This commission involved the renovation and conversion of two duplex apartments into one single residence/retreat. The two existing external stairs were removed and replaced by a single internal staircase. This intervention made it possible to create one large outdoor area and maximise the existing view. The steel canopies and wooden sun terraces act as visual links between the two original living units. Dupli Dos is a project designed by JUMA architects in collaboration with Minimum Arquitectura.
The new “Authentic Interior” design studio designer’s owner Aida Šniraitė creation – monochromatic 50m2 apartment in an emerging neighbourhood in Vilnius, Lithuania is created for a single woman with strong tastes for industrial and urban US design, but with a quite limited budget. Very unusual colour combinations for conservative Lithuanians, as black doors and plinths, original concrete ceilings or black furniture. Inspired by industrial and urban US living, concrete, bricks, metal have been used without moderation. Apartment is divided into a living area of 30m2, a big shower zone of 6m2, a bedroom of 14m2. Proposed mood boards have been accepted and did not change throughout the design process.
Hudson Woods designed by Lang Architecture is a collection of 26 dwellings on 131 forested acres in the Catskills region of upstate New York. Homes and accessory structures on the property are integrated into the natural landscape, and individual lots becomes compositions of built elements responsive to specific site conditions. Structures are modest upon approach and open to large volumes upon entry and circulation to the living space. A window wall and large punched window openings connect indoor spaces to a dramatic outdoor landscape of mountains and forest.
