The project involved the refurbishment of an existing listed building. It is sited in an agricultural environment dedicated to irrigation cultivation. That is the reason why the regulations determined that the existing building could not be demolished in order to build a new one.Save this picture!© Ignacio Espigares EnríquezThis house, almost in ruins, was disposed by two buildings around a patio: a house and a poultry house. Both buildings were built by stone walls in bad conditions and covered with a metallic temporary roof.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe intention of this refurbishment is to take advantage of the a few traditional items of the building, such as the thickness of the walls and the orientations and going a step further the conception of the domestic space and evolve the imposed functional structure: small openings and hierarchical spaces that do not allow the flexibility demanded by the current contemporary life.Save this picture!© Ignacio Espigares EnríquezOn those basis, the existing functional layout was modified so that the house could be organized in privacy gradients. From the external facades the house seams introverted and most of the rooms are opened to the internal patio, which is the space where the life runs around. The less private rooms (foyer, living room, kitchen, dining room, play room) are opened to this central space, which is understood as another room of the house, generating a panoptic view. The rest of the rooms connect to a common area conceived as an extension of the room’s privacy and allowing for a flexible use.Save this picture!SectionOne of the goals was to develop the project trying to minimize the economic and energy costs; that is why the building envelope is made with a unitary material allowing for a reduction of the general construction costs and giving to the project a self-identity. Moreover, it allowed the house to merge with the surrounding landscape. Local materials and techniques have been used taking the maximum advantage of natural resources such as cross ventilations or vegetable canopies.Save this picture!© Ignacio Espigares EnríquezThe resulting house assumes the continuity condition with the scenery and can be understood as a proposition of a modern way of life related to old preexistences throughout a sober and controlled language.Save this picture!© Ignacio Espigares EnríquezProject gallerySee allShow lessNieto Sobejano Wins Competition to Design New Guangzhou Science MuseumArchitecture NewsThe Studios / SOUP architectsSelected Projects Share Year: Save this picture!© Ignacio Espigares Enríquez+ 16 Share 2014 Architects: Rosa Ma Ballester Espigares Area Area of this architecture project 2014 Year: CopyHouses, Renovation•Cartagena, Spain Spain CopyAbout this officeRosa Ma Ballester EspigaresOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationCartagenaHousesRefurbishmentRenovationSpainPublished on June 16, 2015Cite: “La Rambla House / Rosa Ma Ballester Espigares” 16 Jun 2015.

A two-family house situated in a residential Tokyo neighborhood. While the living areas are completely separate, the construction features a rhythmically and holistically integrated façade that suits the characteristics of each household. By providing the parental household (consisting of two parents and a daughter) with a first-floor living-dining kitchen and placing cedar-textured bare concrete walls on the road side, this residence functions as a courtyard house that connects to the forecourt on the entrance side while ensuring privacy.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaSave this picture!© Masao NishikawaSave this picture!Ground and first floor plansSave this picture!© Masao NishikawaAlso, the private floors on the second and third stories incorporate separate private rooms that give each adult resident the freedom to live independently. Meanwhile, the child household features a central courtyard that creates a separation between the front and inner spaces, linked by a bridge on the second floor. On the first floor, the bathroom and the bedrooms face each other across the courtyard, enhancing privacy.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaIn addition, because the second floor is a high-ceiling atrium, natural light from high windows and skylights fills the room to create a roomy spaciousness. Because the bridge on the second floor is outside, the living room and dining kitchen are functionally separated into a “main building” and “annex,” facilitating life together while ensuring privacy.It is almost like an urban resort that evokes the atmosphere of a private villa. At night, the minimal space illuminated by indirect lighting is joined by a warm impression, making you forget that this is a residential area.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Rose of Vierschach / Pedevilla ArchitectsSelected ProjectsJump Hub / Jakub Cigler Architekti + Unlimited Jakub Cigler ArchitektiSelected Projects Share Projects Photographs: Masao Nishikawa RHYTHM House / APOLLO Architects & AssociatesSave this projectSaveRHYTHM House / APOLLO Architects & Associates Houses CopyHouses•Setagaya City, Japan Structural Engineer: ArchDaily “COPY” RHYTHM House / APOLLO Architects & Associates Architects: APOLLO Architects & Associates Area Area of this architecture project SIRIUS LIGHTING OFFICE Japan 2018 Save this picture!© Masao Nishikawa+ 33Curated by Hana Abdel Share “COPY” Photographs Area: 179 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Masaki Structures Lighting Design: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/933555/rhythm-house-apollo-architects-and-associates Clipboard Year: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/933555/rhythm-house-apollo-architects-and-associates Clipboard CopyAbout this officeAPOLLO Architects & AssociatesOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSetagaya CityOn FacebookJapanPublished on February 13, 2020Cite: “RHYTHM House / APOLLO Architects & Associates” 12 Feb 2020.

