The upcoming arrival of the Grand Paris Express BVC (Bry-Villiers-Champigny) train station made it possible to create a transport link in eastern Paris. Perfectly connected to the metropolitan networks, the ZAC Marne-Europe and Boutareines urban project possesses several advantages that will help create a dynamic economic hub and a pleasant living area on the territory of the Marne meander.

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

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.

A Raumplan house in MADRID, Spain by ESTUDIO ARQUITECTURA CAMPO BAEZA

 
February 11th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: ESTUDIO ARQUITECTURA CAMPO BAEZA 

The house is located on a sloping plot with a landscape of distant horizon none other than Madrid’s western mountain range viewed from Camarines. At ground level it doesn’t appear to be anything special, but as we go up we feast our eyes on a panoramic view of the urban landscape of the east of Madrid. From the four towers to the left to the Madrid tower to the right. Beautiful, and curious also.  Logically the more public parts of the house will be at the upper levels to frame and enjoy the stunning views.

COURTYARD in Vienna, Austria by heri&salli

 
February 10th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: heri&salli

The architectural studio heri&salli created an artificial landscape broken up into fragments for a courtyard of a private builder.

Some spaces are not made for beeing filled with nature. There is few light, the air is bad, the room by itself is     narrow and uncomfortable. Like in the case of a viennese building, dating back to the late nineteenth century, a very small and narrow courtyard served as ventilation for two vertically aranged wet areas. The quality is only functional, there is no added value.

Roncesvalles Accessible House in Toronto, Canada by Solares Architecture

 
February 10th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Solares Architecture

In 2013, a couple in their 50s, came to Solares Architecture with an important request – to transform their 1911 Toronto semi-detached home into a beautiful, modern, and, most importantly, accessible house.

In 2006, the husband and father of the household had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and was soon in need of a mobility device. Once the family began looking into buying an accessible home, they realized how few there were on the market. Usually, accessible houses are built-as-needed, and the option of buying one is hugely expensive. Even a bungalow would need major renovation work to become fully accessible. After assessing these costs, the family decided to instead renovate their existing home, bought in 1989.
