Projet • By Krownlab Inc.Bureaux

Krownlab Headquarters

Tucked into the industrial disctrict of Northwest Portland, OR, the Krownlab building exemplifies creative repurposing of a 1930's warehouse.  The board formed concrete structure was originally used for producing braided steel cable for the shipping industry.  Beams and joists were sand-blasted to reveal old growth Douglas Fir, balancing the predominance of concrete and glass.  An open office floor plan was achieved by using fixed and sliding glass panels and half-wall partitions.  Krownlab sliding door hardware was used for entryway, conference room, and private meeting rooms. A white paper is available on the Krownlab website (, detailing the creative use of office space. Caption Caption Cap... En savoir plus

19th street

Sidell Pakravan Architects has renovated an apartment in San Francisco’s Potrero Hill by contrasting a set of distinct wood volumes against the dominant horizontal planes of existing low ceiling heights and making use of an unused roof to capture outdoor space within the city.    The volumes, clad in walnut, establish a warm visual language that continues from the main floor through to a new penthouse. One volume controls vertical movement through the space, while a second defines the main living area and breaks through the ceiling to create a large interior room on the roof. The reading of the two volumes registers as a material difference between the insertions and the surrounding perimeter. A deep built-in bookcase on o... En savoir plus

Floating Garden House

The spatial organisation of the house is derived from the level of privacy required as per the function of the space. Here, the Ground floor houses the office area, a multi-purpose space and a room for saint. So basically the main house activities starts from first floor and reflects in the elevation, as if the house is floating. The first floor has all the common areas like formal drawing room, living room, kitchen, dining space, family sitting, guest room & Parents room. The other two floors are kept more private, and each floor is dedicated to each son and his family, accommodating the master bedroom, kid’s rooms, study and huge terrace gardens.Except for the list of space requirements, the clients gave the architect a fre...

Projet • By Jost ArchitectsAppartements

Adela Apartments

The project came about with the development of a large residential block close to the Elwood foreshore and Port Philip Bay. The brief simply requested a spacious apartment product that was cutting edge and contemporary, but subtle both inside and out. The concept of a large apartment resulted in six single level dwellings, each with the proportions of a small house. The apartments are low maintenance, functionally adaptable to appeal to a range of potential residents, and highly sustainable. Externally, rather than go for a standard “stacked wedding cake” form, the building was set back significantly from the adjoining properties on the lower levels. This allowed the main volume of the building to have vertical sides and reduce... En savoir plus

Rasovic House

The building is located on slightly sloping terrain, opening a view of Fruška Gora national park. The southeast orientation of the outdoor terraces and the view of the natural environment provide a unique soothing ambiance.  The main challenge for the architectural office Modelart Arhitekti was to use the existing foundation and the basement of an unfinished house. Above the existing basement, a large terrace was obtained, which is connected to the living area of the house, emphasizing the connection with the natural environment. This is due to the large glass surfaces that provide good illumination, views and a connection to the terraces. During the design process, one of the goals was to preserve the existing trees around t... En savoir plus

Pine Cove House

We created the architecture of the Pine Cove House while minimizing environmental damage. The volumes are arranged so as to integrate the house into the forest space as much as possible.  The space of the house isn't limited by the walls, we have made nature and the environment part of the architecture, an extension of the house. A feeling of overflow of inner space into outer space.   Today people drive cars, work in glass and steel office centers, and are exposed to information noise from screens. Technology has evolved faster than humans and we feel uncomfortable. Sometimes we need to break free and touch what our body and mind need. Enjoy nature, feel the ground with our feet, breathe in the fresh forest air. We have int... En savoir plus

Modern Shingle Style

Designed for a family of four, this Modern home draws upon the spirit of the American Shingle Style and contemporary Dutch architecture to create a vibrant good neighbor in an established area of Menlo Park, California. The 4,500 square-foot, two-story home with a full basement updates the traditional elements of the wrap-around porch, bay window, and gabled roof to create a fresh, expressive piece of residential architecture. Through this reinterpretation, traditional rules of style and proportion are loosened to allow for expansive glass openings, a free-flowing plan, and strong visual and physical connections to the outdoors.
