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. The kitchen is on the first floor where the dining table is in contact wi... More

KIST Smart U-Farm

ReflectionSite ArrangementThe so-called Smart U-Farm, which is the Gangneung branch of Korea Institute of Science and Technology, is located at the entry of Gangneung Science and Industry Complex. While the pre-existing topography for the Complex was cut off to create a flat land to build factories, the Smart U-Farm was laid out not to compromise the surrounding landscape so that the main road runs along the North-South axis between the left and right buildings, cherishing the memory of the land in the midst of pinewood. At the first layout, the Gangneung branch was to be located at the back of the mechanical room which is now occupying the western part of the building: at the early phase, the Smart U-Farm had been approached indeed as a ve...

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

almosthome®

Full interior renewal, Madrid, Spain. Intervention by fündc. Emptying and peeling from the inside an old tacky house can have nice&lofty results... Erasing, cleaning, demolishing or peeling are also tools for interior renewal. Leaving the skeleton seen and starting anew can reveal virtues that were previously denied.
