During the first visit to the place, the team already realized that this project would be special. Located in a fantastic enclave, the plot had the ideal characteristics for designing the perfect home for our customers. The resulting design complements the pre-existing volume without taking away its prominence. One of the premises of the clients was to dedicate part of the built volume to house their esteemed collection of vintage cars and motorcycles. Following this pretext, the volumes were organized in such a way that they mixed together, giving privacy to the spaces and a place of 'continuous exhibition' for their collection. The project consists of 3 volumes: the main body, where the heart of the house is located, a longitudinal volume for service areas and another one opening to the exterior. The first of them maintains the character of the constructions of the area, while the other two blocks extend into the space giving way to a much more modern and blunt materiality. #architecturegram #architecture_best #archi_unlimited .

Guests coming up the front steps of this hilltop home are met with a Carrera marble sculpture by Richard Erdman, titled Serenade, selected by our clients, whose devotion to the process made this an especially joyful collaboration. Also part of the team were Robert Wright and Jason York of McCormick and Wright, who did the interior design. There are a lot of details and non-standard finishes in this house - personal taste, not trendy taste. The dark-grey rough stacked-slate exterior is capped with crisply contrasting white stucco. A pivot-style all-glass front door and surround welcomes you to the modern West Coast lifestyle, framing a view through the house to the hills beyond. The central open volume topped by a skylight is Marc Whipple’s modern take on the traditional courtyard. He took the courtyard, and sunk it so that all the below-grade rooms open off of it, transforming what normally would be a dark basement into a lower floor with light and views – the anti-basement. The large skylight pulls the dramatic focus upwards as well, so this vertical volume contains both dynamics seen while crossing the glass bridge. #architecturegram #modernarchotecturedesign #designersparadise #dreamhomes #beverlyhills #califorinahomes #californiaarchitecture

An old village theatre built in the late nineteenth century and converted over time first in a barn and then in a toilet paper warehouse is now transformed to operate as a live/work space. “The Theatre” (name that has maintained the building despite the change in its uses) is located in the geographical heart of Barcelona at the buoyant tech district 22 @ in the Poblenou neighbourhood. A few meters away from Diagonal Avenue and the new Central Park of the Glorias. The project aims to recover and capitalize the spatial and constructive values of the old theatre. Expose its tectonic essences and exploit the amplitude that gives the great height of its large diaphanous central space. The access area is divided through a small hall in 3 independent areas: 2 studios -one in each of the sides- and in the middle the access to the house. The studios are illuminated by two large windows that establish a direct relationship with the street and recover the original facade of the theatre. The studios have a double height space in the front part and in the back part a mezzanine on the upper floor and an area for a kitchen and a bathroom on the ground floor. The access to the house is through a space reserved for a classic car that is understood as a sculpture. A piece of art in direct relationship with the central space of the house. The original sliding doors of the facade invaded the windows of the studios so they are replaced by metal swing doors. The large original wooden doors are then relocated as the mediator between the access/parking area and the central space of the house.

A play of geography, geometry, and light, the Crescent House is a singular, undulating sculpture that weaves through lush, coastal gardens and crescendoes with enchanting views across Sydney Harbour. The clients had long awaited to build their dream home for their young family. They chose the site for the northern aspect, panoramic vistas and direct access to Sydney Harbour foreshore. The brief was to create a future-ready home that captured various opportunities to entertain, relax and rest amongst gardens and harbor views. The house appears as an unfolding white form, edged by garden courtyards and green roofs. The interplay of sharp lines, refined detail and radial curves creates a sense of sculptural ease and subtle purity as it engages with the site and harbor foreshore. Once entered, the house is experienced as a sequence of volumes through mass, concrete, and whiteness. Playful plasticity of the form provides thoughtful connections across various spaces and landscaped areas as you transverse through to the living spaces. Skylights, openings, and voids dramatize light and shadow that highlight the refined selection of materials; predominantly concrete, brass and rendered white masonry. The muted palette of materials is a canvas for greenery and artwork to be displayed encouraging life and character within.

Located on a hill, the project is displaced through two volumes, impacting the smallest possible surface and almost without altering the terrain, the existing vegetation of oaks and copal trees is respected. The compositional scheme of the volumes responds to different levels, burying itself to the south and flying towards the north, so the project gets a direct dialogue with nature. According to the identified needs of the project, a public space that is directly related to the environment is generated, creating transparency towards the horizon, which allows having an internal-external relation. On the other hand, the private volume generates a cave aspect, a refuge, merging into the mountain, getting a shelter atmosphere. The articulation of the volumes is solved with a steel and glass hallway, fulfilling the function of connecting the public and private areas in different levels, both inside and outside, causing a vacuum in the mountain. The tectonics of the project as a core point is to create mimesis between the context and the architectural intervention, dissolving on the site.

