Son Ganxo House in Spain by Sio2 arch

Tuesday, May 29th, 2018

Article source: Sio2 arch

This house belongs to a set of projects developed by Sio2 that reformulates the type of the single family house through landscape integration. In these works, we experimented with roofs as organizing systems and we avoided the traditional role of facades as compositional mechanisms.

Article source: SAOTA

True-to-form, easy-living South African holiday home.

Perched on the banks of the Buffels River, close to its mouth in Pringle Bay – a small coastal town less than 100km from Cape Town, South Africa – this house has an easy living permanence that shakes off the salty winds and lets in the sun and the natural beauty of the surrounding indigenous vegetation and mountain valley.

Busan Times in South Korea by Moon Hoon

Monday, May 28th, 2018

Article source: Moon Hoon

Although I am afraid that if I call it the owl, it will continue going by this nickname and it will be regarded within this context, I would nevertheless like to call it the owl. If you look at the building from the roadside, you may associate the shape formed by the angles of the setback regulation that has now been abolished with big head and two eyes.

Floating House in Vancouver, Canada by ARNO MATIS ARCHITECTURE INC

Monday, May 28th, 2018


Floating house captures Vancouver’s “West Coast Fusion”: a contemporary mix of eastern and western influences fused with indoor/outdoor living. This highly innovative private residence designed by Arno Matis breaks new ground with an architectural concrete envelope that uses a completely unique white concrete mix custom developed exclusively for the project. The composition appears to float on a large reflecting pool set within an oriental garden setting. Large expanses of glazing and sliding doors are framed in mahogany and screened with a dynamic architectural wood screen. The interiors flow with cascading floor slabs and dramatic volumes as unnecessary partitions are removed to create interior ‘exhibition’ spaces. The minimalist interior finishing details include stone slab floors, a suspended main stair of steel and hardwood; floating ceilings; and suspended custom fireplace, including a glowing onyx fireplace feature in the Master bedroom.

Urban Dock in Bordeaux, France by Hamonic + Masson & Associés

Monday, May 28th, 2018

Article source: Hamonic + Masson & Associés

The Bassins à flots are a 162 ha niche site, a high-quality port and manufacturing district for which Bordeaux City Council has development plans. Nicolas Michelin’s instructions are to create a link between the site and the horizon and to build on the metaphor of the factory, warehouses and the navy.

Our project is very industrial in that it is solid, compact and metal-clad. There is the occasional raised element, one 9-storey building jutting up like a periscope. That is what the project is all about: putting together a serene skyline and creating an urban form similar to a village at ground level, with footpaths to maintain a feeling of wilderness.

Jungle House in São Paulo, Brazil by Studio mk27

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

Article source: Studio mk27

The project is located on the paulista shore in the region of the Rain Forest and the land has a mountainous topography with dense vegetation. The introduction of this house to this landscape has the objective of optimizing the connection between architecture and nature, privileging the view looking out to the ocean and the incidence of sunlight in the internal spaces.  Furthermore, the positioning of the house on the site obeyed the previously-open area in the vegetation.

House In Rua Do Paraíso, Portugal by fala atelier

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

Article source: fala atelier

A bourgeois 19th century single family house was to be divided into a series of identical studio apartments: four living spaces, some circulation areas and a private backyard. The project happens within a given system of constraints, aiming at an unexpected complexity, finding a certain interest within a very banal set of programs.

Castagnola in Lugano, Switzerland by HERZOG & DE MEURON

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

Article source: HERZOG & DE MEURON 

The well-preserved gardens of the 17th century Villa Favorita, lining the shores of Lake Lugano at the foot of Monte Bré, are of great historical significance. The 13 romanticist buildings situated in the gardens were erected between 1687 and 1932. Their historicizing style is characteristic of Ticino architecture and, in fact, generally of the villas on the lake shores of northern Italy. Originally, the Villa Favorita was a freestanding, single ensemble of buildings between Lugano and Castagnola. Today it is surrounded by modernist blocks of housing from the second half of the 20th century. This modern architecture, is also a typical Ticino style, that emerged in response to the appeal of the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland as a second home and a financial center.

Bookshelf House in Yokohama, Japan by Shinsuke Fujii Architects

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

Article source: Shinsuke Fujii Architects 

By making the wall diagonal, a new easy-to-use bookshelf integrated with the building was born.  Because all the shelves of the bookshelf are inclined, children, women and old people can easily climb without a ladder, and books of high position can be easily taken out and put in. In addition books don’t collapse when an earthquake occurs.
