Zn House in Toronto, Canada by +tongtong Inc

Sunday, October 2nd, 2016

Article source: v2com

Multidisciplinary design studio +tongtong recently completed a renovation and addition to a traditional Victorian house in Toronto. The house was transformed into an open and bright modern home through a series of strategic moves and incisions.

The specifications were to build a modern family home that expands the area of livable space while remaining true to the vernacular of the neighborhood. This challenge was met with an emphasis on natural materials and light. Inspired by rural living and the original build date of the home, industrial materials accentuate re-imagined architectural qualities in an unmistakable contemporary space.

Haus Meister in Rümlang, Switzerland by HDPF – Hamburger Du Pfammatter Ferrandiz

Friday, September 30th, 2016

Article source: HDPF – Hamburger Du Pfammatter Ferrandiz

This single-family house is located on a former cooperative workers’ estate and replaces a building designed in 1948 in the spirit of the garden city. Its close proximity to the airport meant that the municipal building regulations largely ceased to have effect. The resulting restriction to a slightly larger replacement building and the distance guidelines created a lengthwise rectangular plan and volume.

Article source: T3 Architecture

Complete refurbishment of this duplex in the center of Marseille by the french studio T3 Architecture. The existing flat suffered from a significant lack of light and its main rooms were constrained by the central staircase.

The architects completely released the heart of the apartment by removing the stairs and most of the partitions. The entrance of the flat now enjoys a generous double height volume that offers a visual communication between the different spaces of the two storeys.

CCF – Reforma Claudio Fuzaro in São Paulo, Brazil by GOAA

Thursday, September 29th, 2016

Article source: GOAA

The strategy to reorganize the program of this house, consisted in taking advantage of its unusual arrangement in order to create a new spatial sequence. The project focused on the transformation of the house facing the street and whose blind facade contained a graffiti made by a neighbor artist and valued by the client. The starting point was to remove all the existing informal constructions followed by the reorganization of the openings, doors and windows, seeking a more fluid integration between internal and external spaces. The adjustment of the courtyards levels created a more connected open space and made room to a rain water cistern, which required a reconfiguration of the residence´s water supply system. Two spatial operations complete the routing: the multiplication of the outdoor space by creating a rooftop terrace and connecting the kitchen to the outside area. The new program is contained within wooden volumes in order to make a clear distinction between the old and the new construction. These volumes are also visible from the street, announcing its internal reconfiguration and adjusting its scale to its surroundings morphology.
