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.

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.

The new project from architect Laertis-Antonios Ando Vassiliou, co-founder of OPA, which brought cliffside Casa Brutale, ‘Villa Clessidra’ is a conceptual three-level forest dwelling by LAAV architects. The cubic scheme of 200 square meters provided both architectural freedom and constraints, which dictated the proportions of each private and public program within. Hypothetically, it would be built amongst a pine forest and be a place for relaxation and meditation.

PUDDLE Turns Traditional Merchants House into Craft Beer Bar in Kyoto

Occupying one of the remaining three ‘machiya’ townhouses in Kyoto, the once typical home-cum-shop for local merchants has been refurbished into a Japanese sake and craft beer bar by PUDDLE. The repurposing element of the project was initiated when the owner — a former sake brewer— wanted to restore his brewery, while preserve the declining number of ‘machiyas’. In the end, the interior followed a mismatch between the existing traditional materials, and the non-traditional prominence towards the front of the structure.
