Casa C in Madesimo, Italy by Enrico Scaramellini Architetto

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

Article source: ESarch

Interior renovation: composition of flaps

The project developed itself recognizing characteristic elements which become immediately binding.

First of all it’s established the existing distribution. The project starts from a “no project act”; the choice move attention on a different project level.

The new floor, made with oak boards, becomes the form generative element. It goes up on walls, folds itself and fills some parts of ceiling. New geometries, in an almost independent form, redefine the perception of interior spaces. A new element, the red color, is introduced as a clue, as a bond. Hollow parts of furniture or colored bands in movement on the wardrobe door, become direct connection element with exterior.

Tusculum Street Residence in Sydney, Australia by Smart Design Studio (designed using Bentley Microstation)

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

Article source: Smart Design Studio

This exciting renovation and extension of a turn-of-the-century terrace house in Sydney’s Potts Point focuses on a grand and gracefully spiralling stair that forms the pivotal junction of the old and new parts of the house. The staircase, spanning the width of the building, features delicate fan-like steel treads cantilevered from the central steel post and winding their way past six split levels, offset between the old and new sides of the house. The stair was conceived as the element that grafts the contemporary and new minimal structure to the refined, trimmed and formal older portion of the dwelling.
