Casa Almare by Elias Rizo Arquitectos

Elias Rizo Arquitectos have designed the Casa Almare that we are going to be featuring today, but they have also appeared on our site with their GG House and Casa RO projects.
Casa Almare is placed on a cliff in Puerto Vallarta in Jalisco, Mexico. Its location overlooks Bahia de Banderas and it is this extraordinary view that the plot has access to that inspired the architects for the design of the home. Its contemporary architecture makes the most out of the location and the views that it provides.

Casa Almare by Elias Rizo Arquitectos in Jalisco, Mexico

Located in one of the most beautiful beaches in Jalisco, this residence is designed in a contemporary mexican style. The house perches over a cliff next to the ocean, which influences the particular shape allowing for amazing views to Bahía de Banderas.

The house has 4 and a half floors which contain all the bedrooms and public areas. All areas in the house have visual contact with the ocean, giving it a unique and sophisticated style.

R+P House by ADI Arquitectura y Diseño Interior

The R+P House is a stunning contemporary residence designed by the Mexico-based studio ADI Arquitectura y Diseño InteriorThis two-story residence is located in the city of Aguascalientes in Mexico and it boasts 3,767 square feet of living space for its residents. It is designed for a 5-member family where 3 members are beloved pets.
The exterior design is dictated by the irregular fan-shaped land, oriented south to north. Its minimalist, contemporary look sets it apart from the rest of the homes in the area.

R+P House by ADI Arquitectura y Diseño Interior in Aguascalientes City, Mexico

Located in a residential area in the northern part of Aguascalientes city, R+P house is developed for a family of 5, where 3 of them are pets.

In an irregular fan shaped land and with a south-north orientation. The architectonic program is resolved in two floors.

Given the land characteristics and based on the customer’s requirements of having ortogonal spaces, this project is conceptualized as two prismatic volumes aligned with the colindancias laterales and connected by the vestibule that resolves the circulaciones.

On the first floor we can find the social areas: garage, kitchen, living room, dining room and Talita, Hanna and Job’s bedroom that has a direct access to the garden terrace.

On the first level, the master bedroom, studio, laundry room and TV room.

The master bedroom and terrace have a view of the back garden, opening a space between the garage’s volume to give it a south orientation.

The main vestibule is the articulator axis of the whole project, connecting both prismas, all the rooms are connected through a double height space and a bridge that unites the upper floor.

The material selection was determined by its practicality and ease of cleaning, in a house where pets are a member of the family.

Estancia y Ficus by Canas Arquitectos in Escazu, Costa Rica

Estancia y Ficus by Canas Arquitectos

The Estancia y Ficus project by Canas Arquitectos is a very simple, yet an incredibly unique project. It is a rather small house, only spanning across 979 square feet but not all is in the size. This house is all about location. It is located in the colonial city of Escazu in San Jose in Costa Rica, but more importantly, it is placed atop a hill that overlooks San Jose and Heredia.

Estancia y Ficus by Canas Arquitectos in Escazu, Costa Rica

The program could not be simpler.

It’s a place where one can enjoy the view and spend afternoons and part of the evening with friends and family.

The location selected had a slight slope towards the east and a bonsai like tree, that resembles the ones grown by its owner.

The view of the San Jose city with the central volcanic mountain range is spectacular, the Escazu mountains with it’s Pico Blanco or White Peak , so close that you feel that you can touch them with your hands.

At nighttime, San Jose becomes the main attraction as it starts lighting up, the sky starts turning red, tinted by the city lights and the rest of the landscape begins to get lost in the darkness. The only one thing that remains is the illuminated Ficus.

With this in mind, we designed a glass house, elevated on top of metallic columns and with a cover that opens towards the view – 3 glass sides and a back wall (with the amenities).

Canas Arquitectos

Estancia y Ficus by Canas Arquitectos in Escazu, Costa Rica

The access is through a steel bridge and glass which directs us towards the open view of the city , and soon towards the end, breaking off into an angle to access the room. It’s a unique 52 m2 space which holds living room, dining room, kitchen and a small adjacent bathroom.

This space opens up completely on its northeast side facing the area’s landscape and about 60% towards the 30 square meter terrace facing San Jose.

A dark ceramic tile was chosen for the floor and the ceiling was paingted greyinh color so that during the night these colores would leave the room almost in a semi darkness and would not compete with the city lights. The furniture and the wall colors all complement such style.

