Beachyhead in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa by SAOTA

Friday, July 29th, 2016

Article source: SAOTA

“The clients approached SAOTA to design a family holiday home that responded to the site, especially the views. They wanted a relaxing, yet elegant home that would be comfortable when entertaining many guests whilst also feeling intimate and cosy when it’s only one or two of them in the house,” said director and project leader Phillippe Fouché.  Other factors that drove the conceptual organisation of the building were the views, sunlight, prevailing wind direction and the zoning parameters.

Blake Street Residence in Victoria, Australia by B.E Architecture

Wednesday, July 27th, 2016

Article source: B.E Architecture

The Blake Street Residence was intended to investigate a typology of coastal architecture which responded primarily to the ruggedness of its Australian landscape setting.

This dictated elevating the house above the ground plane through the construction of a massive stone podium. The choice of Maffra stone and its rudimentary construction relates to similar stonework seen in many of the historic buildings in the surrounding area.

Empty Nester Residence in Arlington, Virginia by Studio Twenty Seven Architecture

Tuesday, July 26th, 2016

Article source: Studio Twenty Seven Architecture

This new house is for an “empty-nester” couple downsizing to a smaller residence now that their children have grown.

The program for the new house was only 2400 square feet, but this was significantly larger than the 1600 square feet found in the existing homes in the neighborhood. The most contextually appropriate massing for the new house was to work with the “pill-box” typology of the original structure. Rotating the orientation of the roof line ninety degrees provide a house with a similar street presence massing but the ability to move deeper into the rear of the site. The home was to be constructed by a local builder using builder-level detailing and common materials and framing. The Owners elected to use wood siding on the exterior for its visual warmth and renewable quality.

Summer-house in Lipno, Czech Republic by B² Architecture

Tuesday, July 26th, 2016

Article source: B² Architecture

A young couple has purchased a lot in a resort area of Lipno. The lot was located in the woods of the local foothills. An old summer-house, that had been built on the lot in the 80s, needed to be turned into a primary residence for this young couple. They both love the outdoors and wanted to be closer to the nature around. The main goal of the house’s redesign was to keep its simple form and to create a connection between the nature outside and the interior.
