Modern Apartment with a Marked Industrial Style Designed for a Young Businessman

By • Nov 8, 2018

This fabulous and modern apartment located in the city of Kyiv, Ukraine, has been designed by the architects Ivan Yunakov, Olga Korniienko, Natali Raga, and Yaroslav Katrich, all working for the firm 33bY Architecture. The client was a young entrepreneur, and the home has a distinct industrial style.

Elegant entrance in black and gold

It has an area of 97 square meters and was carried out in 2018. In the interior, a palette of dark colors and a variety of materials were used, with different structures. Among those materials were brick, natural African black stone, onyx, leather, copper, and wood. Upon entering the apartment, the first thing we notice is the wall made of black stone on one side, and the black surface with golden decoration elements on the other side. The living room is combined with a kitchen, a dining room, and a work space.

Spacious and modern lounge
Elegant lounge area

The space was separated by using glass partitions, looking to align the boundaries between the facilities, but at the same time to achieve open and floating spaces. The glass structure is made by using the “smart glass” system technology; it can be converted to matt to achieve greater privacy within the room.

The panel that was used to balance the dark tones is white onyx with backlighting framed by copper edges. It works at night and creates a cozy atmosphere, and is the focal point of our interior, seen from all the main facilities of the apartment.

Fantastic Remodeling of two Old Houses in the City of Brussels, Belgium

By • Sep 18, 2018

This fantastic remodeling of two narrow houses that were in very poor condition, as they had been used by their former owner as a rental for students who needed cheap accommodation, was carried out in 2016 by the architectural firm K2A. The interior was designed by the firm Permis de Construire and Denis Dujardin was in charge of the gardens.

Exterior view of the back garden

The property covers a total area of 500 square meters and is located in Brussels, Belgium. It is located in a prestigious and vibrant area of the city, in a basement with little insulation, with little air and little natural light inside. The project consisted in uniting the two houses while respecting the typology of the existing buildings and making the most of their new width to offer generous and luminous spaces to the new residents.

Modern and sober lounge

The front façade, a beautiful 19th century brick façade belonging to a row of similar houses, was restored and remained essentially intact. However, the large rear façade opened generously to encompass the south-facing garden.

There, wide glass doors open onto the wonderful garden where a dining room and an outdoor living area have been installed to spend time with friends and family while enjoying the good weather.

Wonderful Integration of two Levels Designed for Specific Purposes

By • Sep 12, 2018

This triplex, redesigned by the firm Casa14 Arquitetura, had never been inhabited. Seeing it today, few people would say that its spaces were dark and fragmented. Architecture professionals Mariana Andersen and Mariana Guradani, together with Max Heringer and Gabriele Azevedo, were in charge of carrying out the wonderful transformation of this space that has an area of 900 square meters. Located in the city of São Paulo, State of São Paulo, Brazil, the project was undertaken by the firm in the year 2015.

Spacious living room with contrasting colors

The project aimed to integrate the floors and highlight the character of the materials.

The generous openings in the walls offer a visual connection between different environments in each of the three levels of the apartment. The project also emphasized the relationship between the environment, gardens and circulation. The staircase, a bent steel plate lined with wood at the bottom and white stone at the top, appears as though it were a sculptural element that joins the three decks. The vertical structure stands out.

Each floor was designed for a specific use. In this order: live, work and rest. On the first level are the rooms, the kitchen, and the service area. The second was designed to receive a library of 5,000 titles integrated in a garden where the resident works, reads, and writes. The last level brings with it the leisure area, with a music studio, whirlpool, sauna, and a barbecue, impregnated with a vertical garden in all its extension.

Mi Casa, a Project in Which an Architect Designs for Another Architect

By • Jul 30, 2018

This project, carried out by Studio [+] Valéria Gontijo under the direction of Valéria Gontijo, Isabela Moura and Isabela Valença, was divided by the dichotomy between the enthusiasm and the objectivity of the creative process. Designing for an architect, by architects, was and always will be a challenge, since they seek to create a practical, functional and timeless home.

