bm Modular One in Washington, D.C. by Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

Sunday, September 20th, 2015

Article source: Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

A successful builder / developer with a history of constructing modular houses purchased a lot in a desirable neighborhood near Washington, D.C. with the intention of building a spec house.  When a potential buyer expressed interest in the lot, the developer proposed a modular house as a solution to a tight budget and time constraints.  However, the craftsman and colonial style modular houses typically built by the developer did not appeal to the potential client, who desired a light-filled, modern house.

The project features a high-rise residential development for ‘pooja crafted homes’, who is seeking for and “outside of the box – design” and “a natural living experience” for the residents in all their projects. In an age of mass-production and a certain conformism in the building industry, we try to use modern construction techniques to bring back a level of individualism and flexibility for the inhabitants of a highrise.

Moonlight Cabin in Victoria, Australia by Jackson Clements Burrows

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

Article source: Jackson Clements Burrows

Located on a windswept coast line, Moonlight Cabin is a place to retreat from and engage with the landscape’s ephemeral conditions. It is a small footprint shelter (60m2) that explores the boundaries of how small is too small, challenging conventional notions of what is actually necessary in our lives. It is designed to be passively environmentally responsive, ultimately reducing energy use and running costs whilst maximising occupant amenity.
