Coral Gables Residence in Miami, Florida by Touzet Studio

Article source: Touzet Studio

The “City-side” façade presents itself as two restrained stone-clad volumes – a “mask” clad in material very much identified with the architecture of Coral Gables. The lower volume is rough-hewn Florida Keystone and the larger, main volume is clad in honed limestone. The mask is penetrated by only two openings on the western façade and a “frieze” of windows above. Very little of the house is visible from the street – even the thrust of the sculptural roof is hidden from view.

House in Minamikarasuyama, Japan by atelier HAKO architects

The house sit on a narrow and long site, while facing a vacant lot too tiny to build the building beyond the road on the front east side, and facing a pedestrian path on the back west side.

On the south long side, buildings like apartments might be built and might cause the lack of the privacy and the natural light of the house in the future, in spite of the good condition the metered parking offers now.

Article source: SHJWORKS Architectural

This project addresses the theme of unique variation and belonging to a community. A community which is both imaginary and definite.Imaginary because each of the fourteen structures creates the illusion of a circle. And definite because the opening of each structure is oriented towards the same physical point.

The main purpose of the park is to allow tourists to view the largest dam across the Yellow River. People can also swim in a lake made by enlarging the original river course (river water now exits through a new course north of the park). The teahouse is located between the lake (west of which looms the dam) and a small hill of about 15 meters high. Behind the hill lie other attractions of the park.
