Atlas House in Eindhoven, The Netherlands by MONADNOCK

Thursday, April 13th, 2017

Article source: MONADNOCK 

The Atlas House is situated on the edge of the city of Eindhoven, opposite a historic rural estate. The compact square building manifests itself as a tower. It is rotated 45 degrees relative to the street and is detached from the boundaries of the plot. All windows are grouped around the corners and at times allow for diagonal views through the volume. Internally, the rotation provides striking vistas along the edges of the forest. The depth of the façade openings reveals that the size and colour of the bricks is the same both inside and outside. These define the character of the raw and restrained interior. The external facades offer no clues about the playful offsets of the internal spaces. The interior reveals a collection of rooms of various heights and floor levels, each giving their respective window openings specific characteristics.

Wow! Sta. in Chuo-ku Niigata, Japan by Takeru Shoji Architects Co., Ltd.

Thursday, April 13th, 2017

Article source: Takeru Shoji Architects Co., Ltd. 

Wow! Sta. is situated in Horinouchi, in the Central Ward of Niigata City – an area where the city center gradually begins to give way to the suburbs. The scenery lining the nearby main road is dominated by large commercial and retail buildings and their accompanying signage.

The businesses, houses and multilevel apartments that sprawl out from Niigata Station constitute this typical inner-city area.

Located just one street back from the main road with its dazzling lights and the din of the traffic, we find an area that is surprisingly calm, unlit by even street lights.

Nest House by BEARprogetti

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Article source: BEARprogetti

You must constantly try to climb very high, if you want to be able to see very far. (Constantin Brâncuşi).

Like an eagle’s nest, Nest House takes advantage of its location to become a modern shelter on the top of the mountain. Even from the first inspection at the house, when there were no walls yet, it has been clear: nothing more needed besides what was seen out of the stately windows! That’s why all the spaces of the everyday life have been gathered together in a single, wide, open space. It would have been a huge mistake to foreclose the overall view of the landscape by splitting it up into small rooms trapped between walls … and so even the home life leads through the shape of the space, in a contemporary way to live it and to enjoy it … a few and simple objects define the functions at once: the kitchen with its island, the breakfast table, the table and the sofa. The large central fireplace is the common element of all these areas, it heats the rooms and the heart all day long.

Viertel Zwei Plus Mixed-Use Residential & Commercial Development in Vienna, Austria by Hariri & Hariri Architecture

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

Article source: Hariri & Hariri Architecture 

This master-plan includes six buildings and an undulating landscape as a tray holding all the different activities, buildings, technologies and sustainable systems. Each building is unique in shape, form, and size held together by an Interlocking Wrapper in wood and stone. In contrast to the typical repetitive and contemporary residential projects of the 20th century, we have maximized the variety of apartments, views, exterior spaces and experiences. The wrapper is the element that unifies the different variables. The same concept applies to the bleacher buildings, making them part of the larger whole while preserving their historic integrity.

Lautaro House in Linares, Chile by Felipe Alarcón Carreño Arquitecto

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

Article source: Felipe Alarcón Carreño Arquitecto

Buildings not only convey their physical characteristics, but also symbolic values attributable to experiences and memories, including what we imagine and what we know.

In the case of a house, the bond between the user and the building represents a relationship that gains in symbolic value with everyday use.

Urban beach home in Barcelona, Spain by Egue y Seta

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

Article source: Egue y Seta 

Whether you like it or not, Barcelona, for many non-locals, is also, a beach. A beach bathing the shores of an open-air museum, a coast line bursting with tapas bars and the seafront of a real city with its very own customs and history. But always, even more so during the summer, a beach. A beach that attracts real estate investors who want to turn the whole into a touristic resort, but also a spot that catches the eye and stills the heart of young couples in love that, in the antipodes of the above, try to capture the very essence of the Barcelonian´s way of life in a few square meters with a view to turn them into their own summer private retreat. This was the case of Jacques and Hannes and their cozy little flat in the heart of the traditional fisherman´s neighborhood of La Barceloneta.

360 Villa in The Netherlands by 123DV

Sunday, April 9th, 2017

Article source: 123DV

The family consists of a couple and their beautiful Alaskan malamute dogs. This time, our slogan ‘Living in a tailored suit’ got a special dynamic: the tailoring of our design to the requirements of an ultimate personal experience of living also concerned the arctic dogs that are important in their lives. It is important for the couple to stay in contact with their dogs, both in and outside of the house. The dogs ask a lot of attention and therefore they need a lot of contact with their owners. Also the dogs need a shelter outside.

Grid in Japan by Satoshi Kurosaki / APOLLO Architects & Associates

Sunday, April 9th, 2017

Article source: Satoshi Kurosaki / APOLLO Architects & Associates 

The client for this project has a large art collection, and wanted to start a new chapter in life with his family in a house with museum-like qualities that would take advantage of this collection. The neighborhood surrounding the site is quiet, so in order to keep noise to a minimum and not create an intrusive feeling, we proposed a single-story reinforced concrete structure. Like the exterior, the interior features a monochrome color scheme that serves as a good background for artwork. The building and finishing materials were also carefully selected and kept to a minimum, giving the spaces an austere atmosphere.
