Apartment in Brazil with a Scandinavian Feel

By • Mar 2, 2018

Apartment with Partitions is a project completed by the Sao Paulo-based architectural firm  Casa100 Arquitetura in 2016. The home itself is located in Vila Mariana, a dynamic borough of the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil, located to the south of Bela Vista and Liberdade, east of Jardim Paulista and west of Ipiranga. The home covers a total ground area of 65 square meters.

The clients wished for this home to have a Scandinavian feel, and so they asked Casa100 Arquitetura to focus on creating a minimalist interior design. In order to achieve this, the color palette was kept within a limited range, and the furnishings chosen are sparse, allowing the architecture to speak for itself.

Originally, the apartment had two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The resulting floor plan consists of a much larger master suite, with a spacious closet where the second bedroom was originally located. The bathroom saw the two shower cabins fused into a larger one, while the smaller bathroom was converted into a restroom. The open kitchen was given a counter, which doubles as a dining space, and which looks out onto the living room.

The interior décor is done mostly in pale shades of gray, white, and wooden surfaces. Plants and patterned surfaces, such as the rug that decorates the living room floor, serve to add touches of vibrancy to the space.

An Old Church Converted into a Family Home

By • Mar 2, 2018

Nowadays, this magnificent construction of an old church is a family home, and it couldn’t be more amazing. It is located on a hillside and has two levels which have been designed to incorporate the element of subtropical design, thus emphasizing a connection with the natural context and the site.

It is located in a suburb of Brisbane in Norman Park, Australia, has an area of 609 square meters and has been redesigned by the architectural firm DAHA by the hand of David Hansford in 2017. The extension of this house is a balanced adaptation of an existing church in a unique family home. The extension creates a continuity of the existing church through different materials, creating a balance between the old and the new.

The project responds to the unique conditions of the site, including natural ones as well as those related to its construction. The large portion of elevated terrain in which it is located provides you with wonderful views of the city. The prominent church, built in 1924, is in a central position and needed to become part of the family home.
The use of gaps and bridges promotes interaction and social connections between levels. The design of the extension generates social centers, as well as private retreats, creating a home that can grow with the family in the coming years.

It covers a total ground area of 683 square meters, and was completed in 2016. The façade that looks out to the northeast of the property enjoys privileged views over the valley.

The spaces seek to satisfy and make the most of the qualities of the place, within the breadth and continuity of the space demanded by the client. Therefore, the program was organized in a linear scheme.

The home is distributed across two levels, with public areas on the ground floor and private areas on the upper level.

The base of the residence consists of an entrance hall, the TV room, a gym, the service area, and the dining room as the main space completely open to the northeast, merging with the garden through a porch.

The four existing suites were placed along the northeast facade, united by a balcony through a subtraction in the volume that indicates the views to the city valley.

A Very Authentic House with Its Own Expression

By • Feb 28, 2018

Located in the city of Xalapa Enríquez, in Jalapa, Mexico, this project, which covers a total ground area of 200 square meters, intended to achieve a contemporary design while maintaining its local roots, preserving the identity of the city in which it is located. The design was created by the architectural firm BCA Taller de Diseño in the year 2017.

Main entrance with red brick wall
Living room in a simple and current style

The architectural firm’s design for this project pivoted around three separate points: architecture, interior design, and lighting design. A simple composition of pure volumes gives rise to the main body, creating both public and private spaces. The selection of materials was a key factor in the realization of this project (enclosure stone, natural oak wood, visible concrete, and half red clay), and underlines the architecture of this house, which is distinguished by its authenticity and its own expression.

The methodology is based on generating the design from within, giving greater weight to a more human experience. The areas, despite having different uses, are part of the same volume. This was achieved on the first floor, for example, by removing the walls and adding specially designed furniture that ordered and separated the spaces. The furniture was made with local craftsmen and companies from Xalapa.

Architectural Studio Designed for a Couple of Architects

By • Feb 28, 2018

This project is a 46 square meter home studio designed for a couple of architects who not only share their passion for architecture, but also both enjoy music and painting together. It is located in Kerala, India, and was designed by the architects Shinoop & Revathy of Attic Lab.

Front view of the house

The interior needed to be flexible and serve as a multifunctional space in which to practice music and enjoy debate and discussion. It also needed to be compact and modern in its material and construction. The entire space is divided into two levels, ground floor and attic, which act as work and leisure space, respectively.

The characteristic regional expression of Kerala architecture is the result of geographical, climatic, and historical factors. The most distinctive visual form of Kerala architecture is the long, steep sloping roof built to protect the walls of the house.

Structurally, the roof frame was supported on the pillars in the walls erected in a raised base of the floor for protection against moisture and insects in the tropical climate.

The selection of materials and construction techniques was influenced by structural load, cost, installation time, and maintenance over time and sustainability.

Warm Chalet with Fabulous Views Over the Mountains

By • Feb 28, 2018

Located in Tegernsee, Germany, these fabulous chalets have been designed by the interior design firm landau+kindelbacher Architekten Innenarchitekten.

Magnificent views of the mountains

With the opening of the Alpine chalets, the hotel DAS TEGERNSEE has expanded its wide range of lodgings by adding a new format — and what’s more, these chalets are also available for long term stays. Since 2017, 18 apartments and double rooms measuring anywhere from 35 to 120 square meters have offered up to 8 people a temporary home.

Cozy wooden round dining room table

Through a weather-resistant glass passage, the Alpine chalets are connected directly to the hotel and, therefore, to the lobby, the hotel’s gastronomic offer, and the large spa area. The holistic and practiced philosophy of the hotel is also continued in the new accommodation.