To sum it all up: a light and clear project, which is not intrusive, designed to immerse yourself within the scenery.

Bolton Residence by Naturehumaine in Quebec, Canada

Location: East Bolton, Quebec, Canada
Area: 1,500 sqft

Bolton Residence by Naturehumaine

Naturehumaine have designed the Bolton Residence in the Quebec municipality of East Bolton. This simplistic 1,500 square feet Canadian home is elevated above a rock located on a rugged hillside. The two-story family residence consists of two structures stacked upon one another, where the lower story is a concrete block partially built into the slope.

Bolton Residence by Naturehumaine in Quebec, Canada

Having bought a beautiful plot of wooded land in Quebec’s Eastern Townships, the client dreamt of building a country house that would be in perfect symbiosis with its natural environment. This rugged, sloped site came to a natural plateau just below its highest point, becoming the perfect location to erect the house.

The house is characterized by two stacked volumes; a wooden clad volume anchored into the mountain supports a cantilevering ground floor volume above. This gable roofed volume raised into the air gives the sensation that the house is floating amongst the trees. Vast views of Mount Orford and the valley below are framed by a long horizontal strip window. The kitchen and master bathroom are carved out of a black volume at the center of the house dividing living spaces from the master bedroom.

Davis Residence by Miller Hull in Washington, USA

Architects: Miller Hull
Location: Bellingham, Washington, USA
Area: 1,400 sqft
Photographs by: Benjamin Benschneider

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || ).push({});

Davis Residence by Miller Hull

The Davis Residence is a 1,400 square feet home located in a densely wooded area on a cliff with a stellar view of the San Juan Islands. It is actually located in Bellingham, Washington, USA where it tries its best to blend in with the natural environment that surrounds it.
Miller Hull has designed the Davis Residence with an abundant use of wood throughout the interior as well as the exterior, creating a warm ambiance and a strong connection to its surroundings.

Davis Residence by Miller Hull in Washington, USA

This 1400 sq. ft main house and guest house/garage is located on a heavily wooded cliff site with views of the San Juan Islands of Washington State. The plan orients to major views south down the coast line and west out to the islands while being careful to stay outside of the drip line of the dominant Doug fir trees. Large overhangs protect glazing and provide shelter.

The concept marries a long gently sloping roof form containing the kitchen, entry and studio with a vertical tower containing the living room and master bedroom above.

The roof forms express their timber construction with exposed joist, 1×4 skip sheathing and plywood diaphragms. The high performance wood fir windows provide thermal breaks while being strong enough for the mullions to be of minimal dimension. Wood T&G paneling is stained in bold transparent colors.

El Guarango House by Bernardo Bustamante in Quito, Ecuador

Project: El Guarango House
Architects: Bernardo Bustamante
Location: Quito, Ecuador
Area: 1,162 sqft
Photographs by: Sebastian Crespo

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || ).push({});

El Guarango House by Bernardo Bustamante

The El Guarango House is built right into a hillside in Quito, Ecuador. This 1,162 square feet weekend home is designed by Bernardo Bustamante to integrate modern living into a peaceful, rural setting. The modern home nestles into its surroundings, sitting alone on top of a hill, offering spectacular views of the growing urban area below and the valley into the distance.

El Guarango House by Bernardo Bustamante in Quito, Ecuador

The Guarango House is located in Rumiloma, one of the hills that stems from the Ilaló, a hill that has recently been integrated to become part of Quito´s rapidly growing urban area. Rumiloma´s irregular topography with its steep slopes and sharp ravines creates an astonishing view of the Ecuadorean Andes.

The house is situated in the uppermost area of a large batch of three hectares taking advantage of a natural existing platform, similar to the plant of the houses´ single floor base área, which avoids interfering with the land´s natural given characteristics.

The architectural program was conceived as a weekend two bedroom home, with a social area that doubles its size, by integrating the outer covered terrace which in itself extends its view endlessly towards the Inga Valley, the site of Ecuador´s first human settlements.

It was built in 75 days, optimizing resources to reduce costs to a mínimum, despite the difficult access to the projects location.

The construction technology used, fuses the metal framework with load- bearing brick masonry. A contemporary effect is achieved with the use of ancestral resources such as handcrafted clay bricks made at the same location with clay soil from the ground.

In the Inner architectural design, the need to close and shield the house on all fronts when the owners are not present was taken into account by creating a system of sliding gates designed to also hide from view within the same structures of the house when open.

