Concrete Slit House in Nanjing, China by AZL architects

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

Article source: AZL architects

Slit House is a contemporary concrete residence enmeshed within a quiet Kuomingtang-era neighborhood in central Nanjing. The entire structure and roof are made from concrete pressed into a custom mould, handmade from five-centimetre horizontal wood strips to remain in scale with the adjacent century-old brick buildings. The slit in the concrete creates transparency as it responds to interior circulation, and provides different programmes with differing interior heights & elevations, thus crates in upper bedrooms half floor volume shifting for its privacy. The living room spans over two stories, the dining area extends over one and half levels, and remaining bedrooms and studies occupy single storey spaces.

The Folding House in Chile by B+V Arquitectura

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

Article source: B+V Arquitectura 

The project is located near Lake Rapel, on a site of 896.5 sqm. This is characterized by a privileged view of the lake and a strong slope in most of its development. The budget forces to minimize the intervention in the slope, containing the largest amount of program in the minimum of flat space available at the beginning of the site. This, together with the high temperatures presented by Rapel’s microclimate in summer, implies the following problems: high program density, excessive solar radiation and lack of comfortable space for recreation.

The Idea

To create such an architectural character, which is clear, unique, in harmony to the landscape, preserves and highlights the natural surroundings, and the nature itself.

Integration to the environment

The place of the house in the quarter: the angular, square-shaped land plot which starts the row of villas emphasised with a small-volume turning, it maintains the line of the built-up area.

High Meadow Dwellings at Fallingwater in Pennsylvania by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

Article source: Bohlin Cywinski Jackson 

Located on a historic farm adjacent to Frank Lloyd Wright’s renowned Fallingwater residence, High Meadow serves as home base for students of Fallingwater Institute’s summer residency programs in architecture, art, and design.

Positioned between forest and field, four modest dwellings with simple wood interiors and framed vistas of the surrounding hilltops rest lightly above ground on a network of nimble steel columns and delicate tectonics, imparting minimal disturbance to the site. An angled shroud at the end of each unit catches cool breezes rising up from the valley floor below and shields the naturally ventilated rooms from the summer sun. Screened entry doors allow for additional airflow and connect the units to a covered walkway.

Common Ground in Seoul, South Korea by URBANTAINER

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

Article source: URBANTAINER

Common Ground is the result of an experiment of revitalising unused land in the middle of the city. By applying prefab methods, e.g. producing modules in a factory, transporting them to the construction site and assembling them on-site, it was possible to reduce the construction time of the 5300 m2 building to five months.

In order to maximise the usage efficiency of the elongated rectangular shaped land, the architectural form is based on a center square connecting two buildings.

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

Article source: Carolina Pedroni + Delfina Riverti + Miguel Rossi

The house is situated on a high point of the terrain, surrounded by a number of large pine trees.

The abrupt shoulder towards the street is taken advantage of for the access to the house. A set of outdoor stairs connects to the high level of the garden, turning it into the new zero.

Oak Pass House in Beverly Hills, California by Walker Workshop

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

Article source: v2com

The Oak Pass Main House sits atop a 3.5-acre ridge site with panoramic canyon views. The property’s topography and landscape, which most notably include over 130 protected Coast Live Oak Trees, were the primary drivers for the house’s design. In order to showcase and amplify the site’s inherent beauty, the house’s mass is buried into the hillside, with only a one-story pavilion above grade as it unfolds along the ridge.
