Sunset Villa in Okayama, Japan by TTArchitects

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Article source: Teruki Takayoshi

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.

Montrose Feature in Bishopscourt, South Africa by SAOTA

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Article source: SAOTA

High on the ridge of Bishopscourt in Cape Town, this unique site resulted from the demolition of an existing house. The site was divided by the existing driveway, which rose steeply from the end of the cul-de-sac below. The new building’s form, perched as it is in a commanding position, was perceived from the outset to be a pavilion overlooking the lawns and the forested valley below.

M-House in Nagoya, Japan by D.I.G Architects

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

Article source: Akinori+Maki Yoshimura

A house as a sreet

A small house built on a narrow site. The width of the site is 5m, just the same as the street in front, and the house is even narrowed down into 3mwidth tubular space.This tubular space separates into two branches,one protrudes straight in the air to create a void underneath for the parking,one slightly shifts down to form an entrance space.This 22m long entrance space is not a closed corridor but almost like a open street, both sides are connected to the environments, even has a branch and a forked point, which leads you to the other side of the site, a little garden and a green road with a stream. This “street” introduces the sense of urban scales into this small house.

Hill’s House in Tagua, Chile by Ignacio Correa

Article source: Ignacio Correa

The house is located in San Vicente de Tagua Tagua, on the northern foothills of the system.  This place is outstanding in terms of orientations, its 40% incline and the morphology of its soils. The commission involved a house, which required a central court or patio which organize the design of different programs.  As regards inner spaces, it was necessary to emphasize the continuity of the spaces involved so as to integrate the different activities that were developed within them.

Feldbalz House in Zürich, Switzerland by Gus Wustemann Architects

Monday, September 17th, 2012

Article source: Gus Wüstemann Architects

This project is not a house but a family sculpture looking for freedom and social interaction. The created sculpture contains family life, where everybody meets and circulates on the first floor, while providing a great view over the lake of Zurich.

This sculpture separates the parents’ area, which is on top of the shape and the children’s area, which lies underneath. The whole construction rests on the volume of the fireplace; an element of content and emotion.
