Cherry Blossom House in Black Forest, Germany by Uber Raum Architects

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

Article source: Uber Raum Architects

This award-winning family home is situated close to Strasbourg, in a village famous for its cherry trees and cherry schnapps. Presented with a naturally beautiful site, and constrained by a modest budget, we resolved to design a building that engaged with its natural environment. The house is highly methodical in its plan, and dramatically augmented by the selective framing of views.

JORDI AND ÀFRICA’S HOME in Montuïri, Spain by TEd’A arquitectes

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

Article source: TEd’A arquitectes

The house is located on a plot, not very large. This situation invites to compact the house on one side, continuing the alignment of the street façade while maximizing the patio with good solar exposure.

The house occupies a corner plot. For this reason, instead of adopting the usual uni-directional organization (street-patio), of houses between medians, the proposal is organized in two perpendicular directions. The house does not have a dominant direction. The house wants to look in all directions.

“Kyoku” – Bridge House in Japan by ArchiBlur Lab

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

Article source: ArchiBlur Lab

Weight can be felt, but does feeling have weight? The strength of thought in tugging out the tension at the threshold between matter and imagination, for creators, is to return to the nature of architecture and practice its uniquely creative energy.

This creator begins by developing three concepts relating to weight to describe and develop the materiality and spatial characteristics they present. These three starting points act between nature and artificiality, and provide feeling with different layers of weight sense.

Infiniski Menta House in Reus, Spain by James & Mau

Tuesday, July 5th, 2016

Article source: James & Mau

The house of 100 m2 is designed in the shape of a cube organized on one level, including a central living area with an open kitchen, 2 rooms and a common bathroom.

Located in the country side of the Tarragona Province, the project was thought of as a weekend house, which needed to be easy to use, efficient and which would take full advantage of its natural surroundings.  The house was designed as a “living Box” which can be “opened”, “closed”, “switched on” “heated”, “cooled down” efficiently, easily and rapidly. The house is designed as a cube – rational and functional – where the transition between exterior and interior areas is as fluid as possible.

Tarifa House in Province Cadiz, Spain by James & Mau

Tuesday, July 5th, 2016

Article source: James & Mau

The terrain is located on a slope looking at the valley that dominates the Strait of the Gibraltar. The climate is Mediterranean with hot summers and soft winters, both humid, and very much influenced by the strong winds of Tarifa. The vernacular architecture of Andalusian “pueblos blancos”* with its patios and narrow streets reflects how the local building style adapts to the climate. Finally, the client expected us to propose to him not just a mere residential house but a complex area that would permit the development of several indoor and outdoor activities.As a result we proposed to condensate a “pueblo” on 300 m2 and turn it into a contemporary “cortijo”.  The rules that determine the design are the same as the ones behind its inspiring prototypes.

Saturday, July 2nd, 2016

Article source: Bora Architects

Perched above the beach at the edge of the tree line, this vacation home allows the dramatic Oregon Coast to take center stage. The design maintains sightlines from the sheltered forest to the open coastline with a minimal structure of glass and steel. Atop the two-story, transparent box, the copper-clad green roof is an elevated slab of native ferns and grasses.
