Monolith House in Victoria, Australia by Rara Architecture

Thursday, November 10th, 2016

Article source: Rara Architecture

Our mission was to reinstate the old home’s glory through highlighting it’s simplistic characteristics and its overall form. We stripped it right back to a neutral state. The height of the rear addition had the potential to dwarf the original heritage home, so, sympathetically, we mimicked the roof angle, but didn’t hide it. Nothing about the addition is ‘trying to hide’ anything. The old building transitions smoothly to the new, visually and emotionally, both internally and externally – the old floorboards transition to a new polished concrete slab, the old weatherboards transition to a perforated brick wall (outlining the central Zen garden) and then again to a solid brick wall. The addition, which can be enjoyed from the rear lanes and from within the property stands proud, like the existing Edwardian; it stands high, and strong without any exaggeration or excess, it is brutal, minimal and statuesque: a monolith.

ANI VILLAS in Anguilla, British West Indies by Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership

Friday, November 4th, 2016

Article source: Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership

Ani Villas, two modern luxury villas of 3,000-4,000 square feet each, reside on a 1 ½ acre plot that slopes up to a sheer, stone promontory, overlooking Little Bay to the west on Anguilla’s north coast.  They include soaring indoor-outdoor living spaces with breathtaking views of the sea and the sky.  Each villa has four bedrooms with a detached office/guest area, and site amenities include a tennis court, a viewing pavilion and a cliff-top pool and deck area.  The white, modern structures – a series of stacked rectangular layers, forming subtly ascending levels and varying sized balconies and infilled with glass – are like a beacon atop the cliff and position themselves within the tradition of tropical modern architecture.

Eaton Mews North in London, England by Roselind Wilson Design

Friday, November 4th, 2016

Article source: Roselind Wilson Design

Eaton Mews North is a 1,700 square foot mews house located in Belgravia and arranged over four floors. Roselind Wilson Design was appointed as the interior architect to redevelop the structural interior layouts, furniture layouts and design of the kitchen, bathrooms and all interior finishes and details including doors, skirtings, joinery, architectural and decorative lighting, the staircase and all wall finishes. In keeping with the client’s brief to develop something that is unique, the look is undoubtedly layered with focus on textured fabrics and finishes and the striking use of battered and aged bronzes with bleached floors and textured timbers set against polished and honed marbles with exquisite veining and textured tiles with understated wall papers to create a subtle sense of glamour. The palette was very textural with bronzes, beiges, taupes and chocolates being the foundation colours with slight accents of green tones. The use of these tones allows for a calming sense of luxury with no brutal features that dominate the space.

Belsize Park in North West London, England by Roselind Wilson Design

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

Article source: Roselind Wilson Design

Roselind Wilson Design was appointed to carry out the design and complete refurbishment of this 2138 square foot duplex apartment in Belsize Park, North West London. As a blank canvas, the property already demonstrated a spectacular foundation from which to start; with its extraordinary high ceilings, curved walls and door to the Drawing Room, elaborate original cornicing and enormous windows flooding the rooms with light. This stunning backdrop coupled with the client’s international influences, allowed Roselind Wilson Design to produce a stunning architectural space; modern yet classic and with a focus on rich texture and ambient lighting. Through the use of raw and textured timbers, bronze, antiqued brass and copper, marbles and a monochromatic palette a truly beautiful and welcoming space was created for the client to call home.

The 4th Gymnasium in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by Paul de Ruiter Architects

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

Article source: Paul de Ruiter Architects 

In the first energy-neutral district of Amsterdam, the Houthavens, we designed the 4th Gymnasium. An energy-neutral secondary school that accommodates about 800 students. The school functions as the entrance of the new district. The Houthavens had an industrial role for years and will transform into a vibrant district with several islands in the upcoming years. A great variety of buildings and residents will take their place here. The 4th Gymnasium serves as a herald for the further developments of this area.

Elgtårn (Moose tower) in Espedalen, Norway by RAM Arkitektur AS

Saturday, October 29th, 2016

Article source: RAM Arkitektur AS

Espedalen is a valley situated in inland Norway to the east of Jotumheimen national park. The valley is home to the largest moose migration route in Europe. RAM Arkitektur was initially approached by the local community to suggest five architectural interventions in the region, with the aim of boosting tourism within the area. Momentum quickly built around and early sketch for a moose-viewing tower, with basic overnight accommodation for six people, located on public forestry land, and in the heart of the migration route.

Between Land and Sky home in Beit Zayit, Israel by Joel Jospe – Architects

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Article source: Joel Jospe – Architects

When I first saw the lot, the steep slope overlooking the Jerusalem neighborhood of Ein Karem, I wanted to do one thing only – to keep walking forward, hover in the air above the canyon, quietly observing the landscape visible in every direction. This was the primary motivation during planning. I did not give up this desire, or the opportunity inherent in it, and have given it to the owners.
