The house is located in a small village in the area of Lyon on a very steep slope and facing an open landscape. It is situated on the fringe of a natural reservation where no house can be built.The building of the house was very complex for various reasons:- it was very difficult to get the authorization to build contemporary architecture on that location.Save this picture!Recommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornDoorsRabel Aluminium SystemsMinimal Sliding Door – Rabel 62 Slim Super ThermalWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensWindowsJansenWindows – Janisol Primo- building was difficult also because there was no way to access the lower part of the building site so that it was necessary to find a compromise with the neighbour for him to allow the building of a path going along his own terrain.- I made the external wood curtain myself which required more than 200 hours of work.The house is a 23m x 7m parallelepiped, made of concrete, steel and glass, embedded in the slope of the terrain.It is composed of two floors which both have direct access to the garden.The structure is made both in concrete and steel. All the materials are natural and untreated for them to keep their original aspect. Concrete is used for the envelope and the floors; steel is used for the pillars and for the window frames ; and untreated exotic wood (iroko) is used for the external curtain.Save this picture!All the rooms are exposed to daylight. A large opening in the floor of the first storey enables daylight to reach the groundfloor.The wood curtain is the specificity of the house. It is composed of shapes that have been named ‘biscuits’ by the first French magazine who published the house. I found the name was appropriate and I decided to keep it.- it helps the house integrate in the landscape where local houses are built in beige stone. From a distance the curtain reminds, in a contemporary way, of the traditional assembly of stones.- it also has a thermal role as it reduces the impact of the sun in the bedrooms in the morning. This is important as those rooms face the East and have windows covering the whole façade.- it finally enables to visually insulate the bedrooms from the outside as by creating a mirror effect between the curtain and the window pane.Save this picture!The bedrooms are upstairs and the ‘day’ rooms are downstairs. The groundfloor is lined with windows going from floor to ceiling in order to enjoy the landscape all day long.In the living-room huge French windows (8m x 3m) open on the garden so that you have the feeling that the garden is part of the house; there is a sensation of continuity between inside and outsideWithin the house there is also a sensation of uninterrupted continuity as the heaviest and most cumbersome elements (the fireplace and the stairway) are suspended over the floor.The fireplace, both cumbersome and light, acts as a separation between the living-room and the music-room. It is made in steel and is partially filled with refractory concrete providing thermal inertia and heating comfort.The suspended stairway was built without risers for maximum daylight to go through and not to block the view.Project gallerySee allShow lessORDOS 100 #9: Sou FujimotoArticlesRefuge Pavilion / Francisco Portugal e GomesSelected Projects Share Biscuit House / AUM Pierre MinassianSave this projectSaveBiscuit House / AUM Pierre Minassian ArchDaily Biscuit House / AUM Pierre Minassian Year: 2008 “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/11478/biscuit-house-aum Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeAUM Pierre MinassianOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLyonHousesWoodFrancePublished on January 12, 2009Cite: “Biscuit House / AUM Pierre Minassian” 12 Jan 2009.

Repair of the Axis The neighborhood has topographical characteristics of a basin. Thus, directions of the house were open to centrifugal or right angles. When I climbed the roof, a road came to view. The road was coiled as if it was an unknown entity drawn in the sky over the numerous houses lined on the edge of the road connecting Ansan and Seongsan. Save this picture!© Park Young-chaeRecommended ProductsWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsWoodAccoyaAccoya® Cladding, Siding & FacadesWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensI decided the route is a subjective meridian for closing or opening houses and substituting directions dividing windows, the entrance, stairway and floor to it. The layout of lighting, direction of wood material on the floor, flow of the fence surrounding the house and main entrance were created in accordance with the axis. Save this picture!© Park Young-chaeMeanwhile, there is a window that does not follow the axis. It is an east window in the living room on the second floor. In front of the low and long window which allows people to see the view outside the window when sitting on the floor lies a dark pond roughly the same size as the window. The pond reflects the color of the dawning sky from the direction of Ansan on the ceiling of the second floor. It was about in May. Save this picture!© Park Young-chaeAs the repair work was heading towards completion, we gathered together in the living room. Some were delighted at the shadow of water reflected on the ceiling, and some were busy comparing the renovated house with previous features. Then, someone said, I feel a wind breeze inside but I’m not sure where it is coming from. It is strange because there is no wind outside. As I heard the person saying, I hit upon a word: “Manifestation of an axis.” –Kim Jae-kwan Save this picture!© Park Young-chaeProject gallerySee allShow less2011 Roberts Memorial Delineation CompetitionArticlesVideo: Virgin America and Gensler offer Behind-the-Scenes look at SFO T2Articles Share Architects: Moohoi Architecture Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” CopyAbout this officeMoohoi ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationHousesSouth KoreaPublished on September 27, 2011Cite: “zeep-soori of Professor Kim’s House / Moohoi Architecture” 27 Sep 2011.

