Feldbalz House in Zürich, Switzerland by Gus Wustemann Architects

Monday, September 17th, 2012

Article source: Gus Wüstemann Architects

This project is not a house but a family sculpture looking for freedom and social interaction. The created sculpture contains family life, where everybody meets and circulates on the first floor, while providing a great view over the lake of Zurich.

This sculpture separates the parents’ area, which is on top of the shape and the children’s area, which lies underneath. The whole construction rests on the volume of the fireplace; an element of content and emotion.

And it was precisely in this spirit of recycling and reuse coupled with countless aesthetic possibilities that this project was prepared.

The Mill House in Skane, Sweden by Wingardh Arkitektkontor AB trough

Saturday, September 15th, 2012

Article source: Wingardh Arkitektkontor AB trough

Wingårdh converted a large old farm in the countryside in southern Sweden into a vacation house for a family from the nearby city of Malmö. He transformed the original farm buildings – cowshed, stables, hay loft and barn – into sleeping quarters, kitchen and a gym, among other rooms, and added a new freestanding wing to the late 19th -century house. This little annex is a refuge, a quiet place to escape to or a private domain for guests to inhabit. Throughout the project, the client demonstrated unwavering faith in the architect, giving him great latitude in designing the little fifty-square-meter cottage.
