Logement insolite en verre respectueux de la nature -

En raison de son originalité, le projet de cette résidence est resté inachevé pendant quelques années, jusqu’au moment où l’architecte a réussi à trouver une nouvelle source de financement. Et, comme il se trouve que cette source de financement est une entreprise qui travaille dans le domaine de la création et de la distribution de panneaux solaires, l’architecte a décidé de rendre sa création plus proche de la nature et plus respectueuse de l’environnement.

Big Ideas, Small Buildings: Some of Architecture's Best, Tiny Projects

" Taschen’s latest volume draws together the architectural underdogs that, despite their minute, whimsical forms, are setting bold new trends for design. When economies falter and construction halts, what happens to architecture? Tiny Hut In The Woods. Tree-Inspired Single Pole Home. Treehouse Solling / baumraum. Architects: baumraum Location: Uslar, Germany Area: 37.0 sqm Project Year: 2010 Photographs: Markus Bollen The site of this treehouse near the town of Uslar in Lower Saxony is located beside an old forester’s house in a small side valley.

Treehouse Solling / baumraum

Access to the property is provided by a forest road running along a small brook with a few ponds. The house was restored with great effort and dedication and its surroundings were carefully landscaped. Natural stone walls, newly planted indigenous trees, and two large artificial pond habitats have turned the place into a nature lover’s delight and a haven for flora and fauna alike. Thus the site is in many ways the perfect location for a treehouse. A handsome stand of hemlock spruce by the lower of the two ponds was chosen as the site of the treehouse, and soon the decision was made to set a two-storey treehouse tower into the pond itself and connect it with the hemlock spruces by means of a long terrace.

In fall 2014, studios of thirteen students were facing the challenges of designing an innovative yet practical shelter to meet the needs of the extreme alpine climate.

The extreme climatic conditions in the mountains introduce a design challenge for architects, engineers and designers. Moonlight Cabin / Jackson Clements Burrows.

Moonlight Cabin / Jackson Clements Burrows

YTTRUP Associates Building Surveyor: Noel Gosling From the architect. Located on a windswept coast line, Moonlight Cabin is a place to retreat from and engage with the landscape’s ephemeral conditions. It is a small footprint shelter (60m2) that explores the boundaries of how small is too small, challenging conventional notions of what is actually necessary in our lives. The plan is conceived as one volume with kitchen, bathroom and utilities inserted within a central island pod which effectively unlocks the corridor to become an important habitable space. Moonlight Cabin is grid connected and rainwater is sustainably harvested.

Solveig Sandness, Arch. Hus-1 / Torsten Ottesjö. Architects: Torsten Ottesjö Location: Scandinavian West Coast Area: 25.0 sqm Photographs: David Relan From the architect. Hus 1 is an inspiring new house designed and built by Torsten Ottesjö. With double curved surfaces, compact and efficient planning it is a house on the human scale that blends effortlessly into the surrounding nature. Situated in the unique cultural landscape of the Scandinavian West Coast, Hus 1 reflects and communicates with its surroundings. The natural materials used in the construction have made it a friendly place for both humans and nature for its whole life cycle.

The building was constructed on site. The 25 sqm house aims to provide a living space beyond understanding. Minimalist Hut in Austrian Forest. The Domup Treehouse. L’arboriculteur Néerlandais Bruno de Grunne et l’architecte Nicolas d’Ursel de Trees and People sont à l’initiative de ce projet innovant de cabane en suspension. Le résultat final est un véritable refuge facile à installer et qui ne laisse aucune trace, sans aucun impact sur son environnement. Slice / Saunders Architecture. Architects: Saunders Architecture Location: Haugesund, Norway Area: 15.0 sqm Year: 2014 Photographs: Bent René Synnevåg From the architect. As a consequence of the global economic recession and increase of centralization, architects worldwide take on the challenge of designing small houses. The design ideas are often proportionally inverted by the sizes. A small building on just 15m2 is just as likely to give the architect a pleasurable task than a ginormous building on 5000 m2. A significant reduction of size and budget is not necessarily synonymous with a reduced ingenuity.

«How can we get the most out of this project?» Artists sometimes work on the architects’ court, and sometimes architects work in the intersection between art and architecture. «Slice» describes the little house Todd Saunders drew in a small garden in Slåttevik just outside Haugesund in Norway.
