Tunquén House in Valparaiso, Chile by MasFernandez arquitectos

Thinking about a second home, it is inevitable to imagine a place with special features, much more if it is facing the sea. The Elizabeth House, as we call it for a long time in honor of his owner, who is a single 50 years old mother, reflects very well the clarity, simplicity and honesty with which, in our view, should tackle these projects.

i.n.g in Toyota, Japan by Katsutoshi Sasaki + Associates

This is the project for two-family house by reconstruction. Every time I witnessed the demolition work before reconstruction, I’ve had some uncomfortable feelings by the view of vacant land. The old house is a building containing lots of thoughts and memories for the owner and it is also a part constituting the town-scape from the community viewpoint. Therefore, based on the idea that there should be a way to renew the house while keeping the old town-scape even in reconstruction project, I proposed a house with Japanese-style outlook to fit naturally into the existing fence and external garden.

Article source: ashton porter architects

Reorganisation of the ground floor layout of a two storey semi detached residential property and the replacing of a garden shed at the rear of the garden with a writing hut.

The house design was driven by the requirement for both clients to work from home and both have separate spaces. The connection between the house and the garden writing hut was therefore a key element of the project.
