The house is located in the middle of a rural village with many small houses. There is a wide view to the south, and calm mountains to the north. The house, placed in a peaceful rural landscape, does not show itself off, but is a simple for that melts into the slow scenery.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe house consists of a main building with a gable and a second building with a flat roof, and is spread out comfortably on wide land. Unlike the very simple appearance of the house, the yard is divided according to different uses. It has different characteristics according to the characteristics of the interior space. The yard that touches the living room and dining room become one with the living room, making it like a second outdoor living room. The yard in between rooms is like a room itself, closed off from the outside. The moss yard of the second building is also cut off from the outside and is a place of quiet thinking, and the deck between the two buildings is an open yard with a view that looks out far away.Save this picture!© Youngchea PARKThe yard in front of the house is an external space that looks at the faraway scenery with a background of trees and grass, but the yard between the rooms has a wooden deck and small flowering plants, making it an internal living space. You can experience the outside and inside yard simultaneously.Save this picture!© Youngchea PARKThe finishing of the outside of the house uses narrow and long bricks in a dark brown color that goes well with the scenery from autumn to spring, with zinc panels with narrow grooves on top.

This weekend house in São Paulo was designed for a couple with young children. The architectural style is very clear: organized in a square layout, the outer perimeter is enclosed by circular metal pillars that support the generous overhang and cover the balcony, and mark the inner courtyard of the same format that occupies the central position.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiThus, the house has two facades, one outside and one inside, as well as two circulation galleries, one of them is the balcony and the other, the gallery that surrounds the courtyard.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemText description provided by the architects. The decision to build a home, the idea of creating one’s own domestic experience in ways that are different from those of living in collective accommodations or in urban settings, generates a set of aspirations, suggestions, needs. Our task is to translate these instances into a project that, at least in part, would summarize them. The aspiration and the goal is to improve our daily lives, increasing comfort and the quality of space.Save this picture!© Gianni Basso / vegamgThe most difficult part of the process is when, as in this case, the place is a lot of alienating land surrounded by buildings that are simply ugly, that are neither part of the tradition nor of a thought-through present. It is impossible, therefore, to find interesting relationships with a context devoid of identity, on which to build an idea.Save this picture!© Gianni Basso / vegamgThe risk one can run is to think of a self-referential object that finds its reason of being in the beautiful sign, without answering to those instances of quality of life that underlie the very choice of building a house. Save this picture!© Gianni Basso / vegamgFrom these reflections, a project has been developed, a project that finds within itself a reconstructed nature, with which one can establish those relationships denied by a disarming urban context. A choice of self-sufficiency, which has its roots in the Roman house and that puts will at the center of the project, along with research, the need for quality of life in connection with an idea of ​​nature.Save this picture!© Gianni Basso / vegamgThe result is a dilated project that widens in order to internally generate the voids that are to be invented to replace an absent place.Save this picture!© Gianni Basso / vegamgOur choice is to provide the roof of the building with functions that are normally placed on the ground. So, the roof is seen as a garden, with relational spaces organized in separate areas: one devoted to the swimming pool and the sunroof, and one devoted to food and conviviality. Among these areas in the central atrium, there is the place for a strawberry tree whose foliage dominates the void at the center of the project.Save this picture!Section 2The attics of the high sections completely hide the renewable energy production plants. Each space, thus, is occupied by a sequence which, from the entrance, follows a vertical path. The entire tale is designed to slowly discover the mechanics of the spaces that follow the alternation of external and internal. What can be distinguished from the outside can only be fully comprehended by following the light that, by entering, reveals the empty spaces, in a crescendo that culminates with the light coming from the corten lantern in the front facade.Save this picture!© Gianni Basso / vegamgThe spatial succession of the Roman house is vertically translated, in an organism that, as in the tradition, places the impluvium at the center of the composition. The kitchen and the living room overlook a garden built inside the building itself, with maples, convallaria and a stream of running water, a real natural enclosure, a precious garden, the setting of contemporary daily lives.Save this picture!© Gianni Basso / vegamgThe materials describe the gaps that the project generates. In this way, wood, stone, corten, water and vegetation give voice to the need to relate to spaces designed as an extension of the house itself. The main structure, in masonry and concrete, delineates the volumes, while steel builds the gaps and crowns the construction, measuring and uniting the composition. All the floors and wall coverings, both interior and exterior, are in natural stone, with the exception of the wood chosen for the flooring of the terraces and of the sunroof.Save this picture!© Gianni Basso / vegamgThe technical and technological contents of the building, which reaches energy class A +, are geared towards sustainable choices.Save this picture!© Gianni Basso / vegamgProject gallerySee allShow lessEuralille 2 / Brenac & Gonzalez & AssociésSelected ProjectsStorefront Presents “MEASURE”Event Share “COPY” Area:  463 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project House B / Unostudio Architetti associati Save this picture!© Gianni Basso / vegamg+ 42 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/771007/house-b-unostudio-architetti-associati Clipboard Architects: Unostudio Architetti associati Area Area of this architecture projectcenter_img Projects Year:  CopyHouses•Mantua, Italy Photographs:  Gianni Basso / vegamg Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project House B / Unostudio Architetti associatiSave this projectSaveHouse B / Unostudio Architetti associati ArchDaily Houses Photographs CopyAbout this officeUnostudio Architetti associatiOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMantuaItalyPublished on August 01, 2015Cite: “House B / Unostudio Architetti associati” 31 Jul 2015.

