Zarid House in Cádiz, Spain by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

Article source: Fran Silvestre Arquitectos

Located on the beach of Cabo de Plata, known as the Beach of the Germans on the Andalusian coast of Tarifa, there is an uneven place with a horizontal view over the Atlantic Ocean.

To optimize the vision of the landscape, a series of slender spaces are intertwined as they adapt to the descending topography. Each of these pieces is deposited half a floor below the previous one. This way, its alternating arrangement allows all the spaces to have a direct view over the beach.

The Roof House in Copenhagen, Denmark by Sigurd Larsen Design & Architecture

Sunday, June 18th, 2017

Article source: Sigurd Larsen Design & Architecture

Natural light is an essential element when you build in the Nordic countries. Indirect light has a beautiful cold blue color that reminds you of the proximity to the ocean. The low sun from south adds a warmer yellow light to the spectrum. The Roof House is designed to catch both indirect and direct sunlight at the same time and turn in into an ever-changing experience when walking through the sequence of rooms.

A perforated wall circumferes the house and creates different grades of privacy and windless outdoor spaces. The house is crowned by a roof of sloped surfaces towards all four corners of the world.

Clapham House in London by MW Architects

Friday, June 16th, 2017

Article source: MW Architects

This is a dramatic transformation of a small, semi-detached Victorian house. Despite being arranged over three floors, it was so shallow in depth that the proportions were cottage like.

We dropped the floor at lower ground level, and excavated a substantial portion of the garden to make space for a two-storey extension made predominantly in glass. The existing rear wall was flattened off and rebuilt in traditional London stock brick, in contrast with the contemporary glazing.

1st Avenue Residence in Montréal, Canada by Architecture Microclimat

Wednesday, June 14th, 2017

Article source: v2com

This new sun-filled home is part of Montreal’s urban narrative yet offers all the advantages of a residential community.

Renewed typology

Montreal’s residential neighbourhoods, densely sowed throughout the 20th century, are interspersed with tiny homes, strewn here and there in the urban landscape. When these buildings are left behind and go on sale, they offer architects a new playground to explore their work, to find creative ways to integrate a contemporary lifestyle in more traditional streets at the heart of the city.
