House Sch in Bregenz, Austria by Dietrich | Untertrifaller

Friday, February 3rd, 2017

Article source: Dietrich | Untertrifaller 

Built on an extremely steep piece of land with an area of only 450m², Dietrich│Untertrifaller designed this single family home to best fit the constraints of the site. While a black painted concrete core ties the house to the hill and contains all service rooms, a more open wooden structure was chosen for the living area and bedrooms. The form of the home allows for the focal point of all the interior spaces to be the forests and the Rhine valley below.

Gallarda House in Almería, Spain by José Francisco García-Sánchez, architecto

Friday, February 3rd, 2017

Article source: José Francisco García-Sánchez, architecto

«Las Negras» is a small town in Níjar, Almeria (Spain), with fishing tradition. The settlement is situated betwen a cape called «El Puntón» and the «Cerro Negro» (black mountain) cliff: emblem, icon and, surely, town´s origin.

The Gallarda House, is a holiday residence that, probably, it will end up becoming the permanent residence of a young couple with an intense social life. It is a house of ample dimensions in its public area —living and dining room— and it is always connected with the outdoor area: terraced plot, where it will be planted pine tree, as much as the pool deck. Therefore, it proposed a life of simple acts, without sacrifice the daily pleasures: water a plants, sit to read under a tree or dive into the water. The Mediterranean architecture was always that simple white frame, sometimes invisible which man comes to happiness almost without realizing it.

Casa Tabares de Cala in Canary Islands, Spain by Alejandro Beautell, architect

Friday, February 3rd, 2017

Article source: Alejandro Beautell, architect

The renovated single family house is located in the historical city center of La Laguna, Tenerife, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Priori to the renovation, the house was ruined due to the abandonment which it had suffered for decades.

It is a traditional patio-house with a structure of massive walls covered by a wooden structure made of Canarian pine called tea. Its composition is simple and its strictly simetric facade still shows the dignity of an old house of the 18th  century. During the course of years the house had been transformed, enlarged, and sometimes damaged.

EPILPSY RESIDENTIAL CARE HOME in Dommartin-lès-Toul, France by ATELIER MARTEL

Thursday, February 2nd, 2017

Article source: ATELIER MARTEL

The site is located between pastures and activity areas in the semi-urban fringe located at the outskirts of the small town of Dommartin-lès-Toul. It extends on a gentle slope in front of the parking of the former American hospital and opens up to the panorama of the Moselle valley.

The value system based on which historical cities have been built has been substituted by the logic of traffic flow and lower cost. And even if it is unable to produce any urban quality, the so called “activity area” continues to be, most of the time, the place of work of contemporary architects, as it is where the cities expand and develop. At the same time, these unrestrained city fringes represent a source of imagination for the architects, a comparator, a particular landscape, extremely contemporary, hence fascinating, and therefore; able to convey emotions and memories.

13 SELF-CONSTRUCTED HOMES in Palenciana, Spain by elisavalero arquitectura

Thursday, February 2nd, 2017

Article source: elisavalero arquitectura

The architecture belongs to the place, which conditions it and makes it singular. The urban layout and topography, and its ensuing definition as an observation space, as well as its insertion in the landscape, the lighting conditions and the use of materials are at the root of an idea that has materialized here in a way that continues popular Andalusian traditions—white houses in a white village.

Mornington Beach Houses in Victoria, Australia by Habitech Systems

Wednesday, February 1st, 2017

Article source: Habitech Systems 

This project on the Mornington foreshore creates two double storey houses on a lot facing Mills Beach and bordering the mouth of Tanti Creek with full utilisation of Habitech’s panel system.

Situated near Melbourne in the Victorian town of Mornington, the brief to design two beach houses was primarily driven by the opportunity to create living spaces with extensive northern views over Port Phillip Bay, and both the opportunities and limitations of its creek side location. One house has been designed for our clients to live in, with the second house being offered for sale upon completion.

Article source: Philipp Kammerer Architekt

In the project the attic apartment of an apartment house was expanded by an additional room. The apartment is conformed over 2 floors. On the upper floor there are the living-room and the kitchen, on the lower the bedrooms.

Due to the client’s whish that the  extension should meet several uses, this expansion was consciously left without precise function.

House in Tsubaki, Japan by PANDA – Person and Architecture

Wednesday, February 1st, 2017

Article source: PANDA – Person and Architecture

The site is located in a residential district, which is easily accessible from a principal road. It is a so-called “flagpole-shaped site”, meaning that the rectangular site is located at some distance from the public road and linked to it by a long and narrow path. The site is surrounded by two-story and three- story buildings on the four sides. The client requested an indoor garage so that he can enjoy looking at his beloved car from living room and also an inclined roof with solar panels.

The Wood Duck in Québec, Canada by L’Abri

Wednesday, February 1st, 2017

Article source: L’Abri

The Wood Duck is L’Abri’s first built house design. A simple concept, rational plan and traditional methods of construction were put forward to simplify the construction of the project, self-build by a young carpenter with a modest budget. The architecture is humble : the little wood volume recedes in the landscape.

This little house was drawn for a young carpenter wishing to self-build his first home in Bolton, in the Eastern Townships of Quebec.
