Shad Row by Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects

Saturday, April 18th, 2015

Article source: Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects

The property, situated just beyond the ocean dunes, was purchased with a partial foundation and permits in place for a traditional, shingle style residence. The owner presented us with the challenge of designing a modern residence, which thoroughly integrated the indoor and outdoor spaces, for their family of four on exactly the permitted building footprint.

Cross-Laminated-Timber Cottage in Ladysmith, Quebec by Kariouk Associates

Thursday, April 16th, 2015

Article source: Kariouk Associates

The site for this project is a remote, private lake beside which for more than seventy years existed a family’s cottage.  When the land passed from mother to son, the decision was made to reinvigorate the home; ultimately, because the home had already reached such an advanced state of decay, it was decided to have it removed and to build a new cottage. For sentimental reasons, the new home was to be the exact dimensions of the former and it was to sit in the exact same location.  Aside from those requirements though, a far more open spatial arrangement was desired.  The cottage was only intended for three-season use (the Manhattan couple for whom this was being built intended to spend winters in warmer climates).  The house design was simplified because significant insulation was not required, however, construction intentions were complicated by the fact that the remote location meant that the cost of labor “commuting” from the city would be extremely costly.

DI HOUSE in Pula, Croatia by Ekokoncept d.o.o.

Wednesday, April 15th, 2015

Article source: Ekokoncept d.o.o.

This low-energy Mediterranean beauty is a family residence on the outskirts of Pula. The beautiful green surroundings and slightly elevated plot serve as a fantastic curtain for the modern cube the architect Tomaž Noč designed for the family. The plot was originally fenced with an old stone wall which was carefully disassembled in the beginning of the construction. The stones were then reassembled into a higher wall which serves as the backbone of the building, beginning at the pool area outside and then penetrating into the house acting as the support wall for the stairs in the living room.

Hellen Panorama in Eidsvåg, Norway by LINK arkitektur

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015

Article source: LINK arkitektur

In 1989, Vestbo, a local housing cooperation acquired a stunning site 10 minutes north from Bergen.

The plot is up in the hillside and has spectacular views over the fjord leading into the Bergen harbor.

Vestbo developed most of the land before the year 2000, but one plot had been preserved due to a high power line above that went over it and made it uninhabitable due to electrical radiation, In 2008 the power company dismantled the power line and put it underground. Suddenly the possibility for a new housing development arose.

Clefs Moiré by Radlab

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015

Article source: Radlab

With the provision of a casual description and partial floor plan of the residential building’s lobby and adjacent networking cafe, Radlab was asked to create an interior installation composed of two slatted walls. Knowing the dimensional constraints of the walls (8’ tall x 14’ long), our design strategy began with a preoccupation in the role of a wall as an architectural tool, fully circumscribed by open, public space, yet capable of creating moments of privacy.

Sin El Fil in Beirut, Lebanon by SOMA Architects

Thursday, April 9th, 2015

Article source: SOMA Architects

The three volumes of the mixed use compound are situated in Sin el Fil, Lebanon, near an important junction of highways and major roadways to the East of Beirut. The site also provides panoramic views toward the center of Beirut to the East and to the mountains to the West. In order to take advantage of this unique location, and the panoramic views, the project is conceived as three volumes arrayed about a central focal point in the center of the site. Each volume is in turn chamfered toward the outside, creating terraces toward their respective views, while on the ground floor, the buildings chamfer in, creating impressive cantilevers and freeing up large areas of outdoor space. The building directly along the highway serves as an office tower with a large retail base extending along the highway, while the other two buildings provide apartments. This positioning creates three basic outdoor spaces: one for a public drop odd, one for a private drop off, and a third used as a playground and collective garden space.
