Client’s Design Brief

“The inspiration behind COO is the emergence of millennial travellers who are willing to take the road less travelled. To them, travelling is no longer a leisure pursuit alone, but an opportunity to gain local insights and garner authentic experiences. We want COO to be a home-grown brand with a regional reach and grounded with Asian sensibilities….” says Silas Lee, Founder of COO.

Martínez House in Maipo, Chile by Tidy Architects

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.

De Gouverneur in Rotterdam, The Netherlands by Architectuur MAKEN

Friday, October 21st, 2016

Article source: Architectuur MAKEN

Though Rotterdam – with its high-rise and modern developments – feels like a pretty dense city, there are still empty plots in the city center. These are the result of the ambitious post-war plans in between old houses. The gaps in between old and new are often left open, which are potential locations for small buildings. The local-government stimulates initiatives for such small scale projects. We started to bike around the city to find a plot in our favorite neighborhood and we took a close look to possible locations and the regulations that comply. About 2 years ago [sept 2014] we laid eyes on this very location, and we contacted the local-government with an email questioning: can we build here? Followed by a reply: Yes, please! The contractor started building in March 2016 and finished in July 2016.

Meadow Farm House in California by William McDonough + Partners

Friday, October 21st, 2016

Article source: William McDonough + Partners

The site design of this small organic farm and residence transitions from a cultivated landscape of orchards, gardens, and farming towards a restored native ecology of meadow grasses and coastal live oaks. The interwoven site and architectural design celebrate the native Northern California landscape and a deep connection to place. The main house is a series of pavilions with rolling zinc roofs that echo waves and wind patterns coming off the ocean, just visible from the property. Striated color patterns in rammed earth walls extrapolate the gentle curve of existing site topography. The building is passively heated and cooled, and energy uses are supported almost entirely by on site harvesting (PVs). The farm includes comprehensive rainwater and graywater harvesting. The project is LEED Platinum certified.

Penthouse Ecopark in Hung Yen, Vietnam by i.house Architecture & Construction

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

Article source: i.house Architecture & Construction

Optimizing the home owner’s aesthetic personality and bringing more green and most relaxing space are the criteria set out for the architects. Based on a current land-site that is cramped and limited in size (90sqm/floor), the architects have used a variety of solutions from creating floor-through space, omitting unnecessary rooms/space, fully maximizing the beautiful views of the urban township and laying unique green parts (garden stands).

For the Penthouse apartment, a contemporary design style was applied in combination with the use of several selected, classic industrial-style furnitures.
