A Residence for Three Families in a Bustling Urban Setting: Integrating North Light and Cultural Connection Tripleopixel Tripleopixel Tripleopixel The residence we're showing is evidence that functionality, elegance, and a deep awareness of the surroundings can all coexist. The building was situated in a confined urban area, therefore the initial challenge was to construct a sensible floor plan that could fit all the needs inside a 40'x40' plot. Due to the neighbourhood's high population, where most residences had problems receiving natural light and ventilation, this undertaking was made more challenging. This restriction was also in place at the client's previous home. Tripleopixel Tripleopixel Tripleopixel... More

A signature ergonomically curved brick wall defines the Mutu Loka cafe in Bandung, Indonesia

Founded in 2022, the Mutu Loka cafe, designed by Aaksen Responsible Aarchitecture, drew inspiration from the evolution of Cilaki 33 and its juxtaposition of outdated contemporary lifestyle with modern design elements.

Transformation lourde d’une villa années 1970

In the first phase of studies, several options were considered. Faced with the poor quality of the construction, symptomatic of the 1970’s, as well as a constraining construction system, the owners favored a variant of heavy transformation: the above ground part was demolished, leaving only the basement and the existing concrete invert. On these existing supports, a new monolithic brick construction proposes new volumes, more generous and better adapted to the owners’ demands.   The project reinterprets a traditional building language, with materials and a classical composition that favors large openings on the landscape. On the first floor, the plan contracts all the distributions by integrating them with the living spac... More

Casa DH20

The first time we visited the DH20 HOUSE it was ruined. However, it was obvious that the house had many possibilities.   It was a very luminous house located in the historic center of Madrid, but in a quiet street. It occupied the last floor of the building and opened to a large block courtyard.   The client wanted to make a reform for their subsequent rental, so it was essential that the finishes were resistant and durable, without appearing cold or impersonal. That was the main reason why ceramic flooring was installed in beautiful spike veined gray, throughout the space. To counteract, an exhaustive work was carried out to recover existing elements, which became the main protagonists of the project.   On the one hand... More

Canal house Amsterdam

On one of Amsterdam’s most beautiful canals in the Jordaan, an old deprecated warehouse from the 18th century had already been shut down for many years. We were asked by the two residents to design a home of allure and equipped with all modern conveniences. The surface area of ​​approximately 50 m2 and 5 floors forced us to think carefully about the location of the functions and the routing through the building. The location of the various stairs was the biggest challenge for us. These are very detailed and positioned that they form a self-evident division of the living functions while maintaining the open character. This results in daylight far into the house.

Building make-up

 Make-up of a building of the 60s used as a business for the sale and exhibition of furniture and furnishings. Simple vertical and horizontal lines become the main theme of this restructuring, alternating in a game of verticality and linearity that brings the building back to life with a non-invasive restyling. The wide front wall with facing bricks remains almost unaltered from the intervention, on which large white sun bricks rise up, accentuating the verticality concealing the existing openings without eliminating the light. The upper part binds to the underlying one thanks to vertical elements in painted aluminum that follow the lines, and then develop horizontally in the gray base, highlighting the large showroom windows, joined t...

桃舍 PEACH HOUSE, Beijing

刘家小院 桃舍 PEACH HOUSE, Beijing– Rural housing construction owes little to the State and household savings even enable to build private ownership. By allowing the purchase of materials from local manufacturers and artisans, self-built housing construction is prevalent in rural areas. Private property goes back to the agricultural reform of the 1950s, which did not succeed in establishing collective habitations, but reaffirmed the notion of private property as the expression of the work of the family. They are the homes of peasants – inherited or built with domestic savings. The courtyard house in North China constitutes a form of housing which is the result of a long process of interaction between the built form and social, economic, and cultu... More
