The double volume entrance hall completely surrounded by glass, draws you in as it’s bordered by two double garages on either side. The symmetry of the timber wrapped garages highlights the transparency of the house as views of the garden captivate you even before you have entered. Enveloped in natural wood, the garage doors disappear into a timber wall paying tribute to Werner’s ability to transform the everyday ordinary into an extra ordinary design feature.

Extends the living space, the two-storey in direct juxtaposition cultivation of colored Torfbrandziegeln. Only after his glazed incisions (engl. Notches) choreographed stone cube. Without visible roof without any roof detail and without any scheduled accessories. The basis for this House Extension, forms a hipped roof bungalow 90s. He learns an independent, timely and extremely reduced, developed entirely from sustainable materiality sequel. This creates an additional adventure world: the voltage unusual set openings, more vistas, more-floor rooms as opposed to the indecision of the past.

The clients, a retired couple well into their “golden years,” wanted a modest, private, and very modern house that would embrace their deep commitment to environmental stewardship and personal health. The solution is a Net Zero Passive courtyard house that was the star of a recent Green Homes Tour throughout the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel “Triangle” region in central North Carolina.

The house is for a married couple in their forties, located in the city of Narashino. It is situated on the edge of a residential neighborhood and a commercial district that stretches form the station, with large-scale stores nearby. The house faces an eight meter wide street classified as an urban roadway, with busy traffic due to its proximity to the train station. The client wished for a concrete house, where all spaces are stringed together in sequence, while also maintaining the privacy and freedom of a spacious living space.

Design a family house without knowing to whom it´s meant to be, it’s like drawing a portrait without having a model… in the end we might design for ourselves. Having in mind the portuguese real estate market current situation, aiming for the design of signature houses is unrealistic for most offices, so we are left to intervene in the neo-liberal real estate market in the best way we can, according with the game rules.

A Family house with two studios. Our aim was to break up the relatively large volume as far as possible within the limitations and to create different rooms, terraces, covered outdoor spaces and courtyards. The two units are separate and yet a whole. The fantastic views along the North coast of Madeira are enjoyed fully. A large glass area in the South allows to take advantage of the winter sun in the otherwise north oriented house.

Klopf Architecture, Outer Space Landscape Architects, and Flegels Construction updated a classical 1950s original mid-century modern house designed by the late Frank Lloyd Wright apprentice Ellis Jacobs. Klopf Architecture pushed the original design intent to make the house more open and uniform from space to space, while improving energy efficiency, capitalizing more on the already incredible views, improving the flow of spaces, providing an outdoor living area, and ratcheting up the quality level of the home in general.

The fast paced project was developed in four months and built in 8 months.
Iansa is the principal producer, distributor and seller of sugar in Chile. The company was looking to house the production of their new sweetener Cero K. A 30 x 50 mts two-story 8.5mt high warehouse was the starting point to house the various programmatic requirements. The actual productive process in developing the sweetener became the core of the project resulting in a 4- story 14mt high central structure cladded in Transparent Alveolar Sunlite Polycarbonate that would pierce the main volume functioning both as an independent and cohesive element at the same time.
