housesar37

As usual, Nico Ven Der Meulen have just delivered a beautiful residence in South Africa, I had to share it with you.

From the Architects:

Designed by the highly acclaimed Werner van der Meulen, House Sar encapsulates luxury, comfort and functionality in a minimalist architectural setting. The clients approached Nico van der Meulen Architects with a modest single storey pitched roof house.

Limited views and access to the garden resulted in the rooms beings dark, and thus the clients main request was to transform this house into a light-filled open plan contemporary home. Ensuring that every room was naturally lit became the challenge for Werner van der Meulen, but one he proved could be done.

A framework of steel columns and beams surround the entrance while louvered planes conceal the four garages and floating roofs. It’s as if each plane whether wall, roof or floor has been intentionally treated differently either in material, texture or colour creating a unique entrance design.

ML Residence by Gantous Architects | Residential Design

ml_081014_01

Located in Mexico City, this modern 1000 sq. m residence was designed by Gantous Architects.The secret to having a rich volume is to know how to incorporate several finishes yet still look polished and pulled together. This is exactly how the design was tackled here. My favorite part, however, was the indoor garden. scroll below to check the remaining photos.

On another note, do you think the architects could have Lebanese origins?

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.
