Residential – Disappearing Corridor in Hong Kong, China by Bean Buro

Sunday, January 22nd, 2017

Article source: Bean Buro 

Bean Buro has designed a 1,485sqft (138sqm) apartment for a young family of four in the south side of Hong Kong Island. Unchanged since the early 1990’s, the apartment featured closed off rooms accessed by a long corridor, and large windows looking over the ocean.

Retreating from Hong Kong’s busy lifestyle, the apartment’s entrance is a semi-enclosed foyer which marks the threshold between inside and outside.

Designed with a comfortable seat, playful hooks and concealed shoes and coat cabinet, it allows for a moment of pause and appreciation of the home.

The PI Penthouse in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil by Paula Martins Arquitetura, Interiores e Detalhamento

Sunday, January 22nd, 2017

Article source:  Paula Martins Arquitetura, Interiores e Detalhamento

This old three story penthouse has been fully remodelled from a terrible condition, and is now perfect for a family with children. The apartment faces Guanabara’s Bay and comes with an astonishing view of Rio de Janeiro, Sugarloaf and Christ the Redeemer. Most of the original walls have been demolished and the areas rearranged, creating more open spaces, and meaning each bedroom now has its own en-suite bathroom. The dark interior and heavy atmosphere have been completely replaced by beautiful light and open space. The facades and roof are insulated, and all the outside walls covered with tiles to avoid constant maintenance.

Bunga Low – low energy refurbishment of a sixties bungalow in Sint-Denijs-Westrem, Belgium by urbain architectencollectief

Sunday, January 22nd, 2017

Article source: urbain architectencollectief 

In this project a solitary sixties bungalow with a gentle sloped roof was refurbished and extended.

A new clear plan was distilled from the existing, with a maximum relation with the garden.

The existing rooms on the northern facade of the bungalow were adjusted in order to form a functional strip, serving as entrance hall, bathroom, storage rooms and a private office space. The living spaces were aligned in an open space along the southern facade, benefiting from large windows that give acces to morning and afternoon terraces and the garden. Two furniture elements divide the open space: a fireplace and a kitchen cabinet.

Dogok Maximum in Seoul, Korea by Moon Hoon

Friday, January 20th, 2017

Article source: Moon Hoon

It reflects the client’s personality in a frank manner. Considering that the client, who had dreamt all kinds of mysterious dreams only to overcome them while living in a house built on a rock of mystical forces at a high area of Gangbuk, Seoul, purchased the plot of a fortuneteller and a shaman beside a tall wall in Gangnam, this is a world that must be full of many unexplainable things. In contemporary terms, this building would be considered a mixed-use narrow house, combining a basement studio for the client’s son, a photographer, a reception area, as well as a residence for mother and son that has been equipped with a compact elevator to account for the weakened joints of the elderly.

Domus Aurea in Nuevo León, México by GLR Arquitectos in collaboration with architect Alberto Campo Baeza

Friday, January 20th, 2017

Article source: GLR arquitectos

Placed in one of the most exclusive and privileged zones of Monterrey with an incomparable view towards the “Sierra Madre Oriental”, we found the “Sorteo Tec’s House 202”.

The residence is a tribute to Barragán, a great Mexican architect in whose designs abounds the strong presence of the light. This brightness is being reinterpreted in the project with a stunning wall covered in a golden sheet, which is also a tribute to another great artist named Mathias Goeritz.
Its shinning gives the home a magical touch that extends across the entire building, like a modern Domus Aurea.
