Record Houses

Record Houses 2014

It is so true: in selecting RECORD Houses, the editors are often drawn to taut modernist planes, spaces that flow indoors and out, elegant details, and crafted materials. These tend to arrive in rectilinear packages, like the floating concrete volumes of Studio MK27's Casa P in São Paulo. Yet . . . not all the time. This year, a number of architects came up with schemes that veer away from the type, with steeply angled roofs, winding plans, and twisting or split volumes. Even some rectilinear houses break the mold: one has an exterior surface that dematerializes behind video images; another seems to hover above the site. While certain architectural attributes crop up year after year, the ones that offer a fresh spin demonstrate the building type as an inexhaustible mine for exploration and inspiration.