Bathyard home is an energetically rehabilitated, 130m2 residential apartment in a building dating from 1900 for a woman, her family and her plants. After several years of living in the suburbs with her sons, who have now grown up and are about to leave home, she decided to return to a central location in Madrid. She dreamed of having a spacious bathroom, the possibility of bringing with her some of the plants she had had in her former house, and a living room where she could share, among other things, long cinema and TV sessions together with her sons. Save this picture!© Imagen Subliminal (Miguel de Guzmán + Rocío Romero)Before rehabilitation, the apartment was energy-inefficient and dark, almost completely facing north and west, with the exception of one window that gave onto an interior patio. The latter was the only one facing south, the most favorable orientation climatically, but it was wasted on a corridor and storage area.

Save this picture!© Imagen Subliminal (Miguel de Guzmán + Rocío Romero)The original apartment was transformed by introducing a few changes in the partition walls while maintaining the original structure intact. With simple modifications, the project reoriented a large part of the house to the south. This was achieved by creating a new type of domestic interior: a bathyard, a space that generates a new “exterior” inside the apartment and lends passive thermal and light comfort to the entire home. The bathyard is a space whose character can be negotiated and altered by the users by sliding transparent partitions and opening out a folding bench. It is a place where different activities can overlap and be shared, such as trying on clothes, enjoying breakfast, or having a conversation while one is taking a bath and the other is sitting on the folding bench. And of course, it can also be the setting of a glorious solitary bath experience.Save this picture!© Imagen Subliminal (Miguel de Guzmán + Rocío Romero)

Between the bathtub space and a more private room with shower and toilet, facing the south window, there is a small greenhouse, equipped with a drip irrigation system, which accommodates different types of ferns, rubber plants, philodendrons and marantas, among others. It is the only space in the flat where underfloor heating was not installed, in order to prevent drying out the atmosphere of the garden. Instead, the garden is heated by its contact with the other spaces in the apartment and by direct exposure to sunlight through the window.Save this picture!© Imagen Subliminal (Miguel de Guzmán + Rocío Romero)

Its strategic location between two humid spaces – the shower and bathtub rooms – contributes to a more humid environment for the vegetation. The central position of this space within the flat facilitates cross-ventilation and the enjoyment of a new landscape facing south. The new bathyard distribution and the insulation of the facade walls, floor slabs and ceilings help to maintain the apartment at 18°C to 20°C in most winter days without switching on the newly installed underfloor heating system.

The wooden-framed, movable partitions have different degrees of transparency: some have semi-reflective screens, which are strategically positioned with surprising effects, for instance reflecting the sunlight towards the master bedroom in the morning. You can also see the reflected images of the bathtub among the plants at different angles from the living space through an oculus.

Save this picture!© Imagen Subliminal (Miguel de Guzmán + Rocío Romero)The construction of this oculus, making use of a preexisting hole in the load-bearing wall that once formed part of cabinet, connects the bathyard with the living and dining spaces visually and climatically. A curtain, and a screen on the circular window control airflow and light, help to adjust the atmosphere in the living room and adapt it to spending time watching films and TV, depending on the wishes of the mother and her sons, thus connecting or separating the different social spaces in the house.Save this picture!Floor planProject gallerySee allShow lessFinnish Nature Center Haltia / Lahdelma & MahlamäkiSelected ProjectsSchool with an Open Space / Beijing Institute of Architectural Design 6th DivisionSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Madrid, Madrid, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

The naturalness, monolithic quality, cost, availability in different formats, and wear-worthiness of the stone led to its choice as the best defense against the harsh humidity and fierce rain that affects this region. Kotah stone is used in several forms, from fine chips, to strips, to slabs, to solid cove cut skirtings.

