NP House (Dinesh Mill Bunglow) in Vadodara, India by Atelier Design N Domain

Tuesday, February 7th, 2017

Article source: Atelier Design N Domain 

To build a minimalist house with simple clean lines, uncluttered geometry, fluid, transparent spaces where the interiors and exteriors blend into each other in an attempt to keep the user constantly in touch with the outdoors.

The site with thriving greenery was located just outside vadodara city. The brief was very clear – to design a contemporary house for this family of three and their support staff meeting their functional requirements. The challenge of the site really lay in preserving the natural vegetation that abounded on the plot. The planning went through several iterations in a bid to preserve as many of the trees on site as possible.

Quinta do Carregal in Tondela, Portugal by WAATAA_we are all together around architecture

Tuesday, February 7th, 2017

Article source: WAATAA_we are all together around architecture

In a seemingly infinite territory and mostly occupied by pines and oaks, the implantation of the house marks a space and an intention. A space of pause, serenity and breathing, surrounded and protected by the green patch that filters the light and the eyesight, purifies the air and the soul and stimulates the corporal senses of who let himself be seduced by the elements of nature. An intention of materializing a perennial refuge that transforms and adapts itself to the site’s conditions and to the family that inhabits it.

There she sits, in one of the hip cafes of Letna, the cool part of Prague. The friend who introduced us said she was a lawyer, but there is something different about her. Something that just doesn’t fit.

Puro Hotel in Palma, Spain by OHLAB

Tuesday, February 7th, 2017

Article source: v2com

Puro is an iconic 22 room boutique hotel located in the heart of La Lonja, in the historical center of Palma.

Adapting itself to the different existing buildings, the hotel has an irregular configuration. The refurbishment project by OHLAB takes advantage of that complexity as a potential tool to generate unexpected and unique spaces where each room is different from each other. The project solves every room with individualized and unique layouts and solutions. The selection of natural and local materials emphasizing the Mediterranean essence has been very important. Another important focus has been the conception of the bathrooms as spaces for pleasure, spacious and integrated with the bedrooms, with generous, sculptural and freestanding bathtubs placed in the bedrooms just as another piece of furniture.

Tour & Taxis in Brussels, Belgium by Vincent Callebaut Architectures

Tuesday, February 7th, 2017

Article source: Vincent Callebaut Architectures

1. TOUR ET TAXIS: TOWARDS A MIXED-USE ECO-NEIGHBORHOOD

Whereas most developing countries can write their future starting from a blank slate, European cities face the challenge of transforming their built heritage to secure their energy, social and economic transition towards post-carbon, circular and interdependent urban living.

It means being determined to act as forward thinkers, and to bring our new project “Tour & Taxis” into the 21st century in terms of uses, technological progress, social innovation, and sustainable building principles. Today’s architecture is capable of implementing “energy solidarity” between a piece of architectural heritage — industrial in this case — and a contemporary project. The latter provides the necessary energy to the former by integrating renewable energies, thus limiting carbon emissions as recommended by the COP 21.

Healdsburg I in California by Feldman Architecture

Tuesday, February 7th, 2017

Article source: Feldman Architecture

Comprised of perpendicular bars atop a hill overlooking the village of Healdsburg, this home offers both ample social space ideal for entertaining and the privacy of a rural retreat.

The taller section runs along the ridge of the hill and houses the home’s great room under lofty ceilings and a simple shed overhanging roof, filled with light and views let in through tall glass walls.  Four oversized glass panels open dramatically on each side, transforming the space into an outdoor pavilion whose flush concrete floors extend into a poolside patio to the north and into a terrace featuring a fire pit to the south to offer comfortable outdoor areas for both hot and cool weather.   With these doors drawn up, the site offers one sweeping, continuous view from the pool, through the great room, and down into the distant village below.

Sunday, February 5th, 2017

Article source: Architects Lahdelma & Mahlamäki

The design area is located by the railway, at the junction of City of Oulu’s urban fabric, where the low and small-scale district of Puu-Raksila meets with the more high-rising city centre. The design joins together these two different scales and construction methods, which, at the same time, creates an areal entity with a distinctive and attractive identity.

Studio Sitges in Spain by Olson Kundig

Sunday, February 5th, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig

Studio Sitges is a live/work space for a photographer and his family. Located three blocks from the

Mediterranean Sea, the building captures the casual energy of this cosmopolitan beach town thirty minutes from Barcelona.

The house is zoned vertically, with two large below-grade photography studios anchoring the building, a main floor for entertaining both large and small groups, and private areas above. A glass elevator moves between floors and culminates in an intimate rooftop atelier. Kundig describes the whole house as a studio—a space in which things can happen.

Nerima House in Tokyo, Japan by Elding Oscarson

Sunday, February 5th, 2017

Article source: Elding Oscarson 

On a plot in Tokyo, a small garden has been thriving next to an old house for a long time. As the tiny existing building was replaced, our client really wanted to preserve the garden and allow it to sprawl all around the house. The small plot should also fit a parking, the maximum footprint of the house, and the necessary gap to the site perimeter. The client is a couple that will first use this house as a weekend house before eventually moving to Tokyo. They also have grown-up children living in Tokyo and abroad that will inhabit the house from time to time. Therefore, the program was fairly unspecified, and rather than making a house with many small rooms, we opted for a concept which gives a few large spaces in this small house.
