Acoustic Alchemy in 14 Crowhurst Drive by hyla architects

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

Article source: hyla architects

The living, dining and kitchen areas of this 2-storey semi-detached house have been designed as one large AV and entertainment space, efficiently soundproofed by double glazed sliding-folding doors. The two side walls that flank this space were intentionally built to taper towards the rear.
This creates a slightly funnelled space that not only enhances the acoustic qualities of the room but also enables storage niches along the thicker ends of the walls to house hi-fi equipment.

CASA PETRINI VILLANI IN Polignano a Mare, Bari, Italy BY arch. Antonella MARI

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

Article source: arch. Antonella MARI

The house for a psychologist, a nurse and their young daughter is designed as the extension of an existing one-floor building in the historic center of Polignano a Mare, in southern Italy. While the old tufo facade remains almost unmodified, the new volume above is clearly defined through the use of lighter materials: a double skin system – made of  glass/aluminum large windows screened by steel and wood retractable panels – allows natural light in, while preventing heating.
