Article source: Strand Design 

Envisioned as a modern ranch, the Theodore Wirth home rests comfortably on its hillside location. Immediately adjacent to the property, a densely wooded park creates a retreat-like feel during the summer months, while revealing the Minneapolis downtown skyline and its close proximity to the city throughout the winter season.

Yesterday’s House in Valencia, Spain by Raul Garcia Studio

Sunday, February 18th, 2018

Article source: Raul Garcia Studio

Architecture arises from the need to give shelter to human beings from climatology. Aesthetics is then added to this practical component. Therefore, generating a ‘shelter’ that protects us from the outside while allowing us to be in perfect contact with the same on both sides is a really attractive idea. From this premise arises the refurbishment of this house, open to the outside through a backyard. In addition, as always, natural light penetrates the interior through skylights and interior partitions crowned with glass that provide zenithal light to the whole space. The program is divided into two heights, the lower one with the day program and the upper one that collects the bedrooms and other nocturnal uses. The backyard can be read as much as a continuation on the exterior of the home, as an extension of the garden that culminates in a barbecue and living room. And it is precisely this duality that allows the boundaries between architectural spaces to blur.

Brucato House in Los Angeles, California by Martin Fenlon Architecture

Friday, February 16th, 2018

Article source: Martin Fenlon Architecture 

The Brucato house is a rare example of new construction within a Historic Preservation Zone (HPOZ) in the city of Los Angeles. Located in the Highland Park-Garvanza district, which is the largest HPOZ in Los Angeles, the project consists of a new house that replaced the client’s small, aging bungalow. Since the original house was determined to be historically insignificant, its replacement would have to be compatible with the historic context and subject to the HPOZ board’s approval. And with a limited budget, it was critical to reuse certain elements of the structure, such as the existing foundation and parts of the existing framing.

FGV house in Catania, Italy by Tuttiarchitetti

Friday, February 16th, 2018

Article source: Tuttiarchitetti 

From 1 room of 48 sqm to 4 rooms of 16 sqm: increase of surfaces, multiplication of space. Two overturned and turned 90 ° turnstiles – in birch plywood panels – operate this magic, also providing the “disappearance” of the metal loft, heavy burden of the previous real estate RE-structuring, and returning “air” to the compartment. The space is so circular: from the living room, to the kitchen, to the study, to the upper bedroom: that from the living room, on the study, connected to the kitchen by a yellow monochrome staircase “dug out” in the birch portals; as well as the front desk counter.

Casa Sophie Apartment Refurbishment in Gràcia, Barcelona”

The project consists of the complete refurbishment of a 160m2 apartment, in one of the most important axis of the city. The geometry of its original plan layout corresponds to the building typology with load-bearing walls parallel to the facade and the rooms positioned to each side of a long corridor. The owners were attracted by the traditional typology of the flat and its exceptional illumination by the three patios. It had not undergone any fundamental change during its 100-year life.

Art and Light Apartment in New York by Andrew Mikhael Architect

Friday, February 16th, 2018

Article source: Andrew Mikhael Architect 

Imagined as a gallery for the client’s artwork and lifestyle – colorful and social.

The apartment, in a building that was originally a factory, looked like a regular old rental when we started: home depot finishes, awkward walls, a tiny master bath and a powder room. My clients brightened it up with their colorful art collection, and I wanted to design a home for them that would inspire and freshen their palate and complement the artwork for their frequent home parties.

Camberwell House in Australia by AM Architecture

Sunday, February 11th, 2018

Article source: AM Architecture

The site is located in Camberwell, Victoria on a unique L shape block, overlooking a leafy park. The existing architecture is rendered precast at first floor, sitting on external clinker brick planes at its base.  Its living areas were originally situated at first floor.

The brief was mostly pragmatic. More space for a large family, better zoning, and importantly to create a better connection to the outdoors but not lose the stunning views of the neighbouring parkland.

Grid Apartment in Rome, Italy by Brain Factory – Architecture & Design

Sunday, February 11th, 2018

Article source: Brain Factory – Architecture & Design 

The renovation of this bright apartment located in the Prati district of Rome represents a perfect blend between the customer needs and the design intentions: in fact, even though it is 80 square meters, it was designed by favoring a displacement of the spaces in favor of a large openspace, environment most lived by homeowners, and reducing to the maximum, but always in line with urban parameters, the sleeping area and the bathrooms. Contextual to a wide architectural requirement, there was a desire to separate the kitchen environment from the living room through a glazed system divided by a regular square mesh grille and with a very industrial aspect: it was made into galvanized iron profiles with micaceous finishing and artisanally assembled on site and completed with stratified glazing. The mood of the apartment prefers the total white combined with the warm tones of the oak parquet floor. On the theme of the grid also plays the espalier of the bedroom: in drawing the wall there are dense parallel wooden profiles that have also the function as shelves that can be placed at various heights. To exalt the pure formal minimalism, there are wall-wire wardrobes and a very linear and rigorous technical lighting.