The Spa House is separated from the principal residence by a berm, and is connected to it by foot paths.Save this picture!site planThe brief called for a place of entertainment and relaxation both for the client and his occasional guests, who would also be accommodated there. It incorporates swimming pools, guest accommodation, spa facilities and general living and poolside areas. The house is conceived of as a hovering set of elements, suspended over a large waterscape, which forms an extended terrace on the mountainside.Save this picture!Courtesy of metropolis designWater constitutes the primary experience of the building. The floor planes are arranged to provide contrasting experiences of water, and the underwater spa with large viewing windows into the pool has a sense of stillness and mystery. The guest accommodation block hovers dramatically over the water and projects into space towards the mountain and sea. The dining area is submerged below water level, and pool decks are arranged as islands in a sea of water, connected by a bridge.Save this picture!sketchThe building masses are arranged in a dynamic composition, across and counter to the contours of the landscape. The building acts as a windbreak, protecting the pool from the south-easterly winds raking down the mountainside in summer. The ground floor opens up entirely to the landscape and the interior and exterior finishes are continuous, to minimise the distinction between inside and outside and enhance the experience of the building as a light platform in a vast landscape. Formally, the building comprises a number of separate sculptural forms in a dynamic composition. The base of the building, incorporating pools, relaxation rooms and guest accommodation is entirely of concrete. The superstructure is of steel construction, which is clad in afromosia shiplap boards on timber studwork.Save this picture!Courtesy of metropolis designProject gallerySee allShow lessVideo: Le Corbusier’s Chapel Notre-Dame du HautArticlesCilandak Bisnis Square (CIBIS) Masterplanning Project / Broadway MalyanArticles Share ArchDaily South Africa ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/201692/spa-house-metropolis-design Clipboard “COPY” CopyHouses•Cape Town, South Africa Save this picture!Courtesy of metropolis design+ 14 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/201692/spa-house-metropolis-design Clipboard 2011 CopyAbout this officeMetropolis DesignOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCape TownHousesSouth AfricaPublished on January 23, 2012Cite: “Spa House / Metropolis Design” 23 Jan 2012.

The house is nestled in a beautifully private setting surrounded with large Puriri trees, Blackwoods and other natives. The building form is elevated for flood protection, and acknowledges the hill to the west, lifting towards it’s elevation. The living zone opens completely to this setting, and the timber exoskeleton references the surrounding trees. The bedrooms all have protected outdoor space, being closely located to the trees for increased privacy. The house is located to protect the existing vegetation and to make the most of the sun and the native bird life on the property. Save this picture!© Simon DevittBeing on Great Barrier Island, the building also needed to be sustainable – the following abstract from an e-mail received from the Clients refers to this point: “The outdoor room is a place we spend much of our time, eating, reading, doing homework and siesta-ing; but the feeling of being indoors on those hot summer days with all doors open is also fantastic. Save this picture!Not cold enough (owing to that great low E glass and good design) for fires yet – we have had 2 only for ambience, not heat. “It is an astonishingly decadent feeling lying in a bath of free water, heated by the sun, pumped by solar power. Free as anything! Hot water gets up to 68 degrees in the tank from the sun, and has to be cooled to come out the tap. “With 9 staying and all the laptops, music, washing etc we’ve only run the generator 3 times ever. All the irrigation systems do clever things. So it’s more than a PC nod to sustainability, as you know from all our fussing about timbers and paints.”Save this picture!© Simon DevittProject gallerySee allShow lessCholula Student Housing / BNKR ArquitecturaArticlesRe-Thinking Shanghai Proposal / Vinícius Philot, Fabiano Ravaglia and Gibran DuarteArticles Share CopyHouses•Great Barrier Island, New Zealand Great Barrier House / Crosson Clarke Carnachan ArchitectsSave this projectSaveGreat Barrier House / Crosson Clarke Carnachan Architects Save this picture!© Simon Devitt+ 20 Share ArchDaily Great Barrier House / Crosson Clarke Carnachan Architects Houses “COPY” “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/244604/great-barrier-house-crosson-clarke-carnachan-architects Clipboard New Zealand CopyAbout this officeCrosson Clarke Carnachan ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesGreat Barrier IslandNew ZealandPublished on June 18, 2012Cite: “Great Barrier House / Crosson Clarke Carnachan Architects” 18 Jun 2012.

It also has three interior patios of different sizes which separate the common area from the private area.Save this picture!© Jaime NavarroThe volume of the building moved in an “L” shape to its patio, where corridors, balconies and terraces are created, community spaces that are considered as places of relationship of the condominium and intermediate areas between the exterior and the interior space.Save this picture!© Jaime NavarroThe facade facing the street of Schultz composed of a double skin of red concrete and apparent red wall, is more sculptural, monolithic, like posters, to avoid the passage of direct light and grant privacy. Besides that it works as acoustic insulation against street noise. The interior facades are composed of red enameled partition and floor to ceiling windows of black aluminum wardrobe.Save this picture!© Jaime NavarroThe project has basically 2 types of departments, the front departments with 2 bedrooms and the interior apartments with 1 bedroom.

The balconies become a spatial extension of the living-dining room, a perception that is accentuated thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows.Save this picture!© Jaime NavarroSave this picture!© Jaime NavarroThe interior route leads us through wide spaces to corners whose windows overlook small planters and the depths of intimate spaces. The exterior shape of the building, generated from this varied arrangement of spaces, is incomprehensible from the inside. However, the form is free and ductile, as if an interior force pressed the walls outward; the expansive character of the interior of the dwellings is a place for evasion and dreams.Save this picture!© Jaime NavarroProject gallerySee allShow lessWorld Trade Center Transportation Hub Oculus Designed in Remembrance of 9/11Architecture NewsAD Classics: World Trade Center / Minoru Yamasaki Associates + Emery Roth & SonsArchitecture ClassicsProject locationAddress:Miguel E.
