Maison en bois sur les crêtes du Jura in Guyans-Vennes, France by Cambiums Architecte

Thursday, September 8th, 2016

Article source: Cambiums Architecte

The structure incorporates motifs from the vernacular architecture of this part of the Jura. A simple rectangular volume covered by a pitched roof is set perpendicular to the contours of the terrain and the prevailing wind. Exploiting the site’s topography and history, the basement is built into the hollow of a small disused quarry. This buried level houses utility rooms and garages accessed via a gentle ramp from the road to the north.

Modern Beach house in New York by Eisner Design

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

Article source: Eisner Design

This project is an addition to the old 1970’s house by keeping the existing structure with new structures attaching to it.

The programmatic goals were to enlarge a very small kitchen & dining area, add a new den on the 1st floor having direct connection to the pool area that had not previously existed, and add a new master bedroom on the 2nd floor. The new mahogany walkway leading to the pool continues into the house to provide access and a direct visual connection to the pool.

Ocean Eye-A Terrace House in Puntarenas, Costa Rica by Benjamin Garcia Saxe Architecture

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

Article source: Benjamin Garcia Saxe Architecture

The Holdener family bought a beautiful property with two breath-taking views: towards the ocean and into the jungle. We decided to rest the house against the back of the steep hill of the site in order to stabilize the soil and protect the house from falling debris. The house then transitions from a more solid and intimate construction at the back that holds bedrooms and bathrooms, towards a light-weight and ephemeral structure that points to the visual collapse of the ocean and jungle views. The result is a series of interwoven terraces that relate to each other in all dimensions creating not only an internal dynamic interaction between levels, but also varied and sometimes unexpected relationships between the inhabitants and the natural landscape. In these interstitial terrace spaces, which are never truly inside or out, architecture comes to foster the relationship, enjoyment, and appreciation of the natural world by the inhabitants.

HAT house in Tokyo, Japan by APOLLO Architects & Associates

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

Article source: APOLLO Architects & Associates

The client is a couple in their 50s and both work full-time. Their plan was to rebuild their parents’ house in the urban area in order to live with their mother. The site is located in a dense residential area where one can find the remnant of good old days of Tokyo. In order to prepare for possible natural disasters in the future, the couple wished to build a house of reinforced concrete box frame construction with high resistance to fire and earthquakes. Since the site is small with a deformed shape, it was required to achieve the maximum capacity while avoiding setback-line limits on each side of the house.

Tecnomec Workshop House in São Paulo, Brazil by PAX.ARQ

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

Article source: PAX.ARQ

As a result of a particular programmatic condition, the workshop-house project was conceived to host a residence, a high-performance mechanical workshop and classrooms in a 260m² terrain located in the Pinheiros neighborhood, São Paulo.

The programmatic activities were distributed in a specific way so it was possible to take the greatest advantage from the functional and legal point of view. The result is a separation of the program in three levels: ground-floor, which hosts the mechanical workshop activities, revisions, repairs, part-washing and a dynamometer room for vehicle testing; first floor, where the classrooms, study rooms and bathrooms are located; and second floor, place for the residence.

Passivhaus Marlegno in Bolgare, Italy by Marlegno

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

Article source: Marlegno

Passivhaus Marlegno is a single family house on two levels situated in Bolgare (BG), Northern Italy.

ECO-SUSTAINABILITY is the key word of this project: its structure consists in wooden load bearing walls and floors made of wooden joists assembled without glues, thanks to an innovative construction system called Tavego.

Raw materials come exclusively from Italian PEFC certified forests. This allows Marlegno to take full advantage of the ecological characteristics of a natural material such as wood, reducing GHG emissions and making the interior spaces healthier.
