The Rotating Radius House in New Mexico by jantzen studio

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

Article source: jantzen studio

The Rotating Radius House is an experimental interactive architecture project designed to provide a special weekend retreat place for two people living in New Mexico.

At the center is a twenty-foot diameter glass and steel cylindrical space formed by twelve perimeter sliding glass doors, and by twelve segments of a sloped glass and steel roof. Each of the sliding glass doors is fitted with interior privacy shades and screens. This space contains a large centrally located light, a bed, chairs, tables, a food preparation pod, and a bath/toilet pod, all mounted on wheels. The entire house is powered by a large solar panel mounted on the top of the structure, and by auxiliary propane gas, stored nearby in steel tanks. Rainwater is collected off of the roof and purified for use in the house, and stored in an outside reservoir.

L House in New York by LANZA Atelier

Sunday, December 11th, 2016

Article source: LANZA Atelier

House L project derives from the need to create a new connection for the rooms of an existing house in Valle de Bravo, in a very beautiful natural environment. So far, some romos were accessed through other rooms and why the owners did not feel comfortable to invite friends because they could not offer them privacy.

The initial project also included a new two-story independent volume, which functioned as an apartment with a living room, bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette.

Tea Houses in Silicon Valley, California by Swatt | Miers Architects

Friday, December 9th, 2016

Article source: Swatt | Miers Architects

The idea for the tea houses originated years ago, when the owner and his young daughter explored the remote hills surrounding their Silicon Valley home, discovering an idyllic setting below a ridge, under a grove of large California Live Oak trees. At first, the family thought the setting would be perfect for a tree house. Years later, after the 6000 square foot main house was extensively remodeled, the vision was realized as three individual tea houses, places where one could simply retreat into nature.

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

Article source: Matt Fajkus Architecture

Incorporating the site’s dynamic landscape into the daily life of its residents, the [Bracketed Space] House is designed as a meaningfully-framed procession through the property with nuanced natural lighting throughout. A continuous and jogging retaining wall from outside to inside embeds the structure below natural grade at the front with flush transitions at its rear facade. All indoor spaces open up to a courtyard which terraces down to the tree canopy, creating a readily visible and occupiable transitional space between man-made and nature.
