23 Terrace in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia by DRTAN LM Architect

Sunday, August 21st, 2016

Article source: DRTAN LM Architect

Situated in the upper middle class suburban of Taman Tun Dr. Ismail that was developed in the early 70’s, 23 Terrace is a new double-storey terrace house reconfigured in place of its single-storey predecessor. During day, the façade is a typical contemporary terrace house with large openings, glass balustrade and minimalist security door grille and gate. At dusk, the house transforms into a lantern, casting surrealistic shadows on the cement rendered porch.

Zilker Residences in Austin, Texas by Clark Rrichardson Architects

Friday, August 19th, 2016

Article source: Clark Rrichardson Architects

This contemporary architectural design, located just blocks from the Barton Springs Pool and the Umlauf Sculpture Garden, features two residences in the heart of Austin’s Zilker Neighborhood. Both units open out to private landscaped interior courtyards as well as second floor balconies with views to downtown. The exterior material palette consists of a vertical standing seam siding contrasted against a white washed, vertical cypress tongue and groove siding.  The rear unit is the builder / developer, Tim Mccabe’s own residence featuring prints from noted photographer David Hume Kennerly and sculpture from his travels in Asia as the development manager for the Pero Family in Dallas.  Tim’s brings his sensibilities from living in Dallas in cannonical modern urban residences by the likes Bud Oblesby and Frank Welch of the O’Neil Ford School here to Austin’s own growing modern tradition.  The building as a whole is a focused on elegant, urban living through a simple edited material palette, amazing framed views to the Zilker’s mature tree canopy and ample outdoor gathering spaces.

House Folded in Osaka, Japan by Alphaville Architects

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

Article source: Alphaville Architects

This is a 100m2 residence for a couple and their cats located in Osaka, Japan. The typical method for designing a house would assign rectangular rooms with specific functions and lay out them. Such a design produces a series of rooms of similar size and causes monotonous spatial experiences. Our approach was to avoid the conventional design practice and to create a structurally rational but spatially heterogeneous house.

Arvindh and Priya’s house in Bangalore, India by Biome Environmental Solutions Pvt.Ltd.

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

Article source: Biome Environmental Solutions Pvt.Ltd.

The house sits in the context of a densely built residential area in North Bangalore. A substantial area of the plot along the road edge is occupied by the expansive canopy of a beautiful African Tulip.

The design takes the tree into consideration at every stage in an attempt to unite it with the built space, factoring in daylight and ventilation. The resulting home is marked by a sedate atmosphere, hints of the tree and the sky mingling with sober earth walls, which then contrast with oxide floors and painted steel windows.

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.
