It’s original placement with the home located towards the back of the plot, comes from the decision to approach the river side and optimize the views, generating the garden towards the front taking advantage of the best orientation.

The social area is located in an elevated level to get the best views of the landscape. It is accessed by an irregular ramp that creates a unique path towards the house entrance.

Lockeport Beach House in Canada by Nova Tayona Architects

Friday, December 8th, 2017

Article source: v2com

Within a protected cove along the South Shore of Nova Scotia, at the end of a stretch of sand, a river empties out into the sea. Time and tides have created a one-kilometre forested sandbar on which this beach house lightly sits.

Despite its dramatic location on an expanse of shoreline, the clients also were drawn to the internal, cozy character of the site, and so, Lockeport Beach House is an oxymoron. Scraggly tamarack and spruce trees covered in Old Man’s Beard are very particular to some areas of Nova Scotia and thrive in the 10 cm of shallow soil here. The trees shelter the site from the openness of the beach, defend against sandbank erosion, and create a very specific sense of place.

Article source: SoNo arhitekti

This family home is an example of a modern design filled with natural light and building blocks comprised of sustainable material – in this case wood,  one of the if not the most strategic material of Slovenia. It’s definitely not a typical prefabricated house out of catalogue as we tried to develop a residence  that meets the needs of modern users while having functional floor plans and contemporary elegant exterior all appropriately settled into its landscape.

House in Toyonaka, Japan by Tato Architects / Yo Shimada

Friday, December 8th, 2017

Article source: Tato Architects / Yo Shimada

Dynamic Abstractness

It is difficult to deal with architectural elements such as stairs and handrails that don’t have direct relation to the main architectural composition.

It might be my prejudice, but architectural space gradually becomes static, when additive elements are reduced to be abstract. It also has an effect on various human activities and furniture to vividly come to front, but sometimes it appears as if they are being denied.

Casa B+P in Itupeva, Brazil by Aresto Arquitetura

Friday, December 8th, 2017

Article source: Aresto Arquitetura

The single-floor residence project, developed in the city of Itupeva, had the challenge of meeting the proposal of a house that combines economy, constructive speed and comfort.

To save money, the first idea was to adapt the project to the existing topography. The lot has a very accented slope, and had some flat areas made by the previous owner.

G House in Reeuwijk, The Netherlands by Lab32 architecten

Friday, December 8th, 2017

Article source: Lab32 architecten

The villa is situated close to the waters of the Reeuwijkse Plassen in a dutch village consisting of not much more than a narrow through road lined predominantly by large, free-standing houses standing on ‘islands’ created by the drainage ditches of the former peatland.

The great attraction of this location lies in the vicinity of water and in the experience of this natural environment through the changing seasons. The villa’s completion represents the fulfilment of a long-held ambition of our clients, for whom a love of water has been an abiding theme of their lives.
