WG+P unwraps low-cost timber-clad home by Jonathan Walland

Waind Gohil + Potter Architects has completed this four-bedroom house in Oxford. The West London-based practice’s 230m2 scheme has been built on a brownfield site which was both contaminated and in a flood risk zone. 

The project features large expanses of glazing which bring in natural light and provide views of the garden.

The timber-framed house was completed for just £1,333 per m² which the architects put down to establishing the construction process early on, the timber frame, bespoke details and prefabrication.

Vivienda Mungulia by Hoz Fontan Arquitectos by Jonathan Walland

Hoz Fontan Arquitectos designed Vivienda Mungia, a contemporary residence located in Spain.

“The house is located in a plot of land with a steep slope in a residential urbanization near Mungia. Taking advantage of the plot’s unevenness, it is divided in two staggered levels. The first level gathers the access, garage and guest’s room, whereas the second level, partially buried, holds the kitchen, dining room, living room and the main bedroom. This layer configuration has a continuation in the garden, where one can find the swimming pool.” – Hoz Fontan Arquitectos
