LRVO House extension

Dans le quartier du Preux, en bordure de Saint-Herblain, le tissu pavillonnaire aligne les maisons identiques ou symétriques, habillées de teintes pastel. Posée au dessus du garage, débordant d'un pignon autrefois aveugle, la surélévation LRVO tire profit de l’orientation de la parcelle. Jouissant d’une situation particulière d’angle ("la rue est vers l’ouest"), VOUS exploite cette position par l'ouverture du volume et son agencement. C’est La Ruée Vers l’Ouest. Un volume simple et monobloc, radicalement enveloppé d’un bardage bois, sur les murs comme sur le toit, dialogue avec le pavillon. Tel une épure d’une «maison... En savoir plus

Eco, biobased villa near Amsterdam, Netherlands

The house has been designed according to the sustainable principles of biobased, ecological construction. In the design and construction of this house, we carefully looked at the orientation, the sun and the usual wind direction (for example, for the possibilities for night ventilation). The sun has a lot of influence on the shape and the layout. The house is constructed from a vapour permeable timber frame construction system, delivered on site as prefabricated elements. All the insulation materials above the ground are natural. Martijn Heil The plots are relative small in this project. The neighbouring home is relative close by and provide much shade in winter. The clients have therefore chosen not to create a roof overhang on... En savoir plus

Ha'ne Sushi

The brief for Hane Sushi was simple, just like the design intent - design a fresh, clean, contemporary and simple setting for a new sushi train restaurant in Eaton’s Hill Village. We worked closely with the client to develop a paired back, light and airy aesthetic, quite different from other Sushi Restaurants they had done before. By keeping the material palette and colour selections minimal, we were able to work within the client’s budget. We carefully selected finishes that enhanced moments in the plan, like the warm Tasmanian oak timber frame over the sushi bar, which really works to frame the action going on within the sushi bar, and highlight the food on the sushi train. While the organic nature of the varied coloured blue... En savoir plus

Amenia farmhouse renovation

Located on a pastoral piece of property in Amenia, NY, this 200 year old farmhouse oozes with charm and grace. Old timbers line the ceilings, wide floorboards are worn by decades of use, and eccentric moments are scattered throughout. Although stately and proud, the existing home showed its age: walls sagged, floors sloped, and an ill-conceived addition felt like a disjointed accessory. Perhaps most notably, the home lacked any relationship to the beautiful property. Rather, the home cocooned its users in intimate, dark interiors — charming on a snowy winter day, but less so on a glorious summer evening.   My clients bought the farmhouse in 2000 as a country getaway from New York City. Over the course of many summers and weeken... En savoir plus

House AD

La maison unifamiliale AD est située au pied des Dolomites de Polhov-Gradec, à proximité de la capitale Ljubljana. Sa conception architecturale suit les contours existants du terrain en pente. Il y a deux vues entièrement différentes du bâtiment en cours de développement, soit du niveau du sous-sol, soit du rez-de-chaussée. En regardant la partie à un étage, on découvre deux masses perpendiculaires reliées entre elles. Les deux volumes sont placés au sommet du paysage vert et recouverts d'un toit vert plat, enveloppé dans une metalfascia détaillée. Alors que l'étendue de la forme du bâtiment peut finalement être...

Tree House

The owners wanted to upgrade an internally awkward and dark middle suburban Californian Bungalow into a light, modern 3 bedroom + study residence.There was a small group of huge trees in the backyard that the owners loved, so they became integral to the design of the new addition. The rear extension has substantial north facing windows that utilise these existing trees for shading from the summer sun. An angled eave overhang is provided for these windows where there are no trees to offer shading.   The extension was conceived as a single volume of efficient construction. It has a simple flat roof with interconnected spaces differentiated by changes in floor level that follow the sloping site. The rear decks also terrace downward towa... En savoir plus

Jar Church

Au cours du XXe siècle, les églises se transforment de lieux pour les offices dominicaux en des édifices à usages multiples et expriment le modernisme international en béton, souvent avec des formes et des fonctions non traditionnelles, et non plus les mouvements nationaux solennels comme l'Art nouveau et le néobaroque.Dans les années 50, de nouvelles activités paroissiales se développent en faisant naitre le besoin d'un différent type d'édifices. En partie inspirées par le mouvement des petites églises, les églises actives s'affirment à présent avec des bureaux, des salles de réunion et des espaces pour les activit&... En savoir plus

Chalfont

La propriété est directement adjacente à la réserve naturelle de Rye, l'un des plus importants sites de conservation de Grande-Bretagne. Le site est formé de dépôts de galets ondulés qui se sont formés au fur et à mesure du retrait de la mer au cours des siècles. La propriété existante était un petit bungalow de 2 pièces avec une collection de hangars dans divers états de délabrement reliés au bungalow.   Il n'a pas été possible de rénover le bâtiment existant et notre mission était donc de créer un bâtiment moderne qui réponde au contexte unique de la r&eac...

Haiku House

Located on a bluff overlooking the San Francisco Bay, Haiku House is the centerpiece of a unique property in Tiburon, CA consisting of four structures including a main house, guesthouse, beach house and garage dispersed among native and exotic plant gardens that extend from Paradise Dr. down to the Bay.   The main house was a kit house based on a Minka, a traditional Japanese farmhouse and sold by Haiku Houses. Haiku Houses were constructed using a round log timber frame supporting a large hipped tile roof and typically elevated above the ground. This particular home had a Douglas Fir structural frame, combed spruce ceilings and redwood paneling throughout the interior.   The steep concrete driveway and small auto court w... En savoir plus

Modo Pento

L'intérieur de ce penthouse moderniste et jazzy (Modo Pento) a été dès le départ un régal pour le design et un délice pour les sens. Situé au dernier étage d'un immeuble de trois étages en briques brunes de couleur marsupiale, à St Kilda, le client s'est laissé inspirer par un assortiment d'images d'hors-d'œuvre du milieu du siècle. Des cocktails de crevettes, de la charcuterie roulée, des gelées et des tartes à l'orignal, associés à des Tupperware à profusion, offraient un choix infini de textures, de couleurs et de formes.   Principalement orientée vers le Nord, cette maison dans le ciel...

Spinnaker

The site’s topography, orientation, exposure to the elements and neighbours, define the building’s form. The building responds through systems of blocking and filtering: walls of sliding glass, screens, and large scale automated clerestories The resultant form and spatial dynamics are reminiscent of a full sail, a Spinnaker.   The primary form of the house is accessed via a bridge from the pedestrian entry and carport. The bridge provides a framed view to Hervey Bay, and plays with the concept of leaving terra firma and boarding a vessel. The entire upper level is one large open plan, column free living, dining, kitchen and entertaining area. Large timber framed sliding doors open to expansive decks, featuring integrated...
