House Sar in Johannesburg, South Africa by Nico van der Meulen Architects

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

Article source: Nico van der Meulen Architects

Located within the leafy suburb of Atholl, Johannesburg, stands the latest contemporary stunner from Nico van der Meulen Architects.

Designed by the highly acclaimed Werner van der Meulen, House Sar encapsulates luxury, comfort and functionality in a minimalist architectural setting.

The clients approached Nico van der Meulen Architects with a modest single storey pitched roof house. Limited views and access to the garden resulted in the rooms being dark, and thus the clients main request was to transform this house into a light-filled open plan contemporary home.  Ensuring that every room was naturally lit became the challenge for Werner van der Meulen, but one he proved could be done.

MPower Yoga Studio in Baltimore, Maryland by J. Neal Design

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

Article source: J. Neal Design

A complete renovation on the ground floor of Baltimore’s Natty Boh Tower located in Canton, Baltimore, Mpower Yoga has been a game changing challenge and real privilege to work through. A close working relationship with the client, and a local architectural visualization firm lent towards a fast track design-build process yielding a high level of quality, customization, and coordination of comprehensive mechanical systems to best meet the needs of a hot yoga studio. The end product included two hot studio classrooms, fully equipped locker rooms, lounge and retail space, as well as back of house administrative functionality and storage. Despite the challenges of working within the constraints of an existing, and smaller than hoped for space, we were able to wrap the project up from schematic design to complete construction within a year’s time.

Article source:  Estudi E. Torres Pujol

ENVIRONMENT AND SHAPE
The building is located in an intermediate location between and industrial and a residential area, adjoining the old prison in Palma, nowadays abandoned. The plot is trapezoidal, and the building adapts to it using the maximum surface area allowed, as it was required by the client. Its volumetric architecture is a constant dialogue with the environment, blending the architecture of ‘International Style’ and traditional rural buildings in Mallorca.

Article source: Modus Studio

Empowered by their love of place and a history of previous renovations, the owners of this Mt. Sequoyah property sought a complete transformation for their modest ranch-style home. They came to us for a creative and modern approach to design that would provide natural light and views throughout the project. With deep ties to the surrounding neighborhood, there was also a desire to tastefully censor the adjacent homes without completely severing their connection to this charming community.

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

Article source:  Studio zero85

The building, situated on the top of a hill, responds to a dual function: artist’s studio and home for the family. Observing the territory, with the presence of the houses of clay and their chromatic relationship with its surroundings, suggest the idea of using the slab in brick. The Tavelle (hollow tiles), once divided, were applied both on the facades that on the cover as a coating choosing the inner part of them, resulting in a unique solution of the use of this material. The formal purity takes the shape of barns and houses land extensively in the area. The interior space consists of a living unit on two levels of wood (including the kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms and the library), which divides in two the total volume (study and living). The openings guarantee (the client’s request) a horizontal light in the studio and at the same time frame of the views of particular landscape suggestion.
