By • Sep 7, 2018

The Mirrorhouse is a private residence located in the Trousdale Estates of Beverly Hills, a city in Los Angeles County, California, in the United States. The home was designed by and completed in 2016, covering a total ground area of 8,000 square feet. It enjoys an incredible view of Downtown Los Angeles, as well as the Pacific Ocean.

Modern interior done in white

The challenge presented to XTEN Architecture was to create a simple, rational home that emphasized its connection with the surrounding landscape, all of this done in order to celebrate the unique lifestyle that Beverly Hills and Los Angeles have to offer.

Large kitchen-living room area with a view

The kitchen and living room are open and spacious, done in a stark white that enhances this sense of space, with accents done in neutral tones that play with contrast. These rooms open out to a terrace with a pool, and, beyond, the view of the city, creating a continuity and a dialogue between the interior and the exterior that is irresistible and exquisite.

Terrace with a pool

The entirety of the floor plan is developed around five volumes which enclose the private spaces of the house. Such an arrangement creates negative space, which in turn becomes the main living and circulating space, providing a free flowing travel route throughout the home, as well as views out to the exterior and the city.

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.

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.

Exterior view of the old building

Despite the small surface of the apartment, the high ceiling gives it a feeling of spaciousness. As if the challenge of an apartment of 44 square meters for two tenants was not enough, around 12 square meters are non-mobile shelter room walls. Therefore, it is important for the rest of the space to be as open as possible.

A built-in ladder in the kitchen cabinet allows easy access to the large storage space in the kitchen, as well as the cabinet on both sides.

In such a small apartment, every square meter counts. The tenants do not usually enjoy cooking while they are at home, but said that whenever they stay in this apartment, they intended to cook and spend time together while talking and enjoying each other’s company. Therefore, the moving wooden plate on the work surface of the kitchen allows more space to sit and more work space at the same time.

By • Aug 24, 2018

This discreet renovation of a 1950’s bungalow belonging to a family of 5 is located on the northern shore of Castlecrag in Australia and has an area of 170 square meters. The simple project has been under the direct supervision of the architectural firm , who have turned a mid-century residence into a spacious home, cozy and full of natural light.

Exterior view of the brick facade

Having previously lived in a large family home, customers were concerned about the “reduction.” However with some minimal modifications, the requirements could be accommodated within the existing building. The design focused on eliminating the unnecessary elements in order to determine a natural place for each space, while raising those functions and creating awareness and connection with the place.

The alteration focused on creating a large open space, housing, kitchen, living room and dining room, which uses key carpentry pieces to create different areas and implicit thresholds that define the lobby, the kitchen, the dining room, and the living room, the pantry, and the study.

The palette of materials is based on the natural environment of Castlecrag: a clean palette of white and gray, the irregular glaze of the ceramic tiles creates reflections, and the red brick recovered that borders the roof makes reference to the house and its surroundings.

The new architectural composition is highly efficient, dynamic but serene

The tree house is located on one side of a dike, surrounded by ancient bamboo forests, facing the old tea factory on the other side of a stream. Part of the terrace hangs over the stream, creating a sensation that the terrace is floating in the water. In addition, since the steel columns are curled up at various points on the ground to minimize the impact on the environment, there is more space available for ground activities.

Fantastic Remodeling of a Property Dating From 1936

By • Aug 22, 2018

This project, a remodeling of an old construction from 1936, was carried out in 2016 by the Spanish under the direction of its professionals Javier Pérez-and Fernando Aguarta García. It is located in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, on the beautiful island of Tenerife, in Spain. The property covers an area of 133 square meters.

Terrace with views
Large and bright terrace area

The design included a light metallic structure that would not increase the load on the roof too much; in addition, dry walls, pavements and partition walls were built, as well as a cover with prefabricated light panels. In the same way, the adaptation to the pre-existing networks suggested that the band that houses the toilets was located next to the courtyards, thus reducing the layout of the facilities and enabling a rational distribution. The solar route, on the other hand, motivated the provision of generous openings to the rising sun — protected by a lattice of aluminum slats as well as exterior shades of warm tones — illuminating the common spaces and the terrace with views of the city, the sea, and the Anaga massif at dawn.

Access from the terrace to the interior

In the end, the new volume looks out onto Robayna Street as a discreetly expressive visor, whose flight allows the efforts of the light structure to be balanced while being shown to the street as an addition that aspires to belong without stridency to the original building. It is a clean piece guided by the economy of means and the choice of a contained palette of materials.

A one-story building that surrounds a huge central courtyard, planned with natural light and ventilation in mind. The use of energy and environmental sustainability were definitely important bullet points, as well.

With the unique design and history of the house, the current architect’s goal was to retain as much of his heart and soul as possible while meeting the needs of the current owner. The new structures were designed to be independent of the original. Steel and wood were used everywhere, along with concrete finishes to match the existing one. As the original basement had moisture problems, it was opened and integrated into the central courtyard.
