House D10 in Ulm, Germany by Werner Sobek Group GmbH

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

Article source: Werner Sobek Group GmbH

D10 is a single-storey one-family home built in an established residential area. A private driveway provides access to the house. Two parallel shear walls are a distinguishing feature of the building. Generously designed glazing serves to provide a spatial enclosure. Protected by an extensively projecting flat roof a generously sized patio encircling the house serves to unite the indoor space with the outdoor space. Access to the building is also gained via this patio.

New Kyoto Town House 2 in Japan by ALPHAVILLE architects

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

Article source: ALPHAVILLE architects

The current wooden house system based on bearing wall calculation hardly fits in with the ‘eel’s bed’ or the elongated housing lots typical of Kyoto, an old capital of Japan. While the width of lots has been segmentalized  to provide minimal daylight, ventilation and access over a long period of time, the only option today of opening up the frontage is either steel structure or specialized wooden frame structure.

House Architecture Rifa G’07 in Punta del Este, Uruguay by Martinez/Rudolph Architects

Friday, June 17th, 2016

Article source: Martinez/Rudolph Architects

Which are the limits of the traditional housing protocol? The project is a specialized mediation mechanism between the ideas and the built reality.

Adaptability is searched in a realistic path, without sacrificing necessary explorations, not as an emulation of flexibility, but as a neutral inhabit platform. Multiple appropriations, rather than an options menu. Assuming an array of predictions for an undefined user seems an infertile path. Consequently, the disposition of inhabitable spaces can establish specific uses, as well as integrate or fuse with the exterior built spaces, circulations and green areas. This vectors suggest expansion possibilities according to the interests of the diverse inhabitants. The composition logic allows, in all cases, to increase the buildable space, from the public areas to the private space and in correspondence with the free terrain.

House with a Peristyle in Kharkiv, Ukraine by Drozdov&Partners

Friday, June 17th, 2016

Article source: Drozdov&Partners

The house is located on a clearing in the middle of the homogeneous oak-tree forest, with all the premises exposed to the natural surrounding with their outer contour.

The peristyle comes as an antithesis to this uniform context. Is closed courtyard unites and brings together all the functional zones of the house.

Makuc House in Chiloé, Chile by OruzarGebauer Architects

Friday, June 17th, 2016

Article source: OruzarGebauer Architects

This project is located in the north of the big island of Chiloé, in an area called Huei hue, where the sea penetrates the land as a stretchmark, weaving a close relationship between land and sea.

The terrain is located in a sort of a peninsula from where it strategically dominates the relations with its surroundings: on the one hand, the inland entries of the sea that come from this arm, and on the other hand the immeasurable Gulf of Ancud, having as its backdrop the detachment of the Andes and its volcanoes, generously receiving the light from the east, north and west, and thus exposing itself incidentally to the strong winds and rain coming from the northwest.

Haus im Allgäu in Germany by studioeuropa

Friday, June 17th, 2016

Article source: studioeuropa

An extremely narrow, long site amidst the farmhouses of an old bavarian village: a challenge to organize a barrierfree, compact, and energy efficient house, that blends well into its rural neighbourhood. Despite the site‘s small size and difficult proportions, a peaceful house stretching far into the garden was created.

MIKAELA HOUSE in Navarra, Spain by Francisco Mangado

Thursday, June 16th, 2016

Article source:Francisco Mangado

Gorraiz, on the outskirts of Pamplona, is a recently developed upscale residential area whose architectures draw inspiration mainly from those of the past. Rare here are the houses with an autonomous and contemporary design. The only peculiarity of the plot where this house rises is its elevated position, affording views onto the golf courses of the lower part of the housing development. The design scheme starts from an abstract interpretation of the urban codes, by which at least 60% of the roof must have at least a 35% slope. Understood in strictly geometric and abstract terms, the codes define a section where exactly 60% of its linear progress must have a 35% slope, the remaining 40% of the roof being almost flat. With this initial section, the project attempts to make the most of the features of the resulting volume. The higher level contains the living areas, whereas the bedrooms and indoor swimming pool are beneath the flat part of the roof. A series of incisions articulate the different areas of the house and bring natural light into those that are farther apart from the perimeter, the largest of which is a courtyard that goes all the way down to the basement.
