House in Ramat Gan, Israel by Ella Sahar Architecture & Interior Design

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Article source: Ella Sahar Architecture & Interior Design 

In the cube-shaped family home there is a striking interplay between open and closed spaces, the private and public domain, and light and darkness. The origin of this harmonious duality lies in the starting point of the planning process – the cube. Structurally, the cube is closed and confined; but when fused with other cubes, a new, dynamic shape emerges.

Amélia’s House in Ílhavo, Portugal by m2.senos

Friday, June 24th, 2016

Article source: m2.senos

This is not just another house. Those alleys were well known to us. Not that much…we used to run endlessly over there, always waiting for someone to invite us to dinner. It was always too early to end the day. And that was the house of Aunt Amelia. Built by only one man, that used to show us a smile of pride and some benevolence, the perfect stereotomy of the stone cladding. To us, that has so much to learn and fancy about building. This was not just another house.

Pond Street in Hampstead, England by Belsize Architects

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016

Article source: Goodfellow Communications

This extension and remodeling of a Grade II listed Georgian town house by Belsize Architects rejects a traditional brick extension in favour of a more contemporary design, thereby providing greater interest and allowing the extension to read clearly as a separate yet sympathetic addition.

Bare minimalist in Jakarta, Indonesia by RAW Architecture

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016

Article source: RAW Architecture

“I want a house. A house to live in, not a scene to look at,” writes homeowner Charles Wiriawan in one of his blog posts. Situated in the increasingly crowded West Jakarta are, the 159 sqm house occupies a 196 sqm plot of land. Size-wise it is inconspicuous, but its exposed concrete facade gives it a distinctive look. The architecture of Bare Minimalist blocked the heat by completely walling off the west side of the house while opening the rest to let air and light in. The house has no receiving area, no wall, and no living room. In their stead is a spacious lounge. ” After the lounge, the kitchen also takes some importance its final layout is the result of few adjustments based on the owner’s domestic habits. The only enclosed space in the first story is Wiriawan’s study, which doubles as a home theater. A simple foyer and a light well with generous footwear storage- guests are to take off and store theirs there before entering-precede the lounging area. The second story houses private spaces. At the end of the corridor is a 5 x 6 sqm master bedroom equipped with en suite bathroom and a walk-in closet. An outdoor showering area is attached to the bathroom, while the door connecting its indoor and out door area is made of clear glass.An additional bedroom, bathroom and a multi function room linked by a corridor leading to an open space beside the void leading o the stairwell and stair case, a pretty bow to knot the horizontal and vertical circulations together. The project installed a drinkable water tap in this open space. While pure, safe to drink tap water is increasingly common in some countries, it is still a rare, exceptional facility in Indonesia, one that this project was determined to have in this home.

The Crossing in Auckland, New Zealand by Studio2 Architects

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

Article source: Studio2 Architects

The Crossing is a private home built on the original cattle tablelands overlooking Pakiri Beach.

The house fuses together a limited material palette of concrete, blue steel, and oiled cedar into a bold and incredibly dynamic space, allowing the owner (a professional writer) genuine flexibility to entertain, while acknowledging the need for the relative solitude of a working studio space.

The architect’s inspiration came from the reclaimed eucalyptus wood of the “bateas”. These are the mussel production platforms that you see in the estuary and that constitute one of the most important local industry in “Ria da Arousa”, Spain. Eucalyptus wood is used in these platforms, and there are great extensions of this tree in the region.
