House 304 (2015) by KIENTRUC O located in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. In this house, we want to provoke an honest living experience for a young family living in a typical urban Vietnamese townhouse. Only 3.5mx12m in size, single façade facing an open street, the design context poses challenges to create a casual, well ventilated and well-lit space within a constrained building footage. Vertical expansion of the light well helps to maximize the desired spatial quality and conditions, while provoking a sense of openness and connectedness to nature as it opens up to the sky. House 304 is a combination of simple spatial functionality, contemporary materials, structure, and construction methodology. Finishes with everyday material, white wall, and timber, the focal point of the house is the interplay between light and nature. Airy, open, and provides uninterrupted view both inside out, and outside in, the residence still possess a sense of private and secure when needed. Thus, the house is a pure representation depicting the life of a young Vietnamese family, that is straightforward, authentic and contented.

Reform of a House Between Walls by DATAAE located in Sant Feliu de Llobregat, Barcelona, Spain. Reform of a House Between Walls is a minimalist interior design project located in Barcelona, Spain, designed by DATAAE. The intervention is based on the preservation of the original composition, volume, and structure of the home. Selective demolition of the interior partitions and the staircase made way for a new distribution of programs that suited the needs of the inhabitants, which sought to improve natural light and conservation of energy. The new distribution is characterized by being more diaphanous, built with light systems and with the predominant use of wood. The ground floor is settled into a unique environment that welcomes the living room, dining room, and kitchen. By demolishing a part of the floor, a double space is created to provide additional height and natural overhead lighting. The casting of this flooring has no effect on the structure since all of the original wooden beams were maintained.

Mipibu House (2015) by Terra e Tuma Arquitetos Associados located in São Paulo, Brazil | The Hardt

 

Mipibu House (2015) by Terra e Tuma Arquitetos Associados located in São Paulo, Brazil. This house represents a very common situation in São Paulo, a long and narrow ground 18 x 98 ft [5.6×30.0m], with only the front elevation free of interference of the buildings around it. The challenge increased from the moment that we had to meet an extensive program for this area, which led us to maximum occupancy allowed, 1,830 ft² (170 m²). 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. Considering the inevitable verticalization of its neighbors, all of them glued at the boundaries, the first step was to reverse the facades, think the project “inside out”, as it will take out a glove. So when we brought the frames inside, we could use them to exhaustion, making it extremely open interior, as opposed to the fully enclosed outer perimeter. Then we positioned two inner courtyards, but functioning as the outside areas of the house. And they, like with other office projects, organize everything. In addition to providing necessary light and ventilation for health and spatial quality, articulate the rooms.

 

 

Another unexpected decision for the client was the positioning of the bedrooms on the ground floor, usually used for the social areas, and so we ascend the “ground” to the upper floor. This decision was given for intimate floor, the bedrooms, greater privacy, and silence. For social pavement provided integration with the roof slab, used as a recreational area, and so, therefore, not occurring the interruption by the intimate floor. It also has become the social areas better lit and ventilated. At the request of the client one of the courtyards became a water mirror, and with it, another important factor was the simultaneous design of the landscaping project. In this way, it was possible to provide an appropriate structure to receive both a large tree on the top deck, at the outdoor terrace adjoining the room, as the slab to bear the weight of the trays with plants that fall on the water mirror. Again scarce resources, but a lot of commitment to propose ways to follow that become the critical thinking in a viable work.

House in Preguiçosas by Branco-Del Rio Arquitectos located in Coimbra, Portugal | The Hardt

 

House in Preguiçosas by Branco-Del Rio Arquitectos located in Coimbra, Portugal. The house is located on the outskirts of Coimbra, an area of single-family homes in the consolidation process. The plot currently enjoys a pleasant view and is a bit isolated, features that will disappear when adjacent buildings rise. Thus the house, elevated as required by the rules, is enclosed seeking one single opening with a porch to the south garden. The house makes up for its small size by connecting spaces. It seizes the exterior of both the garden and patio, incorporating them through the continuity of the elements. The interiors follow one another, link and relate visually. Always offering distant perspectives and specific visual relations with the outside.

 

 


 

The organization on three floors responds to the classical system of services – social areas – bedrooms, characterized by differences in light and materiality: from the cavernous basement to the overhead light that bathes the stairs and the work area adjacent to it at the top floor. The social floor is organized around the kitchen which the owners, a couple with young children, considered the center of their activity and their house habits. The two larger divisions occupy opposite ends: the south living room appropriates the garden and the studio to north closes to the street. Both connect through the courtyard, which belongs to them equally. All plans that connect these spaces are continuous and fluid, and hidden door and window frames fade limits. The construction of this house was made with a strict economic control and quality, aiming at the correct execution of the details thus allowing, with a very limited budget, surprising results.

YA House by Kubota Architect Atelier located in Japan | The Hardt

 

YA House by Kubota Architect Atelier located in Japan. Space for freedom and liberating minds: all architecture exists for that. The residence is located in Hyogo Prefecture of Japan. It sits near the peak of a mountain where picturesque residences blend into nature from long ago. The sloped site, which was cut through the mountain, spins a supreme world of trees and greenery spreading nearby, endlessly extending blue sky, the refreshing wind that quivers the surrounding and filled with bright light. It was attempted to tie the blessings of the rich nature to daily lives and enlarge joy of living by permeating them into deep down minds. Two vertical walls and four horizontal slabs are configured towards the slope and spaces for a living are created between them.

 

 

 

 

 

Each space is different in relation to nature and the different senses us the latent infinity of nature. Furthermore, the boundary between nature and architecture, that is, the edge of the slabs and the walls that define space are scraped off. As one side is bare concrete and the other side is all painted in white, materiality and massiveness is lost and only the meaning as the surface remains. Such highly abstract six walls and slabs let the spaces created between them to shift from concrete to abstract and reveal `empty’ world where nothing exists. Perfectly unfilled `empty’ world is where only mutable nature and ambiguous mind in reality exist and everything stimulates abstract interrelationship and blends into one. Thus, minds assimilate the infinity of nature, are liberated intensely and find great pleasure in life proceeding with nature.
