Magnolia Remodel in Seattle, Washington by SHED Architecture & Design

Friday, July 17th, 2015

Article source: SHED Architecture & Design

The owners saw potential in this 1914 craftsman home when they bought it in 2013. The Seattle family had the intention of restoring the home’s original details while also making modern modifications to the traditional layout on the main floor. Influenced by years of living in Japan, the clients wanted a clean and simple aesthetic to suit their minimal lifestyle. The central challenge for SHED Architecture & Design was to rework the floor plan to improve the primary flow of the space. The firm made modifications to the main floor to create a feeling of continuity from the entryway to the backyard while remaining sympathetic to the structure’s native form. The Seattlebased architecture firm manipulated and built upon existing geometry to subtly introduce a new kitchen, bath, laundry and outdoor space that compliment the home’s original bay windows, angled walls and oak floors.

WIESE in Stockerau, Lower Austria by synn architekten ZT-OG

Friday, July 17th, 2015

Article source: synn architekten ZT-OG

Balancing the efficient use of land with private parking needs requires creativeness and a new way of thinking. The ideal solution was found by providing capacity under the houses, claiming more space for outdoor activities and gardens while creating a pleasant living environment. The existing topography provided the ideal location for five refined spilt-level townhouses in a beautifully situated prominent area in Stockerau. An inclining interior wall acts as a divide between each dwelling; and the feature is mirrored once more in the street level view. The parking area leads comfortably down to the kitchen/dining area and smoothly flows up towards the bedroom area. Situated in the southern corner, two semi-detached properties are formed from a crystal-shaped exterior. Each property comes complete with private gardens.

KHVatec Headquarter in Seoul, Korea by THE_SYSTEM LAB

Friday, July 17th, 2015

Article source: THE_SYSTEM LAB

In 2010, when the architects were invited to the concept design phase, it was widespread that the area including the site would transform into a commercial zone (change in Floor-Area Ratio to occur: 250% ? 400%) within next 10 years. The client required three important factors into the design. First, the design should not stand out alone from the neighboring buildings, but still acquire the company¡¯s brand image. Second, to consider that it is IT related company therefore requires high-security, which limits openings. Third, to include a small theater and a gallery for the employees and the public in respect to cultural context that will continue from Seoul Art Center (note that Seoul Art Center is in close proximity of KHvatec Headquarters).
