Single-family home Teplice by 3+1 architekti

Sunday, December 8th, 2013

Article source: 3+1 architekti

Small piece of land owned by a builder that we were dealing with was kind of \”left\” in a rectangular pattern of local development.

The immediate proximity of large villas from the first half of the 20th century left psychologically and physically little space for wild experiments in architectural design.

OZ Residence in Silicon Valley, California by Swatt | Miers Architects

Sunday, December 8th, 2013

Article source: Swatt | Miers Architects

The first requirement that the Owners, a young couple with two children, expressed was that their new home should have a casual, barefoot feel, like a vacation destination, with strong indoor-outdoor connections. Their 2.8 acre site, with gentle slopes to the south and mature landscaping on all sides was the perfect setting to create a home that would fully engage the beautiful landscape for family living.

Vivienda La Florida in Madrid, Spain by Otto Medem de la Torriente

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Article source: Otto Medem de la Torriente

The Florida’s housing is one of the most representative project in our office.

At the project’s beginnings we saw that one of the most important determinant thing, it was its own situation.

The lot was really close to the A6 highway, a very important road in Madrid, so the constant  noise it was very uncomfortable in spite of the location: a quiet  place with lots of vegetation.

Loophouse 2 in Fulham, London by Paul McAneary Architects Ltd

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Article source: Paul McAneary Architects Ltd

This project redefines the internal organization and exterior form of an existing 1960’s single story ranch house. The project for a new master bedroom suite and a guest room leverages the limited scope of work by using the overall new form to give the entire house a new identity. The new massing is positioned forward in relationship to the existing approach and seems to rise upward as the hillside falls. The new master bedroom provides this new front with a formal face, yet does not yet imply entry. As you move further into the site the appearance of a courtyard caught between the existing form and the new massing reveals the new entry.

House Refurbishment in Silleda, Pontevedra, Spain by terceroderecha arquitectos

Sunday, December 1st, 2013

Article source: terceroderecha arquitectos 

Integrating a single-family house on an urban housing estate, while fulfilling today’s functional needs calls for a considerable effort involving the lay-out, the structure and the facilities. Bearing that in mind, the project takes an analysis of the current situation as its starting point, assessing its value as an asset which gives the building its character. The aim is to integrate the project into the surrounding site, rather than dominating or imposing on it.

NESTED BOX HOUSE by TECHNO ARCHITECTURE.inc

Sunday, December 1st, 2013

Article source: TECHNO ARCHITECTURE.inc 

Architecture being a nocturnal art is brought alive by a glass facade giving a moments respite to the eye.

The entire mass adheres to white, making allowances for more room for time and life to leave their marks and traces, an apparent way to stress the “CONCEPT OF RESPITE AND RESPONSE”.

The special sensation is clean and abstract almost surreal, subtle play of levels gives the structure a sense of ease. The finishes and overall appearances of the house tend to be extremely sober and sustained but the principles of its composition, are based on consideration that are closely associated with minimal art, the relationship between elements, the scale, materials and use of light.
