As a part in a chain of Agritecture development projects, Terraces home adopts the combination of Architecture and Agriculture (Agriculture + Architecture = Agritecture) as a basis for sustainable development.

The idea is to combine the two distinctive elements of Vietnam’s rural areas: The house (accommodation space) and terraced rice field (cultivation space) to create a Home with blurred boundaries in and out; above and below; common and private.

This bold extension heavily inspired by our modernist leanings sits poetically atop its 33,000sqm bushland setting. The house explores ideas of transparency and solidity through the use of a heavy stone base juxtaposed against its heavily glazed, cantilevered pavilion above.

House in Rubielos de Mora, Spain by Ramón Esteve Estudio

 
November 26th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Ramón Esteve Estudio

The essence of this project is a revision of a stately house, the traditional rural house that forms the old quarter of Rubielos de Mora and so the surroundings of our building. The traditional architecture is reviewed with a modern view so the house is integrated in its historical surroundings but it is also related to our present time. The external façade adheres to the style, materials, colours and proportion between solid and void of the historic buildings around.

House With a View in Mogilany, Poland by doomo

 
November 26th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: doomo 

Timber elevation and roof (boards and shingle) are perfectly common to a local Polish nearmountain building tradition, which is exacly where the house is built. These natural materials will change during the time, they’ll “live” together with the seasons and wheather. Because of it with every passing month and year the building will blend more and more into the landscape.

Zhuhai Public Cultural Center in China by PLASMA Studio

Article source: PLASMA Studio

The project is based on the use of a privileged positioning of the building within a corner site, so as to celebrate the various views of the diverse landscapes around it. It has been created a main ribbon, driven by a circulation shaped by the views. It starts in the northeast corner of the site at the last floor all the way till the south east to create a panoramic platform for the urban frontage of the site; then it starts to descend towards the southwest as it approaches the water frontage and its beautiful views. Finally it turns around at the northwest corner and it touches the ground level to embrace the landscape and the inner plaza.

Villa Muurame is a wooden 3-story single-family home by Lake Jyväsjärvi in Jyväskylä, Finland.  The spatial elements of the house (approx. 3m wide, 7.8 longa and 3.1 high) were pre-fabricated during the winter in the Muurametalot housing factory in Karunki, Finnish Lapland and the elements were erected in Jyväskylä after the snow had melted. The timber used is extremely slow grown and high quality Lappish spruce and pine.

Reclined within a well-heeled residential enclave, KAP-House reposes behind wild grassland that grows from the remains of the old Malayan Railway. Placed on a plot that was once the sprawling garden of a classic colonial black and white bungalow, the home was imagined as a paradigm of modern tropical living.

Gallatin River Bank House in Big Sky, Montana by Prentiss + Balance + Wickline Architects

 
November 26th, 2016 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Prentiss + Balance + Wickline Architects

The River Bank House sits along the Gallatin River just outside Big Sky, Montana. The clients love to entertain, so the house was set up to create an open and casual atmosphere with a strong connection to the outdoors. The house is oriented toward the best view of the river while maintaining good solar orientation for taking advantage of solar heat gain in the winter and keeping out the hot summer sun. The large roof over the living room serves to shade large areas of glass in the summer, while geothermal heat pumps and high levels of insulation help keep it warm and energy efficient in the winter. In such an extreme climate the house was specifically designed to withstand both extremes of the temperature spectrum.
