In a quiet street, this sensitive but tough new beach house creates an intriguing sanctuary, integrated with context and landscape. Driven by the local vernacular of gently gabled houses, a sensitive building form is nestled between its neighbours. Two entry experiences – the most apparent an informal outdoor shower which celebrates the ritual of the beach return while a more discreet side entry leads into a central courtyard at the heart of the house.

Defined living spaces avoid vast open planning and bridge between separate distinct bedroom areas. These living spaces are unveiled and re-experienced through glimpses and framed views from differing perspectives. Outlook within and beyond shifts through these spaces, which change in character over day and season. Investment in the structure and shell of the house, considered bones and materials results in a calm and surprising journey integrated with users, site and its surrounds.

Sticks & Stones Home by Luigi Rosselli Architects

Location: Hunters Hill, New South Wales, Lane Cove, North Sudney, Australia

Year: 2017


 


Design Architect: Luigi Rosselli
Project Architect: Jane McNeill
Interior Designer: Romaine Alwill of Alwill Interiors Pty Ltd
Builder:  KCJ Constructions Pty Ltd
Structural Consultant: BG&E Pty Ltd

Hunters Hill is an attractive, historic peninsula that lies between the Parramatta and Lane Cove rivers on the north shore of Sydney Harbour.  The suburb, a precursor to the Garden City movement, was subdivided in the 19thcentury with sandstone mansions and Victorian timber cottages sitting side by side, with large gardens and private parks containing centuries old trees.

It was natural to choose stone and timber to build a new house on the edge of one of these private parks.  Sydney sandstone has a slightly yellow hue that darkens and becomes more attractive over time.  The timeless materials provide a warm colour palette in an otherwise contemporary construction.

Behind the sandstone walls, huge, double glassed (Skyframe) windows with minimal framing are pocketed out of sight.   Post tensioned concrete slabs have been cantilevered with minimal steel post support to cover the main garden terrace.  Behind vertical timber shutters, curved glass windows span from floor to ceiling.

Designed for an uncluttered and relaxed family life the house layout is very simple and quite cartesian in plan except for one sinuous wall overhanging the driveway.  Every room opens to a terrace or the garden through large glass doors that slide on ball bearings; one can step outside without noticing the thresholds.  Additionally, one can move fluidly from the entry to the open plan living space while hardly noticing the floor to ceiling timber door that, when open, is entirely hidden in the wall but when closed completely separates the open plan area from the rest of the house.

All this modern machinery for easy living could end up being sterile and boring without a dark side: take the stairs to the basement and you will find a subterranean level housing a car collection, a home theatre, workshop, and wine cellar.

Project Architect, Jane McNeill managed to pull out of the barrel a beautiful cellar and perfectly detailed drawings that required no site visits and no questions from the Builder to execute.

Sydney sandstone walls, steel and timber adjustable screens and concrete slabs are the spare and restrained and dominant materials of the entry frontage. Close to the neighbours and to the access road it needed to offer privacy yet at the same time allow the northern sun to filter into the house. A game of open-and-close may be played with the resulting shutter solution. The entry steps are laid on a gentle incline, with a ramp to one side to provide ease of access for children’s prams and for moving the garbage bins.

To the eastern elevation privacy is not required; on the contrary the situation of the house, on a Hunters Hill riverfront plot with its view of the yacht moorings on the Lane Cove River is the perfect reason to open it up to its fullest so as to embrace the invigorating and idyllic setting. Floor to ceiling windows can be pushed back to disappear completely behind the sandstone chimney wall and one may step out onto the veranda completely unobstructed.

The simple terraces and rooflines of the house contrast with a muddle of “must-have” accessories – spa, pool shower, pizza oven and barbeque – required for outdoor living. The swimming pool itself features a flush wet edge to facilitate ease of entry into and exit from the water and a concealed pool cover, which is remote operated and rolls out of a slot at one end of the pool.

The ŠTAJNHAUS has not been a project, the ŠTAJNHAUS has been a process. This house with a Renaissance core stands right at the foot of the chateau hill, in the former Jewish quarter of Mikulov (a. k. a. Nikolsburg). Throughout its existence it has suffered a great many scars, it has gone through tens of reconstructions and operations. All of these have altered the house beyond recognition. Yet it has maintained its almost medieval picturesqueness.

We came to a “pudding stone”. The more individual layers, spaces and surprising circumstances we uncovered, the more revisions and alterations our project we had to make in our project; and this lasted, in fact, until the end of realisation. In the beginning we did not have a clue where we would come to in the end.

