A 430m² house that was abandoned and closed for over six years in São Paulo was the scenario found by Felipe de Almeida Studio. In its development, it was necessary to revitalize it to bring back its soul and new stories, without losing its architectural identity, but updating it to a more modern and cozy living.

Blurring the edges between indoors and out, the re-design of this Beverly Hills Residence designed by Abramson Architects focuses on redistributing the home’s layout to create a welcoming internal courtyard. Once inside the entry vestibule, a series of well-composed sightlines establish a simultaneously elegant and informal entry sequence. The lush interior garden is a sanctuary, easily accessible from the kitchen, dining room, and living room. photography by Manolo Langis.

Viewfinder House is a project designed by Faulkner Architects. “Can all of the rooms enjoy this view?” was our client’s question on our first site walk. We were looking at the Pacific Crest of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the distance. This question formed the seed of our conceptual approach to the design of the house. We organized the family-driven program of 7,200 square feet into a simple two-part scheme. The lower-level base follows the street geometry, while the upper levels are twisted slightly to align with the view. The steel base protects the structure from deep winter snows common in the Sierra Nevada and allows the lower-level form to disappear into the grade on the high side of the topography.

Inwood Place is a project designed by Tim Cuppett Architects. When Mid-Century enthusiasts purchased the original 1800sf home, it had long been forgotten about and was nearly re-claimed by the native vegetation of an adjacent creek. The existing house, crammed against the far property line was dwarfed by an apartment complex visible to the rear. Low ceilings and deep overhangs made for a relentlessly dark interior, further diminishing what little appeal remained of the property. Photography by Whit Preston.
Through House is a project designed by Dubbeldam Architecture + Design. The owners of this historic 130-year old home in downtown Toronto’s Annex neighbourhood had an environmentally conscious agenda and a desire for contemporary design. They looked to Dubbeldam Architecture + Design to turn the dark, cramped Victorian interior into a sweeping plan that opens the interior to light, expands the useful living space and draws connections to the rear garden. “Our clients were seeking an alternative to condo living: a small and energy efficient home within walking distance of work and public transit, and with enough room to entertain and accommodate out of town visitors. Within a modest footprint, they are able enjoy a quiet neighbourhood and the pleasures of a modern and light-filled design with a compact garden,” explained principal Heather Dubbeldam.
