Claremont Residence in Los Angeles, California by Altius Architecture (designed using ArchiCAD)

Sunday, March 4th, 2012

Article source: Altius Architecture

This home is sited on an amazing property that offered both the intimacy of a classic English landscape as well as expansive panoramic views over rolling, rural fields towards Lake Ontario. The goal of the design was to embrace the immediate intimacy of the site while revealing, through the architecture, the extensive views offered from various vantage points within the home. The exposed heavy timber Douglas Fir structure hugs the landscape allowing large expanses of glass to bring the surroundings inside while providing dramatic moments when the endless view exposes itself.

Cvetkova Apartments in Murska Sobota, Slovenia by Andrej Kalamar

Sunday, March 4th, 2012

Article source: Andrej Kalamar

Apartment buildings are located in a redeveloped downtown area that has recently been converted from derelict industrial to public and residential use. Despite its central position in the city, the site is removed from main roads and downtown bustle. Next to the new music school on the north of the city block, three apartment buildings rise from a green surface. Their positions reflect the heterogeneous surroundings; variety of directions influences the varying orientations of the volumes. As there are no parallel facades, each apartment can establish an individual character without obstruction.

Cliff House in Ontario, Canada by Altius Architecture (designed using ArchiCAD)

Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

Article source: Altius Architecture Inc.

Set on the Cliff-side of a much-cherished lake, this cottage seeks to enhance the extraordinary surrounding scenery through the thoughtful integration of building elements with the natural assets of the site and terrain. This dwelling emerges form the rock formation of the cliff using the same local granite to form its base. A central core acts as an anchor that circulates movement, light and air into the living spaces that pinwheel and cantilever off into the landscape. In spite of its modest scale, the residence easily accommodates the family of four by providing amenity for dinning, cooking, living, reading and sleeping which are each carefully tuned to the unique view, light and breezes of the cliff. To balance the heavy mass derived from the fireplaces; cantilevered volumes, flying roofs and floor to ceiling glass are used to achieve a lightness of form as it works to bring the lake into the living spaces.

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

Article source: Paul McAneary Architects

The clients requested a large space for their young family’s life. Paul McAneary Architects responded with an open-plan design concept, to remove all of the internal walls of the existing building without any trace of columns nor beams and to create a seamless connection from the entrance right through to the garden. A faceted ceiling-scape was designed to force light deeper into the ground floor plan.
