Yutaka Kindergarten in Saitama, Japan by SUGAWARADAISUKE

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

Article source: SUGAWARADAISUKE 

Yutaka Kindergarten is built on a steady philosophy of play-based education, encouraging children to develop their thinking actively. Space that offer diversity of experiences by stimulating children to explore and develop their thinking was required to practice this education policy. In order to respond to its needs, we traced the word “kindergarten” to its origin – “children’s garden” – and converted the site into gardens for diverse children’s activities. Three approaches were adopted to realize the ‘gardens of learning through play’.

Villa S in Bergen, Norway by Saunders Architecture

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

Article source:  Saunders Architecture

Describing his latest project, a house for his own family in a leafy suburb of Bergen, Todd Saunders says, ‘It’s like three sticks, stacked on top of each other.’ At a stretch, the analogy holds – the house is composed of three woodclad elements, one vertical, two horizontal – but it’s far more accurate to describe it as a strictly functional composition.

Ranch Operations in Hill Country, Texas by Miró Rivera Architects

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

Article source: Miró Rivera Architects 

The Ranch Operations buildings presented an opportunity to explore the juxtaposition of simple utilitarian structures against the Hill Country landscape. Designed with a common 16’ module, the structural layout for the three buildings is identical, leaving manipulation of the skin system as the primary vehicle for meeting the programmatic needs for the project. These needs include office space and a shop, maintenance vehicle storage as well as general storage.

Woodland Residences in Austin, TX by Derrington Building Studio

Saturday, October 24th, 2015

Article source: Derrington Building Studio

WDLD_Project Description

Woodland is a small residential community nestled among a grove of large trees in a neighborhood that is just minutes outside of downtown Austin, Texas.  The development started with a simple program of four houses, but quickly became complex through the site’s general conditions and restrictions. Unusual property lines, a steep bluff, and an abundance of old-growth trees squeezed the buildable area for the project. This, in turn, presented privacy and view concerns given the close proximity of each house to the surrounding trees, as well as one other. Along with these issues, permitting violations from a previous owner had to be overcome.

In working with a limited budget and economical materials, we placed extra attention on massing and fenestration. This particular house is 850 square feet of living space and includes two bedrooms and one and half baths. Simplicity of form with dynamic elements and limited use of color creates an impactful form without being overly dramatic. , Image Courtesy © Craig Washburn
