Pine Tree in Miami, Florida by SAOTA

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018

Article source: SAOTA

Layered views and blurring edges

Open plan living and the ability to live in and through your home has inspired this transparent and easy-living family home.  Set between the Indian Creek Canal and Pine Tree Drive in Miami’s historic Collin’s Waterfront district, the SAOTA-designed space is expansive and fluid – opening up to the activity of the canal when desired, or contained when privacy is needed.

Set on a strongly linear proportioned site, the building is porous, bringing the landscape and water bodies into the interior of the house to create a greater sense of space.

CASA HERMI-La casa de las veintiuna ventanas in Sagunto, Spain by Estudio IGLOO

Monday, June 25th, 2018

Article source: Estudio IGLOO

The idea is to transform the archetypal and insubstantial housing scheme with a central patio and two facades into a more open and flexible one, based on the succession of spaces qualified by movement and light.

The house will be inhabited by a single person, therefore, we apply the concept of simultaneity of use and spatial efficiency.

Viale Abruzzi Apartment in Milan, Italy by NOMADE ARCHITETTURA AND INTERIOR DESIGN

Sunday, June 24th, 2018


Renovation of a ’30s apartment for a young couple.

The project is an interpretation in a more fresh and contemporary key of the ’30s mood , which shines through in some obvious traces recovered from the apartment.

The living area is large and combines the kitchen, dining room and living room, a game of light and colors creates a very cool and friendly atmosphere.

The bathrooms (his and hers) are the two faces of a retro-style classic for her, for him more industrial.

House in Laax, Switzerland by VALERIO OLGIATI

Sunday, June 24th, 2018

Article source: VALERIO OLGIATI 

The single-family house rises from a 10-20m wide and 90m long lot in Laax, Switzerland. Local building legislation only permitted the construction of volumes aboveground at opposite ends of the property. One end of the area is situated in the “village zone”, while an “agricultural zone” surrounds the other end. Two completely opposite worlds form the context of this house.

Housing developments and family member

The site of this house was a housing development  which have passed around 40 years since the area had stared selling. There are over 400 numbers of houses but they have no value as a property and people who are living in are not so young anymore. The demands of client are an over 330 square meter land space and enough distances from neighbors for a better privacy. Then the site was thought as the better conditions because of the low price of land and the density of the development.
