Hawthbush in Sussex Downs, England by Mole Architects

Saturday, March 30th, 2013

Article source: Mole Architects

Mole won planning permission to refurbish and extend this 17th century farmhouse in open countryside within the High Wield area of the Sussex Downs. The scheme replaced several ‘70s additions of little architectural merit with a single barrel-vaulted extension. The extension and alterations are designed to allow greater prominence to the original farmhouse which is modernised internally, making the building function better as a family home. Attached while visually separate, the extension contains a generous south facing family kitchen with an open aspect on the ground floor; a new master bedroom enjoys the vault above.

Article source: Stamberg Aferiat + Associates

The Shelter Island Pavilion gave Peter Stamberg and Paul Aferiat an opportunity to bring their influences, inspirations, aspirations and years of architectural design to bear in one place with only themselves and their budget to define the boundaries. They chose to draw on specific inspirations such as Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion, Le Corbusier’s Ronchamps, and Marcel Breuer’s Wassily Chair.

House in Sayo, Japan by Fujiwarramuro Architects

Friday, March 29th, 2013

Article source: Fujiwarramuro Architects

A narrow space threads through the center of this house, expanding and shrinking, curving and meandering. This part of the house morphs and transforms to become a space for relaxation, study, reading, or teatime. We built a small room in the middle of this space. As the width of these branches changes, the purpose of this room, along with its relationship with the surrounding space, transforms along with it.

Gravel Hill House in Southold, New York by Studio a/b Architects

Thursday, March 28th, 2013

Article source: Studio a/b Architects

Long Island Sound fills the northern horizon; a coastal pond lies to the west. Both water bodies are close to the site, however the water views are not visible at ground level, except climbing up a gravel hill just at the northern boundary. In counterpoint to an existing gravel hill, the design invites climbing levels and discovering vistas. Lifted places, rooms and decks are branching out to reach views and sky. Experiences of vertical movement are provided.

Coma 02 House in Castellón, Spain by Juan Marco Marco

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

Article source: Juan Marco Marco

The house is located on a lot of 1560 square meters, with a complex topography of steep slopes both in the longitudinal (north-south) and transversal (east-west) directions. The strategy for the project is developed from two initial decisions:

– Locating the dwelling in the highest area (the least usable, a priori), where the slope is the steepest, to generate horizontal areas (habitable, usable) in the rest of the lot. In this way, the entire lot can be surveyed from the house, the relationship with the landscape is thus intensified, and the best natural ventilation is taken advantage of, which is important given the harsh climate especially in the summer.

Indian Paintbrush Residence in Jackson, Wyoming by Carney Logan Burke Architects

Thursday, March 21st, 2013

Article source: Carney Logan Burke Architects

Situated in an aspen grove near Jackson, Wyoming, this residence was designed to make the most of both the small buildable area of the site and the modest budget allotted for construction. For ten years prior to building, the clients had lived on the site in a dark 1970s log cabin. The project parameters included a closer connection between the new form and its beautiful site, a less overtly traditional western vernacular expression than that of the old residence, as well as an adherence to a very tight budget of $160 / square foot – a major challenge in the inflated economy of a resort community.
