The Summer house is located on the coast of Vestfold in the southern part of Norway. The house replaces an older building at the site. To get the planning permit, the project had to be well adjusted to the terrain, both in terms of shape, scale, material and color. Save this picture!© Nils Petter DaleThe house and terraces are partly built upon existing stone walls, the parts of the walls which are new are made of stones from the blasting at the site. Save this picture!© Nils Petter DaleThe low elongated volume is cut into to allow for wind shielded outdoor areas, embraced by the house itself. These cuts also bring down the scale of the building, and together with the local variations of the section, make the building relate to the surrounding cliff formations.

The house is clad with Kebony wood, a sustainable process of treating the wood to allow for good durability towards the exposure to salt water.Save this picture!© Nils Petter DaleProject gallerySee allShow lessIn Progress: 1111 Lincoln Road / Herzog & de MeuronArticlesVadabus Square and St. Paul Church / Ginseng ChickenArticles Share Architects: JVA Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeJVAOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesNorwayPublished on November 10, 2009Cite: “Summer House Vestfold 2 / JVA” 10 Nov 2009.

Photographs: Luigi MancaText description provided by the architects. The building is located in the city of Quartu S. Elena: a conurbation a few miles away from Cagliari. Despite the municipal development plan classifies the site as part of an area characterized by a consolidated fabric, the construction activities, mostly aimed at the construction of family houses and small apartment buildings, has produced in the nineties signs of transformation of the urban fabric. Incidents of illegal, poor quality control, reduced maintenance on existing buildings, the street and adjacent neighborhoods make a pleasant environment in terms of architecture and urban planning certainly not unattractive.Save this picture!© Luigi MancaThe site was previously occupied by a house whose postwar construction patio structure was inspired by the historical typology of rural homes south of Sardinia: the “house campidanese”. The low quality of construction and architecture of the building led to its demolition and the creation of a new volume in the system is determined by the memory-traces of the original. The building, which houses five apartments and a small office, is aligned on the street line and is designed with a “L” shape. The entrances of the apartments are located in the courtyard, which, though borrowed from the traditional building type, evolves to suit the contemporary use of collective housing. Save this picture!© Luigi MancaThe strict building regulations have significantly affected the main design choices, including the obligation of the vertical road openings and placement of volumes in lot. The project therefore, in dealing with the building regulations, plays on the use of the materials used in the main facade (plaster and concrete slabs of corten steel cladding). The corten surface is the element that leads from the courtyard, according to a logic of continuity and it is not interrupted by external staircase positioned slightly detached from the building.Save this picture!© Luigi MancaProject gallerySee allShow lessTrangtien Street / Studio 8ArticlesIn Progress: 8 House / BIGArticlesProject locationAddress:Cagliari, ItalyLocation to be used only as a reference.

Perched on a steep hill overlooking a quiet country town in South Australia, the Angaston Pavilion is a modest family weekender. Designed to the strict principals of Murcutt-modernism – careful siting, truth to materials, and expressed sustainability – the three-bedroom house sits lightly behind a spectacular gum tree, with the structure’s body facing north, using the large foliage as protection from the western sun. With a minimalist palette tied closely to the former stone quarry at the top of the hill, the building echoes its surroundings while remaining open to the views on all sides.