Dining room with terrace and views of the mountains

Two sections of construction, directly interconnected, house 18 new room units on two levels. Whether they have their own private terrace on the lower level or balconies at the top, they all have an unrestricted view of the Tegernsee and the surrounding mountains. The exposed rooms and the floor-to-ceiling windows, in combination with high ceilings, additionally reinforce the spatial effect.

On the upper floor, all the rooms are completely covered in spruce, in the style of the unique character of the alpine wooden chalets. The ceiling of the rooms and suites on the ground floor are also clad with wood.

A Small Apartment that Nevertheless Contains all the Necessary Amenities

By • Feb 27, 2018

This apartment covering a ground area of only 50 square meters is on the upper level of a three-storey building located in the neighborhood of Pinheiros, São Paulo, Brazil. It was designed by the architectural firm Vão, by a team made up of architects Anna Juni, Enk te Winkel, and Gustavo Delonero. The project was completed in the year 2017.

Small living room full of natural light

The main request made by the future resident was that the 50 square meters that comprised the useful area of the apartment had to be reorganized, so that the bedroom could be isolated from the other spaces. Considering this, the construction was carried out almost without any demolition, which is quite unusual for remodeling projects.

Space shared by the living room and kitchen

The extension of the existing wall allowed the creation of a volume that houses the bedroom, relocating it from the main façade, which faced the street, to the back, where the windows overlook the interior garden of the community. In addition to preserving this restful environment from the sounds of the street, the new location was also designed so that the proportions of the integrated living room (living room, kitchen, and balcony) would be balanced, as well as the natural light that flows into them.

Since the building has a collective laundry room on the ground floor, the area that was available for that purpose was replaced by a large closet.

A House Full of Natural Light and Music

By • Feb 27, 2018

This one storey project was built on a plot covering an area of 250 square meters in a residential area. As such, part of the design intent was to integrate the project with its only possible view: the sky.

Entrance with the typical colors of the Mexican culture

The owner, a pianist, took advantage of the experience of the architects Diana G. Ortiz Moreno, Diego Torres Guízar, and Fabiola Cruz Garcia from the architectural firm TAAB, in order to carry out this 188-square meter project in the city of Jacona, Michoacan, in Mexico.

Entrance with open skies
Wooden door

The interior spaces, including the bedroom, the study, the kitchen, the garage, the living room, the dining room, and the service rooms, are confined as much by the carpentry as by the modulation of the columns.

Hall with cork floors
Internal garden with glass walls

The walls of the property are mostly made of glass, which allows natural light to fill the spaces during the day, making them look luminous and elegant.

The materiality of the house allows the ceiling to be perceived as a continuous element perforated by courtyards that contrast with the low walls, in which the natural tone of the sand of the region can be appreciated. The coating on the floors differentiates the public area, with marble floors and natural stone, from the private one, which has a cork floor.

Remodeling a Small Apartment to add Visual Amplitude

By • Feb 27, 2018

This project consists of the renovation of an apartment located on the 18th floor of a building in Sao Paulo, Brazil, which dates back to 1950 and was built by the architect Artacho Jurado. The remodeling was carried out in 2016 by the architectural firm Vão, and covers a total ground area of 56 square meters.

Lounge area with access to a small terrace

The apartment offers a privileged view of the city center from its terrace. The demolition of all the internal walls of the original plan was, therefore, an intentional action in order to allow the cityscape and natural light, framed by the original wooden frames, to flow into the space.

Living room, kitchen, and dining room sharing a space

To increase the feeling of spaciousness within the 46 square meters of internal area, the division between environments was done through a piece of furniture that hangs suspended above the green floor that covers the entire department. The volume of wood in the middle of the plan opens to both the living room and the bedroom, and has a double function: while one side is a closet for books and electronics, the other serves as storage for clothing. The functionality of the concrete countertop also helped in the organization and to gain space, because it integrates laundry utensils, kitchen, and bathroom, separated from them by a mirror suspended on the countertop.

A Beautiful House that Combines Wood and White

By • Feb 26, 2018

This detached house has been built on a plot of 1500 square meters in the area of Trofa, Portugal, in 2015. For this, the architectural firm NoArq, led by one of its most talented architects, José Carlos Nunes de Oliveira, made the decision to demolish the old farmhouse in front of the road made of soft stone and clay with a compact earth soil. The old tree was preserved, as were the location of the old accesses to the land on the north and south sides.

The house has an area of ​​378 square meters of construction distributed on one level. The center of the volume (which was built in the shape of an “H”) houses the areas most frequently used by the inhabitants: the entrance, distribution, services and meals. The west wing is reserved for meetings, relaxation, and services, such as bathrooms and the laundry room. To the east, there are two bodies connected to the central volume (which extends to the north and to the south) to compose the rest of the “H.” These are used as a garage and lounge. The garage has the worst situation in the plot when it comes to sun exposure. The original shale walls were redesigned, enlarged and rebuilt due to the obligations of landscaping

Twentieth Century Apartment with a Modern Interior

By • Feb 26, 2018

This fabulous apartment of worn brick walls, which dates back to the Twentieth Century, and located in the heart of the beautiful Spanish city of Valencia tells a very unique story.

View of the fabulous interior of the living room with worn brick walls

It has been designed by the architectural firm Roberto Di Donato Architecture, a London-based architectural and design practice, established in 2014 operating across UK and Europe. After many years 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.

View of the living area from the living room

The focus of the project was guided by the ambition to create modern, distinct, but fluid living spaces that almost left the existing structure intact.

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 contact with it, which underlines the respect for the past and also allows to perceive the full feeling of space and volume of the apartment.
