Located on five acres of dense Ohia forest, this cast-in-place concrete house frames indoor and outdoor living spaces along with views of the forest, the sky, and the coastline on Hawaii’s Big Island.  It continues our exploration of a reductive architecture that enhances the experience of living in this compelling environment.

The Brick House in Gujarat, India by Hiren Patel Architects

Saturday, April 20th, 2013

Article source: Hiren Patel Architects

The combination of natural simple materials and well – lit, ventilated spaces is the perfect recipe for a serene, beautiful home. This home proves that rustic charm can co-exist with sophisticated elegance. Employing exposed cement and brick, was the only requirement the couple insisted on, while the rest was left to our aesthetic sensibilities. Working to create the landscape, architecture and interiors, on the L-shaped land bearing a natural curve, allowed us to draw in a complete visual where nature could intertwine with the structure and interior of the house. The courtyards highlight and intersect the house, working as the natural source of ventilation and light, bringing the outside, inside.

Vi-Sang House in Gyeonggi-do, Korea by Moon-Hoon

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Article source: Moon-Hoon

These are the questions that Korean architect Hoon Moon typically throws out: ‘Why so serious? Why not laugh more?’ Moon-Hoon’s works are home to a wide array of faces. Panorama House appears to be an accordion, and Rock It Suda looks like spermatozoa. He shows a mysterious spacecraft (ongdalsam) and a Gothic castle (Sangsang Museum). Some may burst out laughing at the Darth Vader image overlying Play House.

These neighboring terrace homes are owned by two generations of one family. Both houses were in need of repair and update. HOUSE House is a single building that extends both homes. They are separate homes within one architecture. The new structure runs north/south while the original houses run east/west. The fence between each terrace slides away to create one large backyard.

108 VPO Dwellings in Borinbizkara, Spain by Patxi Cortazar Arquitecto

Saturday, April 13th, 2013

Article source: Patxi Cortazar Arquitecto

The project is the winning entry of a Victoria-Gasteiz town hall competition. The volume proposed by the competition is modified in order to obtain a better orientation of the project in a more prismatic, rectangular form. A north-south orientation allows for the buildings to be more separated, increasing the amount of sunlight that reaches the interior facades. The buildings are designed as differentiated, black and white volumes joined by small boxes that contain the vertical cores. These are also shaped as black prisms.

Tire Apt. student housing project in Istanbul, Turkey by Esin Yürekli

Friday, April 12th, 2013

Article source: Esin Yürekli

This project is designed and built as a housing project for students attending the two nearby universities. The apartment building contains app. 37 sq.mt. one-bedroom units that can comfortably accommodate up to two people. The plot faces a small state owned forest. Circulation areas inside apartment buildings are generally closed, dark spaces and therefore utilized at a minimal level. However, these areas play a critical role in the building’s relationship with its environment, in the formation of the social structure within the building, and in the life cycle of the inhabitants.
