Villa Marichulegui in San Sebastián, Spain by Estudio Beldarrain

Monday, January 11th, 2016

Article source: Estudio Beldarrain

The good orientation and the view across the city of San Sebastian make Marichulegui villa a privileged place to live.

The house places, almost instinctively, the main spaces oriented diagonally looking for the sights to the Concha bay which are encased between two neighbour villages. To place the maximum possible number of spaces whit this condition, leads to group, apparently in a disordered way, tightening in the narrow front of the plot, as if they were the heads of a children group that who want to look through a little window at the same time. So, the interior space keeping its fluid and unitary condition, creates various areas where the nearest references disappeared in favour of the far sight.

Millions of people visiting the shopping center annually will be able to enjoy a variety of plays, while the restaurants cater for intermissions and the hotel offers accommodation.

Lafayette Custom Mid-Century Modern Remodel in California by Klopf Architecture

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

Article source: Klopf Architecture

The owners of this property had been away from the Bay Area for many years, and looked forward to returning to an elegant mid-century modern house. The one they bought was anything but that. Faced with a “remuddled” kitchen from one decade, a haphazard bedroom / family room addition from another, and an otherwise disjointed and generally run-down mid-century modern house, the owners asked Klopf Architecture and Envision Landscape Studio to re-imagine this house and property as a unified, flowing, sophisticated, warm, modern indoor / outdoor living space for a family of five.
