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.

Redondo Building in Coimbra, Portugal by João Branco e Paula del Rio, Arquitectos

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

Article source: João Branco e Paula del Rio, Arquitectos

The “Redondo” is the last of a row of four buildings built at the beginning of the 20th century in the center of Coimbra. Its cylindrical shape responds to the oblique cross between two streets, and gives the building a certain singularity and its name. The original organization in two independent houses: an apartment on the ground floor and a house with two floors and garret on the upper level, was maintained.

Slice House in Al-Adiliyah, Kuwait by ALHUMAIDHI ARCHITECTS

Thursday, June 21st, 2018


The project is located in Al-Adiliyah, Kuwait with a plot area of 1000 m2. The rectangular plot has neighbors to the east and south in addition to a pedestrian alley way along its longer northern edge. The shorter street frontage on the western side benefits from a community garden across the street. The massing looks like a slice of cake- a triangular wedge inserted into the plot and angled to maximize privacy away from neighbors to the east and from across the pedestrian alley on its northern edge. The angled edge also subtly orients the homes views and main frontage towards the garden across the street.

Cliff House in Auckland, New Zealand by Leuschke Kahn Architects Limited

Thursday, June 21st, 2018

Article source: Leuschke Kahn Architects Limited

The design of this home was a direct response to its site, being south facing and on a steep bluff overlooking Hobson Bay, a city fringe suburb of Auckland, New Zealand. “It had great views back to the city, and my client asked to be able to stand in her kitchen and see the Sky Tower,” says architect, Paul Leuschke. The issue was there was no building platform.

“It was a delicate exercise in making the most of a not-so-favourable site facing the wrong way [for the sun] and on a cliff, plus achieving a degree of separation from its neighbours.” says the architect.

La casa di Chiara e Stefano in Varese, Italy by duearchitetti

Thursday, June 21st, 2018

Article source: duearchitetti

The house is located in a scenically privileged position, high on a hillside in a residential settlement in which a small church also is a part.

The dominant view and an excellent south-west exposure are a tangible presence in every space of the house.

We have been working on a project maintaining the originally thought out architectural concept including two levels in order to adapt the design to the steep slope of the ground. The lower level presents a longitudinal and hypogean development integrated in the hillside as a natural stone terrace. Here you will find bedrooms, studio and fitness zone.

Article source: Shanghai HuaDu Architecture and Urban Design Group (HDD) 

Background of the project

The project is located in Pudong, Shanghai. It is the basement of a typical Shanghai old mansion in the 90’s. It has all the typical features of Shanghai’s “Old and Small”. In addition to the two mothers and sons, the owner has 40 cats and 2 dogs. Everyone is crowded together to live in this 48m2 ground floor space. The entire space is full of cages, and human space is backlogged by extreme limits. This has also caused The contradiction between mother and son arises. At the same time, due to the high density of human pets, the light is dim, and various smells are mixed together, making the air quality very poor, and the health conditions are very embarrassing.
