Two-in-One House in Ekeberglia, Norway by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter AS

Sunday, June 17th, 2018

Article source: Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter AS

The Two-in-One House is a calm piece of architecture resting on the steep and dynamic landscape of Ekeberglia. Its slender and rectangular form is manifested at the top of the sloping landscape.  From a concrete base, the building grows with a wooden clad body forming relation with the omnipresence of broadleaf trees surrounding the building topped with a light glass structure.

A youthful yet sophisticated contemporary family dwelling on the Sydney Harbour shore

Set in a north-facing cove in Sydney’s vast natural harbour, the site borders a recreational park and a public pier which juts out into the bay. This element forms one axis for the site whilst a pristine beach, directly in front of the site, forms another.

North Fork Bay House in New York City by Resolution: 4 Architecture

Sunday, June 17th, 2018

Article source: Resolution: 4 Architecture

With direct access to Great Peconic Bay, this prefab beach house is designed to be a weekend retreat for a young Brooklyn family of four, and seasonal residence for the client’s Florida-based parents. The prefabricated modules are set atop the site-built steel frame, allowing for views of the bay as one arrives via the long, tree-lined gravel drive. While the house is not technically within a FEMA-designated flood zone, the strategy of lifting the house is a direct response to the client’s concerns about potential flooding in the future. Simultaneously, this strategy provides outstanding views of the bay from the main level, while creating shaded and sheltered outdoor space below the house for parking, lounging, and woodworking—including the grandfather’s latest project: building a small sailboat.

Rathbone Square in London, England by Make Architects

Friday, June 15th, 2018

Article source: v2com

A former Royal Mail sorting office site, just off London’s Oxford Street has been transformed into a high-quality mixed use development with a new publicly accessible garden, by Make Architects.

Designed as a sorting office in 1951, the site was formerly inaccessible to the public when it was bought by London developer Great Portland Estates plc (GPE). Now, two L-shaped blocks stepping from six to nine storeys surround a garden that takes up 20% of the GDA.

The commercial element has stainless steel spandrel panels to distinguish it from the residential element. The glazed ceramic bounces light around the garden while the dark bronze anodised aluminium links the commercial and residential elements together, Image Courtesy © Make Architects

House Brotero in Lisboa, Portugal by phdd arquitectos

Friday, June 15th, 2018

Article source: phdd arquitectos

In a neighbourhood of small buildings this project was always developed with the intention of a careful integration of the house in the local context.

For the street the house is revealed like a small traditional volume, with roof tiles and typical sized windows with local stone, setting the relationship with the scale of the neighbourhood.

This volume is attached to another one exposed as a big wall, without any openings, where the main social areas of the house open to the garden in the back.

L-House in Linden, Australia by ASA – Alexander Symes Architect

Friday, June 15th, 2018

Article source: ASA – Alexander Symes Architect

Perched on the eastern spur of Linden in the lower Blue Mountains, sat a project home partially completed in 2003. The new owners, a young couple, decided after suffering through several cold winters that it was time to renovate the house into a thermally comfortable family home.

The clients originally wanted to maintain the two existing pavilions: one for guest accommodation and the other for ancillary spaces and create a new dwelling to the east, increasing floor space to accommodate a family and capture the surrounding bushland and easterly views across the Sydney basin to the harbour and city.

gré Square House in Shizuoka, Japan by suzuki architects

Thursday, June 14th, 2018

Article source: suzuki architects

This combined home and business sits on the skirts of Nihondaira, a hilly area just outside central Shizuoka City. The neighborhood is a mixture of large old farmhouses, tea fields, and new housing developments, with small shops nestled into the laid-back surroundings.The streets curve slightly as they climb gently toward the hills, as if they were built on top of the old paths between fields.They lead, too, to openings where Mt. Fuji suddenly comes into view. It is in just such a spot that this house is located.
