Splice House: Renovation by Stukel Stone (AU)

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)

The Park by !melk - Architecture

Photographer: Hanns Joosten

 

An unprecedented and unique urban infill project in Las Vegas has just been completed. The notorious Las Vegas Strip, today, is the most visited tourist destination in the world. The Strip recently received its first-ever park, a spectacular public space designed by !melk, that is destined to become the most trafficked park in the world. What makes this project remarkable is the fact that private corporations, the owners of the properties along Las Vegas Boulevard, recently came to realize the value of investing in outdoor public space versus traditional (buildings) real estate development.

We designed new furnishings for the sixth-floor hall of the Tod’s store on Omotesando, in Tokyo. The open, airy space is surrounded by large windows, so we designed frame-like furnishings reminiscent of the buildings visible outside, jostling together in various shapes and sizes.

The extension is built next to the old Town Hall on a lot with a generous view on the scenic Sambre valley. The ambitions were to amplify the public usage of the site and to preserve the ring of linden trees at its limits. Rather than to simply lay on the land, the building hovers thanks to an impressive cantilever structure – only the cafeteria is in contact with the ground and can therefore be used for events taking place in the park.
