An Office for Three Companies in New York by Only If

 
November 10th, 2016 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Only If 

How to use color and material to unify an increasing amount of junk in the contemporary office landscape? An office interior for three companies is structured by a neutral background of white walls, white exposed ceilings, and a poured black floor. Everything connected to the floor is black. Everything connected to the ceiling is white. The three companies, while different and to a certain degree independent, are unified through this common material framework.

House H in Wrocław, Poland by STOPROCENT Architekci s.c

 
November 10th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: STOPROCENT Architekci s.c

H House is nestled on the bank of the Bystrzyca river, in the suburbs of Wrocław. Before World War II this area was known as Schmiedefeld. A corner plot is lined by the street from the north and the east, while in the south it opens to a garden with many trees and a park Currently there is a small cottage from the 1970s, which the client decided to replace with a completely new one. Interestingly, there was another house designed for this location – a spacious three-storey villa with a large underground garage. However, the client decided the house was too big and too expensive and commissioned a new design. It was our task to draft a smaller, more modest building, better suited to the client’s needs. We decided to drop the underground part, a double garage and all redundant spaces.

Monolith House in Victoria, Australia by Rara Architecture

 
November 10th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Rara Architecture

Our mission was to reinstate the old home’s glory through highlighting it’s simplistic characteristics and its overall form. We stripped it right back to a neutral state. The height of the rear addition had the potential to dwarf the original heritage home, so, sympathetically, we mimicked the roof angle, but didn’t hide it. Nothing about the addition is ‘trying to hide’ anything. The old building transitions smoothly to the new, visually and emotionally, both internally and externally – the old floorboards transition to a new polished concrete slab, the old weatherboards transition to a perforated brick wall (outlining the central Zen garden) and then again to a solid brick wall. The addition, which can be enjoyed from the rear lanes and from within the property stands proud, like the existing Edwardian; it stands high, and strong without any exaggeration or excess, it is brutal, minimal and statuesque: a monolith.

Single family house in Vilnius, Lithuania by Architekturos linija

 
November 9th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Architekturos linija

The main architectural idea of the residential house is to build an expressive, memorable building yet not overshadowing the fragile context, but directly to the matching to it. The residential house is implemented instead of the natural environment of a garden house built during the Soviet period, and spot-homestead type development near the junction to the block street. One floor, specifically elongated volume was deliberately opposed the vertical lines of the nearby tall pine trees. The unusual shape of the house was due to a very complex shape of the plot. Looking from the approach, only the rear façade with expressive silhouette, reiterating the scale of adjacent buildings, is perceived, while the actual size of the building is understood only entering the area through the gate.

The Bartlett Residence was designed as a luxury vacation home in the middle of a dry tropical forest area.  The property has a long and narrow building envelope area (limited by the development), that works parallel to the slope of the land, which is a fairly constant natural slope of around 30 to 35 degrees, forming into a natural ravine in the middle of the buildable space.
