The client’s requirement was for a pavilion to be connected to the main historic house causing the least visual interference with the surrounding parkland. The pavilion was for an indoor pool, and some space for fitness, service and leasure in a climate controlled space. The main house, an early 1900 liberty building had been renovated by the clients ten years previously. The main house ground floor sat 100 cm above the external ground and as such had little connection to the surrounding parkland.The client also desired a glass enclosed space attached to the main house to enjoy the view of its natural surroundings. The previous renovation of the house included landscaping and the addition of a small artificial lake in the south corner of the parkland. (text by act_romegialli)

A wooden cabin with sauna and bedroom on the island of Trossö, Sweden. Two large windows frame the windswept and poetic landscape: the ocean on one side, pines on the other, with a large sliding door effectively doubling the living area when open. The cabin contains a sauna and a 2 person bedroom/ living room. (text by Septembre)

A mono-brand store in the most important shopping district of Seoul, South Korea. The elegant design features neutral colours and sophisticated handmade surfaces highlighted by the subtle contrast between smooth and rough materials. The bags become pieces of art, creating accents of colour throughout the space. The essence of Florence is transmitted through the use of noble materials like marble for the entrance floor and linen on the walls. (text by Paolo Giachi)

A precious stone shop as an exhibition place. A gallery presenting a scenographic arrangement of merchandise and at the same time highlighting the values, for which these articles are admired for generations. Myriad of colours and forms. The characteristics coming to light only after arduous excavation from the bowels of the Earth. Characteristics formed by a geological force of the past so inconceivable we can only grasp its power from a large-format photographs of a rock face. (text by Henkai architects)

Apartment Tibbaut by RAS Arquitectura (ES)

The project is carried out in an underground space near the sea, with barely any outside lighting and in serious humidity conditions. However, the interior of the simply-built, very small structure — barely 55m2 — had a real monumental look, presided over by two octagonal stone pillars from which domes and vaults rise to cover the space and bear the weight of the upper floors.

Tyche Apartment by CaSA - Colombo and Serboli Architecture (ES)

The property occupies an art nouveau building of the Eixample district of Barcelona and was fully renovated by CaSA and Margherita Serboli to become the holiday apartment for an Italian family.

The original layout wasted considerable space and was poorly orientated. Its longitudinal distribution, forced by the transversal bearing walls, resulted in many densely separated small spaces, spared along a long corridor that isolated the two ends of the apartment.

The ‘Golden Cube’ student residence project is situated on the ‘A4 Est’ sector of Le Trapèze. This particular lot acts as a point of liason between the existing Boulogne and the new construction development. Here there is a strong importance surrounding the unification of urban density, diversity and pleasure, underscored by the incorporation of ecology and bio-diversity, in order to integrate nature into the heart of the urban environment.
