New Approaches to Residential Architecture

Street Tree Pods – dezeen.

It is interesting to see new approaches to residential architecture. Some exciting new developments in London, UK and Osaka, Japan were recently featured in Dezeen Magazine.

Street Tree Pods, teardrop-shaped structures made from wood, designed to merge with existing or new trees, in the city of London are an innovative approach to starter homes and solutions for the homeless.

A house made up of a geometric pattern of square-shaped rooms connected by rhombus-shaped circulation areas creates a dynamic space, making it easier for the family to spend time together and welcome outside spaces in.

In London University of Westminster graduate Matthew Chamberlain has designed a sustainable treehouse to provide starter homes, whilst also tackling the city’s high pollution levels.Taking up the same amount of space as a single car-parking bay, each structure offers short-term accommodation to a single occupant. Chamberlain envisages students, young professionals, first home buyers and homeless people as the occupants.

Tato Archiects, led by architect Yo Shimada, designed a house in Hokusetsu, Osaka, for a family who wanted a dynamic home that makes it easier to spend time together. Rather than sticking to a regular orthogonal floor plan, Shimada developed a pattern featuring 12 squares connected by rhombuses composed of two equilateral triangles.

“The house is filled with autonomous spaces that can accommodate changes in lifestyle,” said Shimada. “It is a crystalline labyrinth where the spaces are repeatedly reflected into a prismatic figure.” Inside the house, one of the square spaces accommodates a decked terrace adjoining an angular concrete courtyard. Another rhombus-shaped void is split into a triangular terrace and a compact garden. Tato Architects regularly experiments with new ways of using space in domestic architecture.

The Finishing Touch, based in Melbourne, supply high quality, lightweight, decorative architectural mouldings to builders in Australia.
