E20_Private Residence in Pliezhausen, Germany by Steimle Architekten GmbH

Friday, April 28th, 2017

Article source: Steimle Architekten GmbH

The striking residence, a monolith designed of insulating concrete is located on a quiet street with little traffic in the village of Pliezhausen, a good 30 km south of Stuttgart.

Facing the street, the new building presents only a few openings cut deeply into the solid concrete shell. While the crystal-shaped house still relates to the existing built context due to its parallel elongated sides, it contrasts distinctly with the neighboring buildings by virtue of the tapered ends formed by its shorter sides. It is this oblique arrangement of the facades that enables the building to open out to the surrounding outdoor spaces and to offer its inhabitants unexpectedly expansive views in the distance. A conventional gable roof and the gently rising terrain reinforce the angular, sculptural effect of the house, which is designed on a hexagonal ground plan.

Paddington Terrace House in Sydney, Australia by Luigi Rosselli Pty Ltd – Architects

Friday, April 28th, 2017

Article source: Luigi Rosselli Pty Ltd – Architects

A designer would find oneself dancing to a familiar tune when approached to upgrade this terrace house in Paddington, a suburb east of Sydney City. Faced with the age old problems presented by much loved terrace housing – damp, dark and introverted – we sought to create a luminous space to give a full family a much needed dose of vitamin D. Introducing some fluid lines with a light filled stairwell at the centre and a sun drenched kitchen and living at the rear, the new configuration of old and new proves an enriching experience. Accustomed to muted tones, and a subtle palette, a much needed spring was put in our step by the bold use of colours, delphinium blues, cadmium yellows, beautiful artworks, exotic patterns and rich textures carefully selected by the interior designer in residence, Heidi Correa. The lush landscaping at the rear provides a verdant backdrop to family life. The final result knocked even us off our feet.

The Birdcage Lift Enquiry in New South Wales, Australia by Luigi Rosselli Pty Ltd – Architects

Friday, April 28th, 2017

Article source: Luigi Rosselli Pty Ltd – Architects 

It began with a simple enquiry. “Can we have a bird cage lift?” And so with this addition at its core, a once unexceptional dwelling on Sydney Harbour was transformed into an extraordinary waterfront townhouse. By reconfiguring the house around a revived grand stair with the new bird cage lift at its centre, accessibility, comfort, elegance and good living across five stories was made possible.

Vertical House in Dallas, Texas by Miró Rivera Architects

Friday, April 28th, 2017

Article source: Miró Rivera Architects 

Located on one of the few lots in Dallas elevated enough to enjoy a view of the downtown skyline, the five-story Vertical House rises dramatically above the treetops to capture views of the surrounding gardens and the skyline beyond. Characterized by clean lines, sheer glass walls, and sculptural sun shades, this sharply-detailed house offers an intriguing counterpoint to the tropical ambiance of its forest-like setting.

The House of Prajna in Gyeonggi-do, South Korea by studio_GAON

Friday, April 28th, 2017

Article source: studio_GAON

<The House of Prajna> seems like a vessel heading for the woods, embraced by the forest, with the pentagon shape of building site reminding of that of ship. On the bow of ship shape, a persimmon tree over hundred year old branches its arms toward the large sky with hollowed trunk.  Although this house is a result of intentional design, I feel like it is already been completed by thousands of interactions of invisible components. Every time I visit, I feel like appreciating the work of someone else’s.

Double Duplex in Toronto, Canada by Batay-Csorba Architects

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Article source: v2com

The Double Duplex was created in response to the cities growing need for alternative housing models due to the rising cost of urban real estate and the need for urban densification within Toronto’s established residential neighbourhoods. A proliferation of high and mid-rise condo’s have densified the urban core and serve as the predominant model for entry level home ownership within the city. However, very few new low rise infill models of densification or affordable living within Toronto’s sought after historic residential neighbourhoods have been developed.

IRON PORCH HOUSE in Nagykovácsi, Hungary by Földes és Társai Építésziroda

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Article source:  Földes és Társai Építésziroda

The 726 sqm site, being reminiscent of a fairy glade, is located at the northern part of Nagykovácsi.  The garden surrounded by young fruit trees and pines on three sides has idyllic atmosphere. There are cottages, some new family homes and most of all green all around. The square site is slightly sloped to the street and wide enough for a long house to fit in between its borders.  These makings suggested that the fourth side of the garden should be closed by the house itself creating intimate atmosphere inside.

Wilson House in Chiba, Japan by Klein Dytham architecture

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Article source: Klein Dytham architecture 

Wilson House is a weekend house in a relaxed beachside town in Chiba, an hour and a half by train from Tokyo.

The house combines the aspirations of both client and architect – the client wanted the house to have a feeling of real solidity, and Klein Dytham architecture was keen to open the house to its magnificent setting. In meeting these two goals, KDa found inspiration in the wooden platform trays – called sanbo – found in Japan’s Shinto temples. These small trays have a built-in stand, and are used in Shinto rituals to present offerings of food or other special items to the enshrined gods. KDa reinterpreted this form as a building with a solid base – two heavy walls of concrete supporting a concrete tray. Arranged on this tray is the “offering” – a variety of lightweight, wooden-framed boxes.

House with Gardens and Roofs in Hamamatsu, Japan by ARII IRIE Architects

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Article source: ARII IRIE Architects

The house is located in Hamamatsu, a city located on the southern coast of Central Japan, known for its warm climate. The house is a detached extension of an existing house built in 1983. Our aim was to create a whole, old and new altogether rather than emphasizing the contrast between the two. Linear volumes stretching in the east-west direction, spread over the site leaving spaces in between, which are terraces and gardens. The group of roofs of the new volumes relate to that of the existing house, creating a sense of continuation between old and new.
