House „O“ is situated on Silba island in Croatia. It replaced the original modest single-family house surrounded with thick vegetation. The house perfectly meets the requirements of its owners who intend to enjoy its cool interior and its sheltered courtyard. Areas of the house used by day and those used by night are placed on different floors and differ in character. All details of the house have been designed and selected by the architects so as to meet the needs and wishes of its occupants. The house is designed in accordance with the surrounding typology in an ambience dominated by Mediterranean light.

Hayvenhurst Folie in Encino, California by NEW THEME Inc.

 
February 18th, 2015 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source:  NEW THEME Inc. 

Originally contracted to restore a family’s mid-century home in Encino, California, NEW THEME Inc. was brought on to develop an inspirational, unique and didactic playhouse for the family’s children. The playhouse was inspired by the concept of a “folie”, which, amongst its many meanings, also refers to a small structure popular in France for recreational purposes. By naming it the “Hayvenhurst Folie”, it signifies an escape from not only the main house but also the energy grid of the neighborhood. The structure utilizes significant sustainable systems to achieve an off-the-grid energy profile that provides a scalable model of energy responsibility.

Walk-on balcony in Gliwice, Poland by ZALEWSKI ARCHITECTURE GROUP

 
February 18th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source:  ZALEWSKI ARCHITECTURE GROUP

There are ideas that arise from the need of a particular moment. Such a need – another hot day of summer spent in the office and a thought “if only I could go for a walk” – became inspiration for a project of a path suspended in the air, a balcony Walk-on. It is also one of the ideas to change a sad courtyard, that we overlook every day out of the office windows on the 3rd floor, to give the courtyard a bit of magic. A normal path is tortuous, winds, does not lead directly to the goal, surprises, relaxes, gives contact with nature. Therefore our path should also flow freely in space – giving you a moment of relaxation, rest, allowing you to change the perspective. This influenced its shape – it winds freely and intertwines with itself – it allows for a relaxing walk “from office to office.” Longing for a bit of greenery made us treat the path as a large pot. We filled it with grass that can grow as it wants – after all it’s just a path.

Holy Cross House in Montréal, Canada by TBA / Thomas Balaban Architecte

Recipient of the Residential space 1,600-3,200 ft2 Award at Québec’s Grands Prix du Design 2014.

Located in the city’s up and coming Southwest neighbourhood this 300 m2 detached house hides a rich spatial complexity behind its tough working class façade. Turning to the neighbourhood’s post-war veteran’s home as its formal point of departure, the architects set out to make a house that simultaneously fits in and stands out from its heterogeneous context without resorting to mimicry and without sacrificing the contemporary nature of the project.
