East Village Penthouse in New York by The Turett Collaborative

Sunday, August 14th, 2016

Article source: The Turett Collaborative

TCA has had a lot of experience connecting smaller apartments together into a seamless whole, but this adventurous client requested something we’d never seen before. In a newly constructed multi-residential development, in the East Village of NYC, TCA had the opportunity to meet a unique client’s desire to combine two penthouse condos… with a helical slide. In this transformation, two identical 1-bedroom units, one atop the other, were combined into a duplex 2-bedroom home with the option to descend in the usual way on a new Italian-made “Rintal” stair, or more speedily, in a seated position, careening through the new double-height atrium.

Article source: Global Architects & Associates

Separated from the noisy city, the house is humbly ensconced in a small alley on Hoang Van Thai Street, Hanoi.

With an area of just over 46 square meters, the house is required to guarantee essential and necessary functions of a home for a young couple about to get married, however are limited in terms of extremely tight budget, and time of construction as short as possible, especially in the future it can be easily renovated and replaced when the economy is stable and life-changing is needed. Over many plans in place, the architects finally find the most optimal plan.

The project proposes an architecture that responds to the inherent qualities of the site, privileged views, and the larger context of the Sonoran Desert.  The language of the house draws upon these inherencies and allows for a greater understanding of the project’s circumstances.

Custom home in Westport CT by DeMotte Architects

Friday, August 12th, 2016

Article source: DeMotte Architects

This project started out as an addition/remodel to a really nice little cape…”we’d like to remove the roof and build a second story addition”. This kind of project usually leads to extensive remodeling of the first floor, at which point you’re very close to the cost of just building a new house. One I heard “we’d also like taller ceilings on the first floor”, that’s when the decision was made to tear down the house & build a new house in it’s place.

Hoan House in Nha Trang, Vietnam by Vo Trong Nghia Architects + ICADA

Friday, August 12th, 2016

Article source: Vo Trong Nghia Architects

The house is located in Nha Trang, a city in central Vietnam surrounded by the beautiful ocean and mountains. The client wanted a large house with a large garden. Answering to this request, a single roof is designed as a hanging garden to plant numerous trees and plants on it. The local building code, however, requires almost 50% of the roof area to be covered by gray or orange-color tilings and to be sloped. To obey this rule but maximize the green area atop, the roof is divided into parallel bands of greened roofs and  tiled roofs in an alternating sequence.

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.
