House with Villa Silhouette in Lyttleton, New Zealand by Irving Smith Architects

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

Article source: Irving Smith Architects

House with Villa Silhouette

A house after the Christchurch quakes. One creative home comes down, another goes up, the new silhouetting the old, reminding, resettling, providing lineage.

Where the former villa sat square and inward, the new layers out across the southern view, shaping to the silhouette for light, and framing a greater appreciation of the everyday.

RG House in San Zenone degli Ezzelini, Italy by Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin

Wednesday, December 28th, 2016

Article source: Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin

The project involved the renovation and extension of an attic developed on three levels located in a hilly area. The main objective was to design a new access to the attic, independent from the rest of the large family house built in the ’90s. A new volume porch with a double height was created, fitting to the house containing the entry staircase which from the garden leads to the covered terrace.The interiors see a large living area with a kitchen integrated to the living room, three bedrooms with their bathrooms, composed in a sequence as a sort of promenade, with an organizational and spatial arrangement reminiscent of a raumplan. To increase the sense of spaciousness and brightness of the rooms, the old wooden beams were painted in opaque enamel.  Quality materials have been used as with the ipe’ wood planks for the exterior, the porcelain tiles of various shapes and colours for the bathrooms; some other elements already in place such as the afromosia parquet and the Asiago stone were instead given new shine.

RM HOUSE in Romano d’Ezzelino, Italy by Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin

Tuesday, December 27th, 2016

Article source: Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin

The main aspect the attention of this project was focused upon, was the pursuit of  the characterization of the living area, which was rethought according to the “coating” of the existing central pillar. The identification of the new “appearance,” has made it possible to determine and distinguish two specific living areas and to create at the same time a new volume / container which services the TV area. New recessed light fixtures and “blades” of indirect light, consisting of hidden LED strips have been installed. New flooring made of knotty oak has also made it possible to level out the spaces which were previously fragmented by continuous visual discontinuities, determined by the different floor surfaces. All the service areas have been modernized thanks to the use of new materials and surfaces, such as the use of large slabs of porcelain stoneware and coloured enamels.

Tre.3 in Legnago, Italy by Studio Athesis

Sunday, December 25th, 2016

Article source: Studio Athesis

The building is adjacent to the historic city center of Legnago. The project includes a modern re-interpretation of the sixteenth and seventeenth-century buildings situated in the historic centers of our cities. The new volume fits into the already-existing buildings with such proportions as to mediate between the impressive volumes present in the rear part of the parcel and the relatively-small houses overlooking the perimeter. The main façade overlooking Via G. Martino, is marked by full and empty spaces with three full parts separated by two pillared loggias; the building is volumetrically symmetric with respect to the central axis of the main body. The vertical division is also tripartite according to ancient traditions: rustication on the lower part, plaster in the middle with a window-framed cornice at the top (skyline). In the main body are some embedded, proportioned red balconies that become the adornment of the façade. The building slopes down in the rear, this forming terraces at different levels, providing ample, exposed spaces available to users.

CT HOUSE in Bassano del Grappa, Italy by Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin

Sunday, December 25th, 2016

Article source: Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin

This renovation project has involved a detached house integrated in an urban context located in the outskirts of Bassano. It’s a house built on 3 levels with large windows overlooking the garden. The spaces were reorganized and elegant natural materials inspired by the years of construction of the house, were used throughout. The addition of unique pieces of design makes it more contemporary, while maintaining its original identity at the same time. A sole wooden flooring  levels out all the surfaces and the use of soft yet firm tones colours conveys the feeling of a warm atmosphere despite the wide spaces and the white of much of the finish.

Carlisle Street Extension in Adelaide, Australia by SANS-ARC Studio

Sunday, December 25th, 2016

Article source: SANS-ARC

The Carlisle Street extension is a foray into a new-Australian vernacular. Familiar materials and form are used with a higher-consideration to context and passive design, exploring a vernacular for the modern-day. The extension is restrained and simple; a volume of space that is light-filled and expansive yet private.

Transformation of an industrial building into a multifunctional space

At the beginning of 2016, BlueFocus Communication Group decided to develop a series of venues in multiple locations across Mainland China. The first was then established in Beijing, at the same location used for the Group’s Headquarters, a former Panasonic factory complex of recent renovation. Such a decision is an unmistakable reflection of the company’s priorities, to evolve in China from a manufacturing power into a creative force, under the leadership of its charismatic Chairman Mr. Zhao Wenquan.
