Plateau Residence in California, United States by Michael Hennessey Architecture

Monday, January 28th, 2013

Article source: Michael Hennessey Architecture

This 5-acre parcel is defined by a challenging topography along with an abundance of native oak trees. The client for this single-family residence requested a direct connection between the interior spaces and the surrounding landscape. The resultant strategy was to place all of the living/sleeping/working areas into a single main level to maximize the immediate relationship to the land. The massing of the building is seen as a respectful addition to the existing topography.

MO House in Madrid, Spain by FRPO Rodriguez & Oriol ARCHITECTURE LANDSCAPE

Sunday, January 27th, 2013

Article source: FRPO Rodriguez & Oriol ARCHITECTURE LANDSCAPE

Systematic freedom

The MO House project belongs to a family of projects developed in the office beginning in 2005. These projects explore the possibilities of generating architectural complexity out of the combination of simple elements. Throughout this process of projects, conditioned by a large number of program specifications settled by the clients, we have been forced to systematize every design decision in order to simplify the process to its full capacity. The results produced a nice surprise: the combination of a number of extremely simple spaces offered an extremely rich spatial experience.

(((DB))) HOUSE in Nantes, France by Avignon-Clouet Architectes

Sunday, January 27th, 2013

Article source: Avignon-Clouet Architectes

The arrangement of this house is born of the radical choice to place the required swimming pool in the very heart of it. The topic was set as such, with this pure white parallelepiped covered with scales on North face and glass on South face, the outside and in boundaries fantasized by architects are both mastered and still quite unclear.

Telegraph Hill Addition in San Francisco, California by Michael Hennessey Architecture

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

Article source: Michael Hennessey Architecture

This project renovates an existing two unit, three story residence that was originally built in 1907 on Telegraph Hill in San Francisco. The challenge of the project was determining the relationship of the fourth story and roof deck addition to the historic structure below. The resulting approach was to provide cement board panels at the addition creating a subtle material shift between new and old. The use of a consistent dark grey color visually unifies the addition with the existing form.

House N in Gramastetten, Austria by Archinauten / Dworschak+Mühlbachler Architekten

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Article source: Archinauten / Dworschak+Mühlbachler Architekten

The residential family home is located on a hillside that slopes towards the east on the outskirts of the city of linz. The topography of the building site, building regulations, and the location of the plot were defining parameters for the design and conception of the house. The result is a clear structure, which appears monolithic from the outside, but has a complex interior spatial structure.

Private House in Menorca, Spain by Dom Arquitectura

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Article source: Dom Arquitectura

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 views.

Residential Housing 26 units in Obhur, Saudi Arabia by Dom Arquitectura

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Article source: Dom Arquitectura

The aim is to project 26 houses in the Obhur area. The client wanted to use the same isolated unit type, but generate differences in the street facade to avoid the traditional house complex with all the same.

Recalling the Islamic markets, we remind the Arabic spices image, located in the same container but with different color shades. Natural tones that would fit perfectly into our idea.

Vivienda Unifamiliar in Menorca, Spain by Beriot, Bernardini Arquitectos

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

Article source: Beriot, Bernardini Arquitectos

The project arises from the consideration of the specific character of holiday life and the Balearic islands’ gentle climate. The house is conceived mainly as a porch crossed by air, light and scenery. The ample program is organized in local-stone volumes which configure, in the spaces between them, the north-side patio and, under the first floor, the main living space. Three powerful concrete porches perpendicular to the stone volumes frame the sea in the horizon, set the northern limit of the patio, and define the relationship between the later and the main living space.

Casa Vattier in Valparaiso, Chile by Elton+Léniz Arquitectos Asociados

Saturday, January 19th, 2013

Article source: Elton+Léniz Arquitectos Asociados

This house is placed in the last third of a sloping site which it is accessed from below. This position determinates the construction so that the access path doesn’t interrupt the view of the near context of the house.

The whole program is developed in a unique level, with the exception of a bedroom, a bathroom and a guests living room that takes advantage of the acclivity of the site and appears below the main volume of the house.
