Winsomere Cres in Westmere, Auckland, New Zealand by Dorrington Architects & Associates

Sunday, September 29th, 2013

Article source: Dorrington Architects & Associates

A contempory home incorporates the charming but time-worn house, and capitalises on the stunning views on offer.

The original house on this waterfront site was a double-skin brick bungalow with warren-like rooms and little connection with the foreshore. The clients liked the traditional detailing of the existing house but wanted to maximise the aspect and views.

HOUSE ON A WAREHOUSE in Torres Novas, Portugal by Miguel Marcelino

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

Article source: Miguel Marcelino

The briefing was to build a three-bedroom house on top of a warehouse built in the 80’s, where part of the roof was made with a flat slab and a small balcony, precisely with that idea of later building the house.

Given the constraints of the existing warehouse, the house shape turns out to be automatically set: a box that rests on the existing structure.
