House F in Trieste, Italy by BiasiBonominiVairo Architetti

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

Article source: BiasiBonominiVairo Architetti

The operation of transforming a villa on the coast of Trieste stands as a moment marking a break in the equilibrium between violently rugged landscape and its control through rationalization and terraced gardens, retaining walls and residential volumes. In this sense, the renovation of a split-level house dating back to early 70s, by the partial demolition of existing building structure and the reorganization of the distributive spaces, looks for a new dynamism and a new relationship with the landscape, natural and man-made.

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Article source: Julianking Architect

The project is the renovation of a pre-war townhouse on an historic block in Chelsea, NYC, focusing on the garden apartment. The garden duplex was originally dark and in disrepair: a cramped kitchen had inadequate windows facing the rear yard, the parlor level, with ornate molding, and etched glass, opened clumsily into a bedroom facing a rear yard.

A House in Pamplona, Spain by Vaillo & Irigaray + Beguiristain

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Article source: Vaillo & Irigaray + Beguiristain

The renovation of this home suggests a consideration on the consequences to be derived from the implementation of a new -almost palatial- scale.

A strategy has been planned: to shape a sole plan by means of large board pavement – 15m length x 30cm width.

This concept is emphasized by the employment of a theatrical iconography: curtains covering the whole space, disfiguring backgrounds, blurring space continuity and generating some thrilling chambers.

Abitare il sottotetto in Milan, Italy by Studio Arcadia Ego

Friday, June 29th, 2012

Article source: Studio Arcadia Ego

The design solution for the apartment started from the need to modify the original project that included the execution of a partition wall in front of the entrance; this wall delimited the area deputed to food preparation closed by sliding glass doors and furniture provided with angular. This solution, however, prevented a rational distribution of the residence, having an area of 30 square meters, could contain only a small table and a sofa. The project, planned to greatly reduce the wall of the kitchen until it becomes a shoulder retaining wall system of open living space which becomes a distinctive design element.

House D-Z in Mullem, Belgium by GRAUX & BAEYENS Architecten

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

Article source: GRAUX & BAEYENS Architecten


A narrow plot in combination with a very dens program (a home and a physiotherapist practice) resulted in a building that challenges the envelope of the planning regulations.


To escape the limitations of de non-building area’s on the sides of the house, the  traditional dwelling-program is switched: the day-light functions ( kitchen, dining room, living room en terraces) are located on top of the night functions (bedrooms and bathrooms).

S-Mahal in Gyeonggi-do, Korea by Moon Hoon (designed using AutoCAD and SketchUp)

Sunday, June 24th, 2012

Article source: Moon Hoon

When I was a high school student, I had a friend of slight build who always used to carry the Book of Changes with him and was interested in Korean traditional classical music. He was faithful in his religious life, at the same time full of curiosity about the secular world and always paced around restlessly. One day after 20 years, he called me out of the blue. He had in the meantime become a veterinarian and wished to move to India a few years later to lead his own life. After getting together with him for a chat over a drink a couple of times he asked me to design a house where he, his wife and her parents would live together. He wanted me to build an inner court and madang where he could raise animals, as well as a prayer room.
