Spazio Silos is an interesting example of architectural redevelopment, restoration and enhancement of a particular cultural heritage: a new reinterpretation of the industrial archeology through Enzo Berti designer’s eyes, his experience and his personal style.
The building is made up of two historical “silos” in the area between Venice and Padua, realized during the 40s for a furniture factory, and completely inserted in the ancient roman land “centuriation”.

The small house is situated by a lake in the Stockholm archipelago, on a site that in the early 1900s was inhabited by a gardener. Plants and paved walls that were then organised still remain to a large extent today. For the last 25 years another garden interested family have used the old existing house as a summer home. The family, consisting of mother and two daughters, has grown in recent years when the two daughters have formed families on their own. That in turn has made more space necessary. One sister has renovated an existing guest house, while the other sister decided to build a new small house, Summerhouse T, for her family consisting of two adults and two children. The family formulated a program that included a kitchen, bathroom, dining area, living room, four beds and room for storage.  While municipal constraints did not allow a building that exceeded 40 m2.

Juniper House in Gotland, Sweden by MURMAN ARKITEKTER AB

This house is more than a weekend cottage. This house is an experiment.

You approach it via a cul-de-sac that ends in a sheep fence towards the open moor.

There is a grove of high junipers and a couple of white plastered houses visible. Embedded in a glade 5 meters to the right lies Juniper House. The house is barely visible, like a mirror of its own surroundings.
