Due to the apartment’s close proximity to Tel-Aviv’s HaTzuk Beach with its view of the glistening ocean in the horizon, it was only natural that I design the space of this unique apartment located in a luxury apartment building, using the wide-ranging possibilities of a blue color palette.

This proposal regenerates a neglected site to provide 26 new homes for private rent, with affordable creative start-up space at ground floor. The ‘Build to Rent’ model enables the delivery of high-quality homes with a new focus on catering for long-term tenancies. In contrast to the insecurity of traditional private rental accommodation, this model has the potential to revolutionise property in the UK, creating truly desirable homes for rent.

Landmark with a view
Studioninedots completes residential complex on Zeeburger Island Amsterdam
On the northern tip of the rapidly developing Zeeburger Island in Amsterdam Studioninedots, commissioned by de Alliantie and Lingotto, designed two striking volumes. Due to their stepped profiles and changing facade rhythms they appear different depending on the viewing angle. All 142 residences plus the shared outdoor spaces on the deck are orientated towards the magnificent views.

Our clients wanted to build their dream house; a house that would be their definitive family home. It had to have an urban presence, while having an open yet secure exterior space with sufficient privacy from the street. With a no expense to be spared mandate, the architect was given a large wish-list that included a 6-car garage and a 25m long pool.

True-to-form, easy-living South African holiday home.
Perched on the banks of the Buffels River, close to its mouth in Pringle Bay – a small coastal town less than 100km from Cape Town, South Africa – this house has an easy living permanence that shakes off the salty winds and lets in the sun and the natural beauty of the surrounding indigenous vegetation and mountain valley.

The Bassins à flots are a 162 ha niche site, a high-quality port and manufacturing district for which Bordeaux City Council has development plans. Nicolas Michelin’s instructions are to create a link between the site and the horizon and to build on the metaphor of the factory, warehouses and the navy.
Our project is very industrial in that it is solid, compact and metal-clad. There is the occasional raised element, one 9-storey building jutting up like a periscope. That is what the project is all about: putting together a serene skyline and creating an urban form similar to a village at ground level, with footpaths to maintain a feeling of wilderness.

The well-preserved gardens of the 17th century Villa Favorita, lining the shores of Lake Lugano at the foot of Monte Bré, are of great historical significance. The 13 romanticist buildings situated in the gardens were erected between 1687 and 1932. Their historicizing style is characteristic of Ticino architecture and, in fact, generally of the villas on the lake shores of northern Italy. Originally, the Villa Favorita was a freestanding, single ensemble of buildings between Lugano and Castagnola. Today it is surrounded by modernist blocks of housing from the second half of the 20th century. This modern architecture, is also a typical Ticino style, that emerged in response to the appeal of the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland as a second home and a financial center.

The housing complex In der Wiesen Süd consists of five buildings arranged on the site in order to create a serene environment for the inhabitants. The area opens wide towards the north and closes more densely towards the south, where it allows visual perspectives on the street.
The group in the southern area is developed by ARTEC architects, while Dietrich | Untertrifaller designed the northern part with three tower-like building structures. In the green space to the north, these higher buildings form a central and quiet area for the residents. The two six-storey buildings take the shape of a flattened hexagon around a hollow core. The numerous balconies offer each apartment different views of the park and the city. The rooms on the ground floor and on the garden level are home to small shops, workshops and offices. An atrium is placed at the core of the building and brings natural light into the access zones. The roof accommodates some community facilities of the residential complex, as well as private gardens.

“It is easy to believe we are each waves and forget we are also the ocean.”
― author Jon J. Muth, on the subject of neighbours.
It takes a lot of effort be a good neighbour and it’s often a thankless task. Austin Maynard Architects are extremely proud to have successfully walked the tightrope with Greenacres, to deliver the maximum outcome for our clients without negatively impacting their neighbours.

Sunny Apartment is located in Taichung, one of the typical units of Taiwanese housing.
In original plan, light and ventilation of public space were blocked by rooms, only the south has an opening. It was far from the ideal home we expected.
