Translucent Home Built Around a Tree in a Kazakh Forest

Translucent Home Built Around a Tree in a Kazakh Forest 1 Translucent Home Built Around a Tree in a Kazakh Forest 2 Translucent Home Built Around a Tree in a Kazakh Forest 3 Translucent Home Built Around a Tree in a Kazakh Forest 4

Located in a forest on the mountains of Almaty in Kazakhstan, architect Aibek Almasov of A.Masow Design Studio has designed a concept for a modern spiritual retreat. The project, known as “Tree in the house”, presents a cylindrical, four-story glass space featuring an encased tree in the center. A winding white staircase allows visitors who enter the “tree house” to ascend the towering space, spiraling upward around the centric tree.

The intention behind the transparent architectural structure, tucked away in a sea of lofty fir trees, is to merge manmade industrial design with nature and “give up some unnecessary conditions and things.” The project aims to offer an alternative to bustling city life and stifling urban structures by fusing a a protective house and a natural environment without creating a visual separation.

View House by Johnston Marklee, Rosario, Argentina

The View House is designed by Johnston Marklee in Rosario, Argentina, under conditions generated by both the potential and limitations of large suburban developments. Situated on the vast landscape of the Argentine plains, the 3200 sq foot house occupies a 22,750 sq foot parcel. The design is driven by two conflicting desires: engaging the living experience of the house with the views of the landscape and preserving privacy from neighbors.

Planning demands and the unique position of the peripheral lot resulted in a compact massing strategy with a minimal footprint that liberates and preserves the ground. By denying the traditional front, side, and rear yard designations, the perception of the house unfolds in a continuous sequence of surfaces where every facade becomes primary.

Contemporary Prahran Hotel Melbourne Pub

Contemporary-Prahran-Hotel-Melbourne-Pub-1 Contemporary-Prahran-Hotel-Melbourne-Pub-2 Contemporary-Prahran-Hotel-Melbourne-Pub-3 Contemporary-Prahran-Hotel-Melbourne-Pub-4 Contemporary-Prahran-Hotel-Melbourne-Pub-5 Contemporary-Prahran-Hotel-Melbourne-Pub-6 Contemporary-Prahran-Hotel-Melbourne-Pub-7 Contemporary-Prahran-Hotel-Melbourne-Pub-8 Contemporary-Prahran-Hotel-Melbourne-Pub-9 Contemporary-Prahran-Hotel-Melbourne-Pub-13

The old Prahran Hotel in Melbourne has just undergone a pretty extensive renovation that still keeps their classic circular motifs in mind. While the previous art deco influenced space has been replaced with tunnel shaped booths and a multi-level space that features a dance floor, beer garden and an extremely long bar.

Leather, concrete, steel and glass keep this space feeling masculine; even against the soft curvature of the undeniable circular references. The concrete irrigation pipe sections are filled with booth seating, and partons are able to sit inside and watch the busy streets below. The alterations to the original 1940s facade are dramatic, yet understated and the interior is a subtle voyeuristic space that still allows for plenty of natural light to flood in during the day.

This simple and classic rooftop garden is an unforgettable design, with the main “garden” being a circular patch of grass with elegantly shaped topiaries surrounding the sleek and simple center. Though it’s 25 stories above the teeming city, this garden is a peaceful oasis just screaming for a visitor or two.

Shoffice by Platform 5 Architects

shoffice-1 shoffice-2 shoffice-3 shoffice-5 shoffice-6 shoffice-7

Platform 5 Architects designed this Shoffice (shed + office), a garden pavilion containing a small office alongside garden storage space. The shed/office is located to the rear of a 1950′s terraced house in St John’s Wood. The project required that the shoffice would be conceived of as a sculptural object that flowed into the garden space.

According to the architects, “The glazed office space nestles into an extruded timber elliptical shell, reminiscent of a wood shaving, and forms a small terrace in the lawn. The interior is oak lined and fitted out with a cantilevered desk and storage. Two rooflights – one glazed above the desk with another open to the sky outside the office bring light into the work space.”
