The Hong Kong House by AR Design Studio

Sunday, July 29th, 2018

Article source: AR Design Studio

The Hong Kong House is a private extension and renovation project, completed in late 2017 by Winchester based architects AR Design Studio. A world away from the client’s former home in Hong Kong, the house provides an opportunity for the family to have a familiar inside-out space to live in and relax.

Set beside an ancient Roman Road, the existing Grade II listed Victorian property is a beautiful townhouse of proud red brick. The clients bought the house for its scale and charm and approached AR Design Studio to help bring it up to modern standards and provide a much needed connection to their stunning walled garden.

Villa Kampani in Mykonos, Greece by OMNIVIEW

Sunday, July 29th, 2018

Article source: OMNIVIEW

Villa Kampani is one of the most historic properties of downtown Mykonos. Built in the 1850s, it was the house of the Mayor of Mykonos, after whom Akti Kampani (also known as “Gialos”) was named.

Architecturally unique, and quite rare for Mykonos, the house is a cross breed between standard Cycladic architecture and neoclassical building typology, that one would find in the center of Athens.

Departamento Acueducto in Mexico City, Mexico by ARCO ARquitectura Contemporánea

Sunday, July 29th, 2018

Article source: ARCO ARquitectura Contemporánea

The remodeling project for Acueducto apartment was developed in a 190 sq m area for a 3 people family. Nothing was conserved from the original project in order to remodel completely all the areas to create a whole new home inside a 90s building.

ARCO Arquitectura Contemporánea´s team achieved warm environments in all the apartment areas, even like in the living room and master bedroom, where you may feel the sober and elegant touch. These sensations are encompassed thanks to the ideal combination of materials both in walls and floors as well as in the selection of the materials of the designed or specified furniture. The main chosen material is an oak plank for the floors and to cover the walls that is in harmony with a neutral color gray palette and the American walnut carpentry. In some spaces an accent of color and contrast is given by the color blue.

Cottage in The vineyard, Spain by Ramón Esteve Estudio

Sunday, July 29th, 2018

Article source: Ramón Esteve Estudio

Cottage in Fontanars is located in the municipality of Fontanars, on the outskirts of the village surrounded by large acreages. The project seeks the maximum environmental and landscape integration because of its border location between a zone of pine forests and the grapevine fields, being diluted practically in the vegetation. To this contributes the decision to develop the entire program in a single plant, in addition to the material chosen, which provides shade consistent with the place.

“This countryside retreat generated from the idea of a standard traditional rural house with its pitched roof, applying a new concept of space afterwards.”

Room Without Roof in Singapore by HYLA Architects

Friday, July 27th, 2018

Article source: HYLA Architects 

This 2 storey brick structure has the archetypal form of a gable roofed house with an unusual twist – part of this form is actually an external courtyard that contains the swimming pool. This “room without a roof”, becomes the central focus of the house and blurs the distinction between inside and outside. It also gives the house privacy by controlling the views both from and to the house. The house is cladded in a dark grey and textured face brick, which is modulated in a variety of ways – either with brick sized openings or protruding bricks. On the second level is a precast concrete screen which is both for visual as well as sun screening. The last element in the external palette is a timber grid screen which gives a warm contrast to the brick and concrete.

House A in Indonesia by Alexis Dornier

Friday, July 27th, 2018

Article source: Alexis Dornier 

The linear 4 story arrangement counteracts the steep slope of the site by becoming a bridge house.

The central theme of the ensemble is combining two architectural expression:

-The idea of a romantic ruin, strongly connected to the ground, and a light, fading, transparent structure holding a series of roofs-two images working with and against each other.

Cecilia Road in London, England by MW Architects

Article source: MW Architects

This is a very small but finely tuned garden extension. The client used the existing space as a home of office but wanted a little more space with a stronger connection to their beautiful garden. They also wanted to have a walk-in shower which felt like a shower in the garden.
