Milner Modern Residence in Vancouver, Canada by Comelite Architecture & Structure

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

Article source: Comelite Architecture & Structure

In Canada, by grasping a modern home renovation, this is the new outcome of a usual quiet family house. With a garage ducked into the lowest ground; what stood before on its topper level, being seen at front sight was a one-floor building.

Now though after removing meters of soil that blocked our entrance design, the residence can make full use of their fresh inserted third floor by taking its new implemented stairs. There is a whole pitch wide enough to fit an open kitchen leading into the dining area as well as a living room next door. Just how the client has asked for and couldn’t believe how we managed it.

Urban Rigger in Copenhagen, Denmark by BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group

Sunday, October 23rd, 2016

Article source: BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group

Recent years have demonstrated a substantial and sustained increase in the number of student applicants throughout Denmark. As the number of students continues to grow, additional student housing will be needed to accommodate them. There are few strategies that allow cities to expand. Yet, Copenhagen’s harbor remains an underutilized and underdeveloped area at the heart of the city. By introducing a building typology optimized for harbor cities we can introduce a housing solution that will keep students at the heart of the city.

N-House in Fukuoka, Japan by Uchida Takahisa Architect Design Office

Sunday, October 23rd, 2016

Article source: Uchida Takahisa Architect Design Office

Cantilevered closets

The site is located on the soft ground near the lower basin of the big river. The client of this house decided to build one-storied house because the site area is wide enough, but it was necessary to reduce the foundation area because of the construction budget. So I arranged closets in the outer periphery, and attached them by the cantilevering structure.

Martínez House in Maipo, Chile by Tidy Architects

Sunday, October 23rd, 2016

Article source: Tidy Architects 

This is a weekend house in Aculeo Lagoon, mandated by a young couple. The site is located on a hillside that contemplates the lagoon from afar.

The house, in consequence, acts as a landscape observation post and a faraway lookout through two unique picture windows that fork in different paths and heights, to capture two distinct views.
