CMYK House in Moers, Germany by MCKNHM Architects BDA

Friday, July 29th, 2016

Article source: MCKNHM Architects BDA 

“Our concept was aiming towards the impossible: To add something new that will change the whole perception and experience of the site but to blend in at the same time.”

History: When the father of the client bought the plot of land besides an open gravel pit south of Moers, Germany in the late fifties, it was still unclear if the mine would be converted into a landfill of garbage or a lake. Luckily, the family ended up with a villa at an idyllic lake that is surrounded by a forest. Because of the possible landfill at the time of construction, the layout of the house was orientated away from this now beautiful nature reserve: The extensive paved driveway was situated between the house and the fantastic nature setting and an existing garage was spatially blocking the connection towards the lake. Inside the house only a view spaces provided a view of the lake.

Blake Street Residence in Victoria, Australia by B.E Architecture

Wednesday, July 27th, 2016

Article source: B.E Architecture

The Blake Street Residence was intended to investigate a typology of coastal architecture which responded primarily to the ruggedness of its Australian landscape setting.

This dictated elevating the house above the ground plane through the construction of a massive stone podium. The choice of Maffra stone and its rudimentary construction relates to similar stonework seen in many of the historic buildings in the surrounding area.

Empty Nester Residence in Arlington, Virginia by Studio Twenty Seven Architecture

Tuesday, July 26th, 2016

Article source: Studio Twenty Seven Architecture

This new house is for an “empty-nester” couple downsizing to a smaller residence now that their children have grown.

The program for the new house was only 2400 square feet, but this was significantly larger than the 1600 square feet found in the existing homes in the neighborhood. The most contextually appropriate massing for the new house was to work with the “pill-box” typology of the original structure. Rotating the orientation of the roof line ninety degrees provide a house with a similar street presence massing but the ability to move deeper into the rear of the site. The home was to be constructed by a local builder using builder-level detailing and common materials and framing. The Owners elected to use wood siding on the exterior for its visual warmth and renewable quality.
