This renovation is in Megalochori, an introverted and quiet village in Santorini. Dealing with a preexisting house, we wanted Villa Anemolia to reach a level of heightened simplicity. The three vaulted rooms were preserved with minimum alterations. All previous furniture was removed -we chose built-in beds, wardrobes that merge with the walls and wooden sofa beds that flank the living area.

For architects, designing a house is an adventure, but reality is often not as easy as foreseen. The site is complicated, the neighbours are unhappy, the unforeseen factors are really not foreseen, construction work is not as fast as planned, the ecological goals are difficult to reach, and the contractors are not as qualified as specified, and so on – the list is long. In this situation, the architect will be the arbitrator and the ground-breaker. In the end, the construction seems simple and natural.

Traditional Japanese painting artist, Kaii Higashiyama(1909-99) once mentioned that he was awakened to a landscape painting by the majestic ravine scenary of this site-this cottage is sitting on the slope looking down this ravine.

The construction of this characteristic villa in the forests around Naarden was finished recently. DENOLDERVLEUGELS is responsible for the design of the villa as well as the interior design and the garden design.
The main building has two levels and a thatched roof. The facade is layered by a plinth of masonry, a stucco midsection and a channel siding wooden top. The colour pallet is natural with a dark grey tone as contrast for the wooden window frames.

Close and compact are the residences lined up along the waterside of Grote Rieteiland, an artificial island in Amsterdams hip neighbourhood Ijburg.
Within a strict and complex set of urban rules pasel.kuenzel architects succeeded to develop a plain and sober urban villa that is unique in its reduced design and compelling in its materialisation and level of detailing.

CONTEMPORARY REFUGE – Investigating the relationship between freedom of architectural expression and its limit, beyond which it expires in the style and in the arbitrariness, the project aims to create a living environment rich and free in its use, seamless continuity between the exterior and interior spaces characterized by fluidity and by the lack of a functional purpose rigid but flexible and interesting.

The villa is built in an angular shape on a 1250 m2 land with old trees on the outskirts of Berlin. The new villa is attached to an existing weekend house but there is no functional connection, only to make the most of the landscape garden where birds, squirrels and hedgehogs live. Sometimes a fox from the near forest is looking around the corner.

A site bounded by other dwellings necessitated a villa concept designed with privacy in mind.
Angular, modernist geometry interprets the sense of protection given by a castle; monumental from the outside, but opening up into private internal courtyards and light-filled living spaces once within.