Water is scarce in this region and there is no drinking water supply. It doesn´t rain for half of the year , therefore rain water is collected from the roof in an artificial grotto dug next to the house which is then complemented by a system of cisterns that collect water through integrated gutters placed in strategic areas of the land, which in turn help with the reforestation of the site.

This project demonstrates how it is possible to solve the need to build a weekend house in a rural area with a unique and simple volume using honest traditional and contemporary materials, and without hiding constructive elements, generating efficiency and synthetism consistent with a sustainable idea.

White Line by Nravil Architects in Almaty, Kazakhstan

Area: 3,229 sqft

White Line by Nravil Architects

Nravil Architectsa Kazakhstan-based architecture studio, completed its design for the elegant White Line residence that overlooks the cityscape of Almaty, Kazakhstan.
This 3,229 square foot home sits on a nearly flat site, which made the construction a lot easier since only minimal excavations were performed during the process. One of the most unique features of this home is its exterior design which is formed by a concrete frame coated with a smooth white lime plaster.

White Line by Nravil Architects in Almaty, Kazakhstan

We like to make the house as simple as possible and at the same time interesting. The building is located in a landscape of unique beauty. The main goal was to develop the project without harming the natural landscape. The exterior of the house is conceived, that would look different from different sides and due to this you can enjoy the view of a non-repetitive exterior.

Appearance and interior support the same color, emphasizing the severity and unity of the house. Panoramic energy-saving windows from both sides of the house evoke a feeling of complete openness and privacy with nature. The glass has a reflective property from the outside to reflect trees and clouds, so the house merges as much as possible with the surrounding environment. You can go on the balcony in the morning to drink coffee, enjoy a panoramic view of the horizon and fresh air.

The interior of the house is simple. Monochromatic white color in the interior allows to maximize the sense of space and not to strain the person, to feel clean and relax comfortably.

There were minimal excavations at the construction of the house, as the current relief of the site was perfect. The house stands on stilts. The frame of the house is a concrete structure, which is isolated from the outside and then covered with a flexible, smooth white lime plaster.

16 Irresistible Modern Sunroom Designs That Will Secure Its Place In Your Home

There are plenty of people out there that consider the sunroom an extinct room in the modern homes but as usual, we are here to prove otherwise. The modern sunroom is a very viable addition or extension of your modern home, but not for reasons that it first came into existence.
Back then when there were no air conditioners, the sunroom or conservatory was the living room replacement during the summer. Nowadays, the modern sunroom is more of an indoor-outdoor place. In other words, if your home is surrounded by a beautiful natural environment or you have a well-landscaped yard, the modern sunroom will enable you to enjoy it regardless of the weather outside.

Tower House by Andersson Wise Architects in Austin, Texas

Project: Tower House
Architects: Andersson Wise Architects
Location: Austin, Texas, USA
Photographs by: Art Gray

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || ).push({});

Tower House by Andersson Wise Architects

Andersson Wise Architects have designed a modern residence in Austin, Texas, called the Tower House, for obvious reasons.
This tower shaped dwelling is a result of the client’s request for a larger home with additional bedrooms, baths and living areas. Instead of extending the old limestone cabin, the architects decided to create a brand new vertical home that rises up out of the forest, providing stunning views of Lake Travis.

Tower House by Andersson Wise Architects in Austin, Texas

In considering an addition to the original, stone lodge at this Lake Travis property, the notion of a tower was born out of several factors: taking advantage of views, minimizing the footprint on the site, and accommodating the rising flood plain elevation.

There are a few small limestone cabins from the 1930’s located along Lake Travis, the longest of the Highland Lakes that terrace the hill country west of Austin, and they are used primarily in the summer. One such cabin sits on a slope rising from the water under a canopy of native oaks and cedars. It had one large room, a little sleeping room, a kitchen, and a porch facing the water.

Our clients requested two additional bedrooms with baths and a living area for larger groups to gather. We chose to locate the new sleeping quarters in a separate tower. Two small bedrooms occupy the first and second floors. Above, a third level terrace opens to a panorama of the lake and distant rolling hills. On this terrace, some thirty feet above the ground, even the hottest summer afternoon can be enjoyed under a roof open to the prevailing breezes blowing in from the lake. The original stone cabin is now juxtaposed with a vertical tower of wood, rising up out of the forest and into the bright Texas sky. The Tower draws you up to see the lake, barely visible at ground level through the thicket of trees.
