Shou sugi ban in Maarn, the Netherlands by BYTR Architects

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

Article source: BYTR Architects

The sculptural form of this extension is a nice contrast with the minimal  expression of the 1950’s house. The shape of the extension and the position  of it’s windows are carefully related to the interior functions. The skylight in  the highest point provides extra daylight to flood the kitchen desk.  The stretched window in the back facade provides a panoramic view into  the garden.

Möbius House, ’t Gooi in The Netherlands by UNStudio

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

Article source: UNStudio

With its low-slung, elongated outlines the private house forms a link between the different features of the surroundings; the spatial loop enables the house to take in the extreme aspects of the landscape. By being stretched to the maximum, rather than displaying a compact or tall shape, the house conveys from the interior the idea of a walk in the countryside.

The Möbius loop, the spatial quality of which means that it is present in both plan and section, translates into the interior into a 24-hour cycle of sleeping, working and living. As the loop turns inside out the materialization follows these change-overs; glazed details and concrete structural elements swap roles as glazed facades are put in front of the concrete construction, dividing walls are made of glass and furniture such as tables and stairs are made of concrete.

Villa Rotterdam in The Netherlands by OOZE architects

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

Article source: OOZE architects

Living in a Structure

The project is a redevelopment of a villa located in a green neighborhood of Rotterdam.

The existing villa was composed of an eclectic set of buildings stuck together forming a strange architectural patchwork: An original building from the early 20th century, a first extension built in 1991 mirroring the house and a final touch in 2003 to add 3 rooms and several facilities just before the current owner moved in.

Residential church XL in Utrecht, The Netherlands by Zecc Architects

Saturday, January 14th, 2012

Article source: Zecc Architects

RESIDENTIAL CHURCH UTRECHT

Context

In the Netherlands there are hundreds of empty churches. Since 1970 more than 1000 churches are closed by church communities. More than 1/3 was demolished and half of the Catholic churches were thrown down. The coming years another 1000 churches will lose their original function. Fewer people go to church and the costs for conservation are no longer affordable. Fortunately, demolition is less common nowadays, partly because churches are often on the monuments list. Re-use is the only way to prevent long-lasting vacancy or demolition. The purpose of the Re-use of the St-Jakobuskerk was to revalue the dignified monument with little interventions as possible.

In the area Hatert, on the edge of the city of Nijmegen, the housing corporations Portaal and Talis organize a great renewal operation. Most of the current housing does not comply with contemporary standards or needs a substantial make over.
For this operation the city of Nijmegen worked in cooperation with the office of Khandekar towards a masterplan in which most of the present houses are renovated or renewed. Besides this upgrading, the open areas in the neighbourhood will be filled with several new housing projects.

Villa Veth in Hattem, The Netherlands by 123DV (designed using AutoCAD and Cinema 4D)

Sunday, December 11th, 2011

Article source: 123DV

Floating from time to time

Villa Veth is a modern, customized villa, a private residence for a family of four. It is situated on a large parcel of land by a forest near the idyllic town of Hattem in the eastern part of the Netherlands.

The driveway on the entrance side leads to a carport situated below the house. This places the cars out of sight and gives the impression of the house partially hovering. It is a simple architectural approach with a great visual effect. The house looks sleek and abstract on the outside, but has a warm and cozy interior.
