Moire Moire Moire : : 3 mews Houses in Dublin, Ireland by ODOS architects

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

Article source: ODOS architects

The site for these three mews dwellings is located on an industrial lane way in Dublin 8, previously devoid of domestic life. This industrial setting was instrumental in informing the architectural language of these dwellings. From the outside, the three dwellings appear as a mysterious, robust and impenetrable mass. The cantilevered upper section is a composition of powder coated metal industrial flooring planks arranged in a structural steel frame. These voile like planks have been laid out in varying widths to create a rhythm to the street elevation and have been periodically doubled in depth creating a moiré or interference pattern.

Article source: Workshop 8

In February of 2010 The Housing Authority of The City of El Paso held a national design competition to help them create the “greenest affordable housing development in the country”. This 73-unit, LEED Platinum, senior housing neighborhood represents a bold new direction in affordable housing and HACEP is leading the way. The project is a mix of one and two bedroom units, nine single room occupancies (SROs), and a central, iconic community building housing office and meeting space — all of which are designed to be wheel-chair adaptable and have 100% visitability.

Housing Razgledi Perovo in Kamnik, Slovenia by Dekleva Gregoric Arhitekti (designed using AutoCAD)

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

Article source: Dekleva Gregoric Arhitekti

The houses on Perovo stand on an exposed location with an exceptional view of the Kamniško-Savinjske Alps in the background. However the view is not the only characteristic of this location, as the houses represent a dominant feature of the valley when viewed from below. Thus the architectural task at hand brings at least two important challenges. First, it is necessary to design and create a quality living environment for the future residents, and second, the project provides an opportunity to redefine the look of the settlement on Perovo which has a rather heterogeneous and inharmonious layout with its scattered individual houses.
