                                Located in an old canal house built at the beginning of the 17th century in Amsterdam, <a href="http://standardstudio.nl/portfolio/nh25-loft/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">NH25</a> is a modern loft designed by <a href="http://www.standardstudio.nl/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Standard Studio</a>. The entryway is through a double garage door which is the only part of the house seen from the street. That level houses space for a car, bikes, and a home theater room.
The loft itself is built where the courtyard used to be with no windows to let natural light into the space. To rectify that, the architects designed a new central courtyard with floor-to-ceiling windows adding much needed daylight inside. To bring in additional light, they installed six large skylights that keep the interior bright and feeling spacious. The open floor plan remains private since no windows connect the space with nearby neighbors. The rooms are placed around the courtyard giving easy access to the outdoor space.

                                Situated on a steep hill just under the Shakespeare Bridge in Los Angeles, this mid-century home was renovated and given a small addition by <a href="https://ras-a.studio/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">ras-a, inc</a>. The bones of the house, now named House under a Bridge, were good but it was cramped and dated. The homeowner chose to live in the house for a time to get the feel of it and to decide what things he&#8217;d like to change. With strict building rules, they weren&#8217;t allowed to extend the home&#8217;s footprint and instead found more square footage in the original crawl space just under the upper level.
The residence is a split into three levels which allowed an extension of the lower level to make way for a laundry room and guest bathroom without adding to the footprint. The existing post and beam roof had no insulation so they sprayed a rigid foam insulation on from the roof

                                A young couple with a child commissioned Taiwanese design firm <a href="http://www.kcstudio.com.tw/main.php"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">KC design studio</a> to renovate a 125-square-meters <a href="http://www.kcstudio.com.tw/work_inside.php?wid=1&amp;w_id=71"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">residence</a> they wanted to call home after living in another country for many years. The owner had lived in the Xindian River neighborhood as a child and now wanted to raise his own child in the same district. The results are a combination of the couple&#8217;s styles – modern elements for the husband and natural details for the wife – that harmoniously come together to form a warm and elegant space.
In order to disguise the steel girders and pipes on the ceilings, they deconstructed it to create arched panels leaving room in between for them. They’re able to bring together the styles by using different materials for the floors, walls, and ceilings. For instance, they’ve paired polished concrete floors with a more natural wall color with a textured finish and brick on
