A Remodeling that Shows Part of his Past

By • Aug 27, 2018

Located in the populous city of Shanghai in China, this 517 square-foot apartment has been remodeled in a very original and creative way by TOWOdesign, fully following the long list of requirements made by the client.

Yellow and gray lounge area

The entrance of the apartment and the adjacent storage space are covered with a mirror finish so that the brightly-lit house seems more spacious. To prevent these volumes from blocking lines of vision and to create a more spacious feel, the designers have deftly rotated the structures 10 degrees, a move that inspired the name of the project: 10 Degree House. 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.

Imposing Construction Full of Style and Comfort

By • Aug 24, 2018

This imposing and modern building of 697 square meters was designed by the architectural firm KWK Promes in Poland, in 2016. Its architect, Robert Konieczny, and his team of professionals decided to adjust the functions organized by the customer and connect them: entrance, house, and marina. He presents us with the idea of “ribbon”, which spans the entire area. First, from the entrance like a road, then it twists and forms the roofs and walls of the house, wrapping its interior.

Next, the ribbon unrolled, connecting the raised living room with the garden level. Then, wriggling, the tape runs towards the river. Then the road crosses the house. The living room originally ordered by the client was substituted with a parking garage, complete with a glass wall.

The client had his own vision of the interior of the house with the living room on the first level. Furthermore, he wanted to locate a house in the middle of the site, away from the river.
All internal spaces have glass walls which allows indoor and outdoor connection and, at the same time, allows natural light to enter each of the areas of the house.

Discrete Remodeling of a Mid-Century Bungalow

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 Downie North Architects, 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

Tree House Surrounded by Magical Natural Spaces

By • Aug 23, 2018

This project, called the tree house, is 8 meters high and boasts a total area of 80 square meters of interior. It is located in a little visited mountain village at the foot of Siming Mountain, Zhongcun, Luting, Yuyao, Zhejiang Province, China and was designed in 2018 by the architectural firm MONOARCHI under the direction of its professionals Xiaochao Song, Keming Wang, Fu Congwei, Yang Chao, Weina Guan, Linxian Luo, Xingyu Gao, Sun Fan, Jing Ya, and Lingling Zhang.

Room completely covered in wood

It is divided into upper and lower parts. The lower part is composed of steel support columns, whereas the upper part mainly employs wood. 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.

The town in which it is located rests on the edge of a secondary forest. A small river, dividing the town into two parts, crosses slowly from north to south. The tree house is located on the west bank of the lower stream. Two facing peaks are located east and west of the site, where the green bamboos extend across the hill, creating a friendly and quiet atmosphere.

Spectacular Remodeling Carried out with a Tight Budget

By • Aug 23, 2018

This magnificent remodeling of a space with a limited available area, approximately 112 square meters that required the utmost prudence, was carried out by the architectural firm Whiting Architects. It was supervised by its professionals Steven Whiting, Eleanor Eade, and Josie Somerville in the city of Fitzroy, in Australia.

Entrance in black and white details

The original cabin was dark, cold and narrow with a staircase in the middle of the already small social area space, accessing your individual room. The goal was to create a functional two-bedroom house with a modest budget. Space constraints, light, and views drove the design response.

Modern entrance area

The views of the neighboring church and its iconic features are framed throughout the house through windows and skylights placed precisely, creating a sense of connectivity in layers. Framing specific focal points through the interior landscape, both in new and existing areas, informed the response of the architectural design. The operable glazing provides natural light and cross ventilation, while the angled volumes capture a beautiful and changing quality of light.

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 firm Equipo Olivares Arquitectos, 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.

Entering the existing house presented us with the essence of the ancient Thai living space, carefully reimagined by the original architect. It was a first generation concrete structure and, unique to a building of that period, incorporated the traditional planning of the Thai space.

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.

