* Residential Architecture: Hanaha House by mA-style architects

Posted by the editors on Saturday, 21 July 2012

Residential Architecture: Hanaha House by mA-style architects: “..The courtyard, known as hanaha, creates a space of spiral movement and familial interaction..The family can move spirally around the flowers and trees to observe and enjoy them from different perspectives..”  Despite a truly minimal architect’s description, Hanaha House offers interesting interior volumes, interior courtyard, ample glazing, natural light, privacy, exposed timber rafters and interesting fenestration..

* Residential Architecture: Outotunoie House by mA-style

Posted by the editors on Tuesday, 19 June 2012

Residential Architecture: Outotunoie House by mA-style: “..positioned on opposing sides of the plot, two solid volumes are spaced apart to form a parking space beneath the residence. the pair of stone block elements contain the entry, stairways, private bedrooms and water-related areas such as the washrooms and kitchen. a glass block containing the living space bridges the structures, cantilevering beyond their footprints to offer a panoramic view of the adjacent paddy field..the frameless floor-to-ceiling windows eliminate a boundary between the interior and nature. the elevated floor plate also takes the frequent flooding of the nearby river into account..”  Extensive glazing, natural light, views; interesting interior volumes, wood flooring and other significant wood elements including an attractive wood/steel staircase; interesting secondary fenestration, contextual sensibility..
