The Lake House located in Seattle, Washington by Suyama Peterson Deguchi. The Lake House was conceived as a 21st Century retreat – an escape from expectations of modern life to a lakefront cabin near the city. The site is a narrow plot of land tightly wedged between existing single-family houses. The houses have an imposing presence on the site creating a need for visual privacy. The program allowed the design to be conceptually simplified into three components – a thick wall extruded from the topography, a low horizontal roof, and a volume for sleeping. The site conditions led us to carve multiple indoor/outdoor spaces into the topography – by filling some of the spaces with water we were able to expand the sense of the waterfront deeper into the property. The resulting spaces relieved the pressure for privacy from the waterfront exposure. A low roof provides a horizontal datum; a reference point to the sloping topography and a sense of open privacy from the neighbors.

Baron House located in Skåne, Sweden by John Pawson. The site of this vacation house in rural southern Sweden came with a conventional arrangement of farm buildings set around a courtyard and the earliest phases of the project explored the possibility of retaining some elements of the original structures. The final design raises single-story wings of accommodation on the cleared footprint of the old. Agricultural precedents are reworked in both the form and materiality of the architecture, producing pitched roofs of corrugated zinc, white rendered walls and timber elements.

Mosha House by New Wave Architecture situated in Mosha, which is just outside of Tehran, Iran. It is inevitable that the innate trend of a human being is tangled to the natural landscape, The location of the project is Mosha site in the vicinity of the north side of Tehran in domains of Alborz mountains. Intensive topography and location between mountains with sightseeing to flat plain of Mosha inspired us to create a sense of suspension and wide view for all spaces. Our goal of merging nature with human life led us to have a vertical distribution of functions with less land occupation for building and hence allocates more portion of land to design landscape.

 

 

The adopted shape for this project is a transverse volume with direction from domain to Mosha plain, so the form of three cantilevered boxes, with specific rotation to each other, comes out. Consequently, additional spaces are generated, whereas a ceiling of each story is the terrace of another. The apparently high slope of the site provides a perfect sense of suspension for each box. Functions are distributed from upper to lower level respectively. For having an endless view, the sides of the boxes facing the plain have floor-to-ceiling windows with numerous panoramic views. Here windows acting a role more than just an opening or constructional element, They are like a transparent curtain between in and out that overflow interiors with natural vision.\

 

 

An inclined cylindrical shaft is located in the intersection point of boxes which covers the stairs and has shaped a void that due to its position supplies an oblique view among all three levels and improves family interactions. The sense of nature is flowing inside spaces moreover to all aspects with using wood as one of basic natural elements in a building that can be seen in floor and wall of sports rooms and in stairs which are moving upward from lower levels to the upper ones. For saving Purity of the form building is covered with one single white shield which is made building’s volume distinctive and bright in the domain of mountain.

Fonte Boa House by João Mendes Ribeiro located in Fonte Boa, Portugal. The Fonte Boa House is a single family house designed in a rural estate in Fartosa, Fonte Boa, in the center of Portugal. The small estate, with a vineyard and olive grove, is located in the Rabaçal valley, confined by the Jerumelo, Sicó, and Espinhal mountains. This expressive valley’s landscape, which was once occupied by a Roman villa (around IV BC), is now mainly characterized by small plants and big olive trees. The house is located in the west side of the estate, protected from the main road, taking advantage of the best sun exposure, the surrounding trees and the views over the valley. The accurate position of the house was set so that there wouldn’t be major changes in the terrain, maintaining the existing slope and preserving all the existing trees.

 

 

Reinterpreting the traditional single-family housing typology, the house is a two-story rectangular volume with zinc pitched roof, whose volume detaches itself from the slope with a concrete basement (occupied by a small wine cellar). From the street, the entrance is made through an opening in the stone wall that limits the south part of the site. The open garage, built below the terrain level, is enclosed by concrete walls, by the semi-underground concrete box that hosts the laundry room, and by the stairs that lead to the upper level where the house is located. A succession of platforms leads to the entrance of the house, which is protected by a windbreak door. Inside, both floors are organized in three parts, with core stairs and utility area that, on the ground floor, divides the dining from the living room and, on the first floor, separates the two main bedrooms.

