1 Milman Road Extension by Syte Architects

 
June 12th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Syte Architects

The proposal relates to the construction of a new contemporary two-storey brick extension to an historic Edwardian house. The design of the proposed extension has been defined by the site conditions and constraints.

The most unique characteristic of 1 Milman Road is the corner bay window. Most houses at the end of terrace terminate in a blank brick side elevation, most notably the building at the rear of the garden, along Harvist Road. On this property however, the terrace turns the corner and continues onto the Harvist Road elevation by using a distinct corner bay window. The new extension seeks to repeat the device of the corner window. The modern interpretation is intended to link the elevations as if they were continuous, akin to the corner bay window, but on a subdued scale.

ALDEA HOUSE in Mérida, Mexico by Seijo Peon Arquitectos & Asociados

 
June 12th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Seijo Peon Arquitectos & Asociados

The site of the house is in front of a golf course. On our first visit to the site was remarkable the amount of native trees that were in the field. As a first request to our client we asked for a detailed topographic study of all the trees in the site. From the beginning we intended to respect all the trees. Once we had the study in our hands, we faced a notable challenge… the possibility of keep all the trees, at least all of the medium and large size, assumed significant complexity. After studying multiple alternatives with conventional layouts (U shape, L shape, in two or three volumes, etc…) we figured out that in all cases we would have to cut an important amount of trees.

Fall House in CA by FOUGERON ARCHITECTURE

 
June 12th, 2014 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: FOUGERON ARCHITECTURE

This three-bedroom home, on Big Sur’s spectacular south coast, is anchored in the natural beauty and power of this California landscape. Our design strategy embeds the building within the land, creating a structure inseparable from its context. The site offers dramatic views: a 250-foot drop to the Pacific Ocean both along the bluff and the western exposure. Yet it demands a form more complex than a giant picture window.

WAIATARUA HOUSE in AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND by Monk Mackenzie

 
June 12th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Monk Mackenzie

The brief was for a new house on a challenging, steep site in a bush clad creek gully. One of the design challenges was to insert a bold intervention into a sensitive bush reserve whilst still maintaining a sense of modesty and poetic.

The house was designed for a couple in their mid-sixties who had always wanted a house surrounded by nature though not far removed from city life – a place or respite from the speed of city life.

Article source: Pol Femenias Arquitectes

The intervention takes place in the middle of one of the densest neighborhoods in SantFeliu de Llobregat, near Barcelona. A working-class neighborhood, grown around the old textile factories, wall to wall, with humble dwellings of the workers themselves. The demolition of one of the last factories still standing was used to build underground parking to supply the district of La Salut , leaving in the place where the factory was a large gap in the form of concrete cover for this parking.

AUCKLAND ZOO in New Zealand by Monk Mackenzie with Glamuzina Patterson

 
June 11th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Monk Mackenzie with Glamuzina Patterson

Due to expanding giraffe numbers the Auckland Zoo needed a new a giraffe breeding shelter; essentially a functional oversized shed with two dens and a keeper area.

The design team responded to the brief by proposing a shelter that assumed an understated external appearance, whose mass was playfully broken down with intersecting roof forms that articulated the junction between the two dens whilst accentuating the collision of human and giraffe scales.
