Stratum House seeks a new way of concrete casting method simulating a geologic formation. Concrete works in a combination of cement, water and aggregate. Cement is mixed with water to form a paste, and its properties are strengthened together with aggregates. These pastes wrap and fill aggregates of various sizes and become hardened. The project started with a curiosity of concrete composition, its casting process, and reaction on the results from testing the changes of its constituents.

Kyomachi House in Shiga, Japan by HEARTH ARCHITECTS

 
October 10th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: HEARTH ARCHITECTS

This house is located along old streetscape in “Minakuchi-juku”, which is one of Fifty-three stages of the Tokaido.  Although, it was consolidated during the Edo Period. The community road and the space are narrow, so it’s impossible to make large space between the road and the house, and it’s difficult to build a house in the southeast in spite of the corner location in the northeast, which is good site location. So, I arranged inner garden in southeast. In doing so, I not only solved the problem point concerning the ground, but also made rich living climate.

Rio das Contas House in Xangri-lá, Brazil by 151 OFFICE ARQUITETURA

 
October 10th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: 151 OFFICE ARQUITETURA

The initial idea for this project, on the Xangri-lá beach, was to give the air of a rural house located on the beach, using a considerable area of the land. In order to meet the owner’s expectations, who like an open house without losing privacy, all of the faces of the social area were designed as a part of the ex-ternal area. In addition, natural light and cross ventilation were used with the aim of avoiding the use of air conditioning. Energy saving was also optimized with the use of LED technology in all ambients. The concrete walls, beyond creating an inequivalent brute and rustic appearance, offer advantages regarding the temperature and low maintenance.

Minima | Maxima in Astana, Kazakhstan by MARC FORNES / THEVERYMANY

 
October 10th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: MARC FORNES / THEVERYMANY

Why, among visitors of all ages, does it seem instinctive to engage the structure playfully? For instance, to tuck one’s body inside a pleat at the base, assuming a contorted curved form that matches the structure itself. To be inside Minima | Maxima is to be transported to a strange, future, science fiction world, removing us from ourselves and finding within a sense of naive wonder. The project is radically different than the built environments we know. The impulse is to explore, to visually wander. Transformed into a childlike state, visitors can do so without the pretense of reference or concepts, employing instead the potent investigative powers of our senses.
