Designing he Tokyo office of multinational recruitment specialists CDS was an opportunity to renew and maximize the value of their existing two-story premises. After appraising a full range of space use options, BAKOKO transformed the second floor into an efficient and modern workplace with a sleek and attractive facility for meetings and interviews below. The project was phased across the various floors of the building to mitigate disruption to the company’s day-to-day operations.

Stoneridge in Chapel Hill, North Carolina by In situ studio

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

Article source: In situ studio 

Our clients approached us to substantially renovate and make an addition to an existing Deck House north of Chapel Hill. The original house was a 1986 replica of a sixties-era Deck House. When our clients approached us, they had not yet purchased the property. Our first effort was to help them imagine the potential of improving the house. After a successful feasibility study, they purchased the home in December 2010.

The Chasen Residence is in a hip and growing, yet historic, neighborhood several blocks east of downtown Raleigh. Representing a new house type in Raleigh, this house is affordable, small, modern and urban. The efficient plan confines the entries, stairs, hallway, kitchen, and half bath to one side of the house, opening up the rest of the space for living.

Telegraph Hill Addition in San Francisco, California by Michael Hennessey Architecture

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

Article source: Michael Hennessey Architecture

This project renovates an existing two unit, three story residence that was originally built in 1907 on Telegraph Hill in San Francisco. The challenge of the project was determining the relationship of the fourth story and roof deck addition to the historic structure below. The resulting approach was to provide cement board panels at the addition creating a subtle material shift between new and old. The use of a consistent dark grey color visually unifies the addition with the existing form.

Low Energy Bamboo House in Rotselaar, Belgium by AST 77 Architecten

Friday, January 11th, 2013

Article source: AST 77 Architecten

The narrow sloping and afforested site, south faced towards the Beukenlaan, is not that typical Flanders plot. In the past the neighbourhood seems to have been a residential recreation zone, where Belgians used to build their individual summer houses. When asked to build a new spacious residence on this particular site, AST77 was confronted with a bungalow and extension.
