Opening up a Federation Queen Anne heritage listed residence is the dream of many home owners on Sydney’s North Shore.

The northern suburbs on the Sydney harbourside, from North Sydney to Mosman were rapidly developed in the first two decades of the 1900s, thanks to the new ferry services and expansion of public transport links.

This work was made for the exhibition, “Measuring: This much, That much, How much?” held at 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT from February 20th to May 30th, 2015.

I designed this in collaboration with MUJI, using their first furniture product, the steel shelving unit.

First, I began the project by discussing the importance of this steel shelving unit with the designers at MUJI to study what this product meant for them.

Villa Saxe in Paris, France by Emmanuel COMBAREL Dominique MARREC Architectes (ECDM)

The design of our project was developed to focus on three strong intentions structured by the heirloom of this singular parcel.

Above all is the question of the garden, this protected and timeless area that we perceive, and that we will be able to make visible. This is not only to respect an urban rule by returning the same volume of soil-grown, but also to preserve the maximum of an atypical plant heritage, to free the ground as much as possible to maximize the garden, and finally to structure it in order to generate depths of field and gradations in the perception.

For this suburban home, Dan Brunn, AIA, principal of Dan Brunn Architecture, injected the feeling of openness and of continuum, which was of utmost importance to the clients. As a means to negate the claustrophobic spaces of their primary residence, the architect developed a language to express the free flowing nature of the design.

Traditional Patisserie with Urban Vibes in Bozen, Italy by noa* network of architecture

 
February 11th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: noa* network of architecture 

The owner Hannes Dollinger lived and worked for years in Vienna and fell in love with the tradition of the ‘Wiener Kaffeehaus’. Cosy spaces where you can enjoy coffee and pastry for hours, reading a newspaper and having a chat with the waiter, as you would in your own living room, were his idea of the new café. And in fact, the cosiness already starts from the doorsill. The entrance is formed by a group of vintage armchairs that create a sort of a living room and invite passing people to have a seat. In summer the facade is totally open and the chairs get part of the street and the city.
