Egue y Seta
Loft in Terrassa


Introduction Egue y Seta has once again managed to avoid blank solid walls to favour semi-transparent partitions made of greenery as a more sensuous and bland alternative. With their latest project the studio has proven that just about 10 linear meters of walls are more than enough to articulate the more private areas of the […]

João Diniz

It would be premature to affirm, or deny, the parallelism between the terrain and the arched roof meeting of the computer project with the industry. The metallic roof-relief performs its functions creating intimacy, integration, lighting delineating the tower as part of the landscape. The site topography defines the three internal levels by proposing a ride to the backyard where landmarks […]

Atelier d’Architecture Bruno Erpicum & Partners
Rainha


Concrete envelops the building, like weathered skin tanned by Portugal’s climate. The skin has wrinkles and flaws that trap the light. This denotes its strength of character. Below the day zone exposed to air and light, lies an underground family room. It acts as a rest-stop before reaching the bedrooms. The sofa invites us to sit […]

North Av House


The site is located in a heritage conservation area that is fiercly protected by Leichhardt council. Being in one of the few streets in the Inner West Sydney that are still largely original in their streetscape, any alteration or addition was bound to be somewhere between controversial and impossible.

Andrew Maynard Architects
Mash House


The approach taken for the Mash House is one which, despite first impressions, celebrates the backyard. Or perhaps less so the traditional notion of the backyard, and more so just plain, outdoor space. The original deep and dark, double-fronted Victorian house offered a plethora of challenges; not least of all, it’s lack of solar access. […]

Topographic house – single house in Llavaneres


The house lies along its longitudinal axis: the view on the landscape, towards the sea, is —again — one of the most important values for the project, which unfolds itself and gets mixed with topography. The building is horizontal, elongated, sinuous, catching the landscape, moving delicately in order to obtain the best views, without shutting […]
