Amagansett Addition

The client, a bachelor, found that his existing house, located on a bluff overlooking Amagansett Beach, did not provide enough space for entertaining his many friends and family for the summer. The existing pool deck provides stunning panoramic views of the ocean, so capitalizing on the view and creating an easy flow from inside to outside was critical in the design of this 5,000 square-foot modular guest house addition. Caption The client’s brief called for the existing house to remain, so a large auto court was created to accommodate guest entry. Additionally, a new sitebuilt garage is cantilevered off the bluff. A large hydraulically-operated glass garage door and floor-to-ceiling glazing opposite the garage door maintain vie... Altro

Cornwall Cabin

Overlooking a lush wooded valley below, the Cornwall Cabin rests on a steep sloping site in a rural corner of Northwestern Connecticut. As a weekend retreat for a Manhattan mother and her young daughter, the 1,500 square foot modern prefabricated cabin - located two hours outside the city - was carefully designed for simple, low-maintenance living. The compact floor plan efficiently accommodates the essentials for their weekend lifestyle. Custom built-ins for storage, benches, bookshelves, and bunk beds were incorporated throughout to maximize space and usability. Caption The cabin is sited to allow for uninterrupted views of the valley to the South. As such, the house is a linear composition oriented on an East/West axis, with expans... Altro

Lido Beach House II

Situata su un lotto a bandiera all'angolo di Lido Beach, questa casa prefabbricata di 2.625 piedi quadrati funge da casa estiva per un professore/scrittore e la sua famiglia. La casa tenta di stabilire una relazione con le dune e la spiaggia circostanti pur essendo referenziale al suo accogliente quartiere. Resolution: 4 Architecture A livello del terreno, tre volumi di deposito in cemento servono come elementi organizzativi che sollevano la casa da terra e creano un carport, un'area salotto e una doccia esterna che sono al riparo dalla strada. Le scale nella parte anteriore della casa portano ad un portico d'ingresso e ad una zona di scarico, fornendo uno spazio per bypassare il primo piano privato e continuare al secondo piano pubbl...

Renzo Piano Building Workshop completes Ecole Normale Supérieure Paris Saclay

On the Paris Saclay campus Renzo Piano Building Workshop arranged a string of approximately twenty buildings around a central garden. Two buildings are offset towards the center to form the entrance to the university campus block. The 63,000 square meter building welcomes 3000 students. © Michel Denancé Renzo Piano Building Workshop designed the building with a holistic approach in which each element, each detail, each typology is part of a whole. A modular system was implemented where many of the parts are repeated over the different buildings. © Michel Denancé Design choices are based on the idea that structural appearance is secondary to functionality. The structure is made up out of large 16 meter wid... Altro

Estúdio Lapinha

The architectural design of Estúdio Lapinha was conceived to be executed in two stages. The first was the construction of a modular housing inside two containers, exhibited at CASACOR Minas 2021. The second will be completed after its disassembly and reassembly in Lapinha da Serra, where it will serve as accommodation. Henrique Queiroga The construction process guided the project. Two container modules were attached laterally, their industrialized components exposed without camouflage. The hydraulics are concentrated in one wall, creating the infrastructural module. This strategy, apart from reducing costs, frees the rest of the space. Therefore, the other container is a flexible, indeterminate module, a free plan, which, in th... Altro

Casa Acqua

Casa Acqua è stata concettualizzata seguendo le stesse linee guida della casa romana originale! La casa romana originale, scoperta sotto le lave pietrificate del vulcano Vesuvio, aveva una pianta a forma di "O" e aveva un cortile interno con balconi che circondavano le stanze, che permetteva l'integrazione visiva di tutti gli spazi/persone e una fontana centrale che simboleggiava la prosperità! Caption Questa tipologia era adatta ai nostri tempi attuali e, soprattutto, ripensata per questo vero momento di pandemia, a Casa Acqua! Il progetto ha quattro moduli, individualizzati per settori (intimo, sociale, tempo libero e servizi), con un cortile interno. Questo dispiegamento individualizzato porta la privacy quando neces...

DD16 - prototype of modular compact house

DD16 is a prototype of modular compact house that was made for installation in remote places and extreme conditions. The house consists of 2 modules that are made at the factory. Ivan Ovchinnikov The prototype was designed and made as a tourist equipment where the weight of every detail is taken into account so it can be used in very harsh conditions. All the constructive elements were subject to change as well as the interior finishing compared to the regular houses. The frame is made of laminated wood with a milled ports. The ports helped to decrease the weight and cold bridges and gaps. Polyurethane foam is used as an insulation, the rigidity of which helped to decrease the weight of inner finishing materials. The exterior finishin... Altro

Modular house on the slope

The countryside residence for the young couple was designed in 2019. The plot on the slope suggested an unusual solution for the location of the house and the landscape design. Sergey Melnikov The idea of the project was to create a very open but still functional living space. The client’s family wanted to spend as much time as possible outdoors with children, creating the points of attraction for the unity with nature without losing comfort and functionality, those being such important elements nowadays.This is how the large terraces, pleasant to walk on barefoot, appeared around the house. The terraces were followed by a pergola creating a shade for the family meals on hot summer days, by a summer kitchen that perfectly suits... Altro

Modulos Habitables Set

Based on our experience as architects over the years, we have identified a difficulty when it comes to accessing our own spaces and executing a construction (economic uncertainty, long times and tedious processes). In some way, traditional construction maintains its processes for thousands of years and it was there that we found an opportunity to enhance the way in which architecture in general is conceived. Gonzalo Viramonte "Everything simpler" is the motto of the studio and our main design premise for every decision about our design. The proposal from the studio is to industrialize architecture and all that concerns it. We approach each design from a preconceived base, but we are flexible in its design in order to personalize each... Altro
