Park House by Another Apartment

Japanese studio Another Apartment has completed a house with an asymmetric roof on a narrow site in suburban Tokyo.

Constructed across the street from a local park, the three-storey house has a glazed facade intended to offer views out towards the trees.

A garage and bathroom take up most of the ground floor of Park House, so the architect located the living room and bedroom on the middle storey.

New House in Neutral Colours With Panoramic View Over the Alps by Gogl Architekten

Meet Haus Walde, a gorgeous new structure built by Gogl Architekten, located in Kitzbühel, Austria. The clients requested a contemporary open plan living space with panoramic views over the Alps.

It was not an easy task for the architects, because they had to identify a design line that blended perfectly with the old house, without making it look old. To avoid an architectural conflict, the new structure is enriched with a few rustic notes.

The two houses are independent one from another representing two different structures built in two different periods of time. The new house exhales more luminosity. It has floor-to-ceiling windows with wooden frame and a uncluttered interior, inspiring breeziness. These makes it a soothing place, just perfect to enjoy the breathtaking landscape.

When we first set foot on this old soil in the city of Myoren-ji, we not merely got interested by this lush site, but rather fascinated by its’ overwhelming beauty, that laid in every single FIBRE.
