Casa Blanco

A young couple, in anticipation of starting a family, desired a new family home that reflected their cultural background and individual taste. He was Spanish, and was drawn to black and white minimalism. She was Mexican, and wanted splashes of color in a modern home. Caption Caption Their existing home in the Maryland suburbs was small and dark, and did not take advantage of the views to the green parkway behind it.  The design solution included razing the existing house, keeping the basement, and building a new 2 story home with a double height living space open to views and abundant natural light. Flanking the living space on two sides are kitchen, and TV lounge on the main level and bedrooms on the upper level.  C... More

TD House | 2015 | SINTRA

The understanding of the area, the relationship of the land with the street and the scale of the street naturally determined the concept of the entire house. The considerable gap between the ground space and the access route defined the way the house was positioned. Ivo Tavares Studio The whole idea develops under a lower area. A white closed building merges with the environment, ensuring greater privacy and protection, superior energy efficiency, simple and clean, almost "monolithic" construction, as well as assuring wind protection and sunlight appreciation. Ivo Tavares Studio The white volume is challenged by two independent boxes at a higher level which elevates the organizational plan to create a relation with the street le... More

Three elegant white towers by Superimpose stand tall in a new CBD district of Changzhi

Changzhi is a fourth tier industrial city, 600 kilometers south-west of Beijing. Superimpose managed to break with the conventional cookie-cutter classicistic European-style drab developments to realize a constellation of three sculptural residential towers for a younger generation of city dwellers. CreatAR The towers stand in stark contrast to the rapidly urbanizing city district. The slim apartment towers have been situated to increase uninterrupted views and maximize sunlight exposure.  CreatAR Each loft apartment comes with a unique balcony to provide character to the different units. Strict rules should ensure the balconies will remain an outdoor space.  CreatAR A light materialization contrasts the muted su... More

A secret garden apartment in Tel Aviv

A Garden Apartment in central Tel AvivI met with the owners of the apartment, a couple with two children (the third child was born later) before the construction of the building began. They had many ideas, dreams and great taste.  We knew this apartment was going to be a special, joyous and creative one. It should be a practical and comfortable living space suitable for a young family with energetic children.   After a long period of joint planning and execution, we managed to complete this project this year. Let's take a short journey to this special place: Whilst walking to the apartment through a standard corridor similar to a new building in Tel Aviv, you open a door which leads you to a surprise – you are lead to a s...

White Clouds

A new social housing project in Saintes has totally reinvented what living together means. A seemingly inhabited cloud effortlessly signals the entrance to a recently rehabilitated working-class neighbourhood, known as ‘Les Boiffiers’, dating back to the 1970s. Landscape and architectural design come together in meaningful harmony, showcasing the new development.   The building is positioned in such a way as to respect the site’s quality, rather than merely colonise the given space. A sense of depth has been created, structured by footpaths and enticing visual perspectives, with the landscape slipping effortlessly in and around the architectural volumes, offering multiple orientations for the apartments, all of whic...

Religion Center

We are faced with the challenge of creating a Religion Center in the town, an original building known to all as the Casa del Cura, because of the impossibility of rehabilitating it, it was decided to make it a new floor. Approaching the project from a reflection in its architecture on the relationship between the roots of the past and the new buildings originated in recent years in the center. From the beginning it was decided to capture the image of the existing façade recalling the original. In this area, the building aims to dialogue with its natural environment of the city, from its own section and location as a landmark, trying to learn the shapes and profiles that draw the various traditional houses of the center and its town...

A|A HOUSE

The 220 sqm house is located in Herzliya, a quiet neighborhood in the Sharon district of Israel. The 3 story house intended for a young family (a couple with 3 kids). The couple, who used to live in an apartment, commissioned me to renovate their 220 sqm house into a contemporary minimalist bright space for their family. I used bright minimalist materials in my design as white steel, light concrete floor & light furniture.   The Staircase | a massive concrete staircase was located in front of the entrance. The staircase included four stairways on each level. Since the concrete staircase was massive & we wanted to light it & brighten up, we destroyed the old concrete staircase during the demolition process. We... More

Change in Direction – Apartment Renovation

The apartment in its original state had bathrooms and a laundry utility closet facing its best views. As quickly as the first walk-through it was clear that pastoral green landscape and partial Mediterranean Sea views were visible from the closed windows and shuttered shingles of the bathroom. In order to bring the views straight into the apartment and take advantage of them, the entire apartment needed to be reconfigured and essentially flipped over. The dramatic reconfiguration required accounting for existing windows, support beams, and a lot of creativity around solving problems with pipes and water access with a minimal budget. The laundry area and bathroom became a beautiful dining room area. The bathtub became the new kitchen. A be... More

ROSTOV

The bathroom facilities have been converted into objects of desire, which is why we allow ourselves to be surprised by the high sophistication that can be achieved in some designs such as the suite from the interior designer Alexey Aladashvili for residential housing in Rostov, Russia.   Following an exotic line, dark and vibrant colours of the furniture and decorative coating were combined into aguamarine, blue and pink tones with the elegant XLIGHT LUSH White, wood and black-finished tiles.   Eclectic, bright and vibrant. In the room, the classics are reinvented by mixing textures and colours into an incredible pattern of carefully thought-out combinations.   The key to the selection of materials was the ease of maint...

LH135. Restoration office building

Restore means to work with the history of what we have inherited from the past and, simply, make it look towards the future... That requires looking back with affection but without nostalgia.   When we were asked to carry out the restoration of "LH135" building, as opposed to completely transforming the spaces, our main concept sought to embrace the valuable elements of the original industrial design and made them look towards the future. Originally designed by an engineer, during our first visit to LH135 we found an old industrial building, characterized by a concrete structure of regular columns and beams, terrazzo floor tiles pavement, a granite lobby and an imposing limestone façade.    We decided to restore all these elements and leave...
