Skycrown Terraces in Austin, Texas by Bercy Chen Studio

Friday, September 29th, 2017

Article source: Chen Studio

Sky Crown Terraces are two identical and adjacent houses designed and built by Bercy Chen Studio in Austin, Texas. The monolithic form, courtyards, and habitable flat roofs evoke the vernacular of the American Southwest interpreted by Modernism. Inspired by the sculpture of Michael Heizer, Eduardo Chillida, and Jorge Yazpik, the strategy of volumetric subtraction enhances the materiality of the basic conception of the houses as stucco boxes crowned by steel panels. The consequentiality of the vernacular together with the elegance of orthogonal abstraction clad in nakedly simple materials do nothing to distract from the peculiar delights of the understated landscape and raw climate of the Texas Hill Country.

House Komoro in Japan by KASA ARCHITECTS

Friday, September 29th, 2017

Article source: KASA ARCHITECTS

This is a one-storey residential house for a family of four―a couple and two children―and is built in Komoro City, Nagano Prefecture. With views of Mount Asama to the north and the Yatsugatake Mountains far south, I planned a simple one-storey house with a shed roof and an open space in the south side. This property of about 450 ㎡ is in the shape of a flagpole, where the pole part accounts for 80 ㎡. I decided to start with the plan for the environment―the placement and arrangement of the building and the design of the environment for the remaining 370 ㎡. I thought about how to achieve a design for people’s lives to flourish as they interact with the site, carefully identifying each factor individually, such as the flow of movement to the grandparents’ house located next door, handling the cold down wind from Mount Asama, preserving the view on the south side of the Yatsugatake Mountains in the distance, the connection to the outside of the property, the flow of air, etc. Then, by creating a configuration akin to a courtyard by arranging the building in an L-shape and arranging trees on the other side that had a slope to create a lush environment as well as a flow of movement to the grandparents’ house, I aimed to create an environment connected to real nature where families could connect.

Rehabilitation of a Traditional Housing in Moscoso, Spain by LIQE arquitectura

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

Article source:  LIQE arquitectura 

Usually a project involves creating something out of nothing; but sometimes, as in this case, it is about strengthening something that was already there.

A long stone building, with a powerful balcony facing the valley, to the north. An elevated shed leaning on a warped and also excessively long wood beam, with three facades made out of stone and one out of wood, to the south. The Cruceiro Grande, where three religious processions become one, is out on the street, to the east. And an impressive Hórreo supported in stone beams under which one enters the garden, to the west. And then, in the centre: the “eira“, the work yard, sheltered from the wind, the main focus of everything around it.

Renovation of protected houses in Bruges, Belgium by atelier tom vanhee

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

Article source: atelier tom vanhee

Two disused protected 17th-century houses on a brewery site in the centre of Bruges were rebuilt into a family home (with existing retail and storage space).

The different window types and added rear façade are witness of successive conversions over time. The design starts from the changes the building has undergone and adds a new layer. The historical and authentic parts are kept or reconstructed and, where necessary, structurally improved. These elements (doors, fireplaces, beams, stairs) go hand in hand with new elements, and remain legible.

House on Krokholmen in Värmdö, Sweden by Tham & Videgård

Tuesday, September 26th, 2017

Article source: Tham & Videgård

The site is a promontory on the relatively small island of Krokholmen in Stockholm’s outer archipelago: a typical archipelago landscape with windswept dwarf pines and soft mountain outcrops produced by the inland ice. The plot benefits from open views, in the east all the way out to the lighthouse Almagrundet in the open sea, and it is at times exposed to strong winds. The family wanted a maintenance-free vacation home in one level with social space both inside and outside.
