Bickford Park House in Toronto, Canada by Solares Architecture Inc.

Tuesday, May 10th, 2016

Article source: Solares Architecture Inc.

Our project, Bickford Park House, was completed only a few months ago. Our client had bought the house over 20 years ago, and over those years had over 50 residents as tenants and roommates. The house needed a ton of work – the building suffered from major structural damage to the load-bearing brickwork, sagging floors, and multiple units, which cut off the home and broke the space apart in cumbersome ways. However, our clients loved the look and feel of the Victorian semi-detached home – they were adamant on a rejuvenation of the existing building, not an entirely new home. The major renovation had to retain the same charm they had loved for years. So Solares Architecture, alongside General Contractor Jesse Hayes, got right to work.

Masonic House in Moscow, Russia by FABER GROUP

Friday, May 6th, 2016

Article source: FABER GROUP 

The premises of the four houses are located around a common stair-lift lobby – atrium. In the basement are areas of cinema and billiard room. The first floor comprises a group of ceremonial and technical kitchen, dining room and split-level living room-library. Main lift and staircase hall is raised on three floors and opens the space of the house throughout its extent. Having made the decision not to conceal the space of the staircase hall, but to strengthen the impression it makes, the volume of the hall was visually stretches by active verticals. The hall turned into a luxurious multilevel volume, with “heart of gold” in the form of a nine-metre cascading chandelier made by the author’s project. Hypertrophied height is emphasizes by rapid vertical impressionability of the walls, pointing upwards. The whole system of decoration starts from the entrance and develops in the remaining space of the house. Stucco, murals, designer fixtures and colours shape the environment of clear art deco motifs.

House in Nishinokyo, Japan by OHArchitecture

Friday, May 6th, 2016

Article source: OHArchitecture  

This is a remodelling project of a Kyomachi-ya, a traditional Kyoto house, constructed over 80 years ago.

At first, it was a Kyomachi-ya that has been painted multiple times due to refurbishments in the last 80 years. Firtstly, for returning it to the original form, the paints were scraped off. Then, to be able to provide the minimal needs for living in a house, a white box has been placed in the building. The coexistence of the newly placed white box and the historical elements of the Kyomachi-ya, as a background, emphasizes the contrast of the old and the new, and lets the memories of the building possessed with in the flow of time surrounds the space.

One House_House for Family of Four in Pangyo, Korea by Chang Kyu Lee (GEBDESIGN)

Friday, May 6th, 2016

Article source: Chang Kyu Lee

A house is a place of habitation—a dwelling and shelter. A house is also a home—a place of identity. Just as an individual’s identity is personal (private) and social (public), the home is also a shelter separated from the world (inward) and a place of center from which to explore the world (outward).

Renewed Classic Eichler in Sunnyvale, California by Klopf Architecture

Thursday, May 5th, 2016

Article source: Klopf Architecture

Klopf Architecture, Growsgreen Landscape Design, and Flegel’s Construction partnered to bring this mid-century atrium Eichler home up to 21st century standards. One owner’s mother grew up in an Eichler, which gave them a deeper appreciation for the style of the home (that same mother is also responsible for the Eichler quilt in the master bedroom photo). They loved Eichlers, so while they wanted the house to work better for their family and provide a little more elbow room, they also dreamed of living in a colorful warm mid-century modern home with natural wood like the original Eichlers. They entrusted Klopf Architecture to respectfully expand and update the home, while still keeping it “classic”. The Klopf team helped them open up the kitchen, dining, and living spaces into one flowing great room, expand the master suite, replace the kitchen and bathrooms, and provide additional features like an office and powder room, all while maintaining the mid-century modern style of this Silicon Valley home.
