House in Utsunomiya (2010) by Soeda and Architects located in Tochigi, Japan | The Hardt

 

House in Utsunomiya (2010) by Soeda and Architects located in Tochigi, Japan. The home is for parents and their son. They desired a commodious “doma” (dirt floor) and a flow line to their parents’ house neighbored on the south. the doma is situated in the center of the site and made it pass through the house. The three-storied doma with three large windows brings in natural light into the next four rooms, living room, dining room, master bedroom and guest room. I believe that an ideal house has space which generates a various behavior and good affection for itself. It would be better if the place is spacious enough to be served as multipurpose while avoiding being vacuous. House in Utsunomiya is for parents and their son. They desired a commodious “doma” (dirt floor) and a flow line to their parents’ house neighbored on the south.

 

 


 

The site faces the street northerly and is surrounded by four houses on other sides. The light was able to come through from the south side through the small void between the other homes. We arranged the doma at the center of the site and made it pass through the house. The three-storied doma with three large windows brings in natural light into the next four rooms; living room; dining room; master bedroom; and guest room. On the other hand, the doom is the penetrating void connected to the void of the south outside. So the floor of the doma is troweled with the charcoal mixed concrete as well as of outside, and the wall lightness level is brought closer to the external wall. Some rooms are connected with the doma, and once the Japanese shoji(sliding paper screens) is opened, all rooms become one. The two stairs in the doma are made of light steel rods and laminated timbers, which prevent the relations between some rooms from disconnected.

Located in Alcacer do Sal, Portugal, House for the Elderly by Aires Mateus. The project is based on an attentive reading of the life of a very specific kind of community, a sort of a micro-society with its own rules. It is a program, somewhere in between a hotel and a hospital, that seeks to comprehend and reinterpret the combination social/private, answering to the needs of a social life, and at the same time of solitude. Independents unities aggregate into a unique body, whose design is expressive and clear.

 

 

 


 

The reduced mobility of those who will live in the building suggests that any displacement should be an emotive and variable experience. The distance between the independent units is measured and drawn to turn the idea of the path into life, and its time into form. The building, designed path, is a wall that naturally rises from the topography: it limits and defines the open space, organizing the entire plot.

House on the Lake (2012) by AUM architecture

House on the Lake (2012) by AUM architecture, located in Thonon-les-Bains, France | The Hardt

 

House on the Lake (2012) by AUM architecture, located in Thonon-les-Bains, France. Images by Erick Saillet. The project designed for a couple with two children in 2012. The house is entirely made of raw concrete and its structure is exceptional because of its apparent simplicity and its truthful sophistication. The volume of the house results from the assembly of two boxes with pure lines. The first box forms the ground floor, wide open. The second, like a beam of incredible weightlessness, comes to bear itself on the low volume and creates the floor stretching in cantilever towards the lake. The whole of the volume rests only on a single column of great finesse which illustrates all the duality of this construction.

 

 

 

At the intersection of the two volumes is a double height which allows the living room to have all the necessary volume for a reception room. Only a narrow bridge stretching in the middle of this space creates the link between the parental suite overlooking the lake and the children’s rooms overlooking the garden. The house on the lake rhymes with transparency. Upstairs in the West facade, we have developed a contemporary mashrabiya made of Corian® resin thermoformed shapes. This sunscreen comes to control the energy and heat input of the house at the same time giving a special vibration to the facade. This latticework is fully assembled on site by our architecture studio. Environment: This house is extremely efficient from an energetic and environmental point of view and meets the requirements of the BBC label. Thus a multitude of technical solutions has been developed to conserve the raw concrete apparent outside and sometimes inside. In order to keep apparent the maximum of the raw concrete structure, the roof is insulated from the outside with a system of extremely efficient thin insulating panels. The reinforced concrete walls are divided with thermal breakers and thermal insulation.

