Plot 40 House in São Paulo, Brazil by Tacoa Arquitetos

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

Article source: Tacoa Arquitetos

The São Roque residence was designed based on two constraints: it should take full advantage of the southern view of the lot with an average slope of twenty percent, and be a single-floor dwelling. As a site for the house and the immediate yard, a thirty by thirty meter area was leveled to a height of three meters below the highest point of the lot, based on a calculation of equal amounts of excavation and landfill, using retaining walls reinforced with geo-grids.

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

Article source: Henri Cleinge, Architecte

Inspired to create a home to be experienced by all five senses, the Beaumont concrete house evolved as an exploration project. The design, understated, is situated in a mixed use neighborhood where residential duplexes coexist with small to midsize industrial buildings. Despite the project’s integration, a number of features distinguish the project from other buildings in the area.

This house is designed with prime focus with landscape. This is a first climate oriented house plan. It has a summer garden and a winter garden. Here the plan forms “Z”. Thus it creates two garden spaces on south side and north side,the south side garden is designed like a “forest ” to help tree plantations to create shadows on the building. This used of garden gets sun in morning till late evening, thus ideal to use in winter. Where north side garden has more lawn area, which has shadow of building in afternoon and evening.  It gets good morning sun and than later part of a day is shaded. Thus it becomes summer garden to use in hot days.

B-House in Tel Aviv, Israel by Architekturbuero Sven Roettger

Monday, February 18th, 2013

Article source: Architekturbuero Roettger

The historic context of the “WHITE CITY” of Tel Aviv with its unique assemblage of “Bauhaus-Architecture” inspired this residential design. The solid geometrical volume joins those of its prominent neighbors, inserting a contemporary interpretation of that style. The body of the building is a concrete structure, a rectangular volume cast in situ with rounded edges.

Article source: Parsonson Architects

The property is located in the Wairau Valley, 10 minutes from Blenheim and close to the Wairau River as it snakes along the edge of the northern hills, a patterned rural landscape of farms, orchards and vineyards. The house has a strong connection to the land spatially and materially. There is a sense of encampment, where different interlinked pavilions offer different areas of occupation and Privacy or openness.

Levin Residence in Arizona by Ibarra Rosano Design Architects

Saturday, February 16th, 2013

Article source: Ibarra Rosano Design Architects

Three simple volumes hover above the desert, responding to the challenges of a sloping site and to an ethic of building with minimal disruption to the natural environment. The available buildable area was bifurcated by a minor drainage-way, which inspired the architects to leave the cars behind and link the parking area to the main house by a bridge that allows rainwater and wildlife to flow beneath it.

Article source: Arquitectos Anónimos

The seaside around the town centre of VN Gaia (the city where we made this project) is undergoing a violent residential occupation with the ensuing conversion of its nature state.
