Z House

The creation of a residence in a location with strong natural element is always a big challenge. On an olive grove of the northeastern side of Corfu Island, this challenge became an opportunity to design a house that is in line with its exterior and inspires with its minimal lines. Z House provided the architect Maria Doxa the perfect “canvas” to “paint” a villa using the “colors” of Corfu hills and Ionian Sea. In the structure of the building, three long volumes stand out. The lower stone volume is at the back of the site and retains the inclination of the surface. The two other smaller volumes complement the stone - the one over it and the other in front of it - forming the construction, so as to creat... More

Daga Residence

Presenting to you a modern artistic take by Bora Da on a master bedroom. The bedroom is all art and oomph and luxury beautifully blended by the lines of modernity.The feature wall is an abstraction of ruffled palm in a calm ivory white. Sitting in front is a comfortable cozy bedding along side a lounge sofa draped in ever so famous houndstooth print. The television unit incompasses the feature wall spirit with a delicate glass book shelve. The chair, the painting all bring to your attention the vibe of the inhabitants and their want for an arty, modern and a comfortable living space. More

Oasis 2 Residence

This luxury residence was embedded into this steep hillside to overlook Lake Travis from two confluent directions. We were challenged to create views through, and access to, the pool from every room on the main level. In response, we created a glass jewell box that sits on top of a concrete plinth. The main entry area is an open void that bridges the lake to the user upon immediate entry. The lower level is is comprised of four individual private suites that pierce through the concrete shell to accommodate lake views.   More

Two Lakes Residence

We had a pleasure to work on the project of a private residence in a pristine birch forest in the south of Poland. Designed and executed with the utmost care, the residence became a private sanctuary, distant from the haste of the client’s everyday life. We took part in every stage of the project, touring the site before even the foundations were laid, advising the architect and the client from the conception, through the execution and until the final styling.  The client had trusted us fully, giving us almost unrestrained freedom to pursue our vision. A small number of very specific functional requirements, as well as a study of the client's other residences, served as a foundation of a truly bespoke design. The client asked f... More

Courtyard Residence

Nestled among a heritage redwood tree and mature oaks in a quiet suburban neighborhood, this Menlo Park residence was designed around a series of outdoor experiences. Minimalist and modern, the house consists of four distinct wood-clad pavilions connected by glass walkways that surround a central courtyard and open to an expansive backyard complete with raised pool and lounge areas. A covered walkway frames the entrance, leading to a double-height living / dining space. Bookended by outdoor spaces, the pavilion highlights the simple material palette of cedar, blackened steel, glass, and concrete, and is the backdrop for the homeowner’s collected art pieces. The family of four tapped John Lum Architecture to design their new house to... More

Root House

The house is located in a closed neighborhood in the northern side of Buenos Aires and is implanted in a ​​940 m2 lot. At the back of it there is a navigable canal that leads to the Lujan River.This strongly natural feature and the desire of the client to have a permeable house, closely linked to the environment, were the starting points for the project. We imagine then that the house could behave like a root that is taking possession of the land. A linear element, that bifurcates, goes up or down depending on the obstacles that wants to avoid or the objectives to follow during the growing process. Therefore, the architecture appears in this lot as a living element that will deformed according to the needs of the program or seeking to maxim... More

LINE-PLANE-PRISM | Loft addition to a penthouse

The progress achieved by systematic research will give birth to a dictionary of elements that, developed further, will lead to a “grammar”.W. Kandinsky, 1924, “Point and Line to Plane” A. ANALYSIS1.  A groundbreaking architectural vocabularyDefining the POINT and the LINE, W. Kandinsky and P. Klee have identified rich symbolic and conceptual content to these archetypal engravings. With their theoretical and painting work, the modern masters of abstraction laid the principles for a methodical composition on canvas, based on these primary Elements.What would the content of this radical vocabulary be if, reductively in some way, it was to be extended to the "3D canvas"?Extruded to the third dimension, the POINT, the LINE and the...

And we arranged sofa, dining, kitchen in order from the window side, and it was considered as layout not to interrupt eyes to window from each.The int... More

Residence 2105

Reminiscent of an older, simpler era, yet contemporary in spirit, Residence 2105 is essentially an extension to an existing residence. Initially designed keeping in mind a family of four, with time, as the family grew, a need was felt to expand the space to include two more bedrooms. The new construction was visualised as part of the first floor of the residence, which ultimately was designed to include a living, dining and kitchen space, turning the first-floor space into a comfortable, warm abode. The clients wanted to retain the old structure, being familiar and comfortable with the way they interacted with the functional spaces daily. And though the decision made economical sense, it also turned out to be the main challenge. The decisio... More

A meandering pathway leads to the majestic farmhouse through the cool shade of trees planted on either side. A solid wooden door with a bit brass inlay greets at the entrance and invites into the beautiful house. The central pathway in the foyer open to the courtyards on either side of it, where both the courtyards are... More
