FGV house in Catania, Italy by Tuttiarchitetti

Friday, February 16th, 2018

Article source: Tuttiarchitetti 

From 1 room of 48 sqm to 4 rooms of 16 sqm: increase of surfaces, multiplication of space. Two overturned and turned 90 ° turnstiles – in birch plywood panels – operate this magic, also providing the “disappearance” of the metal loft, heavy burden of the previous real estate RE-structuring, and returning “air” to the compartment. The space is so circular: from the living room, to the kitchen, to the study, to the upper bedroom: that from the living room, on the study, connected to the kitchen by a yellow monochrome staircase “dug out” in the birch portals; as well as the front desk counter.

Casa Sophie Apartment Refurbishment in Gràcia, Barcelona”

The project consists of the complete refurbishment of a 160m2 apartment, in one of the most important axis of the city. The geometry of its original plan layout corresponds to the building typology with load-bearing walls parallel to the facade and the rooms positioned to each side of a long corridor. The owners were attracted by the traditional typology of the flat and its exceptional illumination by the three patios. It had not undergone any fundamental change during its 100-year life.

Art and Light Apartment in New York by Andrew Mikhael Architect

Friday, February 16th, 2018

Article source: Andrew Mikhael Architect 

Imagined as a gallery for the client’s artwork and lifestyle – colorful and social.

The apartment, in a building that was originally a factory, looked like a regular old rental when we started: home depot finishes, awkward walls, a tiny master bath and a powder room. My clients brightened it up with their colorful art collection, and I wanted to design a home for them that would inspire and freshen their palate and complement the artwork for their frequent home parties.

Camberwell House in Australia by AM Architecture

Sunday, February 11th, 2018

Article source: AM Architecture

The site is located in Camberwell, Victoria on a unique L shape block, overlooking a leafy park. The existing architecture is rendered precast at first floor, sitting on external clinker brick planes at its base.  Its living areas were originally situated at first floor.

The brief was mostly pragmatic. More space for a large family, better zoning, and importantly to create a better connection to the outdoors but not lose the stunning views of the neighbouring parkland.

Grid Apartment in Rome, Italy by Brain Factory – Architecture & Design

Sunday, February 11th, 2018

Article source: Brain Factory – Architecture & Design 

The renovation of this bright apartment located in the Prati district of Rome represents a perfect blend between the customer needs and the design intentions: in fact, even though it is 80 square meters, it was designed by favoring a displacement of the spaces in favor of a large openspace, environment most lived by homeowners, and reducing to the maximum, but always in line with urban parameters, the sleeping area and the bathrooms. Contextual to a wide architectural requirement, there was a desire to separate the kitchen environment from the living room through a glazed system divided by a regular square mesh grille and with a very industrial aspect: it was made into galvanized iron profiles with micaceous finishing and artisanally assembled on site and completed with stratified glazing. The mood of the apartment prefers the total white combined with the warm tones of the oak parquet floor. On the theme of the grid also plays the espalier of the bedroom: in drawing the wall there are dense parallel wooden profiles that have also the function as shelves that can be placed at various heights. To exalt the pure formal minimalism, there are wall-wire wardrobes and a very linear and rigorous technical lighting.

Crouch End sits in a hollow between the sharp ridge of Crouch Hill to the south and Muswell Hill to the north. Between the dialogue of views from Crouch Hill to the iconic Alexandra Palace the topography steeply descends along residential streets of terrace housing. The house forms part of the final group of four early Edwardian terrace properties on this path.

Curtain Cottage in Carlton North, Australia by Apparte Studio

Friday, February 9th, 2018

Article source: Apparte Studio

Passive energy design

The narrow house faces north and the front living area becomes flooded with sunlight, penetrating deep into the hallway.

The raised cathedral ceiling draws up much of the hot air during occasional hot summer periods, leaving the lower areas of the house cooler.

The existing house had good thermal properties to begin with. Most of both party walls are shared with a neighbour and there is good cross-flow ventilation to release heat when the front and rear doors are opened.

The large skylight over the dining area to the south saves hours of artificial lighting each day.

House C in Valencia, Spain by Estudio Veinteporveinte + Miguel Torres Architect

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

Article source: Veinteporveinte + Miguel Torres Architect 

The house is located in the urban plot characteristic of the Maritime district of the city, the neighborhood of Cabanyal.

Dating from the mid-20s, it shows the traditional typology at the time: oversized day and representation spaces and two resting rooms, one on each side. At the back of the plot, the patio with the kitchen and toilet facing each other.
