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

The architectural firm Laurynas Žakevičius Architects designed this fabulous house in 2014. The wonderful exterior is perfectly complemented by its interior, an exhibition of good taste and a perfect example of the capabilities of architects Laurynas Žakevičius, and Evelina Gumuliauskaitė.

Spectacular garden contrasts with the black facade of the house

The house, located in Vilnius, Lithuania, has an area of 275 square meters and is situated on a slope, which has been coupled to create a continuous space. The site is divided into two areas at different levels: an approach area and an inner courtyard for relaxation. The main entrance and technical facilities are one level lower than the main house area.

Access to the patio rises along the naturally sloping ramp below the house, directing visitors towards the back of the site. Inside the interior garden, the floor merges with the floor of the living room, dining room, and bedroom areas of the house.

You can go to the lawn directly from the bedroom. The concrete lining of the front elevation was selected to match with the retention of concrete walls. The remaining part of the house is covered with black stone tiles and natural wood.

The light and minimalist house style and the dark natural colors of the building merge harmoniously with nature and the surroundings.

Elegant, Safe and Comfortable Apartment with a Marked Industrial Style

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.

Modern Villa Surrounded by Mountains and Blue Skies

By • Apr 2, 2018

Brunhais House is a private residence designed by Rui Vieira Oliveira, a Portuguese architectural firm with offices in Guimarães, Portugal and Naples, Italy. It is located in Póvoa de Lanhoso, a parish of Brunhais, a small village surrounded by mountains and characterized by good weather and clear blue skies, itself located in the north of Portugal. The project was begun in 2011 and completed in 2016.

Modern villa in geometric shapes

The house is part of a set of three different projects belonging to three brothers. The intention was to create a structure that could host a couple and support the activity of the family business. The adaptation of the building to the slightly uneven terrain allows for two volumes to overlap, thus allowing the demarcation of these two separate functions. The white structure holds the living quarters, while the gray one is made of a natural stone, and denotes a more functional purpose.

The interior of the buildings is stark white, which creates a strong contrast against the clear blue skies, as well as reflect the light of the strongly shining sun, easing the illumination of the entire structure. Clear glass walls allow this same light to flow into the interior, rendering artificial light virtually unnecessary.

Cabin for Ski Lovers in one of the Most Popular Areas of Norway

By • Mar 30, 2018

In Sjusjøen, one of Norway’s most popular areas for skiing, this fabulous cabin is located, has 133 square meters and the project was carried out in 2017 by the architecture firm Aslak Haanshuus Arkitekter. It is a fast and concentrated development of cabins, tilted to the west with views of the Gudbrandsdalen valley and strong winds from the north. This makes it important to try to protect yourself from the wind and establish private spaces near the building.

View of the cabin bathed by white snow

The cabin is built with prefabricated solid wood elements, visible on the interior walls and ceiling. The walls and the exterior ceilings are covered with charred wood panels, which makes the cabin stand out in the white winter landscape.

Minimalist kitchen in black with shelves

The plan is solved within a strict geometric concept. 12 identical triangles make up the shape of the cabin, and the levels and interior rooms are organized within the geometry. Along with the minimal details, this gives the building a dynamic and clear presence. The continuous windows connect all the rooms with the view of the valley. The larger windows are next to a covered terrace, inside the kitchen and the living room, and through the hall where the rooms are located.

Wonderful Duplex on a Colorful Beach Promenade in California, USA

By • Mar 29, 2018

This wonderful design fuses the desires of both parties: discrepant desires that obviously, at some point, crossed and managed to reach the perfect balance to please and meet the needs and expectations of both. This challenging task was under the direction of the architectural firm Modal Design, in 2016, who managed to create an environment full of warmth. Modern, and at the same time traditional, it is exposed to the open air and full of life in a space of 3263 square feet.

It is located in the area of Venice, California, USA, an area especially known for its canals and beaches as well as for its colorful promenade by the sea, in a somewhat bohemian residential area.

Garden connected to the interior by glass doors

Two outdoor gardens were carved from the building’s mass, each programmed for individual activities and needs, such as eating, relaxing and dining, and responding to the path of the sun. A private patio near the street takes advantage of the morning sun and a grassy lawn for the owner’s dogs, while a more public patio in the back encompasses the afternoon sun and proximity to a covered patio for dining outdoors. This subsequent public space is shared between the upper and lower units and allows physical and visual interaction between landlords and their tenants.

A House Full of Silence and Surrounded by Nature

By • Mar 28, 2018

This house has been built with the express desire to live in a serene place, full of peace and silence, as well as a place where nature would be able to show its greatness. This led them to identify a place in the sector of Ricaurte in Cuenca, Ecuador, an almost intact site that, in the mornings, is stripped of its characteristic mountain mist. Said mist floats on the inclined territory, guiding our gaze upwards towards the top of the trees, mountains, and clouds.

