Renovation of a single-family house in Hod Hasharon. Before the renovation, the house was country-style, dark and old-fashioned. The entrance floor was re-designed along with the outdooor developing of the plot, while opening a new windows and creating full inside-outside connection. Changing the layout of the first floor according to the needs of the family, and Adding a second floor attic as a bedroom for the eldest daughter.

My favorite area in the house is the family lounge, originally there was closed wall, and I decided to open a huge window with a bench underneath with storage. I moved the olive tree from the entrance of the lot to the center of the new window. The window frames the tree as a picture, so we decided not to add curtains to that window.

Another space that I love is the boys’ study area on the first floor. An open space next to the staircase, where I designed a library of random cubes in three finishes white-balck-oak combined with a desk.

The colors chosen for the house are very calm, combining a great deal of wood and shades of blue and gray.

It was important for the owners to keep a very practical home with lots of storage space and still get a warm, modern, up-to-date home that matches the character of the family.

The Ahm House | Coppin Dockray Architects

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Location: Harpenden, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom

Year: 2018



Architects: Conceived by Jørn Utzon in 1961 | Renovation by Coppin Dockray in 2018

Drawing: Lydia Hair

Joinery: Kacper Kruglik

Photography: James O. Davies & Brotherton Lock


Conceived by Jorn Utzon in 1961 for his friend the structural engineer Povl Ahm, this house is recognised as one of the most important modern houses in Britain.

Povl Ahm was a partner at the Danish engineering practice Ove Arup & Partners and worked with Utzon on the Sydney Opera House. Designed by the two Danes, the house was created for Ahm and his young family on this suburban site in Hertfordshire. Coppin Dockray were asked by the new owners – a professional couple with a young family – to design the interiors for the house.

Coppin Dockray’s choice of furnishings reflects the physical and historic context of the house and its Danish roots.  The furniture collection works with the architectural journey – providing punctuation with key pieces where there are natural pause-points and at other times allowing the eye to effortlessly slide around the soft curves of the Jacobsen chairs to the lush green of the mature garden beyond.

The material qualities of the interiors, like the house, are natural and crafted, deliberately chosen to be long lasting and to develop their own patina over time. Coppin Dockray’s work included careful repairs to the Grade II Listed 1961 house and the reinstatement of some of the original joinery based on Utzon’s standard details.

Channeling the spirit of the home’s original designer, the late Joseph Esherick, daylight and landscape were the primary objectives of this contemporary transformation. Central to the design is a multi-storied interior garden atrium that captures outdoor space within the home’s interior and pulls daylight deep into the spaces within. At the rear, a new lower level physically connects the interior to the landscape as the façade reorients both indoor and outdoor spaces toward the views beyond while editing neighboring structures for mutual privacy. Earth and sky, heavy and light, is reinforced through materials of concrete, wood, glass, steel and diffused light.

Location: York St, St Kilda West, Victoria, Australia

Gross Floor Area: 320 m2

Year: 2017

2018 Shortlist Interior Design Excellence Awards (IDEA)  Best Residential – Single


Architects: Jackson Clements Burrows Architects

General Contractor: Belair Builders

An existing heritage building is transformed through the introduction of a modern, two-storey addition that playfully re-interprets the distinctive geometry of the original dwelling through a contemporary lens. Capturing abundant natural light and garden aspects, the new addition employs a refined and subtle palette of brick, steel and timber.

Capitalising on the site’s orientation and garden aspect, every component of the new addition is oriented to achieve maximum natural light and ventilation while also enjoying a leafy garden aspect.

A conscious effort has been made to retain the key heritage features and structure of the existing dwelling by providing a clear separation to the modern extension. The two buildings are connected via a glazed link screened by hit-miss brickwork and a courtyard that celebrate the existing architecture and cascade into the landscape clearly separating the heritage building from the proposed contemporary extension.

The form responds to the hips and gables of the prevalent existing heritage buildings. A central focus is the sculptural staircase, which delivers its occupants from the ground floor to a landing study nook, set under a folding origami, timber-lined ceiling. The downstairs living spaces, while all being open plan, are delineated by a series of levels. These levels choreograph an engaging journey through the various components of the space (living, kitchen, dining, study), imagining each as its own individual space yet linked through a palette of textured materials and clever sightlines that provide striking vistas taking in the depth of the site and its multiple facets.

Ranch House by The Archers

This slideshow requires JavaScript.



Location: Beverly Hills, California, USA
Year: 2016

Architects: The Archers


A rambling fifties ranch house within a canyon setting was extensively remodeled in the nineteen eighties, with unfortunate results. In lieu of restoration, which seemed implausible, we opted to keep the Beverly Hills ‘ranch’ vernacular but translate it through modernism. We looked to Eero Saarinen’s 1957 Miller House for cues on incorporating modern details – framing, casework and material combinations – within a postmodern ranch vocabulary. The new interior is highly detailed and precise, with a complex system of posts, beams and brickwork, all painted in many subtle shades and finishes of white, from dead-flat to high-gloss lacquer.

