Villa Saxe in Paris, France by Emmanuel COMBAREL Dominique MARREC Architectes (ECDM)

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

Article source: Emmanuel COMBAREL Dominique MARREC Architectes (ECDM)

The design of our project was developed to focus on three strong intentions structured by the heirloom of this singular parcel.

Above all is the question of the garden, this protected and timeless area that we perceive, and that we will be able to make visible. This is not only to respect an urban rule by returning the same volume of soil-grown, but also to preserve the maximum of an atypical plant heritage, to free the ground as much as possible to maximize the garden, and finally to structure it in order to generate depths of field and gradations in the perception.

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

Article source: Taylor & Company

For this suburban home, Dan Brunn, AIA, principal of Dan Brunn Architecture, injected the feeling of openness and of continuum, which was of utmost importance to the clients. As a means to negate the claustrophobic spaces of their primary residence, the architect developed a language to express the free flowing nature of the design.

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

Article source: Austin Maynard Architects

In a nutshell

She’s a senior executive and now a new mum. For her and her newborn baby she wanted a light-filled home that could hide the mess. We gave her a floor that was a giant toy-box.

The what

Mills is an extension to a one level weatherboard terrace in Melbourne. The original facade and front 2 rooms of the terrace remain. One of those rooms has been altered to incorporate a study and a bathroom. A large lightwell separates the original structure from the new extension. The extension has two bedrooms and a bathroom above an open kitchen, living, dining space.

Mills is a complex home, full of ideas, however there are 2 core elements.

  1. The floor is a giant toy box.
  2. The rear facade filters and softens the strong sunlight that had previously dominated the backyard.

Palo Alto Eichler Remodel in CA by Klopf Architecture

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

Article source: Klopf Architecture 

Klopf Architecture updated a classic Eichler indoor-outdoor home to better suit the needs of a very busy family. The owners have two rather young kids and are also professionals with unpredictable, busy schedules. The house also had to accommodate the needs of two live-in nannies who cover for the parents when they’re indisposed. With those considerations in mind, the owners selected this house because it was larger than typical Eichlers because past additions had been already been made to the house. However, at the time of purchase the house was in poor condition and needed a complete gut remodel including all new roof, mechanical systems, and electrical, the replacement of dry-rotted siding and framing, some layout changes, and all new finishes. The house is super-insulated and has no need of air-conditioning.

A Raumplan house in MADRID, Spain by ESTUDIO ARQUITECTURA CAMPO BAEZA

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

Article source: ESTUDIO ARQUITECTURA CAMPO BAEZA 

The house is located on a sloping plot with a landscape of distant horizon none other than Madrid’s western mountain range viewed from Camarines. At ground level it doesn’t appear to be anything special, but as we go up we feast our eyes on a panoramic view of the urban landscape of the east of Madrid. From the four towers to the left to the Madrid tower to the right. Beautiful, and curious also.  Logically the more public parts of the house will be at the upper levels to frame and enjoy the stunning views.

Roncesvalles Accessible House in Toronto, Canada by Solares Architecture

Wednesday, February 10th, 2016

Article source: Solares Architecture

In 2013, a couple in their 50s, came to Solares Architecture with an important request – to transform their 1911 Toronto semi-detached home into a beautiful, modern, and, most importantly, accessible house.

In 2006, the husband and father of the household had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and was soon in need of a mobility device. Once the family began looking into buying an accessible home, they realized how few there were on the market. Usually, accessible houses are built-as-needed, and the option of buying one is hugely expensive. Even a bungalow would need major renovation work to become fully accessible. After assessing these costs, the family decided to instead renovate their existing home, bought in 1989.

Summer house Midlaren in Drenthe, Netherlands by Kwint architects

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016

Article source: Kwint architects

We were asked to design a simple summer home. The result is a straight forward house, of rich and spatial design in map and cross section. Internally, it seems entirely to consist of two separate houses, similar to a bronze sculpture of Giacometti entitled: Figure in a Box between Two Boxes which are Houses.