House surrounded by a thick and green forest
Front view of both levels

The architectural firm Ruptura Morlaca Arquitectura was commissioned in 2017 to carry out this singular and special project by the hand of its professionals Paul Chango and Carolina Bravo. It is located in the city of Cuenca, Ecuador, and has an area of 200 square meters.

Front view with mountains in background

Working with the slope of the site allowed them to observe the architecture as another element of the natural landscape. In a way, it became an extension of the mountain that adapted to every inch of its topography while simultaneously charting its own course. Thus, it became an artificial component of the mountain itself. You could even venture to say that geography was created here, and not architecture.

Remodeling a Space in an Urban Area of Beijing, China

By • Mar 28, 2018

This project is located in an urban area of the west area of Ciqikou Street, a semi-chaotic area that could be described as a poor neighborhood, which is a typical urban form in the Hutong areas nowadays in the city of Beijing, China. The new structure is a building within the original wall, which has been strengthened.

In addition, the reinforced concrete roof is stable enough for the additional weight of the people that are going to be occupying that space. Open views and lots of sunlight come together to create a pleasant space. The project, of only 28 square meters, was led by architectural firm Chaoffice, and in particular, by its architect Zhi Cheng.

The home is characterized by a set of hidden storage compartments, largely under the bed or the table. According to the plan, the functions within the house have been compressed into two defined spaces, leaving the center completely free of the chaos that prevails elsewhere in the house. This has provided a sense of dignity for those who use the space, as well as a sense of comfort.
The space can also be seen as a sequence, the home subdivided into two spaces composed entirely of functional aspects, as well as spaces defined by clarity.

Town House with Wonderful Interiors

By • Mar 27, 2018

This wonderful stone-walled town house with high wooden ceilings is located in the area of Drafi, Attica, in the northern suburbs of Athens, Greece. The mountainous area is full of pine trees, as well as wonderful views over the green hills that surround it.

Front view with parking area
Side view with stone wall

The terrain of almost 20 meters had a slope that was a challenge for the architects, who adapted to the landscape and designed a modern house with a butterfly roof. This inevitably led to a 2-level design adapting to the inclination and fluctuations of the topology. Two different blocks, facing north and west, sit on different levels and join in the middle with a wedge-shaped volume that forms the entrance and vertical circulation that leads to the main spaces of the house.

The interior, with 9-meter-high ceilings, pleasantly surprises visitors, and the wonderful views through the glass walls will leave them speechless.

The four basic walls of the house are covered with stone, to look as if they were coming through the ground, connected to the exposed wooden ceiling only through a series of triangular aluminum windows. The butterfly roof, which reverses the conventional tilted-roof icon, allows natural light to enter through those tall windows at the back of the building.

By • Mar 27, 2018

Studio Course, an Indian architectural firm based in Pune, has completed this project, an exploration of the traditional structure of a home in Maharashtra, India, a so called Veranda on a Roof. It was added to the roof of a twelve storey building, and serves as a transitional space between a public and private area, or between a house and a street.

When Studio Course designed this veranda, they designed it as a space to keep the family in mind, and for it to serve as a special place to be added to a home and which would revolve around books, food, and plants. As such, it houses a library and a pantry, their spaces rich and warm, and the perfect mixture between rustic and elegant through the use of polished concrete and wooden surfaces, as well as thick wooden ceiling beams. Textiles serve to add touches of color through the space, giving it an extra hint of vibrancy.

This has also eased the communication between the two spaces, allowing them to engage in a dialogue.

A Ruined Fisherman’s House has been Converted into a Home Full of Natural Light

By • Mar 26, 2018

This home is located in a charming fishing village on the left bank of the Tagus River, in the area of Trafaria, Lisbon, Portugal. At 100 years old, it’s no surprise to learn that this house was previously in ruins, as the construction was very poor, made with easily available materials: sand, mud, stones, shells, small pieces of pottery, wood, etc.

Main façade in white

The architectural firm Ines Brandão Arquitectura, under the direction of its architects, Henrieta Selcova and Joao Aires Neves, set to work in 2017. Their plan was to completely transform this 204 square meter area into a space full of natural light, with a clear connection to the outside area, trying to preserve the original image of this building at all times. They sought to maintain its identity, adapting it to the needs of the current owners: a young family, consisting of a couple with a baby.

The aim of the clients was to obtain a multifunctional home: a holiday home and a short-term rental in the present and a home where they would like to live in the future.
The ground floor of the main building was designed with the aim of creating wide and fluid spaces, with the living room and kitchen regarded as key elements, separated only by the volume of the staircase. The old garage was converted into an independent suite, to be used by guests.

A Contemporary Home for a Modern Family

By • Mar 26, 2018

This house, built in a contemporary style, has been designed for a modern family in the city of Oltaszyn, a district on the southern outskirts of Wrocław, Poland, by the architectural firm Marmur Studio.

Front view of the house with white walls

In recent years, this area has experienced rapid growth. This first manifested itself as a luxury neighborhood of single-family homes, later transformed to include numerous low-intensity apartment complexes. This is possible because, although the history of Oltaszyn goes back to the Middle Ages, the area was almost completely destroyed during World War II and did not redevelop until only recently.

