Monday, January 22nd, 2018

Article source: MESURA 

A construction with an architectural character and segregated in several parts with a large common garden, was what Lluís Clotet and José Antonio Martínez La Peña were looking for in the late eighties to live. The result of the search was to find a majestic “mansion” in Alella, which consists of an old Cottage from 1778 reformed and enlarged in a large Modernist house in 1909. After the discovery, the house was segregated by floors, causing each Tenant would have a floor.

Caledonian Somosaguas in Madrid, Spain by Studio MK27

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

Article source: Studio MK27 

Density or looseness?  Intensity or laid-backness?  Public or private? Urban or suburban?  The problem in creating new housing on the edge of the city is to somehow synthesise all of these seeming opposites – not to choose between them but to lift a little from them all to create a new cocktail of the familiar and the foreign, the everyday and the exotic.

Zig Zag in Los Angeles, California by Dan Brunn Architecture

Sunday, January 21st, 2018

Article source: Dan Brunn Architecture

Israeli-born architect Dan Brunn, AIA, of Los Angeles, designed a modern waterfront home with deep terraces on each floor to maximize outdoor spaces and ocean views. The three-story house occupies a narrow oceanfront lot on Venice Beach between a house previously completed by Brunn (for a different owner) and a two-story apartment building. This tight infill site led the architect to maximize openness and daylight inside the house so the rooms feel spacious and unencumbered. Numerous skylights, floor-to-ceiling glass, and generous windows illuminate the house from the top and sides. The zig-zag shape of the beachfront balconies, gray stucco panels, and rhythmic window patterns create dynamic façades. The visual interplay of projecting and recessed planes facing the beach suggests the ebb and flow of the ocean tides as seen from the house—and artfully comply with local set-back and height regulations.

Article source: OJT

The project occupies a previously vacant parcel adjacent the clients existing home. The new home is a linked primary residence for their aging parents with a secondary rental unit.

The primary unit occupies the entire ground floor, which is organized around a deeply recessed entry porch and an internal, private courtyard. Social program components — kitchen, living, dining — were position to respond to similar spaces of the existing home to create shared-use relationships. Whereas private spaces were located towards the extremities. The secondary unit occupies the street-side second floor, which is accessed from the shared entry porch, and intentionally mirrors the second-floor form of the existing home.
