This single-family house, located on Oak Avenue in Quebec-city, brings a new breath in the neighborhood of Sillery in Quebec city. The challenge was to design a modern and minimalist home that blends into the residential context while maximizing intimity and proximity. The architect’s response was a L-shaped house within it’s suroundings. Located in a very green environnement, the architects have choosen natural materials like stained natural wood, dark bricks and steel that are in echo with the neighborhood materials and with the nature present in the courtyard.

Can Llimona – Anteproyecto in Barcelona, Spain by MESURA

 
January 22nd, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: MESURA 

A construction with an architectural character and segregated in several parts with a large common garden, was what Lluís Clotet and José Antonio Martínez La Peña were looking for in the late eighties to live. The result of the search was to find a majestic “mansion” in Alella, which consists of an old Cottage from 1778 reformed and enlarged in a large Modernist house in 1909. After the discovery, the house was segregated by floors, causing each Tenant would have a floor.

Caledonian Somosaguas in Madrid, Spain by Studio MK27

 
January 22nd, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Studio MK27 

Density or looseness?  Intensity or laid-backness?  Public or private? Urban or suburban?  The problem in creating new housing on the edge of the city is to somehow synthesise all of these seeming opposites – not to choose between them but to lift a little from them all to create a new cocktail of the familiar and the foreign, the everyday and the exotic.

CO Architects’ innovative expansion and modernization of the 100-year-old Natural History Museum (NHM) of Los Angeles County fully engages museum-goers and puts an interactive and contextually responsive public face on the museum. Through a highly visible redesign of the museum’s North Campus, featuring a new glass pavilion, entry bridge, outdoor amphitheater, and newly developed landscape, the museum has become an inviting indoor-outdoor experience for visitors and passersby. The iconic Beaux-Arts style 1913 Building was retrofitted and renovated—along with the famed Dinosaur Hall—via an investigative process referencing original drawings to preserve the building’s infrastructure. With a completely re-imagined campus, the museum now offers its patrons an active and dynamic center for public engagement and scientific exploration for the next century.

Zig Zag in Los Angeles, California by Dan Brunn Architecture

 
January 21st, 2018 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Dan Brunn Architecture

Israeli-born architect Dan Brunn, AIA, of Los Angeles, designed a modern waterfront home with deep terraces on each floor to maximize outdoor spaces and ocean views. The three-story house occupies a narrow oceanfront lot on Venice Beach between a house previously completed by Brunn (for a different owner) and a two-story apartment building. This tight infill site led the architect to maximize openness and daylight inside the house so the rooms feel spacious and unencumbered. Numerous skylights, floor-to-ceiling glass, and generous windows illuminate the house from the top and sides. The zig-zag shape of the beachfront balconies, gray stucco panels, and rhythmic window patterns create dynamic façades. The visual interplay of projecting and recessed planes facing the beach suggests the ebb and flow of the ocean tides as seen from the house—and artfully comply with local set-back and height regulations.
