The Old Hall in Suffolk, England by Nash Baker Architects

Sunday, February 14th, 2016

Article source: Nash Baker Architects

The Old Hall in Suffolk is a complex restoration project by Nash Baker Architects involving a 16th Century oak-framed hall house with many later alterations and additions. Originally constructed in the 16th Century for a local merchant, this historic hall house was converted into several cottages around 1800. Unsympathetic alterations and extension during the 1960’s and 1970’s have been reversed or remodeled to re-unite the building as a single house.

Hiža-a contemporary interpretation of a traditional zagorje cottage in Kumrovec, Croatia by PROARH

Wednesday, November 18th, 2015

Article source: PROARH

The pre-existing traditional Zagorje cottage is situated on the green slopes near Kumrovec  and was structurally and statically in poor condition. It was renovated taking into consideration the characteristics of local heritage and design. The pre-existing house form is kept, while the porch is substituted with a glass cube. To give the cottage southern exposure, the glass form is slided out of the main house volume, simultaneously forming an entrance area.  Interaction of interior and exterior spaces is enabled by opening of the glass walls. The cottage consists of three floors: the basement, ground floor and 1st floor, which is comprised of the essential living spaces- leisure/dining/cooking on groundfloor and sleeping areas on the 1st floor. Groundfloor spaces are then arranged following a traditional system of organisation that creates a common zone with the ‘hearth’ .

Writers’ Cottage 2 in Oslo, Norway by JVA

Sunday, September 13th, 2015

Article source: JVA

This small annex is located in the garden of two professionals in a residential area on the outskirts of the city.

The clients wanted a place that would give them space and quiet to focus on their writing and work. At the same time they wanted a view that could somehow remind them of their native West-Norwegian landscapes, this in spite of the site’s location only offering views towards a parking lot and a train station. Their intention was that the project would work as an alternative to a cottage in the countryside.

Chalet ‘Dag’ in Chamonix, France by Chevallier Architectes

Article source: v2com

This cottage was originally a summer residence, like many others in Chamonix, and was therefore not insulated for winter use. No upgrades had been done since its construction approximately 70 years ago.

Vega Cottage in Norway by Kolman Boye Architects

Friday, July 10th, 2015

Article source: Kolman Boye Architects

The house stands on the island of Vega in the Norwegian archipelago not far from the polar circle. The site is distinctive for its grand and harsh northern landscape with wide panoramas of the Norwegian Sea and the jagged mountains rising from it. Seemingly growing from the landscape, the house sits on a rock beneath a granite shoulder negotiating the uneven terrain. As not to disturb the dominant view towards the sea, access to the house is given through a narrow natural ravine densely grown with gnarled birch shrubs and laid out with sea-sand from the nearby shore. The surrounding landscape remains untouched and wild. The large windows of the house face three directions, each with its strong unique characteristic. They are simple and robust in detailing and the optically white glass conveys undisturbed frames of the ocean, the mountain range and the bedrock. Organised on two levels adapting to the terrain, the plan is compact, providing generous social spaces within a limited floor area. The upper level is comprised of smaller scale bedrooms and family rooms, whereas the lower level is a large gallery-like space structured around a stone hearth. Completed in linseed oil painted pine with untreated birch skirting, frames and reveals – the interior is kept subtle with a character of being hand-built – promoting tactile qualities and the attractive patina developed over time.

Piolet cottage in Chamonix, France by Chevallier Architectes

Saturday, June 13th, 2015

Article source: Chevallier Architectes

Context
The building was originally an old wooden shed in very poor condition – a strong candidate for demolition.
The challenge was to find ways to develop and optimize the spaces within a volume that could not be modified due to planning by-laws.
