Isle of Wight Home Receives Modern Renovation in England by Kebony

Sunday, January 31st, 2016

Article source: Kebony

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.

House#01 in Vigevano, Italy by Andrea rubini architetto

Saturday, January 16th, 2016

Article source: Andrea rubini architetto 

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 in Singapore by Studio Wills + Architects

Friday, January 15th, 2016

Article source: Studio Wills + Architects

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.
