A narrow site high up on a precipice overlooks the inner Stockholm archipelago to the south. It meets a dense row of pine trees to the west and a softer grove of deciduous trees to the east. One enters the site from the north, where a generous staircase mediates the initial steep south-facing slope. The stairs follow a concrete wall that forms the spine of the structure, and lead the visitor downwards between the concrete wall on the one side and a wooden volume on the other. The staircase leaves the visitor at a gap in the concrete wall, providing a glimpse of the garden on the other side. The promenade continues along the closed wall, towards the view and the water, now flanked to the west by the row of pine trees. A second opening in the wall presents the entrance to the house and extends a passage through and across it, into the garden.

The Bartlett Residence was designed as a luxury vacation home in the middle of a dry tropical forest area. The property has a long and narrow building envelope area (limited by the development), that works parallel to the slope of the land, which is a fairly constant natural slope of around 30 to 35 degrees, forming into a natural ravine in the middle of the buildable space.

We first met our customers (Anikó and Bálint) in the summer of 2013 who wanted to expand their home due to their growing family. Our task was to build a whole new storey and a ground floor terrace after removing the hip roof. The family has outlined their requirements for the rooms, however we were given a free hand in the design and appearance.
There was enough time for planning, the customers spent a lot of time mulling over their new home, and we have also redesigned the house multiple times. While one week we thought that something is a good solution, the other week we thought the opposite.

This project is significant for its seamless spaces and ingenious cabinet making.
Michelangelo Olivieri has conceived walls as containing spaces, in order to achieve greater purity.
The kitchen presents well-defined volumes and cabinets which include all the structural elements, such as household appliances and kitchen tools, in a white and black palette that blends with the wood shades.

For the Passaggio project our firm had to design a cocktail restaurant, which would be completely different from what we usually encounter. The clients requested a truly innovative and out of the box design, that would bring together elements of nature whilst achieving perfect harmony between the natural elements and the crowded metropolis.

This project involved undertaking alterations to an existing family home on the cliff top edge of Rothesay bay, Auckland. The brief included taking advantage of the coastal sea views, providing a modern four bedroom home with separate lounge attached to the master bedroom. The home has been designed around the existing garage and footprint of the existing ground floor, recycling as much of the existing slab and groundwork structures. A combination of cedar shiplap vertical and horizontal, metal cladding and plaster have been used combined with low lying roofs help to break up the buildings form. Working with the existing parameters and layered approach, has resulted in a modern home that rests comfortably between neighbouring high and low properties on a cliff top site.
