LRVO House extension

In the Preux district, on the edge of Saint-Herblain, France, 1980's identical houses line up, only distinguished by their pale colors. Carefully placed above the garage, the LRVO extension takes advantage of the orientation of the plot and extends the house toward the road, facing west. A simple, one-piece volume, radically wrapped in wood cladding, on the walls as well as on the roof, dialogues with the pavilion. Like a sketch of an archetypal house, this new living space is part of the existing building through a fine dialogue with the current roof slopes. Delicately placed on the garage, the timber frame project contrasts in its materiality, without however erasing the particular geometry of the pavilion which supports it. Inside, VOU... Altro

Eco, biobased villa near Amsterdam, Netherlands

The house has been designed according to the sustainable principles of biobased, ecological construction. In the design and construction of this house, we carefully looked at the orientation, the sun and the usual wind direction (for example, for the possibilities for night ventilation). The sun has a lot of influence on the shape and the layout. The house is constructed from a vapour permeable timber frame construction system, delivered on site as prefabricated elements. All the insulation materials above the ground are natural.   The plots are relative small in this project. The neighbouring home is relative close by and provide much shade in winter. The clients have therefore chosen not to create a roof overhang on the south... Altro

Ha'ne Sushi

The brief for Hane Sushi was simple, just like the design intent - design a fresh, clean, contemporary and simple setting for a new sushi train restaurant in Eaton’s Hill Village. We worked closely with the client to develop a paired back, light and airy aesthetic, quite different from other Sushi Restaurants they had done before. By keeping the material palette and colour selections minimal, we were able to work within the client’s budget. We carefully selected finishes that enhanced moments in the plan, like the warm Tasmanian oak timber frame over the sushi bar, which really works to frame the action going on within the sushi bar, and highlight the food on the sushi train. While the organic nature of the varied coloured blue... Altro

Brixton Windmill Education and Community Centre

Squire & Partners hanno completato un nuovo Centro educativo e comunitario adiacente al Brixton Windmill for Friends of Windmill Gardens (FoWG) e al Lambeth Council. Il centro sosterrà le attività ospitate dall'edificio del patrimonio storico di grado II* e ne garantirà l'uso per le generazioni future.   Storia del Mulino a Vento di Brixton Il mulino a vento di Brixton è una struttura di grado II*, costruita nel 1816 come mulino a farina funzionante - localmente noto come Ashby's Mill dal nome della famiglia di mugnai - situato all'interno dei Windmill Gardens alla fine dei Blenheim Gardens, appena fuori Brixton Hill.   Il mulino cessò la produzione nel 1934 e fu aperto al pubblico per l...

Amenia farmhouse renovation

Located on a pastoral piece of property in Amenia, NY, this 200 year old farmhouse oozes with charm and grace. Old timbers line the ceilings, wide floorboards are worn by decades of use, and eccentric moments are scattered throughout. Although stately and proud, the existing home showed its age: walls sagged, floors sloped, and an ill-conceived addition felt like a disjointed accessory. Perhaps most notably, the home lacked any relationship to the beautiful property. Rather, the home cocooned its users in intimate, dark interiors — charming on a snowy winter day, but less so on a glorious summer evening.   My clients bought the farmhouse in 2000 as a country getaway from New York City. Over the course of many summers and weeken... Altro

House AD

La casa unifamiliare AD si trova ai piedi delle Dolomiti di PolhovGradec, nei pressi della capitale Lubiana. Il suo design architettonico segue i contorni esistenti del terreno in pendenza. Ci sono due viste completamente diverse dell'edificio che si sviluppa sia dal piano seminterrato che dal piano terra. Affacciandosi alla parte a un piano, si rivelano due masse perpendicolari interconnesse. I due volumi sono collocati in cima al paesaggio verde e coperti da un tetto verde piatto, avvolto da una metalfascia dettagliata, mentre la forma dell'edificio può essere finalmente osservata in tutta la sua estensione dal piano interrato - la delicata struttura superiore con spazi di alloggio è sostenuta da una base quasi interamente i...

