Casa SE in Jalisco, México by Elías Rizo Arquitectos

Friday, May 20th, 2016

Article source: Elías Rizo Arquitectos 

Casa SE was built in a traditionally residential quarter located in the western parts of Guadalajara. It was commissioned as a permanent home for a family of 4 adults. The primordial drive behind the project was to create comfortable spaces and to allow them to establish their own dialogue with the outside through a series of private terraces. The program is accommodated in two levels, with the first floor encompassing the public areas of the house, and the second floor containing the dormitories and various terraces. The prevalence of windows throughout the envelope allows a great deal of daylight to flood the interiors.

In the 1980’s my then 94 year old cousin on paying a visit to a 1970’s development in Pagham, West Sussex commented, “how do people ever find their way home; all the houses look the same”.  I was at a loss to provide him with a rational answer.

House In The Mountain in Colombia by Conecta Arquitectos

Wednesday, May 18th, 2016

Article source: Conecta Arquitectos

Given the dramatic landscape canyon of Rio Bogota and as a way to ensure the fluidity and continuity within the same housing, subtly challenge was implanted in the environment, appropriating the space of the barrel; for that a warp of order lines that contrast sharply with the sinuous and organic geometry of the landscape, seeking to create a fusion between the natural and the constructed between solid and liquid, closed open, inside out, filled with empty, transparent opaque is created; so that these attributes were the ingredients that allow and give the tone for the organization and materiality of the house.

Short Hills House in New Jersey by Messana O’Rorke

Wednesday, May 18th, 2016

Article source: Messana O’Rorke

The existing house is a picturesque 1920’s suburban house set on a leafy knoll next to a pond; its high gables and leaded windows further enhance the Grimes fairy tale image. As in most fairy tales there was a down side, the kitchen was a cramped dark space with failing fixtures, ugly cabinetry and cracked floor tiles. Initially the client had imagined renovating the kitchen and adding a sunroom. This option proved to be impractical as the only sympathetic site to add on to the house was on the North facade, so we suggested that the existing kitchen should be converted into a den and a new addition on the North facade should contain the kitchen.

Pitch-Gable House in London, England by Paul McAneary Architects

Sunday, May 15th, 2016

Article source: Paul McAneary Architects

On a complex corner site in a London conservation area, the largest ‘pitched gable’ house form’s volume is intersected by two smaller house forms at non-orthogonal angles. Gutters and utilities are hidden, providing a clean lined exterior. Frameless windows are kept to a minimum on the street side, opening up at the rear for a large light filled living space. The design offers a bold response to the need for sustainable living. The house will boast excellent eco credentials using Passivhaus principles, incorporating solar panels, a ground source heat pump, maximum insulation and grey water recycling; whilst technological features work in tandem with the carbon neutral natural building materials. Paul McAneary Architects have re-interpreted the traditional house volume to create a new architectural formal typology.
