Showflat H of Chengdu CR Bund Briliance Phase II in China by Shenzhen Qianxun Decorative Art and Design Co., Ltd

Sunday, April 2nd, 2017

Article source: Shenzhen Qianxun Decorative Art and Design Co., Ltd 

This project advocates the combination of nature and humanities, and it adopts the interspersed animals and plants of nature to increase the vividness of the space. It presents a high quality leisure life style full of cultural ambience. With the dominant colors of glacier gray and taupe and partial embellishment of ocean blue, the color combination is harmonious and warm. Together with the flying birds decoration on the background wall, it gives the room a quiet atmosphere. The overall furniture style is steady and simple, and the rounded furniture not only softens the toughness of square building, but also fits the tradition of the East.

Irwin in Fremantle, Australia by MSG Architecture

Sunday, April 2nd, 2017

Article source: MSG Architecture

Irwin is a white box plugged in to an existing East Fremantle home.

The aim was to separate a breakout area and master bedroom to allow more room for kids and living in the existing house.

Simple materials, strategic windows and a transition space between old and new make this little add on perform well beyond it’s modest footprint.

K House in Niseko, Japan by Florian Busch Architects

Sunday, April 2nd, 2017

Article source: Florian Busch Architects

The brief for this house in what is often referred to as one of the world’s best winter destinations was straightforward: simple, energy-efficient, maintenance-free. By far the best piece left in a fairly large development of mostly quaint variations of the theme “mountain chalet” (and their to our brief inevitably opposed manifestations), the site added to that straightforwardness: Its asset —unhindered views of the volcano Yotei to the east— dictated the orientation; our nonchalant disinterest in (and consequential avoiding of) the neighbouring houses fine-tuned placement.

St Joseph in Melbourne, Australia by KUD – Kavellaris Urban Design

Saturday, April 1st, 2017

Article source: KUD – Kavellaris Urban Design

The St. Joseph project is a luxury residential development situated in Abbottsford, Victoria. Due to its historical significance the site has become part of the cultural landscape within the area, demanding a highly responsive and respectful design outcome. Our primary objective was to incorporate the critical components of school’s culture and history as a celebration and balance of the past and the future – creating ‘future heritage’ for the next generation. We were interested in exploring ways to interpret and represent the critical ‘story’ that created the culture and history of St Joseph’s Technical School. The design intent was to recreate multiple simultaneous layers of history within the articulated screens that wrap around the street frontage facades. The faceted panels create a “Lenticular Image”; an optical phenomenon whereby singular segments of an image converge at specific points of view to recreate the completed image.

The Lego House in Billund, Denmark by BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group

Saturday, April 1st, 2017

Article source: BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group

An old African saying says: It takes a village to raise a child. The LEGO House could be conceived as a village for playing and learning – an urban space as much as architecture. As much for Billund’s visitors as for its citizens, public without and within.

Residence in Herakleon, Greece by Tense Architecture Network

Saturday, April 1st, 2017

Article source: Tense Architecture Network 

The location, on a small hill, is privileged. The longitudinal field is open to the south and the view of mountain Youhtas. How can a linear residence deal with the intense cretan light? The house necessarily unfolds along the south side, the side of the sun: through a double curvature the building is bend by the power of the sun’s path from east to west.

Apartment in Binh Thanh, Vietnam by Sanuki Daisuke architects

Saturday, April 1st, 2017

Article source: Sanuki Daisuke architects

The project is about a small apartment with seven rooms in Binh Thanh District, a nearly central area in Ho Chi Minh City. The site has unique slightly curved shape by merging several plots of different sizes with the total length of around 40 meters. It is located in a high density area surrounded by two or three-storey buildings. On initial inspection of the site, we felt that there is much potential due to: “remaining urban open space / void created haphazardly in the crowded city”. Therefore, on careful consideration, we concluded that this open ‘urban’ space can be utilized to design both an attractive and well-designed open spaced building harnessing the natural daylight and wind.

Ivanhoe House in Melbourne, Australia by KUD – Kavellaris Urban Design

Friday, March 31st, 2017

Article source: KUD – Kavellaris Urban Design

Located in the Inner suburb of Ivanhoe, sits a seemingly calm, unassuming modern suburban home in its moat of Australian granetic sand. The house is a clever orchestration of balancing tension that has created wondrous moments throughout. Makris house can be read as a conversation of dualities, of heavy and lightness, public and private and of light and darkness. The first expression of this tension can be seen from street façade, essentially two forms bifurcated by a double height black void, which forms a grand recessive entry. On the one side we have a solid, rigid, rectilinear form, seeming weighed down by its own mass. On the other, elevated from the earth by a shard of black glass, symbolic of emptiness or absence.
