Article source: Mitsuori Architects 

This sleep out is located within the grounds of a family beach retreat in a secluded coastal setting. The brief called for a family guest house to acocmodate the owner’s children and grand children.

Bazillion in Vilnius, Lithuania by YCL studio

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016

Article source: YCL studio

Old Town nooks, unexpected views, Basilian street incites for mystics and a kind of monastery austerity. The space is shared among two moods: timeless clay coolness in twilight and monochrome play of light. In the evening, the mystical hearth fire dissolves all mood contrasts and invites to rest.

Wings in Dubrovnik, Croatia by AVA – Andrea Vattovani Architecture

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016

Article source: AVA – Andrea Vattovani Architecture

This project was commissioned to us as a study by a Russian entrepreneur who worked in several countries but liked to relax in on the Adriatic see. Because of his good relationship with Austrians he decided to stay and now he is located in Vienna. Beneath his economic success, he is a man with many interests, supporter of the fine arts, especially classical music and contemporary architecture, very athletic, and very interested in technical matters. But of course the most important part of his life is his family, so he tries to spend as much time as possible with his wife and his two children. Because of his interest in architecture he came across to some of our designs in magazines and internet. He was very interested in the project we did for the Gösta Serlachius Fine Arts Foundation in Mannta, Finlanand he contacted us with the purpose of developing something on the same architectural language. He was right away impressed with the way we merge conceptual ideas into an architectural design.  After numerous talks about architectural theories and the exchange of several ideas and opinions, we were offered to create a study for a private mansion for him and his family.

Arches Boulogne in Paris, France by Antonini Darmon architectes

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016

Article source: Antonini Darmon architectes

The project B5 Boulogne is part of the urban development zone called Seguin Rives de Seine near Paris. This area was formerly home to the monumental Renault factories. As a result of the delocalization of these factories, a surface of 74 hectares has been liberated. This new area named “Macrolot B5” has been divided into seven smaller blocks distributed around a large urban garden. Seven architects were selected to design seven different buildings, organized by an urban coordinator in charge of the Macrolot B5.

Los Feliz Residence in California by Surfacedesign, Inc

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016

Article source: Surfacedesign, Inc

The Dundee Residence landscape transforms a simple pool deck and poorly maintained hillside landscape into an exuberant space for living and entertaining, and ultimately a dynamic play space for a mother (and Hollywood stylist) and her young children.  The house was built speculatively in the 1990’s and designed to mimic the steep architectural pedigrees of its international style neighbors.  Dundee sits perched high in the hills with sweeping views of Downtown Los Angeles to the South and the chaparral hills of Griffith Park to the east.  Located in hills above the Los Feliz, the neighborhood is home to actors, rockstars and Hollywood elite and to some of LA’s most significant architecture, including Frank Llloyd Wright’s Ennis-Brown House and Richard Neutra’s Lovell Health House.

NAXOS BUILDING in Frankfurt, Germany by STEFAN FORSTER ARCHITEKTEN

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

Article source: STEFAN FORSTER ARCHITEKTEN

In the middle of Frankfurt´s Nordend district, this new residential block was built to passive house standards on the site of a former Naxos-Union factory. Retaining and integrating the distinctive trees along Wingertstrasse was an important part of the design considerations: the comb-like structure of the complex on this side, with its broad area of green in front of the apartments, is a direct response to this situation. The private gardens of the ground-floor apartments are located in the five courtyards. The back of the complex is oriented towards the listed Naxoshalle, the last remaining relic from the site´s former industrial use. On the corner of Wingertstrasse and Wittelsbacherallee the block is finished off conventionally with a corner tower. The continuous clinker cladding on the ground floor strengthens the ensemble character and is also a reference to its urban context. All the dual-aspect apartments have large loggias to the front and to the rear. In total 69 freehold and 47 rental apartments were built here to the passive house standard.

Team Living House in Tokyo, Japan by Masatoshi Hirai Architects Atelier

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

Article source: Masatoshi Hirai Architects Atelier

This is a renovation project of an apartment in downtown Tokyo. The client said unintentionally that they want to spend a brilliant time together nowhere else but in their house. Then I thought, “Indeed”. I always find that houses around us are way too far from the reality of each family life and communities, and they all look alike. It seems as if there were no identity in family life, which is ridiculous.

Medlin Residence in Raleigh, North Carolina by in situ studio

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

Article source: in situ studio

Our clients wanted a four-bedroom house with large public spaces that would open onto a constrained suburban site near downtown Raleigh. The existing site was long north to south and sloped down to the street on the north side. A stream bisected the site near the street, and the associated floodplain precluded construction on the front half of the property. A dramatic slope at the rear of the site prevented locating the house far back on the property. Our response to these constraints was a compact, two-story “L” that creates an private outdoor space between the house and the hillside.
