casa 15

Every project starts with a client, a place, and a program. This one began with a couple, a conversation, and a model made with the objects that were on the table. At that moment, there was the recognition that the shape that the customers had in mind, even without even knowing it, had been reached. Ivo Tavares Studio Ivo Tavares Studio Ivo Tavares Studio The conversation led to a two-story prototype. The private space models the upper volume, more closed, almost like a shell, and the lower volume creates freedom for the visual field. The user feels free to walk through the common spaces, which creates a greater spatial fluidity. All spaces have details, such as the furniture design, that were thought and integrated in the a...

Milwood Residence

Located in heart of the Venice neighborhood, the Milwood Residence is a 3,800 square foot single-family home created to connect its occupants and their surroundings. Sensible programmatic adjacency and an open floor plan define the spaces at ground level. Occupants can move freely between common spaces which extend to exterior spaces as well as vertically via a central circulation 'void' to the roof deck. The 'void' was achieved via a custom operable skylight which fills the space of the circulation core for the home and allows access to the roof deck. This solved an architectural problem common to homes in the area. Many homes in Venice have roof decks, however, the code only allows a small amount of space to extend above the bui... More
