HDM House in Lisbon, Portugal by Sara Antunes Mário Ferreira Arquitectos (designed using AutoCAD and Revit)

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Article source: Sara Antunes Mário Ferreira Arquitectos

This house is located in a privileged area of Lisbon, at the southern end of a row of houses. This neighbourhood, built in the 1950’s by the state as social housing, in a “nationalistic” style, has a homogenous character, with the repetition of a type with slight variations, and cohesive public space, which promotes a strong sense of community that, is so hard to find in the more fragmented contemporary city.

The Pine Lake Cottage emphasizes affordability with an eye for efficiency. Emerging from the tear down of the previous residence, this cottage was built entirely on the preexisting foundation.

Office Building E in Prague, Czech Republic by Aulík Fišer Architects

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Article source: Aulík Fišer Architects

The office building E is the very last piece of development completing the northern part of the BB Center complex along Vyskocilova (street) and a ramp to 5.května (street). So, towards the city centre the bldg. E closes the planned “protection shield” against the negative impact of city highway traffic on residential houses planned for the second phase of development. This part of the Prague-Michle district has now been revitalized, reintroducing the urban environment with multiple functions and restoring it the way it was before the highway – 5.května street – completely destroyed it.

Bala Park Island in Lake Muskoka , Canada by Altius Architecture (designed using ArchiCAD)

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Article source: Altius Architecture

As with all our cottage work the site had a major influence on the design. The main level of the building nestles up against a distinct granite ridge. The ridge provides a perfect landing for the second level which anchors the building back on to the Canadian shield. The landing for the upper level walks out to a path that follows the ridge to a future bunkie. The design is a simple roof line that tilts upwards revealing the ridge through clerestory windows. The floor levels follow the slope varying the interior ceiling heights. The exposed Douglas Fir roof joists provide a continuous rhythm across the entire ground floor ceiling.

Diagonal Passage in Greenport, New York by Studio a/b Architects

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

Article source: Studio a/b Architects

Awarded AIA Peconic  Jurors Award for Architecture 2009
Platinum rating in the LEED for Homes program 2011

Responding to a long skinny lot (50 ft wide x 166 ft deep) in a village, this project explores the openness between inside/outside spaces using a linear format.  A diagonal wall running from the southwest to the northeast divides the site into “dwelling” and “garden” zones.  The interior space uses the widest possible width at the western end.  The larger, backyard garden is on the eastern end.
