Sangdeh Villa

The architecture of Sangdeh Villa is based on the architecture of two Iranian Iwans (vaulted spaces, walled with three walls), except that due to the mountainous location of the villa and the extroverted architecture of the vernacular houses, the Iwans are located next to each other. These Iwans are two frames so that residents can view nature’s picturesque images from different angles. To make a distinction between adjacent Iwans, and to orient spaces to the surrounding landscapes, the western Iwan has a 45-degree angle to the main Iwan. the space behind the main Iwan includes the Family room and the space behind the smaller Iwan, includes bedrooms as a memory of Birouni (Semi-public part) and Andarouni (Private part) in Iranian arc...

桃舍 PEACH HOUSE, Beijing

刘家小院 桃舍 PEACH HOUSE, Beijing– Rural housing construction owes little to the State and household savings even enable to build private ownership. By allowing the purchase of materials from local manufacturers and artisans, self-built housing construction is prevalent in rural areas. Private property goes back to the agricultural reform of the 1950s, which did not succeed in establishing collective habitations, but reaffirmed the notion of private property as the expression of the work of the family. They are the homes of peasants – inherited or built with domestic savings. The courtyard house in North China constitutes a form of housing which is the result of a long process of interaction between the built form and social, economic, and cultu... More

Broad Street House

Broad Street House is new build home in Suffolk by Nash Baker Architects. The house utilises a palette of natural and traditional materials to blend with the rural street scene, and the exterior uses oak cladding and handmade bricks (both locally sourced) to blend with the architectural character of the village. To create a more distinctive look, the bricks were laid in a variation of ‘Monks bond’ using white iron-free sand for the lime mortar which was sourced from the local Wivenhoe pit. In contrast to the brickwork at the ground floor, the upper level appears lightweight, utilising ribbons of untreated oak cladding to wrap up and across a pitched roof. The oak cladding was sized to match the brick course dimensions, so that the two el... More
