Casa Del Pico in Spain by Ábaton Arquitectura (designed using Microstation)

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

Article source: Ábaton Arquitectura

Since the land was on a high slope it was necessary to build a two-story villa. The idea of two structures floating on rock was possible because of the granite on the land. The bottom of the swimming pool is irregular imitating the shape of the granite on which it stands. The access to the house through one of the sides discovers a huge glass window overlooking three outstanding olm oaks around which the house was designed. To one side there are the public areas such as living room, kitchen and to the other side there are the private areas – bedrooms, bathrooms- arranged in two floors.

Planted Environment in Chicago, Illinois by STUDIO IDE

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

Article source: STUDIO IDE

Designed by Vladimir Radutny and Paul Tebben of STUDIO IDE, this ground level space inscribes the functions of living, entertaining and yoga into a traditional three story suburban home.  The Clients, having lived and traveled in the eastern world, aspired to transplant the character of Southeast Asian living into their existing home.  Rather than forcing the marriage between these two dissimilar architectural languages, the choice to disconnect each from the other created a world within a world.

Folsom Street Residential Laboratory in San Francisco, California by Todd Verwers Architects

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

Article source: Todd Verwers Architects

This urban loft space for a single man occupies the entire top floor of a 1920’s concrete frame structure in San Francisco’s Soma neighborhood.  The space, essentially a “toolbox” for the owner’s urban lifestyle, is unique in its adaptation of commercial and institutional materials and components to residential functions.  Off the shelf laboratory cabinet modules form the kitchen, a customized computer floor forms the sleeping platform, and a precision aluminum framing system creates the enclosure and adaptable framework for an “electronics laboratory”.  In some cases, these modular components were customized to specific client requirements.

Sea Ranch Residence in California by Todd Verwers Architects

Saturday, December 17th, 2011

Article source: Todd Verwers Architects

This house, designed for a Danish consul and his wife,was built as a weekend getaway and a venue for informal entertaining.  Sited on a sloping lotwhich opens to spectacular downslope views over the Pacific Ocean, the house gently backs into an existing grove of redwood trees, thus providing intimacy and a “deep woods” feeling toward the rear of the house.  The design embodies a Nordic sensibility to light, material, and lifestyle, while respecting the architectural forms and rustic materiality characteristic of the famed Sea Ranch design tradition.

A Mobile School for Burmese Refugees in Thailand by in situ studio

Saturday, December 17th, 2011

Article source: in situ studio

One-hundred and forty-four frames, the structure of a new school, arrive on site a bit after nine in the morning on three flatbed trucks. The three-hour trek to Kwe Ka Bung has been challenging. Just one week ago these people learned the landowner of their former settlement site would be pushing them out to develop the land. Many families have left their homes behind, along with much of the infrastructure for producing food and dealing with waste. Thankfully, demounting the school that has now arrived required only one afternoon and twelve workers.
