A stand of silver birches marks the place. Their trunks are white heat, tempered by pools of black. Everything here is light and shade. Taking cue from their slender friends, black downpipes score the white walls of the house, disappearing into the canopy above.
Approaching the threshold, the visitor is welcomed by pockets of shade nestled among protective brick walls. A large pivot window and a large pivot door throw themselves wide open, exposing the full throat of the house to the garden.

This traditional 1900s family home in suburban in the Paris, was fully renovated by Camille Hermand Architectures to house a young professional family with adolescent children. Prior to renovations, the house hadn’t undergone any work in several decades. Home to three generations of the same family, the house was loosely divided into three separate apartments each with their own kitchen, but no indoor bathroom.

The renovation of this 80-sqm-apartment located on the last floor of a traditional early 1900 English villa has used a very linear design as a frame for an eclectic mix of modern, ancient and ethnic details.
The designers found a space that had been strongly transformed during the last renovation made in the 80’s. Revisiting the stylistic choices made in order to lighten and de-materialize the existing structure, they tried to create back a dialogue with the traditional architecture.

Over the weekend the competition for the future development of Cologne’s harbour was settled. The mayor of Cologne, Henriette Reker, announced Danish architects COBE as winner of the competition. The project transforms the old industrial harbour into a lively and sustainable neighbourhood with a huge waterfall and a big public pool as the new landmark. The pool collects rainwater and waste heat from the district and becomes a new attraction in the city.

This project is the renovation of a unit in a twenty-five year old apartment building for a married couple. We inserted a single wooden wall into the unit, which is already partitioned by the existing structural concrete walls. Passing from the entrance through the entire interior space, the wooden wall organizes a series of spaces along its length.

Tucked away in the country side town of Breda, the Netherlands, sits a renovated old ‘flemish barn’ converted into an office. Developed by dutch firm arend groenewegen architect, the structure takes the ingredients of the original architecture form which consists of the wooden construction, low black facade and large thatched roof; and transforms it into a functioning work space. When the owner decided to stop his livestock business, the use of the existing barn built in the 1800, originally used for storage of hay and equipment needed a new vision. The renovation of the structure was in breach of the applicable zoning where the plot was designated as an ‘agricultural building block. The municipality changed the purpose of the area allowing an office to function in the space.

The renovation of this established landmark shopping and commercial complex in Xujiahui will deliver a refreshing, fashionable and aspirational new destination to the city. At the heart of the concept is the integration of shopping and non-shopping spaces and experiences throughout the seven storey of the building. Our creative planning and design will turn this well recognised address of Shanghai into a stage of experimental new ways of enjoying shopping and free time echoing contemporary demands of the ever young and mind-changing clientele.

They have asked us to rethink the entrance to the house. The direct access to the dining area was preventing the sensation of surprise that every home should have.
A big sliding panel put in front of you, after having passed the entrance staircase, serves a dual purpose: to arouse your curiosity and to oblige your choice of itinerary, that is, walking up the stairs to the bedrooms or entering the living area. A compact space has been created in order to reveal in advance the expanded and bright living area of the house.
