Inserted into a gridded plot and enclosed by fragmented gardens and paved areas, House L27, stands apart from its neighbors. Designed by Jos&eacute; Cadilhe of&nbsp;<a href="http://www.dionisolab.com/" target="_blank">dIONISO LAB</a>, the home plays with the standard geometry of the surrounding construction by offering a more fluid alternative in which the exterior becomes the central, organizing space.&nbsp;</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/149983280/sustainable-slate-tiles-dress-this-danish-family-s-energy-efficient-future-house Sustainable slate tiles dress this Danish family’s energy-efficient “Future House” Sponsor 2016-12-19T15:24:00-05:00 >2017-02-06T06:16:37-05:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/se/sefts38pu0sirsjf.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/se/sefts38pu0sirsjf.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/se/sefts38pu0sirsjf.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/se/sefts38pu0sirsjf.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><p>In Scandinavian design, it&rsquo;s the little things that count. When this Danish family wanted to design and build their own home, they wanted all the little things to add up to a balance of energy efficiency with light and atmosphere, cost with comfort, aesthetics with sustainability. All that would combine to create something that lasted, both functionally and aesthetically. The resulting &ldquo;Future House&rdquo; by Danish firm <a href="http://novaform.dk/" target="_blank">Novaform Arkitekterne</a> gets the job done elegantly, harnessing a modest structure to diverse ends.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/149977881/behind-the-fa-ade-workac-s-hidden-penthouse-3d-modelled-capitals-and-other-subtle-interventions-in-the-obsidian-building Behind the façade: WORKac's hidden penthouse, 3D-modelled capitals, and other subtle interventions in 'the Obsidian Building' Nicholas Korody 2016-11-11T13:42:00-05:00 >2017-02-24T18:25:05-05:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/13/137b1dishkc83a1b.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/13/137b1dishkc83a1b.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/13/137b1dishkc83a1b.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/13/137b1dishkc83a1b.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><p>In the latter half of the 19th century, areas of New York City, in particular SoHo, got a facelift courtesy of a major new technology: cast-iron. Cheap, sturdy, and easily to install, cast-iron fa&ccedil;ades were used to dress up older industrial buildings and attract new tenants. The material was pliable yet durable, and could be easily cast into ornate forms, which were often informed by classical Italian and French designs with an American twist. More than just an aesthetic embellishment, replacing the fa&ccedil;ade dramatically changed the experience of the interior, allowing for enlarged windows and higher ceilings.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/149963618/stripped-of-cosmetics-but-imbued-with-substance-inside-the-berard-residence Stripped of cosmetics, but imbued with substance: inside the Berard Residence Julia Ingalls 2016-08-26T09:20:00-04:00 >2016-09-05T22:04:40-04:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/06/060i35la5ltwa50q.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/06/060i35la5ltwa50q.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/06/060i35la5ltwa50q.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/06/060i35la5ltwa50q.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><p>As conceptually oriented housing design goes, the Berard Residence has a bold aim: it attempts to shift the preconception of housing's elemental function away from shelter and into a more experiential mode, concerned with the qualities of human existence itself.

As students experimented with new applications for these everyday materials, they also learned that it doesn't just have to end up in a landfill.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/105482832/show-case-schapenboeten-holiday-home-by-benthem-crouwel-architects Show Case: ‘Schapenboeten’ Holiday Home by Benthem Crouwel Architects Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2014-07-31T19:03:00-04:00 >2017-02-24T18:29:52-05:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/iz/izksux4vbx4tsku0.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/iz/izksux4vbx4tsku0.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/iz/izksux4vbx4tsku0.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/iz/izksux4vbx4tsku0.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><p>Slightly quirky, modest and covered in fishnets, <a href="http://archinect.com/firms/cover/64208796/benthem-crouwel-architects" target="_blank">Benthem Crouwel Architect</a>&rsquo;s holiday house turns a piece of Dutch vernacular into a sleek but cozy nest.

California&rsquo;s famous Pacific Coast Highway winds down the state, with alternating western views of ocean and forest, with little else visible from the narrow road. But draped over a precarious hillside on Big Sur&rsquo;s south coast, Fougeron Architects&rsquo; Fall House is a frontier-cabin like no other, on the very edge of the country overlooking the Pacific.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/96413581/showcase-residence-in-weinheim-by-wannenmacher-m-ller-architekten ShowCase: Residence in Weinheim by Wannenmacher-Möller Architekten Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2014-03-25T19:05:00-04:00 >2017-02-24T18:32:11-05:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/04/04qb37s4kumj1qih.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/04/04qb37s4kumj1qih.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/04/04qb37s4kumj1qih.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/04/04qb37s4kumj1qih.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><p>While designed as a private residence, the shape of Wannenmacher-M&ouml;ller's Weinheim Residence has inklings of cultural and industrial institutions. The home's stretched linearity is a sleek version of the stacked shipping container aesthetic, made of aluminum and glass on the ground floor, and light-colored stone on the upper. Inside, surfaces are similarly light and clean, resembling a bright and airy white-cube gallery. Built for a family of five, the house morphs neatly from two stories into three, as the steep plot slopes downwards from the street-facing front into the back garden.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/94820100/showcase-casa-h-by-bojaus-arquitectura ShowCase: Casa H by Bojaus Arquitectura Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2014-03-05T14:51:00-05:00 >2017-02-24T18:32:20-05:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/1a/1az6j99bn6ifrya5.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/1a/1az6j99bn6ifrya5.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/1a/1az6j99bn6ifrya5.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/1a/1az6j99bn6ifrya5.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><p><a href="http://www.bojaus.com/" target="_blank">Bojaus Arquitectura</a>&rsquo;s Casa H is a modernist white cube, but it&rsquo;s also not what you think it is. The cube is sometimes interpreted as a reflex towards neutrality, to get the spaces and the inhabitants within to speak for themselves. But Casa H isn&rsquo;t arbitrarily a white cube; it&rsquo;s the logically resulting form of rationalist, as well as aesthetic, concerns.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/92535295/student-works-foundhouse-by-patrick-beseda-and-lacy-williams Student Works: FOUNDhouse by Patrick Beseda and Lacy Williams Nam Henderson 2014-02-05T13:56:00-05:00 >2016-07-29T20:41:02-04:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/vs/vso6478t6bm17bds.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/vs/vso6478t6bm17bds.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/vs/vso6478t6bm17bds.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/vs/vso6478t6bm17bds.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><p>When Patrick Beseda and Lacy Williams began realizing their ambition to build a micro-dwelling, they began with a Wikihouse design. The <a href="http://www.wikihouse.cc/" target="_blank">WikiHouse project</a> is an open-source library of construction sets for houses, where anyone can submit, edit, and use the designs. The design's components can all be "printed" from plywood using a CNC machine, and are simple enough to assemble with minimal training. Lacy and Patrick, both MArch students at the University of Colorado, Denver, set out to build their own micro-Wikihouse last summer, personalizing the template along their way.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/80999538/showcase-house-in-mosteir-by-arquitectos-matos ShowCase: House in Mosteirô by Arquitectos Matos Archinect 2013-09-04T15:39:00-04:00 >2017-02-24T18:32:41-05:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/wg/wgigsmw8bkyalepi.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/wg/wgigsmw8bkyalepi.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/wg/wgigsmw8bkyalepi.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/wg/wgigsmw8bkyalepi.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><p><a href="http://archinect.com/features/tag/1518/showcase" target="_blank"><strong>ShowCase</strong></a> is an on-going feature series on Archinect, presenting exciting new work from designers representing all creative fields and all geographies.</p><p><em>We are always accepting nominations for upcoming ShowCase features -
