This project for the renovation of an existing boathouse and new 600 sq.ft. second storey guest suite is located in the Muskoka Lakes region of Ontario.  Situated at the end of a narrow bay, the design of the new boathouse mediates between extended views out to the wide vista of the distant lake and the immediacy of the enclosed forested shoreline of the bay.  The design provides a lens for these varied views as well as a sheltering foil to the open lake breezes and water traffic.  The project called for the renovation of an existing two slip boathouse and the addition of a second storey guest suite and roof terrace.

Villa3s in Graz Geidorf, Austria by LOVE Architecture and Urbanism

 
February 10th, 2012 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: LOVE architecture and urbanism

A gorgeous property on the fringes of Graz Geidorf, a very limiting land-use plan and a very ambitious budget form the starting point for the planning of my own house. Simple yet complex; clear but also playful; light and optimistic; small yet also big. A place that is architecturally distinct, yet eminently livable; unconventional and unique, yet still functional for everyday living – these are the attributes of my family’s future home.

Villa VS in Aix-en-Provence, France by T3 architecture

Article source: T3 architecture

Located near Aix-en-Provence, in a rural area, this project plays with the typology of agricultural farm houses architecture. The clients’ brief was the refurbishing of this “mas provençal” facing an olive tree field. They were in demand of a strong contemporary element that could bring a totally new identity to the house. The architects therefore proposed to replace the former farmhouse part of the existing construction, which was slightly difficult to adapt because of its minor construction quality and it’s chaotic partition, by a new timber frame structure that will host a spacious living room and the “en suite” main bedroom. The preserved part of the existing construction being dedicated to the children and friend’s rooms.
