Crescent House Design by Make Architects

July 22, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture, Home Design

Designed by Make Architects, located in Wiltshire, United Kingdom. The Crescent House exemplifies how a novel form can fulfill the requirements of a brief better than a conventional box. As a shape, the crescent is ideally suited to personal living space, because it shelters and encloses while at the same time opening out and forging a sense of connection with the exterior world. The accommodation is formed by two nested crescents connected by a curving circulation and gallery space that runs the length of the building. The outer crescent contains bedrooms, bathrooms and private living areas and turns a solid convex wall to the nearby road, while the inner crescent is devoted to cooking, eating and relaxing. A full-height concave glass wall draws the early morning sun into the house and offers an uninterrupted prospect of the garden, while the arms of the inner crescent extend to frame the view, offering privacy and enclosure without confinement.

House in Valle Escondido by Gonzalo Mardones, in Santiago, Chile

June 10, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture, Home Design

This House id designed by Gonzalo Mardones, located in Santiago, Chile.
The house adapts to topography establishing the most intense relationship with the environment, blocking itself off from the neighboring plots with mural proposal with openings directed towards the best views. The internal fa├žade, is a composition of large concrete frames and transparent windows, open to morning sun, to the light and to garden which adds privacy. The materiality, the bare concrete of all acts as unifying element. The section recognizes different activities of home, and the central hall, is the place which links the different levels with the aim of framing that landscape which one felt should not be touched.
