Silverhurst in Cape Town, South Africa by SAOTA

 
December 1st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: SAOTA 

This home is a contemporary reboot of the more classical architectural styles, surrounding it in one of Cape Town’s exclusive gated estates in the winelands suburb of Constantia. Set in a tailored parkland garden, the facade is Georgian inspired but the modern aspect of the look is driven by a dynamic of recessed and projecting panels and cubes that create courtyards and terraces that articulate and add interest to what is a highly organised shell. Inside, it’s no less organised but it becomes a story of sculpted space and secret luxury. VIVID Architects prepared the initial concept. SAOTA and ARRCC were then appointed to refine & develop the design and oversee the project to completion.

Wooden house in Fischamend, Austria by ARCHITEKTI mikulaj &mikulajová

Article source: ARCHITEKTI mikulaj &mikulajová 

The house is floating over a slightly steep land, with a beautiful view to the forest at the end of a small village in Lower Austria. The inner space of the house is organised around an atrium, that creates the core of the structure. This smart way of space arrangement allows the sun and the daylight to enter the spaces the whole day long and also offers interesting views to the garden and the inner courtyard from the rooms.

Article source: Werner Sobek Group

The fully detached, 750 m² single-family home is located not far from the town of Yssingeaux in the Massif Central region of France. The ground floor of the house nestles against the slope. Although it has very few openings to the outside world, the interior rooms on this level are filled with natural light via the patio – a generously dimensioned glass-enclosed inner courtyard. The swimming pool, various guest rooms, the study and the owner‘s archive are situated on the ground floor, while the living quarters, dining area and bedrooms are all accommodated on the transparent top floor of the house. From the design of the patio to the diverse coalescing views and accessibility options, Y1 bonds with the landscape in every way.

“Grand Lognes” training site in France by Architecture Patrick Mauger

 
December 1st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Architecture Patrick Mauger

The restructuring and extension to the Lognes site for the Ministry of the Interior aims to make it the main Grand Paris training center.

A “blue” gallery has been created that acts as the project’s backbone and provides the distribution needed for the restructured buildings and extensions. It permits a separation between visitor, trainee and personnel movements and ensures the readability of the centre, with administrative premises to the south and training premises to the north.

ETIE in Flanders, Belgium by Edouard Brunet and François Martens

 
December 1st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Edouard Brunet and François Martens

Attracted by the large garden and the tranquil environment of this house located a few kilometres away from Brussels, the new owners wished to carry out works to make it brighter and to open it up on the outside.

As they were ambivalent about the aesthetics of the existing house, part of the project was also to redesign the architectural expression, outside as well as inside, while keeping the original spirit. One of the childhood friends of the new owner put him in contact with architect François Martens who asked his colleague Edouard Brunet to team up with him.

Like being in a life-size anagram. Many products with many different uses and little available space lead to a solution involving an abstract installation echoing different domestic and commercial spaces. Big lighting letters framed by a filtering black fabric mark the division between the spaces.

Casa 4.16.3 in Erechim, Brazil by Luciano Lerner Basso, architect

 
November 30th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Luciano Lerner Basso, architect

House 4.16.3 is located in the city of Erechim, in the countryside of Rio Grande do Sul, brazilian state, around 400 km from the state capital, Porto Alegre. The region has a subtropical climate, with warm, humid summers and chilly, rainy winters, which poses yet another challenge to the architect, in terms of habitability. Built on a terrain with a slope of twenty meters and several native plant species, the project sought to minimally alter the topography, proposing a building that lies on one of its highest parts and, from there on, develops sometimes accommodating itself on the natural profile and sometimes hovering over it.
