Vila Aspicuelta in São Paulo, Brasil by TACOA arquitetos

 
May 18th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: TACOA arquitetos

The eight houses that compose Vila Aphins challenge the logic of vertical buildings: the different units are disposed side by side horizontally, and function vertically. The street continues through the villa, partially covered by the building, and gives access to the staircase of each individual unit. The parking lot, gardens and common areas are also placed on this street.  On the first floor of every house, one single area provides space for the kitchen, dining and living.

Capturing the character of Dalí, Jugendstil forms, Spanish facades and nautical life in one villa.

The ‘Villa Dalí’ clients asked for a very personal house which would reflect their passions. They are nautical minded and have a love of art, sculptures and especially the work of Salvador Dalí. During the initial design discussions 123DV architecture were also showed pictures of ancient Spanish architecture. They were fascinated by the closed white stucco facades and metal fences in Jugendstil design. So the challenge was to combine in one villa the beautiful Jugendstil forms, the closed facades, the treasures of the diving world and the unique works of the artist Dalí.

Brick Wall House in Woerden, Netherlands by 123DV

 
May 17th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: 123DV

The location of this residence is highly exceptional: flanked by small-scale detached semi-classical houses with gabled roofs on one side, a large apartment block planned on the other. The client wanted his dwelling to provide maximum privacy. The house represents the transition between these two worlds: the façade facing the apartment block is closed with the exception of a protruding stairwell that offers an intriguing view along the façade; the other side of the building consists of an informal configuration of rectangular volumes fitted with a large number of windows.

Jalan Mat Jambol in Singapore by Zarch Collaboratives

 
May 17th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Zarch Collaboratives

Approaching the house from the street level, one notices a raw, chamfered concrete fascia. The windowless façade reveals the interior of the house, almost as if the house is still in a state of construction, primitive in its language of expression. The raw elevation provides glimpses of a spiral staircase drum, with a seemingly makeshift timber box protruding from the articulated structural elements, augmenting the sense of theatrics in a neighbourhood of quiet terrace houses.
