Morumbi Residence in São Paulo, Brazil by Monica Drucker

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

Article source: Monica Drucker 

When she saw the 2,500 m² lot at the top of the Morumbi hills, in São Paulo, the architect Monica Drucker knew that she had found the ideal spot for her client’s residence. The area harmonized the view to the urban skyline with the tranquility of a tree-lined street, in addition to excellent privacy conditions assured by the 1.5 m unevenness relative to the street. In the project, it is possible to identify elements of the Paulista modernism repertoire, such as the horizontal windows, the overhangs, the rigid lines in angles and whiteness. The construction preserved the existing trees and bamboos defining the entrance, enhancing the volume, the 3.60 m overhangs and the transparent frames.

Izakaya Kinoya in Montréal, Canada by Jean de Lessard

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

Article source: Jean de Lessard

For its latest Kinoya, interior designer Jean de Lessard has tapped into the sources to emulate in his design the primary spirit, function and aesthetics of the izakaya[1], as the latter was originally an informal place where people drank beer and sake. The transformation is particularly unusual that it explores through extreme design  intimacy in relationships between people, making of Kinoya a true representation of the unique approach the designer has developed about the different ways of occupying a space.

Re-Use in Netherlands by Global Architects

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

Article source: Global Architects

The renovation of the top floor of this Dutch mansion was a challenging one since the goal was to restore the traditional function of the rooms in an efficient and contemporary way without compromising the overall spatial experience. The main section of the apartment consists of a large space that contains the living room and the dining room. Two minimalist style built-in closets are centrally positioned alongside both walls and provide the total amount of requested storage space, including a hidden fridge, storage for the laundry machine and a bookcase. A clear division in functionality and the recovery of the proportions of the rooms have been accomplished without diminishing the sensation of the abundant presence of space. Daylight penetrates from both sides the complete depth of the interior and the ceiling hovers unhindered over the entire space.
