    The Houses Issue, Jan/Feb 2020

    In its January/February 2020 issue, Azure explores domestic architecture establishing new house rules for living across the globe.

    Multi-generational living is on the rise, bringing extended families together under one roof for a host of economic, social and cultural reasons. And just as no two families are alike, no two multi-gen models adhere to the same principles. In B.C.’s capital, for instance, D’Arcy Jones Architects takes shared living in a distinctly modern direction by shrouding two separate yet connected volumes with sheets of sculptural galvanized aluminum, while the Czech practice DDAANN links a series of traditional gable-roofed cottages outside of Prague with a central indoor-outdoor living space to create a summer home for three generations of a single family.

    Meanwhile, a Jenga-like single-family house by REM’A Arquitectos nestles seamlessly into a hillside in Portugal, its staggered volumes arranged to be simultaneously private and exposed. And in the realm of multi-unit residences, Waechter Architecture is redefining the norm with the Origami complex in Portland, Oregon: The low-slung row of townhouses features sharply angled roofs and uniquely pleated surfaces that give each unit its own personality while still aligning with the neighbourhood’s existing architecture.

    Also, jet-setting Chile-based architects Mauricio Pezo and Sofia von Ellrichshausen shed light on the deep philosophy that drives their unorthodox work.

    Plus: The argument for parasitic housing, Sir David Adjaye’s Ruby City art museum has Texans seeing red (in a good way) and the Toronto studio I-V fronts a new cannabis shop in Saskatchewan with a fake laundromat.
