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.

Summer-house in Lipno, Czech Republic by B² Architecture

Tuesday, July 26th, 2016

Article source: B² Architecture

A young couple has purchased a lot in a resort area of Lipno. The lot was located in the woods of the local foothills. An old summer-house, that had been built on the lot in the 80s, needed to be turned into a primary residence for this young couple. They both love the outdoors and wanted to be closer to the nature around. The main goal of the house’s redesign was to keep its simple form and to create a connection between the nature outside and the interior.

Friday, July 22nd, 2016

Article source: Edra arquitectura km0

This modern rammed earth house is located in Ayerbe, a little village in the Spanish Pyrenees. Rural migration in the region during middle 20th century led to the disappearance of traditional architecture techniques. This house attempts to awaken the interest of the community and the curiosity about this type of sustainable buildings that are strongly linked to the territory. The project has been inspired by old local earthen buildings regarding their orientation, morphology and the use of local materials.
