One storey high building is located in Saue parish Koidu village in a private housing area.

Arthouse in Kharkiv, Ukraine by Pominchuk Architects

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Article source: Pominchuk Architects

Arthouse is our first built project in the typology of terraced houses. The compact spatial layout of the house, made of several blocks, was largely determined by the small area of the plot and the surrounding urban context. The inner structure of each unit resembles an open “bookcase”, where each living process occupies its own level, all of them being interconnected by means of an open staircase. Besides, each block has its own backyard, which can be accessed from the kitchen-dining room. This unconventional layout of the house originally served as a key to the interior of each of the units. Permeated by sunlight, the interrupted space of the house prevails over colour, texture and other ornamental features. However, while designing the interior in one of the blocks belonging to a cheerful energetic lady, we had to find a compromise between the sterility of the house and its emotional component that could be experienced as warm homeliness. Our close collaboration with the client resulted in a sort of Mediterranean dwelling that combines all the necessary features, striking a delicate balance between integrity and emotions.

House Between Party Walls in Barcelona, Spain by Josep Ferrando Architecture

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Article source: Josep Ferrando Architecture 

The architect Josep Ferrando resolves the complex urban conditions of the context and the site in which the house is located – less than 5 meters wide and with a particular topography that constrains the parcel between two streets situated at different heights – starting the conception of the project from the shaping of the volume.

Properly Breathing House in Hanoi, Vietnam by H&P Architects

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Article source: H&P Architects

A “suffocating” situation

Just 15 kilometers far from the center of Hanoi, the suburban district Dong Anh has witnessed pervasive urbanization – one of the major causes for a trend towards a maximum use of volume and quantity of construction areas. Lesser importance has been attached to the quality of used space and surrounding scenery. This has resulted in a large number of “suffocating” buildings as often found in newly planned, stuffy urban areas characterized with land plot subdivision for building row houses in Vietnam.

The Corner House in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects 

The Corner House is a contemporary design responding to a character vernacular in a quiet suburban street in inner-city Brisbane. The house is designed around three courtyards, offering a plan that transparently connects the indoor and outdoor living spaces. A simple but poetic palette of light, natural materials is the backdrop to a rich tapestry of shadows created by the screened elements that offer a reinterpretation of the traditional verandah.

House Benz in Stuttgart, Germany by Ippolito Fleitz Group

Saturday, November 26th, 2016

Article source: Ippolito Fleitz Group 

Markus Benz, company director of prestigious furniture brand Walter Knoll, and his wife Susanne wished to find a Stuttgart base that would enable them to offer their business partners an alternative meeting place to the company headquarters 40 km away in Herrenberg on the edge of the Black Forest – and to live there too. The family found a property in the Kräherwald, a popular location above the city, and moved into what is known as a ‘coffee-grinder house’, typical of the 1920s. The house used to function as a doctor’s practice, so the layout was restored in line with its original purpose and with respect for the building’s structure and history. On one hand our task was to create a home environment that suited the family’s discerning aesthetic demands and offered a framework for their art collection. On the other hand, products from Walter Knoll were to be staged in an authentic and atmospheric context, far removed from trade fair and showroom presentations.

Terraces Home in Ha Tinh city, Vietnam by H&P Architects

Saturday, November 26th, 2016

Article source: H&P Architects

As a part in a chain of Agritecture development projects, Terraces home adopts the combination of Architecture and Agriculture (Agriculture + Architecture = Agritecture) as a basis for sustainable development.

The idea is to combine the two distinctive elements of Vietnam’s rural areas: The house (accommodation space) and terraced rice field (cultivation space) to create a Home with blurred boundaries in and out; above and below; common and private.

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects

This bold extension heavily inspired by our modernist leanings sits poetically atop its 33,000sqm bushland setting. The house explores ideas of transparency and solidity through the use of a heavy stone base juxtaposed against its heavily glazed, cantilevered pavilion above.

House in Rubielos de Mora, Spain by Ramón Esteve Estudio

Saturday, November 26th, 2016

Article source: Ramón Esteve Estudio

The essence of this project is a revision of a stately house, the traditional rural house that forms the old quarter of Rubielos de Mora and so the surroundings of our building. The traditional architecture is reviewed with a modern view so the house is integrated in its historical surroundings but it is also related to our present time. The external façade adheres to the style, materials, colours and proportion between solid and void of the historic buildings around.

House With a View in Mogilany, Poland by doomo

Saturday, November 26th, 2016

Article source: doomo 

Timber elevation and roof (boards and shingle) are perfectly common to a local Polish nearmountain building tradition, which is exacly where the house is built. These natural materials will change during the time, they’ll “live” together with the seasons and wheather. Because of it with every passing month and year the building will blend more and more into the landscape.
