Madrona Passive House

Jabe Blumenthal knows numbers. After graduating from Yale with a degree in Applied Mathematics he joined a little-known software company in the early 80s, Microsoft, and co-designed a little program we now know today as Microsoft Excel.   Jabe also knows climate change. He has served on the board of Seattle-based Climate Solutions for over a decade, advocating for ‘practical and profitable solutions to global warming’ throughout the Pacific Northwest. He also knows a thing or two about the costs and benefits of climate-friendly construction. He served on the board of the Bullitt Foundation when that group planned and built its noted “living building,” the Bullitt Center.   So when Jabe and his family be... More

Villa S

Living in a wooded area calls for a house that has a harmonious relationship with nature.A house is subtly visible amid a wooded and hilly dune landscape. This is Villa S, a house nestled in a picturesque location that has allowed its residents to enjoy beautiful forest views and a calming forest scent since the 1960s. A place that never gets boring. RAU Architects transformed this house into a villa placing nature even more at the forefront, in line with the wishes of the resident family. To create more privacy from the street, the focus is shifted to the garden bordering the coniferous forest. The relationship to the surrounding environment becomes even more intense. Only the contours of the original house have been preserved. The new mo... More

Writer’s Shed

Camouflaged and nestled into a modest residential garden, the Writers Shed provides an isolated workspace for a creative writer. The outbuilding sits in the seldom utilised back corner of the block, located in a quiet, leafy residential suburb in Melbourne's South East. Masquerading itself amongst the garden landscape and boundary fences the shed is one with the landscape – a living part of the garden rather than an imposition on it. The successful coverage of Boston Ivy, accompanied by a collection of lush, verdant plantings was developed in collaboration with Landscape Garden Designer Ben Scott.   Stepping inside, a generous and simple ply clad workspace reveals itself, with a framed window looking back to the garden. A mirro... More

House68

House68 is a private family residence. The house is designed as a series of modern pavilions connected by large open terraces and water gardens. Each pavilion differs programmatically and allows for the large home to be sectionalized. A guest pavilion, an entertainment pavilion, a living pavilion and a service pavilion; each of which functions independently and may be sectionalized and closed off when not in use. This flexibility allows for the house to conform and to adapt to the changing needs of the family.   The design brief required that the house is able to adapt to the changing needs of a growing family for the coming years. The actual members of the family that will be staying in on a daily basis will change when their childr... More

EcoWorld London

EcoWorld London came to Dthree Studio to create a new HQ for their operations within the UK. Having been split between a small site and large serviced office they wanted to be contained within the same building and create a space that encouraged collaboration and a sense of identity. The floor plate was designed to encourage movement and fluidity throughout the space and to encourage the teams to interact with one another at various points, allowing for more agile working practices. The sophisticated colour palette creates a calm atmosphere, conducive to the detail orientated work being carried out by the staff and brings in natural elements, as well as suitable nods to the construction industry through material selection. Feature lighting... More

Project • By TEN ArquitectosLibraries

New York Public Library

In a neighborhood dense with high-end retail, luxury residences, and blue-chip institutions and offices, this 30,000 square foot branch library will fulfill a much-needed role as a public space and a touchstone for the local community and visiting tourists. Despite the library’s site being predominantly below grade and set at the base of a new 40-story hotel, TEN Arquitectos’ design transforms the dark, subterranean space into an inviting, open and light-filled civic landscape in the heart of Manhattan. The architects did not put forth the branch library’s identity via an iconic facade symbolizing the New York Public Library as an institution. Instead, the facade disappears completely to reveal a dynamic internal streetsc... More
