House Between Party Walls in Barcelona, Spain by Josep Ferrando Architecture

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Article source: Josep Ferrando Architecture 

The architect Josep Ferrando resolves the complex urban conditions of the context and the site in which the house is located – less than 5 meters wide and with a particular topography that constrains the parcel between two streets situated at different heights – starting the conception of the project from the shaping of the volume.

Gallatin River Bank House in Big Sky, Montana by Prentiss + Balance + Wickline Architects

Saturday, November 26th, 2016

Article source: Prentiss + Balance + Wickline Architects

The River Bank House sits along the Gallatin River just outside Big Sky, Montana. The clients love to entertain, so the house was set up to create an open and casual atmosphere with a strong connection to the outdoors. The house is oriented toward the best view of the river while maintaining good solar orientation for taking advantage of solar heat gain in the winter and keeping out the hot summer sun. The large roof over the living room serves to shade large areas of glass in the summer, while geothermal heat pumps and high levels of insulation help keep it warm and energy efficient in the winter. In such an extreme climate the house was specifically designed to withstand both extremes of the temperature spectrum.

Seascape in Sagaponack, New York by Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

Article source: Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects

Located in an environmentally sensitive area, this house was built to replace an existing non-conforming structure occupying the same footprint. A pool house and pool were added to the adjoining and eventually merged lot. Staying sensitive to the areas vegetation and proximity to water, the two structures speak to each other across elevated decks and living areas. They are built on piles with breakaway walls that allow for flooding to come through as needed, while leaving the structures intact. Acknowledging the wear and tear of the seaside setting led to the use of teak siding, decking, and window and door frames. The teak is intentionally left to weather naturally to allow the buildings to grey out and recede into the setting over time. The house was designed for an active family who likes to entertain. The living area on the main floor easily opens up to the water facing deck, allowing for indoor outdoor living. A private guest suite is accessed off the family room on this level, while family rooms take in the breathtaking views on the upper floor. Here too, everyone shares access to decks and views, with the master suite in the most prominent location. The family loves water sports. The lower level otherwise uninhabitable, becomes a storage area for canoes and kayaks. The lower level of the pool house provides ample storage for sea vehicles as well. Special consideration is taken into account for the passage of the sun, providing overhangs to cut out the summer rays. Shading elements throughout prevent unwanted heat gain, while operable fenestration allows for cross breezes and natural cooling. Landscaping here is minimal, with no added fill, which may disturb the natural setting.

SYDNEY STREET in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects 

Sydney Street involved the re-calibration of 100 years of Queenslander vernacular into a contemporary inner-city home. The idea was to renovate and extend the cottage in such a way as to reinforce and maintain the original geometry and form. The new architecture is expressed in the outdoor room and the ground plane of the ‘undercroft’ where brickwork has been chosen to ‘anchor’ the house into the site. A sympathetic but edgy approach to detailing and material completes an engaging and relevant addition to the tree-lined streetscape.

Canyon House in Los Angeles, California by ANX – Aaron Neubert Architects

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

Article source: ANX – Aaron Neubert Architects

The site for this 4000 sf residence consists of a steep descending hillside property within the Hollywood Hills. Constructed adjacent to the street to permit access to the foyer and garage, the home’s entry experience is developed to screen the courtyard and stair hall from passing automobile lights and noise. In contrast, and due to the potential for panoramic views of Los Angeles and the adjacent Runyon Canyon and Wattles Canyon Parks, our design approach focused on creating transparency at the rear of the home with fixed and operable floor to ceiling glazing, opening the entire home to the environment.
