This construction is located in Tufi d’Agna, a small settlement in the mountain town of Corniglio, inside of the Tuscan-Emilian Appenine recently recognized by the UNESCO as a MAB (Man and the Biosphere Programme) reserve.

The small building, a farm building once used to shelter the shepherds and animals, was recovered as a refuge where the residential use, considering the remote location and the difficulties to achieve it, is sporadic and linked to the summer period.

House Folded in Osaka, Japan by Alphaville Architects

 
August 16th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Alphaville Architects

This is a 100m2 residence for a couple and their cats located in Osaka, Japan. The typical method for designing a house would assign rectangular rooms with specific functions and lay out them. Such a design produces a series of rooms of similar size and causes monotonous spatial experiences. Our approach was to avoid the conventional design practice and to create a structurally rational but spatially heterogeneous house.

Article source: studio RIPOLLTIZON 

The elements with which to develop the project are not far away. They are features that tell us about the climate, the context and the way we live. Simply walking around the place and looking at… the courtyards, the filters, the light, the plots configuration, the small scale of the buildings… the singularity of each of the houses and the amazing configurations that emerge when they are grouped… not really knowing where one house ends and the next one begins.
