Villa SR in Rijssen, The Netherlands by reitsema & partners architecten bna

Saturday, March 14th, 2015

Article source: reitsema & partners architecten bna

An environmentally friendly example house, connected to its surrounding landscape. The outcome of a close triangular collaboration between the clients, the architects + the construction engineer and the various manufacturers.

When older houses are preserved, it is often because of their recyclability. They have high ceilings, daylight, large rooms and wide doors. But there is one more important reason why we don’t demolish them. We love them, because their architecture is good and because they are made of beautiful materials. Preserve your house, or make a new one with a high long term value, and you make your house more environmentally friendly. By not only looking at the cost of the total investments, but being aware of the monthly costs, sustainable solutions become feasible.

Article source: Paradox Studio

“Intertwine” is the key to design concept of Heirloom Taipei. The brand “Heirloom” is a new brand established by two young designers with family manufacturing background and east/west crossover cultural experience. The brand logo – “Interweaving H” explicitly demonstrates the multi-level mixture of Heirloom’s brand spirit. Therefore, the theme “Intertwine” was set to abstract Heirloom’s brand statement into three-dimensional store shopping experience.

ZENDESK SAN FRANCISCO HEADQUARTERS in San Francisco, California by Design Blitz

Friday, March 13th, 2015

Article source: Design Blitz

Zendesk, a customer service software provider, was one of the first tech companies to move to San Francisco’s Mid-Market neighborhood to take advantage of the city’s tax incentive program, and the first to sign a community benefits agreement. After experiencing large-scale growth, it was only natural for the company to seek an additional space in the neighborhood they called home. Zendesk’s new office marks its second building on Market Street, creating an urban campus that assists in the revival of the long-neglected Mid-Market neighborhood. The new building not only serves as a headquarters for the growing Zendesk team, but also as opens its doors as a communal hub for local businesses and residents.

OCEAN DECK HOUSE by Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects

Wednesday, March 11th, 2015

Article source: Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects

This ocean front residence captures the sense of indoor-outdoor living by introducing large cantilevered decks and roof decks. Designed for an active family who loves to cook and entertain, the ability to do so on each level is a driving element. As a measure to preserve the integrity of the dune, the house is pulled back from it to create three distinct experiences on each level. The ground level is nestled behind the dune and provides for a mixed wood and concrete paved patio with a pool, outdoor fireplace and covered ping-pong area. Areas on this level intended for storage and lower level entry are enclosed by a combination of glass and concrete walls. The main floor is accessed from an exterior cantilevered stair that leads to the central light filled atrium. This main level houses all the bedrooms and a centrally located family room. This house is designed as an upside down house, giving the most spectacular views to the living, dining and kitchen on the top floor. This floor takes advantage not only of the southern exposure and views, but provides for adequate solar control. The main deck allows for an extensive herb and vegetable garden, outdoor cooking, entertaining, and lounging.

House Passage of LAndscape in Toyota, Japan by Masaki Ihara/ ihrmk

Tuesday, March 10th, 2015

Article source: Masaki Ihara/ ihrmk

This is a house for the family of three.
Tanada, terraced paddy field, widely appears to its south and the west. My first visiting of this site was in early summer, three years ago. Bright green and reflection of water of the rice field just after the rice-planting, natural sounds of breeze rusting the leaves of lemon trees and Magnolia figo slightly and sound of running water from the waterway had created comfortable scenery there. It was calm place and there was nothing to cutting off my view from the site.

Contemporary Villa in Tuscany, Italy by Storm Studio Architecture

Tuesday, March 10th, 2015

Article source: Storm Studio Architecture

A villa sited in the Tuscany countryside which is respondent to the requests of a young couple.
The shape of the project solves the great height difference from the street level to the garden, using a series of embankments at various levels which mixed stone and grass. The metallic roof (an oxidized copper roof) has its own life and its purpose is to lighten the structure of the ground floor.
