Shifter in Saguramo, Georgia by Stipfold

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Article source: Stipfold

The hillside house for a large family is gracefully flattened out on the landscape. The facade is simultaneously minimalistic and massive, marking the building’s modest and strong presence in nature. The multilayered open space in the backside of the house brings an inevitable sense of unexpectedness. The terraces in the garden with lounge areas and The playground carry a cosy vibe.

Örnberget – Spine/Precipice in Stockholm archipelago, Sweden by Petra Gipp Arkitektur

Friday, November 11th, 2016

Article source: Petra Gipp Arkitektur

A narrow site high up on a precipice overlooks the inner Stockholm archipelago to the south. It meets a dense row of pine trees to the west and a softer grove of deciduous trees to the east. One enters the site from the north, where a generous staircase mediates the initial steep south-facing slope. The stairs follow a concrete wall that forms the spine of the structure, and lead the visitor downwards between the concrete wall on the one side and a wooden volume on the other. The staircase leaves the visitor at a gap in the concrete wall, providing a glimpse of the garden on the other side. The promenade continues along the closed wall, towards the view and the water, now flanked to the west by the row of pine trees. A second opening in the wall presents the entrance to the house and extends a passage through and across it, into the garden.

The Bartlett Residence was designed as a luxury vacation home in the middle of a dry tropical forest area.  The property has a long and narrow building envelope area (limited by the development), that works parallel to the slope of the land, which is a fairly constant natural slope of around 30 to 35 degrees, forming into a natural ravine in the middle of the buildable space.

House expansion in Zugló, Hungary by batlab architects

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016

Article source: batlab architects

We first met our customers (Anikó and Bálint) in the summer of 2013 who wanted to expand their home due to their growing family. Our task was to build a whole new storey  and a ground floor terrace after removing the hip roof. The family has outlined their requirements for the rooms, however we were given a free hand in the design and appearance.

There was enough time for planning, the customers spent a lot of time mulling over their new home, and we have also redesigned the house multiple times. While one week we thought that something is a good solution, the other week we thought the opposite.

This project is significant for its seamless spaces and ingenious cabinet making.

Michelangelo Olivieri has conceived walls as containing spaces, in order to achieve greater purity.