The ground floor is designed to provide an easy transition from one side of the house to the other. Immediately after entering the house there is a panoramic view of the garden. The first floor serves as the living room with an entertainment room. The design of the children’s rooms was a crucial feature; each one has a loft and is well lit. The family bathroom is spacious and has a sauna that also has a door to the terrace. In the same fashion as the living room and dining room on the ground floor, the entertainment room also has sliding doors in the courtyard to provide an unobstructed view of the garden.

The Simplicity of Concrete is Reflected in this Wonderful Construction

By • Mar 23, 2018

This wonderful house with concrete walls is located in a development north of the metropolitan area of Mexico City in Mexico. It was designed in 2018 by the architectural firm Jorge Hernández de la Garza under the direction of its magnificent professionals Jorge Hernandez de la Garza, Alin Gamboa, Miguel Angel Loyola and Octavio Alvarado.

Exterior in which concrete, wood and stone are combined

The land on which the building is constructed is a sloped area full of stones. The architectural project was carried out in three levels, with the environments being distributed according to the needs of the client. The first semi-fitted level is where the bathrooms are located; the second level is the garden, as well as where the public spaces of housing are located; finally, the third seems to float above the rest of the volumes.

At the bottom of the land next to the garden, a 15-meter-high stone wall rises and was the perfect setting to direct the interior views of the house to the immediate surroundings. The general volume is presented with two different intentions. On the one hand, on the front façade, a series of overlapping boxes with minimal openings are erected in order to provide as much privacy as possible; on the other, on the rear façade, it was sought to give the greatest possible transparency to the great stone wall.

A Small Apartment as a Refuge for a Couple and Their 51 Cats

By • Mar 23, 2018

This home in the old Xuhui residential district of Shanghai in Leshan Road, China, has come to life after the fabulous renovation that was completed in 2017 thanks to the architectural firm FANAF. The project manager, architect Xin Jin, managed to create a small and cozy home space in only 31 square meters. Not only will the couple live here, but they will do so with their 51 cats. Yes, you read that right: 51 cats!

Entrance lined in wood

To begin the project, the designers lived with the clients and their cats in the space for a whole day. The unique experience allowed designers to understand the customers’ lifestyle needs and areas of concern by sharing a small area with so many cats. Through this experience, the designers identified that the room lacked separate areas. The living space of the couple was completely occupied by cats, which caused inconveniences to the owners.

The magnitude of the problem meant that it was common to find cat hair in kitchen utensils and sleep with more than a dozen cats at night. The owners did not have a place to relax alone and the guests could not sit and enjoy a conversation or stay for long periods. In addition, to prevent the cats from escaping, the windows were constantly closed, which meant that the room did not have adequate ventilation.

Wonderful Remodeling of an Apartment Overlooking the River

By • Mar 22, 2018

Upon laying eyes on the modern interior of this renovated apartment that they are standing in an old building from the 20th Century. This is thanks to the extensive remodeling work that was undertaken largely during the 80s, where the building was completely refurbished.

Terrace with wonderful views of the river

The apartment is divided into two different levels: the first, an ordinary residence area; the second, a scarcely-used terrace area above the first, where an informal storage area was built. The intervention reverses the detachment between these two levels and attempts to unite the internal and external areas of the apartment.

Cozy living room with fireplace and wooden floors

The architectural firm Arriba, under the direction of its architects José Andrade Rocha and Filipe Ferreira, was in charge of carrying out the 115 square meter project, which is located in Dom Vasco, Lisbon, Portugal.

Kitchen area with wooden staircase in the center

The proposal reorganizes the spaces of the apartment, empties the terrace, and uses the height of the roof of the uninhabited attic, exposing the structure of the roof and the atmosphere of an old building. The social space now includes the kitchen, while the private spaces meet at the back of the apartment.

The wooden staircase is the organizing element: an integral piece of the apartment that establishes the entrance, the kitchen, and the living room, giving access to the terrace that overlooks the river where you can enjoy the sun.

Concrete House with a Simple and Elegant Interior

By • Mar 22, 2018

This house, occupying a space of roughly 360 square meteres, appears strong and rough on the exterior. However, its interior surprises us kindly with a set of wide, bright, and warming spaces. It is located in Sanfins, Portugal, and the design was made in 2017 by the architectural firm Pedro Henrique.

Concrete facahada

Located in a rural context, but close to the historical and central center of Santa Maria da Feira, the project is developed from the recovery of an existing stone house and the construction of a new concrete body. These two structures are interconnected by a wooden structure and wide openings, merging as one the interior and exterior.

Concrete house surrounded by green spaces

The entrance of the house is the central and intermediate point of distribution that relates the two floors. The upper floor, dedicated to the private spaces of the home, we can see two areas of differing make: the first space, of concrete walls, consists of the children’s bedrooms and bathrooms, whilst the second space, of stone walls, consists of the parents’ bedrooms. Meanwhile, the lower floor is destined to all the social areas and bathrooms.
