two family house presents a traditional local row house scheme, introvert on the street and open on the back garden. The central rooms, living and dining areas, suffered great lack of light, due to their distance from the two facades.

The ground floor rooms presented existing vaulted ceilings, very valuable for their architecture and space effect. This scheme imposed the preservation of the enfilade of vaulted spaces, yet needing a strategy to avoid the box in box effect and extend multiple internal flows and views.

House of Kasamatsu in Gifu, Japan by Katsutoshi Sasaki + Associates

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

Article source: Katsutoshi Sasaki + Associates

It may have become fewer these days, but many people still have experiences of eating or relaxing with families beneath a tree, or climbing trees to find their own space to play.

It is just a metaphor, but the desirable place for a family to gather and spend time may be somewhere like beneath a tree, laid-back, with moderate sunshine and comfortable breeze.

SINGLE-FAMILIY HOME IN Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain by PATXI CORTAZAR

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

Article source: PATXI CORTAZAR  

Single-family home built essentially in the ground floor, leaving at the first floor only a little studio at the double height of the room and a guest room with bathroom.

The plot has a leaning slope towards the direction North South, so that the construction is located at the North of it, leaving as much space as possible in the South direction.
