S-House-by-Yuusuke-Karasawa-Architects-10

As ‘unlivable’ as this space looks, you can’t but appreciate the strength of the architecture and daring openness of the house. Designed by Yuusuke Karasawa Architects and known as the S House, according to the Coolist: it is built for an academic client, one who has spent his years studying the networking of space and nature, and how humans interface with the space around them. The design of this home is a practice in the client’s studies, a philosophical execution of his life’s work.

The first and most obvious dilemma in such a space is that there is almost no privacy whatsoever except probably in the bathroom. But then again, this is home to someone who is unconventional in his views.

Video of Antoni Gaudi’s Basilica Completed | History and Architecture

Whenever you speak of Spain’s architecture, almost always the Sagrada Famila Basilica by Antoni Gaudi is brought up. A lovely video was featured on Dezeen last week showing a simulation of what it will look like when done. The plan is to have it finished by 2026, i.e. 100 years after the death of its architect.

I find it fascinating that until this date an ancient basilica is still being built. Imagine all the developments this beautiful structure has witnessed.

tulahouse08

Tula House is located on a remote island, at the edge of a cliff, 44 feet above the Pacific Ocean. The topography of the site is highly irregular; the prospects diverse. Views to the east stretch over the open water and islands of the Strait of Georgia to the mountain ranges on the mainland of British Columbia. Views to the south overlook a small tidal basin. Moss covered basalt hills are interspersed among treed expanses and richly vegetated crevices, valleys and swales. Stands of red alder and big-leafed maple enliven the predominantly dark fir forest. The beach below the house is littered with the flotsam and jetsam of the ocean where logs and rocks have been tossed around by the tides and storms like a child’s game of “pickup sticks”. One site is actually many sites.
