House for Two Neighbours

This project brings together two row-houses that shared a party wall belonging to neighbours who wanted to develop together. Their goal was to create two rear-yard extensions that were both individual and worked together as a cohesive whole. The project was an opportunity to find new ways to creatively advance the Flemish architectural tradition of distinctively individuated houses that yet cohere with their context. Johnny Umans Johnny Umans Shared Vocabulary, Distinct Expressions We started with a shared design vocabulary that reinterprets Flemish vernacular architecture in contemporary forms and materials. The design picks up on the type's gabled roofs and punched windows, recombining these elements to create two individual e... More

Citadelle Dock 1, Deux Rives in Strasbourg

The Deux Rives project is the largest development project in Strasbourg since the Neustadt was built between 1871 and 1918.

Erlenstraße in Lochau

On the loosely built-up outskirts of the Lake Constance community of Lochau, we have built a modern residential quarter. In close cooperation with the municipality, the design advisory board and the neighbours, we achieved a careful and well thought-out densification. Spread over four buildings, we created 20 light-flooded flats with generous outdoor spaces. Albrecht I. Schnabel Different typologies provide a high-quality home for singles, couples and families. Built in sustainable timber construction, the buildings blend harmoniously into the existing residential area on Lake Constance. All flats are lit on at least two sides, and on the top floors even on three sides. The common access platforms covers an inner courtyard which, like... More

TOYA (Towards Your Aspiration) – Root House

Modern architecture adopts traditional elements, that are present in Bucharest city, in order to compose a unique private residency. Strict tilts, and clear lines create a magical and harmonious material combination. The reflective attribute of the metal ceiling manages to decrease -at least in appearance- the size and the vertical structure of the house. Similarly, the bricks with earthly colors on the wall, offer unification between interior spaces, balconies, garden, and green areas.  Caption Symmetrically in relation to the building, two rooftops are extended in the front and back area of the house, forming protected exterior spaces for the residents, that they wish to enjoy their time there.

MoYeoGa

Gathering, building a house, and living there together is like a dream of our life. Be that as it may, we are witnessing more and more houses are built for various purposes over time. Nevertheless, it is too difficult to gather all potential occupants so as for them to build a house by reflecting all opinions and needs of themselves. Particularly, any house where many families gather to live in downtown must be built as a multi-household housing type which is commonly called a “villa” in Korea. These houses often boil down to monotonous buildings by the land size, circumstances, or construction cost. For all that, “Mo-yeo-ga,” (which means a “Gathering House”) is to fulfill the romantic dream of a house i... More

ALPINA Residential Complex

The underlying concept of the complex is "play of silhouettes", where the natural landscape is intertwined with an artificial volume created by an architect. 2STORM creative agency This form is comparable to the existing landscape and the highway, which creates a certain dynamics and romanticism of the area. 2STORM creative agency When we were working with the facade, the requirement for air conditioning was taken into account. The idea of the facade "pattern" was generated, which was then transferred to its surface. 2STORM creative agency Thus, we have obtained a texture that does not contradict, but emphasizes the complex silhouette. 2STORM creative agency We tried to stay away from the traditional development of n...

Brazilian Taste

The project is born from the prime necessity to convert the property from an office to a residential building. The owner asked moreover to think about an elegant, fresh, flexible space, which could communicate with the numerous plants: their major passion. Caption The whole layout has been then redesigned according to the new needs. That’s how Brazilian Taste is born, an apartment which is characterized by many areas and “microcosms” (living/kitchen/studio/dinner), but all of them are in continuous relation and dialog with each other. Caption The apartment is developed around an iconic element, “concrete box”, a volume which is closed on three sides and which hosts the living room. This is the core... More
