* Residential Architecture: Pelo House by mA-style architects

Posted by the editors on Sunday, 8 July 2012

Residential Architecture: Pelo House by mA-style architects: “..Pelo is Japanese onomatopoeic word, it expresses the sounds that we peel one’s off..The wall that is peeled off creates new space and new aperture..The roof that is peeled off creates spatial extent to the sky..The wall that is peeled off turns to the eaves and wraps aperture..The yard that is peeled off turns to the floor and creates flat extent..The only action Pelo, that peel one’s off, creates new space and engineers these special quality well..Pelo assumes the various functions and elements, and also would peel new page about what house should be off..”  Nevertheless, the curvilinear geometry offers an appealing (hmmm..) divergence from the superabundance of rectilinearity..

* 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..
