House Stein in Druxberge, Germany by Jan Rösler Architekten

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

Article source: Jan Rösler Architekten 

“Haus Stein” is the result of the conversion of an unused barn from the 1930’s into a holiday home. The particular character of the barn in its rural setting was preserved through minimal interventions on its outer shell. In the absence of its users, the building’s new function remains concealed. It is only when the wooden shutters and doors are open that the striking contrast between a clean and rigorous inner organisation and the raw facades reveals the new purpose of the building.

Lantern Ridge House in Kerhonkson, New York by Studio MM Architect

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

Article source: Studio MM Architect

Perched at the top of a wooded knoll in the Hudson Valley, the Lantern Ridge House accentuates mountain views while camouflaging itself in the densely forested environment. At night, the typically obscured house becomes a beacon for passing cars and a guiding light for our homeward-bound clients. The home is focused on a single gathering space through which the 2,200 SF structure becomes at once intimate and expansive, private and public. Oriented to face both sunrise and sunset, this hinge point is created by the convergence of two private wings that contain separated accommodations for our clients and their guests. A continuous wood ceiling shelters an exterior deck and the glass façade, which focuses expansive views, connects the clients with the immediate natural environment, and provides a consistently sunlit space.

Vacation Home in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia by Prima d.o.o. architects

Wednesday, April 27th, 2016

Article source: Prima d.o.o. architects

The approach to the project was defined by steep terrain and by the magnificent views that the site offered.  The design follows those two main characteristics first positioning and second by opening of the living quarters towards the south (views towards the mountains) with large glass walls (windows) and with exits on both sides of the house. These smaller more secluded exterior spaces can be used accordingly depending on the hour of the day, the season, wind…etc.

Bay House in California by Razvan Barsan + Partners

Wednesday, April 27th, 2016

Article source: Razvan Barsan + Partners 

Located on a remote beach, the ruins of a former industrial site inspired us to create a sea-side house inspired by the industrial era.  Reviving the existing layout has been one of our main concerns while trying to integrate the residential function into the industrial setting with its ragged appearance. However, fitting the new building into the amazing surrounding and making the best of the views it has to offer led us through the design process.
