Outpost in Idaho by Olson Kundig

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig 

Set in the remote, harsh high desert of Idaho, Outpost is an artist’s live/work studio and sculpture garden. The building’s compactness restricts site impact and reinforces the desire to be outside. This is a windy place, and the enclosed “paradise garden,” is separated from the wild landscape by thick masonry walls. The footprint of the house is the limit of intrusion into the land—a simple, clearly defined space. This structure exemplifies Kundig’s belief that the architect’s job is to create an experience of place.

Article source: People’s Architecture Office

Mrs. Fan is from a traditional Chinese family. Newlyweds like her are expected to purchase a car and move into a new house in the suburbs to start the next phase of their life.

Ham Saye Apartment (The Neighbor) in Tehran, Iran by Razan Architects

Sunday, July 30th, 2017

Article source: Razan Architects

Based on the urban situation, people’s lifestyle and revitalizing the concept of reconciling human and nature, the architect tried to create a pattern within which all the expectations fit. “The building is called The Neighbor in order to be neighboring to the shading tree in the yard. We want it to be arisen from the nature and to describe architecture as a living paradigm.” -Said the architect. One of the remarkable specifications of the project is using recycled materials in order to lower the budget. The white façade is a product of combining cement and recycled stone. “We tried to bring the architecture into the homes of ones who had forgotten the “Quality” because of its high cost.” -Said the architect. Characteristics that describe the essence of design: Communication: The interior communal spaces provide the opportunity for the residents to easily communicate. The yard has short walls so the neighbors can let themselves inside, rest under the shade of the tree and have a friendly chat. Diversity: Order is nature’s quiddity. Architect looks for creation of inner order based on diversity as well as harmony. Reducing repetitive elements and using a modular design system resulted in a variety of different apartments, both in the structure of the plan and the exterior façade. Originality: Everything seems original here. All the spaces are designed based on a function. Being a home: The units get enough amount of daylight. Terraces are like private little gardens that have a great view to the city.