Spacious and well-kept gardens

Located in Brasília, Brazil and with an area of 890 square meters, the studio sought an architecture that reflected personal taste but also the desire to simplify the lives of its inhabitants.

Gardens with trees

Clear volumes and pure geometries gave the design group rationality and harmony. The house was distributed in three blocks: function, connection and permanence. In addition, the consistent application of concrete and wood created harmony, as this uniform materiality creates a sense of integration.

The interior design is marked by personal choices (antiques, pieces chosen during trips, family art). The search for each piece, each painting and adornment gives the project a rare and important uniqueness.

It is a seemingly simple house, but it is one that carries a history full of challenges and efforts, right from its conception, as demonstrated by the carefully chosen lighting design, the effort in the execution of the walls, the mixture of concrete formed in a board, and the stroke of a client-architect.

By • Jul 17, 2018

This imposing construction of large outdoor gardens is located in the city of Medellin, Antioquia – Colombia. It was designed in 2016 by the team of architects Jaime Rendon, architect Felipe Campuzano and architect Clara Restrepo of the architectural firm Jaime Rendon Architects.

Side view of the construction

It covers an area of 615 square meters and is on a slope, so the construction was built in such a way that it adapts to the terrain. The entire service area of the house is in the first volume, as well as and the main access entryway.

Modern Loft with a Beautiful and Practical Design

By • Jul 6, 2018

This fantastic loft, with high walls made of brick and concrete, was recently renovated in order to more closely fit the wants and needs of a young and single client. It was crucial that it fit perfectly, especially taking into consideration that the space was rented, and that, in the future, the furniture would be reutilized somewhere else. This is why the furniture, for the most part, was chosen in accordance with each of the spaces in the home.

Space between the living room and dining room where the wooden floors can be clearly seen

The project was undertaken by architectural firm treszerosete in 2017, and was specifically led by experienced professionals André Britto, Caio Ferraz and Kamal Yazbek.

View of the entire area of the loft

It is located in the popular city of São Paulo in Brazil. It covers a total area of 80 square meters, which is not bad at all when we consider that the apartment is occupied by a single person.

Access to the apartment is characterized by a small hallway that limits its use. This is why a bookshelf design that could transmit the personality of the resident through the personal objects—apart from being able to establish a clear order for objects of daily use—was chosen.

The bookshelf at the entrance to the apartment moves through to the stairs, and together—staircase and bookshelf—create a space that allows for concentration and hard work. This was, indeed, as it was requested by the client themselves.

The lower level is the common area, and was designed to receive many people. This is also true for the balcony area, which was designed to help with reunions and gatherings, as the people seated there can easily move to the living room.

It has an extensive area of ​​5600 square meters and is located in Paradise Valley, Arizona, United States, a town that is known for its luxury golf courses, shopping, and restaurant scene.

The distinctive feature of this house is its floating roof canopy, whose lower part is composed of tectonic forms inspired by local geology and monsoon cloud formations. More than just sculpture and protection from the elements, this awning balances the owner’s desire for grandeur and comfort, starting below the interior spaces and dramatically rising towards the 180 degree view of the mountain. All mechanical and lighting devices are carefully hidden within the fissures of this feature, which allows the shape and materials to be the center of attention.

Spectacular Project Undertaken by Architectural firm Martin Ferrero Architecture in the Yucatan Peninsula

By • Jun 11, 2018

A hybrid house by design, this project was undertaken by architectural firm Martin Ferrero Architecture, led by its professional architect Daniel Martín Ferrero. It is located on an island in the Caribbean Sea, near the Mexican Yucatan peninsula; its exact location, however, is not one that we can share publicly.

Spectacular panoramic view of the project
Aerial view of the project

It was ordered by a Swiss client with the intention of creating a home that was the definitive fusion of art, nature, and architecture. The client was specifically inspired by other architectural works, most notably House Fallingwater – by Frank Lloyd Wright – and Farnsworth House – by Mies van der Rohe. He wanted to adapt the architecture and language of the projects “Xálima Island House” and “Pabellón del Agua” to a Caribbean island where the Mesoamerican culture could be seen in all its splendor.

