House Y1 in Massif Central, France by Werner Sobek Group

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

Article source: Werner Sobek Group

The fully detached, 750 m² single-family home is located not far from the town of Yssingeaux in the Massif Central region of France. The ground floor of the house nestles against the slope. Although it has very few openings to the outside world, the interior rooms on this level are filled with natural light via the patio – a generously dimensioned glass-enclosed inner courtyard. The swimming pool, various guest rooms, the study and the owner‘s archive are situated on the ground floor, while the living quarters, dining area and bedrooms are all accommodated on the transparent top floor of the house. From the design of the patio to the diverse coalescing views and accessibility options, Y1 bonds with the landscape in every way.

“Grand Lognes” training site in France by Architecture Patrick Mauger

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

Article source: Architecture Patrick Mauger

The restructuring and extension to the Lognes site for the Ministry of the Interior aims to make it the main Grand Paris training center.

A “blue” gallery has been created that acts as the project’s backbone and provides the distribution needed for the restructured buildings and extensions. It permits a separation between visitor, trainee and personnel movements and ensures the readability of the centre, with administrative premises to the south and training premises to the north.

ETIE in Flanders, Belgium by Edouard Brunet and François Martens

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

Article source: Edouard Brunet and François Martens

Attracted by the large garden and the tranquil environment of this house located a few kilometres away from Brussels, the new owners wished to carry out works to make it brighter and to open it up on the outside.

As they were ambivalent about the aesthetics of the existing house, part of the project was also to redesign the architectural expression, outside as well as inside, while keeping the original spirit. One of the childhood friends of the new owner put him in contact with architect François Martens who asked his colleague Edouard Brunet to team up with him.

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Article source: Paolo Cesaretti Architetto

Like being in a life-size anagram. Many products with many different uses and little available space lead to a solution involving an abstract installation echoing different domestic and commercial spaces. Big lighting letters framed by a filtering black fabric mark the division between the spaces.

Casa 4.16.3 in Erechim, Brazil by Luciano Lerner Basso, architect

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Article source: Luciano Lerner Basso, architect

House 4.16.3 is located in the city of Erechim, in the countryside of Rio Grande do Sul, brazilian state, around 400 km from the state capital, Porto Alegre. The region has a subtropical climate, with warm, humid summers and chilly, rainy winters, which poses yet another challenge to the architect, in terms of habitability. Built on a terrain with a slope of twenty meters and several native plant species, the project sought to minimally alter the topography, proposing a building that lies on one of its highest parts and, from there on, develops sometimes accommodating itself on the natural profile and sometimes hovering over it.

Blake Residence in Melbourne, Australia by FINNEY CONSTRUCTIONS

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Article source: FINNEY CONSTRUCTIONS

This original 1970’s home was transformed into a striking modernist home totally unexpected in the more conservative Caulfield area.

A combination of Dado Render and Woodform Timber Batons on a curved wall creates the first impressions of this property, a far cry from the original façade that was dominated by a tin shed and a driveway.

A pivot door opens to the welcome area with curved walls that guide you to an impressive corridor with high ceilings and a gigantic view of the sky. All the doors off the corridor sit flushed against the wall, hung with pivot hinges and negative detailing surrounds. The bespoke timber circular door handles has an irresistible tactile quality that adds warmth to the space.
