Sloan Berkes House in Naramata, British Columbia by Allen+Maurer Architects Ltd.

Friday, April 15th, 2016

Article source: Allen+Maurer Architects Ltd.

Pebbles lives among the pebbles, as underground garage tunnelled into the steep hillside from the access street at the north-east. It was too steep to build a road to the top of the ridge from where one looks up and down and across the Okanagan Valley and -Lake, so this was the only option. Pebbles is also home to a wine room, kept at the temperature of the earth surrounding it, a foyer, and the geothermal heat pump.

Hookah Bar Nargile in Sofia, Bulgaria by KMAN Studio

Friday, April 15th, 2016

Article source: KMAN Studio

When our client contacted us to design the interior of a traditional oriental hookah bar in Sofia, we sought inspiration in the “One thousand and one nights” stories, and the intricate geometric patterns adorning classical Islamic architecture. Housed in a 200sqm rectangular area which opens to a garden in the south, we created a space that celebrates the centuries-long tradition of hookah smoking with a bold and modern twist.

House with ZERO stairs in Wroclaw, Poland by STOPROCENT Architekci

Friday, April 15th, 2016

Article source: STOPROCENT Architekci

The clients, a middle-aged couple, approached us with one definite request – they wanted to build a house with no stairs, a house that would be equally practical and enjoyable when they get old. The site offered no obvious clues – a flat piece of land in a second line of buildings, in a suburban part of the city of Wrocław, among disappearing traces of a rural past, surrounded by a chaotic mix of houses of all styles, materials and conditions.
