Gros Ventre Residence in Jackson, Wyoming by Stephen Dynia Architects

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Article source: Stephen Dynia Architects

Nestled into a hillside, this low profile residence creates a contrast of spatial experiences. The house consists of two intersecting “bars”. The south and east side of the bars capture downhill views to the valley floor. On the northern uphill side, the house’s two wings form an intimate courtyard with a grove of aspen trees. At the entry, the geometry is skewed by an alignment with a prominent mountain peak view line to the east.

This building is a weekend residence for a husband and a wife who loves to go climbing. It stands on east facing slope inside a national park, where grand nature can be viewed in all directions. I designed this building by a concept to divide required indoor spaces from the collection of perpendicularly crossing independent walls.

Beach House I-5 in Lima, Perú by Vértice Arquitectos

Sunday, May 12th, 2013

Article source: Vértice Arquitectos

This house was designed in the first row, plot5 in Lomas del Mar beach in Cerro Azul, 120Km. south of Lima. The plot is a rocky and sandy hill in a half curved shape that reaches48 meters high above the sea level and drops steeply8 meters in its lowest part. It has a 180° view to the Pacific Ocean to the south, and a panoramic view of the beach to the east and to the north. The two main goals to develop the project were to fully exploit the best possible view to the ocean from the social area, as well as from the master bedroom, and to make the most of the plot of land.

J-4 House in Lima, Perú by Vertice Arquitectos

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

Article source: Vertice Arquitectos

We were faced with a plot of land shaped as a quarter of a circumference that had a height difference of 5.50 meters on the curved side. This side has a privileged view of the sea. In addition, we were conditioned by the construction regulations which enabled us to build two terraced levels.

Haus Wiesenhof in Tirol, Austria by Gogl Architekten

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

Article source: Gogl Architekten

The client requested a getaway – a place of peace and contemplation with a strong relationship to the nature surrounding it. This alpine refuge is a symbiosis of spatial openness and enclosed areas. According to the design specifications, rebuilding or extending the house beyond the existing cubage was not permitted, which entailed a massive limitation for the design. Through the basic ideas of interlocking the inner rooms and the form design of an open and richly varied spatial structure, the architect conceptually compensated for the design restrictions and created a generous living and leisure space.

Prime Nature Residence in Samutprakarn, Thailand by Department of ARCHITECTURE

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

Article source: Department of ARCHITECTURE

The owner’s brief for his residence seems at first rather simple – his bedroom on ground floor, another bedroom for his mother and sister on second floor, a large interior living space, and an outdoor terrace for the mother who enjoys outdoor leisure. However, a great challenge comes with the site location. The plot is situated at a busy 3-street intersection in an up-scale residential estate that forbids the use of any kinds of fences.

M2 House in Bozen (BZ), Italy by monovolume architecture+design

Friday, May 10th, 2013

Article source: monovolume architecture+design

The project M2 at Bozen-Moritzing is a Klimahouse. A which hosts two accommodations on separate floors. Because of his punctuated facade in the north and the east it seems closed to the access road. The plastered basement serves as pedestal for the smaller upper floor, which is covered by cladding sheets. To the garden – towards the south and the west – the house opens because of a generous glass façade.

El Caserón in Zaragoza, Spain by G///bang architectural

Friday, May 10th, 2013

Article source: G///bang architectural 

The family. – A couple and a seven year old boy plus a dog. Old but with a great retirement. They christened the house “El Caserón”. They lived renting and they decided to pawn their savings in buying a lot that included an insultingly tasteless house, in my opinion. I decided not to demolish the house, with the family’s permission. We tried to avoid mediocrity looking for the best in the worst.
