A spring 2012 graduate architecture studio focused on the design and development of a “Wash/Pack Pavilion” for the campus’ Sustainable Student Farm.  The farm was initiated in 2009 to promote alternative growing practices and sustainable agriculture research.

Hillside House in Suzhou, China by Pu Miao Architecture

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

Article source: Pu Miao Architecture

Hillside houses tend to belong to one of the two types, the terraces and the tower. While the tower has a more prominent visual appearance, the stepped profile of the terraces allows residents in the rooms same-level accesses to exterior spaces. This design explores a third type–the combined–that takes advantages from both existing models and minimizes their shortcomings. The new prototype tries to produce a better relationship between indoor and outdoor spaces, recreating the traditional Chinese courtyard space on a hillside site. This is part of the author’s experiment to localize Modern Architecture.

Gable Again House in Champaign, Illinois by Jeffery S. Poss, Architect

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

Article source: Jeffery S. Poss, Architect

A well-proportioned 1957 gabled house was constructed on the north edge of a small park.  While the southern view of maturing park trees visible through the glazed gable end is delightful, an owner of dubious taste in the 1970s constructed a curiously awful Mansard carbuncle-of-an-addition to its west.

House at Matsubara, Setagaya ward, Tokyo by atelier HAKO architects

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

Article source: atelier HAKO architects

This house sits at the tiny corner lot, while facing the tree-lined ginkgo.

Around this dwelling area of the small city block and the narrow road, the human scale that offers friendly atmosphere to the pedestrian from the old days is kept, also thanks to the tree-lined ginkgo.

DRIFTING ART LAND in London, UNITED-KINGDOM by HOLDUP Architecture

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

Article source: HOLDUP Architecture

Hard to assess in urban term, the river claims the birth of the city while staying detached from it by its particular identity: ubiquitous as a spine, yet barely passable by inhabitants. Inserted in the Thames, undefined as a plot (central but distant), the drifting island embodies a favored observatory by proposing an alternative reality of London. Visitors are given the chance to experience and sense water in an elaborated architecture that merges and exchanges with its environment, like any living organism would unassumingly do.

Mar y Tierra in Hyogo, Japan by DOYLE COLLECTION CO. LTD.

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

Article source: DOYLE COLLECTION CO. LTD.

Mar y Tierra is a restaurant that provides Spanish cuisine and wine. It stands at the end of the back alley with high level visibility.

Spanish buildings’ usage change with lapse of time. And you can see this from the appearance of the buildings’ exterior or as a total. There are many interesting building examples where the old and the new coexist well. This time, we were inspired by this present Spain, when designing Mar y Tierra.

Tang House in Carlton, Melbourne, Australia by 4site architecture

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

Article source: 4site architecture

The client of this single fronted double brick terrace house in Carlton wanted to find an intelligent architectural response that would breath life into a dark and pokey dwelling.

The existing property is typical of Victorian terrace houses with a hallway and front two rooms configuration, then a poorly planned series of gloomy, dysfunctional lean-to additions, poor access to natural light and no direct connection to the rear yard. We responded to the client’s brief by retaining the original two bedrooms at the front, with a proposed double storey addition including bathroom, laundry, living, kitchen, dining area and an additional bedroom with en suite.
