    The Backyard Library By 3rdSpace

    From Design Milk:

    You might have noticed a trend over the last five or so years that takes the home office or guest room outside of the house and into the backyard. 3rdSpace continues the tradition in the form of a modular library studio in the Oxfordshire garden of a literature professor who was looking for a space to store her collection of books. The beauty of the design is that the rooms can be used for anything.

    The prefab system did away with the typical planning issues and time constraints that go along with traditional on-site building. The design can easily be flat-packed and moved to a new space if the homeowner was to relocate, making this a cost effective solution for people who move frequently.

    Modular Retrofit: Bamboo Micro-Homes in Deserted Factories

    A pragmatic twist on visionary plug-and-play architecture, this project combines a cheap and fast-growing material with existing (abandoned) infrastructure to address the extensive needs of existing informal communities of Hong Kong.

    Putting buildings within buildings, the Bamboo Micro-Dwelling plan was born of both practical realities and city-in-the-sky ideas of Utopian Modernists like Le Corbusier.

    Designed by AFFECT-T, each basic micro-dwelling starts out at  just a few meters in length, width and height, with essential cooking, sleeping and sitting areas. Thanks to their placement inside a larger deserted structure, these units have fewer active-system, insulation and cladding demands than autonomous exterior equivalents would.

    Like a more formalized (less-dystopian) version of Kowloon Walled City, the design calls for community and education spaces to be built into the open spaces of the factory floors and voids between individual dwellings.

    Within the bigger building around them, this group of “homes will be serviced through a singular backbone providing water and electricity to individual units and disposing of waste, while cooling, heating, structure, and enclosure are provided” at scale by their surroundings.

    At the individual-unit level, flexibility “aids in the overall adaptability of the larger community as units can be joined and easily separated and altered as the population changes. “

    The demand for such a solution definitely exists: in total, an estimated 280,000 Hong Kong residents are without permanent, stable and legal structures to call home.

    However, these micro-dwelling deployments are conceived of not as a permanent state but, rather, a transitional set of spaces. They simply make maximum use of available materials and existing buildings to create effective temporary communities for a population that needs to be shifted off the streets and out of shacks toward sustainable long-term housing.

I want to make a little courtyard home out of these. Each container would be a space. One for kitchen one for bath etc.

    Box Living - Architecture award

    Hot on the heels of celebrating the completion of their 100th house design, the team at boutique design-and-build practice Box Living has another reason to break out the bubbly.

    A Wellington house they designed and built for a couple on a modest budget has just been recognised in the Small Project Architecture category of the 2013 Wellington Architecture Awards.

    Pictured above, this Lower Hutt dwelling is compact in size yet big on design ideas. It features Box Living’s signature modular post-and-beam structural elements, which were adapted to a site that was not only petite, but came with the challenge of a storm-water drain that ran the length of the building platform.

    Box Living architect Tim Dorrington turned this problem into an opportunity, designing the house in two distinct forms: a living block surrounded by decks that seem to hover amidst the greenery; and a bedroom block raised a half storey which cleverly elevates it above the drain and provides storage and a garage below.

    CEO Dan Heyworth said the company was thrilled with their first-ever award from the New Zealand Institute of Architects.

    “We’re all about quality of design over quantity of space so this Award for Small Project Architecture is very important for us to be able to show that we can walk the talk.”
