People from this current era who doesn’t want to own same product as others. Product provides customized item by disassemble and reassemble in different combination. As a result, customized product is generated per users taste. In case of product customizing, typically the manufacturer or craftsman produce products per the client request, but it seem like it is focusing on changing the appearance only.Save this picture!© Park Wan-soonToday is certainly an era when requires my own house, my own life style, and individualized styles. Architecture, especially customizing house is not very easy. This is more so because editing the exterior for showing is not much meaningful in daily life. The limit remains the same even if the layout of each room named like parts changes. The house should be opened to unexpected possibilities in structure that could be recombined on its own according to family members movement and restructure the life pattern per individual taste.Save this picture!© Park Wan-soonA house which we, the modern people, who is worn out by apartment culture can tune the unfamiliar individual environment. In short, a house where we can break away from daily life everyday would be a house that allows self-curating repetitive circulation and generate unfamiliar pattern. It cannot constitute our own life styles and various situation by simply laying out rooms as cage that confine to logical spatial order. Now, the house owner of this current period will become a main character and director of our lives through Customi-zip as their stage where they can constantly edit and reconstitute their stories. We would like to address patchwork of unfamiliar activities and selective editing space in Customi-zip.Save this picture!Diagram1. Living Flex_A house where Patchwork unfamiliar routesRepetitive everyday life in innumerable apartments around the city is comfortable and familiar for most people. However, the modern people, who started to decide targeted life on their own, stared to require the house to be optimized custom space according to personal selection every moments. We are trying to insert generally unfamiliar customized programs for individual along with indispensable function for dwelling. Disparate conflict of new fixed function and unfamiliar programs will provide daily life that patchwork from familiar repetitive routine of circulation to new unfamiliar activities.Save this picture!© Park Wan-soon2. House from daily life to deviationAt least once, everyone dream of breaking away from the routine of daily life. But it is hard to actually execute deviation in our everyday life. And we fluster when we face unexpected or unplanned deviation. Till now, we looked for a house with beautiful exterior and comfortable functions and we were used to live a daily life the house provides instead of a daily life for ourselves. A house that allows individuals who are used to the apartment culture to mediate their own environment and deviate would be a house where the owner direct the daily routine circulation and filling the house with his/her own life pattern.Save this picture!Diagram3. Unconstrained acceptance of programApartment that homogenize (Oneness) the life pattern of different individual through vertically stacked standardized units are more like a fancy cage then a residential space. In our lives, plausible editing of appearance is meaningless. It is necessary to prepare a place with setting of unlimited possible programs to program and stage the daily life with our own individuality.Save this picture!© Park Wan-soon4. Self Curating Mass produced rational apartment which divides the space simply into rooms, living room, and kitchen without considering residents life style has limit in this ever-changing modern situation. Now dwelling should be different from apartment which simply divide levels and apply predetermined functions. We need to prepare logical structure of building with abundant organization of space where deals with outside in order to allow family members to reel off their stories per their moods every morning and people casually gathers in various patterns. In this space, they are the directors who edit their daily lives according to their own life patterns and reconstitute it in architectural space as a stage.Save this picture!Section5. Sectional mediation of temporary movementPeople naturally behave unexpectedly in organized composition of architectural elements, such as, height of floor, vertical wall, and stairs. If we keep the daily routine in regular tempo in a house that only consider functional demands without any architectural composition, there will be only indifferent boredom. In composition of sectional stairs, floor height difference, and spaces with different interior/exterior relationship, it proposes an open composition which can self-reconstitute family members casual movements, such as, swimming, sitting and resting, and romping around together.Save this picture!© Park Wan-soon6. House change in timeAccording to programs of the house throughout the day, required environment is different from each other. We need to wake up feeling fresh with morning light beaming into the room and we can drink a cup of tea with cozy atmosphere in the afternoon. In addition, quiet and peaceful atmosphere is required for evening when family members can enjoy playing games together. Thus, house cannot be built per simple functional demand, such as, facing the south and blocking the north. Communication with external environment should be maximized by reflecting the elevation and sectional design that responses to the demands from all direction and from day to night. Physical frame of concrete house will be a stage of changeable possibilities in various forms by a relationship with external environment per daily time period and the residents activities.Save this picture!© Park Wan-soonProject gallerySee allShow lessBillboard / +S/Shintaro Matsushita+Takashi Suzuki + knit/Naohito IkutaSelected ProjectsHouse in Ningyo-cho / K+S ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Customi-Zip / L’EAU designSave this projectSaveCustomi-Zip / L’EAU design 2013 Architects: L’EAU design Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” 2013 ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/616535/customi-zip-l-eau-design Clipboard Year:  South Korea Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/616535/customi-zip-l-eau-design Clipboard Customi-Zip / L’EAU design Houses CopyAbout this officeL’EAU designOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGwacheon-siKoreaDemocratic Peoples Republic ofs Republic ofHousesWoodSouth KoreaPublished on April 08, 2015Cite: “Customi-Zip / L’EAU design” 07 Apr 2015.

