Apartment For A Guy and Even Two of Them in Poznań, Poland by Grupa Metaforma

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

Article source: Grupa Metaforma

In this world everything is clear – a simple form, minimalistic colors selection, natural materials. This concept of design has been dictated by the male point of view from the very beginning.

The apartment was purchased in the fall and when the architects entered it, they noticed an exceptional view of the old trees in the neighborhood. Yellow, red and brown colors were the perfect background.

Article source: Antonin Ziegler Architecte

In the Regional Natural Park of Boucles de la Seine, a barn in ruins was reconverted into a place of residence. Abandoned at the edge of the river, it used to hold the fodder for the haulage horses. Its thin weatherboarding had been worn away over time – only the timber framework remained.

San Carlos Midcentury Modern Remodel in California by Klopf Architecture

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

Article source: Klopf Architecture

The previous owner of this 1960s modern home covered over the walls of glass with plywood and installed a massive awning at the rear of the house, blocking out most light and connection with the outdoors. The original interior had a maze-like layout starting with a small entry area and moving into too many hallways. In short, the house felt dark and closed-in. Nevertheless the new owners saw the potential in the home, purchased it, and hired Klopf Architecture to help them realize the potential. Today it is an open, light and bright, indoor-outdoor, clean and simple, modernist home for two professionals and their young son.

Urla Atatürk Primary School in İzmir, Turkey by Mert Uslu Architecture

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

Article source: Mert Uslu Architecture

The structure, which maintains its continuity in the linear architecture, is aimed to create a space open to the active use of students and teachers by means of the large courtyard formed in the south by leaning to the northern edge of the land. The climatic characteristics of Urla have been taken into consideration and applications for planting have been foreseen in the sections facing the south pavement. However, such a study of the south pavement by the practitioner has not yet been carried out. It was aimed to break the monotonous inside and outside on the whole of the design by creating the level differences between the buildings and thus a dynamic composition was captured in the building which is a school. The structure in the physical environment in which it stands out in pure geometrical form is exhibiting a naive temperament in Urla’s traditional heritage.

Office space in Poznan, Poland by Metaforma

Sunday, May 21st, 2017

Article source: Metaforma 

Office spaces are often associated with unfriendliness and anonymity.  Architects from the Metaforma Group have faced the challenge of designing a space that will not only foster concentration while working, but will also allow you to fully rest during breaks. Acoustics and individually adjusted solutions in surface zoning have become the guiding ideas of the concept.
