Situated on the outskirts of the village of Reichenau, it is almost impossible to tell the original appearance of this detached home, which was built in the 1970s. The extension and renovation of the building in the context of an economical and ecological renewal took top priority in the planning considerations.

Article source: TWS & Partners

Twisting out something from the usual line is taken in order to create different perception or to enrich some more quality. This happens to a house that we name it as The Distort House. It is located in the south of Jakarta which is still dominated by lush, tropical village forest in the neighborhood. In the front of the site itself lays a public park with some old big tropical trees.

zeep-soori of professor kim’s house in Seoul, Korea by Kim Jae-kwan

Repair of the Axis
The neighborhood has topographical characteristics of a basin. Thus, directions of the house were open to centrifugal or right angles. When I climbed the roof, a road came to view. The road was coiled as if it was an unknown entity drawn in the sky over the numerous houses lined on the edge of the road connecting Ansan and Seongsan. I decided the route is a subjective meridian for closing or opening houses and substituting directions dividing windows, the entrance, stairway and floor to it. The layout of lighting, direction of wood material on the floor, flow of the fence surrounding the house and main entrance were created in accordance with the axis.

Villa van Lipzig in Venlo, Netherlands by Loxodrome architects & planners bv

The property of the Villa van Lipzig in Venlo/Netherlands is a small, narrow stripe on the border of the new development area ´Stalberg´. It is not the usual plot of a villa-  and therefore it became very fast, very clear that an extraordinary solution for the stacking of all desired rooms was necessary. On a small footprint a lot of spaces had to be combined. The introduction of the split-level floors solves this problem. With an extra horizontal shift of each floor, the visual connection between the split-levels becomes visible –  in- and outside of the Villa.

Built in a sloped site (30 degrees) in the city of Nova Lima, Brazil, the house uses dramatic cantilevers to emphasize the extremity of its position. We have chosen this concept not only for aesthetic reasons, but above all to reduce the interference of the building mass in the topography, keeping the site as natural as possible.

Village House Proposal in Bratislava, Slovakia by CHYBIK+KRISTOF Associated Architects

 
October 9th, 2011 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: CHYBIK+KRISTOF Associated Architects

CHYBIK+KRISTOF ASSOCIATED ARCHITECTS won an international architectural and urbanistic competition on 33 apartment buildings close to Bratislava. The project aims to create quality housing with direct contact with water surface. It also sets a considerable part of the house into the riparian forest in the river-bed of the Danube. “We have designed for each object a group of four materials which create together a common atrium as well as a scenic jetty near the water. The resulting combination of two- or three-floored buildings makes ideal conditions for social life inside each villa house whilst at the same time it provides enough privacy in each apartment. We do not design an ensemble of anonymous apartments but a PLACE with a bountiful view on water surface and with sojourning areas in the semi-private space.”
