House in Seya / Suppose Design Office

We have all ways have been interested in Nature. Nature that expresses time and change are some aspects that we try to incorporate in Architecture. Everybody feels and knows that the sky, sea, and forest are big but why does everyone feel this way? Scale is something important in architecture. The house in Seya is on a small site located in a residential area. It is the norm to erect walls to enclose a space for a building but for the house in Seya we decided to enclose the outer space.

The outer shell was built like a wooden storage and once the residence moved in to the space, by time there will be an increase in plants, book shelves or painting in the space will have the same quality as what nature where everything is in a state where it is neither finished nor unfinished.

Architect Chad Oppenheim, who has designed homes for the likes of movie director Michael Bay and projects for Pharrell, recently completed what he calls “House on a Dune,” a minimalistic, elegant and comfortable beach house that blends into its breathtaking surroundings in Harbour Island, Bahamas. The spectacular 3,000-square-foot waterfront private residence was designed to reconnect its inhabitants with nature, encouraging a greater consciousness of the elements and their manifestations.

In a time when architecture has become fixated with computer generated forms and over-the-top modern design, House on a Dune is elegant in its simplicity – designed to heighten ones experience of the beautiful island nature that surrounds the home and made to inspire and maximize pleasurable moments.

Small but with delight, this project looks at how a modest alteration and addition can make a positive contribution to the way a family live. On a south facing site in Northcote the key driver for this project was how to bring northern light into new living spaces. The new addition was kept as small as possible to retain the backyard space. The living spaces are now bathed in light in winter and the deep timber lined eave excludes the summer sun. The ‘M’ roof form is expressed internally to create expansive ceiling heights with the lining boards wrapping down the walls. The new living space has provided this family with a light filled space to come together and share daily life.

We got a chance to experiment on the topic of traditional Eastern Lithuanian countryside architecture – the project site is on strictly preserved natural reserve with a special stress on ethnographic peculiarities. The design is a modern country house for a man of the city. The building respects historical traits of regional architecture, but sacrifices no comfort provided by technologies of today. Dark grey exterior color outlines the traditional form of an old Lithuanian countryside cottage, but it’s inside reveals spacious lofty reach through the whole volume of the house, vast and filled with natural light.

While this complicates the resolution of access to the site provides the advantage that, if the house is located high, it is very little exposed to the gaze from the street, and also from the inside you can get views of the landscape above the neighboring buildings. This difference in level is more or less smooth to the back of the lot, but it is very sharp towards the opposite front and in this area the forest is also thinned. The constructionThe house is constructed with three basic materials: exposed concrete, glass and pine wood tables and beams. Kiyotoshi Mori Natsuko Kawamura MDS - Project - Tamaranzaka House.

Megumi Matsubara a travaillé aux côtés Hiroi Ariyama du studio Assistant pour réaliser une maison faite d’un mélange de matières premières comprenant l’acier, le bois, le béton, le plastique ondulé translucide et des panneaux de verre.

Située à côté d’un ancien temple bouddhiste, la maison a été conçue pour un couple âgé qui a décidé de déménager après 33 ans de vie commune dans leur foyer d’origine. Chaque partie de la maison a été construite en même temps dans trois endroits distincts – les villes de Nara, Sendai, et Aomori – avant d’être transportées sur le site et assemblées en une seule unité, les architectes se sont dits qu’ils créeraient ainsi une architecture qui «bouge».
