Article source: Josep Ferrando Architecture 

The architect Josep Ferrando resolves the complex urban conditions of the context and the site in which the house is located – less than 5 meters wide and with a particular topography that constrains the parcel between two streets situated at different heights – starting the conception of the project from the shaping of the volume.

Properly Breathing House in Hanoi, Vietnam by H&P Architects

A “suffocating” situation

Just 15 kilometers far from the center of Hanoi, the suburban district Dong Anh has witnessed pervasive urbanization – one of the major causes for a trend towards a maximum use of volume and quantity of construction areas. Lesser importance has been attached to the quality of used space and surrounding scenery. This has resulted in a large number of “suffocating” buildings as often found in newly planned, stuffy urban areas characterized with land plot subdivision for building row houses in Vietnam.

The Corner House in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

 
November 29th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects 

The Corner House is a contemporary design responding to a character vernacular in a quiet suburban street in inner-city Brisbane. The house is designed around three courtyards, offering a plan that transparently connects the indoor and outdoor living spaces. A simple but poetic palette of light, natural materials is the backdrop to a rich tapestry of shadows created by the screened elements that offer a reinterpretation of the traditional verandah.

House Benz in Stuttgart, Germany by Ippolito Fleitz Group

 
November 26th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Ippolito Fleitz Group 

Markus Benz, company director of prestigious furniture brand Walter Knoll, and his wife Susanne wished to find a Stuttgart base that would enable them to offer their business partners an alternative meeting place to the company headquarters 40 km away in Herrenberg on the edge of the Black Forest – and to live there too. The family found a property in the Kräherwald, a popular location above the city, and moved into what is known as a ‘coffee-grinder house’, typical of the 1920s. The house used to function as a doctor’s practice, so the layout was restored in line with its original purpose and with respect for the building’s structure and history. On one hand our task was to create a home environment that suited the family’s discerning aesthetic demands and offered a framework for their art collection. On the other hand, products from Walter Knoll were to be staged in an authentic and atmospheric context, far removed from trade fair and showroom presentations.

A Buddhist retreat in the Suffolk countryside has reopened, designed by Walters & Cohen Architects. Potash Farm is home to Vajrasana Buddhist Retreat Centre; capacity has been increased from 34 to 60, accessibility improved and the centre now includes a glittering new shrine room. While the retreat is run by the London Buddhist Centre, it is also used for carers on respite and those dealing with issues such as stress, addiction and anxiety. It is the first time in the UK  a new building has been designed specifically around the Buddhist practice as opposed to reusing existing buildings.
