Mangulica house in Yucatan, Mexico by Alberto Zavala Arquitectos

 
October 2nd, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Alberto Zavala Arquitectos 

This house is located on the tropical coast of Yucatan, Mexico, its keynote idea being to confuse the borders existing between the “inside” and the “outside”. This duality gives rise to surprises and a constant awareness of situations occurring outside. Movement (motion) becomes particularly important, as does the change from day to night and the changing of seasons.

In sight of a comfortable house for the whole family, the owners decided to renovate an old house from the early 50s.
The architects from Lab Arquitetos developed the project in order to integrate the outdoor area to the inside of the house, making it possible the usage of pergolas, balconies and wide windows.

Searching for an aesthetical look that refers to the northern Argentina fields and grasslands, rustic materials such as wood were used, contrasting with the contemporary furniture and integrated rooms.

Multidisciplinary design studio +tongtong recently completed a renovation and addition to a traditional Victorian house in Toronto. The house was transformed into an open and bright modern home through a series of strategic moves and incisions.

The specifications were to build a modern family home that expands the area of livable space while remaining true to the vernacular of the neighborhood. This challenge was met with an emphasis on natural materials and light. Inspired by rural living and the original build date of the home, industrial materials accentuate re-imagined architectural qualities in an unmistakable contemporary space.

Complex surrounding context + Mountain in the distance

The given site is located in front of the bus stop on the main street of the Mondol beach, in Geojae island. There is a stunning horizon of Mondol beach along the Geojae seashore, 100 meters ahead of the site. However, this stunning view can only be captured from the higher level above the ground, from the limited view frame created by the gaps in between the existing buildings. The site is basically surrounded by the randomly constructed accommodations. Yet, the picturesque view of Moja Mountain over those buildings is considered as our targeting landscape.

Haus Meister in Rümlang, Switzerland by HDPF – Hamburger Du Pfammatter Ferrandiz

 
September 30th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: HDPF – Hamburger Du Pfammatter Ferrandiz

This single-family house is located on a former cooperative workers’ estate and replaces a building designed in 1948 in the spirit of the garden city. Its close proximity to the airport meant that the municipal building regulations largely ceased to have effect. The resulting restriction to a slightly larger replacement building and the distance guidelines created a lengthwise rectangular plan and volume.