The A.B Residence design was based on the use of metallic structures. This decision allowed the acceleration of the construction process. The metallic structure was kept apparent as according to the whole architectural proposal adopted. Wood veneers, natural stones and metal sheets were incorporated into the project, helping to define the volumes and making the spaces more welcoming. Each floor of the residence has different levels of visual integration. The subsoil was implanted through a cut on the ground, allowing it to become more ventilated. The ground floor, where the social areas are placed, has large aluminum and glass frames, bringing the landscaping into the environments and widening them visually. The layout of the balcony and the leisure area creates a great open space of conviviality. On the upper floor, made up of a large suspended volume, the closings with wooden furniture brises ensure greater privacy, according to the needs of the residents.

This house stands in a new residential district in the mountains, which was put up for sale in the 1990s. The region has a slightly cool and wet climate, when looking at the other houses in the vicinity; you can see that many of them feature lean-to-sheds, designed as small sunrooms, made by enclosing a back entrance or veranda with corrugated polycarbonate panels. These so-called ‘terrace enclosures’ are often used as storehouses in winter, or as places for drying laundry – a clever feature, that we realized represents, a certain style shared among the various new mass-produced houses of this residential district. We used these terrace enclosures as inspiration for the materials and functions of our sunroom. We also incorporated a wide-eaved terrace and other semi-outdoor spaces into the interior of the house. Our expectation was that these would act as interfaces between the surrounding environments.

This is a private residence project for a family in District 10, Ho Chi Minh City. Our client is a gentleman who lives abroad and had requested to build a house for his mother, Mrs. Nga, and her family currently living in Vietnam. The area has a particularly high building density in the city, with several 1 to 3-story buildings constructed in close proximity to each other. According to Mrs. Nga, who has been living in the area for over 40 years, the land used to be forested. Currently, her residence is a small house which lies among a tangled web of narrow alleys of only 1-2 meters in width. If a typical house were to be built on this site, it might face the challenge of not getting in enough light as the neighbor constructions will cast shadows over it, resulting in a dark and damp space.

The fig tree represents the starting point for this project, putting it in evidence and respecting its pre-existence on the ground. The roots of the tree were preserved in their entirety, shifting the foundations of the building to the side in a minimal impact area. The composition of the main facade is a tuning of contrasts between the rigidity of the concrete, the fig tree that gives its name to the house and the great rock that simulates the support of the volume, honouring a strong element of the regional landscape. In contrast to the sturdiness of the upper block, the lightness of the free space at the pedestrian level provides the transparency needed to contemplate the scene. The facade facing the street serves as a blockade of the south wind. The sunshine and sight are therefore facing the opposite direction, to the north, maximising the contact with the channel water, energy efficiency and privacy. This resulted in a clean facade preserving the integrity of the volume.

This house is located within a heritage conservation area within the suburb of Hunters Hill, close to the centre of Sydney. The site and surrounding properties are typically freestanding homes on medium and larger sized garden blocks. The existing house is an exceptional example of an Australian period home circa 1927. A 1980’s renovation existed to the rear of the house which did not fit the current owner’s requirements and expectations of family moving into the future. The primary brief was to create a more modern, open plan layout to the rear with some modification to the existing internal bedrooms to the front. The neighbouring home has a position so that the entertainment area backs directly onto the rear of the subject property, creating a privacy issue for both dwellings. The concept of a “blinker” between these two zones was discussed which assisted practically the division of these two areas creating privacy and also leading to an architectural direction of the rear façade. Due to the width of the rear addition and requirement for sun amenity to push into the new open plan area, highlight glazing was introduced to achieve adequate solar and ventilation amenity to the living spaces.

TM House is located in the state of Colima, Mexico, within a lot of regular topography and geometry, and a surface of 11,670 sq. m. The project consists of a 769 sq. m. single story residence for a family of 4 members. The premise of the project was to integrate the diverse phenomenologies inspired on the tropical paradise of the Mexican pacific, in order to create a residence that constantly refers to unending vacation. Three key aspects were turning points for the conception of the architecture: climate, topography, and context. With average temperatures of 25°C, ascending up to 50°C, and with a relative humidity seldom dropping beneath 75%, heat was a major concern.

This second home project aimed particularly at leisure and socializing in one of the beach condos south of Lima, posed the challenge of intensive temporary habitation and the opportunity to reinterpret a historical prototype: Maison Domino by Le Corbusier. The building standards for the small semi isolated lot of 15x8 meters in the middle of an artificial oasis, only allowed the construction of single storey house plus a roof terrace to ensure the enjoyment of the "essential joys": sun, space, vegetation and the view over the desert landscape between the Isle of Asia and the coastal foothills of the Andes. The recreational use of the house by owners and guests during the summer weekends contrasts with minimal use during the rest of the year, so the program stratification should facilitate the opposed nature of the project: External during summer and private during winter. Thus, the proportion of public places are distributed hierarchically in the expanded mode from the roof terrace to the basement, with the first floor as intermediate level housing a minimum bedroom area for its proper operation in a compact mode.
