Villa in Which Natural Light is a Constant Element on Each of its Spaces

By • Apr 6, 2018

This villa, with an area of 142 square meters and whose purpose was to be used as a space to share with friends and family in a relaxed atmosphere, is located in Iran. It was redesigned in 2015 by the architectural firm ZAV Architects under the leadership of Mohamadreza Ghodousi, Fateme Rezaie Fakhr-e-Astane and Soroosh Majidi.

External view of the construction

The project was defined with some main strategies: rehabilitate the villa with technology and local workforce while also maintaining the existing structure, integrate the open and closed spaces as much as possible, with the flow of air from the garden to the most intimate spaces of the villa. Apart from all this, it was important to incorporate shades and colors into the geometry of the villa.

The interior of the villa was designed entirely in white, imitating the sensations of a temple that reinterprets some of the Iranian architectural principles.

The building consists of three interrelated spaces on two levels. The entrance on the north side of the villa leads to an open space full of light and shadows.

The ground floor rises through a staircase to the space where there are two wide steps that function as resting platforms, on which one can lie down and spend some time relaxing.

Imposing Concrete Construction Surrounded by Thick Green Vegetation

By • Apr 5, 2018

This imposing construction of high concrete walls has been designed by the architect Cherng Yih Lee, who works for the architectural firm FORMZERO, in the city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The home was completed in the year 2017 and covers an extensive area of 900 square meters, distributed across its three levels.

It is located right on the edge of a reserved forest, perfect for those who like to enjoy the outdoors and nature. However, one of the points on which its designers focused was avoiding, at all costs, that the existing windows became the most direct element with which to define the relationship with the outdoor space. When a house is surrounded by other houses, the relationship is immediately blurred by dropping a curtain. The question was … How to restore that relationship with the outer space without compromising the necessary privacy inside?

From east to west, this house is wrapped in an additional layer consisting of a wall of perforated concrete that looks like a shell. In addition to acting as a thermal protection with cross ventilation, the carapace is the first layer to control privacy. Between the house and the concrete framework, several levels of landscape are inserted to create an ambiguous condition that makes the landscape look more like an interior space.

By • Apr 4, 2018

This 1,500 square foot multipurpose barn project in Ancram, New York, USA, was completed in 2017 by the architecture firm Worrell Yeung Architecture, under the direction of its architecture professionals Max Worrell and Jejon Yeung.

The space is located on the side of a 30-acre property, with an existing traditional house and other structures. This modern barn adopts an unmistakably contemporary design approach, while incorporating elements of the Hudson Valley agrarian lifestyle. The general shape of the building is clean and simple, and its volume is a single and discreet structure of gable roof that sits on the hillside. The retaining walls create a playground between the barn and the house.

Remodeling a Small Apartment That is 21 Years Old

By • Apr 4, 2018

This functional and modern apartment is located in a residential building that is 21 years old and is located in the central section of the city of Chongqing, China. The space, recently remodeled in 2018, has an area of 71 square meters. Jin Xue, from the interior design firm Xue Jin Architecture Network, was in charge of its design.

Shared living and study area

This construction, respectfully built on a mountain, is a typical local residence. For the past two decades, it was home to a couple and their only child. Now, it is owned by a young couple who, dissatisfied with the original design, lighting, and ventilation, decided to carry out the remodeling to create a more pleasant, comfortable, and functional space that could satisfy their needs.

For the reconstruction of the apartment, it was important to focus on the kitchen and the bathroom. The owner wanted to have a more luminous and spacious kitchen, to cook every day and enjoy the preparation of meals with friends. Whereas with the bathroom, the owner wanted to have a relatively independent bathroom with a bathtub.

It has two relatively private rooms, and a shared open space that, thanks to its flexibility, can serve various functions. The open space was designed to bring the occupants closer to each other while performing daily activities.

Elegant, Safe and Comfortable Apartment with a Marked Industrial Style

By • Apr 3, 2018

Once couples become parents, they start to think about how they can add open areas within the home that will contribute to their children’s development. This couple wanted to make sure that the living room has many storage areas. After extensive discussions, they decided to move away from a conventional design and reconsider the entire structure of the living room.

Study area in the living room

The design was under the leadership of the designer Ivan Chen of the Studio of Interior Design HAO Design in the year 2017, and it is located in the city of Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Creating an ideal home involves more than simply building a safe and comfortable space for children to grow up. It is also important to preserve its own aesthetic sensibility, taste and lifestyle preferences.

Each aspect of the studio reflects the love for industrial style design, which blends beautifully with the wooden floors used for the common areas of the house to generate an air of classic elegance. The wood grain pattern extends to the living room, where the visitor’s eye is immediately captured by the leather sofa.

Moving from the main living room to the master bedroom, the general feeling is of tranquility and relaxation, with a use of shades of blue that represents a continuation of the classic style of the main living room. The child’s room has its own size-adjusted door, an innovative feature that is fun at the same time.

