Doll’s House in Victoria, Australia by BKK Architects

 
July 16th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: BKK Architects

Dolls House is an idea about providing flexible, highly sustainable living that is responsive to its context and able to adapt to the changing needs of a family over a long life-span. The first known Doll’s house, originally called a ‘baby house’ in 1557 was a showcase for local creatives and craftspeople to display their wares. The Dolls House later became a play thing for children; a space of imagination. Shared ideas of creativity, craftsmanship, play and imagination underpin this house, whilst also mirroring the flexibility of the Doll’s house where a bedroom can become a living room or dining room by simply moving furniture or joinery. The new addition is largely made up of two spaces stacked upon each other, with no doors or walls, just furniture and joinery to divide space and imply use. The two levels of the house are treated quite distinctly; the lower sunk below grade and heavily grounded, whilst the upper is soaring into the treetops. The new addition frees up the plan of the old house where the former living and dining areas have become a flexible buffer space with an artist studio and playroom that place creativity and play at the centre of the home.

Sullivan Street Duplex in SoHo, New York City by Slade Architecture

 
July 16th, 2015 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Slade Architecture

Our goal in renovating this penthouse duplex for a young bachelor was to maximize the impact of the light and views that the penthouse floor-through configuration afforded. The existing apartment had terraces on both levels but the windows and interior partitions limited the impact of this exterior exposure on the interior spaces.

HOUSE 028 Renovation in Abano Terme, Italia by MIDE architetti

 
July 16th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source:  MIDE architetti 

The project involves the renovation and expansion of a single dwelling of the early 70 ‘s, located in a residential area in Abano Terme. The project site is spread over two floors above ground and it is faithful to the original plan involving four large rooms on each floor, distributed through a central corridor. The functional needs of the clients matched with the existing distribution, whereby the proposed project will preserve as much of the existing masonry as feasible, without subverting the original plans, and in turn resulting in an economically sustainable project. Important changes will mainly involve the ground floor, where the need to obtain a wide living area in a close relationship with the garden will require an expansion to the building. The facades will be reinterpreted by adding large openings toward the private garden which will subsequently provide additional natural lighting. On the ground floor, there are movements and community rooms such as the cloakroom, the living area consisting of living room and kitchen, pantry, bathroom, storeroom, laundry and garage. The latter, a volumetric block covered with aluminum slabs, plays an important role in the composition of the new facade characterized by brown-grey plaster. On the same floor, the living areas will be intimately involved with the garden through large openings, creating an ideal extension to the outside: a relaxing space for family use during sunny days. The upper floor will be utilized as a sleeping area, consisting of two single bedrooms, a bathroom and a bedroom with an adjoining bathroom and walk-in closet. The personality of the new building will be strongly reinvigorated by the choice of the materials adopted; the contrast between the rough grey-plastered wall surfaces and the elegant metallic surfaces adorned with a bronzed finishing touch.

Ecocapsule by Nice Architects Ltd

The first truly independent micro-home

Story of the Ecocapsule has begun in the 2008 when our architectural studio Nice architects participated in Andes Sprout Society idea competition to design small housing unit for artist. Ecocapsule v1 was bearing three pivotal design features: round shape to minimize energy losses, water collection capability and mobility. Design was not successful In the competition, but breaking point for the project was when inhabitat.com choose Ecocapsule to their selection of the most interesting picks from competition. Massive amount of inquiries persuaded us to develop this project further.  Unfortunately technology of 2008 was not ready for truly independent house.

Huber Music Room by WSDG

An inspirational view of the Pacific coastline melds with flawless acoustics to establish the ultimate creative environment for musician/businessman, Chris Huber’s personal studio.  “Music has always been an integral part of my family life,” Huber reveals.  “When we bought our home a few years ago I knew exactly where the studio would live.  Our primary aesthetic concern was to retain the panoramic ocean view through our ground floor windows. I researched studio designers and discovered Walters-Storyk Design Group-WSDG through their work on a Brazilian studio with a sweeping view into its live room through an enormous ‘Cinemascope-style’, control room window.”

Saúl Bistro, Pradera Concepcion in Guatemala by Taller KEN

 
July 15th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Taller KEN

For “Saúl Bistro Pradera Concepcion” we wanted to challenge this typology of the generic suburban shopping center. Because the project is located at a high elevation, on the road to El Salvador, the client wanted the cozy feeling of a mountain house. To achieve this, the project needed to be separated from the commercial center to no appear like a theme-restaurant.
