Made in Spain: a super cool pre-fab house

Made in Spain: a super cool pre-fab house | Residential Architecture | Scoop.it

There is a real movement towards small multipurpose sustainable homes and I just love it! This super cool pre-fab in Spain is an excellent example of the trend that was trucked in and assembled in just a day (after 4-6 weeks manufacturing). Designed by Spanish architecture studio ÁBATON the pre-fab incorporates with just 27sqm an open plan living area, master bedroom and full bathroom.

 

Although the sheep must have wondered what the heck was happening when the truck turned up, the house does blend beautifully into the rural surrounds with its muted grey palette of fibre cement cladding and lots of openings to the warm interiors paneled in Spanish Fir Tree.

Inner city Melbourne reinvention with a twist

Inner city Melbourne reinvention with a twist | Residential Architecture | Scoop.it

Often architects challenge their clients to trust them with a bold and unusual vision and this house is a case in point. While the reinvention of these twin Victorian terraces in Melbourne could have been predicable and boring, Andrew Maynard Architects obliterated that possibility with this amazing design.  


Masterminding the design involved deliberately creating two separate forms, with the original terraces at the front juxtaposing the stunning three storey cedar clad structure at the rear. A clear gap remains between the two structures, with glass infills over the space in-between. Spiral stairs interact with both the aged brick of the terrace and the new cedar, while raw steel plate and detailing defines the threshold between old and new.


Dark plywood paneling rises through the light-filled void between the structures. Mirror was used for the cabinetry in the dining area to make the space feel large while reflecting both light and the garden surroundings. Andrew Maynard Architects approach sustainability as core responsibility of any new structure and so there are many sustainable features including double glazed windows, high performance glass roofs with automated louvres, high performance insulation and solar panels.  


And I love the childlike black graphic of a house has been incorporated into the front of the cedar extension in recognition of the iconic street art of Melbourne's lane ways.

Moorish and Asian fusion for pavilion architecture

Moorish and Asian fusion for pavilion architecture | Residential Architecture | Scoop.it

This home in Austin, Texas was designed by Bercy Chen Studio to accommodate two families and consists of two pavilions connected by a glass hallway. A central water garden between the pavilions serves as a claming focal point with three sides of the house opening onto it. The walls against the sides of the property are closed, creating a courtyard layout. The two parts of the house are staggered to create a deck area in the front as well as a more private outdoor living area in the back, visually united by the translucent glass bridge.

 

The flat roofs allow for terrace spaces which creates additional outdoor areas for plants and alfresco dining.


The house is influenced by different regions and cultures. Both the use of the roof as an outdoor living space and the shading devices are derived from moorish architecture. The body of water and the spatial continuity between inside and outside was inspired by asian architecture. The structural transparency of the volumes and the minimalist aspect of the interior was derived from japanese pavilions.

 

The owners obviously love the colour blue given the extensive use of vibrant blue throughout in the interiors!

Black and bold Melbourne home design

Black and bold Melbourne home design | Residential Architecture | Scoop.it

A union of tradition and modern styling gives character to this welcoming home in Middle Park Melbourne.

 

In addition to transforming the 4 existing apartments into a single modern styled home, retaining the heritage facade was a challenge for architects Chamberlain Javens. The constraints resulted in a linking of the existing façade design and the spacious informal entertainment areas. Another facet to the flow of spaces is the black zinc box which houses the bedrooms while providing a cantilevered ground floor for the outdoor terrace and a backdrop to the steel stairs at the front of the house.

 

A continuity of interest is created by the flow of natural materials and lighting as key elements of the design. The play of lighting, shadows and texture creates an intimate family home while achieving a warm and welcoming space for guests. The architectural firm is passionate about materiality and features this in the project with the use of primarily of spotted gum cladding, black zinc cladding and travertine stone flooring. The dark and light hues of the travertine combine wonderfully with the natural light flooding through the property. The end result is a striking, dramatic and functional home for family and guests to indulge.

Architectural transformation for Rozelle pad

Architectural transformation for Rozelle pad | Residential Architecture | Scoop.it

The 'Elliott Ripper House' in Rozelle is an example of how a modest-sized home can be transformed into dramatically more functional, spacious and elegant living space. Remodeled with expertise by Christopher Polly Architect, it has been transformed into a contemporary 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom dwelling with two living spaces and improved rear and side courtyards.

 

Space has been infused into the rear ground floor with the creation of an open plan area perfect for cooking, dining and enjoyment of the nearby courtyard. Blackbutt open stairs provide vertical symmetry leading to the first floor and a cantilevered balcony creates a feeling of upward space and movement. Natural light and ventilation abounds in the Elliot Ripper House, which also features many sustainable features including recycled handrails and flooring and insulated ceilings, roof and walls.
