The modern, sustainable house on Stillhouse Bluff in Chapel Hill sits 220 feet above the approach road on 10 wooded acres that include one of the highest points in Orange County. The view in winter, even on an overcast day, is all the way to nearby downtown Durham. The house was designed to maximize the views from this lofty perch.

Tea Houses in Silicon Valley, California by Swatt | Miers Architects

Article source: Swatt | Miers Architects

The idea for the tea houses originated years ago, when the owner and his young daughter explored the remote hills surrounding their Silicon Valley home, discovering an idyllic setting below a ridge, under a grove of large California Live Oak trees. At first, the family thought the setting would be perfect for a tree house. Years later, after the 6000 square foot main house was extensively remodeled, the vision was realized as three individual tea houses, places where one could simply retreat into nature.

M6B2 Tower of Biodiversity in Paris, France by Maison Edouard François

The relationship between building height and sustainability is a subject that currently occupies the minds of many city planners. This is because the city cannot expand infinitely into the landscape. In France, however, \”village\” urbanism seems to be adamantly resisting the vertical city, without truly considering its potential. One of the objectives of our project is to quell these hesitations.

Protestant harmony

In 2012, the Hungarian Lutheran Church invited a number of selected architecture firms to take part in the competition for the modernisation and extension of the Sarepta Evangelical Institution for the disabled, along with designing its new residential building. The professional jury has chosen the proposal of the winner of the Ybl Award, András Krizsán (DLA). After the permission of plans – as the result of a lucky turn of events – the Church was able to purchase an extra plot for the new building on Máriaremetei Road, not far from the original location of the Institution. This has created the possibility of building two buildings with the division of latter site.

Résidence Belcourt in Québec, Canada by Atelier Pierre Thibault

Article source: Atelier Pierre Thibault

The Residence Belcourt is a typical Canadian house built in 1974. Clients underwent major renovations in order to optimize the functionality of the residence while maximizing the entry of natural light. Only the overall volume, the exterior stone walls and the pool were kept from the original house. The project now shows a concept. The side walls integrate services and storage in order to free the heart of the ground floor. New living spaces are organized around a sculptural plywood staircase. The new organization of spaces promotes family life within large communicating areas. The addition of a pergola in cedar slats and a generous terrace at the rear allows to offer outdoor living spaces that extend to the garden and to facilitate access to the inner courtyard.