Aerial view of the modern project

This was all done in order to create a vocational home where the owner could experience a true tropical paradise and pay homage to the arts. It is a symbiosis between the environment and the artifice of the human race, where nature, steel, wood, and glass combine to create an architectural style that is dedicated to the human senses.

The project greatly appreciates the abundant vegetation
Spectacular construction over high rocks

The design investigates the potential of the fusion between the ancient Mayan architecture and the treatment of the fluid spaces of the modernist design. This gives way to a project that rewrites the traditions and vernacular of the modern elements with contemporary construction.

It specifically occupies a space of 26,000 square meters, with a total area of 42,500 square meters. Each of the twelve bedrooms – each roughly one thousand square meters in size – offers all of the commodities naturally associated with a luxurious a project as this.

Imposing Concrete Construction Surrounded by Thick Green Vegetation

By • Apr 5, 2018

This imposing construction of high concrete walls has been designed by the architect Cherng Yih Lee, who works for the architectural firm FORMZERO, in the city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The home was completed in the year 2017 and covers an extensive area of 900 square meters, distributed across its three levels.

Aerial view of the imposing concrete construction

It is located right on the edge of a reserved forest, perfect for those who like to enjoy the outdoors and nature. However, one of the points on which its designers focused was avoiding, at all costs, that the existing windows became the most direct element with which to define the relationship with the outdoor space. When a house is surrounded by other houses, the relationship is immediately blurred by dropping a curtain. The question was … How to restore that relationship with the outer space without compromising the necessary privacy inside?

From east to west, this house is wrapped in an additional layer consisting of a wall of perforated concrete that looks like a shell. In addition to acting as a thermal protection with cross ventilation, the carapace is the first layer to control privacy. Between the house and the concrete framework, several levels of landscape are inserted to create an ambiguous condition that makes the landscape look more like an interior space.

Bunker in Which You Can Stay and Feel at Home

By • Mar 8, 2018

Have you ever considered staying in a bunker? Well then this post is for you! Located in the city of Hamburg, Germany, this space promises a private and relaxed atmosphere after an arduous day of work in the city and surrounded by the luxury you can find in your own home.

Terrace with space to enjoy

The bunker in Bülowstrasse was built in 1939 when the Second World War began. The original objective was to protect the hospital for women and children on the other side of the street, but a last-minute decision made it into part of the hospital. Through a tunnel, the Bunker was connected to the hospital and, during the war, the bunker served as the perfect refuge for newborns and their mothers, in addition to offering quiet operating rooms for the sick and injured.

Sober and elegant lounge

For many years after the war, the Bunker abandoned itself to its own destiny, which turned out to be for two young local developers, who had been looking for the perfect project for quite some time.

The renovation and reinvention of the Bunker began in 2013. Due to the nature of the building, the repair and reconstruction process was slow and meticulous.

The structure was renovated and reused, creating an interior design with a contemporary style.

Wonderful House Embedded in a Hillside in Beverly Hills

By • Jan 25, 2018

Located in a steep and narrow hillside of the famous city of Beverly Hills, in Los Angeles, California, USA, this project presented a series of significant technical challenges in terms of time restraints and the maximum envelope of the building. The design solution was to organize the house and the complex as an extended and attenuated experience that provided a sense of grace and space despite the restrictions.

Aerial view of the spectacular construction surrounded by green vegetation

The owners’ wishes were to create an oasis that focused more on the feeling of intimacy and introspection instead of maximizing views or presenting an extroverted face to the neighborhood.

Pool area

The main structure has been designed on two levels traced along the north-south axis and houses most of the interior spaces. The garage is located at the southern end of the house, where most private areas are located, including the gym.

Entrance with modern glass doors

The entrance was designed to create a sense of retreat into a private environment, leaving the cars and the working world of Los Angeles behind.
In the middle, a pool patio and gardens occupy the heart of the site.
A small light-filled structure functions as a project studio, and a guest house is located at the north end of the site.
