Juliette aux combles – Transforming an attic into a bookcase – “Nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed.”
In approaching this project, we studied the composition of the existing building and identified multiple layers added to one another over time. These additions had compressed the living space since the original construction dating back to 1880. Inside the attic, we found that the current flat roof was built on top of a former sloped roof togetherreaching a thickness of over five feet which was mixed in with layers of tar. Through a subtraction process and by replacing the existing structure with new joists, we gained 5 feet of space, therefore making up a 13 foot height on the third floor. The space of the new master bedroom and artist studio gained in natural light with the integration of a ribbon window where the attic was.

The Italian word “Baita” refers to a place that allows climbers to have a break and regain their strength. This café located in Vanke Lake Songhua Resort is appropriately denominated as “Baita Italia” due to its remarkable place at the right beginning of the town center of the resort facing the mountain and the ski tracks, and its role in the cultural communication between Vanke and Italy.

\”In 2013 Låda Cube set out to change how we use and think about our walls.
Fueled by our belief that traditional stick-built walls consume needless time, energy, and resources, we set out to develop a better technology. We couldn’t be more excited about the results!
We created a wall that is infinitely flexible and allows for rapid modifications of spaces, a wall that is transportable, a wall that is cheaper, and most importantly, a wall that is beautiful.

The project is a small marquee designed to improve the pedestrian access to an underground parking, located in the Plaza San Juan Bosco, in Pamplona. Originally, the access was exposed, and consisted of stairs accompanied by old metal railings. The commission, therefore, consisted on covering such stairs; and the execution budget was very small.

The project was prepared in 1999 and constructed in 2007. At the time of the design, regional plan regulations on building local style were strict and most of the architectural elements ere dictated. Working within these limitations, we had to take the Muğla residential style as reference, that was never applied within the Göcek area. The site plan was partially developed with HOK. Considering the land’s flat surface, high water table and existence of the marina in a short distance, formation of channels seemed to be evident during design process. The water channels, serves as a means a means of transport to the open sea and allows the cool breeze into the development while giving different vistas to the shore and the neighboring forest.