The house is situated in an old neighborhood in Metro Manila where the current trend is to convert old, vast properties into mid density townhouse developments. Despite this trend, the client envisioned to build his house and convert his old property into a garden oasis in the middle of the city where he could enjoy a laid-back lifestyle, relax with his family, and enjoy the company of his dogs.Save this picture!© Leslie ChuaSave this picture!Plan – Ground floorSave this picture!© Leslie ChuaThe house sits on a 2,000 sqm property, primarily facing west. It is divided into quadrants – the north and south quadrants are dedicated to a vast garden, while the guest house and main house occupy the west and east quadrants respectively . All are strategically placed so each house can enjoy the view of the spacious garden.Save this picture!© Leslie ChuaThe client’s brief was for a house that embraces the landscape – a space that blurs the boundaries of exterior and interior spaces where one cannot distinguish if they are in or out of the house, as if creating an indoor urban villa. This design brief could have been easily resolved with full height glass windows, but the challenge was the site orientation as it is facing west with the afternoon tropical sun. Since the site almost sits in between two townhouses, privacy was seen as an issue due to the neighboring apartments.Save this picture!© Leslie ChuaKeeping the client’s brief and the challenge in mind, the architects opened up the façade facing the north and south garden with floor to ceiling windows. They also introduced vertical timber screens as a buffer to deflect the heat coming from the afternoon sun that doubles as a privacy shield.Save this picture!© Leslie ChuaSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Leslie ChuaThe main access of the property is through the main road at the north side of the property. Upon entry is a courtyard, clad in dark gray cobble stone surrounded with Podocarpus plant as a soft contrast to the masculine texture of the stone. On the left side of the courtyard is the ramp towards the basement parking. Above it is a roof garden that can be directly seen and enjoyed from the living area. Towards the front of the courtyard are series of steps that lead you to a bigger courtyard, directing you to the main or guest house.Save this picture!© Leslie ChuaThe main house is planned in an “O” shaped layout with an interior garden in the middle. A massive black metal door welcomes the visitors into the ground floor with the interior garden as a backdrop. On the left side of the house facing west is the living room directly connected to the roof garden through the sliding doors. On the right side of the house is where the soul of the house is. Visitors normally flock the huge kitchen with its massive yet charming solid wood bar counter as a centerpiece. Adjacent to the kitchen is another pocket garden that echoes the urban garden concept.Save this picture!© Leslie ChuaThe access to the upper floor is through a cantilevered metal staircase anchored to the double height travertine wall as a backdrop. Black metal strings are attached as a guardrail from the bottom floor to the top of a double volume ceiling. The upper floor houses the private rooms. The master bedroom, being the biggest room the house, contains an en-suite walk in closet, private bathroom and toilet. Strategically placed in between two gardens, it boasts an almost 270 degree view of the outdoors and landscape.Save this picture!© Leslie ChuaProject gallerySee allShow lessTooronga Townhouse / Pitch Architecture + DesignSelected ProjectsSt. Carolus Hospital Screening Facility / AT-LARSSelected Projects Share Photographs CopyHouses•Quezon City, Philippines CopyAbout this officePXP Design Workshop CoOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesQuezon CityOn FacebookPhilippinesPublished on September 10, 2020Cite: “ET New Manila House / PXP Design Workshop Co” 09 Sep 2020.
