Bronte House II

Bronte House II is an extensive renovation undertaken for bold clients with a sophisticated and contemporary aesthetic. The original house was built in the 1980 by the current owners. Having raised their family there, they wanted to rework the spaces to suit their current lifestyle. The brief was a renovation that would ensure the owners would be happy to spend the rest of their lives there. Flexibility, light and flow of space were essential elements, and ensuring the design is adaptive to the needs of a couple but also the accommodation of larger family gatherings. Dave Wheeler The starting point was reconfiguration of the spaces, removing the stair from the centre of the house and introducing a formal entry vestibule from which all... Mais

Granera, longe o suficiente para perder o serviço de celular, perto o suficiente para chegar lá e voltar para o almoço. Uma quinta centenária, o local ideal para reunir toda a família no verão, no Natal, ou apenas num domingo normal. Esses encontros são a demanda, e a casa da fazenda é o cenário que precisa ser preparado para eles. José Hevia A casa está localizada de costas para a rua e meio subterrânea. Desce-se para uma esplanada onde existe um poço; daí, contornando a casa, entra-se por baixo da pérgula que percorre toda a fachada sul.

ASH House

ASH House is a private house located in a outskirts of a big city. Initial brief when first discussing with the owner is to get a large opening and good air circulation .

Mario Wibowo & Daniel Jiang The entrance area is made to blend in with the landscape so that the material used for the roof is glass. The door used is also not a solid wood door like a house in general but a wooden partition so that air can still flow through the existing gaps. With this door model, air cir... Mais

The Float House

This single-family house is located in a seaside suburban area outside Athens. The building is formed by two volumes; a pale-colored body that hosts the main living and kitchen areas is floating above a stone base that plays host to the users' private rooms and connects the house to the rocky earth. ss.mm design ss.mm design The concept is based on the idea of achieving a dynamic balance between internal needs and external conditions of the shelter structure/organism. The free-floating mass distributes counter-gravity pressure over the grounded volume while the home's passive and active environmental systems are able to be calibrated for optimal interior performance and attenuate any sources of stress for the residents. ss.mm...

Vancouver School of Arts and Academics (VSAA)

Bassetti designed a renovation and addition of the Vancouver School for Arts and Academics (VSAA). Bassetti worked with Vancouver Public Schools to re-orient the front of the school, while adding many important elements such as a new administrative block, additional science laboratories, re-purposing old spaces into new classrooms, a black-box theatre and commons, and a secure courtyard area. In working with stakeholders to understand the needs of the school, it was clear that the renovation needed to increase parking at the school, while also creating new points of entry and exit for a more efficient site design and increased school community.