Modern Villa Surrounded by Mountains and Blue Skies

By • Apr 2, 2018

Brunhais House is a private residence designed by Rui Vieira Oliveira, a Portuguese architectural firm with offices in Guimarães, Portugal and Naples, Italy. It is located in Póvoa de Lanhoso, a parish of Brunhais, a small village surrounded by mountains and characterized by good weather and clear blue skies, itself located in the north of Portugal. The project was begun in 2011 and completed in 2016.

Modern villa in geometric shapes

The house is part of a set of three different projects belonging to three brothers. The intention was to create a structure that could host a couple and support the activity of the family business. The adaptation of the building to the slightly uneven terrain allows for two volumes to overlap, thus allowing the demarcation of these two separate functions. The white structure holds the living quarters, while the gray one is made of a natural stone, and denotes a more functional purpose.

The interior of the buildings is stark white, which creates a strong contrast against the clear blue skies, as well as reflect the light of the strongly shining sun, easing the illumination of the entire structure. Clear glass walls allow this same light to flow into the interior, rendering artificial light virtually unnecessary.

Cabin for Ski Lovers in one of the Most Popular Areas of Norway

By • Mar 30, 2018

In Sjusjøen, one of Norway’s most popular areas for skiing, this fabulous cabin is located, has 133 square meters and the project was carried out in 2017 by the architecture firm Aslak Haanshuus Arkitekter. It is a fast and concentrated development of cabins, tilted to the west with views of the Gudbrandsdalen valley and strong winds from the north. This makes it important to try to protect yourself from the wind and establish private spaces near the building.

View of the cabin bathed by white snow

The cabin is built with prefabricated solid wood elements, visible on the interior walls and ceiling. The walls and the exterior ceilings are covered with charred wood panels, which makes the cabin stand out in the white winter landscape.

The plan is solved within a strict geometric concept. 12 identical triangles make up the shape of the cabin, and the levels and interior rooms are organized within the geometry. Along with the minimal details, this gives the building a dynamic and clear presence. The continuous windows connect all the rooms with the view of the valley. The larger windows are next to a covered terrace, inside the kitchen and the living room, and through the hall where the rooms are located.

Wonderful Duplex on a Colorful Beach Promenade in California, USA

By • Mar 29, 2018

This wonderful design fuses the desires of both parties: discrepant desires that obviously, at some point, crossed and managed to reach the perfect balance to please and meet the needs and expectations of both. This challenging task was under the direction of the architectural firm Modal Design, in 2016, who managed to create an environment full of warmth. Modern, and at the same time traditional, it is exposed to the open air and full of life in a space of 3263 square feet.

It is located in the area of Venice, California, USA, an area especially known for its canals and beaches as well as for its colorful promenade by the sea, in a somewhat bohemian residential area.

Garden connected to the interior by glass doors

Two outdoor gardens were carved from the building’s mass, each programmed for individual activities and needs, such as eating, relaxing and dining, and responding to the path of the sun. A private patio near the street takes advantage of the morning sun and a grassy lawn for the owner’s dogs, while a more public patio in the back encompasses the afternoon sun and proximity to a covered patio for dining outdoors. This subsequent public space is shared between the upper and lower units and allows physical and visual interaction between landlords and their tenants.

A House Full of Silence and Surrounded by Nature

By • Mar 28, 2018

This house has been built with the express desire to live in a serene place, full of peace and silence, as well as a place where nature would be able to show its greatness. This led them to identify a place in the sector of Ricaurte in Cuenca, Ecuador, an almost intact site that, in the mornings, is stripped of its characteristic mountain mist. Said mist floats on the inclined territory, guiding our gaze upwards towards the top of the trees, mountains, and clouds.

The architectural firm Ruptura Morlaca Arquitectura was commissioned in 2017 to carry out this singular and special project by the hand of its professionals Paul Chango and Carolina Bravo. It is located in the city of Cuenca, Ecuador, and has an area of 200 square meters.

Front view with mountains in background

Working with the slope of the site allowed them to observe the architecture as another element of the natural landscape. In a way, it became an extension of the mountain that adapted to every inch of its topography while simultaneously charting its own course. Thus, it became an artificial component of the mountain itself. You could even venture to say that geography was created here, and not architecture.

Remodeling a Space in an Urban Area of Beijing, China

By • Mar 28, 2018

This project is located in an urban area of the west area of Ciqikou Street, a semi-chaotic area that could be described as a poor neighborhood, which is a typical urban form in the Hutong areas nowadays in the city of Beijing, China. The new structure is a building within the original wall, which has been strengthened.

In addition, the reinforced concrete roof is stable enough for the additional weight of the people that are going to be occupying that space. Open views and lots of sunlight come together to create a pleasant space. The project, of only 28 square meters, was led by architectural firm Chaoffice, and in particular, by its architect Zhi Cheng.

The home is characterized by a set of hidden storage compartments, largely under the bed or the table. According to the plan, the functions within the house have been compressed into two defined spaces, leaving the center completely free of the chaos that prevails elsewhere in the house. This has provided a sense of dignity for those who use the space, as well as a sense of comfort.
The space can also be seen as a sequence, the home subdivided into two spaces composed entirely of functional aspects, as well as spaces defined by clarity.
