R+P House by ADI Arquitectura y Diseño Interior

The R+P House is a stunning contemporary residence designed by the Mexico-based studio ADI Arquitectura y Diseño InteriorThis two-story residence is located in the city of Aguascalientes in Mexico and it boasts 3,767 square feet of living space for its residents. It is designed for a 5-member family where 3 members are beloved pets.
The exterior design is dictated by the irregular fan-shaped land, oriented south to north. Its minimalist, contemporary look sets it apart from the rest of the homes in the area.

R+P House by ADI Arquitectura y Diseño Interior in Aguascalientes City, Mexico

Located in a residential area in the northern part of Aguascalientes city, R+P house is developed for a family of 5, where 3 of them are pets.

In an irregular fan shaped land and with a south-north orientation. The architectonic program is resolved in two floors.

Given the land characteristics and based on the customer’s requirements of having ortogonal spaces, this project is conceptualized as two prismatic volumes aligned with the colindancias laterales and connected by the vestibule that resolves the circulaciones.

On the first floor we can find the social areas: garage, kitchen, living room, dining room and Talita, Hanna and Job’s bedroom that has a direct access to the garden terrace.

On the first level, the master bedroom, studio, laundry room and TV room.

The master bedroom and terrace have a view of the back garden, opening a space between the garage’s volume to give it a south orientation.

The main vestibule is the articulator axis of the whole project, connecting both prismas, all the rooms are connected through a double height space and a bridge that unites the upper floor.

The material selection was determined by its practicality and ease of cleaning, in a house where pets are a member of the family.

House in Ranzo by Wespi de Meuron

Wespi de Meuron is an architecture studio that we’ve stumbled upon before. In particular, we’ve featured their Concrete House and House in Brissago projects on our site.
Today, we’ve got another one of their contemporary homes to feature on our site. The House in Ranzo is a minimal interpretation of local, historical references into a contemporary dwelling. It is a compact 1,367 square foot home covered in traditional natural gray plaster with a pergola and courtyard walls that form a Mediterranean character.

House in Ranzo by Wespi de Meuron in Ranzo, Switzerland

The project works with references to the historical architectural culture of the place and interprets them anew.

The traditional natural grey plaster of the façade associated with the simple cube of the modern house detracts itself from a precise temporal assignment.

This house is closely linked to the historical paths from the lake to the village. The terrace with a mountainside courtyard wall, a long bench and natural stone paving has Mediterranean character. The pergola place on the old barn is directly connected with a steep staircase to the house and forms a counterpoint to the new building

Bolton Residence by Naturehumaine in Quebec, Canada

Architects: Naturehumaine
Location: East Bolton, Quebec, Canada
Area: 1,500 sqft

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || ).push({});

Bolton Residence by Naturehumaine

Naturehumaine have designed the Bolton Residence in the Quebec municipality of East Bolton. This simplistic 1,500 square feet Canadian home is elevated above a rock located on a rugged hillside. The two-story family residence consists of two structures stacked upon one another, where the lower story is a concrete block partially built into the slope.

Bolton Residence by Naturehumaine in Quebec, Canada

Having bought a beautiful plot of wooded land in Quebec’s Eastern Townships, the client dreamt of building a country house that would be in perfect symbiosis with its natural environment. This rugged, sloped site came to a natural plateau just below its highest point, becoming the perfect location to erect the house.

The house is characterized by two stacked volumes; a wooden clad volume anchored into the mountain supports a cantilevering ground floor volume above. This gable roofed volume raised into the air gives the sensation that the house is floating amongst the trees. Vast views of Mount Orford and the valley below are framed by a long horizontal strip window. The kitchen and master bathroom are carved out of a black volume at the center of the house dividing living spaces from the master bedroom.

Villa SAH by Andrea Pelati Architecte

Andrea Pelati Architecte – a Swiss studio, is responsible for the stunning contemporary design of the three-story Villa SAH that is located near  Neuchâtel’s center.
The 2,282 square feet home is surrounded by large homes, therefore its design concentrates it in a compact volume, looking for its light source vertically, rather than horizontally.

