JUNCAL & RODNEY HOME in Begur, Girona, España by Pepe Gascon Arquitectura

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Article source: Pepe Gascon Arquitectura

Some houses close in on themselves when connection with their surroundings is not desirable. However, others open up to their setting when it is clear that it endows them with qualities and provides their raison d’être and hence must become an intrinsic part of the project. This is the case of the Juncal y Rodney home since it is built on a plot of land located on the Begur massif (Girona) in one of the most sublime settings of the Costa Brava. The longitudinal volume of the north-south-facing building of two storeys – the upper one with three bedrooms and the lower one with the shared spaces – is thus open to the Mediterranean and the series of mountains and coves that are glimpsed on the horizon.

House V at R [2012] in Roeselare, Belgium by BURO II & ARCHI+I

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Context

The farm used to consist of several buildings clustered around a residential section. Most farms in the Roeselare area consist of two volumes, situated either parallel or perpendicular to each other. The new home was embedded parallel to the barn. Positioning the home in an L-shape opposite the barn will define the residential section a superior way and strengthen the character of the space. The residential section lies at the heart of the site and acts like a turntable for all internal circulation.

The site of this private house is part of a residential redevelopment in Katendrecht, a harbor pier south of Hotel New York.

HB6B in Stockholm, Sweden by Karin Matz

Sunday, June 15th, 2014

Article source: Karin Matz

When the apartment on Heleneborgsgatan in Stockholm, Sweden was for sale in 2012 it had been used as furniture storage for 30 years. The previous owner had begun a renovation in the 1980s but fell ill and the apartment was left untouched until his death. Time had been frozen; wallpaper was half removed, only a few tiles and a kitchen faucet were sticking out of a wall, there was no electricity and a bathroom only with signs of rats as inhabitants.

House H in Chiba, Japan by Hiroyuki Shinozaki Architects

Sunday, June 15th, 2014

Article source: Hiroyuki Shinozaki Architects

This is a house for young couple and their child, located in Matsudo, Chiba Prefecture. Matsudo City has a background that has developed as a residential area on the outskirts of Tokyo from the 1960s. This new house was planned rebuilding of the house which was built at that time. We seemed to have been asked to build a house as a new symbol in this place by a young family with the hope of the future. So we proposed the house as living symbol by utilizing actually a big roof and structural parts in their daily life rather than just imaginative symbol.

Suntro House in Oaxtepec, México by JORGE HERNANDEZ DE LA GARZA

Saturday, June 14th, 2014

Article source: JORGE HERNANDEZ DE LA GARZA

The Suntro House is located in the residential area of Oaxtepec, Mexico among delightful natural surroundings, with the natural slopes of Tepozteco to the north and the highway leading to Haciendas de Yautepec to the south.  The lot is oriented to the northeast with a splendid view of Tepozteco. The sunlight falling on this white volume creates striking images produced by the whimsical movements of shadows and reflections.  Even in the height of summer, the responsive shape promotes cool interiors by allowing a continuous circulation of air while maintaining a presence that optimizes the potential of its setting. The exposed concrete floor creates a sense of continuity between interior and exterior of the building. The uneven topography was utilized by placing the pool at street level and lowering the house at midlevel.
