Spectacular Construction with Elegant and Welcoming Interiors

By • Aug 2, 2018

The main idea of this project was to preserve the original nature of the land as much as possible, which included pre-existing topography and stones, creating a minimum occupation house. We look for a better relationship between landscape and architecture.

Aerial view of the magnificent construction

This project had to be placed in a lot that was somewhat far from the bay. However, it had a magnificent view, encouraging the client to invest in that particular space. Due to the construction of the neighbor’s house, that view was partially lost. The first wish was to recover it. The second desire was to build a contemporary house, with integrated spaces, aligning design and style with efficient technologies.

The objective was to combine passive strategies with new technological systems to have a comfortable and energy-efficient home. To preserve the landscape, the house was suspended, leaving most of the land as a garden. This privileged position on the main floor allowed a great view of the entire North Bay and even the center of the city.

The owner’s request was simple: a four-bedroom vacation home with an indoor pool. The architect organized the program in three blocks of land, which were sometimes connected with internal / external circulations, in a conception that spreads the constructions throughout the land. This was done in an attempt to take advantage of the exuberant landscape of the surroundings in the best possible way.

At the entrance of the residence there is a rectilinear pavilion, which houses rooms, a work-shop and a garage, as well as a home theater.

On a lower level of the dining room / living room area, making the most of the sloped ground, is the heated indoor pool, which is bathed in natural light through the sheds on its roof.

Magnificent Remodeling of a House in Australia

By • Jul 31, 2018

High ceilings through which the natural light filters in, illuminating the interior spaces, is the first thing you will notice in this house, which was designed by the , and which is located in the western suburb of Enmore, Australia.

Main entrance showing original details

This modest and semi-detached house was designed in 2018 and has an area of 160 square meters.

Its design was inspired by the lofts and industrial warehouses of New York City, and the centerpiece is a six-meter vacuum with a large window facing north to capture the best of light and give the house a really amazing factor, with a feeling of space seldom achieved.

Spacious interior filled with natural light
Predominantly white interior

Previously, the back of this home consisted of a series of  small spaces that included a kitchen, a dining room and a laundry room, which restricted access to the back garden. Being oriented to the south, the spaces lacked natural light, which results in artificial lighting used most of the day. The renovation summary included a large and bright space that includes a loft parent retreat, a well-planned kitchen and a family area that flows into the outer space. The extension also needed to be linked to the original house but not imitate it.

Mi Casa, a Project in Which an Architect Designs for Another Architect

By • Jul 30, 2018

This project, carried out by under the direction of Valéria Gontijo, Isabela Moura and Isabela Valença, was divided by the dichotomy between the enthusiasm and the objectivity of the creative process. Designing for an architect, by architects, was and always will be a challenge, since they seek to create a practical, functional and timeless home.

Spacious and well-kept gardens

Located in Brasília, Brazil and with an area of 890 square meters, the studio sought an architecture that reflected personal taste but also the desire to simplify the lives of its inhabitants.

Gardens with trees

Clear volumes and pure geometries gave the design group rationality and harmony. The house was distributed in three blocks: function, connection and permanence. In addition, the consistent application of concrete and wood created harmony, as this uniform materiality creates a sense of integration.

The interior design is marked by personal choices (antiques, pieces chosen during trips, family art). The search for each piece, each painting and adornment gives the project a rare and important uniqueness.

It is a seemingly simple house, but it is one that carries a history full of challenges and efforts, right from its conception, as demonstrated by the carefully chosen lighting design, the effort in the execution of the walls, the mixture of concrete formed in a board, and the stroke of a client-architect.

Spectacular House with Open Spaces that Invite Nature In

By • Jul 27, 2018

This wonderful house with open spaces was designed by the architect Otto Felix of the in conjunction with interior designer Tici Andriani. It is located in the city of Joaquim Egídio, Brazil.

Fantastic exterior that blends with the interior

The project was carried out in 2016 and has an area of 410 square meters. The main intention of the project was to incorporate the external spaces in the social spaces of the house, allowing nature to enter areas of the house. To allow this integration between spaces without losing privacy in the most intimate areas of the house, the main divisions between the spaces were made through folding wooden doors. In this way, we have the option to integrate these spaces when we so wish.

