Article source: MOHAMED KEILANI ARCHITECTS

The apartment, part of a nineteenth century building situated in the Roman neighborhood of Monteverde, is articulated by the presence of a sculptural volume functioning like a filter, staircase and container.

Exploiting the skylight, a vertical connection was made with the rooftop using a wireframe stairway, created by design and with the additional task of connecting the living room with the kitchen, filtering the two areas with a glass sliding door.

One year after purchasing Old Orchard, the homeowners brought on Blaze Makoid to give the residence a complete redo. The original structure was configured as a linear, single story, glass and metal box with grade carved down to basement level at both ends. This provided below-grade access to a garage at one end and a small courtyard for two lower level bedrooms at the other.

A+M Residence in Sardis, Mississippi by archimania

 
January 15th, 2018 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: archimania 

An active couple wanted a simple and clean, yet tough and durable, retirement home. Sited in a cattle pasture in rural Mississippi, this house is a retreat for an active couple to escape busy city life. Appreciating the simple agrarian structures of the region, the clients requested a house that was simple and clean, yet tough and durable. The owners are avid chefs and enjoy outdoor activities like cooking, biking, swimming and dining. A linear bar forms the primary body of the house with its proportions intentionally exaggerated to create a long line when viewed from a distance. The simple form of the shed profile creates a gable when combined with the projection to the rear which frames the pool.

Diopter residence in Attiki, Greece by panos.nikolaidis.design

 
January 15th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: panos.nikolaidis.design

Designed to assure the privacy of its residents, this house could be described as a bunker, massive, imposing and seclusive. A child, though, would say that it is nothing other than the head of a robot! Depending on the background of each individual, it encompasses different meanings. Actually most locals consider it unpleasant to say the least! It’s just a matter of perspective.