Villa SAH by Andrea Pelati Architecte in Neuchâtel, Switzerland

The villa is located near the centre of Neuchâtel, Switzerland. It settles on a small plot surrounded by quite massive houses. Therefore, the house is concentrated in a compact volume, seeking for openings and light vertically. It develops over three levels, the highest and brightest of which are hosted the living room, dining room, kitchen and terrace.

In respect to the occupants’ privacy, the North façade displays a shield to the street whereas the South façade opens on to beautiful framed views of the city, lake and Alps.

The layout was designed to allow light to flow in through all three levels, thanks to high ceilings, over lapping spaces and skylights.

Sleeping areas are set on the intermediate level focusing on intimacy, whereas the utility rooms lay on the ground floor, taking benefit of a direct access to the garden.

Vitoria-Gasteiz Home by Patxi Cortazar Arquitecto

The Vitoria-Gasteiz Home is a contemporary private residence located in Vitoria-Gasteiz in the Basque Country, Spain. This luxurious dwelling was designed by Patxi Cortazar Arquitecto and it is characterized by a minimal exterior with a white facade with contrasting features.
Its monochrome interior gives it an air of peace and tranquility while also providing its residents with stunning views of the surrounding countryside.

Vitoria Gasteiz Home by Patxi Cortazar Arquitecto in Spain

Single-family home built essentially in the ground floor, leaving at the first floor only a little studio at the double height of the room and a guest room with bathroom.

The plot has a leaning slope towards the direction North South, so that the construction is located at the North of it, leaving as much space as possible in the South direction.

The project of the building obeys to a fragmented architecture, in a composition of several volumes, with flat or leaning roofs, depending on the direction and the spaces they cover.

The elevator, connected to the chimneys, formalizes the highest and slimmest volume for its functional necessities, which stands out by fitting around itself the rest of the volumes.

The building is covered by white limestone and black pre-patinated zinc at the leaning volumes.

The orientation of the day spaces is at midday and the night spaces at the orientation North and East.

The design of the building has been made following eco-design criteria. When writing the project, the environmental aspects have been evaluated and we have defined actions for the achievement of the goals, having checked their compliance afterwards.

The building conditioning is accomplished through a system of geothermal heat pump with a radiant and refreshing floor. It has mechanic ventilation with heat recovery, the gaps have solar protection with different characteristics depending on the orientation, and the materials used have sustainability certificates; most of them are recyclable.

Treldehuset – Summer House by CEBRA in Vejle, Denmark

Project: Summer House – Treldehuset
Architects: CEBRA
Location: Vejle, Denmark
Area: 1,399 sqft

Summer House – Treldehuset by CEBRA

CEBRAa Denmark-based practice renowned for their high level of architectural ambition, were challenged to design a small-scale house. The project called Treldehuset or Summer House in English, goes beyond all expectations.
The compact, modern dwelling takes the idea of a traditional pitched roof house and completely reinvents it, defining an architectural interpretation of the Russian babushka doll. What this means is that the design of the Summer House is effectively a double house, or a house within a house.

Treldehuset   Summer House by CEBRA in Vejle, Denmark

The summer house is located right next to Vejle Fjord on a scenic site with distinctive trees. The view of the fjord, the coastal atmosphere and the nature that encourage an active outdoor life had an important influence on the design. At first glance, the house is traditionally designed with a pitched roof paralleling the long sides of the site and a gable facing the view. However, at a closer look, we are dealing with a kind of double house – a house inside a bigger house. This idea evokes thoughts of the Russian babushka dolls.

The effect of a double house is achieved by placing the thermal envelope beneath and inside a bigger house. In this way, a roofed outdoor area occurs between the thermal envelope, the actual house and the larger shell, which give access to a protected area – a continuation of the interior which allows you, even on rainy summer nights, to eat, grill or maybe clean a newly caught fish. This transitional zone between indoor and outdoor constitutes an interesting space between the characteristic trees with a view of the fjord.

The heated part of the house is divided into two parallel spaces running along the narrow site. To the west, the common rooms of the house, including kitchen, dining area and a living room, are placed corresponding to the widest part of the outdoor area.

The smaller rooms, such as bathroom, utility room and guest room, are placed on the eastern side. All the rooms are regular and private, but the bedroom with a view of the fjord can be opened towards the living room.

