Villa Lokaator in Paldiski, Estonia by kavakava architects

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

Article source: kavakava architects

Situated nearby an ex-Soviet military town, which housed a nuclear submarine training base, Villa Locator deliberately advances the theme of its desolate surroundings. Starting point was an old army barrack made of calcium silicate bricks. The client’s brief was to reinterpret the surrounding military environment and keep the bulky 65-cm-thick existing walls as load bearing external walls. Renovated brick walls are visible in the interior of the house.

Villa Piedad in San Sebastián, Spain by Marta Badiola

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

Article source: Marta Badiola

Inhabiting the volume. Converting the plane into livable volume. Embracing the space. These have been the obsessive aims of the project. My chances of purchasing my own dwelling in the most expensive city of Spain came down to 40 square meters and my knowledge of architecture.

Villa B in Blankenheim, Germany by Schneider+Schumacher

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Article source: Schneider+Schumacher

In 2010, an architectural and landscape limited competition was launched by the municipality of Blankenheim, together with the Regionale 2010 Agentur. It resulted in schneider+schumacher winning first prize with their finely judged answer to the competition brief. This asked for suggestions as to how the former Roman manor – the Villa Rustica – might once again be made visible to the public. Taking up this challenge as their point of departure, the architects have now enhanced the Eifel region with a decidedly sculptural, walk-in installation.

Villa Al in Almere, The Netherlands by WHIM Architecture

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Article source: WHIM Architecture

Villa Al is a green villa in a green environment. This proposal emphasises the existing qualities and character of the location.
A meandering river through a green environment is translated into a meandering route through a green pavilion.

In a natural context also the electricity and heating are found in natural resources. A heat pump installation allows for heating from the soil. Electricity is captured by solar panels and from the water motion in the river.

Villa Overlooking The Sea in Hayama, Japan by Edward Suzuki Associates

Saturday, March 30th, 2013

Article source: Edward Suzuki Associates

This is a vacation home expected to become a permanent house in the future. Located about an hour’s car ride away from downtown Tokyo, it is locatedin the sea resort of Hayama in the Shonan region, adjacent to the more well known, old city of Kamakura.Sited overlooking the sea on the south, the design intent was to capture as much of the scenic panorama and to bring it into the house. Behind the house on the north is a hill clad with wild bamboos. Sandwiched in between the richness of the sea and that of the hill, the design was to open the house as much as was possible to the natural outdoors and to become a part of it.

Villa F in Greece by Hornung And Jacobi Architecture

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

Article source: Hornung And Jacobi Architecture

The site of the holiday home in Rhodes/Greece yet possess characteristics and outstanding qualities, which we only attempted to frame with our design.The site is located three meters above a coastal road, which is bordered by a natural stonewall that has been equally continued for our proposal. On the one hand the continuation of the found wall generates a high level of privacy, while on the other hand it relates to the given situation in this area, which we were tempted to preserve as much as possible.The holiday home was designed for a couple.
