Rose Bay Apartments in Sydney, Australia by Hill Thalis Architecture + Urban Projects Pty Ltd

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

Article source: Hill Thalis Architecture

The Rose Bay Apartments project comprises 11 residential units, 2 shops and a basement carpark on a compact urban site.

The plan form of the building is a T form providing all units with cross ventilation. On each typical floor, two units face the street as a continuous street wall in accordance with Woollahra Council’s DCP for Rose Bay (also prepared by Hill Thalis). The upper levels have views towards the harbour and the leafy elevated outlook towards Vaucluse. Roof top terraces are provided to upper level apartments of the building. A third unit to the rear of the property is liberated from the property boundaries and shares no common walls with its neighbours – looking towards the extensive harbour and city views to the northwest.

Rosie House in Tokyo, Japan by ARTechnic architects

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

Article source: ARTechnic architects

“Overcome the disadvantage of the land condition, turn it into the beauty of the architecture”

When the client found this land, we were asked to give an advice.  It was a strip of pentagonal land facing west with only a pair of parallel boundary lines. Because of this land condition, it was valued lower, almost 30% larger than regular priced lands for the same cost.  Even though, the land was such an odd shape, we were sure that we could create a house with more freedom from the extra space by giving a careful attention to improve the land’s disadvantages such as an angle, orientation, height limitation and confined facade.  Therefore we suggested the client to go for it.

House Mosi in Johannesburg, South Africa by Nico van der Meulen Architects

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

Article source: Nico van der Meulen Architects

House Mosi was commissioned to Nico van der Meulen Architects with an explicit plan: the final product had to match the owner specifications. All in all, the architects had to create a single-storey home with an urban feel to substitute the 1950’s feel of the old house and convert it into a timeless modern space with a unique flow.

JPGN House in Brasília, Brazil by MGS – Macedo, Gomes & Sobreira

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

Article source: MGS – Macedo, Gomes & Sobreira

The owner of this house, at the South Lake residential district in Brasilia, had grown up on that same street. The window of his bedroom was opened to the view of the Paranoá Lake towards northwest, with the monumental zone of Brasília right at the opposite bank.  He had witnessed the evolution of that landscape, and intended to keep living together with it. The house was almost fully elevated on piloti, on the edge of the height allowed by urban regulations, opening the view above the neighbors’ roofs.

Ballyroan Parish Centre in Dublin, Ireland by Box Architecture

Friday, November 2nd, 2012

Article source: Box Architecture

The client, South Dublin County Council, approached our office to refurbish and extend the existing library of Marian Road in Ballyroan, Rathfarnham in 2006. The brief expanded and, as part of the project, we were asked to look at refurbishing the existing community centre, which was in need of upgrading to modern space and environmental standards. It became quite evident early on that the extent of area required for the pastoral element was too large and a separate building was required.

Sixty Colborne Presentation Centre in Toronto, Canada by Johnson Chou Inc.

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

Article source: Johnson Chou Inc.

Sixty Colborne is a 3,300 SF condominium presentation centre comprised of a sales area and a model suite created for Freed Developments and located in the St. Lawrence historical district of downtown Toronto.

Design Concept:

To create a building of paradoxes much like it’s site: a building of simple form juxtaposed against a context of a cacophony of form, detail and colour; to create a building passive by day and active at night; direct access from exterior yet complex interior movement and parti.

My Panda in Tokyo, Japan by Torafu Architects

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Article source: Torafu Architects

Located at the basement level of Shibuya’s PARCO Part 1 Building, we have designed the interior and exterior of the store for new fashion label ‘my panda’. From ‘Smiles’, the company which created brands such as ‘PASS THE BATON’ and ‘giraffe’, this label is based on a ‘two-tone’ theme. We wanted to design a store which could become iconic to the fashion label such that it may be easily recognized.

The Cabin French Alps in Menuires, France by H2o Architectes

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Article source: H2o Architectes

Our design team was invited to rethink a ski resort apartment in Menuires, France. Located at the far end of a building built in 1965, it has triple orientation that was not valued by the previous layout which was too segmented. The request was to realize the impossible : increase the living space without touching the structure, create 2 bathrooms instead of the one existing, preserve the number of beds, 8 beds in 55m2, all while maintaining separate circultaions for each.

Hard Werken in Kessel-lo, Belgium by i.s.m.architecten

Saturday, October 27th, 2012

Article source: i.s.m.architecten

In our opinion architecture is not neutral, it takes a clear position. She moves, surprises and is beautiful. In the creation of good architecture, the role of the client is not to be underestimated. They have to choose the right architect for the realization of their dream. A client that has utter confidence in their architect, as was the case, allows us to push the project further than the direct materialization of the design brief. A critical dialogue between client and architect is an ideal breeding ground for a beautiful project.

When the client approached Nico van der Meulen Architects, the brief presented was intended to alter and add to an existing 1950’s house and update its design.
