The design studio Jarmund Visgnaes Architects (JVA) from Norway in collaboration with Mole Architects presented the project of Dune House. Designed for relaxation, situated in a small village in Suffolk County in England, overlooking the sea this country house could accommodate up to 9 people. The house is offered for rent for everyone who wants to dive into the tranquil colorful life, the prices ranges from £ 760 for 4 nights. The mansion is like a small family hotel offering breakfast and lounge. A complicated roof geometry draws inspiration from the seaside strip of houses with an eclectic range of gables and dormer windows. A robust Design and access Statement and extensive negotiations ensured planning success.
Hughes Umbanhowar Architects has completed the Ski House H2o in Hobe Sound, Florida. The owners are very fond of water sport, namely water-skiing. That’s why, they purchased agricultural land and modified an existing artificial lake to be used for water skiing/slalom course racing. The construction consists of three parts: public area, guest zone and master bedroom. he roof design also provides shade to the lakeside terrace adjacent to the lap pool, while simultaneously capturing and directing the water-cooled breezes through the upper transom windows of the living space. To minimize costs, the architects used simple materials, such as SIP panels, concrete floor, Stucco over insulated concrete form blocks, board form concrete wall finish, aluminum clad windows. The house also features passive conditioning and rain water collection systems.
This beautiful wooden house that combines the features of a modern building and traditional parts for the countryside, was built by the architects from Linebox Studio in Ottawa. The house, called the Lighthouse, is designed for a family consisting of five persons, and has an area of just over 400 square meters. The fact, that the architects found the right combination of modern and traditional styles, allows the house blend harmoniously in the existing environment. Front facade of the house is rather closed and has only small separate windows, but the back facade, facing to the south side, provides plenty of natural light and warmth. It was made not only to protect the house from cold north winds, but also to provide the privacy of residents from outsiders.
