S APARTMENT in NEUILLY-SUR-SEINE, FRANCE by Dwek Architectes

Friday, April 28th, 2017

Article source: Dwek Architectes 

Interior design is one of the disciplines that Olivier Dwek undertakes with a passion. His taste for the interaction of materials and unexpected, exclusive textures leads him to conduct all kinds of experiments with seasoned artisans. Working together, they engage in treatments of materials that generate sometimes unexpected results. For this Parisian apartment, the materials are combined and confronted following a rhythm that is metered down to the last detail. Nothing allows itself to be fully understood from the outset. Olivier Dwek likes to cover his tracks. Brushed aluminium, which boldly dominates the composition of the reception room, offers moiré reflections that could be mistaken with the grey velvet. The sense of a somewhat futuristic sophistication which he elicits is nuanced by touches of American walnut and natural foalskin introduced in the selected items of furniture. The stone flooring, shaped by the years it has spent in a riverbed, in turn creates an unfathomable impression, a vibrancy that appeals and questions. In this highly architectural, urban environment, it was important to incorporate light and nature. According to Olivier Dwek, one of the major revolutions in contemporary architecture involves the thickness of window frames. Having now become imperceptible, they enable the exterior to reach right to the heart of this city home.

The House of Prajna in Gyeonggi-do, South Korea by studio_GAON

Friday, April 28th, 2017

Article source: studio_GAON

<The House of Prajna> seems like a vessel heading for the woods, embraced by the forest, with the pentagon shape of building site reminding of that of ship. On the bow of ship shape, a persimmon tree over hundred year old branches its arms toward the large sky with hollowed trunk.  Although this house is a result of intentional design, I feel like it is already been completed by thousands of interactions of invisible components. Every time I visit, I feel like appreciating the work of someone else’s.

Habitatge M11 in Catalonia, Spain by FFWD Arquitectes

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Article source: FFWD Arquitectes  

In this flat situated in Barcelona’s Eixample, our starting point was an unfortunate period renovation from the 1980s.

At first glance, it seemed like the ’80s had erased all the original and distinctive elements of the space, which dates to 1875. But after some light “cleaning”, we uncovered some of the original elements, and realized they could be the soul for the new space. These elements were traditional Catalan hydraulic cement tiles, and exposed structural elements of the building, including exposed brick walls and the wooden beamed ceilings.

Light-House in Hsinchu, Taiwan by Shen Ting Tseng Architects

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Article source: Shen Ting Tseng Architects

Light-House is located in Hsinchu County, Taiwan. This multi-storied residential building block is designed in consideration of common Taiwanese terrace style houses. This project seeks to rethink the fundamentals of this particular housing model and intends to reinvigorate its underlining idea as “Lian-dong” (describing a continuous housing block) and “Tou-tian” (terrace houses describing buildings with roof spaces open to the sky) in the design approach.

Double Duplex in Toronto, Canada by Batay-Csorba Architects

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Article source: v2com

The Double Duplex was created in response to the cities growing need for alternative housing models due to the rising cost of urban real estate and the need for urban densification within Toronto’s established residential neighbourhoods. A proliferation of high and mid-rise condo’s have densified the urban core and serve as the predominant model for entry level home ownership within the city. However, very few new low rise infill models of densification or affordable living within Toronto’s sought after historic residential neighbourhoods have been developed.

IRON PORCH HOUSE in Nagykovácsi, Hungary by Földes és Társai Építésziroda

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Article source:  Földes és Társai Építésziroda

The 726 sqm site, being reminiscent of a fairy glade, is located at the northern part of Nagykovácsi.  The garden surrounded by young fruit trees and pines on three sides has idyllic atmosphere. There are cottages, some new family homes and most of all green all around. The square site is slightly sloped to the street and wide enough for a long house to fit in between its borders.  These makings suggested that the fourth side of the garden should be closed by the house itself creating intimate atmosphere inside.

Wilson House in Chiba, Japan by Klein Dytham architecture

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Article source: Klein Dytham architecture 

Wilson House is a weekend house in a relaxed beachside town in Chiba, an hour and a half by train from Tokyo.

The house combines the aspirations of both client and architect – the client wanted the house to have a feeling of real solidity, and Klein Dytham architecture was keen to open the house to its magnificent setting. In meeting these two goals, KDa found inspiration in the wooden platform trays – called sanbo – found in Japan’s Shinto temples. These small trays have a built-in stand, and are used in Shinto rituals to present offerings of food or other special items to the enshrined gods. KDa reinterpreted this form as a building with a solid base – two heavy walls of concrete supporting a concrete tray. Arranged on this tray is the “offering” – a variety of lightweight, wooden-framed boxes.

House with Gardens and Roofs in Hamamatsu, Japan by ARII IRIE Architects

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Article source: ARII IRIE Architects

The house is located in Hamamatsu, a city located on the southern coast of Central Japan, known for its warm climate. The house is a detached extension of an existing house built in 1983. Our aim was to create a whole, old and new altogether rather than emphasizing the contrast between the two. Linear volumes stretching in the east-west direction, spread over the site leaving spaces in between, which are terraces and gardens. The group of roofs of the new volumes relate to that of the existing house, creating a sense of continuation between old and new.
