The challenge increased from the moment that we had to meet an extensive program for this area, which led us to maximum occupancy allowed, 170m2. With the value of land ever higher, reaching a solution that meets twice the ideal area for small plots like this has been our work and of many other architects who seek to propose good projects for its clients, for themselves and for the city. Maison pierre et acier de style contemporain en Australie -

Cette maison pierre et acier avec architecture contemporaine est un projet signé Alexandra Buchanan.

Maison pierre et acier de style contemporain en Australie -

Elle se trouve dans une région sauvage d’Australie. Située sur une colline qui surplombe le fleuve Yarra, le bâtiment s’élève au milieu d’une région recouverte de brousse dans un des fameux bushland du continent le plus éloigné de l’Europe. La région, qui est soumise à un accès restreint et qui est recouverte de végétation, a constitué un vrai challenge pour les architectes du studio Alexandra Buchanan. Ceux-ci ont donc décidé d’exploiter la topographie naturelle de la zone de construction pour inscrire efficacement le nouveau bâtiment dans le paysage et pour faire bénéficier ses propriétaires des belles vues.

Le projet a donc évolué autour de la création d’un espace d’habitation en deux parties qui apporte plus d’intimité, de lumière naturelle et un accès facile à l’extérieur.

The 180 square meter residential home is located in Old Jaffa. Its location is unique in that it is set above the harbor, facing west with all of its openings facing the majestic splendor of the Mediterranean Sea. Whilst it is difficult to determine the buildings exact age, it is clear that it is hundreds of years old. Over the years, it has undergone many changes and had many additions made that have damaged the original quality of the building and its spaces. House Olmen / Pascal François Architects.

House Olmen / Pascal François Architects

An old three - façade house, connected with the barn, was demolished and replaced by a contemporary barn-type building which was built behind the existing construction and which had to be in line with very strict building regulations. The new building is somewhat unaligned with the existing barn, thus creating protected exterior spaces in the form of two terraces.

The transversely positioned horse stable completes the set-up. Honest materials emphasize the building’s local character. The interior atmosphere is created by natural light and splendid views on the surrounding nature. TMOLO House / PYO arquitectos.

Before its conversion, the farmhouse was untouched for over five decades and needed a complete renovation to be adapted for contemporary needs. There were two construction sites: the main house and a stable. The position and materiality of the architecture was maintained although given the farm's crumbling state, the new facade of the the main house was reconstructed with white concrete and local stone.

Stone House Transformation in Scaiano / Wespi de Meuron Romeo architects

The original substance of this historic stone house, in the core of the village of Scaiano, consists in a main building with a cellar with vault and two floors above with kitchen, living and sleeping spaces. A later added annex, also completely made in solid natural stone, contained on the ground floor a small grape brandy distillery, on the 1.floor a room with above an attic. An exterior stone stairs and some small walls in front of the main facade, seems to have been created in the same time as the annex. Lanshi Xidi Clubhouse / WANG, CAI & ASSOCIATES.

Lanshi Xidi Clubhouse / WANG, CAI & ASSOCIATES

Today, most Chinese architecture is defined by two distinct trends: a concern with utility or function or, a focus on image and style. Conversely, our design for the Lanshi Xidi Clubhouse seeks another approach, one that is contemporary and authentic yet tied to its cultural and environmental context. Conceptually, the endeavor is to create a building with a subdued presence that evokes qualities of simplicity and calm, and, is unique and integral to its surroundings. The building is oriented to provide natural light and ventilation while thickened walls are used to maximize insulation. Alfonsina House / CEKADA-ROMANOS Arquitectos.

The house is located at the north end of the urban fabric of the city of Arroyo Seco, in a new district that raises two lot lines addressed through a central boulevard as public space between them. This city growth is located between an important route that connects several industrial areas and the Paraná River. A two hectares area of planting fields separates the neighborhood from the river. The project is funded through a mortgage credit called PRO.CRE.AR and targets a first stage on the ground floor for the house of Alfonsina and their parents. The project site is a 10 x 31 meters lot located in a corner. Relux Ios Island / A31.

Site The project is located in a 5,800m2 rural plot south-east of Lima, 40.5 km from the road that borders the Lurin River from Lima to Huarochiri. The road that leads to the site is surrounded by a beautiful landscape where stone, wood, clay and local flora stand out. The irregular site is 70 meters higher than the River area, becoming a great natural balcony of the mountains/valley and the lush vegetation surrounding it Program Main design ideas -Respect the environment and become part of it; the two volumes are elements in harmony with the environment, each can be surrounded and therefore loose the front-back effect.

Located in a predominately Federation and California Bungalow neighbourhood on the north shore, our brief for this residential alterations and additions project was to rework a badly planned existing dwelling, and previous alterations project, to create a functional house for a family of 6 with improved natural light and greater connection to the garden. After initially exploring a two level option at the client’s request, we encouraged a compact single level proposal with improved planning and a spacious cross section as the best solution within the project’s tight budgetary constraints.