Located in Niigata, Japan, M House by Facet Studio. The timber rafters supporting this majestic roof are exposed, and by having no supporting columns they are homogeneously “repeated” at 18 inches (455mm) spacing through the entire 70 ft (21m) east-west length.  This rhythm is repeated without any interruption.  As if to emphasize this repetition, the shelf columns, supporting the bookshelf extending across the length of the house, are “repeated” at a double, 36 inch (910mm) spacing; by repeating the same rhythm it is corresponding with the overhead roof rafters.

 

 


 

The large triangular windows to the east and west of the house visually connect this rhythm from inside to outside, blurring the boundary between, and expand the inhabitants’ senses further than the bounding walls.  We aim to achieve an ideal imagery of a family, enjoying living in a space of eternal expansion.

Kivik Pavilion (2008) by David Chipperfield & Anthony Gormley, located in Oterlen, Sweden. The concrete structure consists of three parts with equal volumes: an enclosed space in the base, an open viewing platform further up and a tower with spiral stairs leading to a 59 ft (18 meters) high viewing platform. The 2008 pavilion for Kivik Art Centre in southeast Sweden has been designed by David Chipperfield and Antony Gormley. The pavilion, which was constructed in only two months, is a sculpture entirely in concrete. Formed of three interlocked 100 m3 volumes – ‘The Cave’, ‘The Stage’ and ‘The Tower’ – the pavilion offers three different ways of experiencing the nature and landscapes around Kivik.

 

 

 


 

‘The Cave’ – a solid, dormant space in the base of the sculpture where one can rest on a wall-fixed bench, offers the enclosed feeling of being in the dark forest. Stairs then take the visitor up to the first floor – ‘The Stage’ – a horizontal volume open to the landscape, where one looks out but is also exposed. The third volume – ‘The Tower’ – takes the visitor up spiral stairs to a platform almost 59 ft (18 meters) above the ground, where one is rewarded with a spectacular view over the trees towards the Baltic Sea. “Kivik Pavilions” is a project that combines architecture with art and design. Fundamental are issues of environmental solutions, a symbiosis of the landscape and the pavilion, and corporate partnership with industries in the region. The 2007 pavilion, called ‘Mother Ship’, was designed by Norwegian architects Snohetta, in conjunction with the photographer Tom Sandberg.

Situated in London, UK, Florida Street (2016) by Paper House Project. This former garment factory in Bethnal Green had previously been used as a commercial office before being converted into a large open plan live/work unit nearly ten years ago. The challenge: how to retain the open plan arrangement whilst creating defined spaces and adding a second bedroom. By opening up the enclosed stairwell and incorporating the vertical circulation into the central atrium, we were able to add space, light, and volume to the main living areas. Glazing is used throughout to bring natural light deeper into the floor plan, with obscured glass panels creating privacy for the fully refurbished bathrooms and bedrooms. The glazed atrium visually connects both floors whilst separating public and private spaces.

 

The industrial aesthetic of the original building has been preserved with a bespoke stainless steel kitchen, open metal staircase and exposed steel columns, complemented by the new metal-framed atrium glazing, and poured concrete resin floor.

Located in Tunuyán, Argentina, Evans House (2014) by A4ESTUDIO. The vineyard landscape in the Andes Mountains is subtle, we must rise over the vegetation line to get the views of the valley and the Andes mountains. The project is a prism that sits in a basement. The natural landscape of Uco`s Valley, framed by the Andes, gets culturalized with the vineyards plots. It is extensive. It invites us to contemplate, to breathe … to stay …Working in such a context is a challenge, but a great responsibility as well. The project resulting from this process should meet the spirit of this natural background, be part of it … The project is designed with the logic of the hollowed trunk. From the inside, space concentrates the west and east views. The exterior coated in rusty metal dialogues with the cultural landscape of vineyards … while the inside is coated with natural wood. The basement is built with local river stones, their colors dialogue with the mineral and arid natural landscape.

 

 


 

On top of the basement, the house arranges the diurnal areas, placing the viewer in a dominant position, framing views of the landscape. The research focuses on the relation between the project and the landscape where it sits. A process that goes from the dominant landscape and the constructed element in contact with the natural soil, to get shelter and perceive the dominant views.
