archisustech This "rustic cabin with a modern aesthetic" is the perfect combination of tiny house living and sustainable architectural excellence. Designed to have everything you need (and keep everything in its place), the small Wedge cabin boasts a bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen/living space and a deck. The siding made of reclaimed Wyoming snowfence is both recycled and rustic-looking.

archisustech If you love the tall vaulted ceilings and abundant natural light characteristic of gothic cathedrals, prepare to be enthralled by this church-inspired home in Sweden. Designed by Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture, the Villa Bondö boasts breathtaking lakeside views through an extruded gable with a fully glazed end wall. The timber-clad structure was built to plus energy standards and includes eco-friendly materials and an LED lighting system.

To maximize views towards the adjacent Gravsjön lake, Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture installed large sections of glazing that offer panoramic views of the landscape. The three-story home is topped with a Rheinzink roof and clad in vertical lengths of larch, which will develop a grayish patina over time.

archisustech Chapel Hill architect Arielle Condoret Schechter came up with a design for modern small houses for those who might not have the budget for traditional architectural services. Custom-designed plans for Micropolis houses are affordable, and can also work for small offices, art studios, and guest quarters. The plans can be purchased from the architect herself and used to build your own small home.

The architect’s idea was to provide designs for “people who were looking for something between the standard builder-designed home plans market and full architectural services.” These designs are an affordable alternative to modern homes, and were inspired by 19th century small houses designed by Gustav Stickley, as well as Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian houses. They follow the tradition of building reproducible home designs for middle-class families.

  •   archisustech @beecarroll In terms of sustainability, particularly in the context of social sustainability, encouraging affordable housing does not need to constrain residents’ housing and non-housing choices but rather it has the potential to improve the social sustainable environment in communities and cities. 1d
  •   beecarroll @archisustech Awesome! All great sustainable practices. So often the term is used incorrectly, it keeps hope alive to see great work like this being done. Excellent point on the concept of social sustainability and housing as well...Thanks for sharing. 19h

archisustech Architect and farmer, Patrick Bradley, has managed to combine his two professions by designing the brilliant Grillagh Water House, an amazingly sophisticated and sustainable country retreat set on the architect's own land. Located in the picturesque Northern Ireland countryside, Bradley constructed the entire second floor of his home out of four repurposed shipping containers, creating a perfect example of how cost effective design and sustainable architecture doesn't have to mean forgoing style.

Although architecture and farming may not be two careers that typically go hand in hand, with his beautiful new farm house, Patrick Bradley gives us a sublime example of how pragmatic necessity and sophisticated design can brilliantly compliment each other.
