Cruz House

Cruz House is located within a landscape of olive trees in the Aljarafe region of Seville. The house moves away from any nearby urban nucleus, dissolving the limits of the plot with the rest of the landscape.

Furthermore, in height the central space is expanded with a double height, connected to the upper gallery... En savoir plus

Berro House

Close to the Quinta del Berro Park, in a street bordered by leafy trees, we find this house built at the end of the 1920s. David Zarzoso The house, which was the residence of the sculptor Jorge de Oteiza in the 50s, was very damaged, and its facades had undergone numerous modifications. We began developing an investigation in the Archives of the city, which allowed us to discover the plans of the original project. David Zarzoso Based on this documentation, it is decided to recover the original image of the house: a white volume, with large windows to the outside and a Roman ceramic roof, surrounded by a garden that seems to climb the facade, by incorporating forged steel planters .

Money Cafe Pathum Pawn Shop

In Thailand, the public generally has a rather negative perception towards pawn shops as a financial last resort. Their appearance is also normally obscured and unwelcome. To challenge this, the Client has a vision to remodel his family’s pawn shop business into just another form of financial institution that can be widely accepted. Getting money from a pawn shop will be regarded as a lifestyle, no longer a necessity. DOF sky|ground The building is situated in Pathum Thani, about 30 minutes further up north of Bangkok. The site was a row of existing shophouses set further in away from the road, so the visibility was quite poor.

Projet • By Axel Duhart ArquitectosMaisons privées


A private house developed in a very narrow lot, 32.75 feet with a narrower restriction of 3.25 feet in each side. One view to the street ond the other open to the water canal, so everything has to be opened to that side. Another consideration isue was the climate of the Mexican Pacific, with an average temperature over 86 F an a humidity more than 60%. Axel Duhart So the final decision was to built a closed box, with concrete walls with a narrow openings all the lateral side opened and a big window open to the canal view. The second floor was "suspended" by  two very big steel open apparent frames that lets the light flow to the lower floor. One side is used for a corridor with glass floor, so the light can go through. Ramiro... En savoir plus

JS Apartment Refurbishment

Floor-through apartment with spectacular lights and views. Hidden, as usual, in a tangle of partitions walls and doors that cut up the house according to ancient requirements and old ways of life. The demand for light and open spaces has also been encouraged by the pandemic. The intervention is limited to the modulated and subtle, minimal, surgical, geometric manipulation of the furniture and partitions necessary for life. Large container volumes build the watertight negative of a continuous space, which flows and dynamizes the way of occupying and inhabiting life. The solid oak floor suggests, on the one hand, the rigorous rhythm that governs the floor plan, brings color, emphasizes depth and introduces, at the same time, the necessary nat... En savoir plus
