Modern Atrium House in Belmont, California by Klopf Architecture

Sunday, September 27th, 2015

Article source: Klopf Architecture

The owners, inspired by mid-century modern architecture, hired Klopf Architecture to help them decide: remodel and add to a 1940s modern house or start fresh with an Eichler-inspired 21st-Century, energy efficient, all new home that would work for their family of three. With the decision made to start over, Klopf and the owners planned a home that follows the gentle slope of the hillside while the overarching post-and-beam roof above provides an unchanging datum line. Every square foot of the house remains close to the ground creating a sense of connection with nature. The resulting increase in ceiling height with each step-down helps create the hierarchy of the public spaces (living room is tallest, then dining, then kitchen, then entry). A rational layout based on four-foot-wide beam bays brings a calm composure to the space while the central stacked stone fireplace chimney shooting up through a skylight contrasts that with some fanfare.

ANTECEDENTS

This work is the result of a process that began in 2004 with the construction of a summer house in the forest of Mar Azul.It was necessary to intervene in a territory of great scenic beauty, owner of a powerful wild presence that is gradually becoming domesticated due to the proliferation of houses with a formal search from bucolic to picturesque which in nothing refers to that environment or to this present .

Broad Street House in Suffolk, UK by Nash Baker Architects

Friday, September 25th, 2015

Article source: Nash Baker Architects

Broad Street House is new build home in Suffolk by Nash Baker Architects. The house utilises a palette of natural and traditional materials to blend with the rural street scene, and the exterior uses oak cladding and handmade bricks (both locally sourced) to blend with the architectural character of the village. To create a more distinctive look, the bricks were laid in a variation of ‘Monks bond’ using white iron-free sand for the lime mortar which was sourced from the local Wivenhoe pit.

Courtyard House in Bangalore, India by Abin Design Studio

Friday, September 25th, 2015

Article source: Abin Design Studio

We first met our client, Mr. TG Sathyanarayanan, when he lived in Thailand. He had been abroad for many years and he came across as a person updated on a modern lifestyle. When he decided to move back to India, we proposed a concept for his villa – one that was ‘rooted’ and connected to the soil. His appreciation for the same revealed to us his very Indian ethos.

Silver House in Zante Island, Greece by DWEK ARCHITECTURE + PARTNERS s.c./s.p.r.l.u.

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015

Article source: DWEK ARCHITECTURE + PARTNERS s.c./s.p.r.l.u.

Kefallinia. Cephalonia. The island was even described by Homer in ancient times. Its backbone culminates in a peak 1,628m high, in the midst of the Ionian Sea. Seen from the mainland, it surges out of the blue depths in an intense light, often coiffed with a veil of clouds. So when the opportunity arose to build a house facing this spectacle, the choice was obvious. The subject would of course be the island, framed by the house. From the initial sketches until its completion, the plans were developed around the view. From the terraces, the sitting room, the dining room, kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms, the living space was oriented towards this fascinating seascape, which the architecture emphasises, making it even more theatrical.
