Field House / Blank Architects

The house is located in the XIX century village that is built among two lines of roads crossing in the heart of the community. The crossing is accented by landmark church. The original backdated cottages are lined regularly among the roads and their brick façades with gable roof always facing the road. The village is surrounded by agricultural fields with big population of birds, deer and hares moving around freely. The location area we received for work has a long cultivated field from one side and 4 adjacent houses from another side; one of these houses is inhabited by the family of the Client’s son.

Lake Cottage / UUfie

Lake Cottage is a reinterpretation of living in a tree house where nature is an integral part of the building. In a forest of birch and spruce trees along the Kawartha Lakes, the cottage is designed as a two storey, multi-uses space for a large family. Dezeen. MNy Arkitekter has used seven varieties of timber to create this gabled house on the shoreline of a small lake in Tenala, Finland (+ slideshow).


Local studio MNy Arkitekter gave House Åkerudden a gabled form that references the existing architecture in Tenala, a rural community around 60 miles west of Helsinki. But studio founder Mathias Nyström selected an assortment of treated and untreated timbers to subtly distinguish it from its neighbours. "The building's idiom is simple and oblong and it settles naturally into the open field landscape," said Nyström.

"In its simplicity and apparent modesty, it approaches vernacular architecture without mimicking it," he added. "The goals were authenticity, simplicity, locality and sustainability. " The house's timber structure is made from locally sourced spruce, which is treated with white-tinted oil and left exposed throughout the interior. The framework rests on oak batons and is completely clad in vertically arranged lengths of aspen. Dezeen. This Slovenian home by Skupaj Arhitekti mimics the gabled form of its Alpine village neighbours, but it also features contemporary details and finishes (+ slideshow).


Slovenian architects Meta Kutin and Tomaž Ebenšpanger designed the 100-square-metre residence for a hillside plot in Stara Fužina, a protected Alpine village in Slovenia's Triglav National Park. The house replaces a former mechanic's workshop. Its gabled form means the new structure is inconspicuous among its traditional neighbours, but more contemporary materials including fibre-cement shingles were used to finish the project. The roof is covered in thin, overlapping fibre-cement tiles laid to create a cross-hatched pattern, while galvanised metal accents update traditional wooden elements like window shutters and frames. The addition of the pitched roof was also a crucial factor in the negotiations. "Special attention has been focused on jutting roofs," they added. Hemishofen House / Dost.

Hemishofen House / Dost

From the architect. A young family’s dream of living by the river comes true in this house’s unique location: the bank of the river Rhine. The Hemishofen House is a compact volume with a clear and modern organization. The boundaries between interior and exterior are cleverly dissolved ensuring a strong connection with the surrounding nature. The house has 151 m2 and its 5 rooms are distributed over two floors. Croatian mountain lodge by Tomislav Soldo designed to light up like a lantern through diagonal shutters. Black-painted larch clads this small house in Croatia, designed by architect Tomislav Soldo for a hill overlooking forests and mountains.

Croatian mountain lodge by Tomislav Soldo designed to light up like a lantern through diagonal shutters

Soldo designed the two-storey Black Lodge for a sloped site in Gorski Kotar, a mountainous region in Croatia, with large windows to provide views of the surroundings. Like other residences in the region, the 100-square-metre house has a pitched roof, a compact layout and a wooden facade. In this instance, the architect chose Siberian larch cladding, which is painted with black tar that penetrates deep into the wood to offer protection over a long period of time. At night-time, the wooden shutters with diagonal panels that are placed in front of the windows allow artificial light to seep through. The architect says it lights the residence up like a lantern.

The idea of ”modern barn” came up quite early in the sketching phase. A building typology that naturally connected to the village's current scale and grammar. The materials and the details however was designed to give clear signals that this was built in our time. The outstretched and narrow volume was ideal for the project's spatial and functional program. Client's requests for maintenance-free facades together with the advantages of fast installation of the building's exterior walls led to the choice of precast concrete elements.

Concrete dovecote transformed into children's playhouse by AZO Sequeira. A small concrete structure once used as a house for doves has been transformed by Portuguese studio AZO Sequeira Arquitectos Associados into a garden playroom. The former dovecote had sat derelict in the back garden of the clients' Braga home, so they asked the AZO Sequeira team to make it into a space that they could use. The architects' response was to create a playroom in the elevated space that the doves previously used, while the hollow area underneath now contains a bathroom serving the family's swimming pool.
