Copenhagen Spirit in Moscow, Russia by buro5

Wednesday, June 13th, 2018

Article source: buro5 

The client has lived in Copenhagen for many years, so he feels comfortable in a minimalistic interior and without curtains on the windows.

During his life in Copenhagen, the owner of this Moscow apartment was accustomed to a laconic atmosphere and the absence of curtains on the windows, so he to make an interior in Scandinavian style. The only thing he need more was painst. So in the interior there were now fashionable shades of pink and blue, as well as furniture and accessories of Scandinavian brands. “The lack of curtains on the windows did not bother anyone – to the house opposite there are three hundred meters,”. Area of ​​55 m² is located in a Stalinist house built in 1957. The architect did not have the opportunity for a radical redevelopment: the load-bearing wall and the beam pass through the apartment, so he combined only the kitchen and living room, and left the bedroom isolated.

Reconstruction of an Attic Flat in Ostrovského, Czech Republic by LOOOOX

Wednesday, June 13th, 2018

Article source: LOOOOX

Original condition before reconstruction – the original condition of the flat was a little confusing and at first did not look like it needed major reconstruction, only minor modifications. After the original owner  moved out, the shortcomings of the original reconstruction work only done “to the eye”, became visible. Different types of flooring materials painted a single color (even over the tiles in the bathroom). The crookedness of floors, leaking windows etc. The standard of the original reconstruction was set very low from today’s point of view.

Luxurious Franschhoek Manor House in Africa by INHOUSE

Wednesday, June 13th, 2018

Article source: INHOUSE

Award-winning design studio, Inhouse, has completed the interior of a privately-owned manor house in Franschhoek in the picturesque Cape Winelands. The home was built from scratch in collaboration with Chris de Hart Architects with the aim of capturing the sweep of a spacious plantation-style country estate, with aesthetic touches inspired by the film Casablanca.

The house features large custom-made French doors that open outwards onto courtyards and verandas that complement the landscape. Inside, the house is made up of spacious rooms with high ceilings that display ornate moulding and coffer details. These details are key decorative features and a strategic choice by Inhouse intended to soften the vastness of the space. A large collection of antique furniture was included in the design and Inhouse created an interior scheme that would be sympathetic to the finishing.

Whitewashing, Enjalbegar in spanish, many languages ​​have verbs that describe the action of lime painting the architectures to clean and embellish them.

In this case it is about updating an apartment with a characteristic distribution of the Valencian expansion district. This type of buildings with a high depth of block and a small central courtyard determines the possible distributions. We approach this work in a systematic way, but here the action of whitewashing goes beyond the treatment of surfaces.

The southward-sloping plot not far from basel is framed to the east and south by a beautiful deciduous forest. Breathtaking views into the dense, deep- green foliage in the summer and the leafless and airy branch structure in the winter were a decisive factor in calibrating the daylight and arranging the spaces in this home in interplay with the natural surroundings, becoming the leitmotif for the architecture.

Totoro in Paris, France by KOZ architects

Tuesday, June 12th, 2018

Article source: KOZ architects

The Paul Bourget neighborhood has long been a « terra incognita » of the Parisian cityscape. To the outside it is a citadel hanging above the tumultuous « périphérique » ring road and the swirling canopy of the Kellerman Park. Inwards it is a modest piece of the post-war urban planning boom, introverted and peacefully forgotten. Its striking sense of community is so close and yet so distant from the hustle of the nearby Porte d’Italie. Do we know of other places in Paris where residents seem to come « out of the woods » to enter the city?

The house is located in a suburban commune of Hanoi which has undergone a rapid process of urbanization. It is designedin a philosophy that it will help shape a place similar to the natural environment in an artificial manner.

The proposed structure of the house resembles that of a Cave. The overall structure is made up of and enclosed by two layers of brick wall meeting one another at an intersection, with alternate ‘green’ arrangements of plants and vegetables. Bricks have long been a familiar local material and widely used in rural areas of Vietnam with a simple manual construction method.
