Article source: Adrià Escolano and David Steegmann

Living on a terrace. The project is conceived according to the client’s main desire: a house turned towards the exterior. The operation, however, is not so much to open the views to the terrace as in providing the interior with attributes of the exterior, resonances of the landscape of the roofs of the city, often invaded by clothes hanging in the sun.

Phutthamonthon House in Nakornpathom, Thailand by Archimontage Design Fields Sophisticated

Friday, July 20th, 2018

Article source: Archimontage Design Fields Sophisticated

The family’s fundamental requirement for building house and factory in the suburb of Bangkok is to combine these two functional spaces harmoniously. The design for this compatible structure must consider functional space as much as aesthetic quality. It also needs to reflect hierarchical relationship between employer and employee in the factory. This A-shape building has three floors: the ground floor near the main entrance functions as a medium-size garment factory while the second and third floors serve as residential space. The owner provides relaxing corner and recreational space in the residential area. There is also a two-story residential building located on the other side of the land. This building is connected to the A-shape building by a big bedroom on the second floor above the veranda, which fully benefits from natural light and wind. The position of the bedroom also conforms to the traditional belief about stability.

Cabanon in Italian Ligurian Alps, Italy by Officina82

Friday, July 20th, 2018

Article source: Officina82

The little wooden building was designed starting from the detailed study of rural constructions formerly used as barns or foliage sheds next to chestnut groves.

The proportions, the structural system and construction details have been redesigned into a small building annexed to the main house, maintaining a strong link with the rural architecture of the area and thus a coherent landscaping.

The building is located at 1,000 m a.s.l. in the heart of the Italian Ligurian Alps. The large windows on the southern facade open to a wide horizon leading to the French border. An opening on the northern wall, of the width of a chestnut board, reveals the woods at the border.

G’Day House in West Vancouver, Canada by Mcleod Bovell Modern Houses

Thursday, July 19th, 2018

Article source: Mcleod Bovell Modern Houses

The G’Day House is a commission for an Australian ex-patriate family, who requested a home that would support a relaxed attitude toward daily life and would help them re-connect with a warm-weather lifestyle. Column-free sliding doors at the Southeast corner of the house effectively double the size of the living area when open; indoor and outdoor spaces hold equal priority. Materials, form, and spatial relationships are intended to evoke the feel of a beach house: simple, casual and flexible. The dining table and wood-burning fireplace can both be rotated to support a variety of arrangements depending on weather and number of guests.

Suburban House in Buenos Aires, Argentina by BESONÍAS ALMEIDA

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

Article source: BESONÍAS ALMEIDA

The place

This is a plot of land located in a town belonging to the second belt of the Buenos Aires outskirts. This is a traditional area of farmhouses that, after the construction of the Western Highway, is being gradually converted and transformed into a permanent living area. In this semi-rural environment, with very few neighboring buildings, the project had to be conceived without all the information that a well-established neighborhood provides.

BHMM house in Alicante, Spain by Estudio JI Arquitectos

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

Article source: Estudio JI Arquitectos

A house facing the Mediterranean and the River Algar …

The idea is to create a diaphanous but convertible space where moments dedicated to private and public can be regularly available to its owner.

This requires an only centerpiece storage structure that organizes public and private space. The other parts that serve the house (kitchen, toilets, etc …) are “assembled” with the main piece to complete a “mechanism volumes” through which it circulates and whose relationship to each other configures the living spaces (1 bedroom suite, a multifunctional space, living room …).