We were looking for a limit what time we could come back to and for a point when we should rather go on a new journey. But we still wanted to preserve the house as an organic unit. You will not find a straight wall or a rectangular opening in the house, so we had to reinvent and remake to measure all the elements, which the investor was compliant with.

Originally, our job was just interior design. Gradually, however, we realized that the interior and exterior could not be solved separately, as the space and the shapes tend to blend together and create an indivisible unit.

The house has been reconstructed for the needs of a guest house, a part of it will be used as a private flat of the owner. Each room is unique, each has its own specific atmosphere. And there are wine cellars under the house, which have come back to their original use.

Feldman House by Core Development Group (Originally designed in 1953 by Gregory Ain)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Location:  Beverly Hills, CA

Built By Core, Designed By Core, Details, video


 


Originally designed in 1953 by famed mid-century modern architect Gregory Ain, Core Development Group has expanded and updated the Feldman House while preserving the integrity of the original architecture and context upon which it resides. This exquisite modern estate offers 11,300 square feet of private serenity on just under an acre of wooded grounds up the street from the Beverly Hills Hotel.

The existing mid-century modern house was preserved and seamlessly expanded without destroying the integrity of the original design. The height and scale of the additions create a boundary that centralizes the original structure accentuating its dramatic roof and deep overhangs.  The use of clear fir windows and doors, carried over from the original design, the continuation of the sloped roof and ceilings, the inclusion of private outdoor spaces adjacent to all bedrooms and master bath, integration of technology and lighting without detracting from the architectural forms, all make the addition blend in with the original.

Ibiza, Can Bikini by TG Studio

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Location: Ibiza,   Spain

Year: 2015


Architects: TG Studio
Photography: © Philip Vile


 


Tg-Studio was commissioned as interior designers for this country estate in the north of Ibiza, the property consists of a 3 bedroom house, surrounded by two hectares of lush gardens in which two additional houses provide two further bedrooms and en-suites. Tg-Studios clients purchased the building a few years earlier and felt that a makeover focused on the interiors was required. The main house consists of a larger living room come dining room and kitchen. There are two main bedrooms with en-suites on this level and a further bedroom with shower and roof terrace on the first floor. There is also a lean too bread oven structure adjacent to the main area for storing towels. The gardens also house a large pool and pool house for relaxing and this area also provides a party space/chill out area with bar. Planning restrictions forbid the extension of the building and TG-Studio had to work within the existing building. We found this very easy as the building, and inherited design is very handsome and it was mostly the interior that was neglected, so naturally the project was an interior design task. The main room features 4 metre high ceilings and large sliding glass doors so that in the summer the living room doubles up with the outside terrace. TG-Studio demolished the kitchen and installed a state of the art Doca kitchen with Gagganeu appliances, flame black granite worktops; grey tinted mirrored backsplash and painted white oak doors. We installed a new wood burning fireplace with flamed granite base and black steel back, this feature also holds a 70 inch TV, surround sound system and hides a new double height towel storage room. This has allowed for the niche featuring the bread oven to be opened up into the main room. The bread oven before was hidden behind a partition wall and used as storage. TG-Studio designed it so that it now opens up into the living room and introduced a circular roof light with four different shaped windows with yellow tinted glass to create a very large chill out niche/snug. In the night these windows glow yellow and stand out next to the stone of the façade. All flooring consisting of natural stone was sanded and sealed, the house was re-painted and TG-Studio fully furnished the villa. As all finishes and colours are kept in the Ibizan cool white; colours and textures while selecting the furniture was important to make a ‘London Cool hits Ibiza’ feel. The clients who are property developers in the UK use the villa for family vacations and privately rent to friends when not being occupied by them. They had asked not to create the stereotypical Bali feel but wanted an interesting eclectic feel with calm, happy, urban lines throughout. Bedroom 2 has a Moroccan influence and the studio an organic feel. The Bali house on the grounds was imported from Bali, hence its name; it features an amazing open aired bathroom. TG-Studio added furniture to compliment the scheme which includes the Bobbili Stoom wooden side tables from Andrew Martin, and the birdcage desk lamp. The pool house was extended and re-organised to house a large bar with built in fridges, a grill and a woodfire pizza oven. TG-Studio designed the furniture and selected the Holly Hunt fabrics for the pool house which were then manufactured and upholstered by local contractors.

COOL BLUE VILLA BY 123DV

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Location: Marbella,  Spain
Size: 620 m2


Architects: 123DV

Photography: © Carlos Caceres Lavergne



The sea in your holiday villa

If we can’t have a holiday villa directly at the seaside, we will bring the sea to the villa. That’s how we solved our client wishes of living at the seaside. The initial dream of the owner was having a plot by the sea. The translation of the dream lead to a design concept of water.

