House in Shfela, Israel by Dan and Hila Israelevitz Architects

 
September 20th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Dan and Hila Israelevitz Architects

Two level house, ground floor and basement. The building’s concept is an integration with the natural landscape in the area and in the plot, while creating a dramatic entrance façade that is still restrained and mysterious toward the street. Instead of highlighting the large and regular windows, and the doors, the idea was to hint at the building by creating two concrete beams with a line of trees between them.

bm Modular One in Washington, D.C. by Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

Article source: Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

A successful builder / developer with a history of constructing modular houses purchased a lot in a desirable neighborhood near Washington, D.C. with the intention of building a spec house.  When a potential buyer expressed interest in the lot, the developer proposed a modular house as a solution to a tight budget and time constraints.  However, the craftsman and colonial style modular houses typically built by the developer did not appeal to the potential client, who desired a light-filled, modern house.

Two stories of interior space is divided into public space on the 1st floor and private space on 2nd floor and the user can feel the large space on the first floor. When they open the door, they can experience expanded space directly connected to the exterior.
