Thursday, July 4th, 2013

Article source: Areal Architecten

As the end of a row of houses is positioning itself a sculptural volume that is freed from under the harness of the Flemish typology. The compulsive grid behind the neighbors are hiding in this corner house broken up into unbound use of space, surrounded by a pretty pattern of window openings.

Goolwa Beach House in South Australia by Grieve Gillett

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

Article source: Grieve Gillett

The brief called for a low maintenance dwelling (used in the first instance as a weekend retreat and later to become a permanent dwelling) that would engage with its great location.  It is in a highly corrosive environment 250 metres from breaking surf.  The southern (rear) boundary of the site abuts a coastal reserve containing primary, secondary and tertiary dunes.  The house has been sited to maximise its relationship and connection to this wonderful dune landscape and the external materials chosen will weather to reflect the exposure of the site.

Aranya House in India by Modo designs

Sunday, June 2nd, 2013

Article source: Modo designs  

Designed as a single floor dwelling, this house is a luxurious sprawl in the lap of a natural surrounding. The house is responsive to the series of palm trees that existed before and essentially orients itself towards it. It is designed to be inclusive of the natural elements- the sun, earth, water, air and fragments of the blue sky.  The layout segregates through a level difference, the parent’s and son’s living units and yet unites through a meeting place, which is the more open central bay.
