Our Mobile Home is a functional art structure designed for people who want to use their art, instead of just looking at it. The Mobile Home structure is 28 feet tall, and 12 feet square. It is made of prefabricated painted and insulated steel. The design originated from a series of small sculptures called, the House as a Metaphor. In this series of sculptures the iconic house shape is played with in a variety of abstracted contexts, juxtaposing the house with other recognizable symbols.

site

‘Rue Achard’ is the main artery in the Bacalan area created by the lengthening of the Bordeaux quayside. The project sits on two small Greenfield sites, each roughly 600m2, one at the junction of ‘rue Achard’ and ‘rue de la Delbos’ (building A), and the other behind running the length of the ‘cité Tirepois’, (building B). The whole articulate around this preserved field path. In the neighbourhood, it is the last of its kind – at the very least, the only one which kept this specific nature.

Vellore House hosts twenty abandoned and parentless children in support to a special care program that follows deprived children from early childhood and beyond in education and training. The project layout was defined through a participative process that has allowed to solve the main issues of this special family: children feel protected and free to play, while the mummy can watch them confidently. Functions are divided into five volumes arranged in order to form two little courtyards. In the center, under a wide flat roof, the dining and gathering space can be completely opened up on two sides.

Barbaros House in İzmir, Turkey by Onurcan Çakır

Article source: Onurcan Çakır

Barbaros House is located in Barbaros Village of Urla, İzmir. On the upper east side of the building site, the techno park area of Izmir Institute of Technology is located. While designing the house, the main idea was to achieve a silent living space in a natural environment. Local stone and reinforced concrete were used for the walls and structural system of this project. Both materials have high surface densities and thus provide good acoustic insulation.

14 UNITS OF SOCIAL HOUSING AND MOTHER AND CHILD WELFARE CENTER (PMI)-SIEMP in Paris, France by inSpace architecture

 
January 24th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: inSpace architecture

The project at 73 boulevard de la Villette in the 10th arrondissement of Paris comprises 14 units of social housing for the SIEMP and a Mother and Child Welfare Center (Protection Maternelleet Infantile, or PMI) for the Department of Families and Infants (DFPE) of the city of Paris. The integration of the project into the lot demonstrates the intention to set up a building that assimilates the composition with the context, its morphologies and urban specificities, and thus designed as an element that reflects its environment. The building expresses two distinct aspects of reality: Life on the boulevard, and life in the heart of the city block. This duality is developed at various levels of the building’s conception.

Floating house in Ogasa, JAPAN by Shuhei Goto Architects

 
January 24th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Shuhei Goto Architects 

A concept of this house is a “new openness” in densely built-up residential areas. The site is surrounded by the houses of neighbors, so the main theme of design is to form “a space excellent in privacy” and “an open space with brightness”.A 360 degree opening has been realized by using a steel frame between the wooden first and second floor. A living room is surrounded by the sky on every side, and a resident doesn’t have to care about neighbors. This house can bring him/her a bright and healthful life.
