De La Canardière Residence in Val-Morin, Canada by Atelier BOOM-TOWN

 
May 24th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: v2com

This residence was designed to enable a sister and brother to meet as a family on special occasions and to unwind in contact with nature. This project sprouted along the shores of a lake up in the Laurentians in a wooded area with a significantly consistent slope. This elevation, which offers a bird’s eye view of the lake, is the backbone for the development of this architectural concept—grasping hold of the land through the blending of two areas intersecting one another. The parcelling out of its shapes made its integration with the landscape possible. Its establishment forms part of a circuit throughout a site where paths extend internally, creating views, such as observation posts towards the surrounding landscape.

The building site is located halfway between the traditional village centre and the “used to be” traditional vineyard area of Balatongyörök, Hungary. Currently this hillside is almost empty and the property is involuntarilly becoming a focal point of the surroundings.

“We had a chance to create a house that could send a message to the future investors of the area. Whisper something about simplicity, calmness and local values.” – Attila Béres says.

It takes a lot of effort be a good neighbour and it’s often a thankless task. Austin Maynard Architects are extremely proud to have successfully walked the tightrope with Greenacres, to deliver the maximum outcome for our clients without negatively impacting their neighbours.

Sunny Apartment is located in Taichung, one of the typical units of Taiwanese housing.

In original plan, light and ventilation of public space were blocked by rooms, only the south has an opening. It was far from the ideal home we expected.

Residence RR in Kersko, Czech Republic by monom

Article source: monom

Kersko. A well-known place, a “forest town” with a population of about 200, yet mysterious and ever-surprising. The plot is square, with sides of 100m. Two thirds of the original pine trees are still standing, and young oaks, birch trees and hornbeams have been added. A natural pond has become the focal point of the place and attracts forest creatures, both original and new. The house, a Finnish Honka log house, stands confidently but humbly amongst the trees by the water’s surface. It is hardly noticeable from the street. Its occupants imbibe the forest sounds and scents beneath the pine tree crowns.

Peter’s House in Copenhagen, Denmark by Studio David Thulstrup

Article source: Studio David Thulstrup 

The renowned photographer Peter Krasilnikoff commissioned architecture practice Studio David Thulstrup for his private residence and studio in the Islands Brygge harbour-side district of Copenhagen.

The guiding inspiration for the project evolved from worn-out warehouses and factories with their blackened steel and old bricks; a concept direction which was sparked by the desire to retain the three raw-brick walls of the original garage building on the site.

Apartment for P&M in Budapest, Hungary by GASPARBONTA

When I first visited this apartment (a 160 sqm part of a beautiful villa from the 30s), it charmed me instantly. My client, whom I’ve been working with for quite some time now felt it too, it had a certain fairy taleish magic moving around the walls. It was around that time he told me that he’s going to marry his girlfriend, whom he was living in an apartment I designed him earlier. This all made perfect sense in my head, a new part of life for the young couple and a new part of life for the old building. They all needed the same thing: a fresh start, a new canvas.

Flower Duplex in Venice, California by MODAL DESIGN

 
May 24th, 2018 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: MODAL DESIGN 

Located on a tight lot in Venice, California, the Flower Duplex is a union of opposites. Initiated by a local couple who had opposing styles, Modal Design resolved programmatic needs by replacing an existing duplex with a new structure that blended their distinct aesthetics. While the project was fairly straightforward programmatically, aesthetically the task was more challenging as their ideas for their new home were distinct. Hers: a rustic and potentially traditional home that evoked images of aging barns in her home state of Colorado. His: a modern and open space connected to the outdoors.
