June 08, 2013 Architecture, Home Design

This Panama House is designed by Studio MK27, located in são paulo, Brazil.
The interior plan is organized into 3 floors and a sub-solo. Upon entering the lot, a tree-covered patio leads the guest to the door. A social hall distributes part of the program of the house: a library, vertical circulation, the utility rooms and the living room. From within the library you can see, in front of the exterior stone wall, a Maria Martins sculpture, reposing over a reflecting pool. The living room has large spans that open, in their entirety, to the garden, building a spatial continuity between interior and exterior. In the garden, the pool, mirrors the stones of the wall.

Shell House Design by Design4D, in United Kingdom

June 08, 2013 Architecture, Home Design

Shell House is design by Design4D, located in United Kingdom.
The Shell House extends the garden into a very low maintenance sedum roof with Velux rooflights drawing light into the rear spaces of the house. The largest expanse of glazing faces South to enhance Winter solar gain whilst also providing expansive views of an artificial landscape created by the neighbour’s sedum roofs. When the upkeep of a garden becomes too much work it can be replaced with sedum, thereby maintaining the landscape vista.

Traditional terraced houses face each other across a street with views between neighbours restricting elevational distances between buildings. The Shell House enables the ground floor plan to extend nearer to the neighbour’s site through its use of Velux rooflights thereby providing ground floor bedroom space as well as views of a low profile ‘landscape’ rather than an unmaintained backyard or neighbouring brickwork elevation.

Countryside House Design by Benjamín Murúa Architects, in Chile

This Countryside House is Designed by Benjamín Murúa Architects, located in Chile.
The gallery took the place of the core circulation connecting all the areas but also acts as a place to stay because of its width and orientation to the morning sun and the hills. On the other side, the corridor was extended to the garden overlooking the valley and protected from the heat during summer days. Once the gates that contain the space are opened, the garden blends with the landscape. To give a fresh look to the 20th century Chilean architectural elements, contemporary materials were used. New technologies focus on constructive details and materials like glass, steel, wood and concrete were included.

The objective of the project was to reuse and emphasise some elements of the Chilean houses of the early 20th century that were present in the pre-existing building such as patios, galleries and open corridors. The operation was to extend the 2 circulations to the north so as to integrate all with a second “L” where the new 3 bedrooms were included, connecting the old part to the new one with a threshold.

Westwood Apartment, Modern Interior Apartment by K2Ld Architects

June 07, 2013 Interior Design

K2Ld are not just good in building houses from scratch, but also in interior decorating. This Westwood apartment is just one example of their great work.

The apartment looks like it is very big one although that not just because of it size but because of interior design too. Most of the space combined in large living area what with built-in closets and only necessary furniture create the feeling of large openness. All possible furniture is wooden and everything besides kitchen is colored in light beige or brown. That made the interior very warm. A lot of lighting everywhere just add the feeling of cosines. Although when you see kitchen or bathroom you can understand that apartment isn’t so big as it looks and open living room is a great way to improve overall impression of size.
