The Courtyard House / Associated Architects

April 17, 2021 Andreas Luco 0

The Courtyard house is illustrative, where we tried to reflect back into our traditional courtyard houses with modern intervention where the dialogue between the spaces and activities revolves around the courtyard, which we refer to as the heart of the house. The space is designed based on square form derived out of nine squares. The long central axis leads to the direct vision across the house from the gate allowing nature to flow inside. From a partially square plan with a 22 meter front facade length, one of its edges provides privacy in relation to the neighbours & the other three sides generously open to the landscapes. The elevation of the house strikes a modern & contemporary note in an urban milieu.

House 24 / Park + Associates

April 17, 2021 Cristobal Rojas 0

In a usual circumstance, the front of the house is the most important – not in our case. House 24 is sited on a triangular plot, a constraint that we took on as an opportunity to really engage with the siting and planning of the house – to achieve a meaningful footprint that actualised the client’s spatial, functional, and privacy requirement. Moreover, the site adjoins a lushly landscaped state land that we endeavoured to take advantage of at every available opportunity and every habitable space.

Juniper House / Murman Arkitekter

April 17, 2021 Cristian Aguilar 0

This house is more than a weekend cottage. This house is an experiment. You approach it via a cul-de-sac that ends in a sheep fence towards the open moor. There is a grove of high junipers and a couple of white plastered houses visible. Embedded in a glade 5 meters to the right lies Juniper House. The house is barely visible, like a mirror of its own surroundings.

The Birdhouses / Werkt Studio

April 17, 2021 Andreas Luco 0

This house from the ’80s is located inside a residential area on the outskirts of Copenhagen. The family of 5 not only needed more but also better spaces, so they came to us for an extension and a renovation of their home. What first inspired the project was the placement of the house, oriented towards the south, looking over a lake and surrounded by nature. After trying various volumes and shapes for the extension, we came up with this succession of Birdhouses that decrease in size as you moved away from the main house. The idea was to divide the entire house into different houses allowing their children to visit and stay without disturbing the natural flow and functionality of the house.
