Khazar Residential Building in Tehran, Iran by S-A-L Design Studio

 
August 3rd, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: S-A-L Design Studio

Project’s site is located in one of North Tehran vicinities which comprises of condensed cluster buildings and narrow alleys. Therefore, approximately an amount of 48 sq. m. of the total land area of 350 sq. m. was neglected by the municipality code in order to widen the alley. In addition to the client’s required physical program, this issue led the building to be extremely compressed, as well as parking lots to be hard to design and the mass of building to be solid for shaping.

GMP – Yorba Linda Residence in California by Domaen

The project hugs a difficult hillside that is in most part subject to a future landslide and therefore in large parts unbuildable. The current proposal takes advantage of an existing berm to anchor the second story with all the private areas so that the building bridges as a quasi-landform over the entrance. The building is Y-shaped to accommodate a private courtyard and maximize the buildable area of the lot.

Early architecture was built maybe merely to accommodate people. As time changes, city breath permeates into architecture and stamps them with urbanization. Just like the old residential buildings in shanghai.

Fashionable Villa with Rich Feng Shui in China by Another Design Interntional

Julian and his wife, Mana, a fashion designer, chose the 3,500 sq ft, five-storey house they have now been living in for 18 months for its stunning views over the country park, Plover Cove Reservoir and the South China Sea.

“It is a famous feng shui area because you can see three ‘dishes’ of water – the reservoir and the sea on either side of an island – which is a sign of very good fortune. There are green mountain views and we can also see the Kwun Yum [statue] from our rooftop on a clear day,” says Chan. “I love it because we are so close to nature – you can hear the birds sing during the day and the insects whistling at night. One of our priorities was the private glass-fronted terrace [with water wall] so we could take advantage of our natural environment.”

Coupée Croisée (Cut & Cross) in Montréal, Canada by YH2

 
August 2nd, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: v2com

Coupée Croisée is the extension of a Ville Mont-Royal cottage, the enclosed garden-city of Montreal.

With quality lands of good dimensions, the framework is overshadowed by a neighborhood of residences with poor architectural qualities.

In order to build upon the natural qualities of the location while respecting the rigorous municipal regulatory constraints, we adopted a concept that gave its name to the project. The building was cut (coupé) in two, maintaining the street-side half, and completing it with a new half focused towards the yard. The residence is organized by a cross (croisé) pattern.

The “Blanche” Chalet in La Malbaie, Canada by ACDF Architecture

 
August 2nd, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: v2com

The “Blanche” Chalet, whose name evokes the spirit of the vernacular houses of the region, is situated in La Malbaie’s area of the “Terrasses Cap à l’Aigle”. Its simple and pure architecture gently complements the landscape of Charlevoix in a modern fashion.

The raw concrete materiality of the lower level is a nod to the stone foundations of the old wooden barns that once swept the landscape. This base also serves as the foundation for the main entrance and houses the technical functions of the cottage. Perched on the podium, the upper two levels are clad in a white stained wood, which is reminiscent of lime plaster that was applied to the ancestral homes of the area. The wood is smooth or raw textured and, at times, creates an openwork siding, depending on the façade, bringing lightness and joy to the house.
