PAO’s prefabricated plugin tower reconsiders residential living in China

People’s Architecture Office has designed a temporary, prefabricated structure that addresses the future of residential living in China. Installed at the Shenzhen headquarters of real estate developer Vanke, the ‘Plugin Tower’ addresses the insecurity of private home ownership in a country where land is held exclusively by the government, and the construction of private homes is reserved for the wealthy. Commissioned by Vanke, People’s Architecture Office has designed the structure to stand without the need for foundations, circumventing the strict planning approval required for permanent buildings. The flexible and adaptable design also excludes the risk of losing one’s property, as residents can pack up their home and bring it with them if they are forced to relocate.

Artelabo connects French villa with an intricate pergola of flowers + birds

Artelabo Architecture has completed its construction of ‘Villa Tempérée’, a brilliant white home in a small village near Lodève, north of Montpellier, France. The site of the house is located on a sloping topography, a series of stepped platforms supported by stone walls provides the build with generous views of the expansive wooded landscape. Flat roofed and elongated, the horizontal silhouette of the house highlights the shape of the surrounding hills and achieves a balance both within its own program and in relation to its sloped environment. To integrate the house into the existing geography, Artelabo simply rebuilt and extended the dry stone wall below to meet the site material.

INDUSTRIAL CHIC MEETS LUXURY SKINCARE IN AESOP’S NEW SEOUL STORE

Aesop is a brand that has achieved the impossible – global saturation while maintaining a sense of bespoke locality. That’s the dream, right? And how is it that they manage to pull this off? By investing heavily in design; local designers and high-end materials. The luxury skincare brand’s insistence on investing in design has taken ‘materiality’ from an elite luxury to a mainstream necessity; hence, the ‘Aesop Effect’. The most recent example of this philosophy in action is the brand’s ninth Seoul location, Aesop Samcheong by Torafu Architects. Located in a cute single-storey street front building, Aesop wanted to inhibit the cultural vibe and intensity of the area’s lively Gyeongbokgung city palace.

Arshia Architects’ angular MU77 home perches over Hollywood Hills

LA-based studio Arshia Architects has shared with us MU77, one of their recently completed houses projecting from a steep Hollywood hillside on renowned Mulholland drive. The project, one of the newest additions to the iconic mountainscape. A series of practical and zoning related challenges shaped much of the overall form, as the house needed to be pushed to the lower end of the site closer to the public road while required view lines greatly informed the connected from interior to exterior. The house as an object differentiates itself from the landscape as a form alien to its surroundings, whose stark white envelope alludes to the nature of a stone having broken through the ground.

House style: a Marcel Breuer villa is reborn

A thorough restoration of one of Bauhaus master Marcel Breuer’s lesser-known gems, Villa Harnischmacher II, has just been unveiled by its new owners, Monika Maria and Stefan Eller.

Located in Wiesbaden’s city centre, the bungalow was originally designed for the Harnischmacher family in 1954 – in fact, it was the second one designed for them by Breuer. The first one was damaged during the war and this smaller version was constructed in the grounds of the original, destroyed villa.

In Sarah Waller’s Glass House, modernist and monochrome design principles align

After conceptualising her dream home for 20 years, architect, builder and designer Sarah Waller found the perfect plot of land to build it, in Noosa, Australia, where she relocated to ten years ago from the UK. Inspired by midcentury architecture, her Glass House follows her own minimal and monochrome design principles.

‘I’ve always wanted to live in a glass house since I was an architectural student in London when I fell in love with the Philip Johnson Glass House and the Farnsworth House,’ says Waller, who designed the light-filled single storey home to blur the boundaries between indoor and out.

Heroe is the title of a solo exhibition by French artist CAMILLE BLATRIX currently on view at Wattis Institute in San Francisco. The presentation is featuring a series of minimal sculptures that appear familiar and timeless thanks to a highly precise manufacture. As with much of his previous works, the meaning of BLATRIX‘s objects is dissolved into a self-contained abstraction and is ascribed to the viewer’s narrative impulse.
