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

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.

The design of villa Lóla was an especially enjoyable dialogueprocess between client and architect. Various ideas of materials, concepts and techniques where discussed in the process. Inspirations range from Swiss mountains cabins, a sea ranch in Sonoma County in California, and Japanese solutions in spatial efficiency.  Furthermore, the framing of views was an important topic of discussion. The natural surroundings of the site and the fjord of Eyjarfjördurwere key factors to address.

Villa Řitka in Czech Republic by Studio pha

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

Article source: Studio pha

The basic idea is a kind of enclosure of the building in and on itself, and the use of the sloping ground to divide the building into a two-storey main residential part on the upper part of the land and a lower building containing the garages and entrance hall further down the slope. The result is essentially a two-storey house with a flat roof, positioned atop the concrete “retaining wall” of the lower structure. The house’s plan is of “U”-shape, or equally it could be described as a rectangle with an interior atrium open on one side to the surrounding landscape. Inside the atrium is a small pool, which ensures for this space pleasant cooling, reinforced by the system of louvered blinds against the sun.

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

Article source: MARC Architects


Villa S2 on IJburg island is a three-story high split-level villa with spacious design, high ceilings and great openness to the waterfront. The form of the villa had to be a very compact one. This is controlled by the relatively small plot so close to the water on one hand and client needs on the other.