Projects ArchDaily United Kingdom Year: AD Classics: Robin Hood Gardens / Alison and Peter Smithson “COPY” Save this picture!Written by Sofia Balters Share “COPY” Text description provided by the architects. Robin Hood Gardens is a social housing complex in East London in the residential area of Poplar. It was designed by architects Alison and Peter Smithson and completed in 1972. The Brutalist buildings stand as an example of the Smithsons’ theories in practice. Practices that today face an uncertain future. Save this picture!Robin Hood Gardens was built in post-war Britain when residential towers were being built as a symbol of progress after the war. Many were developed with concrete in the Brutalist style including Robin Hood Gardens and the nearby Balfron Tower.Save this picture!Photo by Chris Guy – http://www.flickr.com/photos/pixelhut/Built within a decade of one another, the two buildings stand today with one major difference. The Balfron Tower’s status as a listed building protects it from demolition as an important architectural work, whereas Robin Hood Gardens has been denied.Save this picture!Photo by Steve Cadman – http://www.flickr.com/photos/stevecadman/By the 1970s British architects Alison and Peter Smithson had established themselves as leaders in post-war architecture. They had built a handful of their designs prior to Robin Hood Gardens, including the Economist Building, and were well know theorists. The Smithsons’ preached modern architecture designed with low cost, and easily available materials. Save this picture!Photo by John Levett – http://www.flickr.com/photos/joseph_beuys_hat/They were categorized as Brutalists, and sought for each building to be designed according to its location and its use. From these ideals also came their utilitarian aesthetic, reflecting all of these conditions in their buildings’ form.Save this picture!Photo by rb. fzz – http://www.flickr.com/photos/rbfzz/Robin Hood Gardens was built with panels of pre-cast concrete and is comprised of two horizontal structures which include a total of 213 apartments. There are one and two story apartments in both buildings, which bend slightly inwards, hugging the urban garden between them. In order to allow in more southern light, one of the buildings is ten stories high, while the other is seven stories.Save this picture!Photo by Amanda Vincent-Rous – http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/The garden is the center includes a rising hill created by the remnants from construction. This communal space for the residents is an essential part of Robin Hood Gardens for the Smithsons who were intent on improving people’s lives through design. Robin Hood Gardens was seen as their chance to prove this vision for progressive social housing.Save this picture!Photo by nothingtoseehere – http://www.flickr.com/photos/nothingtoseehere/Another example of the Smithsons’ social intentions is integrated through the concept of “streets in the sky.” Every third level of the buildings includes a wide concrete balcony jutting off towards the center of the site, overlooking the garden. The balconies are wide enough for multiple people to walk and for children to play. They were proposed by the Smithsons as a new neighborhood street for these housing units.Save this picture!Photo by John Levett – http://www.flickr.com/photos/joseph_beuys_hat/From the beginning, Robin Hood Gardens has been at the center of a debate concerning its success. Initially, structural issues raised the cost of the building. Once lived in, critics blamed crime within the buildings on the Smithsons’ design, but there have been many issues contributing to the less than ideal conditions of Robin Hood Gardens today. Save this picture!A serious denial in upkeep has made the apartments less desirable places to live, and developers are eager to demolish the buildings in order to expand their own visions of the future. If London intends to keep Robin Hood Gardens it will need to invest in renovations to liven the building, but renovations would come at a much lower cost than the current plan to demolish it.Save this picture!Photo by John Levett – http://www.flickr.com/photos/joseph_beuys_hat/No matter the final outcome, Robin Hood Gardens embodies Alison and Peter Smithsons’ vision for a new form of social housing. With both successes and failures within its concrete walls, the Smithsons’ radical vision will always exist within Robin Hood Gardens. It is an undeniably important piece of Great Britain’s architectural history and a monument of British modernism.Save this picture!Photo by Chris Skovgaard – http://www.flickr.com/photos/chrskovgaard/Project gallerySee allShow lessBusan Opera House Proposal / PRAUDArticlesScottsdale Museum of the West / Jones StudioArticlesProject locationAddress:London, EnglandLocation to be used only as a reference.

The house was designed for a young couple and their daughter and is situated on the outskirts of Nicosia. The house falls into the category of ‘half plots’ where two distinct residences are constructed in the same plot and share a wall, also allowing for a three meter setback on the plot’s periphery.Save this picture!© Marios Christodoulides, Christos PapantoniouRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System – LINEAWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesDoorsLinvisibileLinvisibile Curved Hinged Door | AlbaDoorsLonghiDoor – HeadlineThe interplay between indoors and outdoors within the residence, as well as the variable relationship between the house and the neighborhood, are themes investigated in this project. A system of sliding perforated metal panels on the street facade, retractable shading devices on the upper floor as well as curtains on the ground floor can determine the house’s relationship with the street but also between the different functions within the residence. A seemingly impenetrable shell during the day can be undone at nighttime when street traffic is limited, thus opening up a different relationship with the neighborhood. Thus, the curb and the street can become the front courtyard of the house.Save this picture!© Marios Christodoulides, Christos PapantoniouThe living area, kitchen, and circulation areas surround the outside courtyard on three sides. This allows for visual contact and movement between the different spaces and encourages the integration of outdoor space into the occupants’ daily life. The kitchen protrudes into the yard, thus creating a communal center, surrounded by the courtyard space. The courtyard is also enveloped by the upper floor which contains the master bedroom and their circulation corridor. The overhanging bedrooms provide peripheral shading around the kitchen, thus creating a more effective relationship between indoor and outdoor spaces.Save this picture!© Marios Christodoulides, Christos PapantoniouThe living room located on the southern road boundary, creates an intermediate space between the public street and the courtyard within the house. The living space can be enclosed or it can function as a transition space between the road and the courtyard. A two-story high entrance space allows southern sunlight into the ground floor common spaces as well as the master bedroom.