Walensee House by km Architektur located in Unterterzen, Switzerland, a small village on Walensee lake, one of the largest lakes in Switzerland. Completed in 2007 the 7,400-square-foot home has a ridiculous view of lake Walensse and the mountains of Churfürsten. The location alone of this single family home in Unterterzen, with a clear view of lake Walensse and the mountains of Churfirsten, is spectacular. The property which is located on the slope of a green meadow offered the conditions to realize the floating design which captivates through its clear form and the use of natural materials using concrete, glass, and wood as the structural material. A loggia encircles the building on the water side, fulfills an open living space and creates a flowing transition between interior and exterior with a fantastic panoramic view. The effect is intensified by sliding glass doors as high as the room itself on this side of the façade. The back of the house appears to be more closed. Rooftop photovoltaic panels and a stove in the living room produce most of the energy for the home.

Copper House II by Studio Mumbai situated in Chondi, Maharashtra, India.  The Hortus conclusus unites within itself a marvelous assemblage of disparate aspects. It seeks to understand the landscape it denies, explain the world it excludes, bring in the nature it fears and summarise all this in an architectural composition. The Enclosed Garden, Rob Aben, Saskia de Wit. The severe flood of Mumbai and its hinterland in 2005 had marked its high-water mark on a pump-house that was extant to the site. After using it to register the datum for the house, pile foundations were put in and a slab was cast two feet above the high-water line. The central fill came from the excavation for the well, and around a court, the house grew. The language and logic of the building are located in three primary architectural moves. The first is the creation of two distinct blocks, varying in width by a foot, separated by the stone-paved courtyard on the ground, and united by the cupric roof plane at the upper level. The two blocks function as discrete personal spaces on the upper level, one is a singular space of bedroom and bath, the other has an additional study.

 

 

At the ground level, an indoor family room becomes an adjunct to the main living space which does not have the containment that the other more private spaces exhibit. This main space functions literally as the deck of the house, overlooking the landscape and the courtyard, creating a simultaneity of vistas, each of a different scale and access. The copper-covered private spaces at the upper level are positioned in mutual tension, with the guarantee of simultaneous intimacy and isolation, so essential to the domestic interior. This spatial strategy also allows for varying levels of communication, visual and otherwise, between the upper and lower spaces of the house. In Kerala, further south from Mumbai along the west coast of the Indian peninsula (as in many other regions), the courtyard was the center of the traditional house.

 


 

The central room formed by the courtyard flanked by pillars was called the naalukettu. But the entire structure, comprising the central hall and the four wings around was also commonly referred to as the naalukettu. This reference to the courtyard as the house itself, holds a clue to the development of the design for this house, as it evolved from being an embracing structure to one which opened out. The second definitive move is the layering of light through a series of material gestures, each one tuned to the direction that light takes and the need for changing degrees of privacy. This is articulated with screening devices made of fine netting framed in traditionally crafted wood, fluted glass which diffuses the light and greenery and hints at the absent city, and sliding and folding wooden windows, all of which allow for degrees of seclusion.

 

 

The walls are finished in a celadon-colored traditional plaster, smooth like human skin, and crackled like the ancient Chinese glaze, giving the transitory appearance of a fragmented ceramic container, rectilinear and encased with a lid of weathered copper. The continuous copper roof plane forms a secondary datum for the house, becoming a surface of potential occupation and cover. The last is the inclusion of the element of water, whether in the form of the monsoon rain which is relentless in its action on material and mood, or in the form of the well, the stream and the pool beyond the house. The seasonal ‘anxiety’ of the ground is addressed in the manner in which the paving is worked out within the courtyard in a continuous linear fashion and in a loose ring around the house, with undulations registering the flow of rainwater as it reaches for the nearest point of exit. The entrance portal of the building is a non-place. Sitting beneath the first upper copper-wrapped container, it becomes a space of pause. In this house, with its Hortus conclusus acting both as container and sieve, the exploration of the rites of retreat, passage and exclusion are tested again. The final gesture was housing the massive rock which came as a gift from the owner’s mother, leaving it for time to take over, as time inevitably will.
