This project is located on the first floor of Infinitus Tower by the shoreline of Taiping Lake in Shanghai. As the weathervane of street fashion, DOE represents noncomformist qualities, being both classic and trendy, vintage and modern. Based on the Street Culture branding of DOE, the design of the store introduces the concept of street and city. As the store opens up to the street, bringing in urban landscape, the boundary between inside and outside is dissolved.

Ballantrae Court in Florida by KZ Architecture

This Residence was developed as a seasonal home in a golf community in South Florida.  The program specified ample guest accommodations for the clients’ extended family and friends.

The project involved a large program that would yield a massive home on a limited and restricted site.  The design strategy involved deconstructing the volume into pavilions that could generate a dialogue between built form and landscape and create intimate connections between the golf course and the living spaces.

View from the rear. Generous overhangs and louvers pervade throughout the structure to protect it from the harsh Florida sun. Spacious and distinct exterior living spaces such as terraces, porches and balconies continuously connect the structure to the outside, seamlessly integrating indoor and outdoor spaces, Image Courtesy © Robin Hill

Espigas 41 in Santa Catarina, México by Dear Architects

 
February 2nd, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Dear Architects

The house responds to a three part composition, generated according to the function of the deduced programs and as a response to their location. The crown, in yellow, enclosed and up top, is the element with the strongest presence. It embraces the bedrooms and represents the private areas, symbolizing strength and protection. In dark blue, the pavilion attends to the social activities. Its characteristic form connects to the sierra: from the inside, it frames the mountains, on the outside, it relinquishes the view. The pavilion’s live-in experience is memorable, giving each event the distinction it deserves. The base adapts the terrain to each piece, connecting areas to each other, closing off from the street and opening up to the garden and the city views. The entrance hall unites areas horizontally, while the family room connects vertically with its double-height that coincides with the center of the upper floor.

Brickwall in Brussels, Belgium by YCL studio

Article source: YCL studio 

In 1976 architects Jean and Veronique Boland-Springal designed and built a row house for themselves in the sleeping quarters in Brussels. Even though owners changed several times and the building went through several maintenances, main spaces and architecture stayed the same. The dwelling is organized into 6 levels, which creates compelling spaces, engaging perspectives and connects street and inner-courtyard on different levels. Building framework is from monolithic concrete columns and slabs and is compressed in a 5m gap between masonry brick walls. Bay windows with an open concrete structure framework are duplicated in the interior spaces. Meanwhile, the captured representation was oppressing – everything was painted in various colors and enclosed with diverse materials, which were physically and morally worn out.

The Solar Circular Pool House by jantzen studio

 
February 1st, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: jantzen studio

The Solar Circular Pool House was designed around an architectural aesthetic that integrates various extreme needs and/or desires of the people who occupy the structure. In this case, the two occupants of the house will use it as a weekend retreat, in an undisclosed temperate climate location. Both of these people are passionate about swimming. As a result, a large circular swimming pool has been integrated into the design in the form of a ring that encircles the entire house. Stairs and a small footbridge lead visitors across the circular pool onto a narrow deck that also encircles the cylindrical shaped house. There is a circular seat on the deck that is mounted onto the vertical exterior wall of most of the house. A curved staircase also mounted onto the vertical wall of the house leads to another circular deck on top of the house. A series of solar cell panels are mounted above the circular deck where they shade the space below. These solar cells power the house, and the roof on which they are mounted is designed to collect rainwater, which is stored under the house. The solar electricity made from the solar cells is also stored under the house in batteries. The collected rainwater is used for the pool, and to supply the needs of the house. The open floor plan of the interior of the house is equipped with energy efficient appliances, lighting, natural ventilation, a waterless toilet, and highly efficient water saving sinks and a shower.
