Bernal Heights Remodel 2 in San Francisco’s by Sven Lavine Architecture

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

Article source: Sven Lavine Architecture

What seems like a pretty unassuming little bed/bath remodel located in San Francisco’s Bernal Heights was actually one of our tougher projects. The owners had a couple challenging goals:

The first one was to fit a legal bathroom into one side of their master bedroom, which is located in the vaulted roof of their Victorian without adding any dormers or expansions.

Occupational Activity Center INCE in Mengeš, Slovenia by JEREB IN BUDJA ARHITEKTI D.O.O.

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014


The building of the Occupational Activity Center INCE Mengeš raises the question of placing modern-day architecture in the historical scenery of rural environment.
 The house located by the stream, on a distinctly elongated territory, is designed to follow village center typology and the organizational characteristics of old farm houses which are known for their separation of a public courtyard by the road and a backyard – a private garden by the stream, while focusing on the center’s specific program of institutional care and occupational therapy.

A HOUSE FOR ART COLLECTOR in Geneva, Switzerland by ChristianDupraz Architects

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

Article source: ChristianDupraz Architects

I’d like a massive house, safe and fragrant like my childhood. I will make you a sheltered house like the ones I love.” It is through an on going conversation between the architect and client that the realisation of this house was achieved. On an exceptional site, along the edge of the centre of Geneva, this white house, with its pure geometry, is a part in itself. If the square plan is the basis for its composition, it surprises through its malleability and functional complexity.

Safe Haven Bathhouse in Ban Tha Song Yang, Thailand by TYIN tegnestue Architects

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

Article source:  TYIN tegnestue Architects

The new sanitary building houses the basic needs of the orphanage; the toilets, personal hygiene facilities and laundry. The internal structure was already built and became the framework for the project.

The most intimate functions are located within the two plastered concrete masses. The central zone contains concrete containers for bathing and opens out towards the vast teak plantation. The bathing area is only partly privatized, adapted to Karen culture. A tilted facade of bamboo covers the front of the building and creates a passageway, connecting the two functions together.

Article source: Möhn + Bouman Architects

The journey of a stable to a chapel; the story of this little building.

Embedded deep in a beautiful landscape, itself shaped during the last ice age, this chapel embodies a peaceful and inspiriational atmosphere. The harmonious, timeless furniture, crafted from pure oak, reflects the building’s woodland environment. Behind the altar a unique piece of art shimmers softly in the light.

Old Market Library in Bangkok, Thailand by TYIN tegnestue Architects

The Old Market Library is built in a 100-year-old market building. The section for the library measures 3×9 metres internally, with a back yard facing a small canal. The roof and the walls were in very poor condition, and consequently any new element had to be self-supporting.

The project is situated in a former rural town that grew over the last decades into a medium-sized regional city. As a result of this process large parts of the city are transforming gradually towards a more urban character. The client is an innovative project developer, keen to play an active role in this process. Recently they acquired a piece of land close to the city centre for future redevelopment.