A Small Family Home Found in Ancient Beijing’s Labyrinth of Alleys

By • Aug 20, 2018

This project is located in a labyrinth of streets and courtyards of Hutongs in Beijing, China, an area characterized by being an authentic urban area. It is surrounded by highways with a width of 20 meters, skyscrapers in constant expansion, and modern blocks. The project has an area of 115 square meters.

View of the streets

The atmosphere of its streets is brought together by a family kitchen, breakfast stalls, public bathrooms and seasonal humidity. As for sound, it is also vivid: chatting with neighbors, selling cigarettes, discussing with passengers. Different dialects, crunching leaves, birds and insects make up an intriguing symphony.

Internal courtyard
Glass walls

When the wooden door opens, there is a square space surrounded by gray brick walls. Two large ginkgo trees stand in the courtyard; a unique space is created under the trees and on the roof. The design was created by MINOR lab and its professionals Chen Liu, Yi-chi Wang, and Ping-chen Yeh in the year 2017.

The walls on either side of the Hutong prevent direct sunlight from entering, which can be seen as a divider between public and private places. Inside the walls, it is still an interior and closed space. However, the patio lets in the sky, the wind, the sunlight, the air, and the sound.

With Perfectly Delimited Internal Areas this House Offers Direct Contact with Nature

By • Aug 17, 2018

This project’s design adopted the strategy to clearly differentiate the relationship with the landscape of the living spaces, on the one hand, and the areas of night and service, on the other. It was carried out by the architectural firm Unoencinco Arquitectura in the year 2016 in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Front view of the construction in the middle of the green garden

Located in the “El Ocho” neighborhood, in a land of incipient consolidation, it occupies approximately half a hectare that presents a style typical of Pampa in Argentina.

Under a covered plan, two “boxes” were measured and placed, divided up with an alternating pattern of vertical and horizontal openings to the exterior. These areas included everything from the restrooms to the bedrooms, as well as the structural support. In the small space between them, the living room is fully immersed with the landscape, allowing us to enjoy it in all its splendor. A gallery that takes a full edge with its full / empty shades acts like bellows that expands outwards.

Roofed terrace connected to the garden

The Charm of the Aged Brick Gave a New Look to this Ancient Construction

By • Aug 17, 2018

This house of 170 square meters, with an exterior of aged red brick walls and a concrete interior, underwent, in its infancy, a process of strict restrictions and regulations. It is located in Budapest, Hungary and was recently designed by architects Thalas Fialovszky, Gergő Jedlicska, and Gergely Kenéz, all working for the architectural firm Építész Stúdió. Located on a narrow corner plot, the roof was the only place where, with a little twist, the unusable attic became a spacious room with a bathroom.

The house and the surrounding structures are differentiated by materials. The house is covered with recycled and sliced bricks, inspired by the demolished building of the site. Some materials were reused, mainly in the shape of the pavement and the walls of the garden. The concrete of the terraces is kept raw, as well as the interior slabs, visually connecting the internal and external structures. The interior is softened with the presence of wooden furniture and pavement.

A Remodeling that Achieved Open Spaces and Full of Natural Light

By • Aug 16, 2018

This home, belonging to a large family of 6, is located in Herzliya Pituach, Israel and was part of a renovation of an old building in which the interior was emptied, a reinforcement was applied, and the structure was expanded using mostly lightweight construction materials. Originally, the building had several rooms on the ground floor, including a stable, and an external staircase led to the second floor, where the main room was located. The architectural firm Tomer Ben Dor was commissioned to carry out the 182-square-meter project in 2017.

Terrace with pool
Entrance from the terrace

The ground floor includes the living room, the kitchen, the dining room, the guest room, the master bedroom with private bathroom, and a shelter that is also used as a closet room. The second floor includes two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a laundry room. Another bedroom is located in the attic.

The main guide for the design of the exterior appearance was the use of neutral dark tones in order to create a building that fits the shade of tall trees and the surrounding garden. Therefore, the tones chosen for the front of the building were mainly gray and dark green.
