House with Villa Silhouette in Lyttleton, New Zealand by Irving Smith Architects

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

House with Villa Silhouette

A house after the Christchurch quakes. One creative home comes down, another goes up, the new silhouetting the old, reminding, resettling, providing lineage.

Where the former villa sat square and inward, the new layers out across the southern view, shaping to the silhouette for light, and framing a greater appreciation of the everyday.

Carlisle Street Extension in Adelaide, Australia by SANS-ARC Studio

Sunday, December 25th, 2016

Article source: SANS-ARC

The Carlisle Street extension is a foray into a new-Australian vernacular. Familiar materials and form are used with a higher-consideration to context and passive design, exploring a vernacular for the modern-day. The extension is restrained and simple; a volume of space that is light-filled and expansive yet private.

“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.

Kensington Palace in Victoria, Australia by Nic Owen Architects

Wednesday, November 9th, 2016

Article source: Nic Owen Architects

A renovation and extension to the rear of a Victorian cottage in Kensington, Victoria Australia.

■ The owner, a single professional loved her charming 2 bedroom cottage but found the spaces dark, tired and basically in need of repair.

■ A neighbouring 2 storey extension compromised her privacy to the rear living spaces and the backyard, effectively reducing the usability of the property.

■ A small 1970’s sun-room extension was removed and replaced with a black steel and glass small extension. Large picture frame windows supply light and outlook to the existing structure.

House expansion in Zugló, Hungary by batlab architects

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016

Article source: batlab architects

We first met our customers (Anikó and Bálint) in the summer of 2013 who wanted to expand their home due to their growing family. Our task was to build a whole new storey  and a ground floor terrace after removing the hip roof. The family has outlined their requirements for the rooms, however we were given a free hand in the design and appearance.

There was enough time for planning, the customers spent a lot of time mulling over their new home, and we have also redesigned the house multiple times. While one week we thought that something is a good solution, the other week we thought the opposite.
