New Canaan Residence in Connecticut by Specht Harpman Architects

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

Article source: Specht Harpman Architects

The New Canaan Residence is nestled into a lush hilltop site in this forested part of Connecticut. The house was designed to engage the landscape and immerse the occupants in the full range of environments that the site offers. What the completed house doesn’t show is its modest beginnings: this is a renovation of a 1950’s house which had a series of unsympathetic additions from the 60’s and 70’s, and whose owners originally wanted only a kitchen upgrade.

Résidence Nguyen in Montreal, Canada by Atelier Moderno

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

Article source: Atelier Moderno

Under the guidance of director and president Jean-Guy Chabauty (APDIQ, ADIQ), Atelier Moderno is a full-service design firm, delivering a finished product that incarnates a synthesis of architecture, interior design, and industrial design. The mandate of this project was simple and honest – to create a residence for a young couple who were ready to grow their family. The response led to the development of a reticent and spacious environment, refined at every scale of planning, architecture, and detail. A topography of volumes and materials affirms itself throughout, changing its presence and effect as one circulates within the home.

Godinho’s House in Porto, Portugal by Ressano Garcia Arquitectos

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

Article source: Ressano Garcia Arquitectos

The house is located in a long and narrow plot. There was an existing house which was six meters large and twenty long, the new building had to use the same footprint and expanded to three floors. The south elevation faces the street and at the back of the house, the garden. The living and dining rooms overlook the garden through a large window, so the house can be flooded with natural light all day long. Both social areas bring the garden inside, an intimate atmosphere surrounded by stone walls and boulders, previously located underground.

House N in Noordwijk, Netherlands by Maxwan Architects + Urbanists

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

Article source: Maxwan Architects + Urbanists

Built in 1938, this Noordwijk seaside villa was originally the holiday home of a concrete factory owner. Battered and blustered by the salty sea weather over the decades, the house was in need of renovation. Besides roof replacement and basement repairs, the bedrooms, bathrooms and windows were outdated and some spaces had grown too small for the clients’ requirements. Maxwan’s additions bring new distinctive features to the house, while respecting its original character.

The Upper Room in Washington, DC by Studio Twenty Seven Architecture

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

Article source: Studio Twenty Seven Architecture

Located in the upper room of an ambiguous row house along a typical street within the anonymous grid of a Washington DC neighborhood, the aspiration is a micro-expression of modern space and life as spectacle. The program takes a 650 square foot floor space and designs a master bedroom suite including bed area, closet, reading nook, and bathroom. To do this, all interior walls were removed to free this turn-of-the-century home’s compartmentalized space.

House Sedibe in Bryanston, Johannesburg by Nico Van Der Meulen Architects

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Article source: Nico Van Der Meulen Architects

Situated within the heart of Bryanston in Johannesburg South Africa, this stand gracefully borders the Riverclub golf course. Positioned on top of a sloping site, it proudly elevates above its surroundings. Originally a single storey traditional house, this brief involved adding a second storey and increasing the areas to more than double its existing size. The style of the house was modernized, prioritizing the views, while ensuring natural northern light penetrates every room.
