Scenario’s House in London, England by Scenario Architecture

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

Article source: Scenario Architecture

This house was a chance to be our own clients. It was purchased with the intention of completely renovating, extending and adapting it to the scenarios of our own family life. It presented us with the opportunity to ‘practice what we preach’ to its fullest expression and create the scenario house. The main design challenge was finding a way of connecting the front part of the house, which originally had two separate Victorian reception rooms with the basement level, a full floor height below, both physically and visually, in order to create a sense of single and connected open living and kitchen spaces.

The Rotating Radius House in New Mexico by jantzen studio

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

Article source: jantzen studio

The Rotating Radius House is an experimental interactive architecture project designed to provide a special weekend retreat place for two people living in New Mexico.

At the center is a twenty-foot diameter glass and steel cylindrical space formed by twelve perimeter sliding glass doors, and by twelve segments of a sloped glass and steel roof. Each of the sliding glass doors is fitted with interior privacy shades and screens. This space contains a large centrally located light, a bed, chairs, tables, a food preparation pod, and a bath/toilet pod, all mounted on wheels. The entire house is powered by a large solar panel mounted on the top of the structure, and by auxiliary propane gas, stored nearby in steel tanks. Rainwater is collected off of the roof and purified for use in the house, and stored in an outside reservoir.

Rocha Apartment in Catalonia, Spain by CaSA – Colombo and Serboli Architecture

Sunday, December 11th, 2016

Article source: CaSA – Colombo and Serboli Architecture 

The brief was to transform this neglected, very badly distributed apartment into an attractive holiday home.

The property is located in an extremely central street, right between Plaza Catalunya y Plaza Universitat, on the sixth floor of an art nouveau building.

Nonetheless, this last floor was built in the ’60 and lacked of the charm of the rest of the building.

L House in New York by LANZA Atelier

Sunday, December 11th, 2016

Article source: LANZA Atelier

House L project derives from the need to create a new connection for the rooms of an existing house in Valle de Bravo, in a very beautiful natural environment. So far, some romos were accessed through other rooms and why the owners did not feel comfortable to invite friends because they could not offer them privacy.

The initial project also included a new two-story independent volume, which functioned as an apartment with a living room, bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette.

Vidalakis Residence in California by Swatt | Miers Architects

Sunday, December 11th, 2016

Article source: Swatt | Miers Architects

This distinctive residence was designed as a piece of inhabitable art for its owner, an avid collector of colorful and unique works. Featuring three stepped-back stories linked by a grand mahogany staircase and a double-height glass pavilion overlooking the semi-rural landscape on three sides, this gallery home is a piece of sculpture in its own right.
