Renesa Architecture Design Interiors’s latest addition to the residential design circuit comes with a typical building to nature relationship. The design content as established by the client was to give a feel of a forest house within the city ambiance.
The House of Plumeria’s design philosophy has been borrowed from the exploration of modernism with respect to nature. The Indian cultural implications create a unique recognizable style of design for the House of Plumeria and has a lasting impact on the viewers passing by.
A conceptual design for a 150 Apartment Residential Proposal in Konyaaltı Beach. 3 blocks at each floor, attached 2+1 in the middle and 3+1 apartments at the corners. Optionally, it becomes all 3+1 or 4+1 and 1+1.
The client demanded a design for a residential apartment in 3 storeys, located in a middle-class district of Semnan city. With respect to negotiations with the client and in order to create a maximal usable area, the design switched from an ordinary apartment block of two separate units to two separate triplex and duplex units, because the client was interested in level differences in one single unit.
An undeveloped sixty-foot wide parcel of land, extending three blocks is a result of two residential developments merging in the 1930’s. In time, houses were built on each end of the three blocks. Moretti’s house began with the purchase of one of these 60’ x 300’ lots, the only lot without an existing house.
The client wanted the apartment slightly bring back the idea of a yacht, but without the “gay and lifebuoys.” It was important to choose materials which are available in stores or which you should not wait long, and make the project on time because the customer need to change house (is better like this in english) as soon as possible .
Planning of the apartment is very successful, we almost did not change it, just removed the wall separating the kitchen area from the living room, replaced by a sliding partition the entire length of the opening in the cloakroom and moved the opening in the master’s bathroom and WC.
The prospect of building a small stand-alone new house on this very restricted garage plot seemed like an improbability until we started to explore the site in three dimensions. We concluded that if we turned the house upside down and arranged the bedrooms and bathrooms on a lower ground floor, with the main living rooms on the ground floor and upper mezzanine levels, then a workable and viable plan form started to emerge. Our brief was to build the largest house possible on this 60 m2 site, which was located at the end of a garden on Velonia Gardens and next to an electricity substation on Amerland Road, with very limited access for excavation. In essence we designed the house in section rather than in plan ie the plan form was generated by the section, and the section through the house allows sunlight to penetrate deep into the interior spaces. Although the house is small in scale, it is not small in stature – in a manner of speaking it is a house that punches above its weight! When you look at the house from the outside it looks remarkably small, but once inside it has the most extraordinary light and airy feel. The positioning of the staircase, central in the house, and being a design feature in its own right encourages the eye to travel up to the mezzanine floor level and down to the basement level, therefore allowing one to perceive the three dimensional quality of the house. On the ground floor, which comprises the entrance off Amerland Road and the kitchen, dining and living areas, one is aware of the space above and space below. The staircase is a relatively lightweight fabrication in steel and glass, with open treads in hard wood, and has a delicacy and a lightness of touch, which echoes the way the house as a whole has been conceived.
The neighborhood of Caselas, Lisbon, was built in 1949 and designed by architect Antonio Couto Martins.
With a regular and orthogonal organization this neighborhood is characterized by the adaptation of its urban fabric to some pre-existing elements, such as the Church, which served as a reference to its main axes.
The Hello House is a renovation and extension of a Victorian shophouse to accomodate a family home and artist’s studio. The modest but beautiful front rooms were refreshed and its dysfunctional old back rooms demolished and replaced with new spaces more suitable for 21st century life.
