Silhouette is a 52,000m2 complex that will consist of luxury apartments, a sports centre, flexible workspaces, an event space and a sky deck. The top floors accommodate apartments in a variety of configurations and sizes with the largest located on the corners providing panoramic views in every direction. Underground programs include a supermarket and both commercial and residential parking. A modular system allows for diversifying the building’s shape and interior typologies whilst at the same time, this provides both compact and spacious apartments. The volume of the building is sculpted and diversified to create distinctive entrances and a sloping roofscape that strengthens the views of the city. Sculptural cuts on the top and bottom of the facade are carved out according to the function that needs to take place, or certain quality that needs to be provided within the space inside.

In Linköping’s new district of Vallastaden, Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture has built a townhouse that achieves a passive house standard with four apartments. The townhouse consists of four volumes that differ in shape and facade patterns. The relationship is visible in the colours and expressions of the facade plates. In addition to each apartment there is a small courtyard with bicycle storage and a garden with patio and storage room for outdoor furniture. The storage buildings have green roofs and the façade is treated with an environmentally friendly wood protection and is grayed out over the years. The apartments have a flexible third floor with high ceilings that can be used as studio, playroom or additional bedroom. Each apartment has its own theme that is seen in the kitchen and bathroom furnishings.

This project refers to the redesigning of a T1 apartment (46 m2), located in attic flat of a 70’s building, situated in a privileged area of Sever do Vouga.
The social room of the building was firstly East facing while the cosy area was West facing. The main goal of the reconstruction was to change both social and cosy areas to the opposite side, allowing a better sun exposure which also made it possible to use the contiguous balcony.
It was also created a box inside the apartment, cleary distiguished with the usage of another colour, where other facilities, such as toilet, kitchen and machines, were placed.

Golestan Residential Building is located in a wide dead end, with a maximum height of 20 meters close to a military area. The quiet atmosphere of the alley, which is due to its proper width and impassability, and also the green mass of the tree in the courtyard, led us to pay special attention to the main pavement of the project, and use this potential for Improve the quality of indoor spaces and make communication with the yard and the city. In this regard, the role of the terraces as the spaces of this communication becomes more remarkable.

The stand is 1511 sq.m. and the house faces 15° east of north.
Upon approaching the home the first view is of the cantilevered porte cochere screen of suspended steel tubes with double sliding garage doors clad in dark limestone to blend with the wall. A steel sculpture by Regardt van der Meulen twirls on a podium next to the front door built of privacy glass.

Like many German cities, Bremen is confronted with an increasing housing shortage and a growing demand for affordable housing.
In response to this, the largest Bremen Housing Association, GEWOBA, has prudently taken on a supplementary extension to their existing 45,000 plus housing stock. In 2011, within the framework of the competition “ungewöhnlich Wohnen” (unusual living), five exemplary lots from a postwar housing area were chosen to investigate the adaptability of the area. The proposals considered contemporary demands for affordable and flexible housing that could offer manifold inhabitant configurations. These housing areas in the Gartendstadt Süd of Neustadt Bremen, offer generous green open areas formed by homogenous four-storey housing blocks.