Interior view from the outside

The most important part of the project is the volume that corresponds to the social areas of the house with the Gourmet, Living and Dining area. This environment is surrounded by glass panels that open completely, freeing the passage of natural light and ventilation, creating a fluid and contemporary atmosphere.

Interior full of light and comfort

The residence also has a kitchen, dining room, TV room, master suite, guest suite and service area, distributed within a private block in the shape of an “L”, which opens outwards through the wooden folding doors.

Marvelous Transformation of a Twentieth Century Building in Valencia, Spain

By • Jul 27, 2018

Located in an apartment unit in a building dating back to the early twentieth century in the heart of the beautiful city of Valencia in Spain, this apartment presented a challenge during its renovation. Heading the project was the architectural , which focused on the idea of creating modern living spaces that left the existing structure almost intact.

View of the small but comfortable lounge

After many years in a state of neglect, the apartment was an empty shell when it was bought by the client, creating numerous opportunities but also challenges for the design team.

Kitchen with aged brick walls

Space flows constantly from one area to another, with the separation between night and day areas provided by two tall wooden elements. These custom-designed items also contain the bedroom cabinets and three sets of doors that allow varying degrees of privacy.

The height of the roof was also considered a particularly valuable element in the renovation. The structure of the roof was restored and maintained completely exposed; no element of the new design comes into with it, which underlines the respect for the past and also allows us to perceive the full feeling of space and volume of the apartment.

By adding only new essential features, the “wounds” and layers of transformations over the years were carefully preserved and displayed to improve the sense of continuity with the history of the building.

Elegant Villa in the Heart of the City but Surrounded by Large Gardens

By • Jul 24, 2018

When setting one’s eyes upon this house for the first time, no one would imagine that it is in the center of the city. Its fabulous gardens give the feeling of being in a park area, and that is part of its charms.

View of the house and its gardens

Designed in the year 2016 by the architect Steven De Jaeghere of the architectural firm Architectuuratelier De Jaeghere, this house has 360 square meters and is located in West Flanders, Belgium.

House surrounded by beautiful green gardens

The new villa is built in the same place as the previous house. At an urban level, the same volume was requested as the demolished villa: a ground floor with a gabled roof. We have optimized this precondition for a linear and thin volume with a gable roof that responds to the maximum to its environment. The result is a volume of recognizable type with a refined minimalist composition of white walls and deeper dark exterior carpentry.

Front view with glass walls

The façade has a fairly closed character and the easily interpretable architecture takes the visitor to the covered entrance. Once inside, the visitor quickly faces the view through the long glass façade. The rhythm of the distribution of the glass and the columns give the impression of a gallery.

The ground floor combines several functions to ensure optimal interaction with the environment: covered terrace, kitchen, living room, study and bedroom.

The project was carried out by the , having as its focal point the idea of an architecture based on the landscape and trying to create a group of buildings that appear as part of the earth itself, and that sometimes disappear within her, while at other times they emerge from her. The buildings are located on different levels of the earth. Each accommodates different functions, a characteristic typical of traditional Balinese architecture. Intermediate spaces and small gardens are the result of the rotation of the volumes on the ground and offer uninterrupted views of the forest.

After its Remodeling this Floor Shows Modern Environments and Full of Natural Light

By • Jul 19, 2018

This 110-square-meter apartment, designed by architects Ashot Snkhchyan, Armine Snkhchyan and Hayk Zalibekyan, working for the , in 2018, is located in the lively neighborhood of Yerevan – Cascade, Armenia. It is a firmly neoclassical building from a decidedly Stalinist era.

View of the social areas of the apartment

The first floor is strangely small since it occupies only half of the original apartment that was divided into two parts. There is only the entrance area, the bathroom and the bedroom, which creates a kind of inverted functional scheme, where the active part of the apartment is on the top floor, under the sloping roof. A small balcony of the room is the only point that overlooks the Cascade, where during the warm days there are many open-air concerts. The client wanted a room that could be easily prepared in order to accommodate friends and enjoy the concerts.

Dining room sharing space

The second floor consists of three parts: the main “public space”, the terrace and a room that has a mood completely different from the rest of the apartment. It houses an art collection, TV, and a poker table, as well as many antique rugs on the floor and the room also serves as a guest bedroom. One of the main ideas of the project was to make it possible to merge the terrace, the public space and the room into a space, to create many use scenarios.

The cement floor, the plywood and the bright colors are the main accents of this project.
