Located in Friedrichshain, the building is an “Altbau” (pre-WWII residential building).
As many of the Berliner buildings in the former East Berlin, it underwent the so called “emergency enovation” in the time from the WWII and right after the Fall of the Berlin Wall.

A stunning family home was recently completed on the south coast of the Isle of Wight as part of UK Channel 4’s program ‘Grand Designs’, designed by architect Lincoln Miles. After a near-death experience, Bram and Lisa Vis decided to take life by the horns and build a unique large family home for themselves, family and friends. With floor to ceiling windows looking out to sea and features including a private room, a games room and roof terrace with a swimming pool, the family home is the epitome of the best-of-the-best. Having been inspired by nature, international modernism and the open plan simplicity of the Farnsworth House by Mies van der Rohe, the new build is clad with Kebony wood which brings to the Grand Design the camouflage, beauty and quality which was so desired. Having started the project in March 2013, the new family home is now complete.

Originally built in 1939, the Hambly House is one of only a handful of Art Moderne houses to be found in Ontario. The original building, built for Jack Hambly, is a striking example of streamlined late Art Deco in Hamilton; the flat-roofed building sports an archetypal curved corner with speed-striped stucco walls, nautical-inspired detailing including a porthole window, and a prominent front door surround.

Project house#01 is the result of a 80 square meter apartment (end 1950s) renovation in Vigevano.
I tried merging different cultures, from the love for designers AG Fronzoni and Prouvè on the one hand and my wife’s Scandinavian influence on the other. The outcome is a mix of contemporary elements – tied to our chronological age – accompanied by items from the ’50s/60s that are linked to the age of the building we live in.

Untitled #7 is a renovation to an old 2-storey apartment at The Arris, located within Tanjong Pagar Area in Singapore.
The original pared-down interior stood in stark contrast with a context consisting of an eclectic mix of shop houses adorned with multiple colours, materials, textures and ornaments: There was a strong division between the interior and the external environment.

Architects: PUZZLE’S architecture
The house of the family, built in 1730, is located in the valley of Lustin (Belgium) at the border of a dead end street, next to a huge forest. The plot, an area of 3600 meters square, is strongly undulated. On one side of the land you have the house, and on the other side the forest. Between them, flows a river. The landscape is full of vegetation and is highlighted by grass, trees, an orchard, a vegetable garden and an apiary.
