House expansion in Zugló, Hungary by batlab architects

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016

Article source: batlab architects

We first met our customers (Anikó and Bálint) in the summer of 2013 who wanted to expand their home due to their growing family. Our task was to build a whole new storey  and a ground floor terrace after removing the hip roof. The family has outlined their requirements for the rooms, however we were given a free hand in the design and appearance.

There was enough time for planning, the customers spent a lot of time mulling over their new home, and we have also redesigned the house multiple times. While one week we thought that something is a good solution, the other week we thought the opposite.

“House in La Isla” in Nordelta, Argentina by CIBA ARCHITECTURE

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016

Article source: CIBA ARCHITECTURE

Monochromatic, distinguishing the house volume detaching it from the rest. White, so its emphatic forms are not mixed with the environment.

Its symmetry creates a linear, compact look, reserving all the intimacy to the back facade, completely open to the lake.

Northern Rivers Beach House in Northern NSW, Australia by REFRESH*DESIGN

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016

Article source: REFRESH*DESIGN

Located in a beachside setting, the architectural brief for this project was to design a contemporary, yet cost effective three-bedroom house, well connected to nature and featuring subtropical open-plan living in a temperate climate. The initial premise for the design was to ‘re-interpret’ the beach house by integrating traditional materials of corrugated metal, fibre cement sheeting and timber elements, onto a contemporary and dynamic shape.

Neu Leopoldau in Vienna, Austria by feld72 Architekten ZT GmbH

Sunday, November 6th, 2016

Article source: feld72 Architekten ZT GmbH 

Smart environment for young and young-at-heart home living on the outskirts of the city in a post-industrial complex. Strategies for creating community: this starts with identification through the design and continues with the quarter’s connecting ring structure and the belt formed by the wall surrounding the property, with special communication areas reflecting the layering principle of the building. A residential building as smart module of social life: tiered and networked communal zones and communication areas create the village in the buildings, and special extra spaces for whatever self-development is to be defined in the surrounding homes connect the private with the (semi-) public sphere. A building as a very flexible structure able to inspire the imagination and joie de vivre.

CLOYS Apartment in Paris, France by Atelier 56S

Sunday, November 6th, 2016

Article source: Atelier 56S

An ancient parking lot was divided into different apartments in the heart of Paris. To transform this raw surface into apartments, the project management wanted the structure to keep its industrial aspect.

The main challenge was to take advantage of the unique light source: South-oriented and situated in one of the apartment’s angles. The idea was to compact the night area to benefit from a higher flexibility in the living space. Peripheral wood furniture, serving as library, kitchen, desk and storage, was made to create space and visual continuity in the whole apartment. A mobile wall can occasionally be used to host friends.

The concrete beams and ceiling remain to keep the spirit of the place, while lessening the resonance thanks to a wooden slats-made false ceiling.
