Butanta House in São Paulo, Brazil by LAB Arquitetos

Sunday, October 2nd, 2016

Article source: LAB Arquitetos

In sight of a comfortable house for the whole family, the owners decided to renovate an old house from the early 50s.
The architects from Lab Arquitetos developed the project in order to integrate the outdoor area to the inside of the house, making it possible the usage of pergolas, balconies and wide windows.

Searching for an aesthetical look that refers to the northern Argentina fields and grasslands, rustic materials such as wood were used, contrasting with the contemporary furniture and integrated rooms.

Zn House in Toronto, Canada by +tongtong Inc

Sunday, October 2nd, 2016

Article source: v2com

Multidisciplinary design studio +tongtong recently completed a renovation and addition to a traditional Victorian house in Toronto. The house was transformed into an open and bright modern home through a series of strategic moves and incisions.

The specifications were to build a modern family home that expands the area of livable space while remaining true to the vernacular of the neighborhood. This challenge was met with an emphasis on natural materials and light. Inspired by rural living and the original build date of the home, industrial materials accentuate re-imagined architectural qualities in an unmistakable contemporary space.

Mug Hakdong in Gyeongsangnam-do, South Korea by Hyunjoon Yoo Architects

Friday, September 30th, 2016

Article source: Hyunjoon Yoo Architects

Complex surrounding context + Mountain in the distance

The given site is located in front of the bus stop on the main street of the Mondol beach, in Geojae island. There is a stunning horizon of Mondol beach along the Geojae seashore, 100 meters ahead of the site. However, this stunning view can only be captured from the higher level above the ground, from the limited view frame created by the gaps in between the existing buildings. The site is basically surrounded by the randomly constructed accommodations. Yet, the picturesque view of Moja Mountain over those buildings is considered as our targeting landscape.

Haus Meister in Rümlang, Switzerland by HDPF – Hamburger Du Pfammatter Ferrandiz

Friday, September 30th, 2016

Article source: HDPF – Hamburger Du Pfammatter Ferrandiz

This single-family house is located on a former cooperative workers’ estate and replaces a building designed in 1948 in the spirit of the garden city. Its close proximity to the airport meant that the municipal building regulations largely ceased to have effect. The resulting restriction to a slightly larger replacement building and the distance guidelines created a lengthwise rectangular plan and volume.

Mr Lu Residence by Alfonsoideas Ltd

Friday, September 30th, 2016

Article source: Alfonsoideas Ltd

This is a 35 year old apartment that has total floor area of 86m2 including front and back balconies. It is a 3 bedroom unit and the ceiling height is only 2.4m which is not very high. . The space look rather small and tidy before the renovation , the idea was to open the public space and try to put all the storage in the decent space either against the wall or attach to the corner as if the space could look much cleaner. In order to make the space look bigger , the bedroom behind the living room was converted into a open study area which has very long study desk that can sit for 2 people at the same time. Using the brown tinted glass as the visual barrier to separate the study area and the living space, and yet it look much larger looking out from the study area.The TV wall cabinet extended twice longer so the living room can visually look bigger than before .

Andronikos Hotel in Santorini, Greece by KLab architecture

Friday, September 30th, 2016

Article source: KLab architecture

After a successful collaboration for Andronikos hotel in Mykonos, KLab architecture and Andronikos hotels joined forces again for a new hotel in Santorini. A large house from the 70’s, located in Imerovigli Santorini, of three floors was rethought as 6 suites hotel. Above the volcano caldera and the famous rock “skaros” KLab architecture changed throughout the existing building to accommodate the needs of the new hotel. 6 large suites and a sky bar on the terrace were conceived as a modern interpretation of the cave like vernacular houses of Santorini. New vaults and arches and curvaceous edges recreate the unique aura of traditional houses.
