HOUSE IN ESTORIL in Lisbon, Portugal by TARGA atelier

 
March 4th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: TARGA atelier

The House in Estoril refurbishment project has taken as starting point the pre-existing layout with some relevant spatial qualities deserving to be preserved and explored. Conversely, it was necessary  to adapt the house to contemporary life, to become functional and in line with the expectable comfort requirements. The central area is assumed as the aggregator element, minimalist and debugged, using the stairs as a  continuous and fluid gesture, to link the two clearly distinct floors: the ground floor gathering the social areas of the house, is quite fluid and all the adjacent defining spaces establish a complementary relationship with the square central hall. The bookcase intersects the volumetry and provides a more human scale opposing to the organic line of the guard. The main entrance releases  the discovery of a large space with double height and surrounding areas (living room and dining room at opposite ends) and leads to the kitchen which gained new proportions and closes the last side of the square. The “1st” floor functions as a walking gallery to provide access to the rooms, peeking over the lobby. The colors and materials were selected with the primary aim of emphasizing the simplicity of the new geometry design and promoting pre-existing qualities

Hampton/Queenslander house renovation in Brisbane, Australia by Baahouse + Baastudio

 
March 4th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Baahouse + Baastudio

Set amongst a leafy hilly area in Brisbane’s inner city suburb Norman Park, Greg Taylor and Hayley Lewis approached Baahouse + BaaStudio to assist them for ideas and planning in renovating their existing 1880’s Queenslander family home. Their existing house is typical of many Queenslanders, whilst they have some aesthetically pleasing features’, the house was hidden from the street down a dark path, leading to a small cold house requiring a lot of upkeep and maintenance to bring it up to today’s modern living standards. Adding to the fact the house was cold and dark, there were many unusable spaces that could not be utilised, and the dining and lounge family areas were cramped and small.

Wine Cellar “U Modráka” in Moravia, Czech Republic by ORA (Oiginal Regional Architecture)

 
March 4th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: ORA (Oiginal Regional Architecture) 

The refurbishment of the wine cellar in Vrbovec was our first project. The builder is a wine grower and father of Barbora.
Final design is based on the sketch of the investor who was completely sure how the wine cellar should look like. We designed a new entrance hall with a small kitchen and toilet in the area where the old cabin used to be. We cleaned more than hundred years old underground part and kept it in its original state. The biggest change is new three meters wide skylight which brings sunlight down to the cellar. We recycled old vineyard posts (very similar was used on the borders with Austria during the Iron Curtain time) to build a new archive for bottles. The archive remains the vineyard.
