Troll Hus in Norden, California by Mork-Ulnes Architects

Saturday, May 21st, 2016

Article source: Mork-Ulnes Architects

The concept

Tucked away in the mountains and nestled into a high alpine forest, the design responds to the owners’ desire for a modernist, rather secluded refuge with a constant visual reference to nature. The site is, in this sense, rather atypical to a mountain setting in that it minimizes expansive lookouts, while in fact emphasizing views towards the glade intimacy of the adjacent landscape, thus allowing for the remote and sheltered retreat the clients were seeking.

Art in every aspect of space in Athens, Greece by Golden Ratio Collective Architecture

Friday, May 20th, 2016

Article source: Golden Ratio Collective Architecture

In the region of Kifissia, a three-storey house is renovated and decorated proposing a new lifestyle. Linear blinds act as a unifying element of space, while individual functional units are formed: espresso point, breakfast, living room. Boundaries are expanding due to the view of the garden and the surrounding area, where a swimming-pool is going to be constructed. Textures, colors and shapes are being juxtaposed, creating a game of contrasts and reflections. Warm wooden textures and smooth vertical surfaces co-exist, giving space a unique identity. Horizontal leather blinds filter natural light and determine outdoor views, allowing space to evolve during the day.

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.

Conversion of disused reservoir in Maresfield, England by G M Moore & Associates

Article source: G M Moore & Associates

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.
