TETON RESIDENCE in Jackson, Wyoming by Dynia Architects

 
December 3rd, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Dynia Architects

Located near the foot of the Teton Mountains, the site and a relatively modest program with a desire for intimate scale, led to placing the main house and guest quarters in separate buildings configured to form outdoor spaces. With mountains rising to the northwest and a stream cutting through the southeast corner of the lot, this placement of the main house and guest cabin distinctly responds to the two scales of the site. The public and private wings of the main house define the exterior space to the northwest, which is visually enclosed by the prominence of the mountains beyond. At a more intimate scale, the garden walls of the main house and guest cabin enclose the entry court to the south east.

HOUSE AND STUDIO YC in Barcelona, Spain by Real Time Architecture

 
December 3rd, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Real Time Architecture

The building is situated in the center of the plot, respecting the limits for construction and plot ratio.

The house rises as a single body. Its shape is influenced by physical and morphological conditions and by the program.

The initial idea of the project is to expand the building up inside the parcel and surrounding existing trees in order to preserve the maximum possible trees; later the shape was adapted to the program, to acquire the final setting.

“The brief was to create a holiday home for a young family that could be enjoyed by an extended circle of friends and family. The house needed to create an internal environment that maximised the connection with the view, minimised views on neighbouring buildings and created sunny wind free outdoor living spaces,” says Greg Truen, Project Partner.

JACER – training center in Ústí nad Labem-město, Czech Republic by 3+1 architekti

 
December 2nd, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: 3+1 architekti

Originally a farmhouse, built in the second half of the nineteenth century in Předlice in the suburbs of Ústí nad Labem.

Under the communist regime it was occupied by agricultural cooperative which used the estate strictly pragmatically – only what was immediately needed was taken care of, the rest was neglected. Since the 90´s, the place was deserted and rapidly fell apart. Despite devastation of the area, there was still a strong sense of the original conception and smart design left.

Massive objects along the perimeter of the property define scale and space of the large yard area. Two of those – fifty meters long stables on the western edge of the property and sixty two meters long barn on the south – form basis of our proposal.
