Top 5 Architectural Designs for April.

Now I know what you’ll be thinking, I’m a little late to the April party, 25 days to be exact. But has anyone else felt like this month has run away from them? Maybe some of it was spent in a chocolate induced coma…

Back to the point, here I have put to gather 5 designs that have really caught my eye during this month on Dezeen. There have been some amazing designs lately it was hard to narrow it down. Now if your like me and look at Dezeen maybe 180927 times a day, these won’t be new stories to you, but just incase you haven’t got the time to catch up, here are the very worthwhile stories.

1. Micro Hostel by Zhang Ke.

This is an awesome design, the way the buildings design responds to the awkward space is inspiring. By projecting the rooms with chaotic angular faces, the tiny space feels larger and more dense.

2. Green Roof and Living wall in Vancouver Residence.

Now if you’ve read any of my other blogs, it’s obvious I am a fan of a living roof… and this project by Measured Architecture does this very well. I am also a fan of the design of the staircase in this house as well.

3. Vo Trong Nghia’s House

The combination of the industrial concrete and natural foliage in this is beautiful. The aim was to bring life from the outside to in, whilst also creating privacy.

4. StudioAC’s White box.

This is a truly beautiful design. I love the diversity of the industrial apartment mixed with the ‘White-Out’ sleeping nook. This is a place I could see myself living in, especially because of the black out kitchen wall.

5. Batay-Csorba’s Urban Towerhouses.

And last but definitely not least, this beautiful facade on these townhouses. I am a huge fan of the brick cladding here, it not only creates an interesting look for the structure, it also creates more depth by casting of amazing shadows that change at different points in the day. Everything about this design is unique, right down to the massive graffiti walls covering the courtyards.
