Casa Itaipava in Brazil by Mariana Camara Martini

Thursday, May 21st, 2020

Article source: Mariana Camara Martini

In Itaipava, our aim was to create a cozy and elegant environment, which should be mainly functional. We used natural materials such as local wood and simple materials like cement to contrast hard styles like the black metal and brass. The house should be easy to understand its spaces even though it has 550 square meters. The guests rooms are exactly the same so there is no distinction. The Master bedroom has a private balcony with closet and suite with bathtub.

Part I Introduction: housing role and its individual ecosystem

Living amidst the rapid growth of urban population and high rises in Bangkok, a critical question is raised: how can we adjust ourselves to live peacefully and privately in this speedily changed environment? In doing so, how can we avoid losing contact with the amenities that megacity provides us and accessibility to the greenspace? A Bangkok-based well known architectural firm, Ayutt and Associates design (AAd) proposes an alternative design solution to mitigate this urban-dwelling problematic issue by crafting a Shade House, a self-sustainable residence, implanted with an individual natural ecosystem that planned to become a part of a larger urban ecology and a solution for next generation of housing. Principally, AAd targets the issue by lessening the superior role of the house, though increasing the importance of natural surrounding as the main protagonist of this project.

The stunning Villa Verte in Cape Town, South Africa by Maison Noir

When Jim Brett and Ed Gray decided to launch a sister property to their exclusive-use Villa Maison Noir in Hout Bay, Cape Town, it was with the intention of creating yet another sanctuary-like space that was inspired and informed by the natural beauty of the bordering Oudekraal Nature Reserve and surrounding areas. To bring this vision to fruition, the couple earmarked a plot of land right next door to Villa Maison Noir and dreamed of replacing the drab 1970s-style building housed on the site with something much more memorable.

Kite House in Wiltshire by AR Design Studio

Plans for a private bespoke new build house have been submitted for planning by RIBA award winning architects AR Design Studio.

The scheme replaces an existing house and annex on the site, providing a contemporary 4-bed dwelling that responds to both the client’s requirements and the challenging site constraints.

Set amongst a verdant backdrop and overlooking the River Avon, the site offered great potential with inspiration being taken from the natural topography of the site, the river and the long distance views. To the North-West across the floodplain, Salisbury Cathedral’s spire can be spotted and the South-West aspect affords a far reaching outlook across the water meadows and down the river.
