Boustred House in Balmoral, Sydney, Australia by ian moore architects

Saturday, June 8th, 2013

Article source: ian moore architects

This project is located in Mosman on a north facing slope looking across Sydney’s Middle Harbour to the Spit Bridge and Clontarf. The site falls away dramatically from a broad and densely landscaped verge on the street frontage, with a high sandstone cliff forming the southern boundary. The house is nestled into this cliff, shielding it from the street, where it appears as a single storey, focusing attention on the magnificent view to the north. Entry is from the side street across a small bridge to a front door that opens to a grand stair descending the full height of the house and dividing it into two clearly differentiated volumes. The southern volume contains the service spaces, bathrooms, laundry, dressing room and a small study, while the northern volume contains the living areas and bedrooms. The glass roofed stair between these volumes has an ambiguous reading, neither inside nor out. It is only when one passes through a series of Oak framed portals that you are officially inside. The lowest level contains children’s bedrooms and a games/TV room that opens to the swimming pool terrace. An undercroft below this level contains the pool equipment and plant room. The middle level contains the main living areas, garage and a large north facing outdoor room opening off the kitchen and dining room. The upper level is given over to the main bedroom suite, home office, study and main entry. The simplicity of the external cement rendered form is enriched with an overlay of light bronze anodised aluminum windows, sliding doors and external sun control louvres, while the interior is defined by the Oak joinery and Travertine floors. The northern elevation is composed of a series of stepped cantilevered roofs and balconies with full height ellipsoid aluminium louvres screening the western facade from the afternoon sun and the neighbouring property.

Sharon Region House in Talmei Elazar, Israel by Dan & Hila Israelevitz Architects

Friday, June 7th, 2013

Article source: Dan & Hila Israelevitz Architects

Creating an L shaped house, determined by the lot’s geometry, with flowing mass of blocks with horizontal lines and characteristics. The structure is relatively closed in the direction of the street in order to provide privacy, while part of the design concept was to create a stimulus and attract people to enter the house, like peeking through a keyhole. This concept is translated into the design of a front façade, built out of two layers with an opening in the wall, while the second layer, the inner wall, is in black stone cladding, with glass windows.

Bridging Tea House in Jinhua, China by FR-EE – Fernando Romero Enterprise

Friday, June 7th, 2013

Article source: FR-EE – Fernando Romero Enterprise

An ambitious master plan was designed for the construction of a multipurpose modern city in Jinhua. In the spirit of this plan, the local government commissioned a tea house to be built beside a pond in a park next to the river that runs through the city. The concept was reworked formally to create a structure that also serves as a mirror—the lower part reflects the upper part, thus producing an effect of continuous space. Our first concept was totally open and functioned as a mask in relation to the neighboring pavilions.

Housing block in Valencia, Spain by García Floquet Arquitectos

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

Article source: García Floquet Arquitectos

The building is located on a corner plot in the periphery of the locality of Turís, in the boundary between the urban areas and agricultural fields. It is one of the first constructions of an extension of the rural center, which should accommodate nine homes, a commercial premise on the ground floor and parking in the basement. A monolithic element is proposed in this colonization of the territory, which defines the corner in a blunt way and is established as the first solid piece of reference for future buildings in a still undefined place.

River Room in Chelmer, Brisbane, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects

This project involved the refurbishment and extension to a 1990’s cottage that had been substantially damaged during the January 2011 Brisbane River floods. The existing house enjoyed north east aspect river frontage but had very a poor connection to the river as well as massively underutilized living areas. The primary scope for the project involved the reconfiguration of the existing deck area into the “River Room”, conceived of an indoor/ outdoor space that could be calibrated by the clients to use year round. The space involves a chamfered trapezoid plan with a highly articulated glazed north-east facade. The glazed wall forms a solid barrier to the cold winter breezes while allowing complete openness and transparency during the warm summer months.
