The concept specified the use of white marble, typical of Portuguese architecture during the past century.  The use of the same material on all of the internal and external surface areas creates a collective feeling of fluidity and elegance which add to the sense of light and space.  The architectural dark timber staircase provides a sculptured link between levels and is lit from above by a large skylight.  Ultramarino, the in-house interior design element of the studio designed the ‘white concept’ for the whole interior, including the kitchen and bathroom elements.  The gardens wer...

Urban Villas

A Relaxing vibe was the driving thought behind the conceptualization of AA Urban Villas. The building itself was a mix used between a working space and a house.

It was like coming home to a holiday home, a resort on a high cliff in Uluwatu, Bali. Ernest Theofilus Looking sunset on the pool deck in the afternoon.

YEK Villas

The twin villas "levitate" amid the towering pines and birches of a secluded park in the Ural region of Russia. Their presence is felt, but subtle. Maxim Kanakin Ivanka Concrete panels, perforated metal and reflective glass combine in façades, which continue the patterns of the surrounding landscape. Beneath the exterior is a sturdy reinforced concrete frame. Maxim Kanakin Since the homes sit in a publicly accessible location, people walk freely in the area. Not only do the façade features perform well visually, but also give privacy to residents, so that they can see the landscape, but passers-by can’t see inside.
