Straw bale house by Brian Balfern Waite

 
March 17th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Brian Balfern Waite

A strawbale insulated, easily erected self-build home that is available as a kit.
It is a simple structure intended to exploit the cost savings of mass production yet flexible enough to cater for many situations.
The design of the structure has been reduced to basically one curved lightweight rib beam which are paired together to form a cruck ‘A’ frame. This cruck is then repeated every meter (bale length) for whatever length of building is required. So the length is infinite, the interior floor width is 5 to 7 meter on two levels, the height is also variable.
Every bale is supported to eliminate settlement and every bale is covered by the roofing which, together with a passive drought system, enables the building to cope with exposed locations.
The vaulted interior is totally free of structural restrictions and so can be divided, or not, to the owners needs.

Villa SR in Rijssen, The Netherlands by reitsema & partners architecten bna

 
March 14th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: reitsema & partners architecten bna

An environmentally friendly example house, connected to its surrounding landscape. The outcome of a close triangular collaboration between the clients, the architects + the construction engineer and the various manufacturers.

When older houses are preserved, it is often because of their recyclability. They have high ceilings, daylight, large rooms and wide doors. But there is one more important reason why we don’t demolish them. We love them, because their architecture is good and because they are made of beautiful materials. Preserve your house, or make a new one with a high long term value, and you make your house more environmentally friendly. By not only looking at the cost of the total investments, but being aware of the monthly costs, sustainable solutions become feasible.

Upper West Side Penthouse in New York by Turett Collaborative Architects

rticle source: Turett Collaborative Architects

Fifty four floors above Broadway, with the Statue of Liberty, the horizon over Long Island and the whole of Central Park in view, this Manhattan penthouse architecture project offered extraordinary potential. The owners had a vision for the space – clean design, a layout with the most panoramic views, and the celebration of a unique collection of Asian art. Architect Wayne Turett of Turett Collaborative Architects (TCA) recognized that the new home had to be a reflection of the clients’ values and ideas and support their close-knit family’s style of living and entertaining. The client sought out TCA for Turett’s design sensibility and broad experience in high-end residential architecture; early meetings revealed a quick rapport and established the intensely collaborative design relationship that would prevail throughout the project.
