Brunswick West House is a small-scale, 50-square-metre alteration and addition to a Californian Bungalow home. The addition forms a low-volume, compact intervention on the project’s site, that aims to re-engage the home with the generous north-facing garden beyond.

The modest nature of the project called for simple, incisive moves that would sidestep the need for an arduous and costly re-configuration of the existing home. In turn, our strategy looked to repurpose an ivy-lined sideway, creating a new, central entry for the home. This approach enables the home to operate succinctly in two halves: the original rooms now accommodate more private activities, while the addition forms its new social heart. These new living spaces are arranged in and around three sculptural masonry walls, creating nooks and reveals within the open plan – spaces that could offer a place to sit and share with family, or retreat within at other times.

The Omagoieaskoa House in Kortezubi, Spain by BAT – Bilbao Architecture Team

Sunday, July 1st, 2018

Article source: BAT – Bilbao Architecture Team 

The Omagoieaskoa House (officially Goizko House) is located in the heart of the Oma Valley, inside the Urdaibai Biosphere (Busturialdea, Spain). The house, wich is a 150-year-old farmhouse listed as a historical heritage building of Urdaibai, is mainly formed by stone walls and oak wood structural elements. These type of farmhouses (known in the local culture as Baserris) are the typical Basque countryside buildings. Due to their historical value, the Baserris have become one of the main symbols of the local culture. These farmhouses were inhabited by large humble families (up to 8-12 people) that lived from livestock and agriculture. Nowadays lots of Baserris are a tourist attraction and their owners have made refurbishments to adapt them to the contemporary comfort standars.

Corrugated-Sheet House in Aisai, Japan by DYA (Daisuke Yamashita Architects)

Sunday, July 1st, 2018

Article source: DYA (Daisuke Yamashita Architects)

This residence is for five families of a couple and three children in Aisai City of western Aichi Prefecture. It was built within a corner of a large site adjacent to a plot of the main house. Since urbanization in this area is controlled, the surrounding plots were by consequence largely empty; because the environment lacked a clear context, the resultant building was designed as an extremely simple geometric shape.

One Blackfriars in London, England by WSP

Sunday, July 1st, 2018

Article source: WSP

One Blackfriars, London is a mixed-use complex located near the southern bank of the Thames River that includes a 170-meter residential tower, low-rise hotel, and a three-story basement with a pool, spa, cinema, and other amenities. WSP worked with their client St. George to build and design the project, including the unique geometry of the residential tower. To develop the structural framing that would maximize apartment layouts, every floor and apartment had to be a different size and shape. Not only did WSP need a structural solution for the varied floor plans, but it also needed to design support columns that offered unobstructed views without intruding on the apartment spaces.
