David has lived since 5 years in the wood, and spent $4,600 in material costs + 1000 to 1500 man hours to complete this house. Living with the natural world and staying away from the noise and the contamination could be closer than you think, you’ll only need a chainsaw, a hammer, and a chisel....
Green architecture, or durable construction, has the goal of using nature in a better way, without harming it. A green building has its own life cycle, encompassing everything- from rough construction to the smallest detail, following the laws of comfort and rationality. Passive houses are like living creatures; they are oxygen powered- upon taking in air, they process it, releasing the used air to the outside, keeping the temperature inside steady and disallowing the formation of moisture in the process.

The building is an old four-story apartment in the city center, facing the fate of being torn down and rebuilt. Amidst the anticipation of city renewal, the façade of a series of adjoining “shop houses” conveys the desolation of fading glory. A group of designers pursuing innovation, created a fantastic view, filled with a sharp contrast. Soft and permeable nets bend and flex along the currents of wind and impacts of rain and with versatility actually present varied “postures” in a humble fashion. The irregular arrangement of the fence nets partition the monotone windows that mark the horizontal dimension, and the flickering lights of our hard-working partners twinkle in the night, echoing the challenges of metropolitan life. The design team works like dedicated farmers in the greenhouse nurturing the organic forces of life.
Designed for a tiny urban lot, the narrow building by Nishizawa might easily be mistaken for some sort of mysterious vertical garden. “With no true facade, all that emerges in the anonymous front are the from bottom to top: the living room and kitchen on the ground floor, followed by the first bedroom on the floor above, moving on to a bathroom, then to a second bedroom, and finally to the roof-terrace, where a tiny room is located, used either as a guest room or extra storage.
Madison, WI-based artist and woodworker Ted Lott created this series of small house frames out of wood while in residency at the Anderson Ranch Art Center in Colorado. A nice comment on the role of traditional craft in the modern world.
Designed for a photographer and a writer as a multi-purpose space for painting, drawing, writing, photography, creative dreaming, holiday meals, small workshops, and overflow guests, this 864 SF building with porch and terraced extensions frames the top of the hill above a small existing dwelling. Metal siding, used to better protect the shaded north side, wraps the east end of the house at the transition to the porch-covered entry and wood board-and-batten used on the rest of the walls. Large, colorful wall panels at the interior serve as accents for the otherwise white walls and open to reveal work spaces. The large, light-filled primary space, with polished concrete floors and a ceiling painted blue between exposed wood framing, adapts easily to the changing uses.
One salvaged door wasn't enough for this installation artist, who transformed this multi-storey structure into an eccentric landmark with 1,000 doors.
Using salvaged building materials like doors in your next building project is a good idea, but South Korean installation artist Choi Jeong-Hwa takes it to a whole new level. Using 1,000 recycled doors, Choi Jeong-Hwa transformed an otherwise nondescript, 10-storey facade into a eye-dazzling delight of colours and textures.
