House with a large hipped roof in Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan by Naoi Architecture & Design Office

Article source:  Naoi Architecture & Design Office

This is a house for a family of four, situated on one of the lots for sale at a newly developed area in “satoyama” or semi-natural woodlands. The land is too large for a simple program requested by the client: a private house with a garage for two cars. Taking advantage of the large site area, we proposed a spacious one-story house that is open to the surrounding neighborhood, based on a design concept of “connecting space to nature”. The site faces two streets on the south and the north sides and no fences are installed along the both borders. The front yards on the both sides visually serve as pubic park although they are not accessible by non-residents.

We were commissioned to build Infrax West’s new offices after winning a competition in which Infrax’s high degree of ambition had to be expressed in a strong conceptual design that matched and enhanced its corporate identity. Our characteristic ecological and sustainable values were given expression in this project by using a metaphor for a forest in which a host of slender concrete trunks were topped with a broad green ‘crown’.

LIVSRUM Cancer Counselling Centre in Næstved, Denmark by EFFEKT

The centre is designed as a coherent cluster of seven small houses situated around two green courtyards. Each house with an individual function but as a whole they form a continuous spatial experience.

Each house in the coherent cluster has its own specific function which as a whole form a coherent sequence of different spaces such as a library, kitchen, conversation rooms, lounge, workshops, fitness, wellness etc. The building offers a variety of different spatial variations specially selected to embrace informal counseling and visitation with a focus on user comfort and well-being. A varying ceiling height and choice of natural materials leads to a building with its own unique architectural expression clearly differentiates it from the surrounding hospital buildings.

Project California by LEICHT

Article source: LEICHT  

From the outside it seems reserved and self-contained but inside surprisingly open, that is the effect of the mi­nimalist family home of this Japanese couple. They live in a beautiful road in Marina del Rey in California. The in­fluence of traditional Japanese architecture is very clear. The layout is based on the measurement of a tatami mat, the Japanese rice straw mat. The simplicity of the fur­nishings and materials together with the minimalism, are characteristic of the Japanese way of life, expressed in the architectural language.

Skyline Residence in Los Angeles, Ca by Belzberg Architects

 
February 2nd, 2014 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Belzberg Architects

Perched atop a ridgeline in the Hollywood Hills, the presence of the Skyline Residence represents an honest approach to creating an environmentally sensitive building without sacrificing beauty nor budget.  The pre-existing site presented a challenge in terms of constructability, the client presented the challenge of limited allowable expenses, and the architect was resilient to marginalize beauty and originality.  The requirements of an architecture to satisfy each of these constraints are found in that which is constant and continuous at a given site.

This project involves the building of a block of 18 premises for habitation purposes next to the Óbidos Lake in the future site of the Golf and Country Club – Quinta do Bom Sucesso.

These will be located in one of the far sides of the Quinta with a valley to the east, one of the access roads to the west, a thicket to the south and a group of dwellings to the north. Our proposal is to build on this site, the central theme being that each premise should have an interactive relationship with the surrounding area, under the following conditions
