Situated in a Conservation area at the edge of Brook Green in West London, this stunning house was DOS Architects’ first residential refurbishment project in London. Their client lived in one of the houses and, having bought the house next door, decided to appoint DOS Architects to create a design which merged both houses into a single family house.

Competition for Mo I Rana Waterfront (1st place) in Norway by arkitektgruppen cubus

Saturday, February 22nd, 2014

Article source: arkitektgruppen cubus

Mo i Rana has always had a primarily functional relationship to the fjord, which has been one of two major transport systems serving the local industries of iron- and concrete production, the other being the railway. The town is located far inland and the fjord has always served as a main connection with the rest of the world. The railway has served as the other main pulse connecting the town to the east and south, in addition to the two main roads E6 and E12. The railway track runs straight through the centre of the town and acts as a physical barrier between the town proper and the fjord, only surmounted by bridges or underground tunnels. This prevents the establishment of a physical and programmatic continuity linking the two.

Family house Palkovice in Frýdek-Místek, Czech Republic by QARTA ARCHITEKTURA

Saturday, February 22nd, 2014

Article source: QARTA ARCHITEKTURA

The house is situated in the periphery of Palkovice, nearby Frýdek Místek. From this site is the view of the Beskydy mountains. The first idea was to reconstruct the old house on this parcel. The original house was situated in the middle of the garden and the architecture of the house was a product of the nineties of the 20th century. After a long effort to modify the old house and to adapt it for the new requirements, we have find out, this is not the right way. So we have decided to build a new house.

House in the woods near King’s Forest in Potsdam (near Berlin), Germany by claim

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Article source: claim

Small spaciousness

The house in the woods is a residence for a couple and their guests. Despite the very limited area available for construction and the users’ requirements regarding the number of beds and rooms, a residence with a perceptible spaciousness arose. Starting from the ‘bungalow’ stereotype, the design sets openness against seclusion, introduces smooth transitions in contrast to set boundaries, emphasizes the correlation of surface and volume and, in this way, overlays the familiar with the new.

RS1 – 002 Kennedy Residence in Vancouver, Canada by Campos Leckie Studio

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Article source: Campos Leckie Studio

The project was conceived as a modernist prototype for Vancouver’s ubiquitous RS-1 zoning district. The project explored the development restrictions of the residential regulations as well as the limitations of building within an urban context. The process was meant to generate a set of guidelines for what we have termed a ‘flexible prototype’ that could address the contextual differences of individual sites in a way that allows for a customized integration of passive environmental strategies, the incorporation of exterior space as part of everyday living, and the provision of an affordable and flexible live work space.

Article source: Utopus studio

Overview: Located directly across from the Brooklyn Museum in Prospect Heights, this 2750 sq. ft. pre-war apartment commands breathtaking views of Lower Manhattan and Prospect Park.

OFFICE & HOUSE LUNA in Buenos Aires, Argentina by estudio HMA

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Article source: HM.Arquitectos 

The project is located in the southern part of the city of Buenos Aires, precisely in Parque Patricios, a neighborhood that is being promoted as a technological pole. This characteristic motivated the client to start the construction of a building that unfolds into two separate volumes, his home and an office for his business. Both buildings have in common constructive and material decisions, however they show a strong formal contrast. In addition, the two volumes meet sustainable conditions: ventilated facades, reuse of rainwater and FCS certified wood ( OSB ).

Özyeğin University Student Residence in Çekmeköy Campus, Turkey by ARK

Article source: ARK 

To mitigate the high density of accommodations required on the site, the design adopts a strategy of a tri-parte form and discontinuous stepped silhouette.  These formal ideas are complimented by the unique polychrome façade that merges the large building with the surrounding landscape.
