30 housing units in Carrières-sous-Poissy

The operation is located in the ZAC Nouvelle Centralité in Carrières-sous-Poissy, which development was given by EPAMSA to the urban planning agency ANMA.

DU Office Flachgasse – Apartments

The former factory of metal objects Grünwald, built in 1907, was first transformed into a designer furniture store by Matthäus Jiszda in 1981. The building was once again restructured to house the offices of the Viennese branch of Dietrich | Untertrifaller.

Waldgartenstraße Residential

For this small estate in a quiet residential area loosely built up with single-family homes, we have arranged two elongated cubes slightly offset to each other. This ensures both the necessary privacy and unobstructed, wide views. To the north, an inviting, semi-public courtyard opens up the complex, while the play ground is located to the north-east, separated from the private areas. The architecture skilfully plays with the contrast of raw concrete and fine wood structure. The façade is extensively glazed, the balconies offer constructive weather protection and summer thermal insulation. The emphasis on the horizontal, the contrast between closed and open areas and the targeted use of daylight appear unobtrusively elegant. Albre... More

The garden connection

We are always happy to welcome back our clients! We already transformed this Rotterdam family home twice back in 2013 & 2016. Now, we are working on a final intervention that completes this luxury, family home. In 2013, P·A replaced a poorly-constructed rooftop second-floor level with a full, pitched roof form.

Garden City Cavite

The Garden City conceptualizes the use of open areas as gardens with vertically-stacked residential units with greenery hanging vertically through architectural elements. The idea is to return the area occupied by the residential towers in the form of elevated green spaces and pocket green spaces, which creates sightlines and softens edges of the buildings. This allows the development to achieve a high percentage in open or green spaces. The strategic placement of towers between each other allows cross ventilation and promotes passive cooling. Mandarin orchards along the eastern and western wind paths serve as breaks. With varying levels of elevations and open spaces that maximize the vista, the garden city creates a refreshing atmosphere n... More

Riverview Residence

Our next design-build venture with authentic living principles, this custom residence overlooking Ladybird Lake utilizes tricks from local regulatory hurdles to maximize its use and value. The regulations limited the size of the project to a single 550 sf Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU), however, by adding a third detached dwelling structure, and creating basements, we are able to create a 1425 sf multi-unit compound.  ​ Underground conditioned spaces allow us to have a detached sound-proof music studio connected to the master suite via private sunken garden patio. The upper level kitchen-living-dining area share an outdoor garden deck with a detached guest unit. The material palette is as natural as possible including board-form concr... More

1 Living House

1 Living House is a minimalist residence located in Kanagawa, Japan. This is a general renovation of a 40-year-old apartment complex. The floor plan was the plan adopted by many of the estates built at the time, but there was a garden with a small height difference between the indoor floor. In addition, the total length of the indoor and garden area was about 18 meters. In order to make use of this length, the living room has no partitions, and furniture was brought to the east and west walls, so that an open space is put together in the center of the room with a floor plan that allows one to feel the connection to the garden. The living room can be separated by a shoji screen, and it can be changed into a large living space that is complet... More

Zinfandel Lane Garden

Set within one of the oldest Zinfandel vineyards in California, the St. Helena residence floats above the surrounding vines, extending the landscape into the house and pulling life out into the garden.  An olive tree lined gravel driveway frames the entrance, culminating in the oak-lined property edge, where an existing heritage oak anchors the property.  This oak orients the site, marking the central axis of the house, pool and—through the vineyard—the barn.  Salvaged ancient olive trees are integrated into the barn landscape, tying into the reclaimed wood of the barn siding and framing the entrances to the building.  Exuberant perennial plantings frame the trees and provide seasonal interest—Nepeta fl...
