Laneway House Design by Superkul Inc Architect

October 10, 2013 By: archinhome Category: contemporary house design

Laneway House was designed by Superkul Inc Architect, located on a 40’x18’ lot, it is built to the property lines on 3 sides, with 2’ to spare on the fourth. Current zoning regulations don’t allow for additional openings in any of the walls, so the design strategy was to draw additional light, air and views from above. A light shaft topped by skylights runs the length of the west wall of the building, broken only by a courtyard on the second floor. The shaft brings light to the ground floor, and provides passive ventilation. On the second floor, a glass and wood wrapped courtyard separates the two bedrooms. From the courtyard, with its primary view to the sky, there is a small stair up to a roof garden. For further detail visit Laneway House Design by Superkul Inc Architect.

Private House in Berlin by David Chippervield Architect

August 11, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture, Home Design

Private House, designed by David Chippervield Architect, located in Berlin, Germany. This house, organized around a south facing courtyard overlooking a large rear garden, is situated in a leafy suburb in the sout west of Berlin. Although designed to reveal distinct sequence of rooms and to forge a clear relationship between inside and outside space, it was the building’s material that became the foremost determining element in the architecture. Enveloped entirely in brick, this skin lent the house a physical solidity reminiscent of the early modernist houses of Erich Mendelsohn and Mies vander Rohe. The irregularity of this textured, hand-make brick finish also effect a powerful contrast with the smoothness and regularity of the steel-framed glazing, so that the house really expresses differences in its own materiality.

Curve Townhouse Design by Studio ST Architect in New York

August 01, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture, Home Design

Curve Townhouse, located in New York, Designed by Studio ST Architect. Using the typical row townhouse layout the curve townhouse stands out with its curve terraces animating the front facade. The curved bench extends to the interior creating a flowing connection between inside and outside. The public stair is housed in a curved volume which is the most efficient way to comply with the New York City Code while creating a unique interior space in the apartment. The space and materials are simple. A main space is a loft-like open area with a living room, dining room and kitchen. Two bedrooms face the quiet back yard. The bathrooms are tucked between the curved stair and the supporting exposed concrete wall.
