Displaying a highly minimalist architecture approach, Y7-House by Architect Show is located in a scenic landscape in Omura, Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan. The rectangular box-shaped residence takes advantage of a hillside position, ensuring extensive views over Omura Bay. Elevated on a concrete base, the structure is intended to have a minimum impact on the environment. This way, a cantilever is created on the north and west sides, which gives passers-by the feeling of a floating home.
Moreover, the architect gave the street facade a 3D effect, by protruding and recessing portions of the main volume, while visually emphasizing the differences through color. The interior design is minimalist, with wood employed extensively for a welcoming effect. Efforts were made to hide lighting equipment and air-conditioning, in order to achieve a high level of simplicity, with focus on peaceful living. Generously-sized windows, a terrace and a deck offer good means for contemplating the neighboring bay. How do you personally appreciate the overall design of this residence?

What is new and exciting now can quickly begin to look tired and out of fashion, so the best buildings don’t just consider what will be interesting to look at now, but also how it might look to people in five, fifty or even a hundred years’ time. 2013’s hotly contested RIBA Stirling Prize went to Witherford Watson Mann Architects for their work on Astley Castle, Warwickshire. In what RIBA Past President Stephen Hodder has described as an extreme retrofit, the project essentially saw a new building inserted subtly into the heart of the old, with a new, two storey residence now hidden within the sandstone walls of the ruins of this medieval castle, to be used as a holiday home for up to eight guests

Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.
