Surfboard House in Queens, New York by BFDO Architects

Thursday, November 23rd, 2017

Article source: v2com

Five years after Hurricane Sandy devastated the cooperative beachfront community of Breezy Point, Queens, the project built upon a lot that had been reduced to sand is complete. Houses in Breezy Point are set close together and linked by pedestrian paths; cars are confined to lots at the periphery. The client’s site was unusually wide, with 68 feet of south-facing beach frontage. Flood regulations required building at least six feet off of the ground, while co-op regulations put the maximum building height at 28 feet. The co-op also required a setback from the lot line of 32 feet at the lot’s widest point. The resulting building envelope was much shallower than wide, allowing nearly every room to have an ocean view. One of the primary design strategies was stepping the south-facing facade to allow windows to wrap corners. That created diagonal sightlines up and down the beach, framing vistas and visually expanding the interior spaces. Angled roof profiles and ceiling finishes also direct the eye upward and outward.

Bach with 2 Roofs in New Zealand by irving smith architects

Thursday, November 23rd, 2017

Article source: irving smith architects 

New Zealand was the last landmass to be inhabited, and then deforested with unrivalled speed. Its new cleared landscapes are still so young they shift, when they fail new native trees grow. It might take a hundred years or more, but buildings that participate in this shift could one day inhabit near-original forest. This is something new, for New Zealand architecture was established and has remained in clearings. To inhabit its original forest landscape, architecture must understand existing context rather than generate new landscapes, it must be soft, patient and ready to change; as we exhibited at the 2015 Prague International Architecture Festival entitled Soft-Context:Soft-Architecture.

One Storey House by irving smith architects

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

Article source: irving smith architects 

Give suburbia a view and it develops an orientation. It expects to live toward the view, not behind it, and therefore assumes life will occur at the front. But with this convention those at the back lose their privacy to the street, their view or both. That, or their house becomes two storied in a search for a view. But with a prairie-like reserve behind, and encroaching suburbia out the front, the back isn’t always such a bad place to be.  Can a one storey house not find and protect a view at the back of a subdivision?

Catalinas Houses in Córdoba, Argentina by Orange Obras Civiles

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

Article source: Orange Obras Civiles

“Casas Catalinas” are family homes located in Rio Ceballos, along the Córdoba mountain range and away from the city. They set up in 5000 square-foot lands.

The project seeks to provide home solutions to middle class young families that have access to social loans provided by the state. These 1185 square-foot houses have a limited budget and the main guidelines have to do with lively rooms, austere and detail less design, reducing construction costs.

Summer house in Veddinge Hills, Denmark by Martin Kallesø Arkitekter

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

Article source: Martin Kallesø Arkitekter

The ground lies right beside the water in the bay of Sejerø and the project’s shape is inspired by birds that fly over the bay. The building is located on the ground’s most comfortable position with regard to sun, shelter and orientation towards the water.The four main volumes make up the body of the summer cottage.They contain the guest an- nex and sauna, living room with access to the terrace, dining zone in extension of the kitchen-dining area and the master bedroom with en suite large bathroom. A glass corridor with views of both the sea and the arrival area connects the guest annex and the main building. The summer cottage is modular with a wooden structure, at roof and black, vertically-mounted pro le cladding. The at roof is coated with a green sedum roof, so that on arrival you immediately have contact with the Sejerø Bay and the horizon beyond.The terrain declines so the four main volumes are placed on the site with a facade line and garden wall that follows the lines of the terrain, while also providing natural shelter from the wind. Interior materials comprise oak parquet, design concrete ooring and a front door in solid oak.
