Remodeling A Family Home in Lucerne, Switzerland by STEREO ARCHITEKTUR

Monday, October 9th, 2017

Article source:  STEREO ARCHITEKTUR

On the ground floor the main operation consists in adding the volume of the f ormer garage to the living room area and therein placing the new kitchen. Not only provides this transformation the required additional living space, but also the whole spatial organisation and the visual relations are completely redefined. Previously, the entrance, the kitchen and the living romm were rather disjoined from each other. Now they come together in a generous spatial entity which is articulated by the new kitchen. The floor of the former garage is a worktop-hight below the living room. This difference is preserved, which results in the worktop being on the same level as the ground floor. The sunken position of the kitchen generates interesting and surprising visual relations. Materialized in concrete and massive oak, the kitchen is both a structural element and a spatial piece of furniture. The entrance receives a sober overhaul and a modest wardrobe in order to clean up the previous spatial Situation.

Renovation of protected houses in Bruges, Belgium by atelier tom vanhee

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

Article source: atelier tom vanhee

Two disused protected 17th-century houses on a brewery site in the centre of Bruges were rebuilt into a family home (with existing retail and storage space).

The different window types and added rear façade are witness of successive conversions over time. The design starts from the changes the building has undergone and adds a new layer. The historical and authentic parts are kept or reconstructed and, where necessary, structurally improved. These elements (doors, fireplaces, beams, stairs) go hand in hand with new elements, and remain legible.

Loft L in Paris, France by Jbmn Architectes

Sunday, August 20th, 2017

Article source: Jbmn Architectes 

The renovation of this apartment seeks to exploit the high height available in this former artist studio located on the top floor of a Parisian building built at the beginning of the 20th century. Two mezzanines are arranged and face each other around a large central void. Stairs made of metal and solid wood, arranged symmetrically, give access to the rooms thus created. Large balustrades in fishing nets delimit the living area of the staircase. With the opening/closing of large internal shutters, the rooms can open on the central void or on the contrary isolate themselves, allowing a flexibility of uses.
