Zaha Hadid Architects’ island homes double down on flexibility

Though it has produced residential high-rises, Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) has only ever created one house … until now. The firm is planning an island community of timber houses that will feature sustainable design and offer would-be homeowners a lot of flexibility over the size and style of the home they’re purchasing.

Roatán Próspera Residences is planned for Honduras’ Roatán Island, and will include an undisclosed number of homes ranging from small studio apartments to larger family residences. They will be prefabricated nearby from locally-sourced sustainably-grown timber, and assembled on-site.

Judging by the renders, ZHA’s signature style translates just as well to wood as it does to concrete, and the homes will be defined by large curving roofs and generous glazing. Their interiors will be arranged around open living areas with conversation pits, and there will also be spacious terrace areas.

"The residential designs are a specific ecological and social response to the climate, terrain and culture of Roatán in the Caribbean, the largest of the Bay Islands of Honduras," explains ZHA
“The residential designs are a specific ecological and social

Vinyl siding loses lead as top cladding for new homes

Vinyl siding has lost its 25-year lead to stucco as the most popular cladding choice for newly constructed houses, while fiber cement gained ground to round out the top three exterior wall materials.

Stucco was installed on 27 percent of the 903,000 single-family houses built in 2019 compared to vinyl siding on 25 percent and fiber cement on 21 percent, according to the characteristics of new housing data collected in a survey of construction by the U.S. Census Bureau.

Of the other exterior siding materials, brick was installed on 20 percent of new houses, wood on 5 percent, and “other,” as in concrete block, stone and aluminum, on 2 percent, the survey says.

In the latest shift, stucco gained 2 percent, fiber cement picked up 1 percent, vinyl siding and brick each lost 1 percent, and use of wood and other materials held steady, the survey also says.

The figures,

New West Dallas homes bring high design to an urban neighborhood

One of Dallas’ oldest neighborhoods is home to a cutting-edge new residential community.

Called the Haciendas, the project will include more than six dozen high-design homes being built near Fort Worth Avenue in West Dallas.

The one-of-a-kind development is a project of Oaxaca Interests, the same company that built the popular Sylvan Thirty mixed-use development on Sylvan Avenue west of downtown.

Just a few blocks away, Oaxaca Interests has built the first four of what it plans to be a larger group of style-forward houses on North Edgefield Avenue.

Designed by award-winning architect Lake Flato of San Antonio and Austin, the homes marry an outside industrial look with bright and airy interior spaces.

They range in size from 1,550 to just under 1,900 square feet, with stucco exteriors and metal roofs, and they’re built in joined modules.

“The kitchen and living area is in one module, and the primary bedroom

How to Paint Your Home’s Exterior

The $500 Makeover

Photo by Sarah Wilson

A fresh paint job has the power to totally transform the look of your house in less time and for less cash than any other remodeling project. That thin skin of resin and pigment also protects your investment, shielding it from sun, wind, and rain—until the paint begins to crack and peel, that is. Then it’s time to button up with a couple of new coats. Properly applied, new paint should last for a good 15 years, provided you use top-quality materials, apply them with care (and with an eye on the weather), and, most important, clean and sand every surface first. Here’s what you need to know to get a first-class finish on your home’s exterior.

A thorough scrubbing is a must before painting any exterior surface. It removes the dirt and broken-down paint residues that keep

Peeping inside celebrities homes has become the new must-watch TV

Trevor Noah, who has been broadcasting from a desk inside his Manhattan apartment amid the coronavirus pandemic, kicked off his Tuesday night edition of “The Daily Social Distancing Show” by addressing the many people who have emailed him to ask about his taste in objects and art.
“I’ve been getting a lot of questions from you online asking about things behind me. The other day people asked me why the plant was dying, so I’ve replaced it now,” he quipped.

He’s filled his space with art and books, like “Wild Beautiful Places,” a National Geographic photography book featuring shots from around the globe, along with a book about Barack Obama.

Noah said people were also curious about the “round things” in his home that look like sculptures.

“These are actually African heritage domes, which a mother hands down to her son to remind him of the bond they’ll always share,”
