Private residence, Foggia, Italy

This modern house with a magnificent view of the Apulian coast features modernist architecture that deliberately gives a nod to local building traditions in its use of pale stone for the dry-stone walls and the external paving, and the predominance of soft colours for the wall surfaces. Architect Ciro Alfredo Matarante, who oversaw this project, chose lighting fixtures with a 3000K white light for the outdoor areas, most of them in a white finish to blend with the colours of the main building and the guest annexes. The entrance to the house is marked by two staircases located on either side of the building: the one closer to the garden area is lit with Bright 1.B, in a double-beam version with 60° radial optics, and single-beam w...

Whistler House

This house is 3900 square feet over three levels in Whistler, BC. The owners are a very active family of four and relocated from Vancouver to make Whistler their home. The primary focus was to develop a design that would support the outdoor activities and lifestyle of the family while ensuring that a sense of permanent - rather than recreational - home was created. Further, the house siting was to embrace nature, by engaging both the connection to mountain forest upon which it sits and the ski hill views beyond. The site is heavily sloped and there was also a desire to connect between indoors and outdoors on multiple levels. Southern exposure was to be utilized on the upper floor to bring much needed sunlight deep into the space on long win... More

The exterior walls are made of exposed rammed earth construction set atop a giant plinth of exposed concrete. The interior features natural plywood finishes and exposed structural beams.

Beck St. Residence

A young couple took on a dilapidated historic home turned multi-unit apartment building to return it to a single-family home with a minimalist approach.  The structure was entirely gutted, basement to roof, and rebuilt with a minimum of elements.  A central open stair clad in translucent channel glass separates and defines living and kitchen areas, allowing light to pass between them.  Glass floor panels at each end of the stair at the second floor lend to its lightness.  Elsewhere, the master bathroom contrasts dark wenge wood with neutral mosaic tile and a translucent glass panel veils the shower room. The finished house is filled with a series of simple vignettes connecting space to space with filtered light, extend... More
