In a nutshell

Mills is an extension to a one level weatherboard terrace in Melbourne. The original facade and front 2 rooms of the terrace remain. One of those rooms has been altered to incorporate a study and a bathroom. A large lightwell separates the original structure from the new extension. The extension has two bedrooms and a bathroom above an open kitchen, living, dining space.

Mills is a complex home, full of ideas, however there are 2 core elements.

  1. The floor is a giant toy box.
  2. The rear facade filters and softens the strong sunlight that had previously dominated the backyard.

K.I.S.S. – Residential and Commercial Development in Zurich, Switzerland by Evolution Design AG

Wednesday, December 16th, 2015

Article source: Evolution Design AG

The Swiss architecture and design practice Evolution Design, in close collaboration with the client Swiss Life, created 46 individual 2.5-4.5 room maisonettes and flats with a unique concept.

The aim was to develop flats, which would go beyond the functionality and offer an ideal added value as well as have their own identity. This approach responds to the increasing need of individuality and plurality in our current society. Therefore the development of KISS’s design put the future tenant and his personal lifestyle at the centre of its thinking.
