Bear House for Be@rbrick Collectors by Onion Company

Very unusual and interesting project, called Bear House, was realized by the architects of the Onion Company. The house in Cha-Am Beach, Thailand, is built as a tribute to the collectible Bearbrick toy series, produced by the Japanese company Medicom Toy Incorporated. The owners of the house – Sittawat Sahawat and Nipapat Sahawat – are the Thai Be@rbrick collectors. Earlier the house looked as a three-storey building, which needed to be renovated. Now the house looks more like a larger version of the exhibition pavilion of the collectible bears, suitable for human habitation at the same time. An exclusive wardrobe, consisting of many levels and filled with tiny ladders, was designed especially for the collection. The British fashion designer Vivian Westwood and Stash have painted the big bears on the walls of the living-room and of the terrace.

Down the Slope: the House in Odemira by Vitor Vilhena Architects

The house is located in Estate of Arrifóias, Odemira, Alentejo. The landscape of the area is known for its specific features. Despite the beautiful natural surroundings, the client had to find the right solution to build a house of 175 square meters on the site of uncomfortable topography. The solution was put into practice by Vitor Vilhena Architects. The building was erected along the road down the hill. The volumetry of the house was adapted to the natural topography by adding steps and staircases where it was possible. As the result the building consists of two volumes developed in “L” shape. To provide enough daylight and to prevent the overheating of the building at the same time, the southern facade of the building has fewer windows, which have been reduced in size. Through parking-zone provides a visual connection with the courtyard and swimming pool area. The main finishing material for the interior design is the tiles of “warm” colors, contrasting with the creamy white walls. The whole project was undertaken without sacrificing the natural elements.
