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.
