Amsterdam 289 in Condesa, Mexico City by JSª

Wednesday, April 17th, 2013

Article source: JSª

In a privileged location in the Condesa neighborhood, on a rectangular property of 363 m2 (3,907 sq. ft.), ten individual housing units have been designed, in two different typologies but with distinct differences, each with different features and sizes. This creates an interesting variety within the same complex. It has two buildings, five levels each, divided by a central patio, and communicated through bridges around the perimeter that separate the social and the private areas.

Article source: Andrew Maynard Architects

These neighboring terrace homes are owned by two generations of one family. Both houses were in need of repair and update. HOUSE House is a single building that extends both homes. They are separate homes within one architecture. The new structure runs north/south while the original houses run east/west. The fence between each terrace slides away to create one large backyard.

GP House has all the basic requirements of a residential home, foyer, living room, dining area, kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 3 ½ bathrooms, studio, laundry, three-car garage, maid’s quarter, spread over two floors and connected by vertical staircase to break up the home’s dominant horizontal construction. This juxtaposition is even more striking with the use of a local stone as a finish on the cube stairs against its concrete structure.

New Canaan Residence in Connecticut by Specht Harpman Architects

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

Article source: Specht Harpman Architects

The New Canaan Residence is nestled into a lush hilltop site in this forested part of Connecticut. The house was designed to engage the landscape and immerse the occupants in the full range of environments that the site offers. What the completed house doesn’t show is its modest beginnings: this is a renovation of a 1950’s house which had a series of unsympathetic additions from the 60’s and 70’s, and whose owners originally wanted only a kitchen upgrade.

Macrocel in Yucatan, Mexico by Seijo Peon Arquitectos & Asociados

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

Article source: Seijo Peon Arquitectos

The building was designed for a mobile telephone company, and rises from an initial idea from the clients to create a “warehouse with offices”, i.e., they requested a box with a single door… a building closed to the exterior with a versatile interior that could be exploited for a variety of uses without a space hierarchy. The idea of closing the building to the exterior was mainly needed for security reasons.

House N in Noordwijk, Netherlands by Maxwan Architects + Urbanists

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

Article source: Maxwan Architects + Urbanists

Built in 1938, this Noordwijk seaside villa was originally the holiday home of a concrete factory owner. Battered and blustered by the salty sea weather over the decades, the house was in need of renovation. Besides roof replacement and basement repairs, the bedrooms, bathrooms and windows were outdated and some spaces had grown too small for the clients’ requirements. Maxwan’s additions bring new distinctive features to the house, while respecting its original character.
