Two family house Gaicomuzzi in Kaltern, Italy by Monovolume architecture + design (designed using ArchiCAD)

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

Article source: Monovolume architecture + design

Giacomuzzi house is a duplex building. It is conceived as a highly compact body to fulfill energy issues and it fits into the sloping terrain to exploit the landscape. The house is oriented towards the path of the sun and overlooks a stunning sight. The site is located on the outskirts of the village Caldaro sulla strada del vino, where between the house and the lake Caldaro there are just fields and vineyards. To show up this wonderful view, a continuous wall closes three sides of the building, whereas the south facade features wide windows and balconies.

Tree House Porch in Terrell Hills, Texas by John Grable Architects

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

Article source: John Grable Architects

Nestled in a 50’s era suburb, the design program called for two items: renovating the entry façade of a modest home and adding a screened porch to the backyard.  However, the client had a strict construction budget. In response, the role of the porch was doubled to serve both as a dynamic façade for the front elevation and as a casual outdoor gathering space.

Sited above Albuquerque’s Petroglyph National Monument, the Escarpment House is a visually porous version of the classic New Mexican courtyard typology. The house’s spatial sequence is a progression through outdoor spaces – from an entry court though a glazed interior courtyard to the Sandia View Patio.

The project responds to the morphology and topography of the field taking advantage the length of itself to place the house footprint and achieve more garden area and more cubic meters. So the exercise was to work the superposition of two volumes. The first is a steel basement that gives the impression of solidity and rootedness to the earth at the same time opens to the terrace and garden. The second is a box that has a finishing made from land and pigments to get a terracotta tone that breaks up to achieve the patios that seem to make incisions giving views and privacy inside.

Located on a secluded, wooded site about 25 miles north of Seattle, a 1950’s Northwest Contemporary house has been completely renovated while retaining the spirit of the original house.

The building is organized in two pieces, shaping an L that defines the access square opened to Plana Avenue, being the natural way to the roads that are approaching from the urban center. The access from the square is common to the official buildings and housing, setting up one only entry point. The square is paved and gardened with palm trees.

The rhythm led by the double alignment of trees contributes to the extent of the site. Housings located along the street are inspired by this initial step. It is a kind of respect towards the scenery which reminds massive urban boulevards.
The project begins by building the main limits of the site. The both sides of the central place are connected to the parc and the environment.

Atelier de Jardim AS in Vale do Ave, Portugal by J. M. Carvalho Araújo, Arquitectura e Design S.A.

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

Article source: J. M. Carvalho Araújo, Arquitectura e Design S.A.

A couple of doctors gather friends and colleagues to meetings and thematic workshops. Without adequate space in the current house, they requested a small multifunctional building for an adjacent parcel.

On the edge of town, in the slope of the valley, lie the two terrains at different heights. In one terrain, overlooking the other, there is a detached house in the center. The other has a beautiful informal garden, with large trees and a lake that anticipates the feeling of the river lower down. It was essential to maintain this view over the garden.
