Text description provided by the architects. Situated near Melbourne on the Mornington Peninsula, this project on the Mornington foreshore creates two double storey houses on a lot facing Port Phillip Bay and bordering the mouth of a local creek.
The houses utilise a palette of materials appropriate to their coastal location and surrounds, integrating an indigenous coastal landscape to create a building with a sensitivity to its location. The design seeks to bring foreshore pier proportions and detailing across the road and contribute to the public realm in the way it interacts with the creek mouth.
The houses have been designed and built using Habitech's modular flat packed wall and roof panels. The project was completed on a technically challenging site in
Text description provided by the architects. The BE house is in a residential area of Tigre, Buenos Aires.
The desire of this family was to share the house with their friends and family. They wanted to live in a house that welcomed and "hugged" incoming guests, but at the same time generated the necessary privacy for the meeting.
The house is divided according to its program (public, private and services) in different volumes that are differentiated by their materiality.
The services volume is of cement, harder and more closed, and turns around the west, protecting the house from the more complicated hours of the sun and the views of the neighbors.

The search for design spaces that characterize the residence is marked in the belief of time as a design pattern, which takes different logical structures depending on their specific characteristics in relation to what surrounds them. In this sense, the PRO.CRE.AR House adopts as premise two instances: the first in relation to social structures and the second in relation to technology and costs.
Such social structures take form from flexibility as "dynamic space" where the rationalization of it creates, in an empirically way, the spatial experience.
Thus, the residence is built for a growing family, that is, for an hour it is a couple with a

Stone and wood predominate. Surfaces covered in texcal stone and vegetation build habitable half-lit enclosures.
Water is present both inside and outside the house, refreshing all spaces, filling them with air and sound. Like a cloister, the tour of the house intertwines interior and exterior all the way to the terrace and the great

Closer to any natural thing, in its ambiguous scale, this small building is more than a hut but less than a house: it is a cottage. As an opaque block, a monolithic object heavily anchored at the edge of a cliff, it is facing a sea-lion reserve on the Pacific Ocean.
In its under dimensioned thickness, in its narrow and tall proportion, the building

After sheltering the homeowners for two decades, the structure was initially slated for demolition to make way for the family’s new home. Instead, the firm and client decided to repurpose and relocate the existing structure, preserving the spirit and memory embedded in this place.
Exposed timber frame beams and rafters were carefully dismantled and numbered for reassembly. Re-engineered with new galvanized steel connectors, the rebuilt timber frame was extended to complete the entire barn interior.
The new building features spaces for art projects, repairs, vehicle maintenance and storage, along with the occasional party. A mezzanine was added to take advantage of the existing height within the structure and to segregate activities.

The architectural objective was to achieve the maximal optimization of land which is 200 square metres (2,152 square feet), which would promote cohabitation as a family and at the same time, offer intimate spaces with the privacy required for each of the family’s daily activities, taking care of the relationship with the exterior, so the privacy character is achieved.
The aim was to create an interior space that would articulate the whole house and where family coexistence would develop. This was solved by a longitudinal dynamic space that goes from the street to an interior courtyard.

On the Korean Peninsula, evaluated as a suzerain of ginseng, which produces the best quality ginseng in the world, having the blessed natural environment, especially, recognized as the one with the best quality, Korean Ginseng from Punggi is a perennial plant, cultivated under an artificial shade, called Sampoeojang in Koreafor 3-6 years. Ginseng, which has a slower rate of growth and more difficult cultivation conditions than other crops, grows under Sampoeojang. Like this, Sampoeojang, which keeps ginseng growing well for a long time is a ‘ground for cultivation’ and can be said to be a ‘house of ginseng’
