Article source: Pereira Miguel Arquitectos

A Lisbon couple sets off into a real estate adventure and purchases, with an impulse, a small plot with four ruins in the middle of Alentejo called Moinho do Barroco (Barroco’s Water Mill).

Eaves Around House in Kyoto, Japan by y+M design office

Thursday, September 10th, 2015

Article source: y+M design office

The house is for a family of four, married couple and their children.

Their parents’ house is located on the north side of their ground. So we arranged their low-rise house on the south side. The arrangement provides an open space which ensures adequate insolation and ventilation against the parents’ house. The open space is also used for easy communication with the parents and it keeps good relation among them.

House in Pakse, Laos by Makoto Yamaguchi Design

Thursday, September 10th, 2015

Article source: Makoto Yamaguchi Design

The project site is located in the town of Pakse, Laos, on an estate overlooking the Mekong River. It is one of the three huge buildings of classical European style, which had been designed and built a few years ago by a Thai architect as the residence for a certain family. The subject building was for the daughter of the family, our client, who requested that we provide the interior design for her residence. She wished for a contemporary and simple motif in contrast with the exterior.

LOW BUDGET BRICK HOUSE in Bisamberg, Austria by TRIENDL UND FESSLER ARCHITEKTEN ZT OG

Wednesday, September 9th, 2015

Article source: TRIENDL UND FESSLER ARCHITEKTEN ZT OG

The clients wished for an inexpensive house with a maximum of spatial qualities. The volume was conceived as a introverted courtyard typology, responding to local development structures. The shut roadside facade expresses the desire for a private retreat on the outskirts of Vienna. The L – shaped floor plan offers diverse spatial relationships and creates an exciting space continuum around the patio together with garage and workshop. The double high kitchen forms the heart of the house and the covered terrace forms its generous continuation to the outside. The workshop may be expanded to a small apartment in connection with the upper floor. The monolitic structure consists of 50 cm thick monolithic brick walls and ensures an optimal indoor climate without additional insulation.
