Dwelling Veeckman – Gélis by Egide Meertens Architecten

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

Article source: Egide Meertens Architecten

Inside the house, the surrounding landscape presents itself as a painting. The integrated covered terrace forms the link between the outside room and the living area. Contrasting sharply with the openness towards the landscape, the house is ‘isolated’ from the street by way of a lockable, pivoting gate.

A mirror is held up to the presbytery-style dwelling. From the entrance part, one has a view on the patio garden, which in turn is linked with the consultation room of Acad’Emo. Cupboards connect different rooms with one another: the cloakroom and the dining room and kitchen cupboards have been designed, in combination with the doors towards the storage room and the garage, as a continuous set of wall units.

A skylight creates an abundance of light in the transparent bathroom. This skylight also generates another light on the detached kitchen unit. The straightforward staircase separates the spare room on the ground floor from the sitting room. The office space on the first floor looks – over the staircase – onto the magnificent landscape. Accents in wood cut across the aimed at black and white contrast.

House in Miramar, Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal by e|348 arquitectura

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

Article source: e|348 arquitectura 

It is a building consisting of two distinct adjacent and interrelated volumes, the housing itself – consisting of two storeys plus a penthouse – and a garage.

Although the volume, apparently, is being treated as a solid monolith, it is fully traversed, with vertical and horizontal voids, with the purpose of creating strong visual relations with its contiguous exterior spaces, and allowing the light to enter through the entire house.

Alcoutins House in Lisboa, Portugal by Guedes Cruz Architects

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Article source: Guedes Cruz Architects 

The site is the plane where our projects become architecture.

It is on this that we build and what we see are the apparent forms, those which appear above this plane.

In the Alcoutins House the real form is that which has as a support a plane which is 3.5 metres below ground level. It is like a lake, where the volumes float or rest on the base, where we see only the part that appears above the waterline.

S House in Lima, Peru by domenack arquitectos

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Article source: domenack arquitectos

The house is the result of dealing with three important variables: satisfying the functional needs of the family, adapting the design to a difficult sloping topography without resorting to complicate and expensive structures, and capturing the views towards a golf course despite the fact that the plot is not adjacent to it.

Nakano fireproof wooden House in Tokyo Prefecture, Japan by Masashi Ogihara Architect & Associates

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Article source: Masashi Ogihara Architect & Associates

A site is an area where a residence crowds in Tokyo.

Since restriction of the 7-meter minimum altitude had started, many houses of 3 stories were built and had been located in a line around the site.

Therefore, except the south side which a road connects, they were the conditions which cannot expect many taking in outside environment to an inside.

57 Tivoli Road in South Yarra, Australia by b.e Architecture

Thursday, April 24th, 2014

Article source: b.e Architecture

The house, 57 Tivoli Road, is situated on a corner block in the inner city Melbourne suburb of South Yarra.

Formally one of a series of attached row houses of disparate & eclectic housing styles, the exposed corner site meant a protective building was required for both visual and acoustic privacy, and the design seeks to create an enclosed shelter for the occupants, as well as forming an architectural bookend to the procession of houses which precede it.

Holston River House by Sanders Pace Architecture

Thursday, April 24th, 2014

Article source: Sanders Pace Architecture

A young couple approached our firm in late 2011 asking if we would help evaluate the feasibility of building their first home together on a rocky, heavily wooded East Tennessee site. The primary site constraints were clearly visible in the form of moss covered rock outcroppings scattered throughout the wooded hillside. Initial conceptual design efforts focused on options which limited the impact on the site while taking advantage of the unique opportunities presented by this rugged landscape. Early schemes were narrow and linear, weaving around the rock outcroppings and following the site’s contours in an effort to limit the elevation change from front to back.