Located in the neighborhood of Jayanagar, Bangalore the site measured around 2400sq ft where the road is along the northern edge of the site. The clients were a business family consisting of parents and two daughters.Save this picture!© Anand JajuThe client’s strong belief in the ancient doctrine of vaastu played a crucial role in the planning and the spatial organizations.Working with the family the program for the 3 bed room house was appropriated to around 3000 sqft. It comprised of three bedrooms along with living , dining, kitchen and the multipurpose room distributed across two levels in a block with a foot print of around 1500 sft..The two story block was organized more towards the southwestern region to create a linear open space along the eastern edge.it comprised of a parking space which could double up as outdoor gathering and also a garden. The set back spaces along the other three sides was also seen as extensions of the internal spaces housing the greens as well as utilitarian spaces.Save this picture!DiagramOpen aspect of the design relates to their community way of life where extended family is supported and is included in much of their rituals and daily life. Pooja room is a critical part of this culture and was seen as a sub-volume located between the living and dining. This also helped in integrating the entertainment console as a part of the sculptural ensemble of the Pooja room. The stairs to the upper level is organized along the western edge and is also expressed as a sculptural mass integrating with the furniture of the living space lending a theatrical quality to the space. The stairs lead to a large multipurpose family space at the first level, this space is flanked by the bedrooms of thetwo daughters. The stairs to the terrace is mirrored over the lower stairs creating a column of vertical double height space linking the two levels. Natural Light cutting through linear strip of sky light along the western edge animates this volume. The illuminated surface is visible from the ground suggesting subtly the continuum of the spaces to upper private spaces.the terrace also provides space for gathering and also housing utilities.Save this picture!© Anand JajuThe resulting form basically cuboid owing to the geometry maintains a quiet but a stoic presence on the street, reinforcing the notion of a refuge from the busyness of the city. The east facing surface of the volume is expressed as detaching itself from the main body in an attempt to redirect connection towards the eastern stretch of open space rather than the road in front. The fracture or the separation facilitates entry into the house and also allows for the creation of the skylight animating the the multipurpose room and the toilets at the upper level.Save this picture!© Anand JajuThe idea of refuge fueled the idea of cast concrete structure with the material adding to tactile quality of space.strategically this concrete armature is punctuated with softer plastered masonry, wood surfaces, windows and openings hidden behind timber screens, lending privacy and also controlling the amount of light. Day light coming through the various apertures of this layered envelope is seen as a crucial factor animating the interior spaces and surfaces. Landscape is seen as a vital part of this layering system. Here green walls help in defining envelopes where it adds to the humane experience intended.Save this picture!© Anand JajuProject gallerySee allShow lessRIBA Announces 2016 Stirling Prize ShortlistArchitecture NewsSelf-build Shinto Shrine / Kikuma WatanabeSelected Projects Share India CopyAbout this officeArchitecture ParadigmOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBengaluruIndiaPublished on July 14, 2016Cite: “Badri Residence / Architecture Paradigm” 13 Jul 2016.

