Rottmannsboden_Duplex by KOHLERSTRAUMANN

Situated in a moderately busy street of a calm neighborhood in Binningen – Switzerland, an exquisite semi-detached house is well integrated into a pleasant environment of single and multi-family houses. The project designed by KOHLERSTRAUMANN aimed to integrate two distinct users of double housing into one building. As a result, the form of the building reflects the unique design of two different users accommodated in a single house structure that fulfills the needs of both the users. The house forms a part of a diverse hub of public amenities with schools, commercial shopping facilities, and public transportation located in closer proximity for the users to access conveniently.

Santos Pousada Apartment by Hinterland Architecture Studio

Santos Pousada Apartment designed by Hinterland Architecture Studio is located on the top floor of a building designed by Portuguese mid-century architects Arménio Losa and Cassiano Barbosa. Built in 1956 as a rental unit building the last floor was originally planed as an exterior semi public space. During the original construction this space was adapted to two symmetrical apartments, repeating the scheme of the remaining floors. This programmatic change is responsible for some of the most singular formal elements of the apartment, the concrete structural elements and the size of the windows that represent 55% of the facade surface area.

Modern hill side retreat by LaRue Architects

The LaRue’s loved the location of the 24-unit 1980’s condo complex – a 1-2 story semi-detached affair — overlooking the golf course. But the unit was in dire need of an update, and they wanted an modern, urban feel. LaRue took the unit down to the frame model giving a complete re-design of the existing plan adding a new bedroom addition and a new porch. The townhome is now 2,000 SF of living space. The addition of the covered patio was key – and features an in-ground spa and a private view of landscape hillside bluff and Texas Hill Country. Photography by Chase Daniels.