Transparent glass swiming pool

A transparent swimming pool – the corners are transparent: no steel construction is applied – is located in the heart of this modern high end villa. Next to this glass swimming pool a channel of water flows along the entire living area – downstairs, as well as upstairs. From the concrete staircase you can catch a glimpse of the sea from different viewpoints.  The use of stepping stones is repeated on the top floor, where a playful transition of inside/outside is created. On the roof you can experience maximum freedom: using the outside shower while gazing at the sea.

Privacy

To guarantee a certain level of privacy for the owners, the street side facade looks rather aloof. After opening the door in the wall, the visitor would expect a continuation of the defensive atmosphere, but the effect of inversion is astonishing. From that moment on it surprises you everytime. After the first surprising element – the stepping stones in the water – you enter complete spatial openness. A transparent look is created by applying glass and long sight lines. The water and its reflection in different locations enhance this effect.

Wood and natural stone

Smooth, hygienic materials with a cool, clean look and feel are combined with warm, organic materials, like wood and natural stone. For warmth, comfort and entertainment there’s a large tailor made cooking island made out of solid Corian, a fireplace, a leather seat that can be transformed into a home cinema system.

Home automation

All technical devices can be operated by smartphones or tablets. Even the lights in the facade, that shine through vertical slits – adding a warm welcoming feeling to the atmospere surrounding the villa in the evening.

Living proof

Cool Blue Villa is a luxury family villa for life, surrounded by luxury and water. A stunning view of the Mediterranean Sea. Now the residents use the villa for holidays. In the long-term they could even transform their holiday home into a place to settle down and grow old happily ever after.

123dv-liong-lie.400x400.jpgLiong Lie

Passion. I think I didn’t choose the architecture profession. The profession chose me. In my youth I was always creating; making drawings, building furniture, improvising music with my friends. When I had to choose I remember visiting the model making room at a Dutch university (Technische Universiteit Eindhoven). “This is it!” I thought and before I knew I was studying architecture, travelling the world visiting buildings.

Commitment. My parents thought me to treat other people like I want to be treated. That means collaboration out of respect, going for the best idea instead of taking the idea of “the boss” for granted, having fun, while working hard and getting results. That is how I am in private life with my family and how we organize our office.

Surprise. At a two year trip around the world for the work of my father at an age of nine years old we travelled through the Middle East, Asia, and Australia. I discovered that there is not one ultimate answer how you should life. With this attitude I also approach life and projects. Asking why and trying to look beyond the obvious. That is what makes it all worth for me.


123DV is founded by Liong Lie in 1999 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. The designs include a minimalist high end 85 m2 360 Villa in the Dutch forest, a luxury holiday villa in Marbella, Spain surrounded by water, a 1600 m2 modern villa in Tehran, Iran on a mountain slope. Because people’s identity is key for the design, every project is an exciting journey.

Greece, Milos house by K-Studio 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Location: Milos, Greece

Year: 2017



Architects: K-Studio 

Styling:  Anestis Michalis
Photography: Vangelis Paterakis

 


Perched on the cliff edge in Plaka, the main town on the Greek island of Milos, this 19th century house has been carefully restored to provide a London-based family with an authentically traditional yet practical summer retreat.

Originally built in 1813, the house is effectively a 200-year-old stone organism. Unlike more recent building styles, it is not made up of separate elements, almost every part has been constructed in stone. We were keen to respect this organism, leaving the 60cm thick walls untouched and performing a very precise and deliberate surgery on the building with minimal intervention. We removed more recent structural additions to revive the original intention of the design and all new elements have been constructed with traditional techniques using locally sourced materials. Restricted access due to the narrow streets within Plaka meant that these materials had to be carried by hand from the nearest road up through the village to the house.

Originally the house was divided into 2 zones; the ground floor as the main living and entertaining space and the basement, dug out of the mountain rock, as storage and utility space. We wanted to preserve the contrasting characters of the 2 floors whilst re-distributing their programmatic use.

Ocean House by Rob Mills

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Location: Lorne, Victoria, Australia

Architects: Rob Mills architecture & interiors


 


The modern Rob Mills aesthetic in its purest essence, Ocean House is a study in harmony. Raw concrete and polished timber blend seamlessly with the forest to create a calming retreat.

Visual beauty is matched by thoughtful interior design that allow friends to gather by the beach, while floor to ceiling glass and nautically-inspired terraces offer views across Loutit Bay to Lorne.
