The loft is located in the old garage / workshop residence built by Henricão own in the 50’s, located in the Garden neighborhood in BH.
The project arose from the need Grandpa Henricão (Henrique Fernando Tetzç) to have a new place to live with accessibility, as access to the inner area of the house happens for a very long ladder and Grandpa with its 92 years (20 / 04/1923) could not overcome all the steps in an easy way. And with that he went to rent part of the house where he lived to the nearby hospital.

The exceptional and particularly innovative conditions of living given by the « Hauts plateaux » project, phases 1&2, makes it « primum inter pares » and give a clear and new proposal for the housing issue. This project means to create new conditions of living, in which one can find on one hand the desire to live in collective and comfortable housing and on the second hand the necessity of intimacy. It gives the qualities and the liberties of an individual house in collective structure, inside an urban agglomeration. This project carries the idea of the evolution of life of the people, it aims to offer pleasure of living. In this sense, it is sustainable.

Forma Vila is a residential house on the outskirts of Ravne na Koroškem, a small Alpine town close to the Slovenian-Austrian border. The town has an over 400 year-long tradition of iron-making, and the local ironworks have had a significant social-economic influence on the town, its sports and culture. The latter has been especially evident since 1964, when the factory started supporting sculpture symposiums “Forma Viva” for artists from all over the world. There are 40 Forma Viva sculptures located all over town, making it a large outdoor gallery, and it is this cosmopolitan project that has given Forma Vila its design context and served as its inspiration. The name itself, Forma Vila, is a play on the words Forma Viva, but the main resemblance between the art movement and the house lies in form and the materials used.

The design of the new student housing for the University of Southern Denmark in Odense is based on a strong community spirit. The 250 student residences are located in three interconnected 15-storey buildings. This means that the residence has no front or back, but appears attractive from a 360-degree perspective. The building’s distinctive shape will make it easily recognizable on the campus, and clearly advertises its distinct residential content.

The territory of the former wagon-repair factory \”Sofia\” includes preserved buildings and manufactories of the factory from the early 20th century. Under conditions of the renovation of this historical space we tried to implement the basic principles of cultural design, use the basic principles of classicism in our project. The main planning axis, starting from the building of the shopping center (Saves workshop building) runs through the whole territory and dissolves in nature. The core of the residential complex becomes the canal. The quarterly buildings facades solution was carried out using contemporary architectural language, but using regularities of building’s classic facade. Most of the site area presents by residential area, which includes neighborhoods, residential buildings, apartment buildings-cylinders, children’s institutions, trade and service complex, FLC and garages. The boulevards channel and pond axis unites areas as well as green territory of parks. Areas with dense buildings are interspersed with open spaces, parks and public spaces. We offer three types of \”Park\”: a memorial or historical, regular or \”French\” and an irregular or \”English\”. Transport idea of the project – the exception of transit through the residential complex and the reduction of traffic in it to a minimum.

What surprises people most when entering and walking on the glowing white surface in this particular Private Residence (Williamsburg, VA) is when they find out they are walking on a sea of glass! Yes, GLASS! Not marble, not granite, but GLASS! Nathan Allan has created a very fresh, unique flooring surface, which is smooth to touch on the majority of the glass surface, yet has an almost invisible safety finish permanently embedded in the glass surface.
