Coach House in Breukelen, Netherlands by Zecc Architecten Utrecht

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

Article source: Zecc Architecten Utrecht

A monumental coach house annex stables from 1760 is converted into a spacious house. A mishmash of built curiosities from previous renovations is removed. In this way the historical elements and large spaces return. The stable, still complete with hay racks, stone troughs and iron cast horse heads, is used as a living room.

House Like Garden in Amsterdam, Netherlands by Marc Koehler Architects

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

Article source: Marc Koehler Architects

The 140m2 house is located on a small plot in IJburg; a recently developed suburb of the city of Amsterdam. The house is designed as a vertical garden giving space to flora and fauna to grow in a densely urbanized area. Closed private spaces contrast with open collective spaces, that seem to have been ‘carved out’ from the solid volume as a continuous transparent void. In this way the interior space is visually and physically connected to the street, the garden and roof terraces.

Residence Study in Mijares, Spain by Eduardo Fdez.-Abascal Teira + Florentina Muruzábal Sitges

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

Article source: Eduardo Fdez.-Abascal Teira + Florentina Muruzábal Sitges

The house and the workshop are located in a plot in a small housing estate in Mijares. It has good accessibility, a rural environment and far views of the mountains. The design solves a complex program, considering the determinations of the planning and the characteristics of the site: access from the good orientation; a sloped, trapezium shaped plot; orientations; sights; adjacent buildings; and the presence of a great tree, a salix fragilix.

Las Acacias in Huixquilucan, Mexico by GOO ARQUITECTOS

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Article source: GOO ARQUITECTOS

Las Acacias is a project located outside of Mexico City. The idea came from a place to enjoy a weekend break with family or friends where they could pursue other activities of recreation. With the idea that the use of the house would not have the same dynamic of a house in the city, we intent to take advantage of the outdoor space to the fullest, leaving the space covered as small as possible. Thus the relationship between interior and exterior space becomes a crucial issue.

Gros Ventre Residence in Jackson, Wyoming by Stephen Dynia Architects

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Article source: Stephen Dynia Architects

Nestled into a hillside, this low profile residence creates a contrast of spatial experiences. The house consists of two intersecting “bars”. The south and east side of the bars capture downhill views to the valley floor. On the northern uphill side, the house’s two wings form an intimate courtyard with a grove of aspen trees. At the entry, the geometry is skewed by an alignment with a prominent mountain peak view line to the east.

This building is a weekend residence for a husband and a wife who loves to go climbing. It stands on east facing slope inside a national park, where grand nature can be viewed in all directions.

Beach House I-5 in Lima, Perú by Vértice Arquitectos

Sunday, May 12th, 2013

Article source: Vértice Arquitectos

This house was designed in the first row, plot5 in Lomas del Mar beach in Cerro Azul, 120Km. south of Lima. The plot is a rocky and sandy hill in a half curved shape that reaches48 meters high above the sea level and drops steeply8 meters in its lowest part. It has a 180° view to the Pacific Ocean to the south, and a panoramic view of the beach to the east and to the north. The two main goals to develop the project were to fully exploit the best possible view to the ocean from the social area, as well as from the master bedroom, and to make the most of the plot of land.

J-4 House in Lima, Perú by Vertice Arquitectos

Article source: Vertice Arquitectos

We were faced with a plot of land shaped as a quarter of a circumference that had a height difference of 5.50 meters on the curved side. This side has a privileged view of the sea. In addition, we were conditioned by the construction regulations which enabled us to build two terraced levels.

Haus Wiesenhof in Tirol, Austria by Gogl Architekten

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

Article source: Gogl Architekten

The client requested a getaway – a place of peace and contemplation with a strong relationship to the nature surrounding it. This alpine refuge is a symbiosis of spatial openness and enclosed areas. According to the design specifications, rebuilding or extending the house beyond the existing cubage was not permitted, which entailed a massive limitation for the design. Through the basic ideas of interlocking the inner rooms and the form design of an open and richly varied spatial structure, the architect conceptually compensated for the design restrictions and created a generous living and leisure space.
