Artist Residence

Designed for an artist and an engineer, the residence is located mid-block in a downtown neighborhood surrounded by common Seattle cottages and bungalows. The design brief called for a work studio central to the layout of the house, ample white walls for a growing art collection, a strong connection to the gardens and to the life of the street, and lots of natural light. The house is scaled to fit discreetly into its surroundings, and seeks a non-fussy clarity in it’s detailing and materiality that defers to the interesting lives of its occupants.   Building Area: 3500 sf Contractor: Dovetail Photography: Benjamin Benschneider En savoir plus

After-School Care Centre Waldorf School

The grounds of the Waldorf School in Prenzlauer Berg possess a unique urban positioning between socialist prefabricated structures, Wilhelminian style blocks and the green spaces of the Jewish cemetery. The school building, having undergone a spirited renovation process, is a 5-storey prefab building from the 1970s.The after-school care centre and later extensions were designed in a completely different style. The new centre docks on the school’s courtyard stretching towards the sports hall, providing the schoolyard with a structural back to the street and a clear centre. The projections and recesses create different outdoor areas for various uses. The buildings received green roofs inclined in different directions and, with the rising eave... En savoir plus

Living space on the roof

During the renovation of one of the oldest small townhouses of the Marollen, the most charming popular neighbourhood in Brussels, the architect and the owner wanted to make efficient use of the limited space and create an outer space. Thanks to the DXW walkable flat roof window that was installed on the flat roof, the whole of the flat roof, which had been transformed into a terrace, could be used. On top of that, the living space and kitchen, situated below the flat roof, got flooded in natural light. The project was finished during the summer of 2017. En savoir plus

Modern Arabic House Design

Combining two contradicting aesthetics in a singular building design is one of the most challenging aspects a designer can ever tackle in a project, but the CAS team managed to do it brilliantly in this Modern Arabic House Design in Basra, Iraq. The idea was to highlight the underlying tradition with a fine layer of modernity on the surface, so the end product turned out to be contemporary, yet Islamic at the same time. The CAS design team started off the architecture by emphasizing a water fountain on the exterior wall that extends throughout the interior spaces. Furthermore, segregated living spaces for family and guests were incorporated with respect to the religion. Large windows span all across the elevation and provide stunning views... En savoir plus

Milner Modern Residence Design

The Milner Residence is a refurbished home that the CAS team worked on in Vancouver, Canada. The clients bought an old house that they wanted replaced with a completely modern one. So the CAS architectural design team put their heads together to create a design that is simple, minimal and beautifully contemporary in aesthetic. The idea was to use modern design elements like glass facades, flat rooflines and minimal ornamentation to create a home design that would appeal to modern sensibilities. The client, Eric Mannhardt, wanted to construct a new home upon the old foundations in order to better utilize the existing facilities. In the end, CAS designed a three story residence with beautiful double height interior spaces and several luxury... En savoir plus
