In the Step Down house designed by Bijl Architecture, the original 1910 front rooms and architectural details of timber fretwork, cedar shingles and stained glass have been revived, while a poorly built 1970s lean-to rear addition was removed. Our design strategy brought the new addition right down to the rear garden level, creating the opportunity for an airy pavilion of wide openings, high ceilings and flexible space.

Loft Chartier designed by Studiocolnaghi is a small well-located apartment. It is designed to host a young couple during weekends, so its main purporse is to be as practical as beautiful. The apartment itself has some qualities, like a corner window and a concrete slab. So, those were importante tools to compose the interior design. In order to contrast to the brutalist aspect of the apartament, we design a wood ceilling in the main entrance. So, this element also appear as a wall pannel which hides a door. The wood floor is a tool to create the impression of a bigger space, as we have the same material on the wall and parto of the ceilling. Photography by Vinícius Ferzeli.

VA apartament is a project designed by Michel Macedo Arquitetos. Serving as a model apartment for a residential tower – also an office’s project – this proposal adopts solutions that value the inherent characteristics of the building, such as: A. free plan: where the structure is disposed independently of the walls, allowing layout changes, which in this case expands the living area with a home theater addition; B. free facade: where the large glass facade incorporate the exterior landscape in harmony with the interior; C. natural materials: where the use of wood in joinery and furniture; and marble stones on floors and countertops was chosen. D. circulations: where the access continues as the original proposal, while the new layout brings fluidity to the living room area. Photography by Eduardo Macarios.
Sag Harbor 2 is a project designed by Kevin O’Sullivan + Associates – KOSA. The homeowners scouted properties by boat and came upon the perfect site…amazing sunsets, a protected cove, friendly neighbors, and a gently slope from curbside to waterfront. The elements spoke to them and they decided to build a home for themselves. Photography by Read McKendree.
Bishop’s Stortford is a project designed by Nicola Chambers – Architect. The plot was a tight town centre site in Bishop’s Stortford that originally formed part of the neighbour’s back garden. The site, which slopes in two directions, was accessed through a narrow private access drive which already served three houses. This meant that access for the neighbours would have to be maintained at all times, while at the same time providing all necessary site access down a single track drive. Photography by Owen Davies.
Residence Kin is a project designed by Fu Design and is located in Taiwan New Taipei City. The “epidemic” has changed the life and definition of home. In addition to providing physical protection, home has also become a haven for spiritual rest. In this project, we try to use warm natural colors with a light wood grain to create a space of gentle and slow pace. Visually, we integrate the necessary storage with the wall facade. The hanging design at the bottom adds a touch of lightness to the heavy high cabinet, and each open case can also be regarded as the best toy area and storage area for preschool children.
The Grant Park House by ARCHITECTUREFIRM began with a classic Atlanta craftsman style bungalow in the historic Grant Park neighborhood that was in need of significant repair. The extensive renovation to the roof that was required allowed for a complete reconceiving of the home in plan and section, creating a new sky-lit single volume and wide open living spaces with a lofted floor above the more intimate bed and bath rooms.