Located in Nova Lima – MG, on a site of approximately 1300m² in the Crystal Valley condominium, stands a house which looks out over the valley. The idea was to build a house that had all their social and intimate area on the same floor, and the leisure facilities, a laundry area and a garage on the stilts, one floor below. The stilts release the box volume that turns to the landscape with a definitive sight, since the adjacent land is a conservation área.Save this picture!© Jomar BragançaOn the entrance level are the hall, a half bath, the living room, dining area and home theater, forming a large open rectangular space that, beyond sight throughout its length, has a low-slope roof with steel structure and wooden lining, loose throughout its length by glass windows. It’s like a box whose lid opens beyond the landscape could have the sky around it. Next to the rooms, a comfortable eat-in kitchen with pantry, integrates with the other spaces. Opposite the kitchen, a balcony of contemplation runs the length of the room.Save this picture!Floor PlanNext to the home theater is the family area, with closet for linens, 3 great suites and a Master suite facing two views, with a walk-in closet and a comfortable bathroom. Downstairs, a garage for 8 cars integrates the recreation area and living which is also integrated into the gourmet kitchen, leisure area, sauna, pool and game room, plus a good wine cellar.

Lack of profitability of industries on one hand and imposed sanctions on the other hand have exacerbated an already soaring real-estate market in the capital.Having identified their properties as a promising investment zones, land owners with lots as small as 200 sq. (the city’s smallest size parcels) have demolished their single family houses and developed them into four and five storey middle class apartments. As a result, the city is now faced with agrowing number of infill projects whose aesthetic challenges are generally reduced to envelope design. In this particular project, the site is located at the end of a dead-end alley and is surrounded by other buildings. It doesn’t have a view to the street and it is not seen by passersby. It is a project with no prominent façade, and therefore insignificant for most architects.

Save this picture!© Ali DaghighInspired by the popular children’s story, “The Last Leaf”, and utilizing the talent of a street artist, we decided to paint a landscape on the cement wall and create a new view for the inhabitants. Use of Recycled Material from the Site The project had to replace an old brick building which existed on the site. The idea for the façade’s material comes from reusing the bricks from the old building. When the destruction was complete, the bricks were sorted and used in the façade and parts of the building. Save this picture!© Ali DaghighFaçade design Considering that the observable façade from the alley is about 3 meters width, designing progress of the mass is intended to invite the passerby toward the building.Save this picture!© Ali DaghighSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessSydney Blue Mountain’s House / North by northSelected ProjectsAmagansett Dunes / Bates Masi ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Tehran, Tehran, IranLocation to be used only as a reference.

