ZEN Retreat Home in Guanacaste, Costa Rica by SARCO Architects

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

Article source: SARCO Architects

This residence, located in the Peninsula Papagayo luxury resort in Guanacaste, Costa Rica, was penned by its owner to have an “Earthy Contemporary” architectural style. The home was designed in a lot overlooking the sixteenth hole of the Four Seasons Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course. The design was thought to maximize the view to the golf course fairway down below, and to also take advantage of multiple existing trees around the home and give the home an exotic tree house feeling. We used a combination of large glazed surfaces for transparency, exposed steel structure, with wood and natural stone accents, to achieve a modern design with a natural feeling.

Leading onto the living room, this converts to an overnight guest area, separated by curtains and reversible sofas. With an additional central bathroom serving the guests.

– The perimeter wall of each house is treated as thickness of light, and thus lives in light and not between party thicknesses which in turn sift the perception of them.Parque Virginia Residences

Custom home in Westport CT by DeMotte Architects

Friday, August 12th, 2016

Article source: DeMotte Architects

This project started out as an addition/remodel to a really nice little cape…”we’d like to remove the roof and build a second story addition”. This kind of project usually leads to extensive remodeling of the first floor, at which point you’re very close to the cost of just building a new house. One I heard “we’d also like taller ceilings on the first floor”, that’s when the decision was made to tear down the house & build a new house in it’s place.

LEBENsuhr Zopfmatte residential complex in Switzerland by fsp Architekten AG

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

Article source: fsp Architekten AG

The Zopfmatte residential complex aims to help and encourage residents to live independently in their own homes, whilst meeting their needs in every stage of life. The Zopfmatte housing concept demonstrates a forward-looking understanding of living arrangements for the elderly. In Suhr, the political, social and individual independence sought by (very) elderly residents is construed as assisted independence. The necessary occupational and organisational structures have been consistently integrated into the project. An on-site contact team is available to residents on a daily basis. Interfaces to the community are in place. The contact team plays a key role in the Zopfmatte operating concept. It consists of a contact person and a caretaker with additional responsibilities. Together they take care of the service office for the complex. Their main task is to help residents achieve independence, to provide them with information and to offer organisational advice if necessary, for example in their dealings with authorities and official bodies. Administrative operations in Zopfmatte are financed by the tenants and apartment owners by means of a flat-rate solidarity fee. Based on these conditions, \”Ageing in Place\” is achieved.
