The project presents the renovation of an apartment located in a building on the ‘Eixample’ neighbourhood, Barcelona.
Originally, the apartment presented a decayed and dark image due to the excessive subdivided rooms. The patio is very narrow and it scarcely receives light. Except for the two rooms next to the main facade, the apartment was barely illuminated by natural light.

This is a renovation project of an apartment in downtown Tokyo. The client said unintentionally that they want to spend a brilliant time together nowhere else but in their house. Then I thought, “Indeed”. I always find that houses around us are way too far from the reality of each family life and communities, and they all look alike. It seems as if there were no identity in family life, which is ridiculous.

In the historic quarter of Calatrava in the centre of Palma old town buildings are full of history, but time and weather are also talking great toll, very often the palaces are in need of renovation.
And it is in this context that the top two floors of an historic building originating from the 17th century could be joined together with all the roofs creating terraces on 3 levels, taking advantage of the spectacular view of roof landscapes, the cathedral, several churches and the sea, and at the same time enjoying the very quiet green inner court, typical element of the palaces in the medieval city centre.

The reconversion of the Mining Site of Wallers-Arenberg is in the middle of the Agglomeration community “La Porte du Hainaut” which is, at the same time, initiating and owner of this project.
The wish to mobilize this site for a project emanates from several points:
To rehabilitate and reallocate a site with very high historical and patrimonial value, classified as an Historic monument at the World heritage list of UNESCO, under Evolutionary Cultural Landscapes. http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/1360

A contempory double story extension clad in zinc boldly pushes the boundaries of this family home in the conservative Adelaide suburb of St Peter’s. Whilst the 5m hipped roof ensures reference to the front of the home, the extension proudly asserts itself over the sloping block, seamlessly connecting to an outdoor timber framed deck, pitched high over an infinity above ground pool. The overall result is a confident statement about modern architecture’s place in such a historic context- it can create a wonderful contrast, redefining our appreciation of ‘elegance’ itself.

I renovated a room of an old Japanese apartment into a flat for new lifestyle by inserting several simple wooden boxy volumes.
The room is located in a boundary between an old town and a developing district around Tokyo. From this room on the top floor of the building, we see a scenery like Rear Window from Hitchcock below.

This is a renovation for our own apartment in Kanagawa.
.8 (TENHACHI) Architect & Interior design reconfigured the layout of the 67-square-meter property, creating one big open space with two open box spaces. The concrete ceiling and beams are left exposed throughout, contrasting with the white walls and furniture doors that have been added. None of the walls reach the ceiling, which allows us to see that the new infill pieces are different from the structure of the original concrete.

JD Architects (JDA) has recently completed its ambitious redevelopment of Cinque Ports Street, the 1,050 sq. m. former Central Garage site in Rye. Derelict for fourteen years, these buildings have been given a new lease of life with a striking, angular wooden façade made from Kebony. With its clever design and sustainable focus, Cinque Ports Street was announced as a winner at this year’s RIBA Regional South East Award.

Brecon Estate Winery was bestowed a Merit Design Award for Architecture at the 2016 San Francisco AIA Design Awards. The winery, remodeled by Aidlin Darling Design, is located on the “Emerald Necklace” of Paso Robles’ progressive wine growing region. The jury noted that the real strength of the project is in its simplicity and its restraint; “The crisp detailing and carefully composed materials make this just a stunning project through and through.”
