House in Ofuna is an unconventional Japanese home envisioned by LEVEL Architects and located in Kamakura City. Its volumetric architecture approach is highly original and features elements with a twist: “The cutaway corner is able to establish a direct view onto the small hills west of the house, as well as retaining privacy from the street below. The use of natural wood material for the extruded volume itself allowed the design to incorporate a hard edge at the cutaway corner, creating a sharp and distinct separation from the rest of the design“, explained the architects.

All interiors encircle a terrace, home to a lovely tree. The first level accommodates the bedrooms, while the second hosts a living/dining/kitchen space with a ceiling height of more than 3.5 meters. This particular area of the house is filled with natural light all day long and allows the family to interact in a healthy, playful environment.

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

These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.
