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.
