Net Zero Energy House in Gyeongsangnam-do by Lifethings

Saturday, March 2nd, 2013

Article source: Lifethings

Beginning of this project dates back to a personal experience encountered by the client, Dr. Jung Soik, a cultural cura­tor and architectural educator. Dr. Jung was studying in Milan, Italy, when she witnessed a local truck-drivers’ union strike against the rocketing oil price. Three days into the strike, Dr. Jung found herself unable to find fresh groceries in the city. This experience brought her attention to the vulnerability of various systems our everyday lives rely on. She began to imagine herself one day building a self-sufficient community. Sosoljip is Dr. Jung’s first step towards her dream.

5.6 House in Sarzeau, France by Avignon-Clouet Architectes

Saturday, March 2nd, 2013

Article source: Avignon-Clouet Architectes

Situated on the west coast (Morbihan), this resort house crouches in its own field as if to protect itself from the sea’s spray. Entirely made of concrete and granite, its mineral appearance welcomes with sensitivity, the shadows due to light changes. Perforated by many patios, the house integrates some framing on of the capricious sky of the west coast. The long sunshades remind the sand fences guiding walkers along the coast paths.

The skins are a movable device which can control sunlight, wind and privacy as ESD screens.

Cotacachi House in Imbabura, Ecuador by Arquitectura X

Friday, March 1st, 2013

Article source: Arquitectura X

A couple from the Caribbean seek retreat amid the northern Andes in a small town, two hours north of Quito, an orchard site in a valley 2470 meters above sea level, between the Imbabura and Cotacachi mountains, to the east and west respectively. The couple needs a design proposal in 4 days before going home, or they will sell the site: we have to design a house without knowing the site and after meeting the couple for two hours.

VALLECAS 47 in Madrid, Spain by Estudio UNTERCIO

Friday, March 1st, 2013

Article source: Estudio UNTERCIO

We tried to imagine, all of us together, a dwelling in which we would like to live. Bright and open to meet with friends some of us said, intimate and in semidarkness, the laziest ones replied. A dwelling with a multiple personality. One that would be able to react to the changing seasons. One that would open itself to two different environments; on one side, a street belonging to a new urban development, but close to the urban life of Vallecas Village, and on the other side, a bounded and safe courtyard.

House of Would in Madrid, Spain by Elii

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

Article source: Elii

This house is located in a 1,316 m2 sloping plot of land in the district of Pedrezuela,45 km north of Madrid. There is little to no vegetation in the section closest to the street, which nevertheless provides a good viewpoint on the surrounding lush natural landscape.

The building is made up of seven wooden-structure modules symmetrically identical surrounding a central court. Each module is dedicated to a different domestic situation, according to its functional needs. The modular structure, as well as the scale of the rooms allows the alteration of this functional logic, serving as a support for possible future layouts.

Article source: Terra e Tuma Arquitetos Associados

São Paulo. In this city, which contemporaneity is able to perform the most extraordinary urban contrasts for us, living can reveal an encouraging condition. In search of a place where this could be experienced, the idea of an elementary residence acquires the character of a happening. Thus, as this house decided to silently place itself at the westerly metropolitan meanders, is how it is presented at Maracanã Street.

ALV&NAT House in Madrid, Spain by ALT arquitectura

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

Article source: ALT arquitectura

We are used to perform spectacular photographic reports retouched in photoshop to show a perfection, which is neither true, nor is attractive in my opinion. We focus on an architecture more intuitive and emotional than intellectual and rational, where raw sincerity of its construction. We try to generate emotions, derived from the configuration of space and form, use of materials, their textures, their relationship with nature and light.
