Stunning "Earth House" Appears to Be Built into the Ground

Stunning "Earth House" Appears to Be Built into the Ground | jpiarchitektai | Scoop.it

The Earth House Project is a visualized single family home that appears as if it’s built into the ground. Proposed by the Kosovan firm Molos Group, images show a modern space that’s surrounded by lush, green space that intermingles with the building. 

Molos Group explains, “The position of the house is in the midst of nature, far away the busy streets of Tirana. The house was projected that way, to be by all means in touch with nature.”

Depending on the vantage point, the ground reveals and obscures the structure from different angles. The large glazed surfaces deliver ample sunlight to the living areas, and it brings even more natural beauty into the home...

Borrowing From The Rich Personality of Its Surroundings: Pobble House in England

Borrowing From The Rich Personality of Its Surroundings: Pobble House in England | jpiarchitektai | Scoop.it

Pobble House is an original looking timber frame residence paying tribute to the qualities and architectural history of its special location in Ashford, Kent, England: “Owing to the site’s significance, local planning policy dictates that any new building must replace an existing one and is to be of similar scale and proportion to that of the original. To this end a material palette was chosen that would enhance with age. Whilst being designed to a tight budget, the building has a very high quality and robust nature to withstand the harsh climate”, explained the team at Guy Hollaway Architects.

22 Modern Shipping Container Homes Around the World

22 Modern Shipping Container Homes Around the World | jpiarchitektai | Scoop.it

With a little bit of imagination (and a lot work), some talented architects have succeeded in designing dwellings made of shipping containers, ranging from off-the-grid guest homes to full time single family homes.

 

Shipping Container homes have their pros and cons: they are durable and eco-friendly, usually more cost-effective to build than conventional construction, and pre-fab modules can be easily transported by truck. But they also must be well insulated and sealed, as the steel conducts heat and can easily rust.

 

Here are 22 of the best modern shipping container houses built around the world to consider...

How a Green-Roofed School is Educating the Next Generation of Innovators

How a Green-Roofed School is Educating the Next Generation of Innovators | jpiarchitektai | Scoop.it

Marcel Sembat High School in Sotteville-lès-Rouen, France by Archi5 is an example of how architecture uses technology in surprising ways. 

Part of a larger rehabilitation of the high school, the new workshop building features a series of linear bars, each with a sloped green roof. Small patios between these volumes open to create skylights, with daylight entering through large windows created by the offset of the linear volumes, illuminating the large workshops.

The environmental technology in the building is mostly passive. Located on a site between a park and the city with a large, the north-facing facade opens up to city views, while the southern side has smaller windows shaded by overhangs. The difference between the two heights creates the shape of the building, while the green roof helps deflect wind and creates a low-maintenance green plaza.

So so so Green! 

Judit Urquijo's curator insight, June 4, 2014 5:25 AM

Este sorprendente proyecto se localiza en las proximidades de la ciudad de Rouen, al NO de París. 


Obra del estudio de arquitectura francés Archi5 en colaboración con B. Huidobro, ha sido premiado en el certamen Architizer A+ Awards de 2014 en la categoría de "Tipología". 


Como se puede observar en la imagen adjunta, su principal características es el techo verde con el que se ha cubierto el edificio destinado a la enseñanza de mecánica. La integración con un cercano parque urbano es impresionante.


La comunidad bonaerense de arquitectura y diseño Arqa se hizo eco de este proyecto en 2011, incluyendo en su entrada imágenes de algunos de los planos. En los mismos se puede apreciar que uno de los principales escollos que se tuvieron que salvar fue la calle que divide los distintos edificios de los que se compone el liceo. No obstante, el problema se solucionó con la construcción de un edificio-puente.
