Villa Inga in Bratislava, Slovakia by ARCHITEKTI ŠEBO LICHÝ

This is how the architects live. House of Slovak architect Igor Lichý is the emanation of his idea of the perfect living.

Approach to the creation

Despite the fact that many architects understand their houses as a manifesto of their ideas about architecture and they are trying to implement everything they did not pass by their clients, architect Igor Lichý chose a rather conservative approach. An important criterion was the timelessness. This was reflected in the “Modernistic” design, which he hopes will be actual in several years. Another criterion was the constructional simplicity. This resulted in simple shapes without complicated details. They used classic materials with an emphasis on durability, as burnt brick, mineral wool and minimum of plasterboard. Great emphasis was placed on the functionality so that house can adapt to any changes in the family. On the ground floor he created a guest room with barrier free access and contact with the garden, which may in the future serve as a separate dwelling unit for either parent.

Bazillion in Vilnius, Lithuania by YCL studio

 
June 23rd, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: YCL studio

Old Town nooks, unexpected views, Basilian street incites for mystics and a kind of monastery austerity. The space is shared among two moods: timeless clay coolness in twilight and monochrome play of light. In the evening, the mystical hearth fire dissolves all mood contrasts and invites to rest.

Wings in Dubrovnik, Croatia by AVA – Andrea Vattovani Architecture

 
June 23rd, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: AVA – Andrea Vattovani Architecture

This project was commissioned to us as a study by a Russian entrepreneur who worked in several countries but liked to relax in on the Adriatic see. Because of his good relationship with Austrians he decided to stay and now he is located in Vienna. Beneath his economic success, he is a man with many interests, supporter of the fine arts, especially classical music and contemporary architecture, very athletic, and very interested in technical matters. But of course the most important part of his life is his family, so he tries to spend as much time as possible with his wife and his two children. Because of his interest in architecture he came across to some of our designs in magazines and internet. He was very interested in the project we did for the Gösta Serlachius Fine Arts Foundation in Mannta, Finlanand he contacted us with the purpose of developing something on the same architectural language. He was right away impressed with the way we merge conceptual ideas into an architectural design.  After numerous talks about architectural theories and the exchange of several ideas and opinions, we were offered to create a study for a private mansion for him and his family.

Article source: Antonini Darmon architectes

The project B5 Boulogne is part of the urban development zone called Seguin Rives de Seine near Paris. This area was formerly home to the monumental Renault factories. As a result of the delocalization of these factories, a surface of 74 hectares has been liberated. This new area named “Macrolot B5” has been divided into seven smaller blocks distributed around a large urban garden. Seven architects were selected to design seven different buildings, organized by an urban coordinator in charge of the Macrolot B5.

Article source: Goodfellow Communications

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.
