We find an old one-storey house and a beautiful garden of bougainvillea on a plot with a large gap, and nearby homes of a certain age and little interest. An introvert project is proposed, with a prismatic piece closed on three sides, and fully open to the best views. In this

We chose to insert a contemporary facade as the new entrance to the museum.

Text description provided by the architects. Family villa in Srbín was built on a spacious and partially forested sloping plot with a small pond in its more open part. The aim of the design was to minimise the impact of the generous volume on the terrain and garden and connect the house as much as possible with its surroundings by working with the relationship of the volume and the terrain, as well as by the choice of materials. Quarry stone of the same type as the stone found on the plot was used for the facades of the volumes above ground and for buttress walls.

A building that needed to be quick and affordable.
Located in a residential neighborhood of Presidente Prudente, the site of 10x30m was elevated 1m from the ground with east-west orientation. Maintaining its level was our guideline for the topography, this way the building would be located at this level and a generous retreat created from the street level made possible a ramp access to the building.

There is a garden and a bench in front of the building, where children of the school located in the opposite street can rest and reap some jabuticaba fruit.

Text description provided by the architects. Two Stories building: exploring possibilities in commercial tenant buildings Commissioned design of this commercial tenant building was inspired by considering two main themes. First: how the design should relate to the neighborhood. We considered what aspects of the building should blend in and what statement it could make. As for the existing cityscape, until around the 1990s many buildings in this suburb featured conventional low gable roofs, hip roofs, or pavilion roofs. Flat roofs appeared in the past 15 years or so as condominiums, apartment complexes, and commercial buildings popped up here and there. Now these flat-roofed office buildings and condos are becoming more common here.

‘Old Shed New House’ is a home nestled within the agricultural landscape of North Yorkshire. The client sought a high quality, energy-efficient and low-cost building to serve as a house, library and gallery.

An existing agricultural shed on the site – once a container for tools and tractors – is now a container for a lifetime collection of books and art. The steel frame and ground slab have been reused and enlarged, retaining the original form of the shed. Newly clad in varied widths of shot-blasted timber and galvanised steel fins, the rhythmic facade reads like the bark of the silver birch that characterise

We wanted to win as much free space as possible and don't overload it with walls, constructions or furniture. This apartment is made for a woman, who is used to being in the middle of everyone's attention, knows how to handle it, same as she enjoys being alone.
