Novell Ikebana in Neemrana, India by Design Forum International

Friday, November 25th, 2016

Article source: Design Forum International 

Novell Ikebana was planned as a housing development that would cater to the economic and mid-premium segment. It is located in the outskirts of NCR, right off NH8, near the Japanese industrial zone in Neemrana. It was conceived as a utilitarian and functionality-driven housing scheme that will set new benchmarks in housing design in the rapidly developing B-towns in North India. Yet, within the design, there are provisions, avenues, methods and expressions that allow for lifestyle and design to be incorporated artistically and tastefully.

1770 in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Friday, November 25th, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects 

1770 is a bold, rustic beach house on a truly unique site on the edge of the Coral Sea. The east-facing house is conceived around a northerly courtyard (which sits in the lee of the wind) with transparent walls allowing panoramic views from all parts of the house. A rustic, raw material palette of stone, silvering timber and textured plaster speaks of the natural weathering that this place is all about.

Article source: Aedas

Designed by Andrew Bromberg at Aedas, Gemdale Changshou Road is located within the inner ring of Shanghai urban city, near the historic Changde Road with close proximity to two metro stations and a planned future green area in the residential zone on the south. The 45,000-square-metre project consists of an office tower and a retail podium. The project had an interesting challenge as a bridge between the low-rise, residential developments to the south and Changshou Road to the north.

Retoños House in Quito, Ecuador by ESEcolectivo

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

Article source: ESEcolectivo

The Retoños house belongs to a large extended family made up of several smaller families. The clients, Alvaro and María, wanted a house in which to bring together their 16 family members, including children and grandchildren. As a close-knit family, they get together very often. Until now, this took place in a small apartment in Quito, so they were looking for a quieter place far from the noise and drab environment of the city.

Seascape in Sagaponack, New York by Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

Article source: Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects

Located in an environmentally sensitive area, this house was built to replace an existing non-conforming structure occupying the same footprint. A pool house and pool were added to the adjoining and eventually merged lot. Staying sensitive to the areas vegetation and proximity to water, the two structures speak to each other across elevated decks and living areas. They are built on piles with breakaway walls that allow for flooding to come through as needed, while leaving the structures intact. Acknowledging the wear and tear of the seaside setting led to the use of teak siding, decking, and window and door frames. The teak is intentionally left to weather naturally to allow the buildings to grey out and recede into the setting over time. The house was designed for an active family who likes to entertain. The living area on the main floor easily opens up to the water facing deck, allowing for indoor outdoor living. A private guest suite is accessed off the family room on this level, while family rooms take in the breathtaking views on the upper floor. Here too, everyone shares access to decks and views, with the master suite in the most prominent location. The family loves water sports. The lower level otherwise uninhabitable, becomes a storage area for canoes and kayaks. The lower level of the pool house provides ample storage for sea vehicles as well. Special consideration is taken into account for the passage of the sun, providing overhangs to cut out the summer rays. Shading elements throughout prevent unwanted heat gain, while operable fenestration allows for cross breezes and natural cooling. Landscaping here is minimal, with no added fill, which may disturb the natural setting.

Buena Vista in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects

Buena Vista challenges the idea of what a house looks like in a contemporary Brisbane suburb. The architectural idea centres around a brick and sheet metal industrial aesthetic that simultaneously references and subverts the local vernacular. The house embraces the courtyard plan which affords the occupants city views whilst allowing an intimate and private lifestyle.

SYDNEY STREET in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects 

Sydney Street involved the re-calibration of 100 years of Queenslander vernacular into a contemporary inner-city home. The idea was to renovate and extend the cottage in such a way as to reinforce and maintain the original geometry and form. The new architecture is expressed in the outdoor room and the ground plane of the ‘undercroft’ where brickwork has been chosen to ‘anchor’ the house into the site. A sympathetic but edgy approach to detailing and material completes an engaging and relevant addition to the tree-lined streetscape.

Canyon House in Los Angeles, California by ANX – Aaron Neubert Architects

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

Article source: ANX – Aaron Neubert Architects

The site for this 4000 sf residence consists of a steep descending hillside property within the Hollywood Hills. Constructed adjacent to the street to permit access to the foyer and garage, the home’s entry experience is developed to screen the courtyard and stair hall from passing automobile lights and noise. In contrast, and due to the potential for panoramic views of Los Angeles and the adjacent Runyon Canyon and Wattles Canyon Parks, our design approach focused on creating transparency at the rear of the home with fixed and operable floor to ceiling glazing, opening the entire home to the environment.
