Here’s a masterpiece work from Wespi de Meuron Architects — a renovated house located in Treia Marche a rarely domesticated village in Italy. Italy is a traditionally rich land and has given birth to lots of famous architects. Renovation has got multiple implications; natural resource management being the most prominent. In 1995 this building caught fire and was damaged. Since then it has been under the surveillance of the municipal authority.
The by Stephane Malka Architecture near the busy urban streets of Paris has been designed as a modern student residence. The construction is just a remodeling — without changing its original traits — of a pre-existent building. The only things new here are some wooden palettes which impart a new outlook to this structure.
The extremely high ceilings in the living area make a roomy and grandiose statement. The hanging globe lamps accentuate this height even further. The flight of stairs with a landing is neatly placed against a wall that occupies a minimum of space allowing full use of the ground floor without a big visual intrusion.
The Nettleton 199 project partner Greg Truen states the task was to create a building which would give a maximum view of the sea and to create a garden beside the mountain located near the site. They also wanted minimal exposure to the neighboring buildings. The residence overlooks the Atlantic Ocean to the west and its design gives prime-most importance to privacy such that it offers least vision to neighboring houses.
Architectural studio Moon Hoon with offices in Seoul designed an angled residential retreat in Korea. Featuring a distinct facade shaped out of several angled volumes the Panorama House gathers vistas of the surroundings through different-sized windows that frame the views from each room in a new and creative way.The angled facade allows views from different perspectives and strongly connects the interiors to the surrounding suburb.
The main living room divides into an entertainment section and dining section; and it branches further to other sections in this house. Glass windows offer unhindered vision to the exteriors whereas contemporary lighting gives a luxurious feeling to the interior. The kitchen is very spacious and you would see every appliance in a modern kitchen here. There are bar stools and a marble platform. Stylish bedrooms and post modern bathrooms make this residence really an irresistible one.
Geometries are brilliantly selected to make the building spacious enough out of a given limited area. Horizontal hinges are an example of their innovation and the hinges make the wooden pallets to shrink horizontally. This provides a large opening into the outer world despite the limited interior. Care has been given in every step of the Ame Lot Project to avoid stress on the ecology. And the Ame Lot seems to be an epitome of eco-friendly design.
