“DETACHED HOUSE IN DROSIA”, in ATHENS, Greece by Katerina Valsamaki

Sunday, July 26th, 2015

Article source:  Katerina Valsamaki

The 580sqm detached house is organized in the form of an L shape inside the oblong site and accommodates a four member family. The integration of the residence into a semi-urban environment is dealt with as a scenario of revelation and dissimulation between private, public and semi-public space; that is to say creating a fluidity of the limits between the living spaces and the public spaces of the building, without however underestimating the importance of privacy. The garden is the focal point of the residence.

1.8M Width House in Tokyo, Japan by YUUA Architects and Associates

Thursday, July 23rd, 2015

Article source: YUUA Architects and Associates

A house where light shines in and fresh air flows between the floating floors.

The size of the property is approximately width 2.5m and depth 11m.  This small and narrow piece of land is a typical “eels’ bed” site, where one can reach his/her arm from left wall to right wall even though buildings stand very tight and compact next to one another.  We have tried to reserve as much space as possible as well as to provide psychological openness for the resident.  The house has been designed to follow the concept “A house with playfulness where people and cats live happily”.

Molewa-Mount Lu World Architecture International design competition in Ruichang, China by AtelierBlur/Georges Hung Architecte D.P.L.G. & Partners

Thursday, July 23rd, 2015

Article source: AtelierBlur/Georges Hung Architecte D.P.L.G. & Partners

Competition winning scheme for Plot 15 of the MOLEWA residential design competition in Ruichang, Jianxi Provence of China.

Residential design in China faces multitudes of restrictive design issues: One, facing heavy regulations imposed by local planning bureaus residential design often results in very strict interpretations of massing and building separations. Second, a developer-led and market driven standard of apartment layout creates a homogeneous and monotonous building typology that litters the urban landscape offering very little choice to potential buyer / inhabitants. Thirdly, out-of-date local customs remains a design barrier that is difficult to overcome by users accustomed to certain arrangements of functional layout that is a reflection of the developer-led model, fueling the perpetual circle of the same type of residential layouts.
