Dragon Court Village in Aichi, Japan by Eureka

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

Article source: Eureka 

Within our fieldwork in Asian cities and villages, conducted against a backdrop of increased threats from severe weather and global warming, we sometimes encounter with adaptable housing cultures that border against natural disasters; ecological and customary architectural behaviors that have likened to elements of the natural environment; and methods to help maintain and continue such things. Today, with the rapid urbanization of Southeast Asia, especially from China to the Indochina, the act of observing native and traditional architectures and villages is synonymous with observing their very own destruction and acceptance. The life of barely scraping by, sometimes becoming subject to unlawfully dense surroundings, is very much reliant on the ability to tolerate ambiguity, semitransparent and gradational special qualities, and the architecture`s redundant and updating nature. In this scheme, such qualities were pulled into a tangible plan.

Américas 1500 in Guadalajara, Mexico by Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

Article source: Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos

This mixed-use project for offices and a hotel is located in the heart of the city of Guadalajara. Its formal, emphatic, and unified volumetrics express its iconic nature.

The formal concept arises from the mixed-use character it will acquire, consisting of four stacked geometric volumes. Two of these are slightly offset, and exactly aligned on the rear face. These gestures of displacement are designed to interrupt the robustness of the building and express an elegant sense of movement. The lowest volume houses the hotel, and the three volumes above it are allocated to office use by three different corporations, each occupying one volume in its entirety.

House among the olive grove in Kidron, Israel by Henkin Irit & Shavit Zohar

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

Article source: Henkin Irit & Shavit Zohar

Kidron village consists of large agricultural estates, is situated on a plain turf in which the size of the plots dictates large distances between the various residential houses.

Olive vineyards are the main component on the land on which the Aloni family house was designed and built. The idea was to design a “connector” between the front and the back vineyards. In order to do so, the house was placed in morphological correspondence to the olive trees, with the olive rows parallel and perpendicular to the front of the house together.

San Carlos Midcentury Modern Remodel in California by Klopf Architecture

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

Article source: Klopf Architecture

The previous owner of this 1960s modern home covered over the walls of glass with plywood and installed a massive awning at the rear of the house, blocking out most light and connection with the outdoors. The original interior had a maze-like layout starting with a small entry area and moving into too many hallways. In short, the house felt dark and closed-in. Nevertheless the new owners saw the potential in the home, purchased it, and hired Klopf Architecture to help them realize the potential. Today it is an open, light and bright, indoor-outdoor, clean and simple, modernist home for two professionals and their young son.

The house was designed for a couple. The husband is a college professor at art department. The site is placed on a hillside with a sweeping view and a broad slope to the northwest, and faces a mountain to the south.

CBR House in Bío Bío Region, Chile by Cristian Berrios Architects

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

Article source: Cristian Berrios Architects

The restriction of a square plant (9 x 9 meters) is the context in which the project is developed. A central aisle with a dimension between enclosure and corridor defines the spatial structure that organizes this house. In its geometric center a skylight floods of light both levels crossing the floor of the second level. For this soil, flat steel bars were used, reminiscent of the urban gratings that conceal the installations and an unknown surface of the cities. On this structure, in the center of the dwelling, the experience can be of weightlessness or vertigo, the sensation is tensioned with the skylight that accompanies in concordance.
