La Luge in Quebec, Canada by Yh2 Architecture

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

Article source: Yh2 Architecture

Mostly dedicated to the enjoyment of Quebec’s winter, La Luge is a secondary home lying in the midst of the forest. Nestled on its site, surrounded by dense vegetation preserving the house’s privacy, La Luge integrates a private spa which occupies almost a third of the useable area, adding on to the traditional countryside living spaces.

The site is located at the very end of the residential section developed in the 1970s in Nara, Japan. There are homogeneous prefabricated houses in one side, and ancient Japanese-styled houses and rich nature spread in another side. It is the typical site of Nara. We planned a new residence for young husband and wife.

TR Residence in Bedford, New York by Robert Siegel Architects

Saturday, September 22nd, 2012

Article source: Robert Siegel Architects

Robert Siegel Architects was asked to design an addition to the client’s existing residence, originally designed by Edward Larrabee Barnes in 1974. The program included a new master bedroom suite, which raises the floor elevation higher than the rest of the house and captures additional views overlooking the Hudson River Valley. Studying the original design of the house led to the placement of a fifth organizational “bar” to the east side, near the quiet wooded side of the site.

House Ber in Midrand, South Africa by Nico van der Meulen Architects

Saturday, September 22nd, 2012

Article source: Nico van der Meulen Architects

House Ber has come to life in response to the client’s request for a contemporary, iconic house with no opportunity for unnecessary space, whilst featuring open plans and airy characteristics. And right in response to that and to the rules of the estate, which bans burglar bars, the architects presented a plan inspired with random steel bars used around the house, which could possibly keep flying elephants out!

Victoria 73 in Cape Town, South Africa by SAOTA – Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Article source: SAOTA – Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects

The brief called for a dynamic response to capitalise on the site, by creating an environment where the young family could enjoy an outdoor lifestyle.

The design was driven by the need to create a family home, which accommodated the kitchen, living and dining room in one space. The secondary living area was to be an entertainment space. The pool terrace allows for covered and uncovered areas to relax around the pool. The entertainment lounge accommodates a generous bar, and is close to the outdoor braai area. A dramatic gazebo structure is perched at the edge of the pool deck.

Being a summer house, the main idea is not only creating the interior spaces of the house, but distribute all outer space. The interior spaces seek good relations with the outside world, colonizing their surroundings and their

House in Foz do Douro II in Porto, Portugal by José Carlos Cruz Arquitecto

The house is placed on a hill between two streets and two houses. Its footprint was dictated by the location of the previous building. The transparency and natural light claim itself as a fundamental element in the project, allowing to see the river through the plat-an treetops.

Sunset Villa in Okayama, Japan by TTArchitects

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Sites that were originally like this would have normally been given up on. The TT Architects approach to design utilises these negative elements, converting them into positive ones.
The client came to us wishing for the extension situated on the east-side of the block and adjoining the pre-existing main building be removed, and that a building of a similar scale be built in its place.

Taliesin Mod.Fab by Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Article source: Victor Sidy

The Taliesin Mod.Fab is an example of simple, elegant, and sustainable living. The one-bedroom, 600-square-foot prototype residence relies on panelized construction to allow for speed and economy on site or in a factory. It can be connected to utilities or be \”unplugged,\” relying on low-consumption fixtures, rainwater harvesting, greywater re-use, natural ventilation, solar orientation, and photovoltaics to reduce energy and water use. The structure is dimensioned and engineered to be transportable via roadway.

Skate Park House in Shibuya, Tokyo by Level Architects

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Article source: Level Architects

The owners of this house, a young married couple, made a special request in regards to the design of their house, located in a quiet residential neighborhood in Shibuya ward. They wanted both a skateboard park and a piano rehearsal room to reflect their own individual interests.
There was no need for a car park on the site, so to take advantage of space a private entrance courtyard was designed. The sliding glass panels of the first floor open up onto this enclosed area and allows for the workshop and studio to expand outwards. The studio has a skateboard bowl imbedded into the floor with multiple angles for plenty of different interaction.