The house is covered with dark slate on both roof and facades and is thus experienced as a frame in a single material. This exterior shell is lined with larch and is outlined by aluminium profiles. The interior is characterized by a white finish, concrete and sheathing of larch making a strong connection between the roofed patio and the interior. On warm summer days, the large sliding doors of glass can be pushed aside connecting the living room and the terrace.

Skewed House by Studio Lagom in Surat, India

Project: Skewed House
Architects: Studio Lagom
Location: Surat, India
Area: 11,000 sqft
Photographs by: Photographix

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || ).push({});

Skewed House by Studio Lagom

The Skewed House by Studio Lagom is a contemporary residence located in Surat, India. This 11,000 square feet dwelling boasts a design that makes use of simple aesthetics presented through a minimal material palette. The Skewed House seeks to create a connection to nature, an oasis of serenity in a typical urban location. The idea of the architects was to reverse the structure, but let’s see what they actually had in mind.

Skewed House by Studio Lagom in Surat, India

Simple aesthetics, a minimal material palette and connections to nature are the main drivers of the design of the Skewed House, the architect’s debut through his firm Studio Lagom. The standalone 11,000-square-foot villa seeks to create an oasis of serenity in Surat’s typical urban milieu through a programme that departs from the typical planning of this typology.

The architect reversed the ‘structure on the streetside and garden to the rear’ scheme, by setting the bungalow back, beyond an elevated garden. Rather than a forbidding, fortress-like compound wall, an interesting elevation involving Valsadi teak battens, softened by cascades of creepers, intrigue the passers-by. Beyond this, is a ramp — which takes you directly to the garden — sandwiched between this slatted outer boundary wall and the retaining wall of the home with an intermediary concrete wall.

The idea was to create a journey of sorts, a constricted perambulatory approach that finally ‘releases’ the visitor into the garden. The other access point, which is the ‘normal’ main door, also uses the same strategy of constriction and liberation, via a small entrance lobby that shields the main living space from direct view. The spatial programme of the villa and the zoning of the plot were also dictated by the sudden floods that the city sometimes experiences. The ground level is devoted to ancillary spaces connected to relaxation and unwinding. Atop this lies the sprawl of the living-dining, kitchen, a bedroom and the garden in the front, followed by more bedrooms, up another level.

The Skewed House does away with excess in form and materiality. Elevationally speaking, the façade projects and recedes strategically, with important areas such as the master bedroom being emphasized through cantilevering and material play. Though concrete was the material of choice, white plaster, stone and wood have been used to temper its formidable, institutional demeanor. The architect’s deep interest in photography helped him visualize this project as a series of interconnected vistas, and was also responsible for the ‘skewedness’ of Skewed House. Manifested subtly as elements shifted slightly off the straight line, this was an exercise in creating vistas and perspectives and adding more life to a three-dimensional object.

Studio Lagom

Skewed House by Studio Lagom in Surat, India

The client’s request for connections from top to bottom, skylights, a distinct identity for the worship area, nature, and a play of light and shadow inform the spatial layout. The split-level living-dining area is extensive, with a living part being sunken and the dining elevated. Close to the entrance is the double-height pooja-tower, heralded by a water-spout and set within a waterbody. Opposite the living area is a sunken courtyard with more seating. These pockets of seating, with various configurations, allow people more freedom to use the space as per their choice. An enormous Kalamkari-inspired artwork in subtle grey graces the staircase wall and is one of the design highlights of this space.

The houses established strong connections to nature with the help of suitable fenestration. For instance, the L-shaped glass inset behind the pooja tower invites the surrounding greenery in and connects the interior waterbody with the external lotus pond visually. Similarly, the nine-foot cantilever of the master bedroom is outlined in the glass, to invite slivers of sunlight and the sky into space. Also, the views from the louvered doors and windows on this level are carpeted with the blossoms and the dense shining foliage of the frangipanis in the garden.

Much of the relaxed ambiance of the Skewed House can be attributed to its substantial greenscape, developed Roots Designs. The lawn has a sectional profile (a kund-like sunken central portion) and has been inspired by the ghats of Varanasi and Ujjain. An artistic dimension was added by extending the floor pattern of the gazebo into the kund. For the architect, this house represents the firming up of several convictions: that each building is unique by way of its users, setting, function, and more; that you will deliver quality if you care enough; that there is no substitute for nature; and that architecture can leverage the innate beauty of every material, by creating the right balance between less and more.

