CA South Offices

A historic building, once the shipping department for a local food company in Nashville, was restored to house the offices of CA South Development. To extend the building’s life cycle and preserve its character, the existing building was adapted to meet the current needs of a workplace. Paul Vu - Here And Now Agency Paul Vu - Here And Now Agency While much of the building’s structure was preserved, new elements were introduced at the interior to support the company’s collaborative and fast-paced culture. Private offices and break-out spaces with glass partitions featuring dichroic film were added to create moments of transparency and color.

Creemore Farm

The Creemore Farm is a frugal renovation and 85m2 extension to a turn of the century farmhouse north of Toronto, overlooking rolling hills and expansive views. The addition reorients the whole house toward the view, presenting tall panoramic corner windows in the sitting area at the ground floor, and the master bedroom at the second floor, both framing the vista to the Southeast. The project proposes a total reconsideration of the house orientation, proportion and form within a tiny and efficient floor plate to create a lofty, light space that uses its relationship to the landscape to make it feel larger than it is. Peter Legris Photography The new floor plate was founded on, and overhangs the foundation of the previous addition freei... Más

When we were approached for the interior design of the lobby of the medical laboratory, we were restricted so that we could not make fundamental changes in the placement of the spaces. The space consisted of a relatively long entrance corridor, a blood sampling space that was separated from the lobby by a partition, and a secretary's desk, and all these spaces must have remained in the same place as they were. pejman tayebi pejman tayebi pejman tayebi pejman tayebi Since the client wanted to start the renovation process without any downtime in the project, it was possible to execute it only on holidays. And this doubled the design challenge: we had to think about the construction process while designing In addition, we... Más

1. Previous state The site was a dead-end of space on the lower level of the Fabiani Bridge in Ljubljana. The bridge runs on two levels, with a four-lane motorway on the upper level, and a pedestrian bridge on the lower level. The structural characteristics of the bridge formed a pocket of unused, untraversed space under the bridge. Soon after the opening of the bridge, this space became a gathering spot for illegal drug use, homeless sleeping (despite a homeless shelter operating less than 100m away), and crime. Caption Miran Kambič The bridge was built in a gap formed by a partial demolition of the complex of the former sugar factory, called Cukrarna. This partial demolition of the factory complex was urbanistically necessary... Más

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the owners purchased this former multi-family dwelling without ever setting a foot inside. A dilapidated structure, yet with a charming facade; envisioning a complete renovation meant the building could be tailored entirely to their preferences.
