This extension and remodeling of a Grade II listed Georgian town house by Belsize Architects rejects a traditional brick extension in favour of a more contemporary design, thereby providing greater interest and allowing the extension to read clearly as a separate yet sympathetic addition.

APARTMENT SP in Ljubljana, Slovenia by SADAR+VUGA

 
June 23rd, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: SADAR+VUGA

Apartment in the 19th century townhouse in Ljubljana is a place of opposites: it is both warm and cold, both soft and orthagonal. It is equally open and closed against its surroundings and both in contact and in conflict with it’s past. It is an interpolation of two different but visually connected ambients with contrasting identities and materialities: the loft and the salon.

The Ten at South Person in Raleigh, North Carolina by in situ studio

The Ten at South Person was designed for a vacant site in downtown Raleigh. The project is a new housing format for Raleigh – modern, affordable, and possessing row house DNA. The design maximizes square footage at low cost, builds from defining characteristics of a surrounding historic district, and creates a healthy streetscape via stoops and the play of materials and relief on the street facade. The units sold in only six days at a price that was the least expensive per-square-foot housing offered in downtown in years. Despite its modern form, the complex is nestled comfortably within the neighborhood.

Villa Hogebiezen in IJsselstein, The Netherlands by EVA architecten

 
June 23rd, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: EVA architecten

A contemporary addition between the original ribbon development. In the direct surroundings old farmhouses are alternated with houses from different periods that were built after the land consolidation. Since the various functions of contemporary houses are no longer in line with a characteristic farmhouse facade (wide front with residential function) this house has not been developed from this typology. We opted for the design of the roof shape to be positioned longitudinally along the house. This shape is derived from two monopitch roofs at which the lower point of articulation is elevated. In this way two domains are created on the upper floor, which gives the house a large degree of flexibility. Sleep – work combinations or parents’ – and children’s bedrooms can be combined in these two domains. Large voids create the connection between the two floors. In this way the roof shape is experienced in various places on the ground floor. The roof is covered with natural slates. Sharp folding lines provide the transitions of the different roof planes. To be able to feel the mass of the house we opted for a concealed gutter as a transition from roof plane to house front. The facade is made of a blended grey stone.

Los Feliz Residence in California by Surfacedesign, Inc

 
June 23rd, 2016 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Surfacedesign, Inc

The Dundee Residence landscape transforms a simple pool deck and poorly maintained hillside landscape into an exuberant space for living and entertaining, and ultimately a dynamic play space for a mother (and Hollywood stylist) and her young children.  The house was built speculatively in the 1990’s and designed to mimic the steep architectural pedigrees of its international style neighbors.  Dundee sits perched high in the hills with sweeping views of Downtown Los Angeles to the South and the chaparral hills of Griffith Park to the east.  Located in hills above the Los Feliz, the neighborhood is home to actors, rockstars and Hollywood elite and to some of LA’s most significant architecture, including Frank Llloyd Wright’s Ennis-Brown House and Richard Neutra’s Lovell Health House.
