Vertical Loft in Rotterdam, Netherlands by Shift Architecture Urbanism

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012

Article source: Shift architecture urbanism

This so called do-it-yourself dwelling in the centre of Rotterdam is part of a bold experiment initiated by the municipality to revitalize dilapidated urban areas. Run-down pre-war dwellings are renovated on the outside and brought back to their monumental appearance, while the interiors are stripped bare. The empty shell dwellings are primarily bought by enthusiastic young people who transform them according to their specific needs, desires and budgets. Real estate developers have picked up the initiative and a new demand driven market of urban housing has been generated in recent years. The result is a growing number of contemporary custom-made dream houses within the uniform old fabric of the traditional nineteenth and early twentieth century city.

Oxnard Marina Residence in California by Bondanelli Design Group

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

Article source: Bondanelli Design Group

This two story, 8000 s.f. residence is located at the intersection of two channels within the Oxnard Marina. Being a vacation home, and given the maritime location,  the house has a strong Asian theme, and conceptually is inspired by a south East Asian village, with most of the rooms having a separate roof structure, as a cluster of pavilions.
The curvilinear separation between kitchen and public spaces is taken from the shape of the client’s boat docked just outside.

Whale House in Toronto, Canada by rzlbd

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

Article source: rzlbd [Reza Aliabadi]

The Whale house is another spatial experiment by rzlbd, a monochromic contemporary manifesto that evolves around a central detached box painted in red standing free inside a three storey height foyer. The building appears to have swallowed the box symbolizing the contemplation space inside the spacious jaw of the whale that swallowed Jonah.

Article source: Gervais Fortin

The owner, Sabine Karsenti, with the collaboration of the Ecologia Foundation and her designer Gervais Fortin, had the objective to reduce to a minimum her ecological footprint by using healthy, local and little polluting materials. The team demonstrated that it’s possible to build an ecological house without sacrificing the contemporary design. All the materials were hand-picked from the most ecoresponsible supplier’s of Quebec. A combination of exposed beams, big windows and an inner courtyard, signs the beauty of a cozy and modern living space.

House in Hofit, Israel by Paritzki & Liani Architects

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

Article source: Paritzki & Liani Architects

The house is the site itself. The place already has its own geometry created by a gradient rising some three metres. It has an ideal path; it is raised above the ground and visually seems to tower above the sea simply by following the perimeter of the site. This zigzagging forms the grammar of the project.

House J2 in Zagreb, Croatia by 3LHD

Friday, October 12th, 2012

Article source: 3LHD

The family house for a young couple with children is located in the green residential part of the city of Zagreb. The former family house was built in the 1950s on a steep hill slope and did not fully use all the advantages of the site nor did it meet the requirements of contemporary living standards. The beautiful view to the city and large garden was not valued appropriately.
