WATER VILLA in Amsterdam, Netherlands by +31ARCHITECTS

Sunday, November 1st, 2015

Article source: +31ARCHITECTS

Q: When designing a houseboat or structure sitting alongside a body of water, what are the considerations or alterations you have to make as opposed to a “regular” building? What is the most difficult part to resolve in a floating house?

A: There are a few aspects for floating houses that are of the outmost importance:

Weight:

You always have to make calculations for the weight of the boat because it has to float.

the Volume of the hull that is below the water level has to be compensated by the weight of the floating building. If you have a displacement of 1m³ of water you will need to compensate this with a weight of about 1000 kg. Before execution we make calculations off the total weight, including the extra weight that people will need for furniture, books and all other house stuff that they will put in the floating house.

Villa S in Bergen, Norway by Saunders Architecture

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

Article source:  Saunders Architecture

Describing his latest project, a house for his own family in a leafy suburb of Bergen, Todd Saunders says, ‘It’s like three sticks, stacked on top of each other.’ At a stretch, the analogy holds – the house is composed of three woodclad elements, one vertical, two horizontal – but it’s far more accurate to describe it as a strictly functional composition.

Article source: WE Architecture + Spacefab

The inspiration for the youth housing project comes from the classic villas in the old Frederiksberg. Thirteen detached two-storey houses are placed on the site, leaving little gardens in the gaps between.
