The purpose of our project, in an urban redevelopment area, is to transform the building’s image.The refurbishment and extension form a harmonious mineral body. The extension is in light grey concrete, and the original building, with external insulation, is faced with cement in the same shade. This minerality is continued through to the hall floor, in Lucerne quartzite laid as opus incertum.

Isle of Wight Home Receives Modern Renovation in England by Kebony

Sunday, January 31st, 2016

Article source: Kebony

A stunning family home was recently completed on the south coast of the Isle of Wight as part of UK Channel 4’s program ‘Grand Designs’, designed by architect Lincoln Miles. After a near-death experience, Bram and Lisa Vis decided to take life by the horns and build a unique large family home for themselves, family and friends. With floor to ceiling windows looking out to sea and features including a private room, a games room and roof terrace with a swimming pool, the family home is the epitome of the best-of-the-best. Having been inspired by nature, international modernism and the open plan simplicity of the Farnsworth House by Mies van der Rohe, the new build is clad with Kebony wood which brings to the Grand Design the camouflage, beauty and quality which was so desired. Having started the project in March 2013, the new family home is now complete.

K8 in Kyoto, Japan by Florian Busch Architects

Sunday, January 31st, 2016

Article source: Florian Busch Architects

Until some time ago, there were, we are told, 12 bars spread over three 2-storey houses on this 50 m2 plot on Kiyamachidori, adjacent to one of Kyoto’s most intricate network of night alleys, Pontocho, where a vibrant mixture of bars, brothels, inns, dwellings, shops have for centuries created an urban atmosphere of essential Kyoto nightlife. With an unobtrusive high-end restaurant next to a (visually less subtle) cheap yakitori, with a hidden gem of a ryokan at the end of the narrowest of side-alleys across an enigmatic place commanding courage to enter, any walk here leads to eventual surprises.
