The Screen in Bierbeek, Belgium by DMOA architects

Sunday, March 11th, 2018

Article source: DMOA architects

A beautiful plot with endless views… but unfortunately next to a truckers company. How to make the most of these two contradictory influences? Our concept: we placed a narrow, long and tall house on the far right of the parcel. The property itself acts as a screen to cover up the unsightly, noisy neighbour on the right. The right side of the house has a blind facade, while the other side opens freely towards a large, sunny garden, where there is little evidence left of the fleet and accompanying roar. Or how everything falls into place by an atypical choice of implantation and volume.

Marie’s Wardrobe in London, England by TSURUTA ARCHITECTS

Friday, March 9th, 2018


An impressive large staircase in a turn of the 20th century house made the circulation generous, light and airy, but its dominance compromised the entire layout. The challenge was to replace this once favoured staircase whilst enhancing this previous spacious quality.

Ensae Paristech Campus Paris-Saclay in France by CAB ARCHITECTES (CALORI AZIMI BOTINEAU)

Tuesday, February 27th, 2018


When we discovered the immense sky and the plateau devoid of physical constraints we sought to capture the landscape by a simple form and by an abstract architectural language.

The proximity of the site to the edge of the woodland led us intuitively to the primary material as it seemed necessary in this country-side site to place the building lightly on the ground. To achieve this we chose to define the project by a steel exoskeleton.

Article source: Simon Rastorguev

A new office of IT-company Bitrix 24 opened in Moscow.

The task from the client wasAutodesk: to make the project of the office as quickly as possible – for 2 weeks. We had no more than 2 months to implement the project. It was also necessary to keep open ceilings with visible communications. All the rest of the interior was planned to be made as economically as possible – walls for painting, matte-glass partitions, carpet covering on the floors.

Pharmaceutical HQ in Moscow, Russia by Architects of Invention

Sunday, February 11th, 2018

Article source: Architects of Invention

The building is located on a very tight site, surrounded by residential blocks, a music school and nursery in Moscow’s historic city centre, off Arbat Street, the main, pedestrianised shopping street which runs for almost one kilometre through the city.

AI’s work involved the complete demolition of an existing 4-storey office block, replacing it with a new 7-storey office building with a single level underground car park and public space at the base of the building.

Curtain Cottage in Carlton North, Australia by Apparte Studio

Friday, February 9th, 2018

Article source: Apparte Studio

Passive energy design

The narrow house faces north and the front living area becomes flooded with sunlight, penetrating deep into the hallway.

The raised cathedral ceiling draws up much of the hot air during occasional hot summer periods, leaving the lower areas of the house cooler.

The existing house had good thermal properties to begin with. Most of both party walls are shared with a neighbour and there is good cross-flow ventilation to release heat when the front and rear doors are opened.

The large skylight over the dining area to the south saves hours of artificial lighting each day.

Stack House in Minneapolis, Minnesota by Lazor Office

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018

Article source: Lazor Office 

The Stack House is essentially a stack of blocks. Solid blocks of private spaces are stacked in an open, laced pattern to form voids for shared living space. The blocks are positioned in response to the urban and natural setting in relation to the site. The result is an open, two-story void of shared space that is simultaneously protected for privacy and immersed in its natural surroundings. Contrasting materials express this stacking and shifting on the exterior. Inside, the blocks are carefully carved with curves and surfaced in white oak to shape more intimate spaces to join a family together to share a meal, to recline, read and take in the majestic oak outside, or to play the piano and fill the void with music.
