Casa Kimball in Dominican Republic by Rangr Studio

Wednesday, September 21st, 2016

Article source: Rangr Studio

Casa Kimball is a private beach house and luxury rental villa located on the North coast of the Dominican Republic. Situated on a cliff with a panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean, each of eight full suites has a breathtaking view out to the ocean. The buildings are designed to protect from views of neighboring villas, heightening the experience of the vast horizon beyond. The interior spaces merge with the gardens, and are designed to allow ocean breezes under shade from the sun throughout the year. Light at sunset rakes through trees, casting dappled sunlight on the light stone floors in the evening. A long infinity edge pool creates a seamless edge of water in front of the ocean, hiding terraces and a hot-tub at cliff edge that allow visitors to experience the ocean’s roar as waves break on the rocks below.

The villa is about 20,000 square feet, and includes two indoor and two outdoor lounges, a dining room with a view centered on the pool out to the ocean, and an outdoor bar area.

Renovation Of 150 Housing Units – Le Foyer Bruxellois in Brussels, Belgium by Philippe SAMYN and PARTNERS

Sunday, September 18th, 2016

Article source: Philippe SAMYN and PARTNERS

The 6 buildings in the Minimes neighbourhood were designed in 1954 by architects and urban planners from the Alpha group. The architectural composition of these social housing units is elegant and the buildings were erected with great care.

Still, time has left its mark. The thermal insulation needs improving, and it is also important to equip all units with decent sanitary facilities.

Special care has been taken to respect the great simplicity and harmony of the existing buildings.
