Chicago Sunset

CHICAGO SUNSET is an apartment in the same-name residential complex with a panoramic view of the city. Particular attention was paid to details, a vintage workbench and monstrously beautiful sunsets. On the verge of brutality and elegancy – that’s how we can characterize the spirit of the project. At the outset these were two separate apartments joined together with the division into the private and common zones preserved.  Caption Caption The common part of the apartment presents an airy environment, a real mix of textures, styles and finishes joined together in a monochrome colour array of the interior. Metal partitions that incorporate hand-made ribbed glass separate the entry space. A vintage workbench from t... More

bilo-CRM

The project re-evaluates a two-room apartment in the heart of Milan, in a 1960s palace. The objective of the renovation is to make the apartment as large and bright as possible. The constructive memory of the existing is not entirely lost, but enhanced: the Palladian marble and the Italian herringbone parquet are maintained and smoothed; with small punctual interventions the contribution of light to the rooms is enhanced. Virginia Lorello Architetto The 1960s residential building is one of the most common building types in Milan. At that time there was certain care in the selection of finishes, but the interiors reflect a culture of living that was totally different from ours. The apartment consisted of a small kitchenette, a small li... More

Wine bar TEN10

The prominent position of the bar in Pirgos, Greece, benefits from focused perspective views over the central town square, and its good orientation allows the use of natural light; this context, and the owners’ desire for clear, singular lines in the interior, provided the framework for the design elaboration. Caption The layout places the bar and the cellar in the middle of the composition, creating a memorable identity. The monolithic bar bench, made of natural stone in emerald color, and its framing by the wooden cellar, designed to be organically integrated into the space, is combined with the distinctive metal roof that mirrors natural light, entering the space through clerestory windows during the day.

VILLA MM

An urban residence with an austere appearance, it dialogues with its densely built-up surroundings in a rough and selective way. Situated on a corner lot, it is on two levels organised around a central patio facing south, which brings natural light into all the main relational spaces. Alessandra Bello Fotografa It could be described as a house with two souls. Villa MM only shows its true kaleidoscopic essence once the visitor has crossed the solid sandblasted concrete curtain wall that forms its base. This opens up externally at the large telescope along the north front, giving a glimpse of the interior spaces. Alessandra Bello Fotografa It is surmounted by a monolithic volume of walnut travertine surgically sectioned with flar... More

SAOTA translates their South-African modernistic sensibilities into a Russian context for the Silver Pine villa

In a unique pocket of natural pine forest close to the Moscow historic center, SAOTA realized a contemporary home with an outward orientation. The volume contrasts a more closed off gray exterior with a warm colorful interior. Sergey Ananiev   Advanced glazing systems provide insulation during the extreme Russian winters and floods the interiors with as much natural light as possible in these dark months. The architects opted for silver grey metal cladding to enhance the green of the surrounding trees. Sergey Ananiev   On the monolithic street facade side a backlit bronze entrance signals the warmth of the interiors. The designers conceptualized the villa as a geode that reveals a shimmering crystal interior. Sergey... More

The Cube House

A playful game between cubic volumes created a simple design proposal, strict on the exterior and soft on the interior. Putting these contrasts in balance, the hard geometric surfaces creating an envelope for the house, create a statement of a modern building translated through forms, materials, and colors. At the same time, through a warm environment, the interior of the Cube House emphasizes on natural materials, offering the comforts of modern family life in the southern suburbs of Attica.      On a very small plot, the functional needs of the family of four seek creative coexistence in a modern shell. The living areas are distributed on the ground level utilizing large openings showing an extroverted character connec... More

KAAN Architecten extends Antwerp Royal Museum of Fine Arts with hyper modern roof galleries

KAAN Architecten approached the Antwerp Royal Museum of Fine Arts in two distinctly different ways. The 19th century building was restored to its former grandeur as much as possible and the new extension, inserted into four former patios, adds a clean hyper modern spatiality to the Fine Arts experience.     The new addition is held up by a 1-million-kilo steel skeleton. Its cleanness, asymmetry and verticality contrasts with the ornamentality, symmetry and horizontal nature of the existing 19th century neoclassical  building.  © Mediamixer “Both the 21st and the 19th century museum couldn’t be more different and more intense. They embody an emblematic contrast in dimensions, light and atmosp... More
