Dihedral House in Boulder, CO by Arch11

Tuesday, December 25th, 2012

Article source: Arch11

Design strategy:

This modern house designed by Arch11 is a place where the domestic life of a young family weaves with the values of two professional athletes and the outdoors. Where this distinction may separate those roles, lines in this structure seeks to bind and integrate. Anchored on a downtown corner site, this Boulder, Colo. home has an all glass living room and Site-cast, board-formed concrete walls. The latter both moors the building to its site and provides thermal mass to control temperature swings.

The house is organized around crossing dihedral lines–one phenomenal and one tectonic—that shear the interior volumes.

Housing in Taipei, Taiwan by Chin Architects

Tuesday, December 25th, 2012

Article source: Chin Architects

At Kuo Yang Tien Mu, which is located at an important urban junction, I attempt to transform the building envelope that protects the residents’ private lives into a meaningful public city façade. The architecture is to initiate an intriguing dialogue with the disordered built environment through a unique yet contemporary gesture. The design wishes to break away from the typical mundane and repetitive urban residential housing, and express a vibrant city life specific to Taipei City instead.
