Single family house in Vilnius, Lithuania by Architekturos linija

Wednesday, November 9th, 2016

Article source: Architekturos linija

The main architectural idea of the residential house is to build an expressive, memorable building yet not overshadowing the fragile context, but directly to the matching to it. The residential house is implemented instead of the natural environment of a garden house built during the Soviet period, and spot-homestead type development near the junction to the block street. One floor, specifically elongated volume was deliberately opposed the vertical lines of the nearby tall pine trees. The unusual shape of the house was due to a very complex shape of the plot. Looking from the approach, only the rear façade with expressive silhouette, reiterating the scale of adjacent buildings, is perceived, while the actual size of the building is understood only entering the area through the gate.

HEM House in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam by Sanuki Daisuke architects (sda)

Wednesday, November 9th, 2016

Article source: Sanuki Daisuke architects (sda)

Living in the “HEM”

This is the individual house project at a small alley in the center of Ho Chi Minh City.

When having a look at Vietnamese towns, we can realize that the buildings’ blocks separated by main streets, and numerous narrow alleys inside of the blocks like blood capillary. The width of these alleys is quite narrow around 2m – 4m, occasionally less than 1m. When walking around these alleys, we can see very vivacious Vietnamese life., these narrow alleys are called “HEM” and these are quite attractive urban spaces in Vietnam.

Kensington Palace in Victoria, Australia by Nic Owen Architects

Wednesday, November 9th, 2016

Article source: Nic Owen Architects

A renovation and extension to the rear of a Victorian cottage in Kensington, Victoria Australia.

■ The owner, a single professional loved her charming 2 bedroom cottage but found the spaces dark, tired and basically in need of repair.

■ A neighbouring 2 storey extension compromised her privacy to the rear living spaces and the backyard, effectively reducing the usability of the property.

■ A small 1970’s sun-room extension was removed and replaced with a black steel and glass small extension. Large picture frame windows supply light and outlook to the existing structure.

Caminha Apartment in Portugal by Tiago do Vale Architects

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016

Article source: Tiago do Vale Architects

A Graphical Refurbishment by the Sea

Built in the 80’s, this apartment was in dire need of refurbishment. Both its infrastructures and organization were dated, so the intention was to make the most of its potentialities while bringing its living experience to contemporary standards.

With just over 400 ft2 (40 m2) of surface, this small apartment by the sea was unwelcoming due to a choice of darker materials, 30 years of intense use and a not particularly qualified compartmentation (though in tune with its time).
