Coral House in Veracruz, México by Gerardo Ars Arquitectura

Friday, July 25th, 2014

Article source: Gerardo Ars Arquitectura

The essence of the house was to reflect the identity cheerful and festive of the client, and to show their close relationship with their roots and culture. The result, a house that is distinct in the neighborhood with overwhelming personality.

Located in a densely populated neighborhood of the city and surrounded by homes without architectural design, this project breaks the monotony of the site, give a new twist to the neighborhood and promote the interest of its inhabitants to explore a different, innovative architecture.

Touguinhó II House in Vila do Conde, Portugal by Raulino SILVA ARCHITECT, Lda

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

Article source: Raulino SILVA ARCHITECT, Lda

If we climb through the narrow streets to the place called \”hill\” of the village Touguinhó, we can observe the sea from afar, near the town of Vila do Conde.

The implantation of the house took into account the local landscape and a significant slope of the terrain.

4 Springs Lane in Rappahannock County, VA by Robert M. Gurney, FAIA Architect

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

Article source: Robert M. Gurney, FAIA Architect 

Rolling topography, open fields and woodlands comprise a 24 acre site in Rappahannock County, Virginia where this new house is located. Extensive site investigation, including erecting scaffolding at various locations, resulted in the placement of the house high on one of the hills, overlooking a meadow at the base of woodlands.  The house is organized as a series of volumes, arranged linearly and positioned to optimize distant views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Housing at the old city wall of Berlin in Berlin Mitte, Germany by Sohrab Zafari

Sunday, July 20th, 2014

Article source: Sohrab Zafari

This house has been created. It tries to be understood primarily as a complex spatial structure and as a cultural fusion building, as a labyrinth of light, as a new, fresh wind that brushes gently over this place.

Y7-house in Nagasaki, Japan by Architect Show Co.,Ltd

Sunday, July 20th, 2014

Article source: Architect Show Co.,Ltd

The site is located in the hill of the mountain which can take an extensive view of Omura Bay in Nagasaki. Main concept is to harmonize buildings and surrounding natural environment without destroying original natural landscape.

In order not to destroy sloping land, I made basis protrude from flat terrain and designed one part of house floating from ground and extending in air. Also I spread a planting net and performed planting of a lawn. By this way, I harmonize the house and surrounding natural environment with floating house in natural terrain.

House in Los Conejos II in Molina de Segura, Spain by LA MIRATECA

Sunday, July 20th, 2014

Article source: LA MIRATECA

‘Casa en los Conejos II’ is the result of a reflection about how to cope with a huge plot of land because of its particular topography. It has been opted for just one roof covering different rooms and putting them in order and demarcating the outdoor spaces that are going to be used. Showing the „natural relief‟ is one of the final premises of the project.

House 60 in Toronto, Canada by gh3

Sunday, July 20th, 2014

Article source: gh3

House 60 is a renovation and addition to a 50’s suburban house on a large lot in Toronto, Canada.

The existing house was largely introverted—small windows, low ceilings—with a traditional plan—living room, separate dining room and cramped kitchen on the ground floor, and a maze of bedrooms on the second. An undistinguished building from the exterior—brick with a shallow sloping roof—adorned over time with a wrought iron front porch and aluminum awnings. However underwhelming, the existing house was considered by gh3 as a material resource to be reused, rather than abandoned, a position consistent with first principles of sustainability.
