Comments Off on Modular shed-like addition turns a 1930s bungalow into an open, light-filled home

A 1930s California Bungalow in Sydney received a modern shed-like addition that maximizes the usability of the original structure, adding plenty open-concept space and natural light. Architect Prineas designed the affordable addition as a modular structure that’s easy to build and alter for optimal flexibility, while honoring the original design of the home. The Allen Key House comprises an original 1930s bungalow and an modern, modular addition conceived as a shed-like structure. The latter emphasizes the kitchen and entertaining areas and acts as the true heart of the home.

They connected the original structure and the addition with a glazed link which creates two internal courtyards and introduces more natural light into the en suite and study. Related: Timber-clad Cut-away Roof House in Sydney puts a modern spin on traditional pitched roofs Built on an extremely tight budget, the rear addition relies on a grid system that forms double-height spaces through modular design. This system of modules allows simple reconfiguration of courtyards, light wells and stairs. + Architect Prineas Via Architizer Photos by Chris Warnes

Comments Off on Congress requires NASA to build outer space living module by 2018

In an uncharacteristic burst of productivity, the United States Congress has passed a law that provides a boost to NASA scientists working hard to make space a more habitable place for humans. Along with a desperately needed transportation funding bill , the United States Congress wrapped up its legislative year by passing an omnibus budget bill signed into law by President Obama that requires NASA to devote at least $55 million out of its $350 million Exploration Research and Development funds to produce “a prototype deep space habitation module” by 2018.
