In opposition to many of the newer large-scale and complex projects  being built with generic construction materials in a nearby neighborhood, this project is a piece of smaller architecture, with a low profile. It is a more interpretive style that respects the urban form contextual of the neighbors. It has a simple and refined palette of high quality materials consisting of handmade bricks, walnut, plaster, and glass. In an urban environment without large dominant views towards the outside, the house turns towards the interior patio and the pool with a connection to nature focusing up in the sky. This concept is inspired by the exploration of modern artists in the connection of the sky, Earth, and proportion.

The challenge was to incorporate the new house into the existing natural landscape as much as possible. The design and concept consist of two main volumes: the main home – for the owners – and a small guest house. These two parts are connected with an open bridge, which becomes the assembly axis and the face of the house. The existing trees were also involved in the design.

A lot of attention has been devoted to complement the design with a subtle landscape, open fireplace, and wooden terraces, where you can relax listening to the sound of the water running nearby. As if that weren’t enough, you can also enjoy a the wonderful views the home has to offer. In the final result, the modern lines of the house are even more prominent and striking with a natural green environment.

The pine forests are on two sides of the lot. It was the customers’ desire to find an oasis in nature with a small river or stream, which became a specific task for the architects, because the flowing water divides the land into two parts.

Fantastic Remodeling that Connects the Interior with the Garden

By • Sep 11, 2018

This remodeling, which initially sought to create a connection between the interior of the house and the backyard, has been made by the architectural firm Michael Hennessey Architecture. It is located in the beautiful city of San Francisco, in the United States, and has a total area of 2787 square feet.

Interior connected to the garden area

In 2014, the young family that owns this ranch-style bungalow ed the architectural firm so that they could carry out the project. Several windows and very small doors were in front of the patio that prevented the desire of the parents to spend large amounts of time outdoors with their children, taking care of the garden, the henhouse, and the landscaping. The family sought to live perfectly between inside and outside.

Modern kitchen comprised of white and light brown wood

The proposed kitchen, the family room, the office, and the master bedroom were designed to open the house to the outdoors. A direct view from the kitchen, the living room, and the backyard allows the family to stay committed to each other throughout the day.

The natural daylight reaches deep into the existing house with large glass panels at the back of the lift, as well as more discreet skylights and windows with slots towards the center of the building. A deep projection on the back covers half the hard impact of the sun.

The backyard was designed as three specific zones: dining room / living room area, lawn / play area and orchard / chicken area.

Renovation of a Small Space to Convert it Into a Habitable Place

By • Sep 6, 2018

This renovation of a house designed for a couple and their two cats was carried out in a hutong – a type of narrow street or alley – in Beijing, China by the architect Daisuke Matsumoto of the architectural firm FESCH Beijing. The space covers an area of 36.7 square meters and was carried out in 2016. Formerly the place was divided to accommodate several families.

Small reception area

The modifications and extensions of the original buildings gradually occupied the space once it was made public, leaving only one passage. Entering from the northwest, the project is located in the southeast corner, after crossing the narrow passage.

Dining area and kitchen

In a space of only 19 square meters, the architect took care of the common problems of the area and its surroundings, such as ensuring ventilation and lighting, reducing the restlessness generated by the crowded environment.

The original roof was preserved, and the rest was eliminated. The north and south walls were opened, respectively, to ensure ventilation and lighting.

Spectacular Remodeling of a House that Was in a Neglected State

By • Sep 4, 2018

This remodeling is of an old house in Seoul, South Korea, that could not function in its entirety due to small leaks and cracks, both inside and outside; the result of carelessness. It was carried out by Lee Ju Young of the architectural firm G / O Architecture.

The large space of 421 square meters was remodeled in 2017 seeking to please the client as much as possible, who wanted a complete renovation where the atmosphere was warm and cozy and oozed a modern style.

It was a typical house in which they were mainly interested in the interior, whether they be as extravagant as marble imported from Italy or not, and had a fantasy of European-style decorations, fireplaces and large chandeliers. And so, they began by eliminating the false decorations that filled this house.

The method of separating spaces from blocked walls to open walls was changed.

In the living room, they installed a square wall with openings at different heights, in the corridor and on the second floor and changed the ceiling. In the room of the youngest son, they also created a cozy atmosphere. It is important to control the degree of privacy of a home to give its occupants safety and comfort.

Interior with concrete walls

The interior design is mostly minimalist, allowing the architectural elements — made out of concrete, wood, and metal — to speak for themselves, but it is nevertheless full of welcoming spaces that ensure that the structure feels like a family home.

A Modern House for a Young Couple and Their Adorable Pets

By • Aug 30, 2018

This property was designed for a young couple with 2 pet dogs, in the city of Dallas, Texas, by the local architecture firm , led by architectural professionals Braxton Werner and Paul Field. It is located in the exclusive Bluffview neighborhood. One of the necessary requirements was that the space needed to have a modern style, while staying within a moderate budget.

Covered and furnished terrace

The clients wanted large expanses of glass that would open the house to the outdoors, but they also wanted a sense of privacy, a challenging request given that the rectangular construction site was parallel to a busy street. In addition, for an optimal orientation of the sun, the architects wanted to open the west elevation facing the street.

The residence has three modules, each with a different function. The central module contains a kitchen, dining room, and living room equipped with polished concrete floors and wooden cabinets. A retractable glass wall allows the space to be completely open to the outside. To the north there is a two-story volume that houses private functions. A master suite and an office are on the ground floor, and a bedroom and media room are located on the second floor.

The third module, located to the south, contains a garage. A glass-walled lobby with a large front door connects the garage to the main living room.

View of the coast area

Local architecture firmwas tasked with designing Coastal Pavilions, a series of one-bedroom suites that offer a luxurious and immersive experience that is different from the resort’s. Working in conjunction with Tasmania’s Cordwell Lane builders, the architects have designed sustainable-minded pavilions that were prefabricated off-site for minimal impact on the site.

The nine structures take inspiration from their sublime surroundings with natural wood finishes, curved shapes, and full height windows that allow us to take in the outdoors.

The design was inspired by the fluidity and the layers of the coastal rock formations, the coloring of the rich orange lichen, and the shapes of the nearby bays. The exteriors are treated recessively so as not to compete with this beautiful landscape.

The fluid topography of the coast is repeated in the interior design with its flow of walls, surfaces, and carpentry.

Imposing Construction Full of Style and Comfort

By • Aug 24, 2018

This imposing and modern building of 697 square meters was designed by the in Poland, in 2016. Its architect, Robert Konieczny, and his team of professionals decided to adjust the functions organized by the customer and connect them: entrance, house, and marina. He presents us with the idea of “ribbon”, which spans the entire area. First, from the entrance like a road, then it twists and forms the roofs and walls of the house, wrapping its interior.
