House Sar in Johannesburg, South Africa by Nico van der Meulen Architects

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

Article source: Nico van der Meulen Architects

Located within the leafy suburb of Atholl, Johannesburg, stands the latest contemporary stunner from Nico van der Meulen Architects.

Designed by the highly acclaimed Werner van der Meulen, House Sar encapsulates luxury, comfort and functionality in a minimalist architectural setting.

The clients approached Nico van der Meulen Architects with a modest single storey pitched roof house. Limited views and access to the garden resulted in the rooms being dark, and thus the clients main request was to transform this house into a light-filled open plan contemporary home.  Ensuring that every room was naturally lit became the challenge for Werner van der Meulen, but one he proved could be done.

560 Vinson in Fayetteville, Arkansas by Modus Studio

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

Article source: Modus Studio

Empowered by their love of place and a history of previous renovations, the owners of this Mt. Sequoyah property sought a complete transformation for their modest ranch-style home. They came to us for a creative and modern approach to design that would provide natural light and views throughout the project. With deep ties to the surrounding neighborhood, there was also a desire to tastefully censor the adjacent homes without completely severing their connection to this charming community.

HOME STUDIO FOR AN ARTIST in Abruzzo, Italy by Studio zero85

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

Article source:  Studio zero85

The building, situated on the top of a hill, responds to a dual function: artist’s studio and home for the family. Observing the territory, with the presence of the houses of clay and their chromatic relationship with its surroundings, suggest the idea of using the slab in brick. The Tavelle (hollow tiles), once divided, were applied both on the facades that on the cover as a coating choosing the inner part of them, resulting in a unique solution of the use of this material. The formal purity takes the shape of barns and houses land extensively in the area. The interior space consists of a living unit on two levels of wood (including the kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms and the library), which divides in two the total volume (study and living). The openings guarantee (the client’s request) a horizontal light in the studio and at the same time frame of the views of particular landscape suggestion.

Woodhouse Rosendal in Uppsala, Sweden by Kjellander + Sjöberg

Saturday, February 21st, 2015

Article source: Kjellander + Sjöberg

The able, variable timber-block
Kjellander + Sjöberg’s proposal Rosendal is full of character and unlike anything else.
K + S has focused on surfaces, commercial units, the courtyard and the urban spaces that are used in quotidian yet innovative ways for multi-family housing in the city. The aim is to offer a block with a high sense of community – a welcoming context facilitating for good \”neighbourliness\”- from day one. K + S believes that the demand for unconventional forms of accommodation is great, where one has access to additional activities, contexts and functions beyond the own dwelling. Such as a joinery and workshop in the courtyard, a greenhouse on the roof, a space where you can repair your bike or paint your kitchen table. A space to have a flea market, host a crayfish-party or rabbit jumping contest; all in a green, recreational and generous setting, framed by apple trees and berry bushes.