Hualle House is a 230m2 family home located in the southern Araucania region of Chile, renowned for its natural beauty. Save this picture!© Felipe FontecillaPlace ResponseThe house sits on the central brow of the land, taking advantage of the aspect afforded on all sides by this elevated position. Approaching by road the house appears as a prominent simple black form on the hillside, reminiscent of large agricultural pitched-roof sheds found in the area. Save this picture!Cortesía de Ampuero YutronicSitting on a gently sloping site in the rural foothills of the Villarrica volcano and the lake below, the house embraces this natural environment and the outstanding views afforded by its privileged setting. The two-storey building form and orientation is a response to this sloping terrain of the land and the microclimate of the area. Save this picture!© Felipe FontecillaBuilding FormInitially conceived as a simple rectangular volume, the design evolved through a series of manipulations and interventions to create the more sculptural form of the building:1.Extending the building footprint on the south side, creating an irregular floor plan and volume;2.Cut-out in the volume to signify the entrance; 3.Recess to the north facing glazing at ground level;4.Roof geometry transformed into a series of folding planes.Save this picture!Cross SectionSave this picture!Volumetric DiagramSave this picture!Longitudinal SectionMaterial and Construction ElementsThe house is clad in vertical dark-stained softwood slats to resemble some of the buildings in the area that are clad in the black volcanic stone of the region. Dictated by the internal views to the outside landscape, the windows vary in size and position, creating a seemingly random composition on the building exterior.Save this picture!© Felipe FontecillaIn contrast to the dark exterior, the interior walls are lined in pale, almost white, stained plywood. The warmer color of the natural wood surrounds of the windows, which line the entire depth of the wall, punctuate this interior blank canvas acting as picture frames to the outside views. Emulating the folding geometry of the roof structure, the ceiling flows sinuously for the entire length of the interior. Exposed concrete floors, incorporating black volcanic aggregate, contrast with the pale walls and ceiling.Save this picture!© Felipe FontecillaInterior ArrangementThe accommodation of the house is arranged simply around a central double height volume. This central space is orientated on a north-south axis with large glazed openings exploiting the views of the volcano and the lake. The north glazing, a series of opening metal-framed sliding doors, takes advantage of the low winter sun entering deep into the space, which is otherwise protected during the summer months by the external overhang of the building. This central space is the social heart of the home, accommodating the kitchen, dining and living space at ground level. Two separate guest bedrooms and bathrooms are located at ground level to either side of this space on the east and the west sides of the house. The master bedroom and bathroom on the first floor is accessed by stair via the studio, library and gallery walkway that overlook the main central space. Save this picture!© Felipe FontecillaSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Felipe FontecillaSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Felipe FontecillaSustainability/Energy StrategyDue to its remote location the house seeks to be as environmentally self-sufficient as possible. This is achieved by a series of passive measures and interventions;-building orientation and highly insulated exterior (beyond regulatory requirements);-window sizes & positions that maximise or minimise solar gain where beneficial;-utilising the thermal mass of the interior exposed concrete surfaces to regulate the internal temperature; -heating primarily provided by a wood burning stove located in the heart of the house. This stove incorporates a unique filtration system which aims to minimize smoke being released into the external environment.Save this picture!© Felipe FontecillaProject gallerySee allShow lessNepal’s “Vertical University” Will Include 6 Campuses In 5 Climatic Zones to Teach A…ArticlesLemay, Perkins+Will, and Bisson Fortin to Design Montreal Light Rail SystemArchitecture News Share Chile Hualle House / Ampuero YutronicSave this projectSaveHualle House / Ampuero Yutronic Photographs Hualle House / Ampuero Yutronic ArchDaily Area:  230 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/893718/hualle-house-ampuero-yutronic Clipboardlast_img read more

The Toorak Residence by Architecton is a contemporary residential architecture project located in Melbourne’s affluent inner city suburb of Toorak.Save this picture!© Jack LovelThis four bedroom private residence rigorously pursues a balance of elegance and relaxation. The formal refinement and spatial fluidity propel the living spaces to the height of luxury and repose. An urban oasis in the heart of Melbourne’s most prestigious address.Save this picture!© Jack LovelThe client’s brief was for a minimal yet welcoming home with fun, quirky elements. The architectural design needed to ensure to creation of a beautifully striking residential address. Architecton approached this project with a strong belief that the design needed to generate a dwelling with drama and excitement through the use of scale, volume, elegant materials and clever design solutions.Save this picture!© Jack LovelThe Toorak Residence maximizes the potential of the site whilst remaining sensitive to the existing streetscape and the socio-economic character of the affluent Melbourne suburb.Save this picture!© Jack LovelThe outdoor area was designed to accommodate a large pool that fits beautifully into the marble tiling. The use of outdoor greenery and an all white colour palate gives the outdoor space the impression of an exotic oasis located in inner-city Melbourne.Save this picture!© Jack LovelThis architectural gem is defined by a free-flowing living space. Shades of concrete, wood and metal clash magnificently within this room providing it with an overall sense of grandeur.Save this picture!© Jack LovelWhile Architecton have created a clear differentiation of living space, with several distinct zones, the open plan nature of the design allows these spaces to link and the visual generosity of the entire space is revealed. The controlled monochromatic palette for the interior decoration throughout ensures that there are no jarring visuals and that the eye can move seamlessly across the space.The kitchen / entertaining area is dominated by a stunning fire place that becomes the centerpiece of the impressive room. A large dining table and lounge area allows the clients to comfortably cater for large groups of friends.Save this picture!© Jack LovelGlowing Structures were commissioned to design the bespoke lighting installation that needed to be fully integrated into the interior design to ensure a seamless yet striking installation.Natural timbers and stone culminate in a series of concrete and glass volumes that create free-flowing spaces providing easily interchangeable areas for family living as well as formal celebrations.Save this picture!© Jack LovelThe architecture juxtaposes ideas of solidity and intimacy, with lightness and extroversion. Ultimately the Toorak Residence is an exploration into the use of concrete and how to design within a large residential space. The home uses and enormous degree of architectural transparency the mediate the unpredictable Australian climate.Save this picture!© Jack LovelProject gallerySee allShow lessITAFE Coffee & Drinking Store / daylab studioSelected ProjectsMicrosoft Envisioning Center / Studio O+ASelected Projects Sharelast_img read more