Brighton Townhouses by Martin Friedrich Architects in Victoria, Australia

Project: Brighton Townhouses
Architects: Martin Friedrich Architects
Location: Brighton, Victoria, Australia
Area: 5,586 sqft
Photographs by: Derek Swalwell

Brighton Townhouses by Martin Friedrich Architects

The Brighton Townhouses are a project completed by Martin Friedrich Architects in the city of Brighton in Victoria, Australia. Their designs rely on the contemporary home design principles enabling the dwellings to feature spacious living and dining rooms that can extend their area into the courtyards and wrap around pools through sliding doors. Each of the houses spans through three floors, with a spiral staircase to connect them. The interior is blessed with natural light through a large circular skylight.

Brighton Townhouses by Martin Friedrich Architects in Victoria, Australia

The Brighton townhouses address the strong desire to live comfortably, maximizing area on a more compact site. Gone are the days of abundant grounds. Inner Melbourne markets require maximization of the built area and the creation of smaller outdoor spaces that work efficiently, even in some of the more prosperous suburbs. Two large, three-story townhouses including basement each sit comfortably on the site where a single dilapidated house was originally located.

The minimalist contemporary design provides a seamless indoor-outdoor living space with a large fully glazed kitchen/dining/living room opening on the side and rear via full-width sliding doors to the entertainer’s courtyards and glass-tiled pool. The pool wraps around the main indoor-outdoor living areas.

The glazed entry enclosure aligned to view the pool beyond opens onto the sculptural circular staircase, which transcends all three levels, providing pivotal drama to the entrance of the property. The cylindrical form that houses the stairs projects out of the building on the side, finishing this double-height space from the ground with a large circular skylight above that floods the space in natural light.

The design explores a minimalist pallet of materials finished in pure white render. Matching, white metal louvers on the front and rear provide privacy from the neighboring townhouse and break up the simple shapes of stacked cantilevered cuboidal forms. The dark-colored finishes of the otta-colored oak wood flooring, Pietro Grigio marble, and gray mink-colored carpet contrast with the white walls and add warmth and richness. The pure white house is further accentuated by the vivid colors of the artwork.

On the first floor, three generously sized bedrooms enjoy access to private en-suites, walk-in-robes, and balconies. These are connected via a gallery walkway with a continuous skylight running along the length that has been broken up into eight glazed sections with gimbaled lights projecting on paintings below.

The basement houses cinema, cellar, gymnasium, and a five-car garage with turntable.

White Line by Nravil Architects in Almaty, Kazakhstan

Project: White Line

Area: 3,229 sqft

White Line by Nravil Architects

Nravil Architectsa Kazakhstan-based architecture studio, completed its design for the elegant White Line residence that overlooks the cityscape of Almaty, Kazakhstan.
This 3,229 square foot home sits on a nearly flat site, which made the construction a lot easier since only minimal excavations were performed during the process. One of the most unique features of this home is its exterior design which is formed by a concrete frame coated with a smooth white lime plaster.

White Line by Nravil Architects in Almaty, Kazakhstan

We like to make the house as simple as possible and at the same time interesting. The building is located in a landscape of unique beauty. The main goal was to develop the project without harming the natural landscape. The exterior of the house is conceived, that would look different from different sides and due to this you can enjoy the view of a non-repetitive exterior.

Appearance and interior support the same color, emphasizing the severity and unity of the house. Panoramic energy-saving windows from both sides of the house evoke a feeling of complete openness and privacy with nature. The glass has a reflective property from the outside to reflect trees and clouds, so the house merges as much as possible with the surrounding environment. You can go on the balcony in the morning to drink coffee, enjoy a panoramic view of the horizon and fresh air.

The interior of the house is simple. Monochromatic white color in the interior allows to maximize the sense of space and not to strain the person, to feel clean and relax comfortably.

There were minimal excavations at the construction of the house, as the current relief of the site was perfect. The house stands on stilts. The frame of the house is a concrete structure, which is isolated from the outside and then covered with a flexible, smooth white lime plaster.
