Central Park Residence in Cluj-Napoca, Romania by Dico si Tiganas architecture and engineering

Friday, September 16th, 2016

Article source: Dico si Tiganas architecture and engineering

When the client demanded three rectangular residential towers on a site with irregular contour, surrounded by a winding stream that derives from the Somes river and by clusters of poplar trees that surround the nearby sports park, we took the responsibility to come up with a different approach: a building that integrates the three separate units in one unitary volume with a layout that undulates on the site so that it makes the most of the natural light and views. It also provides a sheltered space and a private, quiet area, in the resulting concave space. This space is an artificial landscape, a green leisure and relaxation area that is shaped as a green roof for the underground parking.

Tree Snake Houses in Pedras Salgadas, Portugal by RA \\ Architectural & Design Studio

Thursday, September 15th, 2016

Article source: RA \\ Architectural & Design Studio

Along with the project Pedras Salgadas Park by architects Luís Rebelo de Andrade and Tiago Rebelo de Andrade, came the challenge of creating an object that could recreate the fantasy of the tree houses.

The project for these houses was developed in partnership with the Modular System Company. The idea was to get an object that would be far away from the orthogonality and from pre-established concepts associated with the modular construction.

Lyon Park House in Arlington, Virginia by Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

Thursday, September 15th, 2016

Article source: Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

Lyon Park, in Arlington, Virginia is an “urban village” near Washington, DC. Most of the houses in this established neighborhood were constructed in the 1920’s and 1930’s. The houses vary in style, ranging from small single-story bungalows to larger wood and brick colonial revivalist houses. Streets are tree lined and the topography is gently rolling. After living in their house for about seven years, a young family of four hoped to transform their colonial house to better fit their lifestyle. A series of small but cozy rooms failed to connect with each other and to the deep, sloping landscaped backyard. Excluding the basement, the existing house comprised less than fourteen hundred square feet, with two bedrooms and only one full bathroom. Ideally, the transformation would retain the “sense of home” while providing spaces open to each other, additional bedrooms and a better connection to the landscaped site. A building that avoided stylistic mimicry with modern light filled spaces was desired. Sustainable construction techniques and the use of environmentally sensitive materials were expected.

Family Home Klanovice in Prague, Czech Republic by ADR architects

Wednesday, September 14th, 2016

Article source: BoysPlayNice

The house is situated on level ground and consists of three main axially symmetrical rectangular blocks. By its situation and shape, the house deliberately splits the garden into several parts: front garden open to public view, back private garden and small atria – each such garden space can be designed in a different style. Despite the corner plot, the spatial layout affords the family a good level of privacy.
