hidden face

The cabin echoes our early construction experiences. Here, we are developing the shelter around a unique material: wood. The material allows integration and discretion in the landscape. The rhythm is mimetic. The composition is enough to shelter from the wind, looks, or rain. This simple gesture creates a limit, an invitation and a panorama. The trees and the shelter don’t touch each other but interact and create vertical and horizontal limits. Caption The gap in between the two walls invites the walker to enter the shelter. Inside, the atmosphere is warm, you can stand, sit, lie down, rest. The trees foliage filters the sun rays. Our imagination is summoned, reminds us of childhood memories. Sitting, leaning against the wall, o... More

Relax House

The Relax House is located on a flat site with a view on the Norwegian Fjords. It captures different portions of context and grant a different vision of living. The volume with a cross plan defines as a new landscape. Each "cell" revolves around a central pivot. The plan generates an intimate spatiality with an unusual approach.   The central body is surrounded by full-height wooden cabinets, these become partitions. A continuous play of lights and shadows is generated by the large windows and eyes created in the attics, like a construct created by the fruits of space looking at the sky from the inside. The house is reduced to the overlap of elementary forms and to a basic conception of the use of building materials. The structure is... More

The Hill House

Some 10 kms away from Shimla, the project Hill House is banked on one of the peripheral roads of a compounded residential area, AIRA Homes. The place holds decades of memories for the family, now visited by them only as a summer retreat. In 2018, the mother and the daughter unanimously took up the challenge to renovate, with the intent of modifying the interiors to serve their current lifestyle. The initial interventions solely by the local contractor couldn’t stand up to their vision, and that’s where we jumped into the picture, in collaboration with Kanika Kapoor and Aman Jalota. On receiving the already interfered project with a half built attic and haphazard proposals for the interiors, we then knew that this was going to b... More

This project is part of a wider ongoing renovation process of an historical stone house, located in the old town of Koper. House V consists of three apartments that we have named V1, V2 and V3. With a living space of only 35m2, and just one window, V1 was the first to be completed. Due to its location on the ground floor and narrow shape, we divided the apartment into two parts according to the daylight and privacy required. The bedroom, bathroom and wardrobe are pushed to the back, while the kitchen, dining and living area adjoin the window. The divisory wall between the bedroom and the rest of the apartment is designed to provide natural light at the back of the apartment while at the same time, blocking the view from the street.

École Sainte-Anne - A new redesigned schoolyard

These new playing and learning fields now allow for higher energy expense for children during their breaks. The new outdoor schoolyard is benefited as much by the t... More
