MCDhouse in Texas by Adia

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

Article source: Adia

Story: How a 22-year-old architecture student turned scraps into a sustainable paradise for a family in need.

The MCDhouse was built in cooperation with the Sustainable Builders’ Guild of Huntsville (Texas) as part of a local initiative to increase earth consciousness while providing homes for low-income families. Built to the minimum square footage allowed by law (for three residents), the house challenges the “hermetically-sealed box” mentality and sets out to prove that large enclosed homes are not necessary for comfort, functionality, and dignity.

CASA LA CAÑADA in Santiago, Chile by Ricardo Torrejón Schellhorn

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

Article source: Ricardo Torrejón Schellhorn

This house is set on a 1,060 sqm site in the last flat urban area of eastern Santiago before the Andes begin.

The plot is 15m wide by 67m length with an existing garden with mature 40 year old trees.

The original house, built back in the 70’s, took no particular advantage of the garden. Despite being uninhabited for almost 20 years the backyard was luckily well preserved and felt like a forgotten park.

Article source: DeForest Architects

Set on a steep hillside overlooking Lake Washington in Seattle, this project realizes the owners’ vision of living in tune with changing light and views. Simple lines, flexible living spaces, well-organized storage, and a rooftop garden all add up to a nest that is anything but “empty.”

Alaloum Board Game Café in Nea Filadelfia, Athens, Greece by Triopton Architects

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

Article source: Triopton Architects

Alaloum Board Game Cafe is located in Nea Filadelfeia, a suburb in north east of Athens, and addresses board game lovers.

According to Triopton Αrchitects, “the very specific function of board gaming inspires and determines the design concept.”

The café is developed in two levels of total space of 160 sq.m. The concept behind the café is mainly focusing on preserving and enhancing the strict geometries of the structure, thus creating a welcoming, yet subversive environment influenced by the creative imagination and variegation of a board game.

BUBBLE BUILDING in Shanghai, China by 3GATTI ARCHITECTURE STUDIO

Friday, October 25th, 2013

Article source: 3GATTI ARCHITECTURE STUDIO

When I moved to from Rome to Shanghai I noticed many environmental differences. One was the fact that when I looked out the window here, it didn’t give me the same good feeling like it usually did in Rome. It was probably a combination of the grey buildings, the immortal grey sky and the fact you couldn’t open the window due to the outside air pollution.

BOX HOUSE in Strathfield, Australia by Zouk Architects

Friday, October 25th, 2013

Article source: Zouk Architects

The project is located in one of the most sought after region with exclusive real estate properties known as the golden triangle of Strathfield, NSW Australia. The leafy suburb predominantly has pre-war bungalows and houses contributing to conservative streetscapes. Due to the ineffectiveness of the existing dwelling in its planning, relation to outdoors surrounding and maintenance cost, the client has decided to start afresh by completely rebuilding.
