Article source: Christian von Düring architecte EPFL SIA 

The challenge of this project was to integrate a large program on a relatively narrow plot while maintaining usable outdoor surfaces. An additional concern, was that the access to the plot being from the south, a solution had to be found to manage an entrance while ensuring privacy for the indoor and outdoor spaces.

The plan for this 5,500 square foot private residence located along the Intracoastal Waterway is influenced from by the views, the irregular pie-shaped lot, the requirement that garages cannot face the street and the need to locate a septic field on the property.  All of these criteria influenced the plan and geometry of the home, and one of the most prominent features is the cantilevered second floor at the front façade.

Fismuler in Madrid, Spain by oficina INVISIBLE

Is there where fismuler want to be?

A semibasement of 420m2 at Sagasta street in Madrid, with such a small entry that seems to access a cave. An interior without scarcely light, with windows translucent and almost hidden by plaster moldings, with almost no space to move through a maze of hallways, cavities, toilets, two rooms after turning down a few stairs, with a ceiling too low … an almost claustrophobic. But yes, with a very large kitchen and almost ready to use directly by the cooks.

Gibbston Valley House in New Zealand by Team Green Architects

 
October 28th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Team Green Architects

A young family bought a fantastic sunny section in Gibbston Valley and wanted a Passive House. This house was designed utilising all Passive House principles. It achieves a high level of energy efficiency due to its compact form in which the main rooms are orientated to follow the suns path. Air-tightness, balanced heat exchange, high levels of insulation, and thermally broken windows, all help to mean that this house did not require any heating until well into June, when the fire was first lit.
