Nantou Hybrid Building

Nantou, where a hidden millennia-old town and a vibrant urban village collide and integrate, has been simultaneously written in the grand national narrative of Shenzhen Hong Kong’s relationship while living the trivial daily life for over 20 years. In early 2016, URBANUS was invited to conduct a comprehensive spatial study of Nantou Old Town, a quintessential example of Shenzhen's urban and cultural heritage spanning various historical periods. Through historical documents and field research URBANUS developed a regeneration strategy focused on rejuvenating Nantou through incremental revitalization that impacts larger clusters with micro-scale interventions, as well as organizing cultural events. In 2017, URBANUS served as the curatori... Meer

Een burgerlijk appartement in een rationalistisch gebouw aan het Piazza Sant'Ambrogio in Milaan dat dialogeert met verschillende tijdperken.

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... Meer

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. Evenbeeld Evenbeeld Location was also a non-issue: a southeast-facing urban garden with a view of a church, a walking park, and two beautiful old beech trees meant no concerns about rear neighbors. Evenbeeld Evenbeeld The two outdated apartments were transformed into a single-family home, crowned with an additional floor during the renovation. This not only harmonized with the streetscape but also provided the opportunity to opt... Meer

Open Concept Staircase

A compartmentalized 1960s home was overdue for an update, and the team from Model Remodel got to designing the flow of the kitchen and main floor. The homeowners received a modernized kitchen, additional storage, and a repositioned basement stairway that is now a beautiful architectural feature. During discussions about traffic flow, it was determined that moving the stairs to the basement was a goal. This repositioning would make for easier access to the basement from anywhere on the first floor and make the living space feel bigger. The Banker Wire P-286 pattern in a bare brass material was paired with the custom walnut stairway for continuity. The stairway is now both an architectural feature and a custom shelving unit. Leaving the bras... Meer

Higashihongō House

Higashihongō is one of the neighbourhoods in the north side of Yokohama City. The development of the residential area began during the 1960s with a multitude of two-storeys houses. After opening the nearby train line, a rapid increase in population forced the administration to heavily invest on new housing construction using quick and cheap modular lightweight metal structures. Akira Nakamura The result of it is an extended urban texture where every building is almost identical to the next one, and no real landmark stands out from the mass. The lack of exterior creativity induced the landowner to push the quality enhancement of the interior ambience. Akira Nakamura Higashihongō House is part of this development and was originall...

Upstanding coffee

Kiwoong Hong Kiwoong Hong ‘Shinheung-market’ is a place that was a symbol of reckless development in the past in ‘Haebangchon’, an old shabby neighbourhood in Seoul. We thought about how to build a space for a young coffee brand here and decided to apply new finishes while maintaining the original appearance rather than inserting a new structure and form into the space. The project started with the goal of telling a new story while respecting local and environmental contexts. Kiwoong Hong Caption Caption   Kiwoong Hong The space was very tight, and there were several structural and functional deficiencies as a commercial place. First of all, we cleared safety issues for people can... Meer
