Article source: Paul Bernier Architecte

The house is in Montréal, on a densely built block in the Plateau Mont-Royal neighborhood. An extension and a transformation of the house had to be made to allow for a family of four. Two rooms had to be added, one for the kids and one for the adults. The house also had to be rethought to make it a coherent project in its spirit and materiality.

Article source: CplusC Architectural Workshop

Located in the Sydney suburb of Castlecrag this home maintains its original presentation to the street, but is transformed internally from a cellular and inward-looking mid-20th century brick house to a contemporary, open and light-filled home. The natural beauty of timber is fundamental to this dwelling’s transformation which embraces the ideals of Walter Burley Griffin’s design legacy for Castlecrag – “Building for Nature”.

House L in Scharten, Upper Austria by Peter Schneider, Erich Lengauer

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

Article source: Schneider & Lengauer Architekten

It all started with an invited competition, which is highly unconventional for a single-family home. Schneider & Lengauer won the tender and had the opportunity to deal with the client’s precise requirements in detail. Three key requirements characterize the result. First, it was necessary to integrate the qualities of the site into a prestigious residential and working environment. Second, the client placed great importance on energy-efficient design. And thirdly, the home should reflect the family’s fondness for the color white.

Haus Ginkgo in Oberwil, Switzerland by on3 architekten

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

Article source: on3 architekten

The house is located in the center of Oberwil, in the north of Switzerland. The neighborhood is designed by older one family houses and small stores. Due to ist geometry, the house offers an unconventional floor plan with comfort, flexibility and space to move. As the rooms are linked and correspondent to each other, they are ideal for family life with space for individual creativity.
The open kitchen and the living room, which are on the same level as the terrace in the garden, form one area. A large glass facade is the only separation between the interior and the external space. The two upper floors offer private rooms, separated by sliding doors. The galleria in the attic gives a wonderful view over the roofs of Oberwil and completes the concept of the flexible and open floor plans. The center of the house is a stair made of exposed concrete. It connects the house in the vertical. The robust and massive concrete sets a contrast to the fine, light white oak parquet floor.

Location: Oberwil, Switzerland

A special feature of the house is the frame-less, partly room-high glazing.Thematically,they are used in every room and open the house to the external space. Thus, the rooms receive a generous, light and friendly atmosphere.
