Arches Boulogne in Paris, France by Antonini Darmon architectes

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016

Article source: Antonini Darmon architectes

The project B5 Boulogne is part of the urban development zone called Seguin Rives de Seine near Paris. This area was formerly home to the monumental Renault factories. As a result of the delocalization of these factories, a surface of 74 hectares has been liberated. This new area named “Macrolot B5” has been divided into seven smaller blocks distributed around a large urban garden. Seven architects were selected to design seven different buildings, organized by an urban coordinator in charge of the Macrolot B5.

Los Feliz Residence in California by Surfacedesign, Inc

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016

Article source: Surfacedesign, Inc

The Dundee Residence landscape transforms a simple pool deck and poorly maintained hillside landscape into an exuberant space for living and entertaining, and ultimately a dynamic play space for a mother (and Hollywood stylist) and her young children.  The house was built speculatively in the 1990’s and designed to mimic the steep architectural pedigrees of its international style neighbors.  Dundee sits perched high in the hills with sweeping views of Downtown Los Angeles to the South and the chaparral hills of Griffith Park to the east.  Located in hills above the Los Feliz, the neighborhood is home to actors, rockstars and Hollywood elite and to some of LA’s most significant architecture, including Frank Llloyd Wright’s Ennis-Brown House and Richard Neutra’s Lovell Health House.

NAXOS BUILDING in Frankfurt, Germany by STEFAN FORSTER ARCHITEKTEN

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

Article source: STEFAN FORSTER ARCHITEKTEN

In the middle of Frankfurt´s Nordend district, this new residential block was built to passive house standards on the site of a former Naxos-Union factory. Retaining and integrating the distinctive trees along Wingertstrasse was an important part of the design considerations: the comb-like structure of the complex on this side, with its broad area of green in front of the apartments, is a direct response to this situation. The private gardens of the ground-floor apartments are located in the five courtyards. The back of the complex is oriented towards the listed Naxoshalle, the last remaining relic from the site´s former industrial use. On the corner of Wingertstrasse and Wittelsbacherallee the block is finished off conventionally with a corner tower. The continuous clinker cladding on the ground floor strengthens the ensemble character and is also a reference to its urban context. All the dual-aspect apartments have large loggias to the front and to the rear. In total 69 freehold and 47 rental apartments were built here to the passive house standard.

Team Living House in Tokyo, Japan by Masatoshi Hirai Architects Atelier

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

Article source: Masatoshi Hirai Architects Atelier

This is a renovation project of an apartment in downtown Tokyo. The client said unintentionally that they want to spend a brilliant time together nowhere else but in their house. Then I thought, “Indeed”. I always find that houses around us are way too far from the reality of each family life and communities, and they all look alike. It seems as if there were no identity in family life, which is ridiculous.

Medlin Residence in Raleigh, North Carolina by in situ studio

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

Article source: in situ studio

Our clients wanted a four-bedroom house with large public spaces that would open onto a constrained suburban site near downtown Raleigh. The existing site was long north to south and sloped down to the street on the north side. A stream bisected the site near the street, and the associated floodplain precluded construction on the front half of the property. A dramatic slope at the rear of the site prevented locating the house far back on the property. Our response to these constraints was a compact, two-story “L” that creates an private outdoor space between the house and the hillside.

The Corbett Residence in Bahama, North Carolina by in situ studio

Friday, June 17th, 2016

Article source: in situ studio

The Corbett Residence is on a wooded site, down a winding drive. The drive is thin and meanders between trees to protect the house from view. The house is a low black box that strikes a line across the slope, mimicking the horizon. The house is at the edge of a hill, above a creek, and is oriented to admit light and views of the forest. At the east end of the house, the master bedroom looks out to a large red oak and fern glade. Our clients, who are restrained, contributed beautiful ideas and challenged us to express necessity.

Nook Residence in Mansonville, Canada by MU Architecture

Saturday, June 11th, 2016

Article source: v2com

Located in a quiet area of the Eastern Townships in Quebec, the Nook Residence sits in continuity with the landscape in which it is part. Turning its back to the street, it offers a virtually blind facade that encourages discovery and piques curiosity. Strategically located openings and a large gap in the white mass give a hint at the beautiful scenery below as we approach the building.
