hidden face

The cabin echoes our early construction experiences. Here, we are developing the shelter around a unique material: wood. The material allows integration and discretion in the landscape. The rhythm is mimetic. The composition is enough to shelter from the wind, looks, or rain. This simple gesture creates a limit, an invitation and a panorama. The trees and the shelter don’t touch each other but interact and create vertical and horizontal limits. Caption The gap in between the two walls invites the walker to enter the shelter. Inside, the atmosphere is warm, you can stand, sit, lie down, rest. The trees foliage filters the sun rays. Our imagination is summoned, reminds us of childhood memories. Sitting, leaning against the wall, o... En savoir plus

Cartier House

A hyphen between past and present, the Cartier project is a testament to a couple’s dedication to honour the architectural heritage of a quaint cottage in the Plateau Mont-Royal by giving it a second life. Compact and nestled on a city lot with restrained proportions, including a narrow lateral passage and a small green inner courtyard, the original house presented some challenges for its expansion. Meeting the clients’ desire to connect the indoor spaces to the exterior spaces without losing the home’s existing charm and intimacy would be no small feat. The architectural response thus articulated itself around a balance of old and new with conservation and modernization treatments of the exterior facades and of the home&... En savoir plus

BST House

Total: 800 m².Plot 1.50 hectare ⠀  Can you reveal the name "BST House"? What is the reason for the name, what is the associative row in the name? BST is an abbreviation for "Binary search tree", our client works in IT + house is located on a 1.5 ha forest plot, by associating these two facts we got this name.

Their main wish was to get a house + a guest house with a garage in a modern style and to p... En savoir plus

Kahshe Lake Cottage

The story of Kahshe Lake Cottage started in 1987, when the parents of Solares’s own Tom Knezic bought the water-access property and built a small bunkie as a temporary shelter. Their goal was to then design and build their dream family cottage. When the 1989 recession hit, their plans went on hold. In 2015, Tom’s father passed away, and his mother decided that it was time to finish what they had started. The bunkie still sits on the original property, surrounded by outdoor projects created over the years, including the firepit, slack lines, bike trails, even a hammock zone. The new cottage is sited on the neighbouring property to the north, acquired more recently for this project. The site is full of forest and Canadian Shield... En savoir plus

The Dream Lab

The "Dream Lab" transforms a 1830s cottage in Parramatta - a former lolly shop - into a dream-like, fluid, continuous space for writing workshops and storytelling to encourage creativity in kids in western Sydney. LAVA and the Glue Society have collaborated again to create a visionary space for the Story Factory, a not-for-profit creative writing centre for young people.   Chris Bosse, director of LAVA, said: “The architectural concept was to connect the four separate rooms in this heritage building with a continuous ribbon, to promote creative thinking with non linear solutions. Like pouring a bucket of creativity into the spaces, it flows throughout the rooms and splashes out onto the street.” ‘Dream Lab’ br... En savoir plus

Pest Cottage

A new generation reimagines a piece of family history – Pest CottageOn-site of the family compound was a former work shed that had been converted into a sparse, yet beautifully located cottage, fondly reserved for unruly grandchildren to let loose. The latest generation to oversee the grounds saw potential to make the little retreat something modern and much more comfortable. The goal was to renovate the space without losing the original character or designing over family nostalgia.   Choosing moments that matter mostA very tight budget required being selective with changes that would have the greatest impact within the 950 sq ft space. Doors and windows were enlarged, allowing both light and views to become more prominent... En savoir plus

Un modeste cottage édouardien situé dans une rue calme de la banlieue de Melbourne à Thornbury a été transformé en une maison familiale spacieuse et lumineuse.   L'objectif du projet était de conserver le charme original du cottage tout en le transformant en une maison fonctionnelle et accueillante.   La configuration intérieure existante a été réorganisée en un agencement plus fonctionnel : la chambre principale à l'avant du logement a été conservée mais une nouvelle salle de bain a été ajoutée pour offrir des commodités supplémentaires.  Deux autres chambres sont empilé...

The Shieling

Internal rearrangement and extension to a historic cottage in a beautiful rural conservation village.   What was the brief? Having recently bought this charming old cottage in the heart of Fintry’s conservation area, our clients’ initial aspiration was to create a glass box pointing at the view: the Campsie Fells.   Together, we decided on a warmer solution to building in rural Scotland. We looked at the roof as a piece of Origami, with a glass clerestory below – protecting those views the homeowners were keen to elevate   What were the key challenges? Early liaison with Stirling Council Planning Department led us to a proposal that preserved elements defining the conservation area, like the white ha... En savoir plus

Maison CP

Reinterpretation of traditions: building a house in Baden (France) The French municipality of Baden, located in the heart of the Gulf of Morbihan Regional Natural Park, offers a quality of life that is hard to find. In order to preserve and highlight the cultural and natural heritage, the buildings are obliged to follow strict regulations. Therefore, the main guide when designing this project by l’Atelier d’Ici was the compliance with existing rules. The developers and owners also had a couple of key ideas of their own: a contemporary house with plenty of light and large volumes of space.Twisting the tradition The local requirements dictate a number of the characteristics of the traditional cottages in this area of the French...

Old Redford Cottage

Old Redford Cottage is a 16th Century thatched farm cottage located in Peasmarsh, East Sussex. The project involved restoring the original cottage and renovating both the interior and exterior, then adding a new contemporary side extension.   The extension is connected via a frameless glass link which leads into a large kitchen dining space with glazing to the garden terrace. The gardens are substantial and vary in level, so the new extension has been partially sunken into the ground to reduce its impact and reference the elevation lines of the existing cottage. This is emphasised by the cladding details, which combines a horizontal bank and vertical band of bleached white larch to line through with the line of the existing thatched... En savoir plus

Curtain Cottage

A cramped, dark and damp Victorian workers’ cottage is transformed into a light-filled, flowing and uplifting home, while referencing original features of the house. The project is unique in that the architect was also its builder, so this provided the opportunity to test out ambitious ideas and their consequence during construction. One of the special aspects about this project is the play of contrasts between the modest facade and what lies inside. Like a veil of camouflage, the front gives nothing away of its contents and remains perfectly anonymous.   BriefA professional couple asked us to breathe new life into their recently purchased Victorian of 60m2. Due to budget constraints, all changes had to be made inside the exist... En savoir plus