They provided us a good foundation for our proposal and due to their previous work, the project was already advanced before it even started. Save this picture!© Nelson KonSave this picture!© Nelson KonGeometryThe irregular polygon which defines the site has seven sides and holds about 1,000 m2. The setbacks imprint an inner polygon (with a curve in one corner) that corresponds to a 330 m2 area in which it was possible to build 3 m above ground level. However, inside that inner figure we could only have 230 m2 per floor, considering the maximum height allowed (six floors) and the building program. The geometry of the slabs has two centers, as two cores of activities. On first three floors, it corresponds to one small apartment each, and for the three upper floors, it corresponds to two different programs in one large apartment. StructureThe design of the structure follows those two cores. Each core is supported by a “T” concrete wall that supports vertical and horizontal loads. The “T” wall is associated to two columns for vertical loads. Both cores are structurally combined which their “T”s perpendicularly displayed in order to support horizontal efforts in both directions. A lonely extra thin column, placed on the extreme north, frees the slab geometry to configure areas where it wouldn’t be possible.Save this picture!© Nelson KonSuch disposition of vertical elements waives the slabs of having beams. Therefore the slab plane has no clearly readable direction as usually happens with a structure with beams. As a result, once inside the building, the rigorous geometry of walls and columns cannot be easily understood. As if, once built, the building gives away its essence to be broken into parts, back to the surrounding geometry and the landscape.Save this picture!© Nelson KonFacadesEach façade is either an opaque plane, made with wood panels, or a transparent one, made with glazing panels. The opaque plane always meets a transparent one. As a result, from inside, the view has always an escape to the outside. On the other hand, from outside, the building volume seems like not having solids, just by planes.    Save this picture!© Nelson KonGround levelThe ground level is an open passage. Specifically for those who have the building as a destination, the ground level shares two different programs: housing and office.Save this picture!© Nelson KonThe office space is placed slightly sunk in the middle of the garden. As a result its height is shorter than that we typically associate to an inhabited construction and one cannot immediately realize its function. Besides, it was carefully placed aside the path and protected by the two structural reinforced concrete wall. As such, it merges two contrasting features: on the one hand it is quite discrete; on the other hand it brings some vitality to a peripheral corner of the site.At this level, the housing program is just announced by a small abstract prism, the elevator hall, whose size and feature were carefully calibrated not predominate in that space.Save this picture!© Nelson KonSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Nelson KonNeither house nor office, the predominance on the ground level is an open space. Although surrounded by gardens, the ground here is completely constructed.. Save this picture!© Nelson KonUnderground levelThere are two floors underground: the parking garage and the storage. The parking garage covers the entire available area, about 650 m2, and it is shallow enough to allow us to keep an historical retaining wall, and its function, at Pico street. This floor is full naturally lit and ventilated, and the access is provided by a gentle ramp, even for walking standards. It results that the ambience at this space is perceived as placed on the surface and not as a typical undergrounded one. The storage, 250 m2, has an inner perimeter inscribed in the previous floor. The setback from the boundaries avoids the use of both double high retaining walls and excavation on the border.Save this picture!© Nelson KonLow energy All façade panels were designed following parameters defined by our consultant in order to achieve the best energetic performance. The wood panel outside is ventilated and assembled on a frame which holds successive layers of thermal insulation, vapor barrier and an inside drywall panel. The glazing has triple glass panels on aluminum frame. The south and west glass facades are shaded by a retractable aluminum louver.Save this picture!© Nelson KonControlled ventilationThermal losses are drastically reduced due to a mechanical system of controlled ventilation, independent in each apartment.Save this picture!© Nelson KonGeothermal systemOne more strategy adopted to reduce drastically energy consumption for heating and cooling is the geothermal system. Four geothermal probes go down 225 m into vertical loops.  Save this picture!DiagramAll these issues aim a low energy building and allow to achieve the Swiss standard for energy consumption, the Minergie.   Save this picture!© Nelson KonProject gallerySee allShow lessThe War Over Water: This Dystopian City Design Was Inspired by Current Trends in Res…ArticlesOMA’s Taipei Performing Arts Center Facade UnveiledArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Lugano, SwitzerlandLocation to be used only as a reference.

