Baufritz Haussicht in Erkheim, Germany by Studio Alfredo Häberli

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

Article source: Studio Alfredo Häberli 

Alfredo Haeberli:

I still have the copy of my letter, which I wrote in 2008 – and a copy of the woman’s magazine from back then. “Women changing the world” – I was so deeply impressed by it, I simply could not understand, that you wouldn’t respond in any way. Today we are strolling around the finished house, which we have developed together. Quite impressive, how this thing has taken speed.

LD 2 COUNTRY HOUSE in Moscow Oblast, Russia by DNK ag

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

Article source: DNK ag

The house and surrounding landscape form one strong unit. The terrace overhangs the pond. Garage and maintenance building are constructed as a hill with a park above. The hill conceals terrace from the road. All the inner house facades are made from water resistant and super strong merbau wood. The outer contour is a frame of Jurassic stone (!!!!).Windows are equipped with extendable wooden jalousie. They allow light through and give sense of privacy at the same time. The interior is the same color scheme as the facade: red wooden and grey-beige stone shades. The architects developed interior and construction parts, starting from the door knobs to magnificent dominate staircase. The upper light fixtures open the interior to sun beams.

Sunshine Beach House in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects

The Sunshine Beach House explores the coastal aesthetic through the use of greying timbers and natural materials in a bold, but equally eclectic, architectural expression. The house is planned around a sequence of courtyards (north and south) that offer a very comfortable year-round lifestyle. Built by Wade Jenner (who along with his wife Claire is also the owner), this project afforded us a wonderful opportunity to develop and craft ideas we’ve had for a long time with someone who trusted us enough to make them real.

Unique ‘Arts and Crafts’ facade for residential tower De Verkenner

A new residential tower completed on Churchilllaan in Kanaleneiland, Utrecht, will give a big impetus to the development of this typical post-war reconstruction district. The new 50-metre-tall building, designed by Mei architects and planners, acts as a gatekeeper to Kanaleneiland. The tower contains a mixed programme of housing: 71 private sector rental dwellings in the upper portion, 15 dwellings for autistic youths, and 9 live-work units in the base of the building.

Bracketed Space House in Austin, Texas by Matt Fajkus Architecture

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

Article source: Matt Fajkus Architecture

Incorporating the site’s dynamic landscape into the daily life of its residents, the [Bracketed Space] House is designed as a meaningfully-framed procession through the property with nuanced natural lighting throughout. A continuous and jogging retaining wall from outside to inside embeds the structure below natural grade at the front with flush transitions at its rear facade. All indoor spaces open up to a courtyard which terraces down to the tree canopy, creating a readily visible and occupiable transitional space between man-made and nature.

Skyhole in Shiga, Japan by ALPHAVILLE Architects Co.Ltd

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

Article source: ALPHAVILLE Architects Co.Ltd 

The building is an atelier and residence for a couple of painter and a designer. It is a  space to spend their whole day with their only son and will be used to regularly exhibit works as a gallery  and host a party. Therefore, the atelier and the residence will be used multi-dimensionally by shifting boundaries depending on usages. In order to house various activities, extra air volume and spatial intonation  were sought. By distorting the inside of one big volume, we searched for a vibrating space that responds to the weight of activities.
