Aaron Florian Housing in Bucharest, Romania by ADN BA

Friday, November 17th, 2017

Article source: ADN BA

Aaron Florian Apartment Building, is an honest answer to a particular urban setting: an irregular plot, the closeness of the opposite building raising privacy issues, a blind wall to a difficult neighbour and an inflection of the street. All these produce an atypical configuration – a building with floors successively recessed, the upper floors providing more light to the narrow street and the exterior spaces directing the views along it.

Grosvenor Square in Dublin, Ireland by SCULLION architects

Friday, November 17th, 2017

Article source: SCULLION architects 

The property is a three-storey terraced house on a fine Georgian Square.  The house is a Protected Structure (Listed) and occupied by a young family who use the lower ground floor as their primary living spaces rather the upper ground floor rooms, which would have originally been designed as the main reception rooms.  Houses of this type and era generally had servant’s quarters on the lower ground floor with the family living on the upper floors, raised away from the rear garden.  As a consequence, ceiling heights were generally lower. These lower ground floor rooms have become more coveted in modern times with the shift in domestic lifestyles towards a stronger relationship between living spaces and the garden than would have originally been the case when built in the late 19th Century.

The tree in the house in Jalisco, Mexico by Agraz Arquitectos

Friday, November 17th, 2017

Article source: Agraz Arquitectos 

This is a very special house, among other things because its main inhabitant, besides the family that lives here is a tree. Before we go any further it is important to observe that the emplacement of this house seems to be at odds with the street. Although seemingly so, it is quite the opposite. In this sense, since it’s longitudinal axis is oriented east-west (perpendicular to the street), and the most favorable orientation for the house in north-south, it was decided that the house accordingly so, should to look inwards rather than outwards. This means that it is not so much at odds with the street, but instead of looking directly at it, the project deals with the street through the creation of an important transition space between both the building and the street, which helps to change the pace while approaching the entrance. Underlying this exterior transitional space, lies the belief in the idea that each project, no matter how small, has a responsibility towards the creation of place in the city.

Villa Lumi in Nummela, Finland by avanto architects

Thursday, November 16th, 2017

Article source: avanto architects

Villa Lumi (lumi = snow) is bordered from three sides by streets. The incoherent suburban environment doesn’t provide any interesting views or starting points for the architecture. This is why the building turns around a courtyard. The noise of traffic is blocked with a glazed pool wing. Terrace courtyard, opening towards the evening sun from the west, is a place of several activities for the family living in the villa.
