K15 in Düsseldorf, ‎Germany by Pier7 Architekten

Transformation – WHEN REBUILDING BECOMES RETHINKING.

Thinking and planning provocatively.

Building into the existing context of a hillside was a challenge, which Pier7 confronted with simplicity and clarity. Guiding the light through the building and meticulously considering every detail was of utmost importance. The brief called for a one storey house towards the street, typical for this residential area in Düsseldorf. By cleverly offsetting the facade a scale floor is inserted, thus creating the illusion of a one storey building. As the building evolves towards the garden, the volumes are carved into the Hillside and the house becomes two and three storeys tall. The facade opens up towards a panoramic green landscape and simultaneously offers privacy. This allows for a private pool and a two level terrace. The ground level opens up towards the garden thus becoming one with nature. In the evening an ambient illumination adds a special touch to the facade and trees.

Adams Fleming House in Toronto, Canada by LGA Architectural Partners

On a street of historic, working-class cottages in Toronto’s west end, adjacent to a railway line and a supermarket parking lot, a vacant auto-body shop may have seemed like an unlikely impetus for a residence with a domestic character. The clients—Debbie Adams, a graphic designer, and Peter Fleming, a furniture designer/craftsman—had a limited budget but considerable talent and resources. Working with Levitt Goodman Architects, the project became a laboratory for artistic collaboration and experimentation. Over several years they have transformed the industrial site into an artful urban oasis.

PRIMERA in Gurgaon, India by R+D Studio

 
October 12th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: R+D Studio 

The architecture of the house explores a play of volumes, materials and stark play of light & shadow. The volume blocking is strong & rigid with a further accentuation through contrasting materials – the stunning corten steel with stark whites. Corten steel is used prominently on the façade with seamless joining techniques following a strict geometry. The monotony of white blocks is broken with sharp block patterns created through aluminum grooves.
