Quarry House in Victoria, Australia by Hook Turn Architecture

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

Article source: Hook Turn Architecture

Quarry House is a renovation and addition to an existing Victorian terrace in Brunswick East. The design takes its cues from the history of the local area, with particular reference to the brick and bluestone quarrying industries upon which Brunswick was founded. The built form is conceived of as two stacked boxes; the ground floor brick box and the upper storey bluestone box. The existing house was constructed almost entirely of brickwork and the ground floor addition remains faithful to this material. The upper floor recalls the local bluestone industry through a figurative representation of naturally occurring bluestone formations. These tessellated patterns are formed when basaltic lava flows cool to create bluestone, cracking and shearing in geometric arrangements. The upper storey is clad in folded zinc panels which recall columnar basalt, eroded at the rear facade to provide an arched, cave-like outline to the new master bedroom window.

Historical building contains many strong characteristic of space and living and it expresses the significance of the certain age. While facing the renovation of a historical building, our first intention is to “re-specify” the initial gestures of the space in order to remain the condition for the traces of time could be experienced.

House with Villa Silhouette in Lyttleton, New Zealand by Irving Smith Architects

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

House with Villa Silhouette

A house after the Christchurch quakes. One creative home comes down, another goes up, the new silhouetting the old, reminding, resettling, providing lineage.

Where the former villa sat square and inward, the new layers out across the southern view, shaping to the silhouette for light, and framing a greater appreciation of the everyday.

RG House in San Zenone degli Ezzelini, Italy by Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin

Wednesday, December 28th, 2016

Article source: Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin

The project involved the renovation and extension of an attic developed on three levels located in a hilly area. The main objective was to design a new access to the attic, independent from the rest of the large family house built in the ’90s. A new volume porch with a double height was created, fitting to the house containing the entry staircase which from the garden leads to the covered terrace.The interiors see a large living area with a kitchen integrated to the living room, three bedrooms with their bathrooms, composed in a sequence as a sort of promenade, with an organizational and spatial arrangement reminiscent of a raumplan. To increase the sense of spaciousness and brightness of the rooms, the old wooden beams were painted in opaque enamel.  Quality materials have been used as with the ipe’ wood planks for the exterior, the porcelain tiles of various shapes and colours for the bathrooms; some other elements already in place such as the afromosia parquet and the Asiago stone were instead given new shine.

RM HOUSE in Romano d’Ezzelino, Italy by Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin

Tuesday, December 27th, 2016

Article source: Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin

The main aspect the attention of this project was focused upon, was the pursuit of  the characterization of the living area, which was rethought according to the “coating” of the existing central pillar. The identification of the new “appearance,” has made it possible to determine and distinguish two specific living areas and to create at the same time a new volume / container which services the TV area. New recessed light fixtures and “blades” of indirect light, consisting of hidden LED strips have been installed. New flooring made of knotty oak has also made it possible to level out the spaces which were previously fragmented by continuous visual discontinuities, determined by the different floor surfaces. All the service areas have been modernized thanks to the use of new materials and surfaces, such as the use of large slabs of porcelain stoneware and coloured enamels.
