Friday, January 11th, 2013

Article source: AST 77 Architecten

The narrow sloping and afforested site, south faced towards the Beukenlaan, is not that typical Flanders plot. In the past the neighbourhood seems to have been a residential recreation zone, where Belgians used to build their individual summer houses. When asked to build a new spacious residence on this particular site, AST77 was confronted with a bungalow and extension.

Sloping House in Paris, France by Atelier 37.2

Monday, December 17th, 2012

Article source: Atelier 37.2

Sloping House is a makeshift shelter that clings to the side of an extinct volcano in the Puy de Serveix, in France’s Massif Central. Built from recycled timber by the artists themselves, this sculptural one-person refuge, seems to erupt from the grassy slope, as if the structure’s wooden planks are being flung out of the earth only to reform into the neat lines of an archetypal hut.

The Green Cage by Jonathan Gibb – Architect

Sunday, November 18th, 2012

Article source: Jonathan Gibb – Architect

The design intent was to look at an residential and pottery / art studio insertion to a bare inner city lot, surrounded by a motley crew of existing industrial buildings. The concept evolved into designing an oasis, abundant with nature within such a concrete and brick clad environ for the interface of Architecture to the intimacy of a garden. The concept of the Green Cage is a contained ideal of the greening of one’s own backyard.
