Mosman House by Rolf Ockert; Architect.

Sunday, February 19th, 2017

Article source: Rolf Ockert; Architect.

Seen from the street the house appears minimal.

Set on a large block falling towards the harbour beach reserve many layers of living spaces are revealed as one progresses through the house.

Private rooms, sauna and gym are housed in the southern pavilion, opened to natural air and light via a landscaped courtyard, also revealing some of the rock all this depends on.

Lévesque Project in Quebec, Canada by Mélissa Ohnona Design

Sunday, February 19th, 2017

Article source: v2com

Located in Laval, a Montreal suburb, this century old house underwent a complete overhaul of its interior. The owner/designer Mélissa Ohnona wanted to maximize the space as well as the natural light and exterior views from the house, to create a welcoming and functional family home.

The space had been renovated in the 90’s, leaving it oddly divided and devoid of any original charm. Therefore, it was decided they would start from scratch and completely rethink the layout. Not much was left intact; the kitchen, bathroom, powder room, even the stairs were relocated. An extension was also added on the second floor, in order to have 4 bedrooms (allowing each of their 3 daughters to have their own bedroom).

“Los Álamos de Fuentecisneros” Block of 59 houses in Madrid, Spain by Otto Medem Arquitectura S.L.

Sunday, February 19th, 2017

Article source: Otto Medem Arquitectura S.L.

As the architect, from the begining of the project, I set out the following main goals:

Make the most of the characteristics of the terrain and enhance them by choosing the perfect orientation.

Design a set of housing complex that escapes from the everyday conventionalism of collective housing, and that is able to transmit and generate feelings. I want people to be overcome with emotion as soon as they enter the complex and feel the  beauty and harmony that each home provides, without sacrificing functionality.

Departamento Parque Reforma in Mexico City by Lopez Duplan Arquitectos

Sunday, February 19th, 2017

Article source: Lopez Duplan Arquitectos

For some housing developments, showroom apartments must be done and the main challenge is the creation of a residential environment with all the necessary details to appeal to anyone. It is almost a dream comes true, a space that has to be design without a client, but it is exactly the opposite, it is a space that will be visited by many clients and the goal is to catch everybody’s eye and most specially to make them feel: “I want to live here”.

RF III APARTMENT in Lisboa, Portugal by Joao Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos

Sunday, February 19th, 2017

Article source: Joao Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos

Transformation of a 4 bedroom apartment into a 2 bedroom apartment, increasing this way its social areas .

The apartment was essentially developed along its length, structuring itself around a long corridor. However, thanks to two existing courtyards in the building it benefited from the entry of natural light in its inner part. The house was quite compartmentalized, and the rooms, with tiny areas, were mainly oriented to those courtyards. On the rear façade there used to be a very large and disqualified marquise devoted to storage and cleaning areas. It had only one complete bathroom.