Tree House

The owners wanted to upgrade an internally awkward and dark middle suburban Californian Bungalow into a light, modern 3 bedroom + study residence.There was a small group of huge trees in the backyard that the owners loved, so they became integral to the design of the new addition. The rear extension has substantial north facing windows that utilise these existing trees for shading from the summer sun. An angled eave overhang is provided for these windows where there are no trees to offer shading.   The extension was conceived as a single volume of efficient construction. It has a simple flat roof with interconnected spaces differentiated by changes in floor level that follow the sloping site. The rear decks also terrace downward towa... Altro

Jar Church

Nel corso del XX secolo, le chiese si trasformano da sedi di funzioni domenicali a edifici multiuso e passano a esprimere il modernismo internazionale in cemento, spesso con forme e funzioni non tradizionali, e non più i solenni movimenti nazionali come il Liberty e il neobarocco.Negli anni ’50 si sviluppano nuove attività parrocchiali, creando il bisogno di edifici di tipo diverso. In parte ispirate al movimento delle piccole chiese, si affermano ora le chiese attive con, oltre all’interno della chiesa vero e proprio, uffici, sale riunioni e spazi per attività. Si diffondono così le chiese progettate con pareti a soffietto, per consentire di collegare la navata a sale adiacenti.Grazie a questi svil... Altro

Chalfont

La proprietà è immediatamente confinante con la Riserva Naturale di Rye, uno dei più importanti siti di conservazione della Gran Bretagna. Il sito è formato da depositi di tegole ondulate formatesi man mano che il mare si ritirava nel corso dei secoli. La proprietà esistente era un piccolo bungalow di 2 stanze con una collezione di capanni in vari stati di degrado collegati al bungalow.   Non è stato possibile ristrutturare l'edificio esistente e quindi il nostro compito è stato quello di creare un edificio moderno che rispondesse al contesto unico della riserva naturale. Il sito si affaccia, dall'altra parte della riserva, sull'edificio Mary Stanford Lifeboat. Si tratta di un edificio... Altro

Haiku House

Located on a bluff overlooking the San Francisco Bay, Haiku House is the centerpiece of a unique property in Tiburon, CA consisting of four structures including a main house, guesthouse, beach house and garage dispersed among native and exotic plant gardens that extend from Paradise Dr. down to the Bay.   The main house was a kit house based on a Minka, a traditional Japanese farmhouse and sold by Haiku Houses. Haiku Houses were constructed using a round log timber frame supporting a large hipped tile roof and typically elevated above the ground. This particular home had a Douglas Fir structural frame, combed spruce ceilings and redwood paneling throughout the interior.   The steep concrete driveway and small auto court w... Altro

Modo Pento

L'attico modernista jazzistico (Modo Pento) è stato fin dall'inizio una delizia per il design e un piacere sensoriale. Situato all'ultimo livello di un mattone marrone marsupiale di tre piani, di colore marsupiale, senza ascensore, a St Kilda, il cliente si è divertito con un buffet di immagini di antipasti della metà del secolo scorso come fonte di ispirazione. Cocktail di gamberi, salumi arrotolati, gelatine e crostate di alce abbinati a Tupperware hanno fornito un'infinità di texture, colori e forme tra cui scegliere.   Per lo più orientata a nord, questa casa nel cielo era stata ristrutturata all'inizio degli anni 2000, con lavori importanti in tutto il suo complesso e l'aggiunta di un secondo s...

Spinnaker

The site’s topography, orientation, exposure to the elements and neighbours, define the building’s form. The building responds through systems of blocking and filtering: walls of sliding glass, screens, and large scale automated clerestories The resultant form and spatial dynamics are reminiscent of a full sail, a Spinnaker.   The primary form of the house is accessed via a bridge from the pedestrian entry and carport. The bridge provides a framed view to Hervey Bay, and plays with the concept of leaving terra firma and boarding a vessel. The entire upper level is one large open plan, column free living, dining, kitchen and entertaining area. Large timber framed sliding doors open to expansive decks, featuring integrated... Altro
