House_Heilbronn in Germany by K-M-Architektur

Friday, January 4th, 2013

Article source: K-M-Architektur

The three-floor dwelling house is situated on the slope, edge of a forest on the outskirts of Heilbronn. It faces south and offers a sublime view to the surrounding area. A floating design and the use of natural materials using concrete, glass, copper and larch as structural material characterize the single family home. Besides the structural members that establish contact with the ground, the rest of the house is constructed out of wood.

Sliding Door House in Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan by Naoi Architecture & Design Office

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

Article source: Naoi Architecture & Design Office

This house was built for a husband-and-wife couple and their two children. Overlooking a field of sweet potatoes, the quiet and tranquil site lies adjacent to a house occupied by the client’s parents. The space that lies between these two houses is used by local residents as a path, and retains a sense of easygoing, neighborly charm. In order to preserve a rich sense of these connections between nature and people, we decided to install a large sliding door in the front of the house.

Rail House in Santpoort-Noord, The Netherlands by Zecc Architecten BV

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

Article source: Zecc Architecten BV 

The project involves the transformation and expansion of a railway cottage next to station Santpoort-Noord. The railway house is on one side bordered by the railway line between Amsterdam and IJmuiden and on the other side by the National Park South Kennemerland. The contrast between the straight metal rails and the softness of the dunes is the basic idea for the metamorphosis of this railway house. The hardness of steel, concrete and glass across waving grass, shells and wood.

House 3098 in Lantau Island, Hong Kong by HEAD Architecture

Article source: HEAD Architecture

When the Hong Kong’s New Territories Exempted House Policy was introduced in 1972, it was intended to improve the standard of housing in rural areas of the New Territories.

Under the policy, every indigenous villager is entitled to apply to build a small house on private land, or on government land at a concessionary premium, within their ancestral village.

MANDEVILLE CANYON in Brentwood, California by Whipple Russell Architects

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

Article source: Whipple Russell Architects

This horse ranch in Brentwood, California is a livable romantic blend of contemporary and Mediterranean architectural sensibilities. The house was originally created for two artists, husband and wife; one an architect turned director, another, a writer and sommelier. Both were very passionate about every detail that had gone into the creation of all their living spaces; a restoration in Italy and a loft in New York City.

Flynn Residence in Paradise Valley, Arizona by Colab Studio, llc

Tuesday, January 1st, 2013

Article source: Colab Studio, llc

A single physician purchases a home because of the site’s amazing views. The house is somewhat “modern”, but contains several physical features the owner would rather weren’t there. The space does not flow well with each use separated by three main elements: a sunken bar; an entertainment center, and a large masonry fireplace. There is almost no connection between living spaces and the exterior patio. We begin by removing everything in the way, creating a more open space, better circulation, enhanced functions, and improved views. We provide a three-panel telescoping door to the patio. We add a new exterior patio, pool, and spa. A new exposed laterally bracing membrane in the living room, required to replace the fireplace’s structural function, is designed parametrically utilizing the Owner’s favorite image of a skin cell. She requests the interiors be minimal, clean, and white. We happily oblige.
