Richmond Avenue House by Lipton Architects located in London, UK. “Our unique process has transformed Richmond Avenue to create a site-specific result that is recognizably original, intelligently resolved, aesthetic, enduring and valuable. The creation of a two-story high glass rear addition playfully connects family life together. A double-height glass extension was designed to sit gracefully, transforming the introvert lower ground space, with its closed in corridors and segregated rooms, to an extrovert space that reaches out and makes connections with the garden and ground floor. A glazed tryptic – a ground floor balcony, an oriel stair seat and an internal study window – overlooks the double height space, creating playful and connected family spaces.” Lipton Architects

Acoustic Wall

The premise of the project is to create an acoustic barrier to the minoritized acoustic impact that provides urban road next to the house.

It maintains the facade looks introverted with the street and the house opens only to the south.

 

 

Mediterranean Architecture

The house used to construct from the characteristic features and the Mediterranean house.

Bearing walls, small openings, porch to south facade coating of lime, stone walls and pitched roofs with tile Mother and Arabic.

The creation of patios helps us maintain privacy locking interior views veïns

>Al being a house of urbanization, acoustic and visual barriers between neighbors are very important in terms of life outside the house.

Low-impact Eco-friendly Materials

Another starting point is the use of materials with low impact to nature and avoids building elements harmful to human beings, and therefore try to avoid the use of concrete as insulation portlant artificial walls are replaced by block ceramic and natural cork insulation.

V House by Abraham Cota Paredes Arquitectos situated in Guadalajara, Jalisco, México | The Hardt

 

V House by Abraham Cota Paredes Arquitectos situated in Guadalajara, Jalisco, México. Completed in 2015, the patio in the 3,821 ft² (355 m²) home became the Hardt of the house, and articulates public and private areas, providing lighting and ventilation. In the patio, there is a body of water with a tree, which captures light from the south, through a kind of chimney that blends the light. The land is located in the limit of a closed condominium, with a height difference of 8 meters at the back, which allows us to release the views to the east of the metropolitan area of Guadalajara. To take advantage of the location, the plant plays a staggered, making the space to expand, as the visitor walks deeper into the house. A large window frames the horizon but preserving privacy due to the change in ground level. In the middle of the field, a patio, which will become the heart of the house, articulates public and private areas, providing lighting and ventilation. In the patio there is a body of water with a tree, which captures light from the south, through a kind of chimney that blends the light A wooden cross reminiscent Barragan, seems to float in space, framing the patio.  Water, tree, and light, fill the space with an aura of serenity.

 

 


 

The double height of the 3 levels is concatenated, creating a spatial continuity or fluidity. Upstairs, the master bedroom face to the east of the city. Leading the field, facing the neighboring houses, 2 bedrooms are placed. United through a balcony, which allows correctly orient your windows, protecting them from the heat of the setting sun. Formally the house seeks to be solid with the least possible subtractions. Two subtractions generate the main facade. Downstairs, the entrance and garage, and a balcony, which in turn opens onto the street and the sky. Upstairs, a cantilevered staircase leads to the terrace, which seeks to preserve the essence of the regional architecture. Contained by walls and a steel structure which in the future will be covered with plants. The terrace opens to the east, allowing you to enjoy a panoramic view of the city.

Situated in Urgnano, Italy, Abitazione Privata Urgnano by Matteo Casari Architetti. The house is built on a small lot within a residential area of expansion in the territory. The project site conditions are interpreted to generate dissonance and denying direct view to the outside. In a context typological and stylistic multitude, the volume of a rectangular oriented parallel to Via Basella reduces to a few gestures the mite relationship with the outside.
