Skyview in Austin, Texas by MURRAY LEGGE ARCHITECTURE

Thursday, July 12th, 2018


This typical Austin 1940’s bungalow was strategically remodeled to transform an arrangement of dark, low-ceilinged rooms into a single continuous space with kitchen, dining, and living areas. Custom clerestory windows provide indirect day lighting throughout the day, and a tall window slot in front of the kitchen sink frames a crape myrtle. Built-in cabinets maximize storage along both sides of the room.

House with Panoramic Ocean View in Uruma, Japan by CLAIR archi lab Co.,ltd.

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

Article source: CLAIR archi lab Co.,ltd.

On the east side of Uruma-city, Okinawa, Japan, the site is situated on the hill which is 500m away from the ocean. Panoramic ocean view can be seen on the east side of the site. When standing at the site, I conceived that I had to create an architecture optimizing the beautiful location overlooking the sea. To take advantage of the panoramic view, I planned to place large openings as much as possible on the east side of the house, while minimizing the openings on the south side of the house connected to the road. In addition, I planned to install the long walls extended in east-west direction in the parallel with the sea, so as to over look the sea anywhere inside of the house. By the long walls, we clearly divide the house into three spaces which are the entrance, public and private spaces. These three spaces are positioned in parallel from the front side toward the back side of the site. The extra length of the walls makes it possible to enjoy the beautiful ocean from respective spaces of the house, while preventing any obstacle from coming into sight.

Modulor in Madrid, Spain by ZOOCO ESTUDIO

Monday, July 9th, 2018

Article source: ZOOCO ESTUDIO

Just as its name suggests, the project pays tribute to the measurement system Modulor created by Le Corbusier with the same name in the 60s. The architect was also inspired by the Leonardo Da Vinci’s theory of establishing a direct relation between the proportions of building and human-beings.

The result is a project in which colour plays an important role since it seeks to transmit emotions. To do so, Zooco studio has followed chromotherapy guidelines when using the Stone collection by Hisbalit, whose earthly tones and pure finishes reproduce the aspect of rock and stone. A palette that, according to chromotherapy, helps disconnect and relax.
