V60: A spacious house concept designed for two airline pilots

On a large site hidden off the main streets of Bangkok, WARrchitect designed a house for two pilots. Spending their working days in a confined cockpit and frequently having different travel schedules, the house is designed as a space where the two can spend time together without any tight spatial confines. Credit: RungkitCharoenwat With plenty of trees on the site, the house is divided into 3 zones: a living area, bedroom zone, and guest area. Green courtyard areas are inserted between these zones. Credit: RungkitCharoenwat To create a fluid sense of space, the three zones are not divided by interior partition walls.

The Nguyen Residence

This was actually the second house that I designed after I started my own Architectural firm. I worked closely with the clients to create an open floor plan, that takes advantage of the 'left-over' lot that they purchased in The Woodlands. Designing a house with a unique lot was really a fun experience, as well as a challenge, and led to the cool "Y" shaped floor plan. The great room is one of the best spaces that I have ever designed, and love the feeling I still get when I step from the small foyer out into the grand space.   Located in The Woodlands, Texas.Featured on the 2013 Woodlands AIA Home Tour. Published on, an online Architectural website, in January 2013. More

Feeling of brick texture tactile; hearing the sound of our steps on the metal sheets, looking at the sky which we pass under of it every single day without any attention to it, not even trying to pause and enjoy watching it. Listening to the “water features located at the site”.PAUSE from the exterior is a cube that holds a suspended brick volume and this is adequate enough to incite the adventure and curiosity... More

Stansbury Park Elementary School

An elementary school for a new subdivision called Stansbury Park, called for a large program to be executed under a tight budget. The program called for a windowless school and impervious materials for the cold weather and winds which prevail in an area by Tooele, Utah, close to the Great Salt Lake. Kenneth Lambert and Kenneth Pollard created a wood structure with brick veneer. The entire corridor throughout had skylights to provide the students with sunlight and time of day passage. Exterior doors of the classrooms had glass for sunlight and views. The importance of scale and materials play an critical part in this project. This project was preformed under the firm Scott , Louie and Browning Architects. More

Michelle House

The residence for a family of two - commissioned by a technology entrepreneur. Located in a 15.000 m2 lot in the Metropolitan Region of Curitiba, construction should not advance on the area of ​​environmental protection that covers almost 70% of the site. The occupation in the western portion of the terrain, where a natural clearing already existed, proved to be the least invasive option.The residence develops along two axes: an internal and an external circulation. While the interior corridor promotes access to the house's surroundings, the exterior creates a space for articulation between the woods and the house, and also serves as a rectilinear balcony with access to the kitchen, dining, living and office.The sectorization defines the bu...
