Splice House: Renovation by Stukel Stone (AU)

Photographer: Katherine Lu

 

The genesis of this project was a Dutch couple falling in love with Australia and wanting to make a home in the Sydney suburb of Wollstonecraft. The brief was distilled to the desire for spaces that were at once both tropical and austere, a wonderful contradiction which lead to a unique renovation of a typical semi-detached Federation dwelling. The project was ambitions in its aspirations, and Stukel Stone were the second architects to make an attempt for the owners. (text by Stukel Stone)

Stable in West Flanders by Studio Farris Architects (BE)

Fotograf: Koen Van Damme

 

Studio Farris Architects transformed a small barn into an office with meeting room, library, office desks and a resting/reading area. The original façade was restored and new openings were created in a functional way. A new “box” was designed and inserted into the original volume, and consists of a new shell that accentuates the pure form. This box-in-box system allows to improve energy efficiency and avoid any chemical reactions with sulphates in the ground and walls of the original farm. (text by Studio Farris Architects)
