Nusantara House

Design and materials in Architecture always evolve althrough the passage of time but are still rooted from the  context of the place. Re-embrace elements and principles of houses in Nusantara.

House Be

House Be is an experiment in dwelling in and amongst nature is the central theme. A rhythmic structure in concrete, wood and brick contrasts with the frivolity of the restored landscape.

The structure is filled with large glass surfaces and facade brickwo... Más

Alessandro Imbriaco Once hidden by a thick plaster layer, the brightness of the structure is now clearly revealed, driving the whole concept of the spaces and creating a direct dialogue between structure, form and...

Purple Garden

A three-storey penthouse in Qujiang, Xi’an, from the entrance to the attic, this 422 sqm residence expresses a pure and elegant home. Returning to the basics, designers use a minimalist and modern design style to embrace the true life.

Ren Dong Starting from the oriental philosophy and returning to the basics, the kitchen and dining room are opened, and the transparent doors, large floor-to-ceiling windows and the columns are decorated by natural stone.
