The Barn House in Diamond Point, New York by Sigurd Larsen Design & Architecture

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

Article source: Sigurd Larsen Design & Architecture

The idea of working with repeated motives of a barn gable is inspired by the American painters Charles Sheeler and Andrew Wyeth. Sculptural monoliths of barns are orientated according to the sloping landscapes giving interesting compositions where many volumes in various directions can be seen as a layered additive structure.

Binh House in Ha Noi, Vietnam by Landmak Architecture

Wednesday, August 10th, 2016

Article source: Landmak Architecture

This house is built on a bad land shape which is separated from the narrowest part of a large land. It has ugly shape and is most cramped. In suburban, people often build houses on very large land plots, therefore, the small area (in comparison with the land in this area) is paid less attention to build a house.

White marble in Chojnow, Poland by Marmur Studio

Wednesday, August 10th, 2016

Article source: Marmur Studio

At first glance, the goal was clear. Modernize an existing kitchen cum dining room located on the ground floor of a single-family home. How appearances can be deceiving! In conversation with the owners, we discovered that half of the house was to later serve as an office. As the office side would face the garden, the original idea was to build a long corridor leading from the kitchen to the terrace door. Our proposal to switch the location of the kitchen and office at first surprised the owners but, after consideration, was found to offer an ideal solution – a functional arrangement separating work space from home life while concomitantly providing the kitchen with a beautiful garden view.

Meadowcroft in Hampshire, UK by OB Architecture

Wednesday, August 10th, 2016

Article source: OB Architecture

The brief required a large contemporary family house that would take advantage of the lovely views over the fields and the Solent beyond.

The site lies within an Area of Special Character that is made up of predominantly traditional pitched roof houses, so the design of the new house had to mediate between the clients’ desire for a contemporary house and the planners’ requirements for a pitched roof form. The design also had to appear modest from the front to respect the 2-storey properties either side.

La Maison Haute in Québec, Canada by Atelier Pierre Thibault

Wednesday, August 10th, 2016

Article source: Atelier Pierre Thibault

La Maison Haute was designed to reinforce the relationship between the residents, their immediate surroundings and the view on Lac Clair. Located on a plateau, in the middle of a steep hill, circled by mature trees and a narrow river, the construction offers an atmosphere of protection within a vertiginous body. Despite being compact, the living spaces interact through double and triple heights and offer a breathtaking sight of the forest, from the bottom of the trunk to the leaves. The master bedroom acts as an overlook on the nearby lake, giving the impression of sleeping in a cozy cabin, lodged through the branches. Attached to the main volume by a thin entry porch, an exterior room lives by the rhythm of the seasons. Protected from changing weather, sit by the fireplace, residents can appreciate every day the sound of the water pouring, the clicking of leaves or the slow fall of snowflakes.

House ER in Goiás, Brazil by Estúdio MRGB

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

Article source: Estúdio MRGB 

The house ER is situated 70km northwest of Brasília. It dates from 2008, at the time we were contacted to make a beautiful property in the country. The challenge that we accepted in a heartbeat. After eight years we received one unexpected news. We were informed that finally the house will be built. Obviously some modification were needed, but without prejudice to the original conception of the house. They actually contribute significantly to the design.

3256 Renovation in Paradise Valley, Arizona by Chen + Suchart Studio

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

Article source: Chen + Suchart Studio

In the suburban landscape of houses that come and go at a bulldozer’s whim, our project looked at the possibilities of adaptively reusing an otherwise drab and lacking piece of architecture and interior architecture into something that utilized the existing space in a new and more meaningful manner.

The Bonita Room Alteration in Nelson, New Zealand by Irving Smith Architects

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

Article source: Irving Smith Architects

An architect’s house is a thing to play with, a bit like life.  Perhaps even more so when its an architecture inherited almost unchanged from Alec Bowman’s original 1960 design for a retired couple, and now in dire need of simple things like a kitchen, spaces to fit a family, and a connection to the garden.
