Renovation of an Atypical House to Reorganize its Spaces

By • Oct 1, 2018

, a La Mulatière-based French architectural firm, have designed this home — EDUT — in Caluire-et-Cuire, the fifth largest suburb of and commune of the Metropolis of Lyon in the Auvergne – Rhône – Alpes region in eastern France. The project was lead by the architect Steven Guigoz, and was completed in 2017.

Exterior view of the old construction

The motivation was to renovate an originally atypical three storey home by transforming its existing small living room into a large contemporary and minimalistic space. This took the re-organization of the living spaces, making the utmost use of the interior light. Additionally, the terrace became an extension of the living room.

Entrance with glass door

While the exterior is surrounded by lush vegetation and has a bit more of a rustic feel, the interior is strikingly modern by comparison, seeking a more minimalistic aesthetic and focusing on the play of contrast between black and white. Clear glass walls allow the living room, kitchen, and dining room to enjoy uninterrupted views of the exterior landscape. Through glass doors, residents and visitors alike can step out and enjoy a bit of fresh air from the terrace.

A glass ceiling allows light to flow into an underground office, austerely furnished with a small desk and chair, a small window looking out into the living room and other social areas.

By • Sep 28, 2018

House EKC, as this project is called, was designed by , an architectural firm based in Martigny, in the canton of Valais, in Switzerland. The project itself is located in Val Ferret, the name given to the two separate valleys, departing from the Col Ferret on the border between Italy and Switzerland, on the southern and eastern sides of the Mont Blanc Massif, in Switzerland.

The home was built to house a family of five consisting of a couple and their three children who live in the village of Orsières. Previously an old barn originating from the 1920s, the upper part of it was used to store hay, while the lower end served as a stable for goats, sheep, and other animals. The size of the barn, however, was not enough to house such a large family (five members), so Ralph Germann architectes added a contemporary wooden annex to the barn, which is connected by a gangway on two levels.

The interior was completely refurbished and refurnished with a reinforced concrete structure of walls and slabs in order to meet the seismic requirements of the Swiss region.

Its Wonderful Views are its Most Outstanding Point

By • Sep 21, 2018

In the “Region of the Lakes”, located on top of a mountain on the Peninsula of Lonconaos Lake, about fifteen kilometers from the city of Futaleufú, in the Chilean Patagonia, this small but charming cabin frames its main view towards the lake and everything else is forgotten before the wonderful views.

View of the cottage on the top of the mountain

It has 65 square meters of construction and was designed by the architectural firm Paul Steel Bouza Arquitecto in 2017.

The living room and the master bedroom are connected to a terrace above the lake, with a glass wall providing an absolute and free view. The restroom and other rooms are at the back of the house, which reduces the overall space space, creating an “A” form.

A backyard with an acrylic roof serves as access to the house. It is closed through a metal door that works in two ways: the first is to protect the house in periods of storms, and the second is to give privacy to the bathroom since it has an open window that leads directly to the lake.

The sloping roof rises to create a loft which is accessed by a retractable staircase, which frees up space in the small dwelling.

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.

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.

Angled volumes also have rounded edges to reduce their visual weight.

Modern living room in light colors

A large window at the end of the living room lets in plenty of natural light. The storage is hidden throughout the department and the lighting is embedded in several areas to avoid visual clutter. Bright glows of color and cured textual elements add interest to the minimalist design.