The Salesian house project was an exciting commission for us and a great opportunity to develop a close working relationship with an unusual and exemplary client.Save this picture!© JZA PhotographySave this picture!© JZA PhotographyOur proposals had to be co-ordinated with the development of a new school on the adjacent land. This was a very rewarding process in which we worked in tandem with the wider professional team (led by AHMM) and the contractor (Lend Lease) to take account of the site-wide master plan. This culminated in a joint planning submission for the school and the community house.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanWorking with the Salesians was a genuinely collaborative effort between client and architect. They had ideas about what might work for them but without any pre-conceived image in mind. They were receptive to our ideas and our interpretation of the brief and fully supported us in our determination to achieve a solution that is both pragmatic and aspirational.Save this picture!© JZA PhotographySave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Will ScottThe geometry of the site was both a challenge and a ‘driver’ for the design and the complex duality of their needs required us to marry public uses with private spaces – arranging such a wide mix of uses within a relatively small building was not an easy task. Making sure the offices, bedrooms, communal living spaces, educational facilities, and the library would all be able to function properly, without compromising the pre-eminence of the chapel, was paramount.Save this picture!© Will ScottThe Salesian community was able to get the best out of us by knowing when to say ‘we trust you’ and when to challenge us to validate our ideas more thoroughly.

On grounds once harboring the residence of several Austrian Federal Presidents near the Hohe Warte meteorological station, five residential buildings recently took shape that seem to have landed like brimstone butterflies in a paradise garden. GERNER GERNER PLUS conjured up this feather-light impression.Save this picture!© Matthias RaigerSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Matthias RaigerA Central element of the area of approx. one hectare is not the buildings, however, but the wonderful stock of trees, which acted as the planning nucleus right from the start. In between, the architects arranged five buildings in such a way that each living unit was not confronted with an opposite building but instead had a free outlook onto a green landscape. “Close your eyes and think of a beautiful yellow brimstone butterfly that’s just landed in a park, think of its lightness” – this is the architects’ description of the buildings’ aesthetic. Moreover, close cooperation with the authorities ensured that this impression was kept free of cars – they approach via a narrow tunnel in the subterranean garage system; strict attention was paid during construction not to damage the roots of the trees.Save this picture!Building 2 – PlansSave this picture!Building 5 – PlansIn all, 23 flats were built, between 110 and 260 m² in size and with spacious balconies and terraces. What marks them all is their perfect use and generous feeling of space. Because of the few specified points of focus, the ground plans are very flexible so that the individual residents can design them just as they like; a criterion that intelligent architecture must fulfill, according to Gerda Maria Gerner. Providing for extra luxury and convenience are a concierge service, a lounge area and an event facility for hire.Save this picture!© Matthias RaigerHigh-Quality SustainabilityFor decades, the plot of land once harbored the residence of Federal Presidents. To do justice to it, much value was placed on the highest quality in building the houses, both in materials and in workmanship. Accordingly, the intermediate walls of the concrete framed construction was not made of plasterboard, for instance, but of brick, like the outer walls. Façade parts between the ground-reaching windows and wooden terrace doors were rendered manually in traditional handicraft, endowing the surface a superlative structure.Save this picture!© Matthias RaigerThe façade in a bright clay-grey tone retreats modestly into the background behind the surrounding balconies and terraces, accentuating the horizontal articulation of the façades. Wooden floors lead seamlessly from inside to outside – thanks to the high-quality surface treatment they defy the rigors of the weather. Heat insulation was also subject to exacting standards; this sets a special challenge because of the curvature of the buildings. But for the GERNER GERNER PLUS architects, the theme of sustainability doesn’t end by any means at the choice of material or the U-value.Save this picture!Building 5 – SectionsFifty deep geothermal probes were drilled into the earth, carefully avoiding the stock of trees and distributed across the whole plot of land; this means that the five residential buildings on the Hohe Warte manage without fossil raw materials and are heated and cooled exclusively with geothermal energy. Also, the e-car charging stations at each of the extra-wide parking places in the basement car park is a clear sign of commitment to sustainability.Save this picture!© Matthias RaigerProject gallerySee allShow lessBloomberg’s New European Headquarters Rated World’s Most Sustainable Office BuildingArchitecture NewsCultural Centre for Czech and Slovak Immigrants / Inglis Badrashi LoddoSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Hohe Warte, 1190 Vienna, AustriaLocation to be used only as a reference.

