Izar Houses in Mexico celebrate the natural landscape, light, and rainfall

On a steep site in Mexico, Izar Houses by Taller ADG Alonso de Garay pay exceptional attention to energy in terms of their approach to natural light and rainfall. Green roofing, use of local stone, and a façade lattice made of specially-treated wooden slats contribute to the integration of house and landscape. Onnis Luque Entry to the houses is located through an access plaza where the inclusion of water and vegetation fosters a sense of connection with the natural environment. Once inside, private areas are located on the lower level with more public and social areas upstairs. A skylight made of locally-sourced stone and vegetation connects the two floors. Onnis Luque The lobby acts as a type of distributing space to he... Más

House Y

Antecedentes El cliente heredó una "McMansion" poco atractiva y mal distribuida. La casa fue diseñada para adaptarse a los gustos de la generación anterior. El lugar también contaba con un gran y pomposo jardín con extensos céspedes cuidados. La casa era demasiado grande y cara de mantener. El cliente quería restaurar la parcela hasta convertirla en un pinar natural y construir una pequeña casa que se integrara perfectamente en el paisaje circundante. Además, el bosque de pinos restaurado hace que el cliente no tenga que cortar el césped. La nueva casa y el jardín fueron diseñados para satisfacer los gustos contemporáneos. Así, este proyecto re...

Residence Freundorf

Se ha construido una residencia monolítica para una joven familia en un pueblo cercano a Viena. En una parcela expuesta en la ladera de una colina, el edificio residencial se sitúa en solitario. El objeto escultural está rodeado por un generoso jardín diseñado por la empresa de jardinería de los propietarios. El amplio jardín se funde con los campos circundantes y el paraje natural. La idea era generar una percepción menos aparente del edificio y de la zona ajardinada. El jardín forma parte de la sala de estar. El cuerpo principal del edificio se compone de dos elementos desplazados mutuamente que siguen la pendiente desde el norte y el sur. Mediante el desplazamiento horizontal... Más

Domaine Pierre Cheval

The site proposes a collection of vernacular architectures : an old chapel, a cellar, steps forming a natural amphitheater, old orchards and terraced gardens. Besides its central position in the village, the place also offers many views on the wine-growing landscape. The whole presented many singular objects, archipelagos, in their natural context. These architectures already had qualities linked to their anchoring to the site, to their history, to their traditional conception, to their hyper materiality. However the link between the architectural elements and their environment existed only partially, the site had suffered of many transformations without consultation, making it lose its link to landscape. Working on memory, our proposal gi... Más

New House - A new way to live

The project was conceived as a study of different alternatives for a refuge residence that at the same time can be replicated in different situations, such as countryside, beach or even in the same urbanized centers. Hence the proposal to make a modular structure in which it is easy to assemble and standardized manufacture, seeking greater precision and generating less waste, this makes our proposal sustainable and less aggressive with the environment. The aim of the project was to propose the primitive shape of the house: open to the landscape. The play of lights and shadows enriches the transformative perception of the house, as volumetry we have a subtle square box that does not interfere with nature and can also integrate with the diff...

Irwin Caplan Midcentury

Originally designed for Irwin Caplan, the illustrator who designed the poster for the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair and cartoonist renowned for his “Famous Last Words” comic strip in The Saturday Evening Post , this mid-century home was both humble and grand–a modest one-story street facade harboring floor-to-ceiling windows with territorial views. The new owners bought the home directly from Caplan’s estate in hopes of settling their growing family into the residence conveniently located near public transportation and the Burke Gilman bike trail. But in order to accommodate the family, the mid-century home needed updating, remodeling, and fortifying–Seattle-based SHED Architecture & Design was selected t... Más

MONTECAMPIONE

Una montaña, hogar del alma. Esta podría ser la definición de esta casa en Montecampione (BS) para Claudia Parzani, presidenta de Allianz Italia, vicepresidenta de Borsa Italiana y socia directora de West Europe Linklaters.   Claudia nunca ha cortado los lazos con los lugares y la gente de su juventud. En Montecampione encontró no sólo a los famosos prealpes lombardos - nació en Brescia - sino, sobre todo, a los amigos de toda la vida. Un oasis de tranquilidad, por lo tanto, lejos del frenesí de una vida diaria de viajes, reuniones y compromisos públicos.   El apartamento, situado en uno de los condominios perfectamente integrado en la zona boscosa, era una casa familiar...

Omaha Art House

The redesign of this Omaha, Nebraska home focused on seamlessly integrating artworks from the couple’s extensive collection. Devoted almost entirely to the work of artist Jun Kaneko, the collection includes several large-scale sculptural and two-dimensional works. Kaneko is known for his strong sensitivity to space and surrounding environments. Accordingly, this home’s design paid special attention to the relationship of the artworks both to the built environment, and to the newly integrated natural environment brought visually into the home.   Opening up the home to the surrounding landscaping was a prime directive for the remodel, as was the desire to concentrate common living spaces onto a single level. The new program... Más

Mountain Retreat

The mountain retreat is a small structure set within a high country station occupying 1300 hectares on the south facing shores of Lake Wakatipu, Central Otago. It is an alpine environment formed by heavily glaciated schist mountainscapes and vegetated below the snow line with beech forest. Early European occupation of the region began in 1840 with explorers seeking to extend pastoral activities established in the gentler environments to the north and east of the Southern Alps. Early European occupation as well as the discovery of the Central Otago Goldfields resulted in structures for shelter and utility made from the stackable weathered schist readily available around the rivers and glaciated mountain slopes.

West Loop Loft and Roof Deck

West Loop Loft ResidenceThis interior renovation unifies four existing lofts into one large open living space on three different levels. We located the kitchen/eating area in the center of the space to create a central social gathering and communal area. Fireplaces are used as focal points to mark both ends of the L-shaped living space. Built-in shelves and cabinetry separate interior rooms while simultaneously connecting spaces and storing the owners’ large book collection and travel treasures. The bedrooms, bathrooms, and offices are tucked upstairs under the building’s original wood ceiling. New, cantilevered metal grate floors with open rails increase the upper level live/work area and allow light to filter to the spaces bel... Más

Lawless Retreat

Los clientes habían buscado durante cinco años en cuatro estados para encontrar un sitio para su casa de fin de semana que les hablara. Este retiro iba a ser todo lo que su residencia en Chicago - un espacio elevado enclavado dentro de las vigas del ático de una iglesia convertida - no era. El loft está en el corazón del bullicioso barrio de Wicker Park; buscaban serenidad y un ritmo más lento. El loft cuenta con una colección altamente curada de mobiliario europeo contemporáneo elegante; se inspiraron en la idea de un santuario con una sensibilidad moderna pero también arraigada en su lugar con la artesanía manual sentida en escalas grandes y pequeñas. Las vistas... Más
