Tusculum Street Residence in Sydney, Australia by Smart Design Studio (designed using Bentley Microstation)

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

Article source: Smart Design Studio

This exciting renovation and extension of a turn-of-the-century terrace house in Sydney’s Potts Point focuses on a grand and gracefully spiralling stair that forms the pivotal junction of the old and new parts of the house. The staircase, spanning the width of the building, features delicate fan-like steel treads cantilevered from the central steel post and winding their way past six split levels, offset between the old and new sides of the house. The stair was conceived as the element that grafts the contemporary and new minimal structure to the refined, trimmed and formal older portion of the dwelling.

Marine Parade Apartments in Maroubra, Australia by Smart Design Studio (designed using MicroStation)

Saturday, March 24th, 2012

Article source: Smart Design Studio

This building in Maroubra, Australia accommodates four luxury apartments- one per floor plus a carpark/ services level that is built into the hill. Maroubra has incredible natural beauty with its rocky cliffs, white beaches and crystal blue waters but the urban fabric is unconsidered, uninteresting and largely in decay. Smart Design Studio capitalised on this unique setting by creating a building that focused on the wonderful view from within and, through strong form, has created a handsome building in profile to enhance the urban fabric of this area.

University College Ostfold Halden in Halden, Norway by Reiulf Ramstad Architects (Designed using MicroStation)

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

Article source: Reiulf Ramstad Architects

The key notion of the architectural strategy is the location’s natural features and the use of a limited material palette. The project is situated in an old “culturscape” and special attention is paid to integrate it into its surroundings. The design is based on simple geometrical prisms, lines and slabs composed into a complex lay-out of rooms and functions. Critical functions and lines of communication are emphasized and the building expresses a balance of functional efficiency and open perspectives.

House in Kaimakli, Cyprus by Yiorgos Hadjichristou Architects (designed using Microstation)

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

Article source: Yiorgos Hadjichristou Architects

REFURBISHMENT OF A LISTED HOUSE IN KAIMAKLI, NICOSIA, CYPRUS

The refurbishment and the extension of the traditional house in Kaimakli is based on the main strategies of the bio-climatic approach, and especially on conditions that were developed through tradition : all the spaces enjoy south orientation with various ways of shading (including movable vegetation panel) and assure generous cross air ventilation. The vegetation and the reinforcement of the breezes through it, endorse the creation of a micro climate and micro-cosmos of the house.

Casa Del Pico in Spain by Ábaton Arquitectura (designed using Microstation)

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

Article source: Ábaton Arquitectura

Since the land was on a high slope it was necessary to build a two-story villa. The idea of two structures floating on rock was possible because of the granite on the land. The bottom of the swimming pool is irregular imitating the shape of the granite on which it stands. The access to the house through one of the sides discovers a huge glass window overlooking three outstanding olm oaks around which the house was designed. To one side there are the public areas such as living room, kitchen and to the other side there are the private areas – bedrooms, bathrooms- arranged in two floors.
