Article source: rzlbd [Reza Aliabadi] 

Instar House is a minimalist three-storey wood & steel structure, which is located on the southern edge of Allenby, a neighbourhood on the border between North York and Toronto. While carefully responds to the needs and lifestyle of the clients, the house has moulted from the small foot-print of the two-and-a-half storey structure that had occupied the site since early 1950s and was infamously nicknamed as half-house.

Casa Los Diamantes in Guatemala City by Lavagnino Arquitectos

Friday, September 9th, 2016

Article source: Lavagnino Arquitectos

The design process for Casa Los Diamantes can be interpreted as a response to its context, the site proposed a certain orientation and form in order to gain more space and enjoy the forest view. It was our interest to combine the aesthetic lines and details of the colonial style with a contemporary space distribution. The house is organized from circular and double height foyer, communicating both stories and providing natural lighting and ventilation. To emphasize this space as the buildings core, the floor was accentuated with a floral pattern and integrated to the interior garden that provides light to the second story. We used white in all the surfaces to maintain the purity of the shapes, emphasizing details with granite and wood (walnut). As a result, the house responds to its formal predisposition without compromising the interior space and creating a dialogue between the architecture and its surroundings.
