On its rooftop, two small studio apartments are merged into one, creating a unique home atop one of the city’s liveliest districts.

Following the “archetype of the ‘loft’ as a paradigm,” Bajet Girame n ..read more

  Woodward Architects have transformed a mundane 1970s beach house into an extraordinary family home. Located in Sydney’s Northern Beaches, the architects sought to enhance the house’s connection to the outdoors and celebrate the building’s existing DNA wherever possible. Drawing inspiration from the elegant simplicity of Japanese design and echoing the ethos of wabi-sabi, this project finds beauty in imperfection, embracing the raw and unrefined with a quiet elegance. Rather than knock the whole thing down and start again, principal architect Matthew Woodward and his team looked to ..read more

Civic yet Intimate: Casa Los Tigres in Mexico by César Béjar Studio.

  Casa Los Tigres is a home with many facades. To the streets of Culiacán’s Nuevo Vallarta, it presents itself as a closed-off private residence; solid walls with minimal punctures impose a high level of privacy from the small beachside town. Beyond, it uses order and vertical elements to set up a contemporary home with carefully curated moments towards the traditional Mexican central courtyard. In collaboration with Fernando Sánchez Zepeda, Mexican architect César Béjar configured this 465 square meter beachside home into two blocks, separated by a large central courtyard. It is ..read more

Chiaroscuro Composition: Elogio del Grigio by Cardillo Architecture.

by Reinette Roux
2M ago
    Belgian artist and surrealist René Magritte often took everyday, familiar objects and placed them in unexpected scenes, posing questions as to where the boundaries lie between what is real and what is representation. Similarly, architect Antonino Cardillo has created a space that evokes a sense of surrealism and questioning, in the Elogio del Grigio on the outskirts of Castiglione delle Stiviere, to the south of Garda in Italy. This 250-square-metre, double-storey home draws inspiration from local fog-bound lake Garda, and begs the question: where does reality end and represen ..read more

  Taking on the notion of a bushwalk and an invitation to slow down with the rhythm of nature, Downie North Architects invites a sense of calm and grounding with their breathtaking Castlecrag Courtyard House. Located on Cammeraygal Country, along the ridge line of Sydney’s Castlecrag, this family home is a homage to the site’s surrounding vegetation. The 270-square-metre home was part of a ‘bushland utopia’ designed by the beloved Walter Burley and Marion Mahoney Griffin—a series of mid-century split-level homes that embrace the rugged topography. The clients desired a home that wou ..read more

    Back in 2016, MVRDV’s glass brick facade to Chanel’s new flagship store broke the internet (or at least, the archi-web). It seamlessly bled a traditional brick facade into a transparent wall, poetically celebrating contemporary glass construction and architectural innovation. It just so happened that this MVRDV beacon sits along Amsterdam’s high-end shopping street, P.C. Hoofstraat. Also sitting on this prominent stretch in The Netherlands is Studio RAP’s newest addition to the high-end shopping districts’ facade-scape. Rotterdam-based Studio RAP have been breaking the barri ..read more

  China-based practice Cun Design has given us a taste of atmospheric-wow with their latest residential project, Box of Light. Located in China’s capital, Beijing, and stretching upwards of five storeys while encompassing 1,000 square metres, Box of Light celebrates the romance of light via architectural and artistic curation of light and shadows. This home spawned from the architect’s response to the lack of identity and character in the exponential rise in mass development of housing. Situated within the development estate Heguangchenyue, the family villa is divided into two com ..read more
