Yan Lane in Victoria, Australia by Justin Mallia Architecture

Tuesday, December 6th, 2016

Article source: Justin Mallia Architecture

Yan Lane is a new street in Richmond. Undertaken on a small budget, this scheme was conceived as an opportunity to use architectural understanding to drive a development project to meaningfully infill an otherwise ignored space and to achieve financial return. The project involved the subdivision of a narrow sliver of land with no street frontage and hidden between the rear face of shops to the south and the backyard fences and sheds of houses to the north. Yan Lane is primarily the creation of a new building incorporating two houses but reaches beyond the scope of the small site to include the extension of services infrastructure from the main road and the recreation of a right of way to form a new street. The project creates an activated, human place from what was previously disused and neglected.

DESCRIPTION:

The project consists of four single-family houses on the coast of Aamchit, Lebanon as well as the rehabilitation of the existing landscape and old houses.

The site slopes west towards the Mediterranean, its angle allowing for embedding the houses in the landscape in such a way that the front is open to the view and breeze whereas the other sides of the house are protected by earth. Each house consists of a double-layer wall that retains the earth from the east and slopes with the land north and south.

Article source: Inhouse Brand Architects 

What can only be described as the ultimate “man cave”, Inhouse Brand Architects has converted the unused lounge area of a Fresnaye residence into an industrial-inspired dream pad for the family’s lucky teenage boy and his friends.

Taking into account the youngster’s various interests such as skating, surfing and socialising, the Inhouse team aimed to create a trendy, multifunctional space. The project was steered by Creative Director Aidan Hart, and senior designer Jenine Bruce, who chose a modern industrial aesthetic for this youthful interior.

“House in Irino” in Miyazaki, Japan by Takeshi Ishiodori Architecture

Tuesday, December 6th, 2016

Article source: Takeshi Ishiodori Architecture

It is a house built in Aya-cho, Miyazaki Prefecture, which has the largest evergreen forest zone in Japan. There were three conditions on the premises.

1) There are restrictions on color and form because it is within the landscape area.

2) The traffic volume is high along the main road.

3) Leave a wonderful cherry tree on the site.

While fulfilling these three conditions, I aimed for a house that melts while giving stimulation to the cityscape.