Like a divining stick locating water, this house directs itself to the view.

An existing house on the property has been completely reimagined as part of a larger schema for the site. A new timber screen acts like a hedge to define a protected courtyard space – a cultivated garden within the broader rolling hills of the Mornington Peninsula landscape. The new house branches from the old across the slope, unfolding to engage with expansive views stretching over Bass Strait and Port Phillip Bay. A skin of copper on the sides of the house is taut and crisply defining. It is sliced open to frame the views that have been divined from the site.

Entry is through a glass link between old and new where a glimpse of the view is afforded before venturing inside. Timber of local species is used to line the interior, with varying textures across floor, walls and joinery. The interior is like a cabinet itself, a place to wander through, a place for refuge and prospect.

Sunswept Drive by Bestor Architecture

Architects: Bestor Architecture

Interior design: DISC Interiors

Landscape design: Elysian Landscapes

Built on a breathtaking location in the hills of Los Angeles, this 1940’s ranch style house originally was a warren of small rooms. Bestor Architecture re-imagined and reorganized the house, transforming the cramped configuration into an open plan space with indoor-outdoor flow. The new layout connects the main living areas and master bedroom to the back yard, which has views to the distant mountains.

The client’s main wish was to have a kitchen that functioned as the heart of the main living area. Everything was opened up and connections were made with oversized glass windows in the front and back. The central fireplace was removed and the kitchen and living spaces were reconfigured as one shared space. All cabinetry was custom designed by Bestor Architecture.

Since 1995, Bestor Architecture has actively redefined Los Angeles architecture with a practice that rigorously engages the city through design, art, and urbanism. Increasingly, the firm applies L.A.’s lessons to national undertakings. She explores the architectural form through experiments in spatial arrangements, graphics, and color, which is evident in her projects from custom residences to headquarters for international companies. Her varied and progressive body of work connects with people on many levels, often outside the boundaries traditionally delineated for architecture. She believes that good design creates an engaged urban life and embraces the ‘strange beauty’ that enhances everyday life experience.

Barbara’s career is punctuated with inventive projects in a wide breadth of typologies. She has designed new ways of creating accessible urbanism in her “stealthy density” Blackbirds housing, groundbreaking retail and restaurant flagships, dynamic workspaces for Beats By Dre and Snap, award-winning experimental residences and pioneering arts projects that are deeply rooted in their communities and cultural context.

While maintaining a practice, Barbara has continuously taught at Southern California’s leading design schools from SCI-Arc to Woodbury University, where she is currently the executive director of the Julius Shulman Institute. She received her undergraduate degree at Harvard University, studied at the Architecture Association in London and received a MARCH at SCI-Arc. She is the author of Bohemian Modern, Living in Silver Lake.

The concept for this modern home was to translate an existing 1990s office fit-out into a contemporary residence while honouring the historic charm of the building and giving the owners a comfortable home with bold design modifications.

Introducing the impressive engineered double height brick vault ceiling to the restructured rear wing seemed an appropriate element for the Italianate style of the house.  This brings to modern design such elements of historical grandeur that gave rise to the great architecture of early civilisations bestowing the notion ‘the arch never sleeps’.

Renato D’Ettorre

Born in Italy, moved to Australia with his family in the 1960’s, studied architecture at the University of Technology, Sydney.

In 1984 Renato lived in Sardinia investigating many architectural sites around the mediterranean islands.  He later worked for Pier Luigi Nervi and Paolo Portoghesi in Roma and Harry Seidler and Romaldo Giurgola in Sydney.

Renato started his sole practice in 1990 after a commission for a house in South Coogee. The house, with a magnificent site by the sea, inspired Renato to take the opportunity to forge a personal path within the plurality of the modern architectural milieu.

The personal path chosen has manifested itself not only in his design values, but also in the practice of his architecture; an intuitive way of working in which projects are allowed to develop in their own good time through continual revision and modification, working through the endless design possibilities in architecture.

Renato’s architecture draws inspiration from past masters and civilizations, attempting to represent the present with a desire to leave enduring buildings for the future.

Created by bringing together layers of memories from the owners’ childhoods and their travels throught adult life.

The house began as an exercise in pragmatics. How to manage a number of existing site conditions including the overland flow of storm-water, sewer pipes, easements, planning rules, budget, as well as a 100-ear-old cottage that was slowly crumbling into a backyard jungle.
Sitting halfway up the ridge of the inner-city Brisbane suburb of Highgate Hill, the cottage’s backyard is oriented perfectly towards the north. Retained on the front boundary, the land falls around 2,5m from footpath to yard. The change in level means that the former one-bedroom cottage could grow by inhabiting the open under-croft below. The streetscape, and the cottage’s relationship to its twin neighbour, would remain intact without raising the house.
