Bookcafe House in South Korea by KDDH

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

Article source: MasilWIDE

The client has drawn a life where children can run, family communicates each other and communicates with their neighbors, but there are clear limits of the apartments. The most characteristic feature of a book house resembling a book is the bookcase where all books on the bench can be stacked. It had always been the client’s dream to have a house full of books on the one side of the wall. The living room have turned into a study room, and the bookshelves was made on the entire wall with a high floor. The window between the bookshelves was created to relieve the tightness of the walls and the front of the bookshelves became a center of communication where the whole family can gather and spend time. The kitchen is placed facing the bookshelf so that it can communicate with the family in the living room at any time. After closing the sliding door installed in the kitchen, the living room becomes a space like a cafe and becomes a guest room for the neighbors as well as the family. The book house has lots of spaces to read like a book, as ‘The bookcase of the wisdom’, built by using the 9m ceiling height that can be seen at the entrance, ‘Balcony of Romeo and Juliet’, connects between the brother and sister’s rooms on the second floor and ‘Bridge of the never ending story’, which is the nickname of the stiarcase that looks like leading to the sky. These spaces gathered to make the house that open inside and outside, top and bottom unimpededly and coexist.

House of Switzerland Alameda Pavilion in Mexico by Dellekamp Arquitectos

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Article source: Dellekamp Arquitectos

House of Switzerland Pavilion emerges with the celebration of the seventy years of diplomatic relations between Switzerland and Mexico, Dellekamp Arquitectos began to work on the project without a defined program and site, so a modular system was designed based on a triangular grid that allows adaptation to different locations and changing needs of the program, which allowed transformations during the design process. This adaptability feature allows it to be itinerant and a location to multiple sites without damaging the environment.

Mattos House in São Paulo, Brazil by FGMF Arquitetos

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Article source: FGMF Arquitetos

Design a house for a young family was the project’s main point. The steep-sloped site had a unique view to one of São Paulo’s main arterial roads. To use said site to our advantage in the creation of the house’s spaces, the attention to the circulation flows and the leisure area seemed to us like some of the most important questions to be addressed from the very beginning.

FF HOUSE in Jalisco, Mexico by HERNÁNDEZ SILVA ARQUITECTOS

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Article source: HERNÁNDEZ SILVA ARQUITECTOS 

The house is located on a gated community, to the west of the metropolitan area in Zapopan, México. The land is located at the end of the subdivision which you need to access by passing through a roundabout with an old laurel.

The project was developed in a short period of time; however the construction took a little longer than expected but the approved design did not suffer any changes because the owners always respected the original idea.

Dupli Casa in Near Ludwigsburg, Germany by J. MAYER H. und Partner, Architekten

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Article source: J. MAYER H. und Partner, Architekten

The geometry of the building is based on the footprint of the house that previously was located on the site. Originally built in 1984 and with many extensions and modifications since then, the new building echoes the „family archaeology“ by duplication and rotation. Lifted up, it creates a semi-public space on ground level between two layers of discretion. The skin of the villa performs a sophisticated connection between inside and outside and offers spectacular views onto the old town of Marbach and the German national literature archive on the other side of the Neckar valley.

Guaparo House in Carabobo, Venezuela by NMD NOMADAS

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

Article source: NMD NOMADAS

In the tropics, the rooms of a house may be inner and outer spaces overlapping each other; nature and the house are everywhere.

It also seeks to express in the house a way of being characterized by understanding the inner and outer as domestic, even in the public and the open; where the exterior and interior are continuous as an expression without barriers of that expanded domesticity.

La Cardinale in Montréal, Canada by L. McComber

Sunday, April 30th, 2017

Article source: v2com

For a long time, this semi-detached house built in the 1950s in Montréal’s Ville-Saint-Laurent neighbourhood was home to a family of three young children. Over the years, many extensions were added to its aging structure. At the back, its broken-up spaces had only one opaque door and four small windows. Built without a foundation and worn by time, the annexes in the backyard were keeping the abundant natural light from coming into the kitchen. After the children fled the coop, the house was due to undergo major renovations, particularly to meet the needs of the owner’s new lifestyle. The owner entrusted his project to L. McComber architects with three goals in mind: open the living spaces, make the most of the natural light and garden view, and preserve the spirit of this family home filled with memories.

Sunday, April 30th, 2017

Article source: Studio Marco Piva 

Historical Background: Acquisition of the Project & Concept

At the beginning of the project there was a careful research focused on the dualism between classic and contemporary, international and traditional, public and private spaces, to integrate all those aspects in a fluid and natural way.

Precisely, it has been the dualism of public and private that has strongly influenced the project concept.

The Melbourne Residences in Brisbane, Southbank by Tony Owen Partner

Friday, April 28th, 2017

Article source: Tony Owen Partner

The Melbourne Residences, is a 20 storey building consisting of 200 units in Brisbane’s Southbank. It contains retial and rooftop club including gym, pool, cinema and dining room. The tower plan is driven by the desire to maximise the oblique views from the units to the river and CBD. This results in a stepping form which maximises the number of units with access to the East. We derived inspiration from the ripple patterns created by the wind. This ripple orders the stepping of the façade reflecting the interplay of the environment on the façade. The tower has a unique undulating façade which ranges from zero to 4m. These facades contain operable glass screens to create wintergardens. These wintergardens provide a second skin to maximise thermal efficiency and reduce energy use. Melbourne street is becoming a fashionable retail address. We designed a 4 storey retail façade. Retail connects the street via a through site link to Fish Lane which is being revitalised by art installations and cafes as a bohemian centre. The clients brief was to create a superior residential address and activate the street with world class retail.
