Best MoCo Architecture This Week
by Harry / February 14, 2009

This week's picks:

+ Wespi de Meuron's prefab Wood house in Caviano at Arch Daily, "To achieve an optimization of costs, it has been chosen a prefabricated timber construction, a compact volume, simple details and low cost materials."

+ Taliesin Mod.Fab at PrairieMod which has been blogging the progress of the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture's pre-fab project since it broke ground. Now complete, "The one-bedroom, 600-square-foot prototype residence relies on panelized construction to allow for speed and economy on site or in a factory."

+ Gage Clemenceau Architects' interiors for two residences in New York at Arch Daily.

+ Form & Forest's prefab flat pack cabins designed by D'Arcy Jones Design at Jetson Green, ranging from 635 to 1559 square feet. Above, the 635 sq. ft. Cowboy which "comes with a kitchen, dining room, living room, bedroom, bathroom, laundry, and covered porch."

+ Hive Modular's prefab B-Line Small at Jetson Green, "the home maximizes southern exposure, sits lightly with a small, 1410 square-foot plan, and takes advantage of an urban infill lot."

+ Lode Architecture's Maison Bois Fourneville at Remodelista, "designed as a weekend retreat rather than as a conventional family home."

+ Monolab Architects' Body House at Judit Bellostes, "a hub in which three worlds come together: a living area sandwiched between a base and a roof terrace."

+ Blake Dollahite's renovated Austin house at Materialicious is for sale. Previously featured in Dwell here.

+ Takeshi Hosaka Architects' Love House at rolu | dsgn, "despite being in the middle of the city, love house manages to focus your senses on environmental conditions like the weather, the sounds; hosaka even ponders the presence of bees combing through the fruit tree."

+ Teruo Miyahara's House Uc at SpaceInvading and Arcprospect, "The site measures approximately 57 m2 in size: approximately 12 meters deep, 6 meters across where it faces the north road, and 2.7 meters across at the deepest end. The design for House Uc therefore needed to focus on the ideal form of an urban detached house within the constraints of the site itself as well as laws and regulations."

+ C18 Architects' Haus auf der Alb at SpaceInvading and Yatzer, "a simple cube in dialog with nature".

+ Cinco Patas al Gato's open plan country house Casa Tuscania at Plataforma Arquitectura.

+ sculp(it)'s four story, 2.4 meter wide Small House in Antwerp at the style files, "Every floor has its function: the ground floor is the work-area, the first floor is for eating, the second floor for relaxing, the top floor for sleeping and on the roof you can enjoy the view from the bathtub."
