The Wedge House in Athens, Greece by schema architecture & engineering

Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

Article source: Schema Architecture & Engineering

The Wedge house is a custom-built single family home located in the northern suburbs of Athens, in the mountainous and full of pine trees area of Penteli, named Drafi. The site is quite distinctive and has many challenging features. The main complexity is the steep terrain with an almost 20-meter-height-difference from one side of the site to the other. The virtually vertical cliffs on both edges made access very difficult, so when a mild inclined surface appeared in the middle of the site it was quite inevitable that the house would be situated there.

The Mororó House is in a mountainous region, 180 km from the city of São Paulo, known for its low temperatures.

Redux House in Bragança Paulista, Brazil by studio mk27

Sunday, August 13th, 2017

Article source: studio mk27

“Suzana only thinks of the house, she is in love with it”. Suzana’s ex-husband cannot get it out of his mind that the new house – conceived by them both – meant the end of his marriage. The ex-husband’s jealous looks are meant for nobody else other than the straight and modern lines, “cold, tedious and without life”. While images pass through the architecture he distills his fear of the construction and elaborates about the new life that Suzana will be enjoying at that place. “Where is Suzana now?” She couldn’t be in any other place except that house, where Suzana’s love is so transparent.

The Itupeva House in Brazil, by Aresto Arquitetura

Sunday, August 13th, 2017

Article source: Aresto Arquitetura

The house is basically organized in a large block in format with two floors.

The social sector was positioned on the lower floor, which features the living room, dining room, kitchen, home theater, utility room, guest toilet, laundry room, gourmet space and pool. On the ground floor are the garage, the warehouse, the entrance hall, the office and the three dormitories.
The local conditions were decisive for the solutions adopted in the project. The lot is located in the highest part of the condominium, which allowed the creation of large openings overlooking the natural landscape.

This privileged location also allowed a better use of ventilation and natural lighting. The large openings in opposite directions allow the control of the air currents inside the house.

House In The Market in Seville, Spain by sol89

Sunday, August 13th, 2017

Article source: sol89 

The project arises from an emergency situation: a town hall execution order requires new owners of this 19th century home to intervene on it immediately to repair the pathologies detected by the technical inspection carried out some years before. The urgency and the limited budget conditioned the mode of intervention: the owners decided to start the work themselves. They demolished partitions, removed suspended ceiling and claddings walls, to get to know what the house could hide. In the process in which they move blindly, where to erase is needed more than to draw and where the project goes and comes back, they go slowly discovering latent house that was hidden, veiled under the guise of partitions, mortars and plasters. Along the way, they decide to remove damaged parts, recover blind holes which existed in another time and to give up surface in exchange for volume. They also opt to retain those rediscovered elements that narrate the history of that place assuming that time also builds. During the two-year renovation process, the needs of its owners change.
