Remodeling – Extension of an Old Building in Belgrad, Serbia

By • Jun 25, 2018

This old building, located in Leopoldova kapija, Beograd, Serbia, was remodeled in order to obtain two extra duplexes. To this end, the architectural professionals in charge of the project, Danilo Nedeljkovic and Ela Nesic, built a new facade in a modern style that contrasts with the old construction, as an extension to the existing one to create the new volume.

Modern interior full of natural light

The work was carried out in 2018 and has an area of 300 square meters. The building and its interiors receive little natural light during the day due to its North orientation. The new glass facade also made the interior space of the new volume have much more natural light and look much brighter and more cheerful than the lower masonry floors.

By introducing the glass wall in the street facade, the principle of erasing the interior and exterior limits and the dematerialization of the new volume has also been achieved. The segments of the facade of the painted yellow glass were introduced to revive and refresh the glass surface of the new volume, as well as to make a visual connection with some elements of the previous facade.

The interior space is designed to have a multipurpose use. Currently, the duplexes have a commercial purpose, but their organization could easily be transformed into classic apartments.

Shared House in the Middle of the City with Open Spaces

By • Jun 13, 2018

The team at the architectural firm Swing, made up of the architects Dai Kanayama and Ryusuk Anezaki, designed this project in 2018. It covers a total ground area of 146 square meters, and is located in the city of Osaka, in Japan. With this project, the main objective was to figure out how one could create an open space that would be nevertheless colored by daily landscapes, all of it covering an area under 150 square meters. One of the most important elements of shared house projects is how to achieve spaces that cannot be had in a studio apartment, so the focus of the height of each room was taken into consideration, as well as the intent to make the most of its space.

The shared house should be a happy and welcoming space for the enjoyment of everyday life, where the “ordinary and extraordinary” are mixed in that space with “individual and common” characteristics.

Its designers were responsible for maintaining an adequate height for each space, taking into account the balance between adequate space for the rooms and an open feeling for the shared living room. The look through the mezzanine to the “borrowed landscape” of the trees that line the street from the window ensures the feeling of spaciousness even within the high-density city.

By • Jun 12, 2018

This wonderful apartment is located on the 29th floor of a tall building located in the heart of the city of Austin, Texas, in the United States. Its position has the advantage of offering simply incredible views of the Texan city, especially if you happen to have floor to ceiling glass walls. The architectural firm Furman + Keil Architects was commissioned to carry out this project covering a total ground area of 3200 square feet in 2015. The W Residence, the name given to the project, overlooks Lake Lady Bird.

Inspired by the work of Italian architect Carlo Scarpa, the team used a series of screens and floating roofs to subtly define finely designed spaces within the confines of the building’s concrete frame.

The inherently compressed section of the single floor was reimagined with layers and reliefs, and the design was changed from a one floor space to a series of more intimate and highly composite spaces.

The precise details and the extraordinary craftsmanship in waxed steel, patinated brass, plaster, travertine and various woods create a warm and elegant space in which to take refuge from the bustling urban activity so typical of large and populous cities.

Inspired by industrial and urban US living, concrete, bricks, metal have been used throughout. The apartment is divided into a living area of 30 square meters, a big shower of 6 square meters, and a bedroom of 14 square meters.

Due to its small size, some intelligent solutions have been used that have made it possible to maximize the tiny spaces. Large mirrors have been installed in the closets, so that the light is reflected, creating a more luminous atmosphere and, at the same time, giving us a visual sense of spaciousness.

To maximize the lighting area, the windows were changed and replaced with panoramic views.

The free flow of space created by breaking down the walls of separation naturally forms three social areas, where each member of the family takes what they need while sharing the same world.

The use of simple materials such as glass, wood, ceramic tiles, cloth, stone, vegetation, and stainless steel helps express the features of the space. Considering the safety of the child, all the corners of the wall have been rounded. By using a large number of smart devices, all appliances can be remotely controlled, adding a futuristic touch to the house.

Remodeling a Small Apartment That is 21 Years Old

By • Apr 4, 2018

This functional and modern apartment is located in a residential building that is 21 years old and is located in the central section of the city of Chongqing, China. The space, recently remodeled in 2018, has an area of 71 square meters. Jin Xue, from the interior design firm Xue Jin Architecture Network, was in charge of its design.

Shared living and study area

This construction, respectfully built on a mountain, is a typical local residence. For the past two decades, it was home to a couple and their only child. Now, it is owned by a young couple who, dissatisfied with the original design, lighting, and ventilation, decided to carry out the remodeling to create a more pleasant, comfortable, and functional space that could satisfy their needs.

For the reconstruction of the apartment, it was important to focus on the kitchen and the bathroom. The owner wanted to have a more luminous and spacious kitchen, to cook every day and enjoy the preparation of meals with friends. Whereas with the bathroom, the owner wanted to have a relatively independent bathroom with a bathtub.

It has two relatively private rooms, and a shared open space that, thanks to its flexibility, can serve various functions. The open space was designed to bring the occupants closer to each other while performing daily activities.

By • Apr 3, 2018

Once couples become parents, they start to think about how they can add open areas within the home that will contribute to their children’s development. This couple wanted to make sure that the living room has many storage areas. After extensive discussions, they decided to move away from a conventional design and reconsider the entire structure of the living room.

Study area in the living room

The design was under the leadership of the designer Ivan Chen of the Studio of Interior Design HAO Design in the year 2017, and it is located in the city of Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Creating an ideal home involves more than simply building a safe and comfortable space for children to grow up. It is also important to preserve its own aesthetic sensibility, taste and lifestyle preferences.

Each aspect of the studio reflects the love for industrial style design, which blends beautifully with the wooden floors used for the common areas of the house to generate an air of classic elegance. The wood grain pattern extends to the living room, where the visitor’s eye is immediately captured by the leather sofa.

Moving from the main living room to the master bedroom, the general feeling is of tranquility and relaxation, with a use of shades of blue that represents a continuation of the classic style of the main living room. The child’s room has its own size-adjusted door, an innovative feature that is fun at the same time.
