Résidence Belcourt in Québec, Canada by Atelier Pierre Thibault

Friday, December 9th, 2016

Article source: Atelier Pierre Thibault

The Residence Belcourt is a typical Canadian house built in 1974. Clients underwent major renovations in order to optimize the functionality of the residence while maximizing the entry of natural light. Only the overall volume, the exterior stone walls and the pool were kept from the original house. The project now shows a concept. The side walls integrate services and storage in order to free the heart of the ground floor. New living spaces are organized around a sculptural plywood staircase. The new organization of spaces promotes family life within large communicating areas. The addition of a pergola in cedar slats and a generous terrace at the rear allows to offer outdoor living spaces that extend to the garden and to facilitate access to the inner courtyard.

Situated in a dense pine forest, the hexagonal plot had no references to the choice of location for the construction. It was conditioned by ‘occupation zone’ defined by the Master Plan – a circle of 12.50 m radius centered at hexagon that defines the perimeter of the plot.

Blue Bottle Coffee Nakameguro Café in Tokyo, Japan by Jo Nagasaka/ Schemata Architects

Tuesday, December 6th, 2016

Article source: Jo Nagasaka/ Schemata Architects 

It was such a great honor for me to design the renovation of my favorite building that I used to see every day. About nine years ago, we had co-established a shared office HAPPA across the street from the building and relocated our former office there; we employed to observe the neighborhood through the glass and this building was my most favorite among others on the street.

Baufritz Haussicht in Erkheim, Germany by Studio Alfredo Häberli

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

Article source: Studio Alfredo Häberli 

Alfredo Haeberli:

I still have the copy of my letter, which I wrote in 2008 – and a copy of the woman’s magazine from back then. “Women changing the world” – I was so deeply impressed by it, I simply could not understand, that you wouldn’t respond in any way. Today we are strolling around the finished house, which we have developed together. Quite impressive, how this thing has taken speed.

Unique ‘Arts and Crafts’ facade for residential tower De Verkenner

Shifter in Saguramo, Georgia by Stipfold

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Article source: Stipfold

The hillside house for a large family is gracefully flattened out on the landscape. The facade is simultaneously minimalistic and massive, marking the building’s modest and strong presence in nature. The multilayered open space in the backside of the house brings an inevitable sense of unexpectedness. The terraces in the garden with lounge areas and The playground carry a cosy vibe.
