Two family house Gaicomuzzi in Kaltern, Italy by Monovolume architecture + design (designed using ArchiCAD)

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

Article source: Monovolume architecture + design

Giacomuzzi house is a duplex building. It is conceived as a highly compact body to fulfill energy issues and it fits into the sloping terrain to exploit the landscape. The house is oriented towards the path of the sun and overlooks a stunning sight. The site is located on the outskirts of the village Caldaro sulla strada del vino, where between the house and the lake Caldaro there are just fields and vineyards. To show up this wonderful view, a continuous wall closes three sides of the building, whereas the south facade features wide windows and balconies.

Lower Grangegorman in Dublin 7, Ireland by ODOS Architects

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

Article source: ODOS Architects

This new residential development, for a motorcycle enthusiast, adjacent to No.10 Grangegorman Villas, Grangegorman, Dublin 7 is an alternative reaction to the more traditional city centre infill residential projects; an unapologetic piece of architecture sitting within a strong urban context defined by both site and planning constraints. The building is essentially two living plates over a workshop connected by a vertical service and circulation core. While the character of this new structure is unmistakeably contemporary it has been designed to sit discreetly within its more traditional context, while giving the end of the terrace the strong presence it deserves.

Sheepstable in Almere, the Netherlands by 70F Architecture

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

Article source: 70F Architecture

The city of Almere has a sheep population of about 80 sheep. The sheep are mobilized to keep the powerful weed “acanthus” or “bears-breech” that grows in the “vroege vogel” – forest and “kromsloot” – park in Almere under control. To centralize and house this population, a sheep stable was needed. The stable is designed with an a-symmetrical homogeneous cross-section. The part of the building where the sheep reside is relatively low; the high part is situated above the (public) pathway and the hay storage section, making it possible to store a maximum amount of hay. This shape also creates a natural flow for the air inside the building, which is refreshed by two slits at the foot of each long side of the building.

Tree House Porch in Terrell Hills, Texas by John Grable Architects

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

Article source: John Grable Architects

Nestled in a 50’s era suburb, the design program called for two items: renovating the entry façade of a modest home and adding a screened porch to the backyard.  However, the client had a strict construction budget. In response, the role of the porch was doubled to serve both as a dynamic façade for the front elevation and as a casual outdoor gathering space.

Sited above Albuquerque’s Petroglyph National Monument, the Escarpment House is a visually porous version of the classic New Mexican courtyard typology. The house’s spatial sequence is a progression through outdoor spaces – from an entry court though a glazed interior courtyard to the Sandia View Patio.

Conversion of the “Casa grande” Pavilion of Psychiatric Hospital into a Psychogeriatrical Pavilion. 2002. 1st prize (Finalized work) Constructed surface: 4.437 m².

EPR-House by Luis Aldrete Architects

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

The project responds to the morphology and topography of the field taking advantage the length of itself to place the house footprint and achieve more garden area and more cubic meters. So the exercise was to work the superposition of two volumes. The first is a steel basement that gives the impression of solidity and rootedness to the earth at the same time opens to the terrace and garden. The second is a box that has a finishing made from land and pigments to get a terracotta tone that breaks up to achieve the patios that seem to make incisions giving views and privacy inside.
