Dear Designers, Builders, and Dwellers,

ArchWeek Residential brings you housing news and analysis weekly from the editors of ArchitectureWeek.

A traditional house on Cape Cod by Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects Builders shines with a rare gleam of classic elegance:

"The client for this house on Cape Cod's Crystal Lake sought a modest and sweet country abode to replace a simple old summer cottage that sat between beautiful gardens and a sweeping lawn leading to narrow frontage on the freshwater lake.

"The pastoral site and picturesque gardens suggested English countryside cottages to the architects, Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects Builders, and this was an image that captured the client's imagination.

"The efficient rectangular form is crowned with double gables that subtly curve to extend their lines gently toward the landscape and provide this house with its welcoming face.

"Porches leading to terraces are placed on the front and back of the house to provide both lake- and garden-oriented outdoor living spaces. A large screened-in porch is the dominant space, at the center of the elevation, on the lakefront side. On the entry side, two porches welcome one from the curving driveway. To the southeast is a deep porch off the dining room, while to the northwest the entry porch features a gently curving archway that marks it as the front door..."

In Akbuk, Turkey, overlooking the Aegean Sea, a new
eco-reserve of small town fragments, like islands in a
preserved landscape of cultivated natural vegetation,
will be characterized by advanced technologies in
sustainability, while also anchored in the poetic
reverie of this ancient site. The nearby ancient Greek
town of Miletus inspires a compact gridded plan.

What is a groined vault?

Architecture Answer - for last issue's quiz...
First published in Venice in 1570, this influential book
was republished in Italian several times before being
published in English in 1715. It was divided into four
parts, the first on building materials and techniques,
the second on large private houses, the third on
streets, piazzas, bridges and basilicas, and the fourth
on temples. What is the title of this book (still
available today), and who is the author?
