Day Care Centre de Kleine Kikker

This is a very fun design by Drost + van Veen Architecten. The Day Care Centre de Kleine Kikker mixes traditional building types with a material quality that is something that would be seen through the eyes of a child. In architecture it is important to remember that each design can and should embody all phases and facets of life. Having said that, these ideas need not be separate. The playful can be…

Architect Learns to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

Original post from Coffee with an Architect

Last year, a bomb went off. I was laid off from my job in January, along with 90 other people. Trust me, that bomb had been ticking for a few years before it blew. So, it seemed like as good a time as any to start my own firm. I’m not the type of person who always wanted his own company. I’ve been perfectly content to work with others for my whole…

House JE

This house was designed by Humberto Hermeto Arquitetura. This architecture takes advantage of the beautiful Brazilian countryside and existing site topography. The house is also impressive because of the continuous concrete roof that spreads across the length of the structure. While I think this house was beautifully designed, it does seem more like a museum than a home. That's not…

Tumble

This is a great little house. I don't really have anything profound to say about this architecture, it's just a good house. I think, though, that this is a good time to point out the obvious. That is to say, you don't have to do something earth-shattering to be a good architect. It doesn't take a limitless budget or a sympathetic owner, it just takes time, effort and will. Don't worry about what…

Artreehoose

Artreehouse by Della Valle Bernheimer is a wonderful example of how architecture can arise from observations of nature and existing urbanism. The design for this house in Connecticut was derived from both local typologies of architecture and the rich wooded areas budding up against the water. The home provides canopies that both protect one from the elements while offering a new way to…

BLC Headquarters

A co-finalist in a competition for the BLC Headquarters in Beirut. This building is pure enjoyment. It's a play on scale. Think of any type of toy building block you played with as a child and imagine you could do the same thing in real life. Too often the constraints of society prohibit such architectural playfulness, but this competition by Nadim Karam & Atelier Hapsitus really shows how…

Get Back In Touch

When was the last time you spoke to your former co-workers? Remember when you were leaving those old jobs and you made promises to keep in touch and have lunch dates? How often do we really stay in touch with these vital parts of our network? My guess is, unless you are best buddies with your former co-workers, that most of us do not even pick up a phone to see how they are doing. However, these old connections are vital assets for…

Iriis - A House For Mother

I was forwarded this project by one of our followers on twitter. It's a great little house by a practice called Welab. The mother of the family is going blind and so this house is in many respects a gesture toward her. The family desires for her to enjoy the rest of her eyesight in a place of beauty and peace. The design of the house is a beautiful blend of exterior space and exterior views of the landscape. A more…

Stone House

In the countryside of Portugal you'll find a unique house built between two large boulders on a hill. I'm not sure who designed it. It probably wasn't a "licensed architect", whatever that means. I imagine that it was the product of an ordinary person or family that saw these two stones and realized an opportunity. It makes me wonder what our buildings would be like if they didn't have to be next to other buildings. I…
