In developing urban areas with high construction density, the lack of natural light in tube houses can make the space feel stuffy and disconnected.
Combining the balance of city living together with nature. Home design ideas with natural light and breeze. Leaving space around the house for a garden area, including inserting plants on the balcony to create a good atmosphere for living. It is the heart of home design.
The project seeks to provide a refuge for the family that inhabits it (1 couple and 2 children), who frequently camp in the pine forest where it is located; we chose 5 trees, which we connected with metal beams (painted pink – color theory), to generate the structure of the floor and the roof respectively, thus creating 2 habitable levels: the transverse slope of the terrain generated the Ground Floor-viewpoint, where it is also the BBQ area, with a clay kitchen “molded” into the natural slope of the land.
In the heart of Seoul, right beside the historic Joseon Dynasty palace, an emblematic space emerges from the ground. The location of Songhyeon Dong carries a rich and varied history, with changing uses and owners over time. The (in)visible pavilion presents contrasting perspectives: reflecting on the outside, while revealing transparency within. It acts as a temporal connector, transcending the boundaries of time for the 4th Seoul Biennale of Architectureand Urbanism.
Another Seedbed is a new node in the cultural fabric of New York City. Resulting from the renovation of a space in a former hat factory located in a late-century cast iron building in Brooklyn, the project keeps the impetus of earlier occupations of industrial spaces in the city by facilitating different forms of hospitality through artistic performances and other public events that the owner organizes–countering the tendency towards normative domesticities that characterize current trends in the renovation of former industrial spaces in large metropolises.
This care home in the small municipality of Zoersel was designed on the initiative of a private client. They set up a partnership with non-profit organisation Emmaus to develop a residential project for the family’s granddaughter and eight other residents with a mental disability.
Spread over two buildings, the project has a mixed materiality made of wood, concrete and glass, and is part of a global sustainable development approach combining bioclimatic design, bio-based materials, and energy performance.
The Elementary School of Szentpéterfa introduces a new model of school architecture in Hungary. Its intensive participatory design was complemented with years of multidisciplinatory research to implement a wide range of learning and social spaces. The school integrates indoor and outdoor learning landscapes, a learning canopy and two steps in the evolution of the classroom: the Alcoved Classrooms as the further development of the L-shaped classroom and the very first Turning Classrooms in the world.
The Saracura House is part of a group of row houses built in the 1940s in the Bexiga neighborhood of São Paulo. In resistance to the current real estate speculation in the neighborhood, the renovation of the house seeks to preserve its memory by maintaining the original facade and the existing courtyard configuration. The original structure of the house is revealed, and the historic retaining wall, characteristic of the existing topography of the neighborhood, appears as a visible element from different environments of the house.
Situated on a remarkable site, between the adjacent Scarpe river, the archaeological museum Arkéos and a nearby residential complex, the project aims to harmoniously connect these elements and create an accessible and inspiring space for visitors. Snøhetta’s design is a unified building with curves that wrap around the two domes of the projection room and the observatory.
