Article source: Sohrab Zafari

This house has been created. It tries to be understood primarily as a complex spatial structure and as a cultural fusion building, as a labyrinth of light, as a new, fresh wind that brushes gently over this place.

Y7-house in Nagasaki, Japan by Architect Show Co.,Ltd

 
July 20th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Architect Show Co.,Ltd

The site is located in the hill of the mountain which can take an extensive view of Omura Bay in Nagasaki. Main concept is to harmonize buildings and surrounding natural environment without destroying original natural landscape.

In order not to destroy sloping land, I made basis protrude from flat terrain and designed one part of house floating from ground and extending in air. Also I spread a planting net and performed planting of a lawn. By this way, I harmonize the house and surrounding natural environment with floating house in natural terrain.

House in Los Conejos II in Molina de Segura, Spain by LA MIRATECA

 
July 20th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: LA MIRATECA

‘Casa en los Conejos II’ is the result of a reflection about how to cope with a huge plot of land because of its particular topography. It has been opted for just one roof covering different rooms and putting them in order and demarcating the outdoor spaces that are going to be used. Showing the „natural relief‟ is one of the final premises of the project.

House 60 in Toronto, Canada by gh3

 
July 20th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: gh3

House 60 is a renovation and addition to a 50’s suburban house on a large lot in Toronto, Canada.

The existing house was largely introverted—small windows, low ceilings—with a traditional plan—living room, separate dining room and cramped kitchen on the ground floor, and a maze of bedrooms on the second. An undistinguished building from the exterior—brick with a shallow sloping roof—adorned over time with a wrought iron front porch and aluminum awnings. However underwhelming, the existing house was considered by gh3 as a material resource to be reused, rather than abandoned, a position consistent with first principles of sustainability.

Article source: ROBERTO ERCILLA ARQUITECTURA

The traditional Ibizan house is organized by adding rooms, which give an imperfect image with high plasticity.

In house nº 2, the white cubic volumes are articulated among themselves by means of turns, generating interesting residual spaces and cross views.
