Contemporary Property Designs – Latest Houses
New Properties – latest additions to this page, from V-Z, arranged chronologically:
Villa S, Upper Austria – 22 Aug 2013
Design: TWO IN A BOX Architects
photo : Simon Bauer
The villa is L-shaped and aligned to the south-west featuring generous glazing to the porch in front of the house and a garden with water areas. The light hill-side location, the expanded ground floor facing the street and the carport form a generous forecourt and entrance hall.
Wind Vault House, Singapore – 20 Aug 2013
Design: Wallflower Architecture + Design
photo : Jeremy San
As the brief was substantial, the overall form of the house needed to be pushed to the envelope limits. Naturally, there are also other considerations; the context and proximity of neighbouring homes, the daily sun path and the prevailing winds. Conceptually, the house is a raised reinforced concrete tube whose open ends are oriented in a general north-south direction.
The Wall House, Singapore – 20 Aug 2013
Design: FARM, Architects
photo : Bryan van der Beek and Edward Hendricks
This is a tale of two houses – similar looking, yet independent and coming together to form a coherent whole. The two blocks sit on a sprawling piece of land, belonging respectively to the retired parents and one of their children.
Villa 4.0, Naarden, The Netherlands – 26 Jun 2013
Design: Dick van Gameren
photo : Pedro Kok
The principle guiding the architects for this new intervention was to create a house that is sustainable and to reinstate the lost relationship between the house and the landscape. The first step was to preserve as much as possible of the existing house, limiting both the amount of waste and of new materials.
West Lake Hills Residence, Austin, Texas, USA – 17 May 2013
Design: Specht Harpman
photo: Taggart Sorensen
On a densely tree-covered site in the Austin, Texas exurb of West Lake Hills, Specht Harpman was tasked with the renovation and expansion of a modest 1970’s house. Much of the original internal structure was maintained, but the alterations sought to erase all visible traces of the original house.
Weekend House, Kovagoszolos, Hungary – 4 Jul 2013
Design: Borsos Ágnes
photo : Akos Matetelki
The capital element of the architectural concept was to keep in respect that scale of order, while adding the natural terrace system to its functions of today’s life complements. Modern materials were used, with the aim to ensure sustainability; the substances were weatherproof and time resistant. The concrete construction, the metal sheet coverings all provided proper protection against local extreme climate conditions.
Villa W, Frankfurt, Germany – 4 Apr 2013
Design: Ian Shaw Architekten
image from architect
This white, monolithic house will reside in a suburb of Frankfurt. From the street it will appear impenetrable, so delineating a clear demarcation between the public and private realms.The building’sfront elevation is articulated as a series of windowless blocks, its recessed entranceway the only glazed element of its north facing façade.
Zero Energy House, Lokeren, Belgium – 31 Jan 2013
Design: BLAF Architecten
photo : Stijn Bollaert
26 Feb 2013 – The allotment creates a condition that is both generic and specific, context and non-text. The house deals with this condition in an apparently indifferent way, whilst in fact it is questioning the allotment: it is reformulating the concept of the front, side and back facade by addressing the surroundings in equivalent ways, and it is consciously leaving any kind of fencing behind.
New Property in Thailand – 20 Jan 2013
photo : Spaceshift Studio
21 Jan 2013 – As a house, the function areas of living room, dining room, and service are supporters for the private areas of bedrooms. The bedrooms are like the boat which the river is supporting underneath for sailing. The idea was developed into the building orientation by maintaining the basic elements but completely reveal the story, functions and context.
Whale House, Toronto, Canada – 16 Oct 2012
Design: Atelier Reza Aliabadi > rzlbd
photo : borXu Design
The Whale house is another spatial experiment by rzlbd, a monochromic contemporary manifesto that evolves around a central detached box painted in red standing free inside a three storey height foyer. The building appears to have swallowed the box symbolizing the contemplation space inside the spacious jaw of the whale that swallowed Jonah.
Winged House, Singapore – 10 Oct 2012
Architect: K2LD Architects Pte Ltd
photo : Patrick Bingham Hall
A private family residence situated on a uniquely shaped triangular plot, the Winged House frames the site with two prominent forms – the trapeziums. These forms open towards the main view at the back of the site where 3 existing majestic palms are, and of lush greenery. These embracing forms carve out and frame a middle garden for friendly and private gatherings.
Villas in Mallorca, Balearic Islands, Spain – 4 Sep 2012
photograph from architects
The construction consists of a cubic volume that is placed in the plot in order to release surface in the south zone where the swimming pool is located. Open spaces are designed, with great openings to the outside based on the orientation to the sun. This way, the relation between the interior and the outside is present from any point of the dwelling.
V4 House, São Paulo, Brazil
Architecture: studio mk27 – marcio kogan + renata furlanetto. Interiors: studio mk27 – diana radomysler
photograph : Nelson Kon
With each new project contemporary architecture is forced to optimize spaces and use the maximum of each square meter of the site. V4 House is a rare anti-example. Its occupation of the land is very far from the maximum coefficient. Laws allow for much larger constructions. The solution adopted, however, dialogues with the dimension of the site, formulating an adequate relation between the scale of the construction and the site.
