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

Article source: 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.

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.

In a nutshell

She’s a senior executive and now a new mum. For her and her newborn baby she wanted a light-filled home that could hide the mess. We gave her a floor that was a giant toy-box.

The what

Mills is an extension to a one level weatherboard terrace in Melbourne. The original facade and front 2 rooms of the terrace remain. One of those rooms has been altered to incorporate a study and a bathroom. A large lightwell separates the original structure from the new extension. The extension has two bedrooms and a bathroom above an open kitchen, living, dining space.

Mills is a complex home, full of ideas, however there are 2 core elements.

  1. The floor is a giant toy box.
  2. The rear facade filters and softens the strong sunlight that had previously dominated the backyard.

Palo Alto Eichler Remodel in CA by Klopf Architecture

 
February 11th, 2016 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Klopf Architecture 

Klopf Architecture updated a classic Eichler indoor-outdoor home to better suit the needs of a very busy family. The owners have two rather young kids and are also professionals with unpredictable, busy schedules. The house also had to accommodate the needs of two live-in nannies who cover for the parents when they’re indisposed. With those considerations in mind, the owners selected this house because it was larger than typical Eichlers because past additions had been already been made to the house. However, at the time of purchase the house was in poor condition and needed a complete gut remodel including all new roof, mechanical systems, and electrical, the replacement of dry-rotted siding and framing, some layout changes, and all new finishes. The house is super-insulated and has no need of air-conditioning.
