The apartment, previously denominated as “the building’s caretaker apartment”, sits on top of six storey residential building, with two separate entrances.
Connected to the building’s two separate stair core, the apartment has two diametrically opposed entrances, joined by a long corridor and presents a highly comparted and disconnected spatial distribution.

When we started to build this project we had no idea how was it going to end up looking. This has been a project designed day after day on site, solving problems, creating an intense teamwork together with the client and the builders.

Our clients in Amsterdam gave us the opportunity to make a design for their home, do the elaboration and guide the project until completion. They live in a beautiful and popular antebellum residential block with a large courtyard garden, which is divided in private backyards. This spacious backyard provided the ideal opportunity to transform the already beautiful dwelling into a contemporary family house. We created a large entrance, many bedrooms, a large bathroom, and a beautiful, light-flooded, kitchen.

This modest renovation resists the current inner-ring suburban trend towards demolition of older, smaller homes in favor of new over-scaled ‘farmhouses.’ The clients, a young family with two small children wanted more space for play and individual bedrooms but expressed a desire not to ‘lose one another’ in a home too vast or impersonal. Their one-story bungalow, a relic of the ﬁrst wave of suburban development in this area, has been expanded through the careful integration of appropriately scaled additional program and volume. The modest scale of the addition both responds to the client’s programmatic needs and limits the environmental footprint of the proposal. A carport and eﬀiciency apartment on the ﬁrst ﬂoor were removed to make way for a new addition containing a ﬁrst-ﬂoor playroom and a partial second story with side-by-side bedrooms for the children connected through a ‘Jack & Jill’ bathroom as well as a new Master Suite. The family room’s double-height volume binds all of the above and provides access to the garden beyond through a covered porch tucked under the Master Suite. Strategically placed south-facing roof apertures capture and direct daylight deep into the north-facing playroom and porch year-round, reducing the need for artiﬁcial lighting. New expansive windows frame views to a mature Japanese maple tree in the yard.

The renovation of Manassu beach bar and restaurant was designed by ASPASIA TAKA Architects Creative Lab in 2017. The freshness of the summer and the multifunctionality of the space were the main tasks for the redesign proposal of the famous beach bar, which lies at the Sithonia peninsula in Halkidiki. The design took into consideration the fully integrated into the sea site, thus the approach included use of natural materials and respect to nature. The concept is to create areas that embrace the guests so as to provide both relaxation and entertainment. The new amenities include a restaurant, a bar and multiple lounges that are located all around. Furthermore, changes in the ground levels optimized the different views from the bar to the sea. Moreover, the use of natural materials, such as stone and wood strengthen the connection to nature. Last but not least, a blend of textiles offers a variety of patterns and style.

This project involves the transformation of a Georgian three-storey terraced house near Dublin’s Docklands from three bed-sits into one light-filled ‘upside-down’ house with a new black tower in the garden.
The original Georgian property comprised three floors of accommodation, which had been converted into separate studio bed-sits on each floor. Most of the original decorative plasterwork and joinery features of the home had been lost, with the exception of the main hallway and staircase, which were reasonably intact.

The present building is showing off a typical facade of the eighties office towers’ architecture, with a less satisfying relationship with the soil, a heightened repeat of a floor standard, of a window type, with a simple and smooth façade thus a kind of autism to its own context.
The building wanted to be a tower, but it’s not. Its small length didn’t allow it to compete with its close sisters. Its location, on the fringes of La Defense’s slab, makes it belong more to the “domestic” city and its codes. Thus, he should renounce to his solitary object status.
The project is trying to rectify those miscommunications by making “Ampère e+” belong to the urban system of Courbevoie’s city, by supporting the transfer of the circular boulevard into an urban boulevard. Our task was also to shape and rank the present building, to make it comprehensible and careful to its urban context.
