VILLA CRISS-CROSS ENVELOPE in Ljubljana, Slovenia by OFIS ARCHITECTS

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

Article source: OFIS ARCHITECTS 

The Villa is located in the Mirje Suburbs within the city center of Ljubljana, Slovenia. The street of the villa runs perpendicular to the ancient Roman Wall and continues into a pedestrian passageway under the stone pyramid designed by Plecnik (as part his reconstruction project along the wall). The Villa’s new structure embeds an existing retaining wall along the street front. By incorporating the wall as part of the new construction, the new house keeps original position on this street in an axial alignment to the pyramid.

Villa New Water in Westland, The Netherlands by Waterstudio.NL

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

Article source: Waterstudio.NL

From the very first moment of seeing the location for this villa, Koen Olthuis, architect and founder of Waterstudio.NL, set out to design a subtle villa that would complement its surroundings and enhance the  experience of its surroundings. In order to maintain the rural character of the location, in the project the New Water, the assignment came with strict regulations which limited the volume allowed above the ground level. These limitations eventually proved to give rise to a rather sophisticated design filled with spatial solutions.

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.

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.

Forest Hill Villa in Buda Hills, Hungary by Architema Ltd

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Article source: Architema Ltd

The elitist school of Bauhaus marked by the name of Mies van de Rohe appeared in Hungary at the end of the 1930s.  The emerging intellectuals of the era were sensitive to the values represented by Mies. Unfortunately, World War II and the following political changes did not favor this particular architectural style characterized by industrial aesthetics and eventually it disappeared from Eastern Europe.

Villa Escargot in Chiba, Japan by Takeshi Hirobe Architects

Friday, February 13th, 2015

Article source: Takeshi Hirobe Architects

How to “wall in” a space for people? I become more conscious about this question when designing a building in an environment that faces nature, rather than one in a residential area. Therefore, since my first visit to the site, I had been thinking that the building itself should stand robustly and independently.
