House Set On The Valley Floor in California by ATELIER JØRGENSEN

Tuesday, July 17th, 2018


Set within the vineyards and close to the center of town, the site for the house is a large plot of land dotted with full grown trees and vineyards.

The project consists of two houses connected with glass. Each house is protected from a busy road with two ‘L’ Shaped walls – one is stone and one is cedar. A number of pieces behind these walls are arranged together around courtyards and terraces. In turn giving rise to a sequence of individual gardens, each with their own individual ambience – gardens set among other limitless gardens. A system of slender spaces act like paths connecting the gardens, courtyards, and interior spaces, each embracing and respecting the landscape.

MALEO Residence in Lombok, Indonesia by Mitchel Squires & Associates Limited

Thursday, July 12th, 2018

Article source: Mitchel Squires & Associates Limited

The front and back facades on the first story are solid, providing covered exterior space while maintaining the volume’s geometric purity. A public-private transition is created at the villa entry, and continues down at ground floor level. Seen from outside, the solid-void composition can clearly be read. A long transparent façade encloses the open living space – the “void” – and two closed stone blocks at both ends mark the “solid” private spaces.

Article source: Devyni architektai

A shelter for a hunter’s family leisure time is located on a small hill in the deep Lithuanian forest. The chosen location is retreated and surrounded by trees in order to give a chance to hear the real sound of the nature. A main inspiration of the concept was a client’s hobby – hunting. The idea was to infuse a lifestyle of the family with an archaic conception –  to eat what the nature provides and  exchange it to products from neighbouring farms. It suppose to become a place where an environment  accommodates human but keeps the importance over him.
