Altaïr house in Québec, Canada by Bourgeois / Lechasseur architects

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Article source: v2com

This house, whose name refers to the brightest star in the Aquila constellation, is located in Cap-à-l’Aigle, in the region of Charlevoix. Altaïr means “The Flying Eagle.” What makes the house stand out is its “V” shape and long facades that are suspended over nature. While discrete from the street and closed to the north, it unfolds toward the river, as though to take flight.

LUMINA Condominium Development in Folsom St., San Francisco by II BY IV DESIGN

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Article source: v2com

In San Francisco, where it’s notoriously harder to find a place to live than it is to find a job, breaking into the real estate market can be difficult. San Francisco is a compact city of less than 50 square miles situated on steep hills and surrounded on three sides by water, which means new development has historically been limited. That is until 1989 when an earth quake destroyed portions of the double-deck Embarcardero freeway; the road was sadly demolished, but it opened up areas for new development and new opportunity.

Gold Hall Residence in Malibu, California by Stephen Phillips Architects (SPARCHS)

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Article source: Stephen Phillips Architects (SPARCHS)

Giving a face lift to an otherwise aged 1960s Malibu Canyon track home, Stephen Phillips Architects (SPARCHS) creates a sparkling contemporary gem.

Located all too near the notorious Piuma Canyon Brush fires, executive television producer Ted Gold and his wife Cara Hall, a graphic designer, took on the challenge to purchase an all wood-sided shed-roof modern home and transform it into something original and beautiful. Working with a minimal budget one step at a time, they hired local California architect Phillips to make a series of strategic surgical design procedures to update, rejuvenate, and fortify their painfully drab house with elegance and style.

House of Rolf in Utrecht, The Netherlands by Studio Rolf.fr and Niek Wagemans

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Article source: Studio Rolf.fr

Introduction 

‘House of Rolf’ is an ambitious transformation of a late nineteenth century coach house into a spectacular home and workspace. What is truly unique about this project is that all the materials used to carry out this transformation originated from a demolished office building that was located next to the coach house. The care and meticulous way in which these materials were reapplied can be witnessed in the end result. ‘House of Rolf’ is proof that waste can be turned into something beautiful.

This brick villa in Göttingen classical modernism had on its own sense as a starting point. But in the specific organic expression of “human modernism” by the Finnish architect Alvar Aalto (1898 – 1976). “Second Nature” headlined the retrospective of the work of Alvar Aalto, which showed the Vitra Design Museum in the previous year. Of course arose with the composed a Geländeversprung in north-south orientation Villa in Göttingen no homage to a bygone era architecture. The construction date of the year 2014 and can not be concealed. The parallels are in the atmospheric, in the furnace unit, consistency and love of nature of the draft.

THE KITE in Australia by Architecture Architecture

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

Article source: Architecture Architecture

A stand of silver birches marks the place. Their trunks are white heat, tempered by pools of black. Everything here is light and shade. Taking cue from their slender friends, black downpipes score the white walls of the house, disappearing into the canopy above.

Approaching the threshold, the visitor is welcomed by pockets of shade nestled among protective brick walls. A large pivot window and a large pivot door throw themselves wide open, exposing the full throat of the house to the garden.
