Nuestro sueño by Espacio18 celebrates the culture and lifestyle of Oaxaca

On a 300m2 site at the city limits in Oaxaca, Espacio 18 has created a dream home for a retired American couple that reflects Mexican culture and ways of living that drew the pair to the region. Onnis Luque Called ‘Nuestro sueño’ the home is a clay box that contains coherent concrete structures based on 60 cm modules, which mark and distribute the program of the house. Onnis Luque At the centre of the home is a kitchen and central patio, a typology like that of an old colonial Oaxacan house. Adding a modern touch, folding steel bay windows transform the space and blur barriers between inside and outside, allowing for flexible rooms. Onnis Luque The house is designed to be adaptable and flexible, a place... More

Lofts at Mercer Landing

Overlooking the stadium at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, you will find an expansive roof top recreation area atop a university housing complex. The expansive recreational roof deck common area was completed with Duradek Heritage Agate with cool roof qualities. Applied with adhesives, the 6 ft widths of vinyl sheets were heat welded for a completely water-tight seal. Duradek is installed only by applicators that are trained in the techniques required to integrate the membrane into the building envelope. The 10,000 sq. ft. rooftop terrace is a highly used outdoor amenity for The Lofts student housing so shutting down access for maintenance is a troublesome prospect. With Duradek™, maintenance is minimal and requires no recoating... More

Park House

The renovation project of an apartment in the historic center of Milan, located on the seventh floor with simultaneous expansion on the roof terrace, has placed us in front of the now increasingly recurring theme of "building on the built". The design choice consists in the realization of a volume, almost entirely in glass and polished steel, set back from the façade wire for its vertical components and instead re-aligned to the horizontal ones. This volumetric decomposition allows, from a perceptual point of view, to relegate the new glazed façade on the background plane and to make the horizontal brise-soleil protagonist; "glass shards" with different orientations and lengths, allows to fragment the physicality of the artifa...

Atelier Luxury Apartments Landscape

Real estate developer Carmel Partners awarded Surfacedesign creative control of the outside living spaces at its luxury apartment project Atelier, designed by architecture firm Solomon Cordwell Buenz.  Taking inspiration from the building’s proximity to the former Los Angeles Garment District, Surfacedesign’s overall approach was influenced by the Bauhaus textile patterns of Anni Albers.  Geometrical lines and shapes are repeated throughout the 33-story project’s two outdoor living spaces: pool/amenity deck and rooftop lounge.  Surfacedesign injected the textile inspiration into the composition, stitching together the hardscape with a rich landscape of native and Mediterranean plantings.   Atelier&rsq...

The outdoor area is lushly landscaped and feels like an actual oasis in the middle of the desert More

320 Plummer

You may not have heard of Ebenezer Howard, but visit our new multi-residential project in Port Melbourne and you can see his legacy come to life. In the 19th century, Howard drew up concepts for a ‘garden city’, urban pockets with plenty of green space clustered around the city centres to help evenly distribute density. With P.M. we’ve picked up where he left off, creating a 21st century garden city in resort form, which will anchor Port Melbourne’s future. Three buildings grace the landscaped grounds. The P.M. building is the tallest of all three, a slender, sculptural structure with wrap around flesh glazing covered in white lace. Anchoring the corner of the site, the twisting form is followed by the two billowing... More