This serviced apartment and hotel in the suburbs of Phnom Penh, Cambodia, sits between Phnom Penh International Airport and the city’s downtown, in an area frequented primarily by foreign tourists and business travelers. In typical service apartments, shared spaces are fully separated from private living spaces, but in this project the client anticipated that people of many different nationalities would be using the facility, and therefore requested that the living spaces be as open as possible to the public spaces in order to create an environment that encourages casual interactions within the course of everyday life. Save this picture!© Akinobu KawabeThe structural frame that comprises the building’s skeleton is strongly constructed and intentionally contrasts with the scale of the interior spaces, creating the sensation that one is lost in backstreets even while inside the building. This helps to actively connect private and public zones. The generous common space delineated by the frame blocks direct sunlight while letting breezes pass through, providing a comfortable place to escape the hot, humid Southeast Asian climate. The private rooms are linked to the common areas by large windows and doors that open up the space and gently connect residents who would ordinarily tend to be disconnected from one another.  Save this picture!Section 01To encourage use by non-residents, the building allows for the simultaneous operation of a hotel and includes a restaurant with an open-air café on the first floor and a pool on the top floor. Collaboration with the adjacent sports club further helps to attract customers and enhance the project’s contribution to local employment and economic development. Save this picture!© Akinobu KawabeSave this picture!© Akinobu KawabeWith regard to construction, we found that the precision of local general contractors was still developing, but by separating structural elements such as posts and beams from interior features, we were able to eliminate the need to rely on precision construction. The quality of the design also improved as a result.Save this picture!© Akinobu KawabeProject gallerySee allShow lessGateway Theatre / ONG&ONG Pte LtdSelected ProjectsShenzhen Sea World Culture and Arts Center / Maki and AssociatesSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Sangkat Tuek Thla, Phnom Penh, CambodiaLocation to be used only as a reference.

K2 House is the second stage upper floor extension to a renovation completed by fmd architects in 2008. The original brief for a young bachelor, was revised to now meet the needs of a young family with pets. The clients wanted to maintain the initial design intent while adding further versatile spaces to a bustling home.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsThe original design intent, of angular forms deriving from the tight planning constraints, extends through the upper floor of stage 2. This cohesion of external and internal forms are further expressed through the light reflecting faceted internal elements being expressed on the dark exterior with triangular metal cladding and geometric forms wrapping around both the deck area and new build. The perforated metal elements providing both privacy, shelter and shade whilst creating a sense of depth and transparency to the extension.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!ElevationsSave this picture!First floor planThe sites constraints draw lines through the building, creating reference points to inform the large triangular window and bar joinery in the new upper floor lounge. This idea continues through the bathroom, stair balustrade and joinery details creating dynamic and structural spaces through the house.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsAs with the former renovation, retaining the existing building footprint was a key consideration, as outdoor spaces were already limited replanning within the envelope to achieve the required spatial and environmental considerations were major drivers behind the design approach. Hence the dwelling went vertical with a first floor extension including a new living space, deck area and bedroom with walk in robe. In order to fit within council setbacks and adhering to street sight lines, the extension is concealed from view from the street, internal areas worked into the existing roof line, maximising all available space.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsThe projects growth and versatility is testament to the enduring merits of quality design, by utilising the existing house envelope along with strategic skylights and angled ceiling lines – the extension enables the dwelling and family a new life whilst maximising the footprint of a small property.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsProject gallerySee allShow lessFlorence Culture and Art Exchange Centre / pendaSelected ProjectsBrazilian Artist Ernesto Neto Creates Giant Installation in Zurich’s Central StationArchitecture News Share ArchDaily K2 House / FMD ArchitectsSave this projectSaveK2 House / FMD Architects 2017 K2 House / FMD Architects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/897313/k2-house-fmd-architects Clipboard CopyHouses, Houses Interiors•Melbourne City, Australia Year: center_img “COPY” Architects: FMD Architects Area Area of this architecture project Australia CopyAbout this officeFMD ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsMelbourne CityAustraliaPublished on July 02, 2018Cite: “K2 House / FMD Architects” 02 Jul 2018.
